    Okay, I'm going to buy water salad just to open it say ew and throw it out the window. The Pocari Sweat doesn't look too bad.
    I would bow down before a Ramune vending machine though.

Along with anime's globalization, the Gashapon industry is experiencing a boost in popularity even outside Japan. They are considered as collectibles and their prices can be high depending on the rarity. The term gashapon is also used to describe the vending machines that drop 'em toys.

    Pens, odd-looking ones.

    Random souvenirs ranging from traditionally designed handkerchiefs to wallets.

    False teeth, YES, false teeth. But i think they're of toy quality not dental quality.

    yes i've also seen vending machines that drop socks. Like the pens, they also looked odd to me.

    Bonnets designed after Sanrio characters. This, i tried. I wanted a Badtz Maru but ended up having a Hello Kiitty instead.

    Collectible cards and Stickers

    Cellphone accessories lie wrist straps, bags, laces, and some cutesy things that i'm not familiar with.


    T_T... that's like everything i want in the whole world... well, minus the false teeth...

    anyways, if there's one thing i'm so touristy about Japan, it's the vending machines... like, if Darling and i were to ever go, i'd be on my best behavior (to not embarrass him) but it would all go out the door once i see the vending machines with pretty wallets, cute hats, and cell phone charms... and of course i'll buy some school girl panties to sell on eBay, cuz hey, i gotta pay for school somehow~!

    I remember when playing Shenmue for the Sega Dream cast, they had some sonic figures and other really cool stuff in these vending machines, they had alot of anime stuff in it too I wonder if its much like Japan to this day, that was a really good game.

    Re: vending machines

    I've seen the Gashapon ones and the ones containing Cellphone accessories. I've also heard of ones that give away collectors cards and stickers and stuff - weren't there specific japanese Pokemon/Digimon cards you could only get from Japan in these machines? And yes, they do sell "used" schoolgirl items, or any particular label, in these machines too. However, I'd love to know how you guarantee that the item came from a schoolgirl and not some horrible hairy old age woman, or just happened to be not used at all. o_o

    ... Manga has been sold through vending machines, although it is often hentai. This is why some of my contacts in other countries are more of the opinion that manga is a "mass produced" item, and thus, not as good quality as some other comics. : ( Some countries are REALLY into manga and anime right now, and yet other ones have thrown them out quite quickly, seeing them as nothing but the previously stated. </3

    They sold condoms/contraception in vending machines HERE years ago. Sometimes you can still find the odd machine once or twice around. Not the normal vending machines either, the type thats just like, you put a 20p coin in it and turn the dial and the little egg pops out. xD The gashapon-style. The machine kids use to buy little plastic trinkets and toys and stuff from. lol
