Otaku buys Spy x Family gum and gets his heart broken
Spy x Family should be the most popular anime of the current season, the manga premiered in 2019 and has sold very well even before its anime, and now we already have reports that it is selling even more.
Along with the anime of course began to sell goods wanting to take advantage of the success of the characters, such as a gum from Spy x Family that is being sold in partnership with Marukawa Seika.
Anyway, there is an otaku that went viral on the Japanese internet because he recorded a video of him opening a pack of Spy x Family gum, first he got a pack with the cute Anya on the package:
He then opens the package with a pair of scissors to reveal what’s inside, and then at another point he takes out the gum:
Here is the product you expect, after all you bought a pack of gum from Spy x Family, so the least that should come is the damn gum, however this otaku was disappointed!
Right after taking out the gum he shows that the package did not come with any gifts, no stickers, no other little things from the anime, just the gum, he was hoping that the special collaboration between the anime and the gum would come with gifts in the packages.
Now comes the worst, because at the end of the video, he shows that he bought a box of these packs of gum:
Yeah man, you flinched on that one, there’s really no giveaway in this collaboration with Marukawa Seika, but then, why did this otaku think there would be one?
In the fall of 2020, Spy x Family did a collaboration with a different manufacturer of chewing gum, and in the products from that manufacturer came giveaways, stickers with different illustrations, he probably thought that was the case in this current collaboration.

“Seriously, I’m crying, this makes me just a gum otaku” he said as he posted his video and it went viral on social media in Japan:

That was some of the audience’s reactions to seeing the suffering of our friend above:
“I think I did the same thing.”
“You really hope to have some kind of prize in it, don’t you? Have fun with all the jaw-dropping exercise you have coming up.”
“It would be one thing if you had just bought one or two packages, but the whole box? Sorry but I have to laugh too”
“Looks like you’ll be living the gummy life for a while.”
Each pack of these comes out to only 54 yen, so maybe he didn’t spend that much on this box, if it was just this one. One person commented that he can make his own gifts, because there are stores that sell these materials and he can use the illustrations of the packages, which are very cute.
