I've been seeing this thing called YaoiCrate around lately: https://twitter.com/YaoiCrate

Is this related to the FujoBox? https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fujobox-a-yaoi-goodies-subscription-box#/

I seem to remember reading a tweet saying that YaoiCrate wasn't affiliated with whatever unfulfilled crowdfunded crate company people were asking about, so I'm assuming probably not related?

tbh, I'd been assuming that fan crates were kinda on their way out of fashion, are they not after all?

I was wondering about that too. Shipping internationally seems pretty difficult nowadays. Also after a little bit of clicking around it looks like they are trying to do a otaku and hentai related crate too?

Hmm, trying to do a more general otaku crate seems like a bad idea, that market's been well-cornered for years now. Hentai might work a little better but even that seems like a headache and depending on what they included, they'd be limited in where they could send it.

I did fill out their survey the other week because sure, why not, chance for a free thing, but I can't say that I'm planning on subscribing.

Yeah, I filled out the survey cause maybe free stuff, too.

The market is pretty well cornered for general stuff. I don't know much about all the offerings for general otaku subscription boxes, though. I generally didn't even want to look cause it's hard to justify the expense, especially since I tend to like the weird, unpopular anime...

I'm already subbed to several artists on Patreon, so I don't know if I can fit in another monthly subscription even if I want to. Depends on what's in it, I guess.

Huh... got it. I guess I'll just do their surveys and wait and see?

Okay so random update I guess on this. Guess they have a website, mascot and pricing up already. Though I guess I'm still a little confused about what could be in this crate (I guess mostly merch) but even then...I feel like BL is one of those things were people have really particular tastes and being able to buy it yourself is ideal? Grated maybe in that case I'm not the target market 😓  (just some random rambling I guess because I'm confused)

Has anyone here signed up for Yaoicrate? I didn't have enough money to put aside for it ultimately but I am interested in knowing what is in the box and what goods they have. I think they might also be publishing manga based on what they said on Twitter?
