Now this is what I call convenient! Apparently, there is such thing as a crane game that you can play on a web browser. This game goes by the name of Toreba, which was created by a game developing company known as Cyberstep. You know what the best part of it is? You actually get to win the items that you grab with the claw. If you do manage to win something, the Website will send the prize to your house. However, you might have to pay the shipping fee for it to be sent.
Each game cost 100 yen (Around US$1.20), which is pretty realistic when you think about it. As for prizes, there are figures of characters from Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Nanoha The Movie 1st, Strike Witches, Railgun, Angel Beats!, Baka and Test - Summon the Beast 2, and Nico Nico.
One of the best parts of this game is that the prizes are categorized by series, so you won't have to worry about getting a prize from a show that you don't care about. As a quick heads up, the Angel Beats! and Nico Nico figures are sold out, and the Nanoha game is having a few technical issues.
Another great thing about Toreba is that you will get to change the camera while you are playing, so that you can position the claw properly. Thus giving you the entire crane game experience from the comfort of your own home. Be sure to check out the images below to see if you are interested in any of the prizes.
