Finally bought a new office gaming chair from Amazon Japan, and it’s the “GTRACING Office Gaming Chair“!
I have been wanting to get a proper chair since E (nickname for le bf) only provided me with a foldable chair.
I was getting backaches from the foldable chair, and I ended up slouching on the computer table whenever I play games, watch Youtube/Netflix or do some freelance work.
So, I waited till I had enough savings to buy this chair, and it was relatively affordable, at ￥17,770 on Amazon Japan! Further more, there was a ￥1,000 yen discount, and I had a gift card which I used to offset the remaining balance.
When the delivery came, the box is pretty huge, and it is definitely not easy to carry it. E and I had a small quarrel that morning when the box came because I wanted to fix up the chair as soon as possible while he insisted on having his breakfast. So, I grumbled while trying to fix the chair until he reluctantly comes to help after hearing me grumble.
The chair isn’t that easy to set up especially on the connection part between the seat and the backrest. I’m not sure how people can manage to do it alone, but I guess I needed someone to help me out.
I took around 1.5 hours to fix up the chair because I accidentally broke a part of the hanging rack previously. And affixing the castors was “not easy”. E tried to force in the castors but failed terribly. In the end, all it needed was a push.
– Not easy to fix, best to find another person to help
– Not expensive, affordable
– No fanciful designs and some of the designs are loud
– Chair is quite comfy
On the overall, I find that it is pretty good for now despite the price sold on Amazon Japan, because brands like SecretLab and AKRACING are pretty expensive.
Hope this review has helped if you’re thinking of getting a gaming chair in Japan!
