Red Packets (Angbao) Design for Otakus?

It's always in a Chinese New Year tradition for the elder especially the married to give to the juniors (who are not married) Red Packet aka Angbaos. Most of the time inside the Red packet are some token of money. The amount of the content may vary.

The red packet would have some design with wording or wishes that suppose to be positive like bring good fortune for the new year. Through the times, the design of the red packets had changed but the essence of blessing remains. Since now most of the younger generation are into Japanese Anime and some even called themselves Otaku, here are some of the design I came out with to collaborated these two culture together just for the fun of it.

For Lucky Star I think I do not need to explain much. The wording "吉星高照" means Lucky star shine upon you.

As for Keroro Gunso, it's "心想事成" meaning you will get whatever your heart desire. For keroro I am pretty sure he wanted lot of Gunpla. So that for you Gunpla fans! LOL

Ikkitousen design is for those that love mature anime. The wording "一马当先" instead of "一骑当千" means One horse above the rest. Have a good start and be the first or winner in everything you do.

Last but not least since the coming year is Chinese Zodiac Tiger, here's a fierce but cute looking Palm-size tiger from Toradora! for you guys. Have a good year ahead with great strength and good health like the tiger. ROAR!!

The template of the red packet was taken from Kong technology with some modification on the design of course. :)

So which one is your favourite?

If I got the 'Ikkitousen' ang pow, I think I won't simply give it to another. First, I am still single, second, no need to explain more, you know that... :3
They are all very nice but the last one is especially for this year. Happy CNY and may all those well wishes go to you and family.
