Maitetsu Last Run!! Suruga-Ya B2 tapestry (take 3)

(take 2 doesn’t exist because it’s almost the same as the first one but without damaged top area and slightly better stitching)

So, um, yeah, that’s a thing. I got hint from Kurisu-san’s blog about Lose reprinting this tapestry using different manufacturer due to complaints about overall quality. There’s no announcement or anything and there’s only one comment mentioning they complained about it directly to Lose and offered replacement.

Figured I have nothing to lose (ha ha), I tried contacted Lose as well and surprisingly they also offered me replacement even though I did say I was only concerned about print quality. There are a few other issues beyond that but mine wasn’t too bad (after the first replacement which I’ve never posted here).

This arrived yesterday and sure enough the print quality is better now compared to the original. Well, apart of the weird red bar now invading the left and right sides as well for some reason. At any rate, it’s way better now.

Zoomed in for comparison with old version:

Unfortunately details on this whole deal is really vague. There’s no announcement or anything and I don’t remember Suruga-Ya mentioning this at all apart of it’s restocked (presumably with new version of the tapestry). I also have no idea on the policy Lose has regarding getting the replacement. I suppose if the stitching is pretty bad (kind of like my first one maybe?) it’ll be good reason for that.

Anyway, I’m done with this. And I should get around actually playing the game… someday… ๐Ÿ™ƒ

FGO (Gudaguda Ace) Double Okita B2 tapestry

The white balance is rather off btw

Not quite the same event but they’re released at around the same time so yay. I have the poster of this as well but I guess I don’t need it anymore. If only the background is slightly fancier than just plain white but hey it’s Okita! Okita Alter is just bonus.

The material is quite interesting. The product page says “matte suede” which is new to me. It feels pretty much like usual thin suede but very slightly thicker. Unfortunately it’s still not thick enough to block light but it seems better than normal suede.

The color seems a bit off but the print itself is sharp.

FGO under the same sky – Mash Kyrielight B2 landscape tapestry

An all ages tapestry for once. It’s from FGO 5th anniversary event.

Back view of Mash with one piece(?) dress and translucent veil. Not half bad.

The material is unfortunately just usual thin material. It’s not actually written on the product page and some FGO tapestries are of double suede material so I kinda hoped this one is as well. At least the print is okay-ish. Seems a bit blurry but overall pretty good.

Einstein yori ai o komete Melonbooks B2 tapestry

Pardon the terrible lighting and all those creases.

It’s an Aikome tapestry of Romi. Too bad the background is just abstract art. It’s at least better than plain color, I guess. Nice naked ribbon, of course.

Thin material with okay print quality. There’s something weird about the cloth itself that it seems to be not quite square. Or maybe it just needs some time to be evenly stretched.

Einstein yori ai o komete

Now that’s one heck of eroge box cover. When first seeing it I thought the girls seem quite a lot nicer than I remember. Especially around the breasts area. And then I realized it’s their past. Or something.

The box is big and contains quite a few stuff:

That acrylic panel at top left sure looks rather nice. If only I have space to actually put it on…

The book is only 24 pages so the 7000 yen extra must be mostly went to that panel.

A.M.R Apolo sweets ver. dakimakura cover

Woo \o/

This is her third cover. I thought there are more but nope, only three. Still a lot anyway and probably the most for single characters I currently own including derivative works (which I barely own to begin with).

Haven’t opened so can’t comment on actual feel too much but it seems like the usual fine deal ๐Ÿ‘Œ

I think I still like the very first one best though.

Sakukumo Sofmap B2 tapestry

It sure was low effort photo as can be seen from all the creases.

Anyhow, here’s the Sofmap store bonus tapestry of the game. It’s double suede material so it’s nice. Sofmap sure has been doing well recently with all those thicker, good material. The print is fine as well as usual.

Ideally I’d Suruga-Ya but the material and voice drama bonus nudged me towards Sofmap.

As for the illustration itself, well, it’s fine. Would be better with kneesocks or pantyhose.

I just noticed this is my first Korie Riko tapestry.

Sakura no kumo, scarlet no koi (game, OST)

New stuff post at last! The photo directory says 2020-10-02, and the actual date I cropped them was 5th. And then it took me another 4 days to finally do this.

So, yeah, eroge I bought last month. And this is only the first one.

I forgot to include this in the main photo above

Bought from Sofmap and only there as I bought this mainly for the story which apparently is good? Well, that’s nice. I’ll probably someday get around checking Amagure as well.

As per the title, here’s the soundtrack which was released the same day. Bought off Amazon as it’s the cheapest one. I think.

Update 2020-10-09 01:39: I forgot to mention but the voice drama is all ages.

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Amiami B2 tapestry

Pardon the terrible creases because I didn’t feel like taking out my ironing setup at the time.

But anyway it’s from Amiami, sized B2, with thin material. Actually this is the only thin material tapestry for this title. Amazing. Print quality itself is relatively fine. Probably as good as print quality on thin material goes.

That’s an interesting… pose… thingy. I actually just got another one with similar composition few months ago. This one is way nicer though (smaller).

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Game + extras

I’m supposed to post this last week.

The game itself and various extras. Sofmap box is big as usual.

And I’m not even sure what the hell with that large circle acrylic key holder. “Yurayura acrylic charm” according to the listing page. I guess that’s a thing.

Special soundtrack is as usual will be rendered pointless once the full soundtrack is released.

Phone stand could be useful if I actually have space on my table.

Shikishi is missing one for Nagiko because I don’t want to buy from official store just for that. That said I don’t even have much use for shikishis to begin with.

The target is to actually play this sometime this month…

Eshi100 10 artbook (and 10th anniversary book)

It’s pretty much just habit now.

The 10th anniversary book contains some interviews and small review of previous series. Unlike the other book, this one is only in Japanese.

The main artbook is usual deal. Although they botched up printing Shiromochi Sakura illustration and ended up slipping in separate page for that. That’s a bit annoying.

Cafe Stella Drama CD

I actually got this weeks ago but never ended up posting or even opening this until today.

Just like Riddle Joker the MC is voiced here as well. He doesn’t seem to have done anything major. Or maybe it’s just me not knowing seiyuu world.

I haven’t checked it at all \o/ I’m not expecting something like Riddle Joker (which I very much liked because Ayase) but I sure hope it’s fun.

Weekly shonen magazine 2020-34 – FGO Summer Poster

B4-sized pin-up poster from the magazine. I cut off the binding area and took the poster off.

I initially hoped for this to be included in the digital version but annoyingly there’s no such luck. RIP 300yen.

Apparently they’ll be selling fancier poster version of this. Will need to wait until next number for the full information.

Okita part is a bit too small ๐Ÿ˜ž
