(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.
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… 🙃
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.
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.
And here’s the last eroge I bought this month. I really have no idea when I’ll finally get around playing this. Maybe I should push it from my backlog queue a bit? Mainly due to the sheer number of goodies I have.
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.
But anyway, yeah, dragons. Not this kind of dragon. Just your usual dragon girls. With horns and stuff. I’m still not sure if I’ll like it because I generally don’t like horns. But it’s Takano Yuki, so it could be okay. Also not all of them have horns all the time which is where I’m hopeful.
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 👌
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.
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).
