This was a thing. It’s a 4 discs business which I think they use the back side of the box as front side. This resulted in the tray sometimes getting stuck upon closing.
I watched quite a few P. A. Works titles though now I think about it there are only few songs I really like from them. Or maybe it’s just because I don’t have them in my playlist and this could change it…
Apparently it’s supposed to arrive next month but some reason already arrived? It’s also arrived for others.
I haven’t opened it but it should be the usual stuff. The expression could be better though especially the back side. I think I still prefer Apolo and Choco over her. We’ll see if she gets better later.
That reminded me Marble hasn’t appeared for a long while…
I’ve actually started playing this and halfway finishing my first heroine route.
It’s from Tora no Ana so there’s that Camus acrylic figure bonus. As for the tapestry, I don’t think I’ve even opened it yet. Much less taking its photo. Maybe I’ll get around it when I enter her route (when).
The main story is pretty good although the romance is a bit lacking. There’s just some short bits here and there and then suddenly things happen.
The print is okay-ish I guess? The material isn’t the best double suede material I’ve ever seen but at least it’s not as bad as that Maitetsu Last Run or post-A&J Moeoh tapestries. It kind of reminds me of Melonbooks double suede tapestries.
Oh and the CD:
I haven’t opened it but from the track listing it seems to be the usual ecchi voice drama with full sex part.
The other eroge I bought this month. Also from Getchu. The box is very hollow and only contains a thin manual leaflet and the game disc.
Also the actually game CGs are only 1920×1080 (or x1440) despite the product page saying “supports 4k”. It does show 4k resolution option but then everything is upscaled, which is just like what every other games are. I don’t have original the game anyway and 1080p is good enough upgrade for me but some people did complain about it.
That said, they cropped the CG from 4:3 to fit 16:9. Extending the sides would’ve been better but I guess they’re not going to do that. Given the full price they demanded, they should’ve done that…
Oh and even the 1080p CGs seem rather upscaled. It’s just on par for a sprite milking release, I suppose =/
I don’t know what to call this. This thing arrived last week. It’s from Weekly Shonen Magazine campaign last August. It’s not the shiny poster paper but some thick matter paper. Well maybe there’s poster with that material as well.
The size is B4 which is actually the same as the pinup in the magazine itself. I kinda hoped for it to be slightly bigger but hey it’s free(-ish) after all.
Maybe I should look into getting some kind of photo frame so I can properly display this.
(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.
