P. A. Works 20th Anniversary Theme Song Collection

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…

My top three are:

  1. My Soul, Your Beats!
  2. Brave Song
  3. mind as judgement

Kakenuke Seishun Sparking! Nagiko & Shiori B2 Tapestry

This one was originally used for bonus paper during their Winter 2020 Event.

I don’t usually buy all ages tapestry but this one is kinda too nice to skip. Would be even better if it’s Kikka instead of Nagiko.

Unlike the Valentine Kikka one, this one has proper background which is nice. Can definitely use more Shiori. Especially in her cosplay costume.

Print quality and all is similar to the Valentine Kikka one.

Kakenuke Seishun Sparking! Valentine Kikka B2 Tapestries

This actually arrived quite a long time ago.

It’s Kakenuke! It’s Kikka! Also it’s lewd for once! It’s getting rather rare somehow for Saga Planets nowadays. I hope this hints a trend change or something.

Similarly this is the all ages version. I definitely prefer the lewder version.

It’s also kinda rare seeing Kikka wearing knee-socks. For some reason most of my Sagaplanets favorite heroines don’t wear knee-socks. It’s very saddening.

The background definitely can use more work though. Abstract art is fine (better than blank) but proper background is preferred.

Printed by Fules, no problem on print quality and material though it seems not quite proper rectangular cut. At least it’s not as bad as A&J…

Core Magazine 2020-12 Ikegami Akane – Kumako B2 Tapestry

Core Magazine tapestries sure take a very long time until release…

Anyway, it’s Kumako. Unfortunately I still prefer Apolo, Choco, and Taruto over her.

This one isn’t too bad though. Differing knee-socks color is kinda interesting as well. The nipples seem a bit weird though.

Despite what I said about preferring the others, I like her expression best compared to the other two tapestries from similar series.

I sure wonder what’s with her ring there… Pretty sure the other girls don’t have ring attached.

It’s usual Core Magazine tapestry business. Assembly was required and the material is nice double suede. No complaint on print quality either.

Now waiting for tapestry of Taruto (and Marble?)…

Evangelion Music CDs

I think these are my first Evangelion-related stuff that isn’t movie ticket.

The pre-rebuild music CD as per photo above and the latest (is it?) Utada Hikaru CD which includes music of all rebuild movies.

Annoying the Rei cover is only available for LP version. I don’t have LP nor plan to have one…

As aside, here’s my top three Eva songs:

  1. Cruel Angel Thesis
  2. Beautiful World
  3. One Last Kiss

A.M.R 2021-03 Taruto B2 Tapestry

Apparently I forgot to post about this. I even forgot to take photo of this at all.

It’s Taruto. In her usual Alice in Wonderland attire except way sexier. Way more revealing. Which is nice. Could use smaller breasts but I can make exception for her.

I think it would be better if she’s zoomed in a bit more.

Nice Choco and Apolo pillow on bottom left. What are those pills at the bottom though…

On material and print quality, it’s A.M.R usual… which means it’s a bit on thin side despite being double suede. The print quality itself is at least pretty good.

Senkou no Clarias Tora no Ana B2 Tapestry

It sure took me a very long while to finally open this. I’ve even finished the game.

Camus. It’s so nice they kept her socks on. Too bad just the only remains of her detective attire are the shorts and hat. Cape where (屮゜Д゜)屮

Otherwise nice expression and pose.

It looked better than I initially thought. I just noticed her underwears here are different compared to her first H-scene.

Double suede material and pretty good print quality. No complaint there.

I wonder if they’ll make more Clarias goods… A dakimakura cover would be nice.

Sei no Shoujo

The only title I bought this month. Looking again, it sure is huge o_o

Bought from Amazon because cheap. So cheap they sent it using normal mail just padded envelope. Thankfully the shikishi arrived in one piece.

The first one hasn’t even arrived for me so it’ll be a long while until I finally play this…

Kakenuke Seishun Sparking! Hijiri Kikka Valentine 2021 (ecchi ver.) Acrylic Figure

About one month late valentine. I don’t think I’ve ever bought acrylic figure by itself. Usually as bonus of other stuff.

It’s Kikka. In maid uniform with breasts exposed. And thighhighs. That “I love you” text at the bottom is a nice touch.

Constructed!

Hopefully I’ll remember to dust her frequent enough as I don’t have any showcase. That’s one reason I prefer tapestries to begin with anyway.

That said, the size is kinda small especially as I put her right next to Taruto acrylic clock.

A.M.R 2021-03 Kumako Dakimakura Cover

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…

Extra photo.

It sure is nice having both side lewd.

Senkou no Clarias

It’s a very late post. A bit over a week late.

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.

Kakenuke Seishun Sparking! Hijiri Kikka dakimakura cover

This actually arrived few days ago but I forgot to make post about it. I like her expression on this side. The other side is fine-ish, I think. I like both better than Shiori’s at least.

I just checked the blog I linked for Shiori and sure enough they put up another post for Kikka. Looking pretty good.

I haven’t had Aqua Premium (is it how it’s spelled in English?) but I think this one is fine. It’s a bit shiny but the thickness and feel are pretty good.

Tamayura mirai – Nekotengu Hanako voice drama CD & B2 Tapestry

I got information a while back that Amazon was selling this for 2000. It seemed good enough and the game has good rating on EGS so I ended up grabbing this. Maybe I’ll get around actually playing this one day.

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.

Kakenuke seishun sparking! Hiiragi Shiori dakimakura cover

First dakimakura from Kakenuke series. Well, first of only two, that is.

Too bad neither side is her cosplay attire. That would’ve been nice.

I haven’t opened it yet but from this review it looks like the important part is drawn quite a bit more detailed than usual Saga Planets? And more wet as well.

Kinda wish the back side is smiling instead. Also too bad no knee socks.

So, uh, yeah, writing it, my wishlist for her is pretty much her last h-scene. This one isn’t bad per se, it just doesn’t quite tick my fetishes preferences.

The print is at least seems fine. It’s as sharp as it can get from what I can tell.

iroiro Tora no ana B2 Tapestry

I need to iron this, yes

The last stuff I have on my queue for last week. Except it only arrived today because Tora no ana is slow like that.

It’s Choco. Wearing cat ears and tail…plug. I especially like the gloves and thighhighs 👌

The head seems a bit off to me but I’m not sure why. Her expression is fine though.

I think this is also her first R-18 tapestry.

Just like the Melonbooks bonus, this one is thin material and okay print quality. Could be sharper but honestly I’d prefer it to be double suede first.

Koi to senkyo to chocolate High Resolution Edition

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 =/

iroiro Melonbooks B2 Tapestry

And here’s the tapestry that comes with Ikegami Akane Art Works – iroiro Melonbooks Limited Edition.

I’m pretty sure is this the first Apollo R18 tapestry. It’s her usual uniform (except undressed). Especially like the skirt lift and panty pull and thighhighs parts. Pretty nice overall.

I wish this is double suede tapestry. Especially as Core Magazine then decide to sell tapestry of the bear girl separately. At least the print is pretty good.

Ikegami Akane Art Works – iroiro (and Melonbooks clearfile)

Her latest artbook is finally here. Good stuff.

I think I already saw most of them except for the social game section. I knew about Heroic Song but not the Dungeons Lord. I also missed some of the E2 illustrations.

Nice summary book of some of her works. I do wish there are more full page images instead of multiple smaller images on single page.

And the extra from Melonbooks, a clearfile. Back side is more or less same image.

FGO Summer 2020 B4 Poster

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.

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… 🙃

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.
