This arrived few days ago. I didn’t know when it’s supposed to arrive and just assumed it would take few months just like usual Moeoh stuff. Except it’s not because probably it’s closer to Comiket goods, except online.
So, yeah, here it is.
The material is double suede… the lower quality one just like their other tapestries. That said, I think it seems a bit better lately? Or maybe just the B1 version? I’m not sure but I don’t hate the quality. I actually did check their other tapestry of this size and it seemed good enough which is why I ended up getting this one.
That said, there’s a permanent fold mark which I tried to iron out and failed. At least it’s not obvious unless I look closer. The print quality still could be better – a more uniform color and slightly sharper image would be nice. And the weird border… they need to stop doing that.
The image itself is pretty great. It hits a lot of my fancy – playful expression, naked bowtie, useless skirt and nopan, and knee-socks (or is it stockings). With garter belt. Would be better if her breasts are smaller and also shorter hair. But still very good overall.
Also I don’t have many tapestries of heroine with glasses. Actually, let me do a quick check…
There are two total it seems. One is Kokoiro bonus and the other is from Under Wears series drawn by Natsume Eri. Both of mine are sold already though so there’s none which I have at the moment.
Another side note, she’s also almost similar to the one Muririn drew two years ago. Or here’s the better quality photo; ironed and stuff.
Interestingly it suffers similar permanent fold mark at similar location except worse. Also while the print detail is fine, I hate the color. It’s lacking contrast and can be more saturated especially compared to the magazine version. Sold it a long time ago.
It’s a thing. I went to the closest physical store because otherwise shipping fee. That said there’s parking fee involved so I didn’t end up saving that much.
Not only that, there’s a small damage on the middle right side. Thankfully it’s hard to spot from the front side. I considered going back to the store to at least attempt getting replacement but figured it’s not obvious for normal display and I don’t want to go out especially at current situation.
The material is usual thin suede but at least the print is good.
It’s Shiori. I don’t think the underwear appears in the game. Too bad no knee-socks.
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… 🙃
