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.
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.
(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.
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).
And then there are a lot of tapestries up for pre-order.
Cute Tail series tapestries. It’s part of release of illustration book. They then go on and release tapestries of them as well. It looks like the genital parts are censored which is unfortunate (as seen above).
Takano Yuki above is the most interesting one but censored.
Some interesting ones like from Piyodera Mucha, Kimishima Ao, Mikagami Mamizu, Suimya, and maybe others. Still not enough to entice me buying though. Especially for Kimishima Ao, I will be getting a tapestry for Einstein anyway. Worse background but cuter character.
Well Tora no ana already have loads of random things occasionally anyway. Including a rather interesting tapestry from Sekiya Asami. Nice it’s now in stock again after sold out when I first found it. It’s double suede as well so it should be rather good. I don’t think I want to deal with landscape B1 tapestry anymore though. The perspective is a bit… interesting as well (or rather, confusing).
I like this one better than the rest though so there’s that. If only it’s not so blurry…
As usual, it’s the thicker, double suede material. The print is overally pretty blurry. I’m pretty sure Gayarou’s recent tapestries are all rather blurry. The one I linked above is the least blurry one (if not on the sharper side) but as far as I can remember, the later ones are all rather bad. At this point it’s probably just the style. That’s rather unfortunate.
