I'm back after my vacation to the west coast and i'm still getting used to the time zones again. Got back yesterday morning. didn't go to vegas which i had first planned as that's been decided for spring. the trip was awesome though. i spent most of the time in L.A. and did a road trip to San Fran while going to other places. Anyways, what's a total surprise was this Amazon Japan package.
These stuff were supposed to ship in September w/ My-Otome vol.9, however, AJ decided to partially ship it! X( So now i'll be charged on customs for this partial shipment :(. So yeah, this pack includes My-Otome vol.7 & 8 w/ First Press 'photographs' (below...i had to include the Simoun ad ^_^) as well as my 'All about G.J?' official fanbook.
Y'all know (or should) that i'm a huge Toshihide Sano fan as well as a G.J? fan. I've been a fan of G.J? games ever since it's inception (in 2002), spun off from main company teck arts. Thus, i've been a Toshihide Sano fan since 2002 since he does all the artwork for the G.J? games. Which is why i bitch or compliment when his art is turned into anime. So imagine my excitement when i found out about this book from Shingo at HD. The All About G.J? book is your usual HCG book as it collects artwork from the games itself. Like the profile art and a few of the in-game cgs, but of course not all. There ARE some promo art like ones on telecards (sweeet). The book covers all the works from G.J?, from 2002 to 2006. Akibakei Kanojyo, Futago no Bosei Honnou and Ane to Boin are given the most coverage while their newer titles like 7nin ONLINE and Tsuma to Mama to Boin are given less coverage but still a considerable amount (no promo arts for these two ;_;). The book is 193 pages and is of great quality. There's also a foldout poster w/ one side featuring Renka in mahou shoujo outfit and the other side featuring Hatoko (Akibakei), Tomoe (Futago) and Rurisu (Ane) fully nude. Was this book worth the 3,200 yen? Definitely, if you dig Sano's beautiful art. Heres some safe shots that were hard to find :D:
Now that I'm back I definitely need catch up on some games as well as hentais + some doujins (T2's Bleach was AMAZING). Though w/ hentais I only have 2 more to watch for the month ^^. Jokei and Mana were AWESOME as expected. I'll have Jokei theme set up as well as my never ending ongoing mizugi theme.
on a somewhat game related news (to the above pic): Melty Blood: AC Version B, includes playable white len and extra 'quick action' button.
I've been posting some news about the My-Otome PS2 game and the Animesuki forum. so go there to check it out. That's it for gaming news of my interest as i don't feel like posting much of 'em.
I'll end off w/ my neverending mizugi theme w/ a Sano pic, since it WAS the focus of this post ;).
