Items for SASUNARUFAN13

Naruto


Like her name suggests, SASUNARUFAN13 got a lot of Naruto related items!

The first item was a small and rare set from the 50th Anniversary Weekly Shonen Jump Exhibition Vol.3 ENTRY #156534 . Inside the small package were an illustration sheet ITEM #770933 , netsuke good-luck strap ITEM #770931 and a nice looking sticker ITEM #770934 .

I knew these were mini puzzles ITEM #770914 & ITEM #770911 , but I was actually surprised at how small these were! SASUNARUFAN13 told me these were exclusively made images for the puzzles and highly sought after items by Naruto fans! She was very happy to find them on Suru.

Then she had also ordered this illustration sheet reproduction ITEM #770929 , but it was sealed so I kept it like that. I assume the quality is similarly high to her earlier bought ITEM #747126 !

Then we go to what is probably the funniest item of this whole loot: ITEM #770936 . It's a high quality strap with a really cool image, but...

The person I got for the local anime forum secret santa this year is a really big fan of Fire Emblem and specifically Takumi. I found this Takumi Mook ITEM #763652 that she did not own yet and bought it for her. Turns out that she 100% expected to receive this item as apparently this character does not have a high amount in merchandise. Ah, oh well, at least she really enjoyed getting it, haha!

I also got this Atelier artbook ITEM #43624 for her, but I hugely overspend the group budget with it, as I also already had bought 2 straps for her (shipped in a different package, so not in this loot blog). That forum is pretty strict about the budget to keep it as fair as possible for everyone. Thankfully she was so kind to buy it from me, so I did not make much loss by buying this item. I personally love the Atelier series, but my I'm slowly quitting or slimming down on 'side'-collections, which is why I did not want to keep it for myself.

The book covers almost everything from the Atelier franchise, from the beginning until the 2009 release date of the book.

I am not that well known with the older installments myself as I personally only started playing this franchise from the PS3-era, but the character designs are always very good.

I find this one so cute, I mean, look at how flustered he is with a girl walking in on him taking his shirt off? Can someone tell me if there is more context in this scene? Because most guys (especially with a body like that) would have no issue showing their chest like that, are they an (almost) couple?

At the end of the book there is an interview with the creators and an bonus CD. I asked the recipient what's on it and apparently it's an short bonus soundtrack CD.

All the stuff wrapped I didn't have Christmas wrapping paper anymore OTL and ready to ship off! (Blue package = Mook, big white package = Poster, small white package = the straps. The Atelier book was seperately in the package.)

Stuff for myself:

Baccano!


I'm always happy when I manage to grab a few Baccano! items I did not own yet!

The next book is an doujinshi ITEM #771089 that was listed as 18+ containing multiple franchises and had one example page showing some SFW artwork from Baccano!. Being the Baccano! collector and seeing this doujin for cheap, I was really curious and picked it up.

This was the page shown in the example and...also the only page Baccano! related. Oh well, Miria and Czeslaw are definitely looking cute!

The other pages are either sketch- or linework and are also very modest, the cover is the most '18+' of this whole book. I got the feeling that because normally this circle produces 18+ material, that this book was mislabeled even by themselves as the cover mentions 'for adult only'. Unless the small stories next to the artwork are 18+, but I doubt it.

The next doujinshi ITEM #770946 I was really happy to have found. It's an pairing book of Claire x Chane, with a ton of pages and lots of different artists collaborating. It's also quite a 'recent' release, with the book being from 2017. I'm always happy to see a small, but hardcore group of fans supporting this franchise!

The book opens with a few pages in color and after that is all black-and-white. Mainly comics, but some loose artwork-pages too.

The styles of all the artists is very different. Most of the stories are short and cute moments of them together, things like them going on dates, eating together etc. With how much pages this book also has, I really recommend it to fans of this couple!

The first Chrono Crusade item is a special one: a 34-page booklet with the key animation drawings for the anime OP, it was an Pre-order Bonus with the 3rd DVD of Chrono Crusade (not allowed in the database).

Next up was the 3rd Drama CD ITEM #770958 from the Chrono Crusade manga. A pretty long Drama CD, lasting over one hour. As it's based on a later moment in the manga, we now get a lot of story about Rosette and Joshua's youth and them first bonding with Chrono, especially the peaceful days Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerup until everything goes to shit. Mixing-wise I was actually surprised at how deep the bass sounded, all the voice acting and sound effects were of very high quality too. The last track of the CD is a short song, of which the singing is a bit...strange. The two singing voices are not really a good match together.

I think this is the first CD I ever owned that does not mention the track names and run time on the back.

The print on the CD is really neat and you can feel a bit of the relievo pattern.

The booklet has some cute artwork and is mainly images from the manga, but now (partially) colored.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles

And now for an item I've talked about many times before in my blog and I finally bit the bullet, despite it's high aftermarket price.

The Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles original soundtrack ITEM #54354 double CD! Crystal Chronicles is one of my all-time favorite games and I withheld from buying this CD over other collectibles because of it's price. The soundtrack is absolutely amazing, it's mostly fantasy-style folk music and it uses a lot of unique instruments. Even if you are not into this franchise, I really recommend everyone to give a try to a couple of songs on this soundtrack as it's so captivating! Overall, this is probably the highest audio quality you can get this music in. Definitely worth a listen with good headphones and/or speakers. It's especially nice to listen to the 2 discs in a row, as disc 2 has a couple of more dark and eerie variations of the songs of the original CD.

The back of the CD has one of the opening sequences of the game with a filter on it, making it look less like 3D graphics. And hey! This marks my second CD without having any info about the track names or length on the backside!

The book also tells information about the different instruments used to create the soundtrack. That organ you hear a lot in the 'darker' songs.

She comes with the garage kit in a lot of parts (and actually bigger than I expected!), an instruction sheet on paper and CD, decal stickers and some leftover mess of what was supposed to be a leather strap.

I guess one of the hot Japanese summers was too much for this poor thing. An exact release date is not known, but this kit is probably close to 15 years old, which means this condition is not surprising at all. I was planning on replacing it with some fake leather I have stored around here from cosplay projects. I hope it will look just as nice~

This instruction booklet is probably the most extensive I ever got with a Garage Kit! I think it's also the first one I have with color print.

Right now I have put this Garage Kit in storage. I hope I can practice my GK skills some more on other kits before I give this one a try. Right now I am making the finishing touches on ITEM #119873 , who I hope to finish soon.

That brings us to the end of this loot!

Maakie (Il y a 1 mois) #53310095Yeah, there are quite a lot of them in this blog actually! The 2 Vamp! covers, the 2 Baccano! covers and the 2 Naruto covers. :)
I have only seen this doujin for sale once and that's when I picked it up. It seems a bit rare, just like most Baccano! doujin. Keep an eye out on Suruga-Ya and Yahoo! auctions, I wish you good luck in getting it! :)

I’ll keep that in mind! Thank you~ <3

victorviper (Il y a 1 mois) #53249322Mana Khemia is kind of the forgotten entry these days in the Atelier Series. Mana Khemia and its sequel got released in the last days of the PS2, and they were sandwiched in between the popular Atelier Iris trilogy and the Arland games.
I really liked both games, as the combat is lively and the alchemy school setting is kind of a change of pace for the series. Mana Khemia 2 also features the option of playing as two different protagonists with slightly different character-specific scenes.
If you go the PSP route, just be advised that the reviews for Mana Khemia on the PSP skewed negative because apparently the load times are kind of horrific. I played it on the PS2, so I can't say if this was just gamers overreacting as they are known to do, or if the load times really hamper the game experience.


Yeah, I have multiple friends quite heavily into the Atelier series, including the older installments, but none of them ever told me about Mana Khemia! I guess it was a forgotten (spin-off?) game while people were focussing on the main series? I'll ask a few of them soon if they even know the game, haha!

Going to an alchemy school and having completely different combat, while it matches in the same universe indeed sounds like a nice idea~

Your reply made me look into the PSP version and yikes, not only slow loading times (a common thing for many PSP games unfortunately), but apparently also a lot of framerate problems. Slow loading times I can live with (mostly), but if there are framerate issues when you have action scenes going on, it's a no. Unfortunately I don't have a working PS2 right now. :/ Welp, I guess the game will get on a list to 'maybe buy someday' then!

Maakie (Il y a 1 mois) #53205814I have not heard of Mana Khemia before, but I see that the game also got an PSP release, so I'm going to look out for that one. :) Thanks for the tip!

victorviper (Il y a 1 mois) #53200472I am not that well known with the older installments myself as I personally only started playing this franchise from the PS3-era, but the character designs are always very good.
My first introduction to the Atelier games was Atelier Iris and Mana Khemia on the PS2. The former game is now kind of dated, but the Mana Khemia games have aged surprisingly well; if you ever feel like doing some old-school gaming and taking a deep dive into the series' past, those games might be a good ones at which to look.
Also, the SW shirt ITEM #770959 is a great find. It's always nice to see Michiko get some merchandise love :).

Yeah, I'm really happy about the artwork on that shirt and getting the shirt in general! I have already been planning to make itabags for a while and wonder if I can maybe pull together one with Michiko and Yoshika together. Yoshika should be no problem, but it would be nice to have a few Michiko items on there too, haha! And then I would wear that t-shirt together with the bag. :)
