Nice loot Shawurai! That Syangri-la set looks very nice, love that artwork.

See you got "Candy Boy" CD's, did you get the plain audio CD only versions or the ones that come with the extra DVD featuring episode 00 and EX01?

I bought the winter uniform CD in the regular version. For the summer uniform CD I bought both the regular version and the one with CD+DVD.

So, yes, I do have the episode 00 and EX01. Only problem I have right now is that 1st DVD has been sold out at CDJapan so I have to look elsewhere for it :(

No problem, they have it in stock at Amazon Japan: http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B001IECYKG

Most pages are available in English, so pretty easy to order there. If you haven't ordered there, don't hesitate to IM or mail me, I'll probably order a few manga so we can pool to cut on Fedex/customs costs. ^^

Really nice presentation post Merun :)
Mine has yet to arrive. I hope is doesn't get stopped at customs.



1 of 2 packages (the 2nd package contains the same Tickle figurine set that Merun bought) that I'm expecting this month. This one came from Amazon Japan with 2 manga, 2 artbooks, 2 magazines and 3 DVDs:

D.C. II ~Imaginary Future~ vol.5 Last volume.
Game Club! - vol.1
Excellent Punitto - Itsuki Akata Illustrations ~ Moeoh Selection The previous Moeoh Selection artbooks were better than this one imo
Debono Sudachi - Yamamoto Kazue Artbook Do NOT buy this unless you are a big fan of her work. There are no CG Images in this one. Just sketches and almost nothing from her work done while she was still with studio e-go!)
Megami Magazine Creators vol.17 (2009 November)
Dengeki Moeoh (2009 October) The extra Otona no Moeoh booklet that came with this magazine has a short manga story in it. This story from Yoshioka Takahiko features 2 loli characters eating 1 ice lolly together. The manga doesn't show that much (there is just 1 moment where you see a glimpse of a nipple) BUT it is the most exciting (read 'erotic') stuff I've read in a while. If when reading this your heart rate doesn't go up by several beats you simple aren't normal !!!
Candy Boy - vol.1 An extra audio CD is also included.
Candy Boy - vol.2 - Lovely Version An extra audio CD is also included.
OVA To Heart 2 adplus - vol.2 (Excellent Limited Edition) This version comes with a Manaka dakimakura cover. Ones again a good quality cover for an additional good (several times better as what comes as an extra with some magazines). You do actually pay for this better quality as the regular edition DVD sells at 5800 ¥ while this edition sells at 9500 ¥ (a magazine sells at 933 ¥ but with an extra dakimakura is sells at about 2000 ¥). This brings my dakimakura cover collection to 14 ^^ (10 that I bought, 2 that came as extra with a DVD and 2 that came as an extra with a magazine).

3 doujinshi
H2O - Footprints In The Sand ~ Hayami Kohinata (1/8 scale - PVC & ABS)

About the bed sheets:
I now have a better view of the quality that the following stores (softmap, medio and messe-sanoh) offer when releasing a bed sheet as an added benefit good when preordering a game at their store). I'll get right to the point and say it: STAY AWAY FROM SOFTMAP.

I now have 2 bed sheets from softmap, 1 from medio and 1 from messe-sanoh that are original preorder benefit goods. Now this probably doesn't look like enough bed sheets to say that 1 store is better than another. Do know I also browsed many Yahoo Auctions Japan pages checking on prices and availability of different sheets from each store. I was noticed that a large number of people sell these bed sheets and that a lot of those come from softmap and messe-sanoh. Medio released fewer bed sheets in the past so availability of their bed sheets is low and you'll have to look at many pages to find anything from them. From the number of bed sheets I was able to look at on the auction pages I quickly noticed that messe-sanoh sheets have a tendency to be priced 2000-3000 ¥ (and more) higher than Softmap sheets. This price difference probably reflects the difference in quality and not only the availability as you'll find just as many bed sheets from softmap as you'll find from messe-sanoh.

I too was able to notice this first-hand with the bed sheets that I have. The 2 from softmap have a low quality material and stitching on the sides is poorly done. The material is very compact and thin. It is stiff and not soft at all. Not something comfortable to sleep under. Medio and messe-sanoh are many times better with a really good quality material used. The stitching on the sides is done much better and it looks a lot more resistant to time and use. The material is much smoother and very comfortable to sleep under (trust me ^^)

So I would advice you all to stay way from softmap benefit bed sheets as much as possible and consider getting one from messe-sanoh or medio if possible. If you do get a softmap be very cautious about it as you'll probably get disappointed with what you paid for.



About the dakimakura cover:
Averagely happy with this one. Priced at 10000 ¥ it has only medium quality material (almost medium-low but still a lot better than the crappy stuff you get from a magazine). Size is 150x50 cm but no zipper. The only thing that saves this dakimakura cover is the fact that it is a double print release with illustrations (with 1 ecchi side) from Yamamoto Kazue (but honestly it is really worth around 8000-9000 ¥ if you ask me).
