Weekly shonen magazine 2020-34 – FGO Summer Poster

B4-sized pin-up poster from the magazine. I cut off the binding area and took the poster off.

I initially hoped for this to be included in the digital version but annoyingly there’s no such luck. RIP 300yen.

Apparently they’ll be selling fancier poster version of this. Will need to wait until next number for the full information.

Okita part is a bit too small 😞

Yomeyaba DMM mini shikishi (+misc talk)

So I lied. Here’s more Hulotte-related post.

There’s also another lie that I ended up buying Invisible because Kohaku is just too damn cute and lewd and I finished the title in record time although the ending is a bit unsatisfactory because they hand-waved too many things and ended up rather confusing. The “harem” route is literally just fanservice with conflicting story unlike Yomeyaba’s extra infodump in the harem route. It’s also missing proper sub-heroines routes and ended up just part of the harem “route”. Oh well. At least Kohaku was cute.

Anyway, here’s the shikishi for Yomeyaba (which is now almost 5 years old) which is a DMM store bonus. It’s actual signature which is unusual as it’s commonly just printed.

It’s smaller sized which isn’t mentioned anywhere in the official site. I was expecting normal sized shikishi and missed the mention in Suruga-ya listing page where I bought this from for almost 3k. It’s probably my most expensive shikishi.

But hey, it’s Kirino. My second/third favorite heroine in the game (about the same as Mihono) and of course below Nanaka.

Talking about Kirino, I just learned today that the soshage Yomeyaba collaborated with during release day has been shutdown last April. And that’s why I don’t like soshage. I did a bit more digging on this collab and apparently people were upset their heroine had sex with another guy. Understandable though I didn’t think too much at the time. I also didn’t play the game and only did enough to rip the CGs. Looking back I should’ve tried saving the sound as well and perhaps even record some videos.

Comic Bavel 5th anniversary event

There are B2/B0 tapestries, rounded cushion, and shikishi from Melonbooks. Meanwhile on Tora no ana there’ll be… mousepad? Here’s link to main site’s page itself but the url seems a bit too generic. Not that Melonbooks one will last either.

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).

Kakenuke seishun sparking postcard/photo

It’s a thing. And it’s relatively cheap. Of course I’m getting the two heroines I like most.

Maybe will send the postcards to some people just because. Write comments or mail me if interested maybe?

There’s also this. Was curious because the listed price was quite a lot cheaper compared to Moeoh prints at 30 yen as opposed to Moeoh’s 200 yen.

The print quality itself is actually rather questionable. I should try printing at other konbini if they make another series.

A.M.R C98 Taruto acrylic clock

I think it arrived relatively early for a Booth purchase.

It’s a desk clock. With acrylic plate. With illustration of Taruto (in Wonderland). Fancy stuff.

I don’t have any good place to put this. This kind of motivates me to clean up my stuff even more. Maybe next month.

It’s made by Trinity. The acrylic plate is fine if not a bit thick. Seems rather easily damaged but I guess that’s the usual risk. The clock hands are a bit flimsy though I guess it’s just normal for this kind of thing. Runs on single AA battery which thankfully I still have some spares of. T

And then there will be more Taruto goodies next month.

Oh and this thing is still available for order at Booth.

F/sn Saber Alter B3? poster

Uh, so this is kind of random but there’s new illustration of Saber Alter drawn by Takeuichi turned poster in the May release of Young Ace magazine. I just had to grab it.

Too bad it’s poster so it’s pretty annoying to handle. Maybe I should get some frames just so I can finally rotate some posters I have.

I’m not sure if the size is correct but the long side matches the short side of my B2 tapestry, hence my guess of B3 size.

Cafe Stella calendar

I forgot to post this. It arrived sometime last week.

It’s the usual calendar bonus from buying all the character songs. Due to timing etc, this one starts from April. Sometimes called “school calendar” as that’s when new academic year starts.

Unlike the previous ones, this one doesn’t have plastic case/stand. Probably due to a lot of them were broken during shipment for Riddle Joker. It’s also twice larger.

As before, it’s two-monthly calendar per page, six pages total. Four of them are newly drawn and the other two are generic all-characters images.

And now I have a bit too many calendars.

Kin-iro loveriche VFB store bonus

*VFB means visual fanbook

From what I gather at least Melonbooks, Tora no ana, and Getchu have plus-tapestry edition. Too bad the one by Tora no ana involves cigarette 😔 And the preview for Getchu tapestry is not available yet. They added one. It’s recycled from one of older BugBug cover which tapestry of its variation already existed.

Update 2020-03-06: Getchu added.

Shikishi – pieces/Canary early pre-order

I got this one from Sofmap. I do usually order early but not this early. I needed something to pre-order so I get some bonus points so I got this this week.

I still need to pre-order from Melonbooks for retail store orders. And maybe Tora no ana? Their online store is usually pretty late for pre-order stuff though. I’ll decide next or following month.

Sukumizu sure is nice. I’m not sure what the ribbon is doing there though ?_?

Hooded Blanket – A.M.R Lambda Lilith

Finally arrived after the pre-order last month. Also as mentioned, it’s a bit unfortunate only her upper half is visible. Also it’s a bit small for my usual use. It’s got hood though which might be useful? It is probably useful. Otherwise it’s usual blanket deal with fluffy material.

I recently learned the hard way that not all blankets are created equal ,_,

Doujin – QP:flapper C97

Found it for cheap (with coupon) in PayPay Flea Market so I figured why not. The book is just manga. I was half expecting some illustrations as well but it’s just manga. A bunch of short ones. Pretty standard stuff.

As for the calendar, it’s another small-ish desk calendar. It looks like I now have a desk calendar at home. The illustrations seem to be part original, part anime/game (FGO)? It labels each holidays with the holiday name which is nice as I don’t usually see it in such calendars.

I sure wish they sell their books in stores…

Doujinshi – Kotatsu Room C97

And here’s something new for a change. I’ve been following their yuri manga series on twitter/pixiv and found their sukumizu series is pretty enticing as well so here I go.

Bought the set for that additional lewd version of the main book (nipples etc) which is annoying but I guess it’s just the usual selling tactic. Pretty good overall, especially good the Senpai x Kouhai book which is the main reason I bought it. Only minor lewd but it’s FGO! It’s yuri! It’s Mash x Master! Yay.

And lastly two older books which they sell for slightly cheaper than usual. Those are pretty nice as well. Lots of yuri illustrations as well.

Oh and the included paper bag was given away to someone else who probably has more use for it than me as I’ll just have it collect dust until I get annoyed enough and dump them in the end just like every other paper bags.

The acrylic stand is small fun and the paper box should be useful for organizing stuff.

Denkigai 2019 Winter Goods

Pre-order here.

Apparently they’ve got new people managing this so it’s not in the usual place anymore. Also it’s not triple suede anymore but instead printed by A&J. I still prefer double suede so this is all good.

Unfortunately there’s no commentary in the store page anymore. I wonder if it’s in the booklet which I’ve never bought 🤔

Oh, as usual, it’s tapestries, T-shirts, and one different type of goods. This time it’s bath towel. Lyctron bath towel. It costs 11k. I don’t even. Kind of curious but not sure if I want to pay that much just to figure it out. I wonder if they put out a sample during the event and I completely missed it. I don’t think so, though?

Misc Goods – Cafe Stella

Here’s the misc stuff from either pre-order bonus (draft book, tin badges), Sofmap bonus (more tin badges, shitajiki, shopping bag, stickers, bookmarks), Trader (keychain of some sort), and Amiami (covered keyholder thingy?).

The sticker is nice, as I can use it for stuff like portable drives. I can also probably use the acrylic keyholder The rest of them? I’m not sure. Maybe collect dust or something.

Shikishi – Cafe Stella

And then the shikishis. One of them already made appearance here when I pre-ordered it from Sofmap few weeks ago. While three of them are pretty easy to obtain, the bottom left one (Mei) is only available from their official store. That’s pretty annoying.

Looks pretty analog drawing just like every other bonus shikishis from Yuzusoft.

I wonder if they’ll ever make R-18 shikishi…

Goods – C97 catalog + Melonbooks swags

Usual C97 catalog stuff though I think there are more stuff compared to last one. Especially I don’t remember if there’s paper bag before. I didn’t get the additional books because the lineup didn’t seem interesting enough and doesn’t warrant the 1500yen (x2) price for me.

The included bonus is fine. There are some nice surprise with Tateha and Takano Yuki illustrations as well.

I’ll probably start making my list sometime next weekend.

Moeoh C97

More information on Moeoh C97 goods. Including Kodomo no moeoh vol. 07 with cover as above. My favorite Chikotam character is making a return. I don’t remember if there are more tapestries recently but I don’t think so? I sure hope there’s one for this.

There are also a bunch of X-Rated B2 tapestries. All of them are pretty big though so maybe a pass. It doesn’t help the quality of the tapestries themselves have been quite low recently.

A.M.R 2019 Winter Goods

Pre-order has started, will be up for a bit over a week until 11th.

Okita tapestry! And in B1 even. This will be my first B1 tapestry of both Okita and anything drawn by Ikegami Akane. Thankfully it’s on completely SFW side. Either completely lewd or completely SFW are my preferences. Anything in between usually get lower priority to be hanged up and thus is more likely to be pushed out by other tapestries. Or maybe not if it’s by her.

But it’s Okita. So, yay.

As for the hood blanket, it’s rather unfortunate only her top half is visible. Seems like a missed opportunity.

Go buy themmmmmmm. Or something. I ordered mine already.
