Not gonna post pics of the actual artwork inside, since it's pretty spoilery, and I haven't read Dies yet.

I massively (heh) fucked up on getting the right size of t-shirt, so this is gonna be one of my new pajama shirts.  Not like I was going to wear this in public anyway, though :makina:

Wow, you actually got your stuff? I've been following the fiasco online and it looks like a total shitstorm :/

Recently I really got into j-pop, so during last 3-4 months I've been buying lots of Japanese discs.

FictionJunction/Yuki Kajiura live DVDs, AKB48, Ai Kawashima, Anri Kumaki, Minako Kawae, Saeko Chiba, Aya Hisakawa, Yoko Ishida, JYONGRI... - love'em  :wub:  What I love most about these is how they freely mix old and new sounds, and still retain classic song structure and themes, that got almost wiped from mainstream US/EU pop.

And what got me pointed towards it were VNs (and SHOGO:MAD that I played 20 years ago, and it had amazing opening :D) .

I'm still buying tons of CDs - recently I completed Anri Kumaki's album collection. I'm surprised myself, but I love every single song from each of these 12 records. She's A M A Z I N G.

It's here! :D:D:D

I'm SO GLAD to finally have this. I'd been wanting to buy the physical copy for some months now, but it was kind of hard to justify seeing as I've already read the VN (on Steam), and the asking price was kind of high wherever I could find a copy. However, I started to reconsider, but by then the copies had already begun to run out everywhere I could find them, and I just barely managed to miss the chance to get one when they were being advertised a few weeks ago. I managed to find a copy, though, and jumped on it as quickly as I could, and now it's finally here! :D

I'd been planning on rereading the common route (as well as the Rise route) before jumping in to W Happiness as an end-of-year treat so this just makes me want to do so even more. The really nice part, too, is that it's not just the VN - there's the artbook and soundtrack as well (two aspects of the VN I really enjoyed): I get the strong feeling that even if Mangagamer do reissue hard copies of PE (like for Kara no Shoujo and ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two), they won't include the artbook and soundtrack. Princess Evangile is my third favorite VN, and one I have a lot of happy memories reading, and I'm really really glad to have it physically. It makes for a great start to my burgeoning VN collection. The next step is to acquire what will most likely be the pride of my collection

Acquired some more Japanese books!

Titles, some explanations & better pictures:

Spoiler

From the top-left:

  • 「お前ごときが魔王に勝てると思うな」と勇者パーティを追放されたので、王都で気ままに暮らしたい 1 (omaegotoki)
    Ignoring the tacky title, I've only heard singing praises how good fantasy series this is. Also yuri. 
     
  • Fate/Labyrinth
    Written by Sakurai Hikaru. <3
     
  • 図書館ドラゴンは火を吹かない
    Dragon guarding a library reminiscences about her past travels with a young magician. Seems very wholesome and apparently has very elegant writing.
     
  • めぐり逢ふまで 蔵前片想い小町日記
    A period piece/rom-com set in Edo-period. Pure curiosity pick.
     
  • 屍鬼 (Shiki) 1-5.
    The legendary horror novel by Fuyumi Ono. It's so hefty it had to be split in to 5 books and is over 2500 pages in total. The anime adaptation is pretty good.
     
  • 裏世界ピクニック (Otherside Picnic) 1-2
    Yuri SF inspired by Strugatskys' Roadside Picnic. I almost feel like this series is personally made for me...
     
  • 世界の果てのランダム・ウォーカー & 世界を愛するランダム・ウォーカー (Random Walker) 
    Mystery/Fantasy/SF/Horror travelogues about a pair of investigators exploring the vast and unknown world and the people they meet. Definitely one my aesthetics.   
     
  • ミウ -skeleton in the closet-
    Interesting looking mystery that caught my eye a while ago.
