When I received the G’s Festival! Deluxe Vol. 7, I had also gotten G’s Festival! Vol. 17 in the same shipment. Thanks to final exams, I had little time to do anything else.
But now that the exams are over, I’m able to post up these photos!
The art is good. I think it might be one of those that are commissioned for these one-off goods, since I’ve never seen this picture of Yuri before.
Hit past the break to see a lot more photos!
First up is a tapestry of Kanade. The art is one that’s been shown around the Angel Beats! homepage ever since the series was announced. In other words, nothing special with the art.
The material is polyester/nylon. The tapestry unfolds lengthwise. The material is okay, but not the best.
Second up is a key holder of GirlDeMo. This actually reminds me of a Rewrite key holder I got with G’s Festival! Deluxe Vol. 5 back in January. Both of these are (apparently) only obtainable from buying these special editions.
I haven’t opened it yet (much like the Rewrite one) and I probably won’t open it. But its solid, feels heavy and is made well.
Last but not least. This is the focal item of this special edition magazine! A dakimakura cover featuring Yuri.
The art is brand new I believe, commissioned for this purpose. It might find its way around to other products but so far, this is the only thing that features her fully unclothed with only an Intervention covering her “vital” parts!
The material is identical to the one used in G’s Festival! Deluxe Vol. 6 that featured Kanade. In other words, it’s a “school swimsuit” material – stretchable and easy on the skin.
I would’ve simply photographed this one draped on the chair, but that looked horrible since it couldn’t emphasize the fact that Yuri is naked! So here’s a new way of things for me:
Mhmmmmm delicious! Now I wish I bought two packs so I can perhaps, just perhaps use it one day~
Buyers in Japan would be eligible to enter a draw to win some super-rare Angel Beats! merchandise. These books are the scripts of a certain character from a certain episode, signed by their respective voice actors.
There’s also a chance to win various CDs signed by the artists.
The magazine is about 84 pages long. Now that the Angel Beats! series have ended, the magazine reveals the summary of all 13 episodes, throwing in some extra tidbits of facts occasionally. Nothing really new or earth-shattering here, but after reading through I felt I better understood Angel Beats.
The second half features many interviews with the voice actors. All four major VAs are covered, mainly talking about the challenges and enjoyments of being a voice actor to such a major series.
I’ll be posting yet another purchase that’s been lingering around for a while now in a few days!
