I kind of like that effect on SE part 1, totally makes Mayuri's post-surgery-ish chest a lot more unconsipicious. Artcards don't seem to seem to have that as strong though. (?)
And damn that book and artcards, wish the original series would have gotten that treatment. (Though it probably wouldn't have been even close to being as nice as the French one anyway, huh.)
But seeing 23beta out there is great. (After both France and Germany botching their chance for a complete set when they were so late at releasing it.) Though seeing it bundled with 0 is kind of sad. While making sense content-wise it doesn't directing-wise, it only makes 0 itself look rather terrible in comparison.
