Finally remembered to upload some photos so I can contribute! This ended up being maybe my favorite home video release of last year, which is crazy seeing as how Kara no Kyoukai was released, amongst others. It's the BD release of Carnival Phantasm, which came with some lovely goodies, and even an art box just the right size to hold all the extras as well as the main discs:



Front covers of the discs with the books that came with them underneath:



Unfolded wrap-around cover art from v.1+2:



And from v.3+Melty Blood:



And two sample pics from each of the Catalog, the Guide Book, and the Prototype Material:







Bigger pics of the ones I didn't link to are on my Flickr, but I didn't add titles or descriptions yet.

Gorgeous. Ahh, Gil...

I definitely can't budget for it at the moment but it's on my list of things to accidentally maybe impulse buy on holiday :s

I hope you have some luck and it isn't fetching fancy second hand prices. Amazon sold out of their own stock quite quickly and it was down to buying it from marketplace sellers for full RRP or more even before release (although it was listed as "software" on Amazon, which possibly has more of an effect than simply not being able to import it directly).

Part of the thrill is in the chase :3

I'll probably overpay for it in the excitement of holding it (especially coming fresh out of the end of Zero), but I'm expecting it to be reasonably easy to find given how well Type-Moon-related stuff seems to stick around in the marketplace. And I need to leave some things for my trip...

I guess TM stuff does seem to be easier to pick up these days, but for sure some of their items are/have been really hard to get hold of in the past. They are quite fond of not over-producing stuff. I agree you will be able to find it at "some" price, though.

I had my "Twelve Kingdoms"-BDs in mail:

^ Indeed, on the spine of the US games, "Revelations" is mispelled as "Revelaitons".

Also, I got my The World God Only Knows and Fairy Tail 3 today. I was disappointed to see that TWGOK had a bit of a rip on the spine (the pictures make it more noticeable than it normally is). I have to say though, TWGOK has some fantastic disc art:














And typing this, I just found out that I did indeed cut myself trying to get Fairy Tail volume 3 out of PlanetAxel's tough packaging.

These arrived today - lucky me getting part 2 and Paradise Lost before part 1 and King of Eden! :lol:

Still waiting on Disappearance coming from DevotedDVD... Been a week now, how long does stuff usually take to arrive from Oz?

Mine had that too! It's a lot less noticeable than yours, so I was just planning on replacing the case someday when I have enough subpar cases to warrant buying some spares. I wonder if the whole box got knocked in transit or something?

That does make sense. That photo makes it look a lot worse than it is; I'll probably buy some cellotape tonight and just stick it down. Even now, with it lined up amongst my other blu-rays I can only see it when I get close.

I also find it funny how Kanon is featured on the second disc, but her entire conquest is contained in the first disc xD

What's Tokko like? The only thing I know about it is that I always see it in the shops and pick it up to look at it, and almost immediately put it back down again. But I can never remember why, and seem to repeat this process every time I go shopping for anime.

That is a matter to bring to the attention of your GP.

tokko 7/10

the old school look its the best part of the series. The history is not bad at all but the end was a bit rushed. The animation was bad but the goore, violence and blood gave it a little bit of salt so it could taste better :lol:
Is this what you mean with like? :p
