Manga, Artbook and Figures

Looks like my dvds shipment won’t be arriving this week, so I’ll just do a post on what I got this week. A trip to Kinokuniya (it’s so nice to have it so near my office that I can go there anytime ^^) net me a Fate/Stay Night Anime Spiritual artbook. They actually have the Fate/Stay Night Production Drawing artbook as well but decided to give that miss for the time being. Beside that I also got myself Claymore vol 2, and vol 4-6, ordered vol 1 and 3 so just have to wait for them to arrive. I really got hook on Claymore after watching the anime, a check at Wiki reveal that the anime only follow the plot from the manga up to episode 20 and the manga continues after the end of the anime as well.

Beside that I got myself 2 FMP figures Chidori and Tessa by Bome. Got this at a cheap price since they are second hand but the condition is still great and since Bome uses clampshell I don’t mind not having the original packaging.

A closer look at the cover, with Saber, Sakura, Rin, Ilya and Taiga. Something about DVD on the paper at the bottom. This books is basically a guide to the anime with screen cap from some scenes, character profiles, etc. Too bad I can’t read japanese though.

Sometimes I wonder why I still buy Japanese magazine and artbook when I can’t even read it haha, well I guess looking at the nice pictures is good enough XD. Figure shoots will resume soon, in the process of aquiring a new camera at the moment, so if all goes well the next figure shoots will be using my new camera XD.
