Okay I have a large addition to the collection through no will of my own (but oh boy will I take it!). Now that I am in Japan my friend I mentioned in a previous post gave me the rest of the things she had bought me and wow it’s a gold mine. Take a look.
These are the different books she got me, there’s one other item but I’ll save that until last (^-^)
Here’s a quick look at the middle one, it’s all original line drawings I think.
This is from the Air “Visual Comic Anthology” which is at the bottom left in the first picture. I really like the design of this whole book.
This one’s from the top right one, I think it’s an Air/Kanon fan comic compilation.
Here’s a Key version of a Japanese word game, Karuta.
I haven’t opened those two manga yet but I’m going to give everything a thorough read-through when I get the chance. Oh and here’s my favourite of all:
Air Posters! I think they’re from promotional art for the visual novel and the printing quality seems really high. There are a lot of them but I’ll only post a few here so this post doesn’t get too long. The above one is my absolute favourite as I distinctly recall seeing it in google images before (I think) I had even watched Air. I could never find it after that for whatever reason but I’ve always thought it was one of the most well-designed Air art pieces I’d ever seen.
There are other character-specific ones but of course, the Misuzu ones are my favourites (^-^*). I was so stoked to receive all of this, I went and bought my friend a bunch of stuff from the Moomin shop as a thank you.
