I haven’t posted here in a while, and I guess I should update with the stuff I got from some recent events. First up is the Key Summer Sale:
A lot of these are free stuff like bromides and clear sheets. I did buy that Komari mousepad myself. The Kud phonestrap came from a random pick section of the sale (I wanted Kotori but got wafuu instead). The Kano keychain wasn’t from the summer sale, but actually from a branch of Animate in Shibuya, of all places! Despite Akiba not having any AIR goods, Shibuya apparently had some >_<
Next is stuff from Keypoints. I didn’t get much; an album from Rin Mogami, a manga from masirogogo, and a set that included a bunch of books from an artist who I can’t remember, but seems they were the ones who made the cover of the catalog, so that was cool.
Ahhhhh my biggest weakness: CDs. I’ve been looking for Key + Lia Best for a looong time now, and they eventually stocked it on one of the days of the Key Summer Sale. No regrets getting it, as it is an amazing album.
I also picked up Rockstar Busters and the Rewrite OST earlier, although both of them secondhand. Rockstar Busters is a great album, and I absolutely adore MintJam and all of their arrangements in general.
I’d been putting off getting the Rewrite OST for such a long time despite it being my favorite Key OST simply because it is sooo expensive; a brand new copy costs 4000 yen. But I found a secondhand copy at half the price, and decided to go for it. Japanese people take really great care of their things, and buying it secondhand is practically already like buying it new.
The packaging of both Key + Lia Best and the Rewrite OST are just sooooo good too. Comes with a CD box, a digipak containing the CDs, and a separate booklet with liner notes and lyrics (Lia Best having some amazing illustrations from GotoP, as well). Now that I know Key Sounds Labels packages their important CDs this way, well… I guess I’m gonna end up buying more CDs now ^^; Up next on my to-hunt-down list: Circle of Fifth and Little Busters Perfect Vocal Collection!
