Long overdue Tales of Zestiria / Berseria loot!

karayakarayaHace 10 mesesLoot
It has been SO LONG since i did a loot blog, so i though that was perfect timing that Berseria came out this week, got me in the mood to get MORE STUFF!

First of all i'd like to say this will obviously be picture heavy since it's mostly books/audio video stuff, so if you're thinking of figures: better turn away now~

Box was really big!

For what was in there actually:
http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g83/Karaya-san/DSCN1415_zpsvwgyksqr.jpg

By now you should know me, i like books, pens, clear files etc etc. It must be why i love the design on the Celestial Record in Tales of Zestiria; it's a darn book! I've come across 2 items while browsing YAJ that piqued my attention, wasnt exactly sure of how good/bad the zippered case was, and as for the memo pad, it was only 800yen, bid deal~

So that's for the zippered case, which was available on Lalabit Market for a bit, i must have missed that one.

And that's the inside, which looks a bit cheap to me, but hey i can put my pens, eraser, lead and drawing references in it when im on the go, and since it's zippered, it wont fall lose at the bottom of my bag, so it's pretty neat.

Memo pad:

Not sure where that one was sold at, but it's nice, it's a little box with a block of paper and a pen, i still think it's cute, a well invested 800yen....and i'll probably never use it :x

Here's some stuff i kinda wanted from the ichiban kuji that happened last year, never enough memo pads!

And finally i broke down and got that frame, now i have to decide where to put it ~

http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g83/Karaya-san/DSCN1442_zpslsfcblts.jpg

This i had no idea what it was, description said pocket metal mirror, was 900yen, i liked the illustration so i decided to bite! And didnt regret it!
http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g83/Karaya-san/DSCN1433_zpspfmupzxq.jpg

It really is a mirror on the other side, comes in a plastic sleeve and is about the size of a business card/credit card, it's so freakin cute :)

At the end of December a lot of items i wanted came out, and it was obviously the time for Comic Market 91. I grabbed 2 books and a calendar:
http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g83/Karaya-san/DSCN1434_zpsfjkga0nb.jpg

The calendar is interesting, has a different image each day and some are in motion sequences.

I nabbed Zestiria commemorative book at the same time on YAJ, as well as Xillia's that came in a day earlier from Mandarake:

Not all the illustrations are eye popping pretty, but here's some of the few i enjoyed:

Last but not least: The limited edition Blu-Ray box!
http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g83/Karaya-san/DSCN1446_zpsmdc8vcge.jpg

Mine came with an autographed poster and a 3 way clear file (OMG ONE MORE YEEEEES!) Dont ask me who signed it, i wish i knew, if you have any idea leave a note!

Box content:

They really paid attention to a bunch of little details, cant really see it that clear but the Zestiria logo is embedded on the envelope that contains those illustration cards :)

Special case that has a 38 songs OST from the anime and an event disk:

The box of the DVD itself is amazing looking and the exact same as the clear file bonus (I think Amazon still has that bonus, not sure).

•••••••••••••••♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦••••••••••••••

For those who dont know, yes the blu-ray works in NA, and the menus are pretty user friendly as well.

THERE IS NO ENGLISH SUBTITLES

•••••••••••••••♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦••••••••••••••

I honestly didnt even expect the menus to be in english, i was shocked! Here's an example taken from my PS4:
http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g83/Karaya-san/DSCN1476_zps0991a0it.jpg

That boxset was a lot of money but i dont regret it one bit, worth every yen even if my wallet says otherwise :'D

You would think i have enough books by now:

Nope.
A Viva Tales / Ufotable illustration book has been announced for Feb. 28th tokrin.com/arch... It will be amazing and you can actually pre-order it on Amazon Japan, way less problematic than having to go through a proxy service, faster and cheaper too !
www.amazon.co.j...

This amazing loot was not the only loot delivered to my door this week:

Just in time for my vacation, i'm one happy Tales fangirl ♥
Hope you enjoyed this as much as i did, sorry if i make you spend on books.... NOT.

karaya (Hace 10 meses) #18144798You're welcome !
I found that one of the best place to buy used artbooks was Suruga-ya. It's ridiculous the amount of them i found "used" for under a thousand yen. I was scared that they might be in bad condition but most of them looked brand new, minus a few scratches on the jackets.


oh.. suruga-ya, is it www.suruga-ya.j... ?
i would really prefer to go to jp and hunt them in person, like last time i went to jp i spent literally one full day just to browse lotsa bookshops in akihabara
lately i found amazon jp and kino online to have some selections, althou the price is really off the roof =/

suruga-ya looks nice, hey thanks heaps for this =) ill definitely check them out

karaya (Hace 10 meses) #18036499My bad, i didnt link anything at all when i made the post. Since there's more than one book on each serie im not sure which you're reffering to, but i just linked them all up for you, the ones that were in the database at least. I have well over 40 and some we're special events/bundled with something else.
If you need something more specific, let me know~

karaya (Hace 10 meses) #17806501I have Sorey's necklace too, i wear it almost everyday when i dont wear Jude's necklace. I still want to buy Ludger's necklace one day but im not a jewelry person and i find them so darn tiny. Mikleo is one of my favorite characters but i really didnt like what they did with the necklace, oh well, cant always like everyting they come up with from your favorite characters~
I use FromJapan, i did have good and bad experience with them but mostly good. When i get bad experience its usually because im a retard sometimes and i dont check the shipping fees from the seller and obviously those get charged to the proxy who charges them back to you. Also i go shop crazy sometimes and after a month of pilling little knick knacks left and right i realize ooooh crap.... shipping is going to be a pain. EEK!
So yea, when prices were insane: my own fault, they were not to blame. They never lost any of my items or broke anything. As a matter of fact that last shipment i decided to down value all my junk or else im sure my duty fee would have been around 150-200$ (i did score 172$ duty fees on a 700$ order once... damnit). I never received anything damaged so i took a chance and it was actually for the best, duty fees was 62$ only... yay~
Dont hesitate to ask if you have more questions about pretty much anything :3

(aaaa late reply sorry)
Ehehe same! I've been wearing it pretty much daily since I bought it. The Mikleo one I haven't because it needs to be cleaned.. the person I bought it from never opened it. They are pretty small! I kinda like delicate necklaces like that, but it would be cool if they made some larger ones. And yeah, true! There's even some official art I don't like hah. I do like a lot of the jewelry items though even if I haven't played the respective games.

Oh okay, cool. I have been using them for auctions and such, and White Rabbit Express for ordering things (they have pretty amazing customer service, and free consolidation). And oh gosh yeah those charges can really pile up.. OTL

Gack! That would have been a monstrous fee.. that sort of thing is one of the few things that makes me glad I live in the US, hah.

Will do, thank you!! >w<b

WindsorSeven (Hace 10 meses) #17820806Amazing loot! As a tales and illustration fan, this is great to see. I love the staff illustration books. It's fun to see who everyone on the team liked (there's a lot of Elise in the Xillia one (♡ε♡ )) and how good they all are at drawing! Seriously, wtf. There's what, one bad pic?
Also aaahhh all that Fujishima. I wish he could just illustrate everything ever.


I was kinda freaked out about the staff books, i mean i like seeing how other people illustrates characters but i got the Xillia book first from Mandarake while the other 2 were still en route from YAJ. There was only a little amount of the illustrations in the Xillia book i liked and i was starting to regret having ordered the other two, but just the "getting bullied by pigs" pic with Sorey and Mikleo in the Zestiria book along with Velvet looking all cute hugging that stuffed pillow in the Berseria book were enough to go aww ok, im glad i got them !

I cant wait for the Viva / Ufotable illustration book, a month is soooo far away! Im almost positive that 90% of those illustrations i most likely have them already on clear files and such, but hey all in one "bible" is even better for me ♥

Wonderful loot! Everything is so pretty <3
I love Tales a lot myself and I hope I'm able to snag some random things here and there when in Japan...
Can't wait to play Berseria too ^o^
