No.6 - Toi8 Design & Art Works

HappyLawHappyLawHace 5 mesesReview
Finally I have this precious book in my hands! *_*
View spoilerHide spoilerFor a full enjoyment of this blog ;) read while listening to the marvelous ED of the anime:
Aimer - Rokutosei no Yoru www.youtube.com...


I was for a long time undecided and struggling with myself whether or not buying this book, long out of print and with an astronomic price compared to the initial price of 1714 yen, so it became my Holy Grail!
I've loved the illustrations of Toi8 since the first time I saw them online, but the book at the time was already OOP, and instead I've adapted to buy this log book ITEM #86268 (but it's an A5 size and has only 5 toi8 illustrations T_T).
then a month ago, going, as I often do, on the page of the book here on MFC, I've noticed that someone had recently bought it, so I kindly asked YLLIASVIEL (thank you a lot my friend!), where did she get it.
the answer is Mandarake. So I've found a copy without OBI for 4000 yen...
I know I know, it's still high, but cheaper than other copies on yahoo auctions or ebay, and I finally gave in!

By the way, it was my first purchase on mandarake and all went smooth ^_^
1080 yen for RegSAL and a loooong 35 days shipping time
and luckily no Customs Import Fee, that I was sure it would have been around 2400 yen-18 euro. so yay for me! ^_^

took pics of all the illustrations. If you like no.6 and toi8, you've already seen them all, but I think that it's always a pleasure to look at, and maybe it's been a long time since you've viewed them, so here's a refresh! enjoy!

there are still copies available on Mandarake, 4000 yen without OBI, 4500 yen with OBI. Mine was graded B, but as you can see in the pics it's in mint condition. if I were you I'll buy it there if interested.

I just wanted to share my joy with you, MFC fellows!

HappyLaw (Hace 2 meses) #27066804you're welcome!
the OBI is simply a strip of paper with informations about the content of the book, it's over the dustcover at the bottom of the book.
for example:
School Girls artbook with OBI
School Girls artbook without OBI
for the No.6 artbook you can see the OBI in the picture in the page of mandarake No.6 artbook with OBI it's the light blue strip at the bottom
instead there isn't in the one without OBI(like mine).
hope this explain well enough ;)
oh i see, thanks so much for explaining!!!! I thought it might have been a poster or something lol.
