GNSK Fanbook - Vol. 4 Limited Edition Covers, and Bonus Mikorin
I saw scans of this cover floating around, but I guess this way you can see a textless version of the front cover, plus some of Tsubaki-sensei’s comments.
Ink it labs is AMAZING. GOSH. The charms look gorgeous /cries happy tears.
The edges are cleanly, uniformly cut and the printing is amazing - aside from some colour differences, but that’s all on me since I used raster images rather than vector images, which they have spot colour palettes for. It’s not much though, from what I can see.
I deliberately made it such that the pawprints on the Yama charm and the fireflies’ glow on the Kei charm were printed without white ink at the back - this makes them translucent. It’s more obvious when you set them against a black background:
I think the effect turned out pretty well. It’s just that due to the colour difference, the fireflies’ glow ended up looking somewhat greenish-yellow, which I think is pretty fitting, so I’m not that beat-up about it.
The back images are more vibrant - understandable, since the back images are printed directly on the acrylic:
Here are the charms set against the ink jet print of the designs:
I am just really REALLY IMPRESSED BY THE QUALITY. THEY JUST TURNED OUT REALLY GREAT OKAY — I FEEL SO PROUD —-
But yeah. Just to update you guys:
I’m in the midst of setting up a storenvy to sell these charms (USD$10 each excluding shipping, most likely). However, I have never done this before so I still have to ask around and do more research - if any of you have had any experience with storenvy and international shipping, please share with me! I’ll probably be conducting a trial run with one of the Tsukki charms and selling it without charging the shipping price - just so that I can confirm my shipping rates. It’s most likely going to be about USD$4/5 for international shipping though, from what I’ve seen on the market.
Once my store is set up, I’ll make a post on this blog again, so stay tuned! = v =
A little downtime for Shun Maiyama and Kakeru Kazami of Shonen Hollywood (少年ハリウッド) in this Animedia Magazine (09/2014) spread by storyboard artist Shinobu Tagashira (田頭しのぶ).
Haikyuu!! ED2 single “LEO” first press anime ver. slipcover.
EDIT: Replaced the first image with a better version from Sony Music’s website.
Thought I’d save other Clear fans the trouble of watching this terrible anime. Just listen to this (and look up the Kanako Ito ED) and spare yourselves.
Unfortunately we’ll have to wait for the OST for a proper version of the song so enjoy some suffering Alphas in the background.
“He’s going now.”
“If he wants the BJ I promised he is.”
Clear was about as excited as I was to be getting his route done.
