#Kalafina ~ Arena Live 2016 BD - unboxing
It's really been a while since I last blogged. Been very busy and there were some issues in the office that I had to deal with which were a little emotionally draining. Office politics really suck. :( But it's cool. I stood my ground and it's mostly resolved for now. And to make things even better, Kalafina's latest BD release arrived at my doorstep today. :)
I know there are three copies in that photo above. I could pretend that I am a crazy rabid fan but, hahahahaha, I'm not that crazy. :P The other copies belong to two other friends. We shared shipping on this so it'll save us some money. :)
I'm not going to do an extensive unboxing today. I'm really quite tired and have quite a lot of sleep debt that's really catching up on me now. *sweat So, I really need to try and sleep before midnight... so here goes....
All the photos:
As usual, I shot photos of the BD with the shrink wrap on and off. This time I also took the cover sheet out of the pocket to shoot the front and back because they did print an image on the back this time. They don't always do this. Quite often the back is just left blank.
It's a relatively simple release but they did include a small insert booklet which makes this more than a simple bare bones release. If I counted it correctly, it should be 24 pages including the cover and the back.
It's quite a nice booklet because there are quite a lot of images. In fact, there is a photo of them at the lives on all pages including lyric pages and credit pages. And they included two two-page spreads where there are no lyrics. That's quite nice, in my opinion, because often in a very basic release, the lyric pages have no photos at all.
This comes with a poster tokuten which I don't intend to take out of the tube to shoot a photo of. I kinda want to keep it in a pristine condition in the poster tube. :P
Sadly..... I can't watch this BD in all it's glory. The tv in my room is dying and the screen is really washed out and streaky now. :( I also don't have a BD drive in any of my comps. :( I'm considering if I should attempt watching it on my dying tv or try and go to a friend's house to do it. I haven't decided yet.... but it won't be tonight. I need to sleep soon. :P
Okay... that's it. I am really looking forward to watching this release. I had to miss the live in the Budokan, life got in the way. :( But luckily, they did decide to release this BD so it really does make up some for a pretty bumpy 2016.
Finally!!! Please do support all who worked on this release by buying this release. I have included the link to the CDJapan product page.
