I guess to celebrate the beatmania IIDX GOLD they made the BG into golden tint, though I prefer the BG colour in shitajiki one.
As you can see from the image, the shitajiki is the normal size, next to it the poster, in which you can get the idea on how massive it is XD
Then there was also my amazon jp shopping. I wasn't planning to order yet, but then I saw the Tactics Ogre artbook is running low on stock. I have been eyeing on this book for a while but wait to grab it along with other stuff as usual with amazon ordering. I like the drawing style and most important I want to use it as reference for armours design and all. So I took this chance to complete my Kozue Amano artbooks. I bought 'Stella' and 'Birth' separately, now is time to grab Alpha' and 'Cielo' too. I really want to get the complete volume of all Kaoru Mori's manga (EMMA and Otoyome) but getting them from amazon are too much seeing the manga cost around 600 yen and handling fee per book is 300 yen DX;
Hopefully next time I can grab the second hands of them at once ;3;
