So I just go this in from Rightstuf today. Expensive, but my love of UC Gundam knows little bounds.
Anyone interested in pics of the extras and mech files?
Fresh outta the box. About the size of a vinyl record.
Rear of box with all the text.
Forgive the pics if they don't align right. Camera is being a bitch.
Inside of box. Blu ray is in a slipcover and the book is about the size of a full volume of manga.
Also, lowering rez to make upload easier.
rear of storyboard and animation setting book.
Sample of inside the storyboard book. In addition to Chars Zaku 2 we also have the normal Zaku and Guntank along with character bios. (Pics provided upon request)
Probably, I'm going to rip the disc later tonight and I wouldn't be surprised if other anons beat me to it.
The early pre-orderers and fast shippers got their copies today.
Character book comes wrapped with the Blu ray disk case for those interested. Cover here.
Shit, you're right. Sorry, juggling getting pics and typing at same time.
Ok Guntank next, then I'll do part of a whole section to ship art. Loum is big IDK if I'll be able to get all of it.
Ok, the Loum section is a really big part near the end. Specific requests? I don't think I'll be able to get everything.
Ok grabbing the ships next.
Also forgot the other storyboard pic.
Ok, other side of the Guntank page.
Ok, I think that cover the key players. More, but I just don't want to go page by page and have it take forever.
Any other questions about the set and extras? Trying to help fellow /m/en out who couldn't get hold of this.
Cute Yas interview inside the blu ray case.
Quick translation is basically how he is happy to be working on the project and wants to do something else Gundam related soon.
Also, going thru the storyboard it appears the Kycilia Zabi nude scene was a very late addition. Wasn't drawn out for the storyboard and the note seems to indicate they had to seek permission before they could add any nudity.
Sexy black blu ray case is sexy.
I really hope volumes 2-4 get this same treatment.
The ocean liner art is in one of the above pictures.
Unfortunately, this is about it when it comes to things you asked for.
It's basically like the Unicorn release. Except they didn't translate the text on the blu ray case this time.
Also, all the extra books, keepcase,etc.
It has subs and the dub though.
thanks only need this one now and the Chivvay(red Zeon battleship)
Alright, sitting down to watch it my fellow /m/en.
Quality encodes should be out soon now that the discs are out in the wild.
If you guys have anymore questions just leave a message and I'll get to it when I get down watching the episode.
>how he is happy to be working on the project
Can't blame him. It's been like two decades since he really did some work in anime. I think he really enjoyed doing storyboards the most, since it shows at least to me.
Didn't order from my Australian provider, but got one from yahoo Auction for 9500 yen before all the fees. Might use SAL just to keep the costs low.
The Bandai Visual One batch isn't officially released yet, but due to the Laser Disk box, it will probably go above 10000 yen as opposed to other BD limited editions for other OVAs as of late.
Still pondering whether to get Unicorn Archive Boxes 2 and 3, but maybe Origin will get a color lineart book in the future, leaving the storyboards being exclusive to the collector's blu rays.
