Whew, this should be the last in my chain orders
for now. I got Shiratsuyu no Kai Limited Edition version as well as nero project, monochrome (official website). I’ve only listened to it a few times but I think it’s crazy good a great selection of songs! My favourite tracks so far are Ai no Uta, Monochrome, Suisou, Cantarella ~grace edition~, Yakusoku no Sora, Jougen no Tsuki, Risky Game ~Kurousa-P piano edition~ , okay all the tracks.
Shiratsuyu no Kai Limited Edition version consists of the game, limited edition drama CD, booklet and illustration board. As a preorder, I also got the preorder drama CD and the portrait tokuten from NeoWing. The first half of the booklet are all coloured illustrations, including chibi ones which were all adorable! I think I’m becoming a fan of teracco’s. The second half of the booklet is in greyscale, and contains the character profiles (comments) and a little dialogue at the very end with the characters. I guess this 1/2 coloured, 1/2 greyscale is becoming a standard for Otomate – but at least in this case they dealt with the page arrangements well. And I don’t know if you can see clearly, but the illustration board has some silver tinges.
Allow me to rant a little about nero project! I was really excited for this release since it was announced since nero was the main vocalist! Moreover the line-up looked gorgeous and 12 tracks (49 minutes) + DVD (~15 minutes) for 2500 yen? Wow, I’m not used to this – at least if we’re talking about their pricing. The album has a nice mix of songs, and tracks like Renai Philosophia, Risky Game really suit nero’s voice so it was a perfect match in my opinion. The DVD contains the PVs for 4 tracks, as well as a short “making of” track. They uploaded 3 PVs on NND for promotional purposes already but…naturally the DVD one is HQ. Also, the CD booklet can be opened up into a poster (as shown above). I thought it was a neat touch. Really satisfied with monochrome!
nero has really improved so much, ahhh but so has amu asdlkajsd (Sorry, I’m too lazy to go on in detail like I did for amu’s albums lol. Speaking of amu, I never got to post about amuTen’s W.H.Y. but it’s just as awesome!)
I’m still playing Getsuei no Kusari, so you probably shouldn’t expect me to touch OZMAFIA!! or Shiratsuyu no Kai for a while…/o\
