Germany Ain’t Playing Around!

DSC_0127auto

So, I mentioned that a certain version of The Handmaiden was on the way, well, it’s here and dear Readers, is it grande!!!

Germany went all commando on this one! Not only did they pack a full 5 Discs into the box (BD and DVD versions of the Theatrical and Extended cuts of the movie, and an Extras DVD), but they also managed to pack in the condensed version of the photobook that got released first all those months ago last year! In addition to all that goodness, they also included some cards!

For now, they are the winners but the only reason that they won over Korea was because they had the Blurays, which the Korean version did not have. But that means that Korea will be releasing a Blu-ray version and are probably leaving it up to Plain Archive! You know that release is gonna be bananas!

The Germany version did not win because of the extras because I already own a bigger version of the PB while Korea gave us a completely different PB with their Boxset. France too has a win though, for being the first one to give us a Blu-ray of the Extended Version!

Up next is the English Blu-ray coming in two months! Sadly I do not think that is going to be winning any awards, only if it has extras that are translated. Be it only the Commentary of the Extended Version or the making ofs, whatever they have translated will see a win for them. Really, they better have them translated, otherwise I am giving them a minus for taking so long to release the BDs when they aren’t doing anything productive for it!

Any way, that’s that. Jump over for more photos of this lovely Boxset of The Handmaiden from Germany…

H’ya Everyone. Been a while

DSC_0059

Hi all, it’s been so long! Reason? Well, if you were following me on twitter, you know but the reason is that I was avoiding anything that would have taken my enjoyment of Wonder Woman away and also I had probs with my PC. Yes, I am talking about the new movie that just came out last weekend.

It’s been covert but most of you probably can tell I am a huge DCEU fan. After what happened with the first three movies, even though I enjoyed them all, I can’t deny that my first viewings were ruined by what was going on through my mind, as a result of me reading all the reviews, reactions and posts about said movies before  I got the chance to watch them myself.

It took me three viewings to finally start enjoying BvS on my own terms because all I saw were the flaws that people had pointed out and that took a lot out of it. Eventually of course I got over it but the sour taste still remains. I wanted to enjoy those movies the first time with the rest but alas.

And so for Wonder Woman, I decided to hide away from the interwebs as much as I could. It was hard but I managed it and I have never been so glad! Yesterday was my 5th and final viewing of Wonder Woman but as for what I thought about it, that is for another post.

For now I am just letting you know I am back and sharing some of the SWAG I got in these past few weeks while away. Other than this, a lot of other great things happened in this period. My birthday happened, a 7 year old ship finally delivered the good for all involved, making my forever happy I stuck with them all through these challenging seasons, yuri is everywhere, seriously, a lot of things happened while I was in hiding. Hopefully I get to write about all of them!

Anyway, jump over for pics of the interesting of SWAG I got. As for DIVA, I just replaced the parts that died but I am planning on a full upgrade soon. I also grabbed a new camera (see twitter) that I used to grab these pics. Yes, my S8 camera is not bad but come on! A phone camera is still a phone camera. Or maybe it was because I got hooked on cameras after re-watching the Pang brothers’ ‘Ab-normal Beauty’ (We need to talk about this BTW)? I don’t know.

The collection includes my very first Plain Archive purchase The Silenced Blu-ray, The special 2disc French Handmaiden Blu-ray, the Korean 3Disc Handmaiden DVD, and the Netherlands 2Disc Fingersmith DVD. The Germany version of Handmaiden is on the way and the English version of the Special Extended Blu-ray coming in Aug is already on pre-order.

You all know what this means, right? Why I have all medium of The Handmaiden? Well, you will soon find out!

For now, it is great to be back. So jump over for the pics of what comes in these lovely boxsets…

Madoka is Happy, I’m Happy!

My NGT purchase from HMV is finally here! And with it, some Homurambo!

Sadly, I missed the sale on Homucifer, which would have been the best to go with Madokami on my shelf but alas, I was late to the game and missed it! So I took the next best thing – Homurambo!

Madoka finally has her other half and that makes me happy to see her happy, also HMV was so nice to me, giving me my very first towel and poster and to make things more awesome, Yukirin is no both of them!

Happys everywhere!

Also it makes me incredibly happy to see that my theory of those CD covers was on point! If you remember in my other post about this single, I speculated that if you put the covers together, Captain Kitarie would lead the group while Senpai Yukirin would bring out the rear and that they were communicating to each other.

Well, will you look at that towel with all covers put together! So, so happy!

As for Madoka, I saw a very interesting figure set of the two that I want to get my hands on no matter what! If anyone knows where I can order this…

Please, for all that is holy, tell me! I want this ultimate figure set in my life!

Anyway, jump over for more pics of the swag…

Fantasy v Reality

PSX_20170418_210428

Dear Readers,

I cannot tell anymore what is fantasy and what is reality! In a world where your dreams come true very often kind of makes fantasy and reality blur that line between them! In a time where you get a Fingersmith movie adaptation by one Park Chan-wook, a time where you get gems like ‘Chikyuu de tatta Futari” and “A Girl at My Door“, like, these are all things that I only fantasized about only years ago.

And today, dear Friends, today I just found this wonderful post on Plain Archive’s Instagram! You all do not know this but every week in the top posts for the day, that is posts read most during the day, ‘More On The Silenced‘ has been in the top 10 even just the day before yesterday it was up there.

This means that people really are still interested in this movie despite having been out for a long while. I already own the DVD, if you remember my post about that but I was kind of not expecting a Bluray at all and only dreamed of the possibility!

No more dreaming for me! Plain Archive is on the ball and you know what this means – Subtitles!!! Yes, official subs for this hidden gem of a movie! I liked that post then went to their site to pre-order faster than I am supposed to be able to!

But when I got there, it was not in the pre-order list! was I TOO SOON™? I think I was too!

I am now content to wait for their version of Ahgassi and the American version in August if I am going to be getting The Silenced soon.

Just look at that fabulous swag though >.< I can’t wait to get my grabby paws on them. Bluray of The Silenced…

Blessed!

I’m a class A Ba~ka!

Why? Well, guess who just bought The Handmaiden record?

Me.

Guess who doesn’t own a Record Player?

Me!

Like, what even me? What was you thinking me?

I do not know and I do not care! I just had to own this record! The jacket is out of this world! It is after all based on that scene, that impossible bathtub scene with the tooth! I will never ever get over that scene!

The jacket is too big to scan so you will have to settle for phone pics I am afraid! But really, just watch the movie and you will get the exact pic in HD!

I love this movie!
