Estelle is showing off the newly released Amnesia: Memories -Remnants of Love Keepsake Box-
It just arrived direct from Iffy’s online store! The ship fee wasn’t great but it came in fast and secure! (Not all companies seem to pack correctly… I’m looking at you Goodsmile Co. >_> ) The cover is lovely and will make a nice display piece on the top of my bookshelf xD. I chose to buy the “box only” set since I decided to support the Vita version of the game, sold separately on PSN.
Let’s open it up!
The first thing we see is a stack of coasters, featuring the “romance-able” boys in the game. I was pleasantly surprised to see these are more than just a light piece of cardboard.
They are thick paper over metal (much like a button/badge) with cork bottoms! These coasters are the real deal! 8D You can use them for your drink or just let them decorate your table or dresser. I love printed artwork that can actually be used around the room. Plus artwork of the usual characters sprites is something I’ve been missing from my collection. Love them!
Remove the first tray and you will find the game’s soundtrack CD.
It comes in its own jewel case, which doesn’t always happen with bonus discs. The artwork on the outside and inside is really sleek and professional. The little things really count.
I love listening to a game’s soundtrack after playing, since you can re-live the world of the game just by hearing the familiar sound. And there’s always at least one track I’ll be addicted to, so having it on disc is really convenient. :]
The next layer has the artbook. It’s of decent size and excellent print quality. Estelle is holding it open for us~
Inside is various color art, character profiles, game cgs, and surprisingly- rough drafts and settings. The book’s layout is really well put together. I only wish that a few artworks didn’t get inevitably sucked into the book’s spine. Still a great book though; artwork is a main staple of visual novels after all.
And with that we’ve reached the bottom of the box. Thanks for reading an- wait what?
What is THAT.
It’s a pillowcase. An INCREDIBLY STUNNING body pillow case!
look at those colors! It’s so vivid! and the resolution is excellent! I’ve never seen a pillow case this good. Srsly, good dakimakura are ridiculously expensive so I haven’t owned one- until now! Definitely needs some ironing tho XDD
Let’s just get this to the iron… eh? Hey, now Estelle…
Get off the handsome boys for a second! 😄
Btw it’s 100% polyester and comes with care instructions. Use a COOL iron or else you will permanently damage the fabric!! I used a damp cloth under my iron to try and steam out the creases (it also acts as a buffer between the iron and the case.) It will take a lot of patience to get them out. Fair warning!
Ah~ there we go. The pillow fits right in! LOVE IT 8DDD
Haha! Oh no, poor Ukyo. That beachball has escaped the others’ hands, much to their dismay! 😄 I’m glad the image is so cute without being too racy, as pillow art often is. Srsly, you have to see this in real life, the colorful setting is enchanting. x3
I was surprised when Iffy announced this set for preorder, not too long before its release no less. They must have had this in their back pocket for quite awhile. The Limited Edition Keepsake Box is probably the BEST video game LE I own, despite the fact there wasn’t a physical copy of the game. The set was $40, a pretty good price considering the quality of what you get, so I can feel a little better about paying the $30 for a digital only game (but that is an entirely different topic.) They’ve really done a great job letting the international market get their hands on official Otomate goods, FINALLY.
So support otome games and related merchandise and consider getting yourself a set of Amnesia goods! I highly recommend this box! ^_^
