Some of you may have been wondering what the box at the corner of my desk in this post was. Well, to answer your questions, here’s a close-up look at it: Dengeki G’s Festival! vol. 18. As with all of the Festival! volumes, this one comes with a short book and a box with some special items.
Volume 18 is focused on the eroge Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate, otherwise known as Love, Election & Chocolate. I first found out about this game when I saw it in an issue of Dengeki G’s Magazine last year and I just loved the character designs and artwork, which was why I bought this. The game went on sale in Japan on October 29 this year and was produced by game company Sprite. Below is the opening theme of the game. The theme song is “Initiative” by Mami Kawada.
The following are the girls from which you can “choose” from:
and Michiru Morishita.
Personally, I like Chisato and Michiru ^.^
There’s also a slew of side characters:
Some crazy loli mad scientist.
A cute… dude? I guess gay guys need their fix too.
The guy on the right looks really scary.
The main reason why I got this volume of Dengeki G’s Festival! wasn’t just because Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate was going to be the main theme, but also because I heard it was going to have a bunch of nice illustrations. They finally got to that section at the back of the book.
I liked the illustration of Chisato and Satsuki, but I really wished that they had put in more than just three illustrations. The ones of Michiru are nice too, but they’re a little risqué, hence the link.
The back of the book was surprisingly not Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate related, instead it had an advertisement for a Kirino figure. I don’t think it looks that great, her face is a bit off and she doesn’t give off that flashy aura that she usually has.
Now some of you have probably been wondering “what was in that box?” There are actually preview images on the cover, but now you can see the actual items:
Dengeki G’s Festival! vol. 18 comes with a Michiru microfibre cloth, a Satsuki mouse pad, and a Chisato Dakimakura cover. It figures they’d use the three most popular girls for the bonus items.
I used the Michiru cloth to clean my DS. It works great: wipes off dust and fingerprints, and you get to stare at Michiru in the process.
Even though Satsuki didn’t make my list of favourite characters, I still love this illustration of her. Unforetunately, I’ve been using this mousepad for a few days and it doesn’t seem to want to stay still, I might have to tape it down or something. So while it’s nice to look at, it’s not nice to use.
Up next is the Chisato dakimakura cover. I’m sure you all know what these things are, and if you don’t, a simple search is all you need. Considering their purpose, it’s not surprising to find more revealing images printed on it (which is why these images are hidden as well). If you haven’t seen one of these before, they’re HUGE. I could only fit half of it on my desk.
I couldn’t get the whole thing in one shot so I took three and stitched them together.
This is my first time writing about a dakimakura, so I don’t know what to say other than it’s smooth and soft (and no, I don’t have a pillow that’ll fit in that thing)
I was pretty upset at the lack of illustrations, but at least it came with some interesting items which makes this not so bad of a buy. At least now I know what all of the girls’ names are.
