Swag: Kagerou Project Part 1 – MEKAKUCITYRECORDS Special Edition

Today I recieved a big box in the mail, which is always fun.

It’s slightly less fun when said mail comes before 9am in the morning and I have to drag myself out of bed to get to the door before the delivery guy walks off.

But anyway, Kagerou Days!

2013-06-07 15.29.41This is the special edition of Jin’s latest album, “MEKAKUCITYRECORDS”, succeeding last year’s “MEKAKUCITYDAYS”. The white box you see here is a placeholder, you’re meant to put your DAYS cd box there. I don’t have a physical copy of DAYS though. Maybe I should buy one just to put in there.

The bottom, red one, is RECORDS.

2013-06-07 15.32.31This booklet is mostly just lyrics. There are a few notes at the very back. Every song has a two-page spread, with an illustration either from the song’s animated clip, or an illustration from the song’s events.

2013-06-07 15.35.06There’s a big art section in the book. First are pages like above, each page showing an artwork, and then the guest artist and their comment regarding it (For example, the picture on the left page here is drawn by the artist for popular japanese franchise “Senran Kagura”), and then after all those pages, they show the full sized art like so:

2013-06-07 15.35.53And lastly, some special, and interesting, pages by the author of the Kagerou Days manga series, with a little addition to the overall story. Not showing it all, but here are two of the pages.

Anyway, I apologize for the terrible camera handling. While going through and doing up this post, my original plan was to say “It’s not like I’m a photography student or anything”, but as I actually got to this point, I remembered I did take a two year Photography and Digital Media course in high school. So, er… it was cold, and I was shivering. Yeah.

Join me later for Part 2 of my Kagerou Project Swag, where I show off my other purchase… Kagerou Daze: Official Visual Fanbook!
