Some folks that get the regular mailer from Falcom might've noticed todays news bits. Among the talk about a strategy guide for Zwei!! PSP (merchandising! merchandising!) and more Brandish talk, there was mention of Falcom attending Comiket later this month. From what it sounds like, they will be carrying stuff mostly from Sora no Kiseki, courtesy of Kogado.
Nothing too interesting...though I suppose a Sora no Kiseki tapestry doesn't sound too bad... I figure if nothing else, I will stop by and see what they've got.
I want the Wall Scroll. Is there anyway i can order that?
or do i need someone to go to Comic Market 75?
I suppose there's a chance they'll put it up for sale much later after the event, but otherwise no you'd either need to go to Comiket or order it via a deputy from Yahoo Japan Auctions after the event.
Finally arrived in Tokyo last thing last night so went along a little later than I'd have liked to (hey, I was shattered, give me a break). But goddamn Falcom, can you leech space from a less popular company next time? I was waiting in line for over an hour and a half to get to their booth. I wasn't even sure I was going to buy anything at first, but the amount of waiting I had to do led me to think not buying anything would make the whole time such I waste I caved.
It is very nice though, and the material is quality stuff - I can see why it's a lot more expensive than a regular poster. Haven't tested the 'line shines through and makes it look like a real forest' against a window because it was dark by the time I got back, but holding it under the light in this room certainly makes it look even nicer.
Preorders will start in a few days. I presume they'll be the same price as they were at Comiket, although Kogado's shipping isn't cheap (flat rate of 1050 Yen for shipping, handling and COD fee, eesh) and they only do cash on delivery. They also don't ship internationally, so if you want them you'd have to use a deputy. Oh and the site's all in Japanese, which doesn't help either.
I still love mine, it's hanging on the wall at the bottom of my bed.

Ahaha...yeah I never got a chance to stop by Kogado's booth. Not that it would've mattered as I was already pinching cash on my trip. Barely made it home thanks to all the money I spent on overweight baggage and shipping. +_+;
But yeah it is rather nice. I will have to consider picking it up when I return to Japan next week. I suppose if enough people were interested I could in theory bring some back. Though to find a box or tube to transport it back to the States will be rather tricky...
