Final Fantasy XV Original Soundtrack unboxing

Welcome everyone! Today is the first month of 2018. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years. It has been busy for me and my family but I did get to relax and enjoy the gifts I got from Christmas. One of my gifts I was happy to get is the video game soundtrack to Final Fantasy XV. It’s called Final Fantasy XV Original Soundtrack and it has the all the songs from the video game in four discs. I will leave the pictures down below but I want to talk about this fine collection.

Having this soundtrack, it’s a big set because like mentioned, it has four discs and that is just for the standard version. The first set of pictures shows the front cover of the CD and the back has the main four heroes of the series.

Opening the CD collection will have the four discs but with Noctis and his friends pictures on each one.

There’s also booklet included in the collection which shows the game’s scenes from the video game, an illustration by Yoshitaka Amano (well character artist and designer who did Final Fantasy IV and anime Vampire Hunter D) list of songs, credits and exclusive chat with  the video game director Hajime Tabata and music composer Yoko Shimomura.

Last but not least, we get a group picture of the four heroes: Noctis, Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus.

Unbreakable Bonds

This is an excellent collection if you enjoy FFXV and music like me and want to relieve the moments by listening to the tracks. My favorites would be  the main theme of Final Fantasy and Sominus. As much as I enjoyed the collection, I felt like this cover of the CD could have done better. The cover pretty much as the game title with a black background. I changed it to the video game cover where Noctis and his group are with the Regalia with the dark blue sky. Besides the cover, it’s not a bad collection and if you want the songs, you should get this set physical or digital. If you are rich or a hardcore fan more than me, go get the blu-ray collection or the Limited Edition in which both include a digital copy with the physical copy.

Unboxing – My Hero Academia Season 1 Limited Edition

Hello everyone, this is Matthew and I am here to write another special unbox post on one of my anime DVDs. In this post, I will be sharing the details on my copy of the limited edition of My Hero Academia Season 1. I got this DVD for a real good price during a sale from Rightstuf when they were having those Mega Deal days in the summer; I got it for about $35. This post will be short and I won’t spoil the anime.

The limited edition came in with a plastic wrap which contained the cardboard DVD/Blu-Ray boxset. Wrapped with the box is a replica of Izuku Midoriya’s notebook in which contains the superhero All Might’s signature. The notebook does not fit in the box since it is occupied with two DVD cases and an artbook. The case for the set is contained with hardcover case slip and it has inside, two DVD cases with both DVD and Blu-Ray discs. In one of the cases, it has a small keychain of the protagonist Izuku Midoriya. Along with set, it also has an artbook of the anime characters. It’s a book which shows the characters appearance and color and sketches.

Overall, the limited edition has both formats for viewing pleasures, a notebook with an autograph of All Might, an artbook and a keychain. If this set goes on sale again, I recommend getting this copy instead of the standard version.

 

 

Death Note All-in-One Manga Edition unboxing

Some of you may have seen my Twitter but I recently bought the entire manga collection Death Note all in one book, literally! As a way to promote the live-action Netflix film Death Note movie, Viz Media, English Company that license the manga and anime of titles like Death Note, Naruto and others, licenses and re-release the entire 12-volume of Death Note and compile it into a single book. With this book in my collection, I will talk about the interesting details of the book and I won’t spoil anything related to the story.

When you buy the book new, it has a promotional sticker attached to the plastic wrap promoting the Netflix movie. The book itself is actually encased in a protective case that helps clear away from dust and keep the pages white.

The white sleeve case displays Light with the characters in front and on the edges, it shows the Shinigami Ryuk staring at you. Once you take out the case, you get the book itself with all the pages compressed and the cross on the cover.

Here comes the meat! The book is very small compared to the other manga I own. According to the description, the manga edition has shrunk to pocket size for easy holding and make it easier than caring it like a VizBig or carrying a case of individual books. I was worried that the book was going to have transparent pages; from I heard, the 3-in-1 of the Dragon Ball manga had issues where the paper was too thin. However, the pages in the manga here wasn’t see through and it felt really fine. The binding of the book is pretty strong and durable! You can turn the page to all the way back to the book or start in the beginning and it doesn’t damage the book. I did look into the book and we do get an Epilogue chapter as promised but the took away the funny comic panels instead. One of the comic that I liked is when Ryuk asks Santa Light for a silver GameBoy Advance SP, but it didn’t show up and I think the only way to see it again is if you have the individual books or the black editions (2-in-1).

Overall, the One-in-All set is perfect for new and old fans. It helps collect the entire story and the price is reasonable. I got my book from Barnes and Noble for $28 online and that was with taxes in it. If you don’t mind having a large pocket as oppose to a manga volume, I would recommend it.

 

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition unboxing review

Better than never I always say. This is another unboxing posts and it will be super short. This post will be covering the limited edition version to the recent Square Enix game Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition. This game came out on January 24 but since I preordered online, I got this game on Saturday, January 28th. People ordered the Limited Edition receives the game in different cover box and an exclusive Disney Pin.

On the cover of the box, the cover is displayed with the game’s title along with simple patterns and symbols. The game also includes the actual hard case of the standard game with the characters on it. Unlike my Deluxe Edition to the Final Fantasy XV game, the box was cardboard or one of those plastic boxes; it has some bends and it was not a steelbook case. The pin was pretty to cool have. It was very small and it was my first pin I ever got.

Overall

The Limited Edition pretty cool to have especially if you are a Disney fanatic. If you are pin lover, this is a must have and if you want to own a second pin to the previous one if you preoredered Kingdom Hearts HD. 2.5 Remix. If you are not much pin fan, you are better off just buying the standard game. Getting this edition doesn’t come with any dlcs not even an artbook like 1.5. If you want this game, you better off with the standard.
