[Unboxing] Uta no Prince-Sama Repeat Love: Shining Love Box – Animate Limited Edition Set

image

And another box arrived for me this week~

[well, one of many but this was the most exciting]

I did take my own advice for once and only bought the shining love box as opposed to the premium princess box because I have little space and wasn’t really interested in the bonuses. I also had the 30% off coupon to use so it wasn’t a bad price in the end!

This post will be image heavy, enter if you dare lol.

First up is animates Chara-bi magazine, (ironically) featuring Utapri Repeat Love and Kuroshitsuji on the covers. Interestingly, the most pre-ordered game for this period was Ken ga Kimi Momoyo Tsuzuri. I wonder if Utapri will feature on this list in the next chara-bi?

Right, the animate bonus was a CD featuring Sho & Ren and a “shopping bag” featuring cute chibis of the guys. The bag was cute but too small to use as a real bag? I’d say that it would make a good gift bag though, if I knew someone that liked utapri haha.

The game’s pre-order bonus was a “score sheet booklet” of music from the game. It’s not really a booklet though as all the sheets are separate. I am not a very musical person and cannot read sheet music, although some of the drawings and comments were good, so I have no idea if you could actually use these? There’s a signed poster too, which was quite nice.

The animate limited set stuff all came packaged nicely in this cardboard arrangement. I didn’t pre-order early enough to get the clear file because I was waiting for the coupon but I’m not really that fussed.

And that’s everything unpacked. I really like the illustration used for this set. I’ve nver played/watched anything related to Utapri before but I figured that I’m probably going to like Sho haha. I like the fact that the drama cd features all of the main characters. The tapestry is only B3, which is kind of small but its enough with only 1 character on it.

And now the limited edition box. I refrained from the “Princess Box” which was super expensive but this box is a nice size. For reference, it’s the same size as Maji kyun’s limited edition box aka ever so slightly wider than your Otomate Limited Edition. I hate top-opening limited editions with a passion, but nice detail on the inside flaps.

Here’s the regular edition of the game and the included drama cd. They were so lazy with this game’s cover omg. Nothing exciting here.

And now the limited edition booklet. It’s obviously styled like a magazine, which is kinda cute.

The booklet contains profiles for each of the guys, their daily schedule and a “feature” by them, including romance tips and reviews of bread you can buy in school (a bit random but ok?). There’s also a bit about the school and a short story included. I just flicked through to avoid spoiling myself before playing the game.

This is the back cover of the magazine, I have no idea who on earth this guy is but he looks WILD lolol.

And that’s it for this month. I don’t expect any more fancy sets until March (RIP wallet) but I quite liked this set. I was stuck between getting this, Black Wolves Saga or Hana Oboro. I’m not sure if I made the right choice but at least I’ll find out if all the hype around Utapri is warranted!

Bonus

Animate held an “after AGF” event this year and sold some of the leftovers from the AGF event on-line. I jumped at the chance to purchase some of the Taisho Alice goods and bought the tapestry, bromide set & 5 key chains. Actually the tapestry went out of sale but then came back in stock so I nabbed it in a separate order lol. Well, anyway, they arrived the other day and I was excited to open my key chains to see if I got any BEST BOYS and this happened:

I actually screamed. Am I Lucky or Unlucky? What are the chances? Is this life telling me to make a Shirayuki ita bag? Who knows lol but I guess that’s the chance you take when you buy “random” key chains hahahahahahahahahahahahhahahaha. (Thank goodness I actually love Shirayuki, imagine if it was 5 kaguyas or something).

 

Okay that’s me for this time, thanks for reading! I should have a drama CD post up on Friday!

  1. So THAT’S what the music book is. Haha I haven’t played the games (except the music 3) or seen the anime either, but I think Sho and Masato might be my favs. Love his hair cut, even if others call it a disaster 🙂 Really awesome haul and I hope we both love the game!

      Yeah, the music book was a bit random, I think it would be pretty hard to actually use as music sheets because of all the distracting scribbles though?
      Ah, I totally thought you’d played the game judging by your avatar, haha. Was music 3 fun?
      Yes! Hopefully the game is good! 😀

      • I’ve seen a few episodes of the anime.Not enough to “get it” but enough to say I liked Masato and Sho the best. I played Music 3 but it really didn’t inform you about any of the series’ past events. Mainly interactions between the characters that resulted in comedy or lovey dovey moments.
        Music 3 was fun and it was cheap. I wouldn’t recommend getting it unless it’s $3o or less.

        Ah I see, fair enough 🙂 Masato seems pretty nice (more characters voiced by Suzumura Kenichi can never be a bad thing).
        Thank you for the info! I’ll definitely keep an eye out for Music 3 – I’ve seen it on sale before but was worried about having to know a lot about the previous games. ^_^

      • Haha you don’t really need to worry about the game if you’re mainly going for the rhythm game. And not at all! ^^
