Chibi's Ultimate Simoun Collection

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:08 pm

Consider this thread a work in progress. I created a thread separate from what is already made simply because I have quite a bit of stuff and I wanted a way to lump it all together. I've created separate posts for each type of merchandise that I have, and included pictures and descriptions. Here are the types of merchandise you'll find here:

- DVDs
- Manga, Light Novels, & Doujinshi
- Video Game
- CDs
- Genga
- Background & Layout Sketches
- Character & Object Designs
- Miscellaneous
- Commissions
- Cosplay

DVDs

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:11 pm

This is probably the first thing most people end up getting, but I figured I'd make a section for it anyway. I think this bit is self-explanatory as far as what it is so I'll skip that, and add the images instead. I first bought the Endless Melody Collection just days after finishing the series (though it may have been before that). A few months later I decided to collect the individual volumes and had all of those before summer ended, thanks to many Borders sales and coupons.

Endless Melody Collection



Volume 1



Volume 2



Volume 3



Volume 4



Volume 5



Entire Group



Bootlegs

Following are some very badly subbed bootlegs I got ahold of from a member of deviantArt. They were free as long as I paid the shipping fee. I got them simply for collecting purposes. Well, that, and the cover art on one was so pretty.



These two DVDs have the entire series between them.



There seems to be another DVD to this one. It's a case with a special slipcover. Inside are two DVDs that house eps 14-26 betwen them. I'd love to know if the first part of the series was done this way. This disc set was done by the same group that did the first set above because the subs are the same, just slightly faded at the bottom.

Manga, Light Novels, & Doujinshi

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:13 pm

Out of all of these, the manga is perhaps the easiest to get ahold of, though all are quite hard to find.

Manga


I only have a physical copy of the official manga that ran in yuri-hime in three parts. My copy is in Chinese, and was acquired through Play-Asia for about $15. Through it I discovered that there are a few variations in the beginnings to some chapters, and this is documented elsewhere. Some chapter beginnings were changed when an official volume was published.

I am unsure if there was a physical separate copy created of the Megumi gag manga.



Light Novels

There were two light novels created, although their true story remains unknown. I have no idea of the exact story portrayed in each of these books and only a guess that they go along with the anime storyline somewhat, based on the images within the book. My copies are in Chinese so I doubt they will be translated. I have not found Japanese copies of either book so far in my searches.

Light Novel #1



Light Novel #2



Together



Doujinshi

Last but not least, the doujinshi. I have no physical copies of many of these, since most are fan created. I will however, soon have a copy of one doujin, pictured below. Most of my doujinshi are collected into a large red binder, pictured below. Each doujin is tabbed out and the language it is in given. If there is a translated version, that is included as well.





The Yun x Aaeru doujin is a recent find. I've known of its existence, and finally got it cheap on yahoo!Japan. Mostly, it was curiosity that got me. Now that I have this, I can provide a better understanding of the story. Yun apparently loved Mamiina in some form and is remembering her. Aaeru visits Yun with drinks and they talk, which leads to Yun remembering Mamiina. In the end these two kiss, and that leads to all sorts of sexual rompage. It's really not appropriate to post here, but the sexual stuff was sorta...expected. It didn't seem natural, but then again, I don't know what the two were saying. After the sex, Aaeru stays the night.



My newest doujin will be an Aaeru x Neviril one. The title is "Distance Between Lips" according to Google Translate. This one actually has a lot of the comics with the cherry stem and knotting it. I have many of them saved. Very cute, and very much G rated. Also, Aaeru's not happy about something and I'm not sure what. She can tie a knot in a stem, so it's something else XD

Video Game

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:14 pm

The Simoun video game was released for the PS2 and is only available in Japan. At the beginning of summer I acquired a Japanese PS2 so that I might play the game, and it is easily playable without knowing a thing about the Japanese language. It is, however, recommended that you have an understanding of a tactical RPG video game setup because you'll find it very easy to adapt to. The game itself presents an alternate storyline aboard the Messis. You end up coming across these desert Sibyllae and it all goes from there... I have not finished the game yet myself, but I am halfway through I believe.

I have the Limited Edition Box Set of the game, so I got some nifty extras. Surprisingly, the LE only costs about $30 more than the regular edition, so it's worth it. You get a nice box case, 2 small manga books, a data CD of goodies, and a storyline booklet as well.

2 Small Manga Books



Manga 1

CDs

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:14 pm

Getting a complete collection of all the CDs available is a challenge. The easiest to buy via website are the OSTs and the Drama CD. The OP and ED singles are also currently available via an English site. The Flight CDs, however, are only available via Yahoo!Japan. If you use a deputy service, the Special Flight CD is an easy snag. Flight 1 and Flight 2 CDs are the rarest CDs of the entire set, and good luck finding them. It took me months to finally see copies being sold.



Complete Set of CDs (All but the Drama CD pictured; it's on its way)





Both OST CDs feature music from the anime and are a good way to relax. You'll also get the shortened versions of the OP and ED songs. OST II features a biography booklet, while OST I features a general overview booklet that includes outfits.

[Pic coming soon]

The Drama CD is like fanfic on crack. If you read the Okazu entry on the CD, you'll see why. It's an amusing listen.





Flight 1 and Flight 2 CDs are compilations of the 26 episode radio show done by Neviril and Rodoreamon's VA's called Radio Wave DE Ri Maajon. Each set also includes an extra CD that has more footage on it. I'm not sure if it is outtakes or what. I've only gotten to episode 10, but I fell in love with the show. It's a great way to relax and laugh, even if you have no idea what's going on. As I said above, these are very rare CDs and would definitely take some work to find.



Special Flight CD is a special release containing the episode done to celebrate the release of the PS2 game. It's quite long, and is just as entertaining as the other Flight CDs. This one is easily found on Yahoo!Japan all the time and usually goes pretty cheaply.







OP and ED Singles are pretty self explanatory. You get the singles, a B side, and a karaoke version of each song. I like the cardboard covers that come with these.

Genga

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:14 pm

Genga are very addicting once you buy your first piece. Genga are usually hand drawn pieces used in the production of the anime. In the case of Simoun, it is all hand drawn and none of it is copied. Everything in color is, of course, hand drawn.

I'm going to post all the genga I currently have here:



Aaeru & Neviril



Aaeru & Neviril



Aaeru



Floe



Aaeru



Aaeru



Neviril



Neviril



Neviril



Aaeru & Neviril



Aaeru & Neviril



Aaeru



Paraietta



Neviril



Rodoreamon



Defense Minister



Wauf



Rodoreamon, Kaimu, Vyura, Paraietta, Alti

Background & Layout Sketches

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:15 pm

More recently I started acquiring some background and layout sketches. I happened to find some on Yahoo!Japan that I liked and I may collect them from time to time. The layouts are typically copies, but from what I've seen of Simoun's they appear hand drawn. The backgrounds are all hand painted. I'm going to insert images of the ones I have, though they are what I saved from the auction. When I have them in my hands, I'll get better scans.

Settei (Character & Object Designs)

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:15 pm

I've been buying copies of settei (character and object designs) and so far have a set of 173 different ones, with some copies. I have a set of 160 on the way. I will post some of the images here, and then I'll list the types of design art that I've created folders for. These images are really good for getting the layout of a room, detailed designs for characters, and even some original ideas that weren't used for some of the objects.

Some examples:



Nightgowns w/ Aaeru & Neviril



Young Aaeru

My folders:

Aaeru
Alti
Arcus Prima Rooms & Objects
Cadets
Communications Staff
Dominura
Enemy Soldier
Grandpa's House
Messis Rooms & Objects
Nightgowns
Other Backgrounds
Other Objects
Paraietta
Pilot Underclothes
Rodo's Doll
Sibylla Dress
Simoun
Temple (Mamiina's Village)
Unknown Dux (Mamiina's Village)
Unknown Sibyllae (Mamiina's Village)
Vyura

Miscellaneous

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:16 pm

This section is meant for any miscellaneous merchandise I come across. I don't expect it to become very large, but who knows?

This is a phone card for the magnetic punch phones in Japan. It's unused and still has all of its units on it. I know this because it is unpunched. It was Aaeru/Neviril and adorable so I had to have it.





Next I have a shirt, created and given to me by the wonderful Emma. I love this shirt to pieces because it combines my love of the phrase "I'm awesome!" with my favorite character. I've always wanted a shirt with the "Hello. My name is AWESOME! tag on it."





Here's my newest piece. I got it into my head that I wanted a custom football jersey. I used LogoSportswear.com as my site, mostly because they have no minimum order and no setup fees. They have a really nice designer program that you can use, and I was able to make my shirt resemble Aaeru's pilot jacket.

Commissions

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:16 pm

Commissions are perhaps my favorite thing to have done for Simoun. I've acquired quite a few and figured I'd post some of them here as well. If I remembered the commissioner, I put it with the piece:



Yuri Fan Badge by Scuttlebutt Inc



Aaeru & Neviril watercolor



Aaeru & Neviril magnets by Kasandra-Callalily



Aaeru & Neviril messenger bag by RhiaKolareny









Aaeru & Neviril coffee mug set of 4.



I forgot my buttons! I don't see how. I commissioned these at Otakon and I forget the name of the commissioner. I love collecting buttons, but I was guaranteed to never run across these two...so I had them made instead!

[pic coming when it's finished]

Aaeru & Neviril wallpaper/skin by maarika (LJ)







Aaeru plush by Planet Go Boom! I commissioned this back in mid-August to be done in time for my birthday, November 12. It was to be my gift to me. These are the pics that the commissioner sent me today before she shipped it. I love it. The only thing missing is the glove cover on the left arm, but it's not a big thing. This is actually an 18 inch plush, so it's not your usual UFO catcher size! I'll add another pic of her with me once I have it.

Cosplay

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:47 pm

I've been working on getting together a cosplay for Aaeru and I'm going to post the progress shots. I plan to take better images once I have my wig. The ribbon on the dress featured is not the one I'm using, but it was all I had at the time. I also have a Tempus Spatium pendant that isn't pictured.



The commissioner sent me images of the finished wig last night. I'll have it in my hands next week. Here you go:

Re: Chibi's Ultimate Simoun Collection

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Sat Nov 06, 2010 12:29 pm

Update: 11/6/10

I've added a new doujin I scored today on Y!J. It was nice to find it because I technically should have been at a small convention this weekend, but I had to forgo that because of grad school stuff. Finding this made me smile, especially because it's an Aaeru/Neviril doujin. Find it in the Manga, Light Novel, and Doujin section.

I've also added images of my Aaeru wig that the commissioner sent me yesterday. I will have the week next week so I can put everything together finally. It turned out great, and the commissioner had a great time working with it too. Find it in the Cosplay section.

I added a genga I received for my birthday from my mom. She picked it out on her own, and it just so happens that it was one I had been wanting for quite some time.

I added some DVD bootlegs that I picked up from a dA member. All she wanted was shipping paid. Some pretty cover art on the one. I still need to add the shirt that Emma sent me. I also need to add new doujinshi images and descriptions.
