Moe Check! ยป The Box Set of Konata Izumi

Shokku!

Received I in the mail today my long-delayed box set of the Limited Edition Lucky Star R1 DVD. I remember pre-ordering it a few months ago, and to be honest, its appearance at my doorstep was something of a surprise, especially since it had an ominous-looking label attached onto it declaring it to be free of any hazardous materials and/or contraband, so spake the Singapore Customs Office, and thus was it written, amen.

Little do they know.

Enclosed inside the magnetic-flapped box is the first DVD containing the four episodes, as well as the OP single and Konata's character album. Unlike the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya box set, there is no little drawer this time to contain the CDs, thus relying on our own ingenuity to store these treasures. Being that I wasn't kidding when I said that I was out of shelf space, I am momentarily at a loss.

A screen cleaner in the form of a small plush chocolate cornet may be found in the box. Do not eat it from either head or tail, for it is not edible.

Also included is what appears to be a T-shirt bearing a print of the (female) school uniform. I am tempted to send this as a prize to the first person who can come up with a halfway-decent interpretation of the laws of the alternate universe in which this marketing decision made any sort of sense.

    It's cute. That's why it was done.

    They could have thought of something better than a t-shirt. It may have been cute but there are a lot better things that are cute as well.

    Heh. Just wait 'til you see the next ones. We got to see them during the Lucky Star panel at Comic Con and let me just say that one of them is a school swimsuit shirt

    Well, you see… Uh… In another world, not only will cross-gender cosplay for both sexes be accepted, it is de rigeur. It is the brave, mad few who dress as anime characters from their own side of the chromosome fence. And, as Lucky Star has a male-dominated fanbase, the shirt functions as a pattern for fans to craft their own LS sailor fuku .

    Thanks for posting about this, by the way. I've been debating on whether or not to spring for the box set. My only compunction now is the box itself; I'd like to have a place to put all of the DVDs, but still. Any pictures forthcoming, by the way?

    Because uh, otaku like that kinda stuff in any dimensions/universes?

    I'd love to see a picture of that shirt, by the way.

    Why not?? I LOVE those kinds of things. In fact, anything even remotely connected to anime, printed on anything from plastic, paper to fabric holds a lot of value for me!
