Odin Sphere with Artworks
It’s HERE! I had to order this through HimeyaShop.com since it had the Odin Sphere with Artworks listed, unlike Play-Asia that couldn’t give me a definite answer about the artbook. The Odin Sphere Artworks was a special pre-order item only available to Japan orders, so I had to act fast to secure a copy since I was fairly late in pre-ordering one.
I had to order 2 copies, my friend was also excited about it, and is the main reason why I got into it thus making me use more of my precious money…
Well, my friend called me, told me that the EMS tracking indicated that the item was at my local postie (I live in an apartment, so large items are to be collected from the local post office). I couldn’t leave straight away to check my letterbox for the postage card as I needed to wait for the plumber to fix my toilet =/
Anyway, I went downstairs and check the letter box like some druggie trying to find his narcotics stash. Not there, NOT THERE! @_@
I called up my friend to make SURE that the item was at the postie, he assured me, so I went off to the postie through the bitter cold of a Melbourne winter with storm clouds looming…after it was bright and sunny in the morning.
After explaining to the grumpy clerk at the counter that I didn’t have my card, I got the package! Rushed home and ripped it apart, Odin Sphere GET!
All the items were plastic wrapped so I couldn’t tamper with my friend’s copy first >.>
The book is GORGEOUS, the front cover is superb and the best thing about it is the HARD COVER, with a lovely matte finish which makes me want to rub my cheeks on it endlessly.
Gah! I wish I had a digital copy of the Artworks as well, they’re simply ORGASMIC! I’m scared to look at it for prolonged periods in fear of drooling all over it, thus diminishing it’s value.
The Artworks contains a Creator’s Message, Story, Main Characters, Characters, Illustration Gallery, Background Art and The Early Drawings (concepts), all of which I’m happy to drool over :3
I played a few minutes of the game and from what I tried to understand, the game is FUN. I am holding off though, I want to get the US version so I can actually understand the story properly, plus it also has dual audio.
