A second post for this month! I haven’t been posting much lately (which can be blamed on my lack of motivation to post about anything other than the anime DVD/BD imports and merch I’ve bought) but probably gonna try posting more next month since the first Fate/ZERO blu-ray boxset will be released in March along with a number of Shana III stuff I’ve ordered that’s also released in that month.
Anyway, this afternoon I picked up my order of the limited edition boxset of the special Ano Hana Festival that was held in Chichibu Muse Park, Japan back in September 2011. The amazing amount of bonus physical contents is pretty astounding! Check it out after the cut.

I honestly wasn’t expecting the box that holds all the contents to be pretty big (it’s around an A4 size) but once I actually looked at it I can see why.
Inside the boxset the contents are the two BD discs for the festival, a 100 page book documenting the making of the festival to the actual day of recording, a set of 20 pinup illustrated drawing cards of the Ano Hana characters, the Ano Hana Fes. pass badge and lanyard that was given to the attendees on that day and the exclusive Ano Hana Fes. phone strap.
I also took a selected few photos of the 100 page book.
A clear A3 poster was also included from the manufacturers for those who pre-ordered the set very early on. On top of that, it also contains the autographs signed by the main cast of the Ano Hana anime series.
If you’ve seen the Wagnaria ~Natsu no Daikanshasai~ festival for the “Working!!” anime series, then you’ll probably have an idea that the Ano Hana Fes. is pretty similar to it in that they have cast interviews on their favourite scenes or shots from the anime, role-playing games, acting out scenes using their character’s voices and also performances of the OP & ED. In addition to all that, this event also had a fireworks display to keep in theme of the anime’s storyline.
Well, that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed/drooled at the photos lol. I am looking forward to the day that I will receive box 1 of the Fate/ZERO anime as that set also contains an impressive amount of bonus materials that is waiting to be photographed :P.
