Store Exclusive Bonuses:
Toranoana – A B2-size wallscroll given out if all 5 volumes are purchased, plus a lottery ticket for a chance to win a 1/1 scale size of Magical Ruby & Magical Sapphire kaleidosticks (with real voices from the seiyuus included!).
Chara-Ani – Purchase volumes 1-3 as a set and a mini cushion set will be given out. The cut off date to put in the pre-order to receive that is the 14th of August, 2013. Purchase all 5 volumes in one order and a jumbo cushion cover will be included, same cut off date for the pre-order (14th August, 2013). (sample image – not sure if it’s for the mini cushion set or jumbo cushion cover though)
I’ll probably end up importing this series from either Animate, Gamers or Sofmap as I want an artbox to hold all the volumes. Whichever store I do end up buying it from will depend on the finished artwork of the boxes once it gets updated on the official site listing (or from the other three). Toranoana’s lottery campaign for the real life-size scale of the kaleidosticks is pretty interesting…and funny for some reason XD. Imagine a guy winning both Magical Ruby & Sapphire and carrying it out in public lol, well most likely it will be given the target audience of this anime series XD. I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets put onto Yahoo Japan Auctions just to see how high the bids for it would fetch, but I personally wouldn’t bid on it.
For those who are definitely going to import this series and want store exclusives, which store would you buy it from?
