Monthly Undine Volume 2 and Volume 3
After a very long wait (like 27 days since it got shipped!!) they finally arrived and I can’t be any more happier.
Monthly Undine Volume 2 (ARIA Company edition) and Volume 3 (Orange Planet edition) are the final two volumes to complete the set. Both come with the Monthly Undine magazine and a part of the ARIA Company house, where Volume 2 has the 2nd floor and Volume 3 has the top floor. The magazines, just like Volume 1, have articles relating to the featured Undine and the company they work for and also includes advertisements, Zodiac signs and a continuation of the comic serialised in it.
Monthly Undine Volume 2 (ARIA Company edition)
Monthly Undine Volume 3 (Orange Planet edition)
Now when the three levels combine…….. we get ARIA Company.
The magazines are quite nice, but unfortunetly I don’t know enough Japanese to read all of it, and it gives a good feel that it is more than just a fan book with the addition of ads, Zodiac signs, etc and the mini figures is just something extra in buying the magazine. The ARIA Company house itself is well made but can easily topple over if not balanced correctly. I had trouble placing the little girls and cats whilst not touching the house, but given my shaky hands it proved quite difficult. The Monthly Undine series is truely something every ARIA fan should have in their collection and surprisingly enough at first I only wanted these for the actual magazines themselves rather than the mini-figures. So hopefully you can find one, but my guess is that you will probably only find them on Yahoo Japan Auctions at a higher price than retail.
