ARIA 2008 Wall Calendar

December 9, 2007 | Author: | In: Anime Blogs, ARIA The Natural, ARIA The Origination, Merchandise

Now of course, when they release a desktop calendar, there will always be a wall calendar, and this year is no exception. Having ordered it together with the 2008 Desktop calendar, I was greatly anticipating what the 2008 wall calendar holds. Having enjoyed immensely what the 2007 wall calendar had, I could only speculate that it would be just as awesome. So hit the jump to check out the photos.

Just like when I bought this last year, Amazon shipped it in a very LARGE box where the box that contains the wall calendar is only half it’s size. Plus the most annoying thing with Amazon and it’s express shipping, there has to be someone home to sign for the package, and if there is no one there, they leave a notice saying to come pick it up at the depot, and that depot is like halfway towards Sydney. Such a pain having to go all the way down there to pick it up after work, but luckily the depot doesn’t close until 8pm. Though most would think just get them to redeliver it. Well I’ve done that before, even set a time, and a lot of the time, the delivery person never arrives on time. ~sigh~ Oh and click on the images to see a larger version.

Just like last years, 7 different prints, and all lovely selections to be used for a wall calendar. News ones for me are first one and the third last one. The pairing art works are the cover for the ARIA The ANIMATION drama CDs, but these are the full scale version, where the drama CDs are cropped. The 4th image, the one of the building, is the full scale version of the cover for ARIA The NATURAL Original Soundtrack due.

In the end, I find it very hard to compare this to the 2007 wall calendar. They’ve chosen a nice selection for each one, but out of the 2008 set, I would have to say the cover art for this calendar is my favourite, and then the actual pairing art works. So with the end of 2007 coming soon, what will happen to the 2007 calendar? Well as I mentioned in the 2007 wall calendar post, I’ll most like end up cutting out the images and have them laminated and turn them into posters. Now I just need to find a suitable place that can do it well.

Also to note, I WON’T SCAN THESE, so don’t bother asking. If you really want the images for these, I suggest you buy them yourself as it only costs ¥2000, which is dirt cheap. Buy your copy over at Amazon Japan here. HLJ never seem to stock the wall calendar at all.

I have not unwrapped my 2008 Evangelion calendar yet, despite having it in possession for more than a month. I just can’t bear to do, even if not doing so would be defeating the purpose of getting the calendar in the first place.

Bubby: There is never enough ARIA.

Fisherman Horizon: I figured as much, but still, it’s good to have large scale prints of some of the known works though.

double: Yeah a calendar needs to be used. Besides, once you’re finished with it, you can make them into posters.

Alfisti: Amazon Japan is one of the more reliable places to get your DVDs or books. Whether you want to spend that extra bit on the shipping is up to you.
ron~: Never enough ARIA! And I do plan to one day visit Venice because of ARIA, lol.
AOforever1: It’s good to know that this time I didn’t make you all jealous.

TheBigN: You should, it’s a worthwhile purchase, plus it’ll look great on your wall.

AS: Nothing like a dose of ARIA goodness before an exam.
