I couldn't imagine a better way to briefly break my hiatus than to post pictures of what arrived at my home today. What arrived at my home today, you ask?
It is unclear, but lo! A better picture emerges.
I ordered both existing Evangelion CRCs off of Mandarake about a week ago. They arrived today.
Being the person I am, I had to meticulously record the opening process.
Here they are, next to one another:
If you're wondering, that orange thing over the 2.0 CRC is a little bag that came along with the items. Here it is:
Here's the full opening of the 1.0 CRC.
There were some papers right underneath the cardboard. Couldn't read 'em, but I didn't toss them.
This is the collection of art and interviews and stuff. There's one (big) book inside the sleeve.
And here are the storyboards, part A and part B.
Here's the photos from the 2.0 CRC.
Pretty much the same as the other one, but a lot heavier. This one came with a film strip as well, which also made me super excited.
The picture isn't very clear. This is from the scene right after Sahaquiel explodes and the blood is rushing towards New Tokyo-3.
There were two books (!) inside this sleeve. One's art; the other one is filled with things more closely related to the film.
Storyboards: parts A and B, and then parts C and D.
Here's the books on my shelf:
And here's me holding both of them (wearing the silly shirt I got as a gift for Hanukkah:)
I'm insanely excited to own these. I can't wait to actually look through them, since I was so exhausted after opening the box that I actually felt tired enough that I didn't want to leaf through the books. I'll probably do that over the weekend when I finish up with more real world stuff.
