Candy Capers #2 by oxboxer
As if this gorgeousness wasn’t enough THEY’RE HOLDING HANDS ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE COVERS!
These are really beautiful cover designs. I have my doubts that anyone looking for them will see this blog, but just in case, these are the relatively new Blu-ray sets for Utena. Their release is probably responsible for that art show I went to a couple months ago:
Anyway, even in Japan they are pretty expensive, Amazon Japan has them for around $350 for the set (translated roughly to usd) which is still way less than CD Japan, but still. Expensive. Personally, I just bought the Right Stuf remastered DVD box sets at their release last year, and they are gorgeous, have fantastic subtitle translations that I am in awe of, and cost enough that I’m not ready to purchase another set right away. Although it is a very, very pretty set. It also has a few small extras (of course) but mostly the big deal is better quality.
I hope this helps someone! If anyone has questions I live in Japan and love Utena a lot, those are my (pitiful) credentials.
“Today, Scholastic unveiled an all-new cover for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone! And better yet, it’s just the first of seven (7!) new covers that will appear on U.S. trade paperback editions coming in September 2013. It’s all part of the upcoming 15th anniversary of the U.S. publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first book in J.K. Rowling’s best-selling Harry Potter series.” [x]

Started reading Brave Story and I’m really enjoying it so far. Might be worth buying hardcover for this beautiful art by Dan May.
Hawkeye #1, August 2012, cover by David Aja and Matt Hollingsworth
Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham #1, November 2000, cover by Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart
This was a really good mini-series. A Lovecraftian version of Batman.
One of my favorites.
