BL Anime: Fuyu no Semi Special Revised Edition (Miki Shinichirou x Morikawa Toshiyuki)

Fuyu no Semi OVA Special Edit冬の蝉 -特別編集版

Uuuwah… another item to add to my shopping list :D

The Damage: 9524yen (excl. shipping)
The DVD (First Press Edition comes with a manga) will be released on 28 March 2008! Pre-orders are already open. *happy dance*

I love period and fantasy stories. In this case, I absolutely loved the story and the voice acting was very very good. The drama CD and manga were lovely but nothing beats watching the characters come alive in an anime. I do have some complaints about the animation quality cos sometimes our beloved Akizuki-san (Morikawa Toshiyuki 森川智之) and Kusaka (Miki Shinichirou 三木真一郎) don’t look as well-drawn as they’re supposed to be… but oh well, nothing’s perfect. You can truly feel the love between the characters. I cried buckets while watching it.

Even though I’ve already blown a few hundred bucks on the Limited Edition OVAs… I guess I just have to have this in my collection too. If you purchase from comi-comi and buy the DVD and OST bundle… you get a special comi-comi only tokuten. I’m still considering if I should get the bundle. It costs 13000yen (excl. shipping) *dies* OMG. *dies again*

Haiz… BL and Anime is such an expensive hobby :(

Fuyu no Semi OVA LE 1

As a side note about Fuyu no Semi Limited Edition OVAs, depending on which vol. you’re looking for, it is still possible to get them from HMV Japan, CDJapan, Amazon Japan and Playasia. Initially I ordered all 3 DVDs from Amazon Japan at a preorder discount of 26% off each DVD. However, when the time came for the package to be delivered, I had to return and refund my order due to customs issues. Stocks are slowly but surely running out but do look around to compare and for sales to maximize your dollar ^^ In the end, I managed to get my Vol. 1 & 2 during the Christmas 07 sales at CDJapan at a great bargain (30% off if I remember correctly) But coz the Limited Edition Vol. 3 was only available from Playasia at no discount (since I had to give up on Amazon Japan and it was no longer available from the other shops I listed here), I paid full price for it o.O oh~my bleeding wallet…

In a way, I’m thankful I’m not a big fan of Okane ga Nai お金がない cos the Limited Edition DVD prices are seriously astronomical *sweatdrop* Granted there’re lots of goodies bundled with the DVDs… but still… o.O


HMV Japan just shipped my Fuyu no Semi (Special Revised Edition) DVD!!! YAY~~~~ happiness!!! :D

Oh the joy when it arrives at my door step… can’t wait xD

31/03/2008 Update!

The package just arrived, quite heavy, still feels warm in my hands… :D

This is a worthy buy for all fans of the manga and anime. The movie-length version combines 3 episodes previously released in 3 individual DVDs. Not only has the graphics and animation improved, it also boasts newly animated scenes (and sex scenes) not included in the episodic releases!

The DVD is placed in a slim cut-out box and this edition also comes with a manga of Fuyu no Semi with “traditional” binding, cover and pages that resemble historical Japanese books. The size is slightly smaller than A4. I wasn’t expecting that. It is a nice touch. Pity the actual clear plastic box to hold both items wasn’t in the same flavour. (=^_^=) Ah~ if only they also release figurines for Fuyu no Semi…

Anyway, for a fan, it is definitely a lovely addition to the collection.

70% off Limited edition Fuyu no Semi Vol 1. :D Get it if you haven’t got your copy yet!

70% off Limited edition Fuyu no Semi Vol 2.

  1. i m looking for fuyu no semi song by Morikawa Toshiyuki..please if you know where i can download it email me the link to my email penguinnya_okoy [at]


  2. Yea~ smut is a nice distraction. Smut with good story? Yum~

    Agrees, its double-standards hehe but its more widely accepted for guys to like hentai and yuri *shrug* Hopes for more Asami… the new chapters are coming up too slow =_=

    I watched half of the first season only :D Your fav is Giroro? My fav is Tamama. I love it when he goes berserk xD My “first love” was Kermit. I used to be jealous of Miss Piggy when I was a small kid. Strange :P

    I think real frogs are cute, especially tree frogs…

    I would be ok with most reptiles unless they suddenly appear out of nowhere and jump right into your face ^^”

  3. I consider pure smut for entertainment-purpose only, wouldn’t take it personally.
    After all, it’s just a story…
    Of course lots of male friends asking me, “How come girl like that huh?”
    I usually reply, “same thing why you love hentai and yuri.”
    Boys are just jealous becoz they’re no hotter than Asami Ryuichi ~LOL

    Well, i don’t watch keroro GUnso the entire episode but watch the movies and kinda take it heavily because i have Giroro figurines and plushies at my comp desk.
    I adore those cute frogs, but in real life i’m really scared of them.

  4. I don’t know any BL fans in real life, so I’m not sure about their social life LOL~ I think when people are at the height of their obsession, they’re kinda crazy. Since BL is so hard to find here, I was definitely obsessed for the first few months after I found aarinfantasy. I believe most people “mellow” after a while and go back to their normal lives ^^

    I don’t mind reading those “not so normal” sub-genres within BL occasionally or those that are just pure smut :P but generally I still prefer BL with good stories and characters.

    Keroro Gunso is superb! xD I love it too! I don’t have a lot of time to watch all the episodes tho.

  5. Just becoz somebody likes BL that doesn’t mean they have a sad pathetic social life.
    I know there are many crazy BL lovers out there but there are lots of normal BL fans too

    So far knowing some of your BL collections..i see you as a normal fan.
    (Trust me, i know somebody who isn’t normal BL fan)

    I didn’t collect much anime/manga merchandise mainly because i’m a shoe-aholic :)

    No more Saiyuki animation for me, i’d rather read the manga…
    My cable TV subscriptions’ expired, i haven’t atch ANIMAX and AXN for awhile
    Last animation i watched is Keroro Gunso, i’m a fan :p

  6. Hehe no worries :D I enjoy general anime and manga too and I just happen to like BL very much LOL~ I’m glad you’re not judgmental tho’ cos I’m pretty much a closet fan when in comes to real life o.O I can easily chat with friends and family about general anime but BL stuff, well… *shrug* so this blog is an outlet I guess. *sweatdrop*

    Yep, good stories and characters are hard to come by, whether in BL or other genres :)

    I watched Gensomaden Saiyuki anime but later found its animation quite repetitive after a while so I didn’t enjoy it as much. Ah~ have you watched Damekko Dobutsu? (Useless Animals) The anime is VERY cute and funny. Morikawa Toshiyuki voices a unicorn in it. Its not BL in case you’re wondering hehe… Anyway, he is one of my favourite seiyuus too ^^

  7. Confession:

    i’m actually not BL fan…i like BL with good story and characters.
    It’s mostly related to my job but i don’t wanna judge people becoz they like BL and collect BL stuffs.
    besides, i like Asami and Kazutaka Muraki (Yami no Matsuei), how can i deny the attraction of BL itself? LOL

    I know Morikawa Toshiyuki from Gensomaden Saiyuki anime.
    He voiced for Homura (Gensomaden Saiyuki 2nd season).
    Really cool…next to Koyasu Takehito of course.

  8. *heart* Morikawa Toshiyuki!!! x3

    Have you watched the anime? Your friend is also a fan? hehe :D Yea, the customs here made things difficult and I was really upset but decided to send my package back unopened so that I can get a full refund. Amazon Japan service was very good and they did refund everything. After that I sort of gave up until I found other online shops that could send via other shipping methods that wouldn’t kick up a fuss at the customs :)

    I want to get the stuff I really like if I can afford it. BL stuff are not readily available here and I only discovered these online shops recently… and that’s when the blood-letting began O.o so far, I’ve bought BL Drama CDs, manga, artbook, DVDs, figurines… I’m tempted to buy games too but I don’t have much time to play games. So I figured I shouldn’t waste the money. I guess BL is a really expensive hobby if you want to own the real thing :P Have to save like mad. $ is so limited ah… T-T

  9. A-ha! Morikawa Toshiyuki…

    Seems like a long way to buy the DVDs (OVA) hee hee
    Anyway thanks for the info, will let y friend know about it.
    Do you usually order BL merchandise too?
