somebody responded to us posting that emma watson is a clueless activist with this
and i’m just like… yeah because emma watson was born to rich parents and got sent to a freaking private boarding school in oxford and getting tutored in drama from a very young age, and landed a role in a very visible movie franchise .
like… both people who work on this blog are lower middle class at absolute best. if i had a rich mummy and daddy that sent me to rich people school and paid for a better education then maybe i would be a some kind of ambassador that makes speeches that don’t say anything as well, but instead i’m just a local activist who tries to support people in the best way she can with the resources she has.
for what it’s worth i’m from roughly the same geographic area as emma and i’m just like… maybe if i was a rich pretty cis girl i could work for the UN in promoting equality in an ineffective way too, but instead i’m working class, transgender and finding it hard to even get a job as a shitty position in the same city she went to school, all because we both played the cards we got dealt and she happened to have all aces.
I get so mellow on cloudy/rainy days and nothing is more low key and cozy than overalls. These are my favorite pair and I got them a couple years ago in Paris, France. Overalls usually come with a ton of pockets so no need for a bag. We are going for a mega minimalist look.
I love pairing overalls with a turtleneck because it’s an instant look that allows both pieces to stand out. The contrast of the yellow and black colors brings more life and dimension to this super basic outfit. Hoops or statement earrings can glam up the conservative style of a turtleneck and add a girly touch to the boyish silhouette of these overalls. + white adidas for a clean swaggy feel to bring the look home!
Today we are done with this store-exclusive nightmare and the blog will be able to move on to more interesting stuff, thankfully. I’m ready to say goodbye to Kousaka from the marketing team.
On Furuhon Ichiba (the second-hand book market), you could get your self this A5 binder with Monokuma, Monosuke, Monokid, Chabashira, Yumeno and Yonaga. This design was not shown in the official site yet.
The pages inside also look really good, with a pixel art of Monokuma wearing Yumeno’s hat.
If you’re one of those people who think “This is too pretty, it would be a waste to use it”, Kousaka recommends buying 2 of them. One for preservation and one for use.
Yamada Denki (Yamada Electronics) offers you this notepad fitted to look like a student ID. It has Saishuu’s badge on it.
The ones responsible for the English “Academy for Gifted Prisoners” name were the localizers for the English version. The word “Prisoner” could mislead you into thinking they are criminals (it sure did and I had a hard time fighting against this misconception in the other website) but it prisoner in the simplest meaning of the word (someone imprisoned). The story starts at a point where these students were one day suddenly confined here out of nowhere. Kousaka teases that there might more to it than just that and tells us to look forward to figure out why they
Yodobashi Camera has this A4 clear file with all the bears and girls in pixel art.
They also made another version with the pixel arts for the boys during productions, but decided this one would sell more. In both versions, Monokuma is huge and not pixelated. Kousaka likes it makes Monokuma feel like a game master.
Rakuten Books gives this special gift card that only works on Rakuten Books, Rakuten Supermarket and other stores of the Rakuten chain. Definitely a store choice I wouldn’t recommend to a western.
Kousaka comments that the title “Super High School Level Detective” reminds them of a certain partner girl who would always be pulling the protagonist together, but as Saihara has his horrible self-esteem and Akamatsu is the positive cheerful one, it seems like she will be the one pulling the detective together this time around.
Loppi・HMV has a special set with an A4 clear file, a tin badge and a Monokuma tote bag.
All Monokumas in this bag are the V3 version, which is slightly fatter than the old version. There are quite a few different Monokuma sprites here, but don’t worry because he has even more diffferent poses in the actual game.
WonderGOO’s wonderful good is this multipouch with Monokuma on one side and Monofunny, Shirogane and Toujou on the other. The size is 22x22x0.5cm open and 11x22x1cm closed, so I guess you can fit your Vita on it.
Shirogane and Toujou were chosen to be put together because both have a serious, respectable, adult image to them.
To end this store-exclusive hell, Kousaka finally presents the one I (and probably most of the westerners buying the Japanese game) am getting: PS Store digital download preorder (note: Kousaka misspelled “download” as “dowloadload”).
I’m getting this set of 22 different PSN avatars.
But these pixel arts of all character are not all: digital preorders can dowloadload the game January 12th 0:00 instead of having to wait until the 17th like the rest of the digital buyers. This one might maybe possibly have surprising plot twist from the start (maybe), so the earlier you play the better. That’s what this quote is about. But that’s potentialy just a possibility. Maybe. Perhaps.
Anyways, now we’re done with this store-exclusive mess and Suzuki can finally get his blog back. Bye, Kousaka.
