This is not actually a significant unboxing (though I do plan to do those sometimes in the future), but I’m very happy to have finally gotten my Amnesia DVD and the new manga I’m planning to collect!

First of all, the manga! 1043cca3a2631f1c84f38bd98331491d9b91820105d413a28b0522d3194fe59a

This is the Italian version of Demon Prince of Momochi House ( Momochi-san Chi no Ayakashi Ouji; 百千さん家のあやかし王子 ), shoujo manga by Aya Shouto. She’s also known for titles like He’s my only Vampire and Kiss of Rose Princess. The main reason why I thought you guys would be interested to see this is because all (or almost) of Aya Shouto‘s mangas are reverse harems (or have very obvious elements of it). Demon Prince of Momochi House is not much different, however, like He’s my only Vampire, we pretty much get to know who the canon pairing is from the very first few pages.

Synopsis: On her sixteenth birthday, orphan Himari Momochi inherits her ancestral estate that she’s never seen. Momochi House exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms, and Himari is meant to act as guardian between the two worlds. But on the day she moves in, she finds three handsome squatters already living in the house, and one seems to have already taken over her role!

Aya Shouto‘s art also happens to be simply gorgeous, so I tend to buy her stuff no matter what the story is because I simply love to even just stare at the pictures. lol

And now the DVD! Now, you know that only typing Amnesia on my blog will probably come out with a lot of posts regarding it so it’s obvious that I’m a big Amnesia fan. While the anime didn’t manage to stand up next to its otome game counterpart, I really wanted to have it! (Sorry for the flash, it was already dark outside when I got them…)

 

This is the UK version and it’s really a simple DVD case, no fancy box, no freebies, nothing and really, the only feeling of having it makes up for the simpleness. What made me gasp, though, is inside…

I knew that the DVDs wouldn’t be just simple-white, but I thought they would have the logo on it and that’s all. I was surprised to see Shin and Ikki staring back at me instead and behind them there’s this pretty picture of heroine and Orion.

I swear I will one day buy an Amnesia artbook!  Like Aya Shouto‘s drawings, Amnesia artsyle has something that draws me in.

The DVD has both Japanese and English audio with English subs. The English dub is not exactly horrible, but I wish I could un-hear most parts of it…Especially Toma’s voice…

Now off I go to marathon Amnesia anime again! Have a nice weekend!

  1. I’ve been meaning to read Demon Prince of Momochi House for a while, I think it has 2 volumes? Or am I wrong?
    I haven’t seen amnesia but I’m wondering if you recommend watching or playing the otome game first? Plus those CDs look so pretty, the art.
    A reason I always spend SO long reading manga is because I end up staring at the art too long haha.

    • There are 3 volumes out in Italy for now but I assume it’s still publishing. 🙂

      I actually recommend the otome game first. The anime isn’t exactly hard to get into when you have no idea of the game, but it’s hard to actually go through it because of the heroine. Amnesia’s peculiarity is that the heroine has no default name (or if she does, then the guys don’t call her by her name anyway) and the anime follows that as well, “the nameless heroine”. It’s hard to find her likable in the anime because she has no personality, while in the game she doesn’t speak at all till the end of each route, but you can choose the way that you want to interact with others, if you want to trust them or not. I am of the opinion that the anime tried to be appealing to a variety of people, but it failed to convey the heroine’s point of view. But if you go in exclusively for the guys, then it’s good. Their stories are not complete, but you can get an idea and it’s nice to look at them XD

      Hahaha omg, same here !

    • I would say yes and no. XD The feeling is similar, but it kind of lacks the comedic element that Kamisama Kiss had, the fox guy is pretty much the opposite of Tomoe and his is a curse rather than willingly acting guardian of the house. The heroine is kind of similar to Nanami from Kamisama Kiss though, but cuter. What it’s clear though is that their relationship doesn’t get dragged to infinity like in Kamisama Kiss when they didn’t want to just hook up till chapter 100+ or something XDDD So from that point of view it’s nice. Oh it has a bit of InuxBoku feeling to it too.
