【saitom】A collection of bonuses for ‘DF.’

I’m surprised there are quite a few bonuses coming with Doujinshi; sometimes different stores have different rewards, sometimes they’re exclusive for a venue, and other time you’ll be required to buy it together with its doujinshi.

I’ve been collecting saitom goods since C95, and to be more precise, greatly influenced by Xenoblade Chronicles 2. So I decided to write a post about what you can get from ‘DF’ purchase.

For those interested in saitom like me, this post goes into detail about the related items.

What is ‘DF’?

This is an full-colored art work collection featuring demon girls drawn by Master saitom. A bunch of chicks who are sexy, stylish, lovelily girlish will entice you in a fashionable way.

‘DF’ is the Doujinshi newly distributed by saitom at C95, which took place on December 31, 2018. You can buy it for 1,300 yen at various shops, regardless of online or physical; A4-sized and 24 pages in all.

Speaking of Doujinshi, they may remind many of you of porn manga. This one, however, is an illustration works that are based on what saitom uploaded on say, Twitter, not giving any X-rated contents.  There’s admittedly something explicit, and yet only about where some nipples are visible.

So you’re allowed to buy one if you’re minors.

 

Shop exclusive

The bonuses vary from shop to shop.

 

TORANOANA

When you order one on TORANOANA, it comes with a pair of bromide photographs based on DF illustrations.

How it’s sealed inside.

 

TORANOANA exclusive B2 tapestry set

They have a combination of tapestry and DF available that is 4,104 yen. To get the item, you’ll have to buy it together with DF, hence the high price.

Unfortunately, it’s no longer available.

 

It’s been quite long since the launch date, so it’s already out of stock. It’s up to you whether you push the EXpect a RESELL button or go on Auction or to secondhand shops.

Mine. Btw, this chick represented Neko-maru shoten on the C95 catalog book. (Here’s a review)

 

Winning an auction

Some of you may wonder if it is ok to get doujinshi on Auction even though authors forbid anyone from selling them in the way. At a personal point of view, I always try to give a profit to creators so feel reluctant to win their doujinshi on Auction, but this is not the case with something rare that I can’t purchase any longer at stores.

Goods go bad soon, I mean, they are not available forever. Since you might place an order or learn the author too late, old items are prone to becoming elusive.

Only, in that case, I make the most of auction and secondhand shops. Of course, some people will not be pleased, but I’d say they won’t get that angry with those longing for their goods, given that they take good care of their fans.

So IMO you can use auction if you have to, while I don’t approve or disapprove.

 

Melonbooks

Melonbooks doesn’t offer a sealed bonus. Like TORANOANA, it has a tapestry set available at the same price: 4,104 yen.

Sill in stock.

 

Mine. It’s somewhat different from TORANOANA ver. in design.(Here’s a review

 

Keibunsha

You can get two postal cards sealed in DF.  No tapestry set is available there.

This chick appears on the card for Comitia as well.

 

COMIC ZIN

No rewards.

 

会場限定特典

As far as I know, saitom takes part in doujin conventions so often and intend bonuses for each venue.

(C95) Comic Market 95

He distributed a postcard-sized sticker and bromide photograph. One is based on DF and the other Bradamante from Fate Grand Order, for which he designed her.

As I said, they’re a sticker and bromide photo. DF girl feels smooth at the surface while Bradamante feels grainy.

Comitia

There was a distibution of two bromide cards. The girls are the same with TORANOANA and Keibunsha, but the designs are not.

The size is A6, the postcard-sized though called ‘Bromide.’

*The acrylic frame does not come together.

 

Uchu-chan

There was also a distribution, while it’s not a bonus, of acrylic figure featuring a girl from DF. The figure sold for 1,000 yen, a bit expensive in comparison with a commercial one, but still, I love it.

Lighting her up will make her cosmic hair look more beautiful.
