Ganbare Est-chan! School Calendar 2008-2009

Post by Rubel Colus » Sat Dec 08, 2007 2:03 pm

NT Jan 2008 - as usual includes a calendar, and as usual one of the illust is by Nagano - Atropos & Suezou.

--------------------------------
but the more interesting scoop is...
http://www.korder.com/pickup.asp?html=i ... l&path=fss
it says new item coming up: big sized item.

Seems like there's gonna be a FSS poster sized calendar coming up.

"Ganbare Est-chan! School Calendar 2008-2009"
size: 350mm x 600mm approx
tentatively Early March 2008
Price: 1500yen + shipping 500yen
14 pages wall mountable poster sized illust w/ text

The previous School Designs which was released earlier this year will be up for re-sale. Price is 1200yen but if ordered with this new item, price will be reduced to 900yen.


there were more details to the illust line-up but i'd list it after confirmation.

Thanks for keeping us posted. I plan to get a new scanner early next year. Maybe some scans of this new material will be in order. I'll watch this topic for developments.

As mentioned, the update is in-line with the upcoming poster-sized EST calendar. It will include illustrations of Est dressed in uniforms of the various countries that she's been to.

The 14(13?) illusts include:

Bakin Rakan: Kensei suit
Black Knight: Black suit
Meyoyo Court: Temple knights suit (decadent suit?)
Astro City: Fatima suit
Bahtgma: Plastic suit
Meeth mansion: Current suit

AKD: Grees school uniform (September as shown above)
Fillmore Empire: Emperor suit

.....& ???

Pre-order starts now, product to be released in early March 2008. Limited release.

http://www.korder.com/pickup.asp?html=i ... l&path=fss

Unfortunately, korder seems to only accept local japanese orders.

I will be ordering very soon, so those from the little red dot who really wants it badly maybe we can try to work something out. Total costs involved to get it to the little red dot is still not known (due to shipping costs etc). If u're from the red dot & not fussy, then we can discuss via email.

Well, we've always complained about how slow Nagano can be...

hahah... maybe it is japanese culture? not sure.

but this is not the first time he came up with a "school" calendar. School calendar starts from April to March of the next year, probably is a full year for schools?

Now the thing about this calendar is the huge size! Seems like I can only use EMS to get it here, but i can't send from here to a foreign country (to Taiwan) due to the local mail-size restrictions. >_<"

i received my EST calendar a few days ago. its huge. :twisted:

total of 13 new pictures of EST and some description for each pic.

Apr 2008 - Baltic Academy:2876, Orange Suit (Basic Style)
May 2008 - Black Knight suit: 2900~, Black Suit (Basic Style)
Jun 2008 - HolyLand Bakkin Rakkan: 2900~, Hyper Chevalier Suit
Jul 2008 - Mejojo Empire: 2992, Kinshin Crimson Suit
Aug 2008 - Amaterasu Kingdom: 3070?, Amaterasu Family's Pareo (beach wear)
Sep 2008 - Amaterasu Kingdom: 3070?, Greens Royal High School uniform
Oct 2008 - Laboratory of Meath Silver Ballanche/ Natrium Xing Sakurako: 3035~, Service Wear Suit (Current Suit)
Nov 2008 - Izumo Astro City: 3069, Space use Plastic Suit
Dec 2008 - Unknown since 3070, Christmas dressed Suit
Jan 2009 - Son of SUNN Kingdom: year unknown, "The BLUE BLACK Suit"
Feb 2009 - Empire Fillmore: 3230~, Imperial Peacock Suit
Mar 2009 - Trio de Colus: 3960, Princess Suit (same picture as cover)

last picture is AD Century Imperial Queen of Kastepo/ EST / Princess Loretta Randers Barranca, Prophet Black Dress

Nagano explains that EST was designed based on L-Gaim Gaw-Ha-Lecce, and Princess Yarn Kastepo based on EST + Lecce, and finally Loretta (4100) is based on the other 3.


Nothing much new info. the "blue black suit", Nagano hints that for fans who follows the updates will probably be able to guess her master at this time. i guess maybe EST became Black Prince's fatima? Also since EST is in Izumo going to AKD at 3069, does it mean 3rd Black Knight Decors is dead by 3069?

of all the pics, i like the space PS, blue suit, crimson suit, and Prophet black dress.

bonus gifts were 2 transparent bookmarks with EST pics (which i like alot), and a sheet of stickers.
