A Special Post!
You know it’s that time of the year again when 2012 calendars start sprouting up all over the web and online stores. Well, Ayu is very happy to share a peek of the newly released Pandora Hearts Comic Calendar for 2012 with fans of PH and the rest of the manga fandom. I received my copy of the calendar this week and love it. You’ll be pleased to know that Mochizuki-sensei added several new illustrations. Among those we’ve seen before are illustrations that appeared in the publications over the year and to me, they are still fairly new. Well then, I am sure everyone has their favourite month(s) that they would like to share with me. Want to know what’s mine? Find out after the cut!
PANDORA HEARTS COMIC CALENDAR 2012
The contents page is at the back of the calendar which I decided to put upfront so that you get the gist of what’s in the calendar proper.
Gil gets the cover spotlight this time round. Looking good there, Mister.
Let the months roll…
- New illustration for the first month of the new year that features the loveable trio of Reim, Break and Sharon
- Originally used as the cover for Retrace 55 and is one of my favourites of Break and Gil
- A new and bright illustration of Leo, one of the best illustration of Leo that I’ve seen. Is another one of my favourites from the calendar
- Colour spread of Retrace 59 featuring the shounen trio of Leo, Elliot and Oz in school uniforms
- An illustration that featured on the cover of GFantasy May issue of this year.
- The 4th new illustration from Mochizuki sensei and the cutest one out of the lot. It’s chibi Ada and shouta Gil.
- An artwork that is done for the 2nd special collectible poster. Love the all blue tones and colour scheme. One of my favourite group illustrations of Oz, Gil, Alice, Break and Sharon.
- I think Oz looks odd despite the happy, cheerful and sunny disposition that this new image portrays.
- I’m sure fans of Reim will be happy to add this to their Reim collection. It’s so rare to see an individual illustration of side characters. Well, Reim does have his fangirls.
- Mochizuki-sensei’s new artwork for October features the Baskerville girls. So pretty and cute too. It is one of my favourites from the calendar as well. Imo, by far the prettiest.
- The November artwork is also the featured pin-up pullout from the Aug issue of GFantasy. Very whimsical.
- Last but not least, the most recent illustration that featured as a colour spread of Retrace 63 aptly graces the month of December 2012. It’s the Chain masters and their servants. xD
If any of you are still interested in buying a copy of the PH calendar, it is still available to order at: cdjapan, yesasia and amazon.co.jp. They all shipped internationally.
Just so you know, I didn’t want to spoil the scans by adding watermarks on them as I expect you peeps to be respectably responsible beings. Anyway, enjoy the scans peeps.
You may use the images for graphical purposes but please do not claim them as your own and re-post them elsewhere. It would be pitiful if you do. You may, however, link to this post for reference.
