|Shocktress as Astaroth|
I am an avid lover of art as you can tell my my original artwork site - Green Dragons Den. I love the styles and variety of how people vision things. I used to collect Hildebrant Brothers (still have their Marvel Masterpieces series) and Queens Blade cards, but sold them I still however have my Masamune Shirow collections (hard to give up). It seems my tastes change over time and I sell and collect cards on a whim.
But this series is one that not only wets your appetite for cool cards, but also fills the tummy too. I could go into an explanation of this series, but honestly that has already been done. Check out Shinra Bansho World blog for all the fine details as they have done a spectacular job. I will say that this has been running since 2005 and they release about 4 volumes a year (give or take). It is interesting as they release them the same month and around the same dates.For such an obscure series not to be known in the United States, it is doing extremely well in Japan. Must be the fact that it is not franchised to death like other card series.
Here is a couple shots of the outside packaging and what you will find inside.:
Here are some other shots of cards from the series:
If you have some time to kill, check out the anime short based on the series. It is only in Japanese, but the animation is awesome.
If anyone has some laying around they want to get rid of, let me know as I may be interested in them!
