Scans, Drama DL Links, requests and shopping!  
(Long post is long so post is under the cut!)

Greetings! It's been a while since I've posted here though I'm sure to check often. I would like to start this off by requesting (and seconding beldarius' request from earlier) if anyone has the time or is bothered enough to provide even short little summaries for the angelique gaiden (アンジェリーク 外伝) series (there are four different gaidens with four volumes each), I would be very grateful as I am still learning Japanese and while I understand situational and some general things, some plot/story line things fly over my head. I know that the first volume is about the danger from a planet that threatens sanctuary, the second is about the "darkness" that crept into everyone's hearts and the struggle from that (same as in the manga when rosalia is affected first from a necklace?), the third gaiden is about the knights who "possess" the guardians, and the fourth... I don't have a clue because I haven't listened to it yet... Is it weird if I say I didn't want it to end so I just never touched it all these years? I loved all three gaidens before that and was really excited to start this one but the thought just broke my heart so much I just never managed to do it. Ahh, it might be weird but I use the Ange series for when I'm really down? It always makes me feel like everything is alright, so I rarely touch it except when I "need" it, it calms me down. Despite the gaidens having really sad parts sometimes... Lumiale in the first one killed me. The others I learnt what to expect but man, when it's sad it's s a d.

Second, I have gathered the CD's released for Angelique from various sources over the years for your convenience* below and have my own requests if anyone would like to help me complete the digital collection, as I would like to help you complete anything you're missing by providing these.
* some of these I probably got from this very lj page, thus if you find something of yours that I've re-uploaded and that you'd like me to take down, please let me know! I just want for there to be one updated source with everything gathered in one place. There are too many CD's to go through individually and find the sources for, especially since I haven't been through them for a while now. I've gotten the physical cd's for many of these over the years so I can just re-upload my own copies, so again please let me know.

Shopping for Angelique Merchandise/Goods:

This is just based on my experiences with these services (which have been great so far) and I thought I'd share for anyone interested or has ever wondered about sources/services and such. Anyone can add their own sources/experiences too!

I'm still in the process of building up my Ange collection but I would recommend for anyone interested in getting physical copies of the goods, I've found that using a proxy like j-shoppers or tenso and using a website like amazon.co.jp or, my personal preference netoff.co.jp saves you a lot of hassle plus you can find very reasonably priced angelique games, manga, magazines, novels, drama and music cd's, and if you don't mind getting them used then you can find them even cheaper (and they're almost always in excellent condition).

It is also worth noting that I live a considerable distance from Japan and sometimes don't even get shipment tracking sometimes yet shipping is almost as fast blinking, doesn't matter if it's standard international shipping or EMS or SAL, it's usually quite fast which is very pleasant.

Lastly, here are some scans of the cute little "our present" book. (My scanner is a bit broken so please excuse bad scans. Also click to enlarge or open in new window.)

Wow, thank you for all those albums; that's a very helpful post. I'm sure a lot of folks out there appreciate you offering & consolidating all this. (I will also thank you for the scans of Our Present; I've always wanted to read that!)

I don't know of any summaries of the Gaiden offhand. I've actually had a summary of Gaiden 1 that's been languishing at three-quarters done; I need to finish it finally - I've just got so much going on. It really is a good story; it's from relatively early in the series, so it goes places that you wouldn't expect an Angelique story to go. (Ana...! Clavis at the end! And, of course, Lumi.) I agree with you that it's a real heartbreaker.

I've never listened to the fourth drama CD series, either. I understand it focuses on Timka? That's interesting; he seems rather underdeveloped in the show (despite having a lot going on what with being a prince/king & whatnot), so giving him the spotlight seems like an interesting choice. I haven't listened to the second Gaiden yet, though I know it's a favorite among those who have. The third I find interesting, given it has the Guardian and the Knight Captains, but I also find it kind of a mess for the same reason - it's just juggling too many characters. (It does have, though, Marcel's seiyuu giving a great turn as Giovanni. He doesn't get to have much range as Marcel, so it's great to hear him turn loose here.)

While we're on the subject of shopping, I'll put in a word for doujin: Suruga-Ya seems to be the best place for doujinshi on the market. I've also had luck with Yahoo Shopping (everyone seems to go for Yahoo Auctions, and this gets overlooked). I also have had largely good experiences with Tenso.com/Buyee. (I used to use Shopping Mall Japan as a deputy service, and they were very good, but their fees are rather high compared to the alternatives right now.)

(Note: I tried fixing the lj-cut, but genius LiveJournal won't let me. You don't have to; I just noted it was there & broken in the post.)

Don't thank me at all, again most of those I found here in the community, all I did was put them in one place for convenience. You're very welcome for the scans! It's such a cute little book, I've wanted to share it on here for ages but my scanner was being dumb but I thought the hell with it, since they're mostly intact I'll post 'em anyway. (You might notice the bottom of each scan if I haven't cropped them out they kind of drag down, like the one with Chupi who looks like he's being dragged down to hell orz. Poor Chupi.)

That's great, I can't wait to read your summary of Gaiden 1! No rush at all obviously, I just love all your posts and always look forward to reading them. I know what you mean, life get's in the way a lot of the time. Also yes, heartbreak city that one...

Knowing that focuses on Timka actually makes sense in terms of the cover art actually, puts it a bit into perspective. Just knowing that much is helpful, thank you! In terms of favorites, the second is definitely special. Really though I couldn't choose between them, they're all really precious and each have their moments that just make it all an awesome experience. Back when I first got my driver's license there was a lot of drama at home so I just drove around for hours, and listening to these were really a great distraction plus solidified my love for the cast and stories and just... This is a really great series haha. But yes, Marcel's VA as Giovanni was really interesting and entertaining.

Thank you very much for the shopping recommendations! I'll be sure to check these out soon, I believe I have used tenso at one point too and they were good. Yeah, my only issue with shopping is having to use a service that inevitably ends up charging quite a bit. Some are better than others but ultimately shipping is a pain anywhere in the world probably.

(I just noticed the lj-cut thing, thank you for trying! Silly mistake but fixed it now.)

Oh, this is amazing! Thank you for compiling all those CDs, now it's going to be easier to find what I need~

I'm still trying to make sense of the Sweet Tenshi CD myself, like why Randy is depressed over Rosalia. XD

As for places to buy stuff, I don't really own all that much Angelique merchandise myself. Lack of space and money. ...Though whenever I do want something, I tend to use YesAsia for the most part, with CDJapan, AmiAmi and Play-Asia as secondary choices. I think I got my Angelique Retour game and Angelique Vocal Complete Box from YesAsia, actually...

You're very welcome! Again all credit goes to the wonderful members of angemedia for providing them in the first place.

True, although that was the funniest thing (Randy being depressed over Rosalia) and Marcel's reaction to him and Zephel's little squabble was equally funny.

I feel ya, CDJapan is also awesome! AmiAmi is great but they're out of stock so often and you need to rush to get the stuff and it just makes me mad seeing stuff out of stock all the time haha. But when you actually do manage to get an order in, they're great. I haven't tried YesAsia though, will try 'em next time. As for Play-Asia I've had a few issues just for verification and the like where things got too complicated, but they have good customer service so I would recommend trying them out still for others.

Thank you so much for posting this! I have been getting back into Angelique since February when I re watched the Neo Angelique anime and found a way to play Retour. These albums will be wonderful to listen to amidst my Angelique revival. Now to hunt down some lyrics!

The book is just adorable, too.

Angelique is good "comfort food," isn't it? I was going through some stuff when I started playing Retour and the game has been a real refuge from the real life angst and uncertainty.

Thanks also for the shopping advice on this thread! I am now happily anticipating several nice orders of things I never thought I'd ever get. I have found a lot of the books, CDs and games from eBay and Amazon, actually. Amazon has quite a lot, and the prices are usually better than eBay. I got the first twenty three Love Love Tsuushin issues on Amazon. There is so much more out there to covet, though!

tsuiitsuii on August 3rd, 2016 03:23 pm (UTC)
You're very welcome! Retour is still on my backlog of games but I find my hand itching and it gets bumped up the priority list every time (despite my wanting to save it up as a special treat sort of thing heh). Are you enjoying it? Good luck on the lyric hunt!

It is incredible comfort food, a perfect descriptor. I know exactly what you mean, and I hope you feel a lot better.

No problem! This lj has been so helpful in everything regarding to the neoromance series, I'd have been so lost without it when I first started getting into the series. Amazon JP is a superb source, I'd say most of my collection comes from there. Enjoy your order!
JolineD: Neo Angelique- Nyx & Angesiriusstar on August 4th, 2016 08:14 am (UTC)
Thanks. :) I will post scans or at least a few pictures of the the Retour Character Book and the Happy Kuiji short story book, for sure.

I am really enjoying Retour. I translate slowly, but have managed to finish five paths. (Lumiale, Clavis, Olivie, Brian & Julious so far.) Love them all! (The dances! The gift events! Olivie the bad wolf! Dancing with Lumiale!) I probably could have taken or left Gerard and Silvan, but their story is interesting enough. It is just shamelessly good fun to play.

I see what you mean about wanting to save it for just the right time, though. It'll probably be awhile before I have the heart to finish all the paths. Though Lumiale is the only one I have seen all 29 special scenes for. Somehow I'm missing one scene each from the others... I figure it gives another reason to keep playing!

Hello, thank you so much dear! Also I'm really sorry for the super late reply, I need to get e-mail forwarding onto my main account. I've fixed the link now, it should work fine. Let me know if you have any trouble, I should reply faster this time! x

Thank you very much! I sent you a message through LJ to your tsuii account so you might want to check that out later ;)

Angelique Retour
I've been looking for the theme song (opening cinematic song from the game) for Angelique retour everywhere. Do you know where I can find it? :)
tsuiitsuii on November 11th, 2016 09:15 pm (UTC)
Re: Angelique Retour
Hello, I'm sorry I don't know where you could find it but I will try to rip it from my copy, I'm not sure about the exact method but I did read about it once so I'll attempt it once I have a bit of time to work on that. (Along with ripping CG'S, BGM's and so on). This might take a while though. I'll update this page as often as I can.
