Get this stuff out the door!
You might have noticed that I haven’t been updating here as frequently as in the past, that’s because I’ve been readying Studio Happy Chicken’s next set of releases, the Happy Chicken Pink Box, Happy Chicken Blue Box, and the Samurai Boys 3-way Blu-ray.
These are important releases for Studio Happy Chicken because they represent the end of our past releases as we focus on the future. We’ve ceased production of our titles Sundae Girl, Ayaka is your Angel, Thai Relax, and Les Gamins on DVD. Now, they’ll only be available through the Happy Chicken Pink Box set, which is pretty spiffy, if I do say so myself. If you’re looking to get these original titles in their original release packaging, you’d better hurry because once they’ve sold out, that’s it. I’ve always loved the Sundae Girl packaging; it came hard bound with a 16-page full color art book. You don’t see attention paid to packaging like that very often, and I can tell you why: it’s expensive! As you may or may not know, all our Happy Chicken Pink releases include a mini poster on the reverse side of the DVD jacket, so if you don’t have an original release, you’ll never get the poster. Let’s take a look at what will be available very shortly:
The Happy Chicken Pink Box features four of our premium gravure titles in one nifty, glossy package. Inside this keepsake box you’ll find four films, Sundae Girl, Ayaka is Your Angel, Thai Relax, and Les Gamins. Opening the box reveals a gatefold featuring photos of Natsuki Kojima and Ayaka Uchiyama, and opening that gatefold exposes pictures of Risa Hashimoto and Naomi Ishikawa as well as the four disks nestled in sturdy, clear DVD trays.
The Happy Chicken Blue Box is similar to the Pink Box, but features four films released under the Happy Chicken Blue label. These include @Home Idol as well as the Chaku-ero Super Sexy Oriental Gal series, volumes 1 -3. The gatefold here features Happy Chicken Girl Moe Takahashi along with Rion Hatsune, while in inside photos are of Yuna Majikina and Miku.
Both sets retail for $34.95, which means you should be able to get them for less at online retailers such as Amazon.com and Best Buy.
I’m also pleased to announce a new printing of two of our most hard to get titles, @Home Idol: Moe Takahashi on DVD and Blu-ray Disk as well as Studio Happy Chicken Girls on Blu-ray. That means fans won’t have to pay upwards of the $115 people have been asking for them on Amazon. Both releases have had little tweaks to their packaging that differentiate them from the original versions. @Home Idol has a new cover entirely, and Happy Chicken Girls now actually says “Studio Happy Chicken Girls” on the cover. The Japanese title for the release was 0425208863(24h).
So it’s back to work for me, finalizing this shipment and getting it out the door. I’ll get back to regular posts shortly… I actually have a backlog of interesting Japanese stuff and retro gaming this and that to talk about, along with more classic video game magazine scans and even more HardOffing. Thanks so much for keeping interested and checking back here. And as always… buy our movies!
