Rants on Kalafina Live BD/DVD cover

Before I spilled out all the rants, I better first promote the first live DVD/Bluray release of Kalafina.

Kalafina LIVE 2010 “Red Moon”at JCB HALL
~Kajiura Produce 3rd Anniversary LIVE TOUR~

Release Date: December 1, 2010

Kalafina Live BDCover of DVD version, Bluray version is mostly similar, albeit wider.

The first time I saw this cover, I immediately dislike the photos used. The girls looked horrible. Uncomfortable angle, unfitting moment, bad photo toning (Hikaru is natural, Keiko is reddish, and Wakana is bluish). Instead of using these three photos cropped and combined into one, why not just used a photo which had all three of them in it? And then the layout. Fonts used were the same as in the pamphlet, as if it was just copy-pasted from the old file. The only new thing on the cover is the frame, I guess.

While I ranted a lot about the cover, I can only hope the content is great. Hong Kong Documentary will surely make me agonizing from the fact that I arrived there so late during my China Tour on August, dammit.

    LOL!! The WB is totally off the “alternative” cover.

    Hmm….the classic “lack of quality” argument in the digital age….

    Yeah I hate to admit it but, that’s the way things are these days. Not like many many years ago (when we all still listened to cassette tapes and vinyls) and people actually made the effort (without the use of Photoshop or whathaveyou) to design beautiful album covers that indicated what sort of quality are you getting with the package inside.

    So much for progress…┐( ̄ー ̄)┌
