In a fitting way to say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014, my last blog entry of this year will be a photo-review of three of the four Petit Jeuness Calendars for 2014. This was my first calendar order and wasn't sure what to expect, but these large-format calendars bring to life the wonderful illustrations of Tony Taka, Coffee Kizoku, and Kantoku.

The first two calendars below are "portrait" mode, while the Kantoku calendar is situated in a "landscape" format -- this explains the high shipping costs many of us incurred for the Kantoku calendar...it was quite a bit for me! In selecting my favorite calendar overall, I would choose Coffee Kizoku because I simply love his style which seems to set him apart from all other eshi (illustrators). But in all honesty, each of these calendars are stunning in their own right.

Here are my favorite illustrations from each calendar:

Which calendar is your favorite of the three?

Do you have a favorite illustration from a particular month?

OK, enough writing...on to the illustrations!

June is properly my pick with the Tony Taka one.
However, I do prefer the designs and selections for the 2013 calendar in comparison to the new 2014 one.


Totally agree

I'd love to get my hands on the 2013 Tony Calendar, if only for the full-size Daisy picture.

Chloe-tsundere6年前#1911835Amiami and calendars, heard bad stories about thrm overcharging.. So be prepared
I ordered my tony calendar from hobbysearch and paid about 1200 for reg sal

Its not so much overcharging as they're not making any profit from shipping according to the shipping documents I check. I think its more that sometimes they aren't packing the calendars efficiently. They put them in an assembled box and pack it with paper. The bookstore I ordered from just put the calendar in a flat box and taped up the edges. However, I don't know how it was shipped over.

I guess it also depends on the size of the calendar. I have a few huge wall calendars, so those could fall under the irregular size shipping which small packet doesn't fall under.
