Leaflet (Program director’s notes)
A pity this is a DVD-only release. I was hoping for blu-ray fufu~ But still, I feel this is a must-keep for Takki fans, kinda similar to the J’s Journey he did years ago. This DVD currently ranks no.1 on the sales chart of Amazon’s DVD documentary section, and the jacket/cover hasn’t been revealed yet. I’ll update again if it’s revealed ne~ [Updated 8 Oct 2018: The jacket has been released, and I’ve added it above!]
