It's that time of year again where we buy ourselves new calendars so that the next year doesn't become an unorganised chaos...or something like that. Unfortunately (in terms of excitment, anticipaction etc.), I'm no different from most of the male population in that having twelve different pictures of a pretty lady on the wall for the year seems like a perfect way to brighten up a dingy games den/dungeon/pit (delete as applicable). This year -like the last 3 or 4 years actually - I've gone for this lovely lady:
Anyway, as you can tell from the post title, this is about an altogether different calendar and one that I've gone back in time to bring to everybody's attention: a 2004 Castlevania calendar. Those who have been stopping by this fairly insignificant corner of the internet for while may remember my photos of the Japanese Castlevania: Lament of Innocence PS2 special edition. Sadly, the time has come to let this set go but I've decided to scan in all of the calendar cards before then since a) I promised to do this 'at some point' in that original post and b) the artwork on them is absolutely amazing. Ayami Kojima has worked on several Castlevania games when it comes to the artwork and I think that her Lament of Innocence art is some of her best. If this was available in an A3 2012 calendar form then you can bet that Avril would have serious competition for the spot on my wall. Perhaps.
Without further ado, here's the goods:
So which one is your favourite? I'm quite partial to May, October and November myself but that's just me.
P.S. I can only apologise for any crap scanning or related faults that anybody picks up on. I'm not a pro at this sort of thing nor do I have the up-to-date equipment to even try!
