To start off the packaging for this release as is with the other 2 is absolutely gorgeous! The first 2 items that you see are a Christmas themed DVD (the age of VHS has finally passed at this point!) which is beautifully picture labeled with every member and an cute miniature artificial Christmas tree! The tree comes complete with ornaments, bells, tiny decorative presents, and little poinsettia flowers and all that's missing are Morning Musume member ornaments which are also included!! Perhaps one day I'll actually hang their ornaments on the tree but as of now every thing's been preserved. The members included in this lineup are Aichan, Yossi, Kamei, Aibon, Nacchi, Sayu, Mikitty, Tanakachi, Rikachan, Nono, Gakisan, Marippe, Makochan, Kaorin, & Konkon! And with so many members the DVD is quite extensive as well and includes Christmas messages from each member along with a lot of holiday joy. 🙂 The packaging is quite ingenious as the rest of the goodies are hidden underneath the cardboard inserts.
Also included is a Morning Musume year planner along with a sticker sheet. The planner is filled with tons of member photos and also includes a notepad section.
Here's a better look at the miniature Morning Musume Christmas tree which sits in a cute little stand along with a 2 sided glossy fold out sheet which includes the member ornaments and Christmas card with member messages. But perhaps the most personalized item that's included in this box set…
…is the great Christmas plate that bears the art from every member in this current lineup! Next to the little stars are each member's name above their Christmas drawings & messages. Sorry that this image has been obscured by the camera's flash as my room's not lit to well. Each member's individual personality is well represented in these drawings and the plate itself is very well made. Would make a nice decorative piece that could be displayed upon a stand at Christmas time or perhaps year round. 🙂
