Biohazard: Walküre

Games: Playstation Releases [プレイステーションのゲーム]



The Sony PlayStation. One of the largest pioneers in the 32 bit era during the fifth generation of home consoles, the PlayStation came out of left field after a botched deal with Nintendo had Sony decide to go ahead with Ken Kutaragi’s console vision. Launching in Japan during 1994, and 1995 for the rest of the world, it saw a reign of 11 years officially before it was discontinued in 2005. It was the first home console to sell over 100 million units.

Soon after its release the console became home to this now-beloved franchise and paved the way for Survival Horror in full, leading to other great titles such as the Silent Hill series from Konami, and the continuation of Human Entertainment’s Clock Tower series. Biohazard overall saw 7 releases and enhanced editions over 5 years on the system, 14 including English localised versions, building a world and lore that is still heavily entrenched in even the most recent titles as of the time of writing.

Title: BIO HAZARD (バイオ ハザード) [PS01]
Catalogue: SLPS-00222
Released: 22/03/1996
Retail: 5,800円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Front | Back | Manual | Sample Page | Disc

Information:
The one, the only, the very beast that started it all and brought along with it a series that has lasted over 20 years. The original game is utterly iconic in the industry, and infamous in parts due to some questionable dialogue decisions, and paved the way for the series today. The original Japanese release has a number of differences when compared to the western releases, from minute things like auto aim to assist in the fixed camera setting, to different damage tables.

The Japanese release also began a trend of what is called True Canon, as localisation work of the series from here on out sometimes strayed a bit too far from the source material. Going back to this version of the game with Japanese knowledge under my belt was really eye-opening for the different tone and nuances in the text. I'm rather fond of this copy, I love how subtle and eerie the lab artwork is for the cover vs. Action Hero Chris Redfield on the western releases.




Title: BIOHAZARD Director’s Cut (バイオハザード ディレクターズカット) [PS02]
Catalogue: SLPS-00998
Released: 25/09/1997
Retail: 4,800円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Front | Back | Manual | Sample Page | Disc

Information:
Director's Cut, a game released to help bridge the gap between the release of Biohazard 2 and the original after 1.5 was canned 65% of the way in. Director's Cut brought about the uncut colour footage of the infamous live action opening, and saw the addition of an arrange mode which featured new outfits, new routes and enemy placements, and items being in totally new zones. Add into it some new camera angles and some other mechanical tweaking and you've got a fairly well rounded game.

Arrange mode is pretty awesome, and is a nice way of rehashing the game again with a new twist. It also came with a special preview trial disc for Biohazard 2, the first demo for the game ever publicly issued, and first demo since 1.5 was canned officially.




Title: BIOHAZARD 2 (バイオハザード2) [PS03]
Catalogue: SLPS-01222~3
Released: 29/01/1998

Information:
My absolute favourite game from the series, only just beating CODE: Veronica.

Title: Biohazard 5th Anniversary Special Package 'Nightmare Returns' (バイオハザード5周年記念スペシャルパッケージ「ナイトメア リターンズ」) [PS08]
Catalogue: SLPM-86770~3
Released: 22/03/2001
Retail: 28,000円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Case | Case Fold-Out | Disc 1 | Disc 2 | Disc 3 | Disc 4

Information:
07699/10000 -- the limited number my case has. Never thought I'd get a chance to own this, and yet here we are. Scored this via trawling Yahoo Japan during new years and the big clean outs that often happen as a result of the new year, and all due to the fact it has a small hole in the handle that can easily be epoxy resin filled/painted/sanded it came to me at under $100.

Complete.

In the bottom half of the case there is a special game case with new press release of Biohazard 1 through 3, which are our main focus here. The discs are specially printed with 'Biohazard 5th Anniversary' on their internal ring, and are numbered disc 1 through 4 for all three games. The discs also come with brand new manuals, reprinted on thick stock in a non-gloss format. Gorgeous.

To see the other items included in this, please see the case and its contents over on Other Items [OI04 onward].




Title: BIOHAZARD 15th Anniversary BOX (バイオハザード イーカプコン限定15周年ボックス) [PS09]
Catalogue: SLPM-87420~3
Released: 08/09/2011
Retail: 7,800円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Disc 1 | Disc 2 | Disc 3 | Disc 4

Information:
An e-Capcom exclusive, this special anniversary release came packed with a lot given it comes in at under $80. This came with a copy of the Revival Selection - a PS3 HD upscale of both Biohazard CODE:Veronica and Biohazard 4, a set of anniversary pins and stickers, physical press copies of Biohazard 1 Director's Cut through to Biohazard 3, two mini soundtracks for CODE:Veronica and Biohazard 4, and a space to slot a PS3 copy of Biohazard 5.

Kind of surreal that we had brand new, yes, brand new Playstation discs were minted and pressed in 2011. They're not re-issues either -- they have brand new catalogue numbers and all. The box also came with new manuals printed for them too; not as nice as the manuals from the 5th Anniversary release but still nice of them to do them.




Title: Resident Evil (レジデント・イービル) [PS10]
Catalogue: SLES-00200
Released: 01/08/1996
Retail: $
Region: PAL
Scans: Front | Back | Manual | Sample Page | Disc

Information:
I currently need to get a new jewel case for this copy — it’s my original jewel case from when it was given to me by my sister back in 1998, previously bought by her in 1997, and it has seen some hard love over the years. The disc too has been heavily used but doesn’t have any disc rot nor issues with reading despite many, many runs being played with it.

Catalogue: SLES-00972
Released: 29/04/1998
Retail: $
Region: PAL
Scans: Front | Back | Manual | Sample Page | Disc

Information:
Much like my copy of RE1, this copy has been very loved and very heavily played, holding a lot of sentimental value to me. It was given to me by my mother, we managed to find a trade-in second hand copy at Electronics Boutique (yes, back when it was called that!) at a really good price during school holidays back in 1998. I was having terrible issues with insomnia even back then, and I used to sit up all night on the big TV out in the living room playing the scenarios to death rather than going cocoa from the inability to sleep.

Games: Sega Saturn Releases [セガサターンのゲーム]



The Sega Saturn. While a somewhat successful console in Japan, the console was barely a spec in other countries. Regardless, it still managed to sell 9.5 million units worldwide despite its issues. It was originally released in 1994 in Japan, and saw a reign of 6 years.

It's almost, ALMOST overkill to have an entire section to just two releases, but what can I say? I'm a tad pedantic and like separating all my games by the system they were on. It certainly makes catalogueuing very easy. Not to mention, there are quite a number of striking differences presented in the Saturn renditions of the games. Biohazard was the only game of the series to make it to the Saturn in 1997. Interestingly, Biohazard 2 was originally going to receive a Saturn port, but it was scrapped. Potentially due to the fact the Saturn was in decline overseas, despite strong support and wide releases in Japan. The system ended up being discontinued in 2000.

BIO HAZARD [SS01]
Resident Evil [SS02]


Title: BIO HAZARD (バイオハザード) [SS01]
Catalogue: T-1219G
Released: 25/071997
Retail: 5,800円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Manual | Back | Sample Page | Obi | Disc

Information:
In my opinion, asides from the later PC ports, the Saturn versions of Biohazard are quite possibly the best versions of the games in the series. In addition to being rendered totally different, the models have much more to them, you can make out better facial details, and the system boasts a higher colour palette- ensuring any return to the PSX titles makes you think your game looks dull in comparison. The engine as a whole runs faster, and the controls were neatened and tightened for this version to cater for the fact the Saturn's D-Pad was much more fluid in movement than the PSX's at the time.

As an extra bonus, there are a few features unique to the Saturn which have remained 100% unique to this port. For a start: Battle Mode. Essentially a beta build of Extreme Battle/The Mercenaries from later games, but a heap of fun. There is even a Wesker zombie! In the story mode, we've also got a second Tyrant to fight in addition to the standard. All in all, a very tidy, very nice port. My copy has a flaw, which might be an error in the disc press, or an error when booting via an Action Replay to bypass region lock, but I cannot actually get beyond the computer in the lab. The game as a whole freezes. A shame, really, as I love marking off all my games as complete in both collection and play.




Title: Resident Evil (レジデントイービル) [SS02]
Catalogue: MK81092-50
Released: 01/10/1997
Retail: $99.95
Region: PAL
Scans: Cover | Manual | Sample Page | Disc

Information:
In my opinion, asides from the later PC ports, the Saturn versions of Resident Evil are quite possibly the best versions of the games in the series. In addition to being rendered totally different, the models have much more to them, you can make out better facial details, and the system boasts a higher colour palette- ensuring any return to the PSX titles makes you think your game looks dull in comparison. The engine as a whole runs faster, and the controls were neatened and tightened for this version to cater for the fact the Saturn's D-Pad was much more fluid in movement than the PSX's at the time.

The English version is exactly what it says on the box: english. There were no real changes made from the JP version at all, and unlike my JP copy, this one I can actually play through to the end! It is a total shelf hog, though, due to that lovely tall box the english Saturn games had.

Biohazard: Mirror

Games: Nintendo 64 Releases [ニンテンドー64のゲーム]



The Nintendo 64. A quite successful console in Japan and worldwide despite competing with the surprise mega-giant that was the Sony Playstation. It sold over 30 million units worldwide and was cherished immensely in the Americas which account for 20 million sales alone. It was originally released in 1996 in Japan, and saw a reign of 7 years. The system was discontinued in 2003.

Just like the Saturn page, it feels almost, ALMOST overkill to have an entire section to just two releases, but the Nintendo 64 port of Biohazard 2 was a technical marvel all of its own. Flawed? Yes, but the PS one was as well in its own rights. The port was handled by Angel Studios, which is now part of Rockstar San-Diego, in combination with Capcom Production Studio 3 and Factor 5. A timeframe of 12 months and 19 people overall assisting with the task of compressing two full CDs worth of data into a N64 Cassette, or Cartridge as they're called in the West.

The special engine for this port spurred the development of Biohazard 0 onto the system, which ultimately got shelved when they realised the game couldn't fit on a single cassette, only seeing the project renewed with the GameCube's release.

Title: BIOHAZARD 2 (バイオハザード2) [RY01]
Catalogue:
Released: 28/01/2000
Retail:
Region: NTSC-J
Scans:

Information:
A marvel and a trainwreck, all at once. The port of Bio2 on N64 certainly is its own technical achievement, but it was so heavily constricted that it suffered as a result. The music alone from the game is heavily altered in some instances because samples are bitcrushed to hell and back depsite them stating they'd achieved higher quality than the PlayStation, and some of the ambience as a result is more unnerving than the original release. Because the sound was encoded in Dolby, however, they are in full surround.

This port also sported some of its own unique features, such as EX files, blood colour/violence setting changes, and an item randomiser. Back before they were cool and everything.




Title: Resident Evil 2 (レジデントイービル 2) [SS02]

Released: 31/10/1999
Retail:
Region: NTSC-U
Scans:

Information:
As above, except: in English! Though, this does notably have some hilariously bad typos in the EX files likely as a result in the time crush they had to get this game out.

I ended up picking up an NTSC-U copy of this game, because the PAL release is notoriously difficult to find, and when you do it often comes with a VERY steep price. Maybe one day I'll replace my NTSC-U one, but until then its my only English copy of this port.

Biohazard: Pride

Games: Dreamcast Releases [ドリームチャストのゲーム]



The Sega Dreamcast was an amazing piece of hardware that was well and truly ahead of its time but it met a swift and early decline, ceasing production in 2001 after only releasing in 1999. Despite that it managed to sell 9.13 million units in it's very short lifetime.

The biggest notch in the Dreamcast's belt was CODE: Veronica, a title that was for a while exclusive to the console and was a stunning graphical jump for the series. It kept the campiness of the prior games, but had another element to it that was very dark and unsettling for the overall story. An updated 'director's cut' version of CV was released on the Dreamcast in Japan exclusively called 'Complete', which added almost 10 more minutes of cutscenes in addition to other internal bug fixes, updated models and textures for certain things, and even more exposition. This version ultimately was the international version that became standard when it was ported to the PS2 in the wake of the DC's decline.

As part of the 5th anniversary, all prior games in the series save for the very original were ported to the DC as well. 2 and 3 are very interesting in specific as they are more or less a port the PC version(s) of the games due to the Windows CE OS on the Dreamcast.

Title: BIOHAZARD 2 Value Plus (バイオハザード2 バリュープラス) [DC01]
Catalogue: T-1214M
Released: 22/12/1999
Retail: 4,800円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Front | Back | Manual | Sample Page | Obi | Disc 1 | Disc 2

Information:
Value Plus is an interesting release. It was pushed out to not only bring in hype relating to CODE:Veronica given it had a trial version disc packaged with it, but was also to fill the gap that CODE:Veronica left thanks to its delays. Value Plus also would be our best console re-issue of Biohazard 2 up until the Gamecube iteration. Value Plus came with all the trimmings: all of Leon A-B/Claire A-B, 4th Survivor, Tofu, and the new Extreme Battle mode that was introduced in the Dual Shock version of Biohazard 2 -- all playable from the get go now without need for unlocking -- in addition to a model and art gallery where high-resolution (for the time) artwork and models could be viewed.

As with all other Biohazard games on the Dreamcast, Value Plus has VMU support and is used as a visual ECG on the controller without a need to check the menu to see your status, along with an ammo counter for the weapon you currently have in use.




Title: BIOHAZARD CODE:Veronica Limited Edition (バイオハザードコード:ベロニカ限定版) [DC02]
Catalogue: T-1210M
Released: 02/03/2000
Retail: 6,980円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Slipcase Front | Slipcase Back | Front | Back | Manual | Sample Page | Disc 1 | Disc 2

Information:
CODE:Veronica was a landmark for the series, with Okamoto calling it the 'true sequel to Biohazard 2' for its continuation of Claire's story path. The game changed up the survival horror pre-set that the series had become known for at that point, removing fixed camera angles in a lot of areas for a panning camera system, fully in-engine rendered backgrounds and environments, and extremely detailed character and enemy models. The game would go on to be one of the Dreamcast's only titles to topple the 1 million sales mark.

The original game came in two releases -- a limited edition version which was given a unique slipcase and if pre-ordered came with a metal plaque featuring Claire's prison ID for Rockfort that featured a unique issue number, and a standard retail release with no added bonuses. The limited edition slipcase release was also the only version of the game issued in the special release Dreamcast models that were brought out for the anniversary of the series (see [HA01] here).

My copy is a bit beaten up, the previous owner didn't retain the obi and the slipcase has suffered UV damage making it crack apart at the seams, but I do thankfully have a fully sealed copy with my Claire version Dreamcast linked above to forever cherish.

Games: Handheld Releases [ハンドへルドのゲーム]



Portable Biohazard games? Sign me the hell up.

With Nintendo being the major pioneer for handheld gaming as is, it's of little surprise that most major releases of Biohazard have been on their systems, but recent games such as Revelations 2 have seen ports done for the Sony PSP Vita, and PSP-PS3 cross play enabled people to play the original versions of the games via emulation if bought off the PSN for the PS3. While the first official portable title came to the series in 1998 thanks to the godsawful Game.com port of Biohazard 2, there were plans to port the original RE to the Gameboy Colour, which ultimately was scrapped -- though two builds of the game exist on the internet to this day after the original ROM cartridges were found and dumped.

Title: Biohazard Gaiden (バイオハザード外伝) [HH01]
Catalog: CGBP-BIOJ(JPN)
Released: 09/01/2006
Retail: 8,500円
Region: No Region
Scans: Box Front | Box Back | Manual | Sample Page | Cartridge

Information:
Another Biohazard -- the official colloquial term of this game as per its box description. Gaiden is a side-story game which takes place on a cruise ship while featuring Leon and Barry as the main characters, which for a while was very heavily debated as to if it was a canon story or not (it's not, but for the record 'another story'/gaiden games can and have been canon in other franchises!)

I finally scored a copy of this in pretty good condition, barring some usual wear and tear on the card slip given Nintendo's perchance to use recyclable materials for packaging vs. more durable (but expensive) plastic. Its a pretty fun game and works pretty well mechanically. While yes it's not as ambitious as some (see: the cancelled RE1 GBC port,) it makes do with its limitations and makes for a good romp if you want something chill to play.




Title: Biohazard Deadly Silence Limited Pack (バイオハザード デッドリーサイレンス リミテッド パック) [HH02]
Catalog: NTR-P-ABHJ(JPN)
Released: 09/01/2006

Region: No Region
Scans: Box Front | Box Back | Cover | Manual | Sample Page | Cartridge

Information:
Oh man, boy did I have a lucky score with this one. See, while I've been a collector for the Biohazard series as a whole for quite a number of years, practically since the series started, I didn't really get a chance to start really collecting various pieces for the series until I was in my last years of High School when I had my own disposable income. I'd seen this version of Deadly Silence on Play-Asia when it was new, and never picked it up. I later got a standard version of the game because I didn't need the other items in the set... ha. ha. haaa. Man I was a stupid kid.

I scored this just prior to escaping to Japan in 2011 for essentially the cost it retailed at, which is awesome because a lot of copies of this sell for around $150-300 on eBay. It was a rage-whim purchase, both for needing the extra items in the box, but because I'd lost my original Biohazard DS cart somewhere and only discovered it while trying to take photos for it. I'm a fan of the DS port, I think it's well done, and a lot of fun. I just wish they'd continued the series, because having portable Biohazard 2 would be just amazing.

Title: Biohazard The Mercenaries 3D (バイオハザード ザ・マーセナリーズ 3D) [HH03]
Catalog: CTR-P-ABM(JPN)
Released: 02/06/2011
Retail: 4,800円
Region: NTSC-J
Scans: Cover | Manual | Sample Page | Cartridge

Information:
I think the best way to describe this item is: happy face. Picked this up while over in Japan in 2011 while staying with my friend denkimouse on the day I got my 1st 3DS as a self-birthday present. Despite copping a lot of flak from various sites, I've personally been having the best of fun with the game, and I think it'll be a copy I cherish for the memories of both being able to pick it up for myself and from how much I played it while over there (and while back home too). Asides from the text in game being in Japanese, and the local connectivity being restricted to users with the JP copies of the game (wi-fi you can go international), there isn't much of a difference between this release and the English release internally.

Of course, the Japanese copy has a nicer cover than then English edition, in my opinion.

Scans: Front | Back | Manual | Sample Page | Cartridge

Information:
They seriously made a port of RE2 for the Game.Com. I wish I was joking. I don't even really have that much to say about this game at all. I lack a unit to play it on, but from some research and videos I've seen it's pretty terrible. It's a LOT better than a lot of stuff on the Game.Com unit, but it's incredibly choppy and stiff. More a game for a collection article than to really play.

Wanted List [希望・探し中バイオハザードのグッズ]



Essentially a place to collate things that I'm hunting for, either actively or passively. Eventually, this will more than likely become a catalogue of things still missing from my grasp. There are a few items I just physically cannot import such as the airsoft replicas, for lack of a weapons license and strict import regulations in Australia, but I still place here simply for the chance that I might one day fit the bill to pull them all in.

If you see any of these items about the web for sale, please feel free to contact me via email (viper.fox[at]me.com), on twitter (@viperhazard), or by leaving a comment here. I appreciate any crumbs brushed my way, as you never know what could pop up.

UPDATE AS OF 30/12/18: THUNDERBOLT, EXTRRA GUNS, Veronica Methodology, Chicken Knife & All Stars, and Feverish Ingredient obtained!

Still desperately seeking 13/Thirteen and Catastrophic Veronica Gene.

B-STING are my top favourite circle for Biohazard doujin and these books just seem to have been really limited in their print. Also on the wanted list is Guns and Phenomenon, the earliest releases by B-Sting, even though they were collated into EXTRA GUNS, but they are a low priority.

Books: Novels [小説]



Novels go hand-in-hand with games like Biohazard. With such a diverse canon to play with and either expand on or simply capture in words, the series has earned quite a number of novels under its belt. Japan began novels for the series in 1997 with 'The Beginning', which was a novel published within the limited edition artbook 'The True Story Behind BIO HAZARD', given away with pre-orders of the Sega Saturn game. The novel front grew quiet until S.D. Perry took up the reins in the US. Eventually, her novels were also translated back into Japanese, while other original novels which never saw the light of day outside of Germany and Japan were published for the 5th anniversary.

Out of all the novels, the only ones which really slip into the set-canon from the game are Rose Blank, To The Liberty and Beast of the Northern Seas. All of these books feature other plots and story elements which sit comfortably in the canon of the games, and none of the novels have any real direct interaction with the game canon characters. It is a shame they have never been published in english. The only exception to this is The Beginning, which from an original-game standpoint before the remake later on was a very big set up for the entire narrative featuring main characters galore. It received a very limited English release, and an actually solid translation to boot.

The blurb on the back describes the book as follows:

The people of England are shaken as a reincarnation of the Jack the Ripper style serial female murders breaks out. The suspect captured, Jack Trump, is being transported to America, for unknown reasons. Even more baffling, the means of transfer being prepared is a large passenger boat owned by Umbrella, named "Liberty." On board, a new virus developed by Umbrella is waiting for the optimum host. Suddenly, the American Navy surges onboard, including a mysterious woman who is watching Jack. When all of these interests collide, on a boat with no escape, a one-sided hunt begins....

A Capcom Official Biohazard Short Story First Prize Winning Work.


This is one of those books that I'd love to be able to one day sit down and try to translate if I found the time. The story sounds very interesting, and the whole of it being confined on a boat is reminiscent of Gun Survivor 4 and Gaiden.




Title: Biohazard (バイオハザード) [NV03]

ISBN: 4-04-352204-5
Released: 25/07/2002
Retail: 552円
Language: Japanese
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
The blurb on the back describes the book as follows:

In a secret "hive" research facility, built deep underground by the giant Umbrella Corporation, an outbreak has occured, from a leak of a virus still in development. An emergency alarm echoed, passageways were blocked for isolation, halon gas was sprayed, and people died as a result. In an ordinary old style home, Alice realized she was losing her memory. Suddenly, taken captive in a special forces raid, a dreadful intrigue awaits Alice. A work, painting a fear that surpasses commonsense. In collaboration with the popular game, made into a film.





Title: Biohazard〈1〉Umbrella's Conspiracy (バイオハザード〈1〉アンブレラの陰謀) [NV04]
Publisher: C・NOVELS (中央公論新社)
ISBN: 4-12-500862-0
Released: 25/07/2004
Retail: 970円
Language: Japanese
Scans: Cover | Inner Wing (1) | Inner Wing (2) | Profile Page (1) | Profile Page (2)

Information:
Umbrella's Conspiracy follows the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team as they struggle to survive the Mansion Incident which started the entire series off. The text is as true to the original as possible, translation wise.

The really interesting thing with the C・NOVELS publications is that one of the best and well known Biohazard fan artist was asked to do the cover work. In addition to a front and back cover, the slip jacket inner wings have unique art, and the book features profile shots of all the major characters present in the book. The artist in question is Wolfina, who painted the covers digitally using Corel Painter.

Wolfina has been working on Biohazard art basically since the games first came out, and still does Biohazard art to this day which is posted on their Pixiv account.




Title: Biohazard〈2〉Cave of Nightmares (バイオハザード〈2〉悪夢の洞窟) [NV05]

Language: Japanese
Scans: Cover | Inner Wing (1) | Inner Wing (2) | Profile Page (1) | Profile Page (2)

Information:
The text is as true to the original as possible, translation wise.

The cover features really lovely art by Wolfina. This is also the first and only time an official publication of S.D. Perry's original books for the series has featured artwork of her original characters. All of the characters have profile shots illustrated in the first pages of the books, and are all over the inner wings of the book.




Title: Biohazard〈3〉City of the Dead (バイオハザード〈3〉死者の街) [NV06]
Publisher: C・NOVELS (中央公論新社)
ISBN: 4-12-500886-x
Released: 25/01/2005

Language: Japanese
Scans: Cover | Inner Wing (1) | Inner Wing (2) | Profile Page (1) | Profile Page (2)

Information:
The text is as true to the original as possible, translation wise.

Again, the cover features artwork by Wolfina. I really dig the eeriness of the covers of the JP version of this book. Wolfina chose to depict the darker side of the games with the sewers as a focus rather than the burning streets the US cover has. Since the book is written to Leon A, Claire B, the front and back feature Leon and Ada, while on the inner wings you've got Claire, HUNK and William Birkin.




Title: Biohazard〈4〉Underground World (バイオハザード〈4〉地下世界) [NV07]

Released: 01/01/2006
Retail: 970円
Language: Japanese
Scans: Cover | Inner Wing (1) | Inner Wing (2) | Profile Page (1) | Profile Page (2)

Information:
The text is as true to the original as possible, translation wise. In this case that's a bad thing because this is the most awful book of the series done by S.D. Perry -- incredibly rushed, half the size of other releases, and reads okay-ish until about halfway where it then turns into a shitshow with the most out of character Wesker seen in 'official' material.

On the upside: more awesome art by Wolfina.




Title: Biohazard Umbrella Chronicles SIDE A (バイオハザード アンブレラ・クロニクルズ SIDE A) [NV10]
Publisher: Kadokawa Publishing Co., Ltd. (角川書店)
ISBN: 978-4-04-352211-8
Released: 25/12/2007
Retail: 552円
Language: Japanese
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
Umbrella Chronicles SIDE A and SIDE B are, essentially, novelisations of the game. The books gloss lightly over the re-capped scenarios, but expand further in text the special canonical side plots and the final mission of the game which saw the end of Umbrella. The blurb on the back describes the book as follows:

On an express train, Rebecca and Billy are attacked by passengers who have been turned into Zombies. In a house, Chris and Jill desperately fight for their lives. Moreover, the destruction of Raccoon City continues. This is all related to the corporate giant, the Umbrella Corporation, and the dark, secret dealings of Albert Wesker. The virus that changes living things into zombies, and the people who fight for the virus's destruction without any knowledge. The enigma will now be revealed.


It's one of those books that really should be translated into English for the extreme amount of extra canon exposition it adds from Albert Wesker's point of view up to the Russia 2003 incident, but likely won't be. Which is a shame. Regardless, it's a nice collection addition.

The blurb on the back describes the book as follows:

Because of the Umbrella Corporation's intrigues, the world's dead have become zombies. After the destruction of Raccoon City, a new conspiracy is being planned in Umbrella's Russian facility. The Umbrella Company's plan, the actions of Albert Weskar, and all forecasts are all tied together into one. All the biohazard matters that started on the express train now come to a close. The conclusion of the novella from Capcom's popular, world-famous game.


It's one of those books that really should be translated into English, but likely won't be. Which is a shame. Regardless, it's a nice collection addition.

Language: English

Information:
I remember fondly reading this book in the car while driving between states in 2003 when I was in the USA with my parents. I'd picked up this and other missing Resident Evil novels while I was there (for a lot cheaper than the Australian price, I assure you) and was quite wrapped by them. The only thing I don't really like when it comes to City of the Dead is that it follows the non-canon Leon A, Claire B. If anything it leads to a half-baked plot thanks to this, and while S.D. Perry did an okay job at handling it, it could have been much better with the Claire A, Leon B path.

Books: Comics [漫画]



Comics for the series come in so many shapes, sizes, and forms that it's kind of amazing to see all the variety and selection that's out there. While there were only a few English release comics in the late 90s at the start of it all, China scored a publishing deal with Capcom to produce enormous print runs of manhuas and create merchandise like metal figures and miniature replicas of items. Only one of the Chinese manhua series saw an official English translation. Japan joined in later with their own manga series, done as official tie-ins to fill plot gaps with Marhawa Desire and the up-and-coming BIOHAZARD ~heavenly island~ manga series.

It's somewhat surprising that it's China with the monopoly on comics/manga/manhua here. Japan just never really got into the comics scene for Biohazard until recently, and English produced and made comics for Resident Evil are both hit and miss as well as published few and far-between, though localisations of the Japanese mangas are finally occurring (about 2 years too late, to boot.)

Outside of strategy guides, it's the comics of Biohazard that are incredibly numerous and diverse thanks to the manhua publications.

Officially licensed by Capcom, these manhua publications were incredibly popular for the chinese BH fans, and even had a lot of exclusive and very hard to find merchandise made in addition to alternate prints and covers.

My copies of the Last Escape release are from the second printing done for Taiwan; translated into taiwanese mandarin, smaller in size, sturdy covers, and complete with a shared ISBN between all 26 volumes. They were sold as a set for 117.00元 for all 26, or 4.50元 per single. Unlike the reprints for the BH3 Supplementary Volumes, all of these are in colour.

Biohazard: バレンタインズ

Books: Doujinshi [同人誌] - Page 1



Doujinshi are fan-made and fan-printed comics in Japan, usually done by artists, aspiring manga-ka or even by published manga-ka as a fun way of keeping touch with the fandom and drawing about the series and characters they love. You can usually find doujinshi made for many fandoms in Japan, and Biohazard is no exception.

I tend to stick to games from the series I really enjoy, particular circles (Round Scope, B-STING, etc.,) and focus pieces on favourite characters or 'all-chara' books. Although doujinshi are considered an unofficial/fan-made article, and would normally be catalogued with my other custom items, they are catalogued on their own page due to the sheer number of them.

I also have a rule when it comes to doujinshi: I prefer to avoid the adult or R-18 oriented ones as they are more often than not purely porn or hentai filled. Like any fandom, Biohazard has a big adult-art scene in Japan, which easily is over half of the major posts on places like Pixiv, or in circles even to this day for publishing. So instead, I have accumulated a lot of action/comedy/storytelling/slice of life/gag style comics.

They're kind of like a time-capsule of the Japanese fandom, with a lot of recurring gags across various circles crossing over because it was the 'in' thing back when those games or that part of the story was out.

Regarding the scanning and translation of doujinshi (scanslations): though we aim to give a synopsis of the contents of each book, along with scans of their covers and where allowed a sample page, Viperhazard does not condone or partake in the act of sharing entire scans of doujinshi online. I also deeply respect the wishes of artists who explicitly state that their work not be distributed/reproduced, and only will scan the cover of those books for identification needs and no sample page.

Title: Fright Night (フライト ナイト) [DJ01]
Circle: DOG HOUSE
Released: 04/08/1996
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Tank controls strike as Jill struggles to run through areas and open doors to try get Richard the serum -- and takes a shower and a nap enroute. This comedic retelling of the first game is rather fun, and has a lot of small visual pun gags as well as poking fun at things like the attract mode demo of the game where Chris pushes the stepladder over to the statue, climbs up it, then goes back down it without taking the map.

The doujin ultimately ends with Jill blowing up Chris and Barry for taking their sweet time to get up the elevator leaving her to deal with the Tyrant. I rather like this doujin, not only is it the earliest one I have in the history of the fandom, but DOG HOUSE ended up publishing a lot of works over the years and all of them are charming and fun gag doujin.




Title: Sleepwalker Road (離魂道) [DJ02]
Circle: Recondo
Released: 20/04/1997
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
A rare, old 1997 doujinshi. For the most part, it’s quite serious, dealing with character relations, and even has Jill contemplating shooting herself after being bitten by a zombie, and Rebecca reading the diary of a girl going progressively mad from infection.

It does have some fantastic gag pages, such as Barry freaking out in English over a plate of sandwiches while screaming Jill’s name (a play on the series long gag of “almost a Jill-filled sandwich”,) and Chris dying in-game because he tipped the mixed herb paper upside down in the check screen. It needs the comedic breaks because they give a breather between some very heavy stories.

Interestingly, the circle Recondo is actually Yoshihiro Togashi working solo in the fandom. He is most notable for having created YuYu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter and as the husband of Naoko Takeuchi of Sailor Moon fame.




Title: NIGHT Stalker [DJ03]
Circle: DOG HOUSE
Released: 15/08/1997
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Jill and Rebecca meet up instead of Rebecca and Chris, and Wesker finds his plans getting fast thwarted by the dynamic duo. Chris, upon reuniting with Jill, insists that because they are Americans they should have a sweet hollywood style reunion complete with a romantic kiss and asks her to enter the cell again. She blows him up.

This doujin also features a guest story that the DOG HOUSE team illustrated, dealing with Rebecca as she has to see her team-mates die over the course of events and how it affects her when she reunites with the survivors of Alpha. It's pretty sweet, even with the sadder undertone compared to the comedy pieces earlier.




Title: Powerful Fleeting People (強く儚い者たち) [DJ04]
Circle: Tsushima Paperback (津島文庫)
Released: 29/03/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Though it has some serious undertones in areas due to the scenes it's retracing from Biohazard 2, a lot of this features gags or plays on very specific personality traits the characters have which absolutely floor the others every time they come up. Only a small doujin, clocking in at only 18 pages all up.




Title: Gatling Warning (ガトリング警報) [DJ05]
Circle: Tenrindou Side-S (天淋堂 SIDE-S)
Released: 04/01/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Gatling Warning is an entire retelling of Bio 2's canon story of Claire A-Leon B with a comedic twist and adorable art, all squeezed into just over 30 pages. It even has a few Bio 1 4-Koma shorts! Heaps of fun overall. Tenrindou was pretty popular in the fandom during the time they published works, with a website that often had heaps of artwork they did out of love for the series that didn't get printed into their doujin materials. Sadly a lot of them are gone in the aether these days, with not a lot of them coming up on the internet archive, so it's nice to have printed history for them.




Title: SURVIVAL NIGHT [DJ06]
Circle: DOG HOUSE
Released: 04/05/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Leon barely makes it to the station on behalf of tank controls, even having to pause to consider the manual, leaving him hardly impressed when Marvin wants to kick him out of the east wing office. Claire finds memos from some of the officers talking about the rookie Leon and how excited they are to meet him, including hoping he's hot. Meanwhile, Leon tries to get the computer in the lab working but upon finding it needs a second finger print he goes for a less-than-favourable option of attempting to utilise Annette's after her passing.

Sherry tells him right off.




Title: Biohazard REPLICA (バイオハザードレプリカ) [DJ07]
Circle: Keishi Nagare
Released: 14/06/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
REPLICA features two major stories – the first covers the strong friendship of Chris and Jill when she discovers him imprisoned in the Arklay Laboratory, complete with flashbacks to their first time working together. While mostly a serious story, there are some hilarious gags thrown in to lighten it up such as Tyrant gurgling that Chris left his underwear behind while holding it up on its claws as they escape.

The second is Biohazard 2 focused and deals mostly with Claire, Sherry, and Ada all picking on a very whiny, clingy Leon for anything and everything.

Even Tofu makes an appearance… only to be hammer-squashed to pieces by the T-103.




Title: Cubic Horror - BIO HAZARD Alone in the Cruel Night [DJ08]
Circle: Burosu (ブロス)
Released: 13/08/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Cubic Horror is another Bio 1 cross 2 doujin, with two set stories that are full of gags and fun. The first involves Jill trying to work her way up the ranks of S.T.A.R.S. while they look for a new team member -- it even includes a Hunter being interviewed! The second is all about how poor rookie cop Leon is ignored, the whole time, by everyone in Bio 2. I love this one; lots of funny moments and cute art.




Title: BIOHAZARD [DJ09]
Circle: H.S.G
Released: 13/08/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Lickers terrify Claire, until she goes to the item chest and pulls all her infinite ammo weapons out and unleashes hell. Leon keeps having to go back for Ada because she stops and sits down when he gets too far away, and when he's in desperate need for health he trips and dies by hitting his head against a desk. H.S.G's Biohazard doujin is full of fun gags taking place during the events of Biohazard 2.

Hazuki Shinobu is a published shoujo mangaka, with works like Genyou, Youma no Fuuin, Twin Cross, and Rekka Fumuden under her belt. She hasn't published works in quite a long time, and according to her bio on her Syosetu page she has issues with numbness/nerve damage in her arm which is preventing her drawing like she used to. This is one of her most "recent" releases.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual DX [DJ10]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 14/08/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
This is a nice collection doujinshi, collating Survival Manual releases 1 through 5 — given some of the older early releases from Round Scope are harder to come by it is a great piece to snap up to be able to enjoy them. It's quite hefty!




Title: G-SHOCK [DJ011]
Circle: Kanazawa Printing (金沢印刷様)
Released: 15/09/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
With the exception of the last story, where Leon mourns over killing a lady zombie, most of this little 26 page doujin is full of gags -- mostly revolving around Claire outranking Leon so hard she has unlocked all the secret/EX weapons and turns into the ultimate BOW killer. It even has an Alien gag with Sherry and the G-Creature, and Claire taking potshots at Annette and Wesker.




Title: FINAL PLAY [DJ12]
Circle: GODAP
Released: xx/11/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
The first few pages have Sherry going hand to hand against Mr. X and absolutely wrecking it -- I think that says a lot about this one. It also has her giving the Tyrant her pendant and that breaking a curse, turning it into a fair maiden, Marvin following Leon and giving him pointers, and Tofu meeting Hunk and saving them. It's a wild ride.




Title: BIOHAZARD 2 (-1) [DJ13]
Circle: Mitsudo Ball (三井堂玉)
Released: 29/12/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
"Wait, don't shoot!"
"Get down!"

Leon fires, and hits Claire who failed to duck in time while the zombie did. The opening gag starts us off on a surreal and hilarious journey - it's very Japanese in its humour, lending to a lot of slapstick and fun exaggerated expressions. A relatively small doujin but a fun one nonetheless.



Title: Silver Gun & Survival Life [DJ14]
Circle: Burosu (ブロス)
Released: 30/12/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Wildman Chris Redfield mortifies Rebecca by eating the adders that drop out of the trees in the courtyard, Captain Wesker isn't feeling the love as all the teammates of Alpha leave cute notes for each other, Leon tries to woo Ada, and Claire discovers Sherry is a bit of a handful. All gags, lots of fun.




Title: THUNDERBOLT [DJ15]
Circle: B-STING
Released: 30/12/1998
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Grail: attained!

B-Sting’s third foray into the world of Survival Horror comes in the form of another Biohazard 2 themed doujinshi. Much like their prior two releases (Guns, Phenomenon - later combined into Extra Guns in 1999) the stories vary from heavy comedy to much more serious pieces and are evenly spaced out to make the entire book great to read.

Marvin discovers that it’s Leon’s birthday and proceeds to not just tell the entire precinct but the entire city, with poor Leon left in a stupor as they roll down the main street in an RPD SUV to a parade for the rookie. Sherry comes across Cody (Final Fight) beating up zombies hand to hand and Claire doesn’t believe her when she relays the event.

Amidst the 4koma shorts is a more serious side-story based around Sherry as she wanders alone trying to evade the undead - when she gets grabbed by a zombie and she thinks it’s her end, she’s saved by another zombie who bites through the throat of the enemy zombie to take off its head. The zombie carefully speaks, only just holding onto its last shred of humanity, and its then that Sherry recognises him – one of her fellow senior classmates who often helped her study.

As he urges her to run away he pulls a gun and decides to end his life before he fully succumbs to the virus, wanting to die a human who did good in the end.




Title: CUSTOMIZE [DJ16]
Circle: Raccoon Vigilante (ラクーン自警団)
Released: 03/05/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
For as serious as the covers make out, CUSTOMIZE is mostly poking fun at our Biohazard 2 protagonists, with a majority of the first story dedicated to, well, customisation. Of the EX-Outfits variety. There's a spoof about House of the Dead re: the G-Virus and Jill joining in on the Biohazard 2 fun, and even G1 William trying his hardest to get a bento lunch to Sherry because she left home without it.




Title: Stalker's High [DJ17]
Circle: LAST ESCAPE
Released: 13/08/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
This one has been a favourite of mine for years. From Jill having a running contest against Nemesis, to zombies thinking she and Carlos are getting hot and steamy in the chapel when she's groaning in pain from infection, to her being a cat burglar and pilfering all of Carlos' goods outside the gas station and running off while he screams after her that he's not dead.

Heaps of gags -- one of my most adored being the poor Hunter Gamma expiring in the aqua tube behind Carlos (who doesn't notice it) after he's drained the water. Definitely one to pick up.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 9 [DJ18]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 13/08/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Survival 9 opens with a comic about the Biohazard Midnight Party fan event the mangaka went to, leading to a 3koma on the exact types of Leon you can find in the world: the angsty cosplay Leon, the very cool non-canon Leon, and the Renfro Leon (ala the CM for Biohazard 2 at the time.) Survival 9 has another chapter in the Enricohazard miniseries, before diving into a pretty serious and... really rather depression comic from Sherry's point of view, dealing with how she's always sought the validation and love of her parents.

She finds that validation with Claire, feeling like a piece of the puzzle complete in her life for meeting her despite the hellish circumstances that lead to it.




Title: fall into a "PITFALL" [DJ19]
Circle: Kuriei Company (くりえい社)
Released: 21/08/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Plant 43 keeps growing in planters and pots in place of herbs -- much to everyone's annoyance. Dogs steal herbs before Leon can get to them, Sherry tackles a poor Licker, Claire lasso's one, and Leon is getting no luck from Ada. Pitfall also has a cute end comic where Rebecca creates a chemical compound in lieu of V-Jolt that she throws against the wall... and Chris grows out of it.

Hilarious -- and the right side of weird that is very Japanese.




Title: Hot Berry (ホットベリー) [DJ20]
Circle: Tenrindou Side-S (天淋堂 SIDE-S)
Released: 14/11/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
"Hey Claire, meet my new friend!" says Leon, who presents a zombiefied Marvin. The gag is repeated again on the last page, with Claire introducing to Leon her new friend too -- zombie Brad. Hot Berry is cute and full of a lot of female-cast focused pieces, all of them either cute or funny. I've always enjoyed Side-S doujin for their style and humour, and this one hits all the right notes.




Title: Manly Knife Clear 8 (男ならナイフクリア8) [DJ21]
Circle: Mosquito&Magnolia
Released: 24/12/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
A mostly Bio 3 themed book, with some touches on 2. It has Leon terrifying Chief Irons with his extreme passion, along with Jill and Claire making a voodoo doll of Chris for him constantly going missing. My favourite gag is where Nemesis runs away horrified from Jill when she decides that one of his neck tentacles would make a great hose for the hydrant.




Title: EXTRA GUNS [DJ22]
Circle: B-STING
Released: 24/12/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Grail: attained!

A compilation manga, clocking in at a hefty 70 pages, which combines the first two books (Guns, Phenomenon) ever released by Mahiro Nouno under his B-STING handle, and also features additional guest illustrations.

Extra Guns features a comedic twist on a majority of its stories, much like other later B-Sting releases, such as Sherry running into her mutated father who gives her pointers on PPE and workplace safety in the sewers before wishing her good luck as he departs, Claire witnessing a wrestling match between Mike Haggar (Final Fight) and the T-103, and many comedic 4-Koma including Sherry interrupting a ‘romantic moment’ in the elevator with Leon and Ada who only notice her there when she whispers 「にやり」inappropriately at them.

Lots of stellar art and good laughs throughout, with the comedic pacing padding out some of the heavier stories contained within.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 10 [DJ23]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 24/12/1999
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Enricohazard is replaced with Carloshazard in this issue which covers a lot of Biohazard 3 content.

Survivor 10's main story looks at Jill during the start of the outbreak in Raccoon, with her mostly not coping post events of the mansion. She even visits Robert Kendo, who makes sure she's got her samurai edge with things turning sour. She cuts her hair, collects what resources she can, accepts the finality that she has lost friends now in the outbreak and decides its time to try make her Last Escape.




Title: The Call of VERONICA (ベロニカが呼んでいる) [DJ24]
Circle: DOG HOUSE
Released: 01/04/2000
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Poor Rodrigo, so confused as to how Claire has a lighter after 10 days of incarceration. Full of puns, 4-Koma, and great moments like Claire stripping completely bare to get through the awful metal detector and it still going off due to a filling in her teeth. Very lighthearted and funny.




Title: Urgency Avoid!!! (緊急回避発動!!!) [DJ25]
Circle: Tenrindou Side-S (天淋堂 SIDE-S)
Released: 29/04/2000
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
I remember eons and eons ago in the days of early Biohazard fandom on the internet, I used to frequent the lead Side-S artist's website and admiring the cover art of Jill for this. Never thought I'd get the actual doujin in hand back then, when I could only just read a small smattering of hiragana. One of the best gags in this Bio 3 only book involves Jill having to manually power the rail cannon to take out Nemesis, and she comes out victorious, complete with amazingly over-exaggerated expressions.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 11 [DJ26]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 04/05/2000
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
The 11th volume of the Survival Manual series has a CODE: Veronica focus, with a big main story called 'Future Design: Dream Kingdom' which follows young Alexia and Alfred during Alexia's prime with viral research. Really interesting and in-depth -- very in-canon in how it's written too, complete with the twins finding out the truth of their dynasty.




Title: Fade Out [DJ27]
Circle: VESPER
Released: 04/05/2000
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Fade Out is a mixed bag -- a good mixed bag, but it's sort of like Sleepwalker Road in that it's got a fairly large amount of gags padding out a much more serious and pretty dark story in one section.

Nestled after 4-koma of hilarious before and after pictures of certain characters, we see Jill going through a mental crisis during the Bio 3 scenario, ending ultimately on a big downer that strengthens her resolve to abolish Umbrella fully. Very full on, but the starting gag pages and end gag with Steve touting a Typing of the Dead Dreamcast pack do help soften the blow.




Title: Zombie Complex [DJ28]
Circle: DOG HOUSE
Released: 12/8/2000
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Chris drops his pack on the climb up to Rockfort, and we see the Rocket Launcher and other unlimited ammo weapons he'd borrowed from Jill sinking into the sea. Claire assumes she can reach Leon with the simple email LEON@police.com and ends up with him freaking out while in protective custody for receiving outside-contact. Zombie Complex has a lot of fun gag art and jokes all 'round about CV, and is a favourite of mine for the style of it all.




Title: CATASTROPHIC VERONICA GENE [DJ29]
Circle: B-STING
Released: 12/8/2000
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Grail: attained!

'If I'm going to get that S Rank Clear...' Chris muses to himself, stripping down to nothing for the sake of speed and to terrorise the poor hunters who come to the alerts from the spy drones but are too intimidated by his muscles. Some of Rockfort's finest torture options include preparing a full sushi meal with the finest chefs and Alfred eating it in front of the prisoner, Chris gets axed in the back by Alexia for littering in her ant mound room (specifically with a cigarette butt at that,) and then he gets stuck trying to solve a puzzle because it involves a rubik's cube.

Catastrophic Veronica Gene is just a lot of fun, with an entire mid-section full of many 4koma, including an officiant dealing with the marriage of two T-102 units, and Chris wondering what the Hunters that are buzzed in by the drones do in their spare time since they're otherwise never actually near-by until he trips one of the traps.

The last story is a gag Mercenaries take on the Battle Game, and when Wesker opens the door to a room filled with zombies Claire, Chris, and Steve all freak out thinking its the end. Until Wesker uses his ultimate attack: the Hyper Power Wesker Beam. Hilariously... the beam became pseudo-canon over a decade later.




Title: Biohazard Seasonal Vol.5 (バイオハザード 春夏秋冬 vol.5) [DJ30]
Circle: Harimaya
Released: 24/06/2001
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Probably one of the few more explicit ones I own -- and it's played completely for a gag. The UBCS soldiers get a little too carried away thinking about a naked Jill (complete with full-frontal nudity), which results in her torching them all by blowing up the cable car. Jill hasn't got time to be objectified! The other two stories featured include the mishaps of Chris and Rebecca trying to take on Plant 42, with poor Chris going on a bit of a carnival ride from hell with it, and then an extended repeat of the first gag -- this time based on The Mercenaries.

The drunkard USBC members once again get too excited thinking about Jill in various costumes -- it ends ultimately with The Boss character blowing up the cable car, Jill bitterly exclaiming "... Men."

I super love the art-style of Harimaya group, so it's a treat the whole way through.




Title: VERONICA METHODOLOGY [DJ31]
Circle: B-STING
Released: 10/08/2001
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Grail: attained!

Veronica Methodology is B-Sting’s CODE:Veronica Complete focused manga, and following previous releases it holds a comedic tone for a majority of the stories contained within.

Amongst the myriad of 4koma is a more serious story where Steve’s dying memories are of the times he was happy with his family, with Wesker’s henchmen being disturbed that he’s just a kid as they wrap up his body to take away. Thank gods there is a lot of comedy to balance it out, including:

Claire, after slapping some sense into Steve about running ahead without her, pincer a Bandersnatcher to pull its hyper-flexible arm beyond its limit. Chris discovers a cute cook kitchen gadget randomly in a hallway, and learns upon turning it to face him is a trip sensor leading him to be assailed by one of Wesker’s hunters. The giant spider gets blown up only to show its abdomen was full of Sony products, including the PS2 on which they were about to be poorly ported to.

And poor Alfred, attempting to execute a traitor but finding his aim at nearly point blank with a pistol is so poor he can’t hit him – much to the amusement of the other Umbrella staff.

As with all other B-Sting releases, the art is stellar.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 13 [DJ32]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 10/08/2001
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Survival 13 continues with some of its traditional -hazard style gag comics, but its central focus piece is a really interesting look into events post Biohazard 3, with Barry getting Jill and Carlos onto the airbase where an old airforce friend is the commander which was how he was able to get a chopper to get her out of Raccoon. As Jill finds herself self-isolating, particularly in needing to do a medical for ongoing base clearance thanks to the trauma of the events combined with having an all-too-close dash with a virus thanks to Nemesis, Carlos starts to talk to Barry about what happened.

While Barry is initially weary once he hears Carlos was once part of Umbrella's UBCS, he gives him an open ear. They both resolve in the end to protect one another along with those they care for, Barry respecting him for sticking with Jill through the thick of it all.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 14 [DJ33]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 10/08/2001
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
The 14th entry in a long-running series from Round Scope, Survival Manual 14 brings us two wildly different stories in its 38 pages.

We've got a long addition to the Enricohazard series, wherein Barry goes and enlists the help of Robert Kendo to deal with Enrico, who decided that having a drinking contest with Chris was a good idea (it wasn’t.) The rest of Alpha and Bravo team all have to deal with Enrico in turn and it results in Kendo finalising Enrico’s model of Samurai Edge with a pink S.T.A.R.S. emblem in revenge for the trouble caused.

The second is a lot more heavy-handed. A CODE: Veronica focus piece from Steve’s perspective as he awakens in Alexia’s grasp as her new play-thing for experimentation. As his mind is warped from the infection he sees visions of Claire and their time together through their escape, leading him to rescue her from the Veronica Plant instead of killing her due to his love for her.

As he fades while she is crying over him, he thinks that things’ll be okay as they’ll go to Hawaii where he won’t feel so cold anymore.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual DX2 [DJ34]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 10/08/2001
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Much like the first deluxe collection, the Survival Manual DX2 collates releases 6 through 12 into a single volume. Also another easy way to get ones hands on the releases as individual doujinshi become harder to come across.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 15 [DJ35]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 29/12/2001
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Survival 15's main story looks at Ada, and in particular how she survived the ordeals of Biohazard 2 with thanks to Wesker's part in it. As the lab descends into chaos from the self-destruct, they both witness the T-103 survive the molten bath it had by having a critical V-ACT. Wesker rejoices in seeing such a spectacular mutation, but Ada knows exactly where that thing is headed and decides that escaping can wait -- she has to make sure Leon gets out safe, and ensures he gets the Rocket Launcher.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 16 [DJ36]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 10/08/2002
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Survival 16 swings hard and heavy with its main story, dealing with Jill's memories of her colleagues in S.T.A.R.S. before the Mansion Incident. She is hit particularly hard with the loss of Forest, who did a lot of training with her and they often hung out outside of work, and ends up saluting his weapon she acquired after finding his corpse as a send-off when she feels she's got the strength to go on.




Title: JUDGEMENT NIGHT [DJ37]
Circle: DOG HOUSE
Released: 10/08/2002
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
"Barry's Investigation Corner" - Jill comes back to the dining room multiple times over 3 hours but Barry is still there, just examining the blood non-stop. Despite being a gamecube-era Biohazard 1 focus comic, it does take some fun from its 1996 predecessor in the form of Barry's fantastic excitement on finding certain items he thinks are super important. Judgement Night is a smaller book but it has a lot of great art and fun.




Title: Midnight Resurrection [DJ38]
Circle: B-STING
Released: 29/12/2002
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
B-Sting is my favourite circle -- not only do they have an extremely professional-grade art style that is consistent the entire way through, but they've got the right mix of comedy. Midnight Resurrection covers a massive amount of subjects, and even has an entire few pages dedicated to 4-Koma style mini comics, including Rebecca decorating zombies to look like drunk university students and Jill taunting Cerberii to the point one pees on a herb through the fence.

There is a serious story in the last section, which deals with two Arklay scientists heatedly beginning to disagree over the ethics and treatment of the whole Lisa Trevor situation, including the experimentation. It's not a pretty end for one of them.

Amazing art through and through -- a big recommend from me and thankfully one of their easier releases to obtain.




Title: S.T.A.R.S. Survival Manual 17 [DJ39]
Circle: Round Scope
Released: 29/12/2002
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
Chris survives a Cerberus attack thanks to Wesker, so they team up to better survey the mansion and all of its rooms. Chris suspects nothing, even with Wesker seeming to know all the solutions to the puzzles, keeping his back covered from zombies and other BOW as they trek into the lab... and into the holding cells where Wesker traps Chris. A humorous look into how things could've lead to one of the alpha team being imprisoned.

Also: Enricohazard ZERO!




Title: Assault! Next Happy Trigger (突撃!となりのハッピートリガー) [DJ40]
Circle: All-Natural House G (総天然舎 G)
Released: 12/08/2003
Scans: Front Cover | Back Cover | Sample Page

Information:
The only Gun Survivor 4 doujinshi, quite possibly ever.
Features Bruce McGivern and Fonling dressing up fancily to suit the cruise ship. Poor Ark tries to socialise with some of the other characters in the series but they don't know who he is — as Leon, his supposed best friend, had failed to tell them about him.

Poor Ark.

The final gag is about how the Hypnos Tyrant from Survivor, more or less, can't sit with the lady tyrants of the series.

Title: Biohazard The True Story Behind BIO HAZARD [NV01]
Publisher: Flagship (フラグシップ)
ISBN: N/A (Ltd. Number: 129592)
Released: 25/07/1997
Retail: Not For Sale
Language: Japanese
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
This lovely rare little book is often sought after by many collectors and general fans of the series, for this book has some interesting and rare goodies inside of it. Firstly, it contained the first and only prints of the George Trevor notes. These were originally going to play a part in Biohazard, as George Trevor was the architect behind the Spencer Estate, but the subplot was scrapped and moved into the book. It's still canon, but it was something they didn't really incorporate properly into the games until the remake much later down the track. The book also features concept art, story boards, interviews with the creators, and a novel called 'The Beginning' which focuses on Chris trying to find his missing friend before the events of the first game. His friend who happened to be an Umbrella employee (and you can just imagine how well that went.)

It's a lovely book, and I urge anyone who spots one for a good price to pick it up if you like the history. Copies were originally given away with pre-orders of the Sega Saturn game, which is the other reason as to why the book can be sometimes quite elusive. The official english translation even more so.

A lovely, tidy art book featuring high quality prints of the, at the time, latest model renders from Biohazard (Rebirth) and Biohazard Ø. It also features a DVD which has a compilation of gameplay and cutscenes pieced together to tell the story of all the games which had been released up until then, along with trailers and other goods. This is a very, very special book to me. It was really my first foray into collecting the books of Biohazard (outside of the novels, which at the time I had accumulated on my own), but it was also given to me as a gift during a rough patch in my life. While I take great care in all my artbooks, this one is the most pristine even with the amount of times I have flicked through it and enjoyed the pages.

Media: Soundtracks [オリジナル・サウンドトラック] - PAGE 1



The Soundtracks, to me, are one of the biggest parts of the game. I adore the gameplay, for sure, but the music is what defines it and etches it into my memory most of the time. From the rolling tremolo strings of the first Tyrant battle, to the soprano opera of Alexia's Theme, to the gentler and eerier ambience of environment incidental themes. BioHazard has had a history of extremely memorable music, from a wide array of composers. Masami Ueda was the initial frontman who created many moody pieces that we all remember well, but works from others have set their own marks in the history of the series. In addition to a plethora of amazing scores, the series has also seen it's fair share of Japanese-exclusive sound dramas.

I've had the pleasure of meeting one of the arrangers, Mr. Wataru Hokoyama, during A Night in Fantasia 2009 in Sydney. Hokoyama was in charge of the arrangement and orchestration of some of the more climatic and epic pieces for BioHazard 5. I hope to one day meet Ueda and the others, to thank them for giving me music which has been a part of my life for the past 20 years.

Though I have a few double ups when it comes to some small compilation discs that were given out in special edition releases of games, the goal of soundtracks for the series is ultimately the same as my game collecting for it: Japanese release + English release where possible. The English side of the soundtracks is a lot smaller thanks to lack of release outside of Japan in physical mediums, and in fact has some rarer finds in it as a result from the early days of the franchise in the 90s.

Additionally, in the interest of archival and preservation to ensure that unreleased tracks aren't lost to the void of time, you can view our own Biohazard album releases comprising of tracks and games that never got official soundtracks here (and mirrored on plant-42).

Title: I Won't Let This End As A Dream (夢で終わらせない・・・) [CD01]
Publisher: EMI Music Japan (EMIミュージック・ジャパン)
Catalogue: TODT-3706
Released: 10/04/1996
Retail: 1,000円
Scans: Front | Back | Disc

Information:
The very first official Biohazard CD released happened to be this very awesome single by Fumitaka Fuchigami. The title track was used as the ED theme for the credits in the Japanese release of Biohazard, while the second track called Icy Gaze (氷のまなざし) was used in promotional CMs and originally was the OP track for the cast introduction before it was replaced in the Director's Cut with the English track "Terror".

「夢で終わらせない」was the Japanese platinum trophy name for Revelations 2 as a nice throwback, too!

Being a single there are only four tracks, the two title tracks followed by their karaoke versions, its a very small release and its often rather obscure to find for collectors. Its incredibly 90s too, and the cheesiness of the tracks just perfectly compliment the electronic-90s style that Mikami had in mind for the original game.

And honestly, both are amazing to belt out in the car.




Title: BIOHAZARD Sound Track Remix (バイオハザード サウンドトラックリミックス) [CD02]
Publisher: EMI Music Japan (ミュージック・ジャパン)
Catalogue: TVCV-5511
Released: 07/08/1996
Retail: 2,800円
Scans: Booklet | Back | Sample Page | Obi | Disk

Information:
The remix album was as close to the first official OST release for the series ever, and was the only official release of the music from BH1 in any capacity, remixed or not. All the tracks of the game were reworked and arranged, and even included Still Dawn which was the ED track for the international release of Resident Evil which would later be featured as the ED theme for BH Director's Cut in September of the same year.

This album is a bit tricky to track down in any release, as it saw localisations in Europe and the US as well, and is really neat in my opinion. Some of the arrangements made for this soundtrack also ended up being used in the Deadly Silence port such as the Save Room theme and the Vacant Lot music.




Title: BIOHAZARD ~The Machova Village Tragedy~ (バイオハザード~マコバヴィレッジの惨劇~) [CD03]
Publisher: Sony Music Records (ソニー・ミュージックレコーズ)
Catalogue: SRCL-4181
Released: 31/12/1997
Retail: 2,854円
Scans: Booklet | Back | Sample Page | Disk

Information:
Machova is a somewhat dilapidated village around 40km away from Raccoon City at the northern end of the Arklay Mountains, housing only a tiny population of about fifty people.

Jill Valentine, who was on leave at the time, was called back in to Raccoon City due to the grizzly murders that had been occurring -- with the most recent shocking development being that Bravo Team had disappeared. During her drive back to Raccoon City, she is involved in a car accident thanks to a runaway driver. Uninjured, but shaken, Jill leaves her car and goes to check on the other driver only to find that not only were they dead, but it looked like they had also been mauled by some kind of animal.

This begins an investigation which leads her into Machova Village, where things are not what they seem.


The events of the Machova Village drama are a prelude to the original story of Biohazard, and when released was considered canonical alongside the original novel written in the The True Story Behind BIO HAZARD book where Chris tries to find where a missing friend is during the Arklay Murders. Given Zero's story had already been for the most part written in '97 and was being tweaked until '99 when the Nintendo 64 game was being developed, these events were likely meant to happen at the same time, or a few days prior, before all coming together at the Mansion Incident. This is a very neat, rare little gem in the soundtrack collection filled with a lot of suspense and drama.

Title: BIOHAZARD 2 Original Soundtrack (バイオハザード2オリジナルサウンドトラック) [CD04]
Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPCA-1001
Released: 21/01/1998
Retail: 2,100円
Scans: Slip Cover | Booklet | Back | Sample Page | Obi | Disc

Information:
The very first release of this came with a special corrugated slip cover with a RPD dog tag embedded into it. Each tag had a unique number, and I believe it was the first 5,000 units that shipped which had these dog tags. My tag is R.P.D.-04401. I actually have a non-limited version of this soundtrack as well, still in shrink wrap, which I'm saving for the day I might meet Masami Ueda.

The soundtrack is all on one disc, containing 31 tracks which is the majority of major themes in the game. The rest of the incidental music was released in late 1998 on the BioHazard 2 Complete Track OST.




Title: BIOHAZARD Drama Album ~The Fate of Raccoon City~ Vol.1 (バイオハザード~運命のラクーンシティ~ Vol.1) [CD05]

Information:
Following on from the original Machova Village drama album, the Fate of Raccoon City series follows various groups of survivors during events which transpire in the two months leading up to the viral outbreak in Raccoon City. Like the Machova Village album, the three albums released in this series were at the time considered canonical to the events; with the release of Biohazard 2 HD Remaster in the pipes the fate of these side-stories are unknown.

Volume 1 follows the story of Jane and Jim, two Raccoon City High students, who end up investigating the destroyed ruins of the Mansion after Jane and her mother, Anita, are attacked by Cerberus after sheltering in the ruins from a storm that struck while they were out for a walk through the forest.

Title: BIO HAZARD SYMPHONY Op.91 Crime and Punishment (バイオハザードシンフォニー) [CD08]
Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPCA-1010
Released: 21/08/1998
Retail: 2,100円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
This is an interesting soundtrack. It features solely the works done for the Director's Cut Dual Shock Ver. of the games. Some of the pieces are a bit hit-and-miss when you listen to them on their own, but combined with the visuals of the game really did allow for a different experience. There are two discs with this, the first being the soundtrack with its 38 tracks, and a second which contains sound effect and character voice tracks. The voice tracks are very interesting, as the third one contains some of the scrapped Japanese VA work for the game that had been done in 1996 before they'd ultimately been scrapped by the team.

Though the soundtrack has a majority of the songs used in the Dual Shock version of the game, there are still tracks that don't see the light of day on this disc. Yes, that includes the infamous Ass Trumpet Basement theme.

My favourite piece from this OST is Humanity's Demise, the opening organ piece which actually doesn't make it into the game itself. The full track name according to the booklet is 「ロ短調人類終焉ミサ曲」which translates to Humanity's Demise, Mass in B Minor. Missa, often mistranslated as Misa, is the latin word for mass.




Title: BIOHAZARD 2 Complete Track (バイオハザード2コンプリートトラック) [CD09]
Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPCA-1011
Released: 21/08/1998
Retail: 2,100円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
The cover of this is incredibly creepy, as the ear motif on it is actually embossed, giving it proper depth and texture. This soundtrack actually features 2 discs: the first contains the 42 tracks absent from the initial BioHazard 2 soundtrack, the second is a mini-disc which contains 8 sound effect tracks. Despite most of the missing tracks from BioHazard 2 being put onto this, there were still 6 vital tracks which managed to miss the cut (likely due to the fact that the 42 tracks are already pushing the limits of the CD). In addition to this, all of the Extreme Battle music was remixed, rather than having the original versions on the disc.

There is an archival release of the missing tracks here.




Title: BIOHAZARD 2 ReMIX ~met@morPhoses~ (バイオハザード2REMIX~met@morPhose~)[CD10]

Catalogue: CPCA-1027

Retail: 1,470円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
This is a strange, somewhat rare single released under Suleputter. It contains 4 tracks, which feature partial melody remixes of BioHazard 2 combined with sound-effects and voices from the game. Beast from the East contains actual recording by the VA for Chris Redfield at the time, Michael G., containing some rather disturbing messages behind them.

The remix tracks feature samples and motifs of Prologue, Raccoon City, and T-A.

A weird, but also awesome addition to the soundtrack collective.

The remix tracks feature samples and motifs of Prologue, Raccoon City, and T-A.

This is possibly the coolest version of this remix album I have ever seen -- it was the only Biohazard soundtrack released on vinyl until Biohazard 7's special 'Go Tell Aunt Rhody' release from e-Capcom in 2017. Side A has the two Beast of the East remixes, while Side B has the I'm Really Mad and BIOHAZARD tracks.




Title: BIOHAZARD 3 Original Soundtrack (バイオハザード3オリジナルサウンドトラック) [CD12]
Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPCA-1032~3
Released: 1999
Retail: 2,940円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
BioHazard 3 has one of the largest single-release soundtracks of the classic games, second to CODE: Veronica, managing a nice 85 tracks across two discs. It's also a pretty unique shelf item for me, since the case is so huge in comparison to the standard jewel cases the rest of the soundtracks are in. BioHazard 3 managed to score a Playstation case for its release, allowing for a good sized booklet to be put in there with interviews and thoughts about the soundtrack by the composers.

There are also two versions of this OST in existence. The first print of this was listed under CPCA-1030~1, featured a black-background on the cover, and came with a cloth bag and t-shirt. I own the standard release, as the limited is, surprise surprise, limited. There is no difference in the actual tracks between both releases.




Title: BIO HAZARD Orchestra Album (バイオハザードオーケストラアルバム) [CD13]
Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPCA-1034
Released: 1999

Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
In 1999, the New Japan Philharmonic held a concert featuring the works of BioHazard. This included new pieces from BioHazard 3, which at the time had only been released a month before. It was also the only BioHazard symphonic concert held in the history of the series. This has some really nice arrangements of the tracks, including a full orchestra version of The Ultimate Bio-Weapon Medley which is to die for.

A definite must-get for anyone who has an appreciation for the music of the games.

Information:
The initial CODE: Veronica OST release managed to cram 70 tracks onto one disc, with the second disc featuring jingles, voice, and SFX tracks as a bonus. I really enjoy the disc screen print featuring the Redfields in their choice colours too, it's rather striking and makes the fact the CD doesn't come with a back plate for the case just as interesting showing off the discs in all their glory.

Information:
The Complete version of the CODE: Veronica soundtrack collective. This OST racks in an impressive 94 tracks across two discs. This OST has been a personal favourite of mine for many years, with great atmospheric pieces and thrilling battle themes, all of which are completely and uniquely CODE: Veronica.

To me, CODE: Veronica's soundtrack is one of the pinnacles of the series, only surpassed by Biohazard 2, with clever use of atmosphere, thematics, and drama.

Scans: Insert Front | Insert Back | Obi | Disc

Information:
Gun Survivor 4 has a wickedly good OST, but the oddball for it is the ED song which was heavily used for promotional videos and the staff roll, which was RIZE's track GunShot. It got a pretty awesome shot of the 091 Tyrant for the main cover, and the disc features two other tracks from the artist.

Pretty catchy! It's kind of a shame the original track that was penned for the staff roll wasn't used, but it thankfully got a release of its own [CD00].

Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
The Japanese press of the first movie OST. Asides from having an obi with listing of the track names in Japanese, a different catalogue number, and a parental advisory on the cover due to language in the songs, it's the same as the release made in the US. Although, the print of the booklet is of a much higher quality with richer pigment. Go figure?




Title: BIOHAZARD Outbreak Original Soundtrack (バイオハザード アウトブレイク オリジナルサウンドトラック) [CD18]

Catalogue: KICA-1324
Released: 25/02/2004
Retail: 2,730円
Scans: Slipcase Front | Slipcase Back | Booklet | Sample Page | Obi | Disc |

Information:
The soundtrack to Outbreak is something utterly wondrous with its sweeping orchestral opening, subtle series flashbacks via leitmotifs and even full on arrangements, and a recurring melody for the series that defined it as its own. It also was the first title in the series to feature actual orchestral music from a live studio, with other series titles relying on synth and samples alone.

The soundtrack for Outbreak is notoriously hard to find -- if found with its slipcase and obi it often calls for a very high price. It also was very heavily bootlegged on places like eBay, making official releases even rarer again due to the saturation of the bootlegs. New Years auction sale perusing saw me nab this after 5+ years of actively hunting for a copy that was actually under $150 for a change (and $50 was a steal for me, honestly!)

The soundtrack only covers tracks from the first Outbreak game, with none of File 2's tracks seeing official OST release.

Information:
A neat little single released in 2005 to promote Biohazard 4. It only features two tracks, one is a medley of various tunes from in the game, and the second is a really spicy remix of The Drive which is quite fun to listen to. A small addition, but a neat one nonetheless.

Information:
Limited to only 3,000 in the world, the Sound Chronicle Best Box is highly sought after. It's also one of the most bootlegged albums you can find for Biohazard on the cesspool that is eBay next to Outbreak's OST. Released as a commemorative OST, the box contains a whopping six discs with excerpts from Biohazard 2, Biohazard 3, the newly released Biohazard Ø and gamecube remake of Biohazard, and Biohazard 4. It should be noted that this is the only soundtrack out in Japan officially with tracks from Ø or Rebirth that aren't remixed. The box also comes with a booklet which features interviews and insights from the large roster of composers the series has had over the years.

This box is seriously black. Black everywhere. It's very difficult to keep it beautifully pristine outside of handling it with gloves due to this. The jewel cases for the games are even solid black, and instead of featuring an insert for the disc inside, it is instead printed on the top plastic case in metallic silver. All in all, a very beautiful and rare collection piece that I am honoured to have. Just recently, it was reissued for the 15th anniversary, with no changes, asides from adding more of them to the roster. As of the time of writing, I do not know how many there now exist.

This was a very special gift from Kyu.

Information:
Perhaps the most bizarre release in terms of OST for the series yet. Biohazard 4's full two disc soundtrack was only available through this special book, which not only has notes from the game director in it, but is a complete 48 page artbook for the development of the game. All other iterations and re-issues of the Biohazard 4 soundtrack tend to gloss over a number of ambience tracks that are otherwise only found on this specific release of the OST.

Retail: 2,100円
Scans: Booklet | Back | Insert | Sample Page | Obi | Disc

Information:
The glorious sole reason for having this CD in my Biohazard collection is for track 6 on this disc, which it titled 'Heroes Never Die'. According to the write up by sanodg in the booklet:

This is a vocal arrangement of the save room music for use in the staff roll. Due to a number of circumstances this recording only ended up in the European version of the game*. Raj Ramayya of The Beautiful Losers, who also is the voice of the game's hero, was in charge of the vocals. His sweet voice matches perfectly with the music.

I find it really interesting that it's said European versions are meant to have this song, but not a single copy I've seen has it unless it made it onto a very, very early pressing of some discs, but it's more likely it was just cut entirely. A shame as it's really gorgeous!

Title: BIOHAZARD The Umbrella Chronicles Original Soundtrack (バイオハザードアンブレラクロニクルズオリジナルサウンドトラック) [CD24]
Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPCA-10191
Released: 19/12/2007
Retail: 3,000円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
Umbrella Chronicles has a soundtrack that is quite different compared to the rest of the gaming series. The soundtrack is, in essence, a major compilation track run featuring many remixed and re-realised pieces from previous Biohazard games. A lot of the tracks feature combined genre, mixing elements of electronica with orchestra, and the likes. Certainly very fitting for the gameplay style. I wish the soundtrack had longer cuts of some of its 100% original pieces, though, such as the main theme for the game which is longer than the OST cut. All in all, a good OST.




Title: BIOHAZARD Pachi-Slot Original Soundtrack (パチスロバイオハザードオリジナルサウンドトラック) [CD25]
Publisher: YAMASA
Catalogue: PLN-3
Released: 06/08/2008
Retail: 3,000円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
Well this is... a weird one. A bit of history for you: Pachinko, or Pachi-Slot machines are a gambling machine over in Japan. There are Pachi-Slot parlours everywhere, in every city. In 2006, a BioHazard themed one was released, and they actually released the soundtrack for it physically.

Its got some pretty awesome tracks on it composed by Satoshi Ise. Some of them honestly sound like they would have fit right into the Umbrella Chronicles scheme of things, and some of them are genuine remixes or re-synths of the original tracks from the 1996 game. In fact, the track Unknown Fear I uses a Beta/Unused piece of music! How's that for left field?




Title: biohazard DEGENERATION Original Soundtrack (バイオハザードディジェネレーションオリジナルサウンドトラック) [CD26]
Publisher: avex trax
Catalogue: AVCD-23725/B
Released: 17/12/2008
Retail: 3,900円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
I'm quite fond of the soundtrack to Degeneration. The soundtrack features the full orchestral score for the film, in addition to the film edit of Guilty, the credits theme. The style of the soundtrack calls to mind Umbrella Chronicles, with the occasional mix electronica-orchestra track driving the score. This was a lovely and lucky score in Book-Off in Ikebukuro for me while travelling in 2011. Go figure, the only Biohazard soundtrack they had in their section and it was one I was missing. The back of the case has some fracture damage, but its not that hard to replace despite it being a gargantuan sized case (its a PSX case, much like Biohazard 3's case.)

The second disc to this is a DVD, featuring trailers from Degen as well as a couple of the games in the series.

Title: BIOHAZARD The Darkside Chronicles Original Soundtrack (バイオハザードダークサイドクロニクルズオリジナルサウンドトラック) [CD30]
Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPDA-10213~4
Released: 27/01/2010
Retail: 3,000円
Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
66 of the most amazing tracks I have ever heard. Darkside's score is second to none, and features some of the best arrangements of classic tracks from Biohazard 2 and CODE:Veronica out there, in addition to beefing them out with original tracks for both the South American sections of the games, and new battle thematic work for the Birkin forms and Steve. When I first heard the new rendition of Alexia's battle themes I legit started to cry.

I suppose the only downside/fallback to the soundtrack is that not all of the orchestral pieces are actually orchestra. The digital tracks are easy to pick against the full orchestra counterparts, but its a small, SMALL detractor, and really it ends up just making an interesting comparison. Spread across two discs, and recorded in such high quality, this is one to not miss.




Title: LAW'S -BioHazard The Darkside Chronicles Edition- (LAW'Sバイオハザードダークサイドクロニクルズ) [CD31]
Publisher: avex trax

Scans: Front, Back etc

Information:
The Darkside Chronicles edition release of LAW'S. LAW'S was used as the CM theme in Japan for promotion Darkside. The DVD included with this version has the CM along with a live performance of LAW'S. Nothing much else to say. LAW'S is just your typical J-Rock track, but it certainly is nice.

Publisher: Suleputter (セルピュータ)
Catalogue: CPCA-10241~6

Retail: 8,190円
Scans: Box Front | Box Back | Booklet | Sample Page | Disc 1 Cover | Disc 2 Cover | Disc 3 Cover | Disc 4 Cover | Disc 5 Cover | Disc 6 Cover | Disc(s)

Information:
Released as a commemorative OST for the 15th anniversary, the box contains a whopping six discs with the full Umbrella Chronicles, and Darkside Chronicles soundtracks, in addition to having a best track selection from Biohazard 5, Biohazard 5 Alternate Edition, and The Mercenaries 3D. While its nice to have a rehash of the Chronicles soundtracks, its superb to have the final pieces of the digital version puzzle with the Bio5 tracks (Chris's Arrival, Pray) in addition to most of the Alternative Edition tracks. Being given an insight into the frenzy of Mercenaries 3D early is quite a treat, as well. Lots of brilliant pieces on this, and I'm really glad I own this.

Much like the very original Sound Chronicle, the box is black meets black with a side of black. Instead of silver flashing in the text and printed onto the plastic of the jewel cases, we've got a very sparkly gold. Just as much a fingerprint and dust magnet as its predecessor.

Catalogue: CPDA-10077
Released: 23/05/2013
Retail: 3,900円
Scans: Slipcase Front | Slipcase Back | Insert Front | Insert Back | Obi | Disc

Information:
This unique disc is a bit hard to come by -- it was released as an e-Capcom exclusive for the Unveiled Edition when it first came out and could only be gotten via pre-orders of the game from their store. It also later came bundled from e-Capcom if you bought the PS3 The Best edition of the game, which had another bonus with it in the form of the Biohazard Archives Chris & Jill special file. The price in the above RRP is from Capcom's initial release of it.

The soundtrack came with a leather BSAA card case as well, because why not.

I'm not the biggest fan of the arrangements of Deep Sea and Falling Chorus on this single, mostly because the faux-childlike femme vocals do nothing for the power of the originals, but the arrangements of Revelations and O Vendetta Di Dio are stunning. Very neat little set of mixes.




Title: Biohazard HD Remaster Complete Soundtrack (バイオハザード完全サウンドトラックHD REMASTER Ver.) [CD39]
Publisher: Capcom (カプコン)
Catalogue: CPCS-01103
Released: 20/01/2015
Retail: Not For Sale
Scans: Cover | Disc

Information:
In comparison to the, at the time, only other official release of the 2002 Remake soundtrack which had 44 tracks, the HD soundtrack release clocks in at 60 and fills the gap in regards to missing tracks. There is a downside to this release and that is knowing that the sound team had issues with the HD release in terms of lost tracks from their assets library requiring them to source them elsewhere, combined with issues stemming from the codec which resulted in some tracks being played too fast.

Still is nice having them collated on a disc, despite its issues.




Title: DIR EN GREY x BIOHAZARD Revelations 2 ‎– Revelation of mankind (ディル・アン・グレイxバイオハザード リベレーションズ2 「Revelation of mankind」) [CD40]
Publisher: Firewall Div
Catalogue: SFBD-0060
Released: 2015
Retail: Not For Sale
Scans: Disc

Information:
Though this is super technically a DVD, and only has the video of the full MV mixed with scenes from Revelations 2, it was the only release for this track outside of Dir En Grey's actual albums; no special single like RIZE or LAW's. Details on how to obtain the DVD are as below:

To celebrate the release of the Music Clip Collection Blu-ray & DVD “Average Sorrow” on April 1, 2015 and in tie with the special bonus campaign launched via the Special Limited Version “ARCHE” (SFCD-0136~138/SFCD-0139~141), we will be giving out a special gift to all who send in their application to us. For those who would like to receive the gift please check the flyer that is included in the Initial Limited Version Music Clip Collection Blu-ray & DVD “Average Sorrow” for details.


People had to send in an application from their Average Sorrow release to possibly get this in return through the post. Pretty cool.

Title: ACTION FIGURE SERIES Biohazard 2 Leon S. Kennedy 1/12 Scale (アクションフィギュアシリーズ・バイオハザード2 LEON 1/12) [FM01]
Released: 1998
Manufacturer: Yutaka (ユタカ)
Retail: N/A
Size: 5.9"/15cm

Information:
One of many subsidiaries of Bandai, Yutaka was known for the production of low-end budget figures with a mixture of moulded pieces and fabric clothing for their human releases. This was one of Leon's first figure releases, coming complete with a fabric RPD uniform and a plastic sprue with a number of weapons that could be obtained throughout the game: Remington M1100-P, H&K VP70, Desert Eagle .50AE, and the Submachine Gun.

Being a budget series figure it has some pretty hilarious face sculpting, complete with Leon's signature CG 'fishy lips', but it is pretty hard to come by these days complete.




Title: Capcom Figure Builder Creator's Model: Biohazard Jill Valentine Revelations Ver. Enamel White Edition (カプコンフィギュアビルダー クリエイターズモデル バイオハザード ジル・バレンタイン リベレーションズ Ver. エナメルホワイトエディション) [FM02]
Released: 27/11/2014
Manufacturer: Capcom (株式会社カプコン)
Retail: N/A
Size: 7.8"/20cm

Information:
The second figure released for the Biohazard Lottery that was run in 2014 -- this enamel white edition of the Jill figure was listed as the 'Survivor Prize', or what is usually called the 'Last One Prize' in most Ichiban Kuji releases, meaning you had to draw the very last prize of the lotto to get a chance at the figure.

It has the same mould as the A Prize Jill, just in a pearly white enamel. Kind of a shame they didn't go for a lamé or kirakira finish, but it still is pretty amazing and stands out starkly amongst others.

Also: that name is a mouthful even in Japanese.




Title: Nendoroid Chris Redfield 20th Anniversary Commemorative Version (ねんどろいど クリス・レッドフィールド20周年記念版ロゴ入り特製台座)[FM03]
Released: 03/2017
Manufacturer: Good Smile Company (グッドスマイルカンパニー)
Retail: 4,700円
Size: 3.9"/10cm

Information:
The BEST figure, hands down. I do recall squealing quite loudly over a Discord call to friends when the announcement came from the 2016 World Hobby Fair Autumn catalogues, because I never thought that good ol' Biohazard would get a Nendo at any point.

Chris comes with a crapton of goodies -- given the version I got was the first run, it comes with a special 20th Anniversary logo pedestal. He also packs a rocket launcher, his Samurai Edge, a green herb, and a knife. Chris also has a battle-face face plate, and even little rockets that can be added to the launcher for it to be 'in use'. Orders done through Good Smile Company direct also got a Red Herb, which I didn't receive since I went through tried and true AmiAmi.

An absolute favourite. I really hope they do more, as I'd especially love to see Claire get a Nendo to go with her brother!




Title: POP Games: Resident Evil Tyrant (POP! バイオハザード タイラント) [FM02]
Released: 2017
Manufacturer: Funko (ファンコ)
Retail: $29.95
Size: 5.9"/15cm

Information:
I am not a huge fan of the Funko Pop figures in the slightest, given the very cut and paste nature of their stylings and how prevalent they are in the figure industry to a point of over-saturation, but I could not bypass the Biohazard releases because they are the first Western release figures for the series since the days of NECA.

The Tyrant I have is the glow in the dark variant, which its only difference is: it glows in the dark! He's a hefty Pop as both the Tyrant and the Hunter releases were done as oversized DX ones.




Title: POP Games: Resident Evil Hunter (POP! バイオハザード ハンター) [FM02]
Released: 2017
Manufacturer: Funko (ファンコ)
Retail: $29.95
Size: 5.9"/15cm

Information:
I am not a huge fan of the Funko Pop figures in the slightest, given the very cut and paste nature of their stylings and how prevalent they are in the figure industry to a point of over-saturation, but I could not bypass the Biohazard releases because they are the first Western release figures for the series since the days of NECA.

I think the Hunter and Licker POP figures were the best of the releases, but it is hard to find a hunter without mangled claws given their packaging. Thankfully I got creme of the crop when I hunted (heh) mine down. I do love his dorky toothy grin.




Title: POP Games: Resident Evil Nemesis (POP! バイオハザード ネメシス) [FM02]
Released: 2017
Manufacturer: Funko (ファンコ)
Retail: $29.95
Size: 3.5"/9cm

Information:
I am not a huge fan of the Funko Pop figures in the slightest, given the very cut and paste nature of their stylings and how prevalent they are in the figure industry to a point of over-saturation, but I could not bypass the Biohazard releases because they are the first Western release figures for the series since the days of NECA.

Good ol' Nemesis, complete with Rocket Launcher. Thanks to his stocky feet he balances fairly well which is a pleasant change, and thanks to how Nemesis' facial features are he lacks the cut and paste aspect of most Funkos thanks to unique sculpting.




Title: POP Games: Resident Evil Licker (POP! バイオハザード リッカー) [FM02]
Released: 2017
Manufacturer: Funko (ファンコ)
Retail: $29.95
Size: 3.5"/9cm

Information:
I am not a huge fan of the Funko Pop figures in the slightest, given the very cut and paste nature of their stylings and how prevalent they are in the figure industry to a point of over-saturation, but I could not bypass the Biohazard releases because they are the first Western release figures for the series since the days of NECA.

The Licker is probably my favourite of the series to be honest. It's cute, has adorable claws, and an eerie grin only a series fan could appreciate.




Title: POP Games: Resident Evil Jill Valentine (POP! バイオハザード ジル・バレンタイン) [FM02]
Released: 2017
Manufacturer: Funko (ファンコ)
Retail: $29.95
Size: 3.5"/9cm

Information:
I am not a huge fan of the Funko Pop figures in the slightest, given the very cut and paste nature of their stylings and how prevalent they are in the figure industry to a point of over-saturation, but I could not bypass the Biohazard releases because they are the first Western release figures for the series since the days of NECA.

And we're down to the two most lacklustre releases of the set: the humans. Jill comes equipped with her signature Samurai Edge beretta, and requires a stand due to head/body ratio making her unable to balance on her own.




Title: POP Games: Resident Evil Leon S. Kennedy (POP! バイオハザード レオン・S・ケネディ) [FM02]
Released: 2017
Manufacturer: Funko (ファンコ)
Retail: $29.95
Size: 3.5"/9cm

Information:
I am not a huge fan of the Funko Pop figures in the slightest, given the very cut and paste nature of their stylings and how prevalent they are in the figure industry to a point of over-saturation, but I could not bypass the Biohazard releases because they are the first Western release figures for the series since the days of NECA.

And we're down to the two most lacklustre releases of the set: the humans. Leon is armed with a shotgun and dons his Biohazard 4 attire, complete with vest. Though he has thicker legs/feet in his moulding he does like to fall over a lot due to head/body ratio. I just love that they didn't even try to compete with Nendoroid by making a Chris, given he'd.. look exactly the same as Leon for the most part without being anywhere near as cute.

Title: BioHazard 2 Bullet Keychain (バイオハザード2特製弾丸キーホルダー) [OI01]
Released: 1998
Retail: Not For Sale

Information:
A surprisingly rare little trinket. This was a pre-order bonus given away to customers who pre-ordered BioHazard 2. It's a proper, solid metal keychain that weighs 18 grams. I'm quite lucky to have two in my possession, one which was purchased, the other given to me as a gift from Kefka that was sent with the Infants music box.




Title: BioHazard CODE:Veronica Let Me Live Plaque (バイオハザードコード:ベロニカ「レット・ミー・リッヴ」記念碑) [OI02]
Released: 2000
Retail: Not For Sale

Information:
Another surprisingly rare little trinket. This was a pre-order bonus given away to customers who pre-ordered CODE:Veronica on the Dreamcast. There are two versions that are in circulation: the ones done solely for game pre-orders which have a limited number issued in the box it comes in, or the version given away with the special Veronica Model Dreamcasts [HA01] which has no unique ID in the box as they share the limited issue of the consoles in question.

One side is embellished with Claire's Let Me Live logo and moniker, while the back has her Rockfort Island prison ID stamped into it: WKD4496. Surprisingly weighty, too.




Title: BioHazard CODE:Veronica Infants Music Box (バイオハザードコード:ベロニカ オルゴールアシュフォード) [OI03]
Released: 2000
Retail: Unknown/Not For Sale

Information:
I'd never expected to ever own this. It's what I had considered my Holy Grail of BioHazard collecting, after searching for it for a good 8 years. It was through a combination of good timing and love that I acquired mine. chariflame IM'ed me one morning saying she'd found it while searching for some rare Metal Gear Solid stuff from the same seller, and I reached out to organise finances -- then it was confirmed mine.

From what little information I have from books and other things, this was released in 2000 as a commemorative piece for the 5th Anniversary as well as the release of CODE:Veronica in Japan in collaboration with J.T.O Japan (who manufactured it.) It doesn't seem to have been sold in stores, so was likely either a mail-in purchase, or a competition item. We also know there are very few of them in the world. I know I'm certainly the only one in the Southern Hemisphere with one.

While the music box plaque says it's playing 'Infants', it's really playing a track called 'Ashford's Music Box'. This track was exclusive to the Complete Soundtrack released in 2001 under the name 'オルゴールアシュフォード邸バージョン', which translates to 'Ashford's Orgel Residence Version' (Orgel being the Dutch word for Music Box). This track is a shortened loop of Infants that is played when in Alfred and Alexia's bedrooms in the Private Residence. You can view a video I made of the music box in action here.

This is truly an amazing item to have, and I urge any BioHazard/Resident Evil collector to try and get one if they show up.




Title: Biohazard 5th Anniversary Special Package 'Nightmare Returns' (バイオハザード5周年記念スペシャルパッケージ「ナイトメア リターンズ」) [OI04]
Released: 22/03/2001
Retail: 28,000円

Information:
07699/10000 -- the limited number my case has. Never thought I'd get a chance to own this, and yet here we are. Scored this via trawling Yahoo Japan during new years and the big clean outs that often happen as a result of the new year, and all due to the fact it has a small hole in the handle that can easily be epoxy resin filled/painted/sanded it came to me at under $100.

Complete.

The Nightmare Returns package is a centrepiece in itself -- modelled after the duralumin case from CODE: Veronica, embellished with a special crow + eye heraldry for the anniversary. The case opens up to reveal a pocket with stunning reprints of the Playstation-era game manuals in a thick non-gloss stock, a special pen, dog tag with the serial ID printed on it, ring, coin, and keychain.

In the bottom half of the case there is another collective of goods: a special game case with new press release of Biohazard 1-3 (complete with new screen printing on the discs unique to the 5th anniversary), a copy of CODE: Veronica Complete for PS2, and the Wesker's Report DVD. A stunning item that is a must-have if you can find it at an affordable price. Thankfully with 10,000 of them made they aren't awfully rare, but that doesn't stop people from price gouging.

It's hard to categorise this item - it has parts that go across all areas, but the main components are best seen here. You can see the games in more detail over at here [PS12] and here [PS01].




Title: BioHazard 4 Metal Gun Collection Hand Gun (メタルガンコレクションハンドガン) [OI05]
Released: 2005
Retail: Not For Sale

Information:
These are a really neat promotional item given away with copies of the PS2 release of BioHazard 4 in Japan. There were four in the series, the Hand Gun, Black Tail, Red 9 and the Magnum. All are made of die-cast metal and have moving or removable parts. These are technically the only guns made for BioHazard I can legally have in Australia since I don't own a fire-arms license to import the air soft replicas. The Hand Gun features a plastic ammo clip which can be loaded and unloaded.




Title: BioHazard 4 Metal Gun Collection Red9 (メタルガンコレクションレッド9) [OI06]
Released: 2005
Retail: Not For Sale

Information:
These are a really neat promotional item given away with copies of the PS2 release of BioHazard 4 in Japan. There were four in the series, the Hand Gun, Black Tail, Red 9 and the Magnum. All are made of die-cast metal and have moving or removable parts. These are technically the only guns made for BioHazard I can legally have in Australia since I don't own a fire-arms license to import the air soft replicas. The Red9 features 7 bullets which can be loaded into the main barrel.




Title: BioHazard 4 Metal Gun Collection Magnum (メタルガンコレクションマグナム) [OI07]
Released: 2005
Retail: Not For Sale

Information:
These are a really neat promotional item given away with copies of the PS2 release of BioHazard 4 in Japan. There were four in the series, the Hand Gun, Black Tail, Red 9 and the Magnum. All are made of die-cast metal and have moving or removable parts. These are technically the only guns made for BioHazard I can legally have in Australia since I don't own a fire-arms license to import the air soft replicas. The Magnum features a proper spinning barrel which can be taken out if you open the gun, as if you were loading rounds into it.




Title: Darkside Chronicles Bullet Charm Strap (バイオハザード銃弾型チャーム付き合皮ストラップ) [OI08]
Released: 2010
Retail: Not For Sale

Information:
This nifty charm strap is a throw-back to the BioHazard 2 strap from 1998, and was given away only with e-Capcom orders of Darkside Chronicles Special Edition. The bullet is actually a replica of Annette's Anti-BOW one from the Memories of a Lost City scenario with BIOHAZARD stamped on it, and is surprisingly heavy. While it's listed as a Not For Sale, e-Capcom did sell the straps on their website for one week for a whopping 4,500円 individually. Thank goodness mine came with my game.

Biohazard: CAW!

Other: Custom/Unofficial Items



This is a very specific section, which features a home for anything custom made I've had done for the series. Since they are classed as an unofficial item, anything I have in my collection which is fanmade outside of doujinshi live here. For the most part, this section will house any custom sculptures or plush I've had made, and I will try to segregate everything by item type, like the other official items sections. Since most of these items are one of a kind, I won't be as pedantic about trying to group order them by date of creation (just year made instead) since it's easier to keep track that way.

If you'd like to find a specific item quickly, please utilise the code issued by the item's name in the index by searching for it with ctrl+f in your browser.

Alex Wesker Art Print signed by Elaine Hendrix [CU03]


Title: Mr. Crow Custom Plush (「ミスター・カラス」 手作りぬいぐるみ) [CU01]
Artist: Junoluver
Year Made: 2011

Information:
This little guy is such a darling custom plush. A combination of right place, right time, and an urge to get a custom done. Mr. Crow is modelled, of course, on the zombified crows from the franchise. Crows have been in pretty much every version of the game in some way, shape, or form. I still think I love their grand spook entrance in Bio2 the most, and the way they'd all sit there and eyeball you in the painting puzzle room of the Spencer Mansion while crooning and cawing was pretty impacting when I first played.

He even comes with a severed arm, like the infamous Bio2 artwork has! A brilliant, beautiful custom which I will forever cherish.




Title: Mr. Crow Bell Plush (「ミスター・カラス」 鈴なりB.O.W. ぬいぐるみ) [CU02]
Artist: Norkia
Year Made: 2013

Information:
Bell plush, known as suzunari plush in Japan, were a neat line of limited plush made by Banpresto in 1997 that featured almost all of the original 151 Pokemon in a simplified chibi form, a hang string, and a little bell. I've always really loved these kinds of plush, and a fair few custom artists began doing their own bell plush of later generation Pokemon. solbraves easily has some of the best out there -- true to the classic style, even with the original kind of crushed pane fabric, and meticulous detail work. I knew that I wanted to get a bell plush Mr. Crow for sure, and when a slot opened I snagged it.

Being a bell plush this Mr. Crow custom stands just over an inch tall, and has stiff felt wings, feet, and tail, felt eyes with hand painted details, black crushed pane for his body, and grey crushed pane for his beak. He also has a few dry brushed splotches of blood detailed delicately over his body to slam dunk the character detail down to perfection. The finishing touch and signature of this plush is the bright red bell atop his head.

Title: Alex Wesker Art Print signed by Elaine Hendrix (「アレックス・ウェスカー」アートワークのエレイン・ヘンドリクスサイン入り) [CU03]
Artist: Myself
Year Made: 2015

Information:
Revelations 2 is a game that has essentially left a very major impact on my life, and it really pulled me through (and continues to do so) a very rough time with my mental and physical health. I was overjoyed when a very good friend of mine found out that Elaine Hendrix was indeed the face model and mo-cap actress of Alex Wesker in this new instalment to the series, announced by herself once the game was finally out, and her announcement came with a contest: to draw fan-art of Alex Wesker.

Of course I entered -- I was inspired, very enamoured with the character, and so I wanted to do my best to immortalise Elaine as Alex in my own style! (You can see an upload of the art here + pixiv.)

While there were only three winners of the grand prize, which was a signed copy of Revelations 2 from Elaine herself, she asked all entrants to send her their address so she could send them something special for participating.

I didn't win, but this special surprise is just as good as winning to me, honestly. I'm incredibly honoured that the Alex herself approves of this art!

A print I will for sure be framing in due time.
