Chic Pixel's 2nd Annual Holiday Giveaway


In honor of the holiday season, I have some exciting news! I have not one, but two awesome prizes to give away to my readers! All you have to do is comment on this post and let me know which prize you'd like to go in the drawing for:


1) A copy of Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary 
This is a Japanese game, so all text is in Japanese, but it should be relatively straightforward if you're familiar with Puyo Puyo or don't mind fumbling around until you get the hang of things. Remember, it's playable on all DS and 3DS models regardless of region (3DS is only region-locked for 3DS games). I absolutely love the Puyo Puyo games and this one is chock-full of content! (not to mention it's drop-dead adorable)


2) A copy of Manga: An Anthology of Global and Cultural Perspectives
This is a great book for anyone interested in manga from a more academic perspective. Essays cover a wide range of subjects from Osamu Tezuka to Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, but my personal favorite is a piece titled "The 'Beautiful Boy' in Japanese Girl's Manga" by the wonderful Mark McLelland. Please be considerate of others who may wish to use this resource for academic purposes when choosing this option!

The giveaway will be open until January 4th at 9 pm EST, which may sound like a long time, but I'll be away on vacation until then and won't be able to send out the prizes any sooner. Sorry!

For an additional entry, tweet about the contest and leave a comment here with a link to your tweet so I know you've done so! Participation is open to anyone in the world.

Best of luck to everyone who enters!

Oh I would loooove to get one of the two prizes (I would not mind which one because both seem to be great!) but I live in Germany so... I don't know if that's a problem :/ But have a nice vacation Anne!

It's no problem! I'm willing to ship anywhere in the world. I think the majority of people who've already entered aren't in Australia anyway! Just let me know which prize you'd like :) Remember you can always tweet for an extra entry (just send me the link)

Lizzi said...

Alright if I have to choose I would take PuyoPuyo I guess.:)

Awesome! Let me join the swarm of people throwing their hat into the ring for the copy of Puyo Puyo, Anne. Oh, and I'll tweet about it in a bit, too. I'll share the link as soon as it's up! Anyway, thanks for doing this :)

Ash said...

I'd like a shot at the copy of Manga, please. ^_^ Happy Holidays, and thanks for the running the giveaway! (I also tweeted here: https://twitter.com/PhoenixTerran/status/279283154433490944)

thegaygamer.com said...

Just tweeted about the giveaway, Anne. Sadly, I don't know how to share the link here :| I mentioned you in it, though, so hopefully you saw it?

apricotsushi said...

Oh, someone else for Manga! You've got good chances for that one ;)

apricotsushi said...

Don't worry, I got it! Best of luck :)

apricotsushi said...

2 for Puyo Puyo! Thanks!

apricotsushi said...

You're welcome! The BL article is a fun read, and there's another piece on gender and sexuality in manga that I'd bet you'd like :)

thegaygamer.com said...

Great! Thanks :)

Morgan Sleeper said...

If I still can, I'd love to enter for PuyoPuyo! One of my favourite puzzle series, and I've never played a DS version!

apricotsushi said...

Sure, the contest is open until January 4th, so I'll happily add an entry for you for Puyo Puyo. Remember, if you have a Twitter account you can tweet about the contest for an additional entry! Just let me know if you do so :)

Morgan Sleeper said...

Awesome! Thanks!! =)

I'd like to enter for the Puyo Puyo, Anne! It would be boorish of me to get an extra entry with a tweet as I only have 5 followers on my little-used Twitter account.

Kaze said...

Hello! Sorry I'm kind of a lurker on your blog, but if it's ok I'd like to enter for a chance at the Puyo Puyo 20th Anniversary for DS! ^^

apricotsushi said...

Thanks for entering! I'll be announcing the winners soon :D
