Default Kanon Standard Edition (All Ages) - some questions

Are there any compelling reasons (hardware/OS compatibility, script changes) to buy the Standard Edition over the original all ages release? Also, does the new version ship in a large box or just a DVD case?

There aren't any major script changes as far as I'm aware, but the Standard Edition runs without the problems the older versions tend to have on Windows XP.

I haven't seen the packaging myself, but I'm led to believe that it's just a DVD case. There certainly aren't any extras that'd require a large box.

To downsize boxes is good thing. *As averting eyes from the heap of boxes*

The Standard Edition does come in a cardboard box, albeit a small one. It's about the size of a DVD case, though almost twice as thick (i.e. the semi-standard modern small game box size). Inside, the game DVD is packed in a normal CD-size jewel case.

It just occured to me that we actually had a picture buried in one of the earlier threads.

I'm surprised his picture hasn't made nijiura yet =P
Let us reflect upon the bountiful wisdom of サナララ at this point:

Heh, forgot that picture was still lurking about. The Standard Edition for All Ages indeed comes in a small cardboard box, about the dimensions of a DVD case, although twice as thick. Inside, the box comes the DVD in a plain, art-less jewel case (boo! hiss!) although the art on the DVD is quite nice. Also included are an instruction/character profile book, the obligatory comment card found in every Japanese game, CD, book, or packaged foodstuffs you will ever buy, a small Technical Manual for any problems you might have installing or running the game, a small flyer advertising Key's other games as well as Key Sounds label releases, and my favorite, an Ayu trading card for some collectable card game - Lycee or something like that. I'm not sure if Ayu's in all the games or if they mix up the girls.

Thank you for the picture, I'm in mid-Kyushu right now and looking for Kanon (although I can't find it anywhere).

Maybe it helps if you run around with a sign with something similar to that on it:
助けて呉れ!カノン~Standard Edition~(18禁反)を購入致したいのですが。店へ指揮為さり下さいませんか
(吾儕は異人で御座る)
...or just find a proper shop ;). It should also be available in kyuushuu, obviously. If it's not then it could be that it's already become unavailable...I mean it's been over half a year and shops might tend to take it out of their sortiment (though I don't think kanon would vanish that quickly from their shelves..)

I finally found it in Fukuoka... guess the store? Gamers, of course! They also stock Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou as a large part of a small manga shelf. Errr... they did, anyway, before I got through with them.

If you ever go to Japan, find the nearest Gamers near where you will stay. This is a little oasis from the bustle of Japanese life.

Description as above is correct-- the "standard edition" was underwhelming, but at least it will work, and it's surprisingly cheap and bugfree, and I can get it through customs. Hell, I even want to buy Lysee packs just to knock down the Leaf and AliceSoft fanboys (Piro?) with my superior deck. Now I will patiently wait for a full translation, RealLive patch, and xclannad completion, all of which in my imagination happen at the same time six months from now.

Excellent, another Standard Edition owner. The desire is spreading! I shall call us Legion, for we are many!
