I acquired a couple CDs from Japan and I figured I'll add them to my blog. The last but not the least is a special compilation of songs featured in the Monogatari franchise.
Monogatari is a huge franchise. The story written by Nisioisin and adapted by studio Shaft and Aniplex has created a huge outcome to the anime industry. The franchise is still on-going with tons of anime seasons covering each arc in the best way possible I suppose. Utamonogatari is the name of this particular compilation, covering all of the songs featured from Bakemonogatari, Nisemonogatari, Nekomonogatari Black and Monogatari series: Second Season.
The limited edition set is packaged with 3 CD cases housed inside a transparent plastic cover. Each CD case covers a disc; Case 1 features the songs from the First Season (Bake, Nise, Neko Black), Case 2 features the songs from the Second Season (Neko White, Kabuki, Otori, Oni, Koi, Hana), and Case 3 features a DVD (or Blu-ray if you found that out of print version) with textless songs. The DVD is locked to Region 2. Each side of the case features one of the characters from the series.

This album is only available via physical disc as far as I'm aware, but there's enough stock around for the standard edition. The limited edition Blu-ray is out of print but the DVD version is still around for now.
Anywho, now for the photos. I'm splitting this up into a few sections.
Section A - the outer packaging
Section B - Case 1
Section C - Case 2
Section D - Case 3
And since you can switch the CD Case positions...
