Guess what I have in my hands???

Actually, I have a few things, including the Bakemonogatari Nendoroid Puchi Sono Ichi that I fangirled about here...

==========

However, what has me really jumping up and down in glee is the following little booklet...

...for it contains the Seven Days side story: Thursday Night!

I learnt about the Thursday Night Bangaihen probably around six weeks ago, when I came across a Chinese scanlation. Of course, I then made it my mission to track down a Japanese copy...which proved tricky since I had no idea how it had been published/distributed in the first place. Thankfully, Yahoo Auctions proved its worth once again when I finally came across this auction. But even I wasn't willing to pay ~$100 for it!


And as a matter of fact, it looks like I wasn't the only one, for this other copy went for ~$75 about two weeks ago!

But luckily for me, I'd just about given up on finding a reasonably priced copy on YA, especially since Seven Days just seems to be getting more and more popular with each passing day:

(Admittedly, the disappearance of Cyberphase probably has a lot to do with this particular insanity...)

Looking around, I found a couple of copies of the premium booklet on Mandarake, though still for the rather hefty price of ~$50 including postage. Way better than $75 though! Now I just have to hope that I don't regret it!

ho, this short extra is my favorite so far
I immediately went to moe mood when I saw Seryou's reaction, how cute and innocent, I want to tease him more *smirk evilly*
even so, that price really scares me (;°Д°). Talk about otakuness, should I be happy when I see someone crazier than me xD

*moe* for a guy, huh...but sooooo true! (^^;) He's just soooo innocent, like a lot of the girls at that school! Sheltered rich kid syndrome? ( ̄▽ ̄)

You mean the CDs? yeah...I've set limits for myself, but they keep going over them!

13 550Y is really expensive huh
I actually want to ask if BLCDs are rare or something. Many on yahoo auction have pretty high prices
Manga in general are reprinted when they're out of stock, I thought it was the same with other goodies

yeah, especially considering the originals cost around 3000 yen each...

Actually, what's happened here is that Cyberphase, the company that produced the CDs, has collapsed...(source, Japanese)

・(株)サイバーフェイズは2010年3月末で倒産。
・原盤の権利等について見通しが立たない状況。
・今現在市場に出ている分がなくなったら、購入できなくなる可能性が大である。

so I'm guessing that everyone's going crazy trying to get Cyberphase series because it's highly possible that they won't be reproduced ever again.
