Kaigai Ryoko Nikki II with Ayaka and Lovetan bonus pics:



- 10nen Zakura Theater CD (came with bootleg Harugon card)
- Everyday Kachuusha CDs
- Yuki Photore pics
- Rena's Koko ni ita koto pic (massive props to YKT!)



When there are sold-out items I want, I check CDJapan multiple times a day to check if the items get back in stock. I lucked out with these Kachuusha CDs, because ther were sold out a long time ago, but one day they had some left. I bought them asap! It was a race against the clock for the voting tickets to arrive on time. Sadly, the tickets lost the race. A couple days after the election I received a mail from CDJ saying the CDs came back to them and that they would try to re-send it. This never happened before, but aw well. They arrived eventually.

I received the Rena pic from YKT  :bow: This means a lot to me. Sometimes, amidst all the die-hard collectors and insane prices on auctions, you forget the true meaning of picture collecting. It should be all about the girls you like and about who the other person likes, regardless of picture value. For example: if I have an Acchan pic, but don't like her at all... why wouldn't I trade it for the Mariyannu pic I love so much? Because the Acchan is worth more? No! That's just stupid and a lot of people get carried away with the 'business end' of collecting.

To me, a picture is much more valuable if it's received as a gift or through a trade, because then it has a story behind it. Sure, I love Yuki and I did buy those Photore pictures... but the Rena pic YKT gave me, the Tubgirls pic that once belonged to Meania and Masa and the Rie pic I got from Maliciel will always be worth much more to me. They have heart  :heart:

Personally, this is something I fear and wish to not think of much. I wouldn't want to know the events that transpired involving those small printed collectibles. :lol:


kidding aside, about the relative 'price' of these items. Regardless of sentiments and reasonings, one thing doesn't change, this stuff drains from you a lot of money.
Can't blame most people, we all want to get the most out of the stuff we have.
So you have an Acchan item you don't care for much, trading it 1:1 for a Mariyannu item i'd say IS stupid.... when you can sell that Acchan item and get x5 of Mariyannu items using the reward earned. haha just as an example
kk, ranting just now, ill stop before anyone says i complain too much again.


But yeah, trading with people is in itself very satisfying, have had a few successful trades that ended in meeting more cool fans.
just don't befriend people who like the same girls as you... you'll never get stuff circulated. *winkwink

This is exactly the problem. If everybody stopped selling/buying pics for crazy prices, everything would revolve around 1:1 trades...

But yeah, I know, the demand for an Acchan is higher, so you could easily get more pics/cash for it... damn market principles  :lol:

XD You got one off him too? I think he had 2 tubgirl photos and I traded him the type A cover photo for one thinking he'd appreciate having 2 different photos and I'd like a photo different to the cover of the single I'd bought :lol: then Barrie offered a trade~!

To attempt to ease the pain of not being able to order all these new releases till I get a job (the thing that gets me most is missing out on lots of bonus pics!) I took an updated full collection photo!~ :D
From this:

To this:


In half a year!! :lol:
(There's also a few fake photos but I feel like they shouldn't be included! :lol:; )
I might have to start thinking about selling my Limited B's of Beginner and Sakura no Ki ni Narou if they're worth much at the moment... feels a bit silly to have more than one Type A/B and a theater, I allow myself to get a theater also as they're often handy to get all the single tracks on your computer with one disc! If they're only selling for £5 or something though I'll hang onto them! XD
