Disregard what I said about Akihabalove DVD
My purchase has apparently failed. I (incorrectly) assumed I had won the DVD as my 5000 yen bid had gone unchallenged for quite a while plus I was willing to go double that..until this morning during the final minutes of the auction, a massive bid war erupted. After seeing prices go above 10000, I declined to follow through. Final winning price?
Holy shit!!! I love Halko, but not "450 dollars for a single DVD" love. Japan has some serious fanboys that I cannot compete with. Maybe next time when I am older and richer ;)

You requested that Akihabalove DVD torrent that's on a few bt sites didn't you? I would think so since he/she pointed out this same YAJ auction in their description. :Downloading right now:

Actually I had no idea someone requested it. Can you mail me a link?

Nevermind, I got it :)
I wonder who else was bidding against me. Possibly perfume fanatic, ekuseru?

Yeah that one dude was bidding for the same item as well. But his max bid was only 5100 yen. As for who uploaded the torrent, it was someone by the name of djkc who won the DVD earlier for only 4500 yen. Seems like ekuseru will be putting up clips from the show later on YouTube. Anyway, I left my download on all night and I'm only at around 40% complete with a single seed online. I plan to seed for awhile once I'm done with it, hopefully.

Yeah I was bidding for it too *_* I thought a 5100 yen max bid was enough to get it but, wow I never thought someone would pay more than 10000 yen for it.
