So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

(Or just get 195 pages of design work for Utena nobody else has?)

Well, aren't YOU in luck today?

http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/auc_e/item … 8590100007

Gio and I have no money. emot-gonk But somebody does! Lookie, lookie, Touga and his opera glasses! You want it, you know you do. And then you want to scan it for us. It's your Christmas present to Utena fandom. C'mon, you didn't need to pay the rent this month anyway. Ooh, better hurry, 18 hours left! Try not to bid against your fellow forumites. Remember, 'tis better to give than to receive! Unless you're talking me and G, I mean, the gallery! Then receiving is GREAT! Also stuff in IFD. But that's beside the point!

(See, Gio, told you I had no shame. emot-tongue)

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

Christ, no kidding. emot-aaa

But uh...yeah. I'm gonna check my finances and see if I can swing this. I'm not going to beg like that one up there, but if any of you do buy it for yourselves, for god's sake scan it for me.

Hell, if you trust me, AS YOU SHOULD, you can mail it to me and I'll scan it myself and return it. emot-keke

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

I'd could get it for you if someone would explain how to go about bidding on it. That's about $40, right?

Thereabouts, plus shipping. You'll want to try and sign up ASAP, though, given the time left.

You go here: http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/auc_e/index.do

In order to register. Should've mentioned that originally, actually. If you do do it, seriously, thanks so much. I would have snapped this up in a heartbeat were I not desperately poor due to Xmas. emot-smile

I guess you've purchased from them before? You'd say they were a reputable site? They don't take PayPal so there's more of a risk...that's why I'm asking...

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

Mandarake is probably the largest used anime store in Japan. It's a chain, with branches in the big cities. I'd say it's definitely reputable, so don't be afraid to go for it. Paypal doesn't exist in Japan, unfortunately though emot-gonk

Hmmm... I'm signing up for it...is there a postage calculator, by any chance?

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

I thought there was only one of them? I was going to bid on it in case no one here would. I've got some school payments coming up, but I could probably swing it if I'm careful...

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

Good luck to you guys getting that. I'd be willing to donate to help get this up in the gallery if whoevers bidding needs a little more. I'd be more than up for paypaling $10s or so towards the cause if a forum member wins.

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

Well...thanks to Disney having an exchange sheet right here for me, I'm now the high bidder at 31.94$ for this item. Or 4100 yen, if you'd rather. Hopefully I don't get overbid at the last minute. I'll keep an eye on it.

9,000 yen (or 70.13$) is the highest I can go on my own, so if it gets higher then that, the board is SOL, unless someone else here makes a bid.

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

Hope like hell I don't overdraft my visa. emot-frown It's still worth it.

And try and figure out how to pay for the damned thing. This site is ridiculously confusing. I go to the payment section, and it tells me there are no winning items, but it clearly says I've won the auction, so wtf? Blade posted about this, does he buy stuff here often? I put all my cc and addy info and stuff on here, would he be able to figure out how to pay for it?

Also? I ought to shoot you for making that joke. emot-mad

Congrats. If you have a paypal, just pm me or something with the addy and I'll send 10 over to help. It's even in the account proper so if you have a non buisness account there shouldn't be a paypal charge.emot-dance

I'll send 10 in the Christmas card, morosemocha.  Which I've changed to a New Year's card, as I knew I couldn't get there by Christmas....besides, the Christmas cards I had on hand were the ugly little tiny ones. Couldn't compare w/glitteries. Had to upgrade.

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

Hey there, sorry it took so long to respond, it's pretty hectic here. To answer the question, I have not used Mandarake personally; I found out about this auction through a friend that frequently buys there. If you're still having trouble with checkout, I'll email her and ask.

I'll second Gio on all the awesomely generous people here. emot-smile

Re: So You Wanna Contribute To The Gallery And Be Immortalised Forever?

Thanks Blade, but I guess they just take a day or two to calculate everything. Oo It came through. With shipping and everything, it's 12,700 yen, which looks far more impressive then apprx 100.67$ The american total is far less likely to inspire absolute terror (mokushiroku!) on my visa.

So...yeah, it should be here...whenever? It says within a week on the page but I very seriously doubt that.

I don't have a paypal account, and I feel shitty asking this, but yeah, if you guys wanna help out, it's really appreciated. I don't have a paypal account, but money orders, or cheques, or cash, whatever, if you feel like sending it, is appreciated. BUT REMEMBER YOU SERIOUSLY DO NOT HAVE TO. Frosty and Teatime have both offered up ten bucks, and that about covers the shipping right there, you guys are love. Like, seriously.

Instead of pming it around, I'm gonna post my addy up here, because I trust you guys (But I'm editing it off after a few days)

I stole it! First her address, and next, her SOUL! school-devil

Damn! I paid for it right when I started this post, and they just posted the payment to my visa! Shit, they're fast! emot-aaa They posted 107.65$. Stupid exchange rate. emot-tongue
