Foggle, you'll have to let us know when you get the book, and how awesome it is.
I'll be sure to! I'll try to take some pictures, as well. :)

WHY only ONE available, this is murdering my spirit...

I'm tempted to get the character reference book, assuming it's big enough and content wise any good to make up for that crazy price..!

Goddamn goddamn goddamn though... I wanted the commemorative art book as well, It's not even that pricey for what I was willing to pay for it  :wth:

Yeah, it's the same seller, too. But that's just scary as it took a price jump of 17 bucks more since Foggle got his copy. O_o Perhaps a 10% sale will be offered later? Time will tell.

Edit: Okay, I just found out a possible reason for the price increase. This copy includes the single sheet 2012 calendar which was originally handed out with the purchase of the book when it was sold at Comiket 81. These calendars were supposedly very limited.

I know. It bugs me because I can't really spring for it until next week.

I just did a check on what this seller had remaining today. Only a few things left - two Excel Saga doujins and Rikdou's "Fifth" remain. Much was bought since yesterday.

Foggle and me are probably the happiest ES fans right about now  :swoon:

Still need a wall scroll, several doujinshi by Rikudou and maybe 2-3 remaining art books, plus if possible, separate volumes of Daitenzin before it became one book, the calendar would be sweet as heck too, I wonder if I'm missing any other worthwhile collectors items..?

If someone doesn't buy it first, I plan to get Fifth by next week.
I'm also going to ask that seller on your behalf if more calendars and commemorative books can be made available.

Well i already got the commemorative art book ordered, but the calendar would be neat, maybe it can be bought separately..?
I already own Fifth so don't worry about me yoinking that..!

Got my book today - it's amazing, and in fantastic condition! I really wish I could read Japanese, since it seems to have a plot of some sort. I think Micki!'s going to post pics of his copy; I'd take some of my own, but my camera is awful.

Congrats! :e_hail: Hope you were able to get a good deal.

That's what I'm aiming to find out.
From what I understand of it, the calendar was given out to the first X-number of buyers of the commemerative book. It was supposedly a loose item from the book. There could be several still floating around out there and I want to find out for certain.

Awesome! I actually still remember when you bought that a while back at the old ES Forum.

Got my book today - it's amazing, and in fantastic condition!
Excellent!!! That's the kind of news I was hoping for. Perhaps we can feel assured that any future purchases from this particular seller could also be good ones.

I really wish I could read Japanese, since it seems to have a plot of some sort.
Interesting! It certainly would be nice if we could get a translator to help with that.

Not much news to report on those calendars.
I managed to contact the seller and was told I would be contacted if any could be made available. I wouldn't keep our hopes up too high. Still.. you never know. I'll update if I hear anything.

I'm quite pleased I spoke with this seller because I did manage to secure a copy of the commemorative book. Should arrive in the next week or two along with "Fifth." Can't wait. :il_smile:

Indeed it is, Foggle.
And here I was figuring it would take an eternity to find another copy. Lady Luck has been smiling upon all of us in these recent weeks!
