An otaku erogamer has procured no less than 43 copies of newly released remade eroge title Shin Koihime Musou, in what must rank as one of the most expensively pointless mega-purchases to date.

Each copy cost in the region of ¥10,000, so in total he spent nearly $5,000 on the title…

“I’ve built it! The Tower of Babel!”

It’s not clear why he needed all these copies (“to save them” he says in the thread), but speculation generally centres on some collection motive, such as telephone cards or similar (though there are unlikely to be 43 different cards on offer).

Surely, he must have some motive other than building the Tower of Babel, as games are not exactly ideal for display en masse, unlike figures
