IdolM@ster ($80) Charity Auction Hits $1,200

auction1

IdolMaster seiyuu Takahashi Chiaki (Azusa) and Imai Asami (Chihaya), are auctioning off autographed copies of the second IdolMaster game, IdolM@ster Live For You, for charity.

As of writing the price of the signed copies has exceeded the ¥110,000 mark, with less then a hundred bids and is continuing to climb, with 8 hours remaining. The game costs ¥7,000 new.

All of the proceeds will be donated charitably to support the less fortunate.

The games themselves have been opened to allow the seiyuu to sign the inserts under the plastic:

Second-hand copies like this can be had for ¥2,500…

One has to wonder just what kind of fan has the money to afford these…

Via Hachimaki; you can also view the Yahoo Auction.

    Plus, you get to write it up on your tax deduction from your income. Wonder if the tax auditor will call you to clarify that.lol

    It STILL baffles me how a franchise that's made up of little more than two games can garner such a following.

    In other words, WANT.

    For charity, I'll say this is worth it.

    DO WANT! Though, if possible.. wouldn't it be cheaper to just find Chiaki and Asami and ask them for a autograph on the game?

    Surprisingly, these are actually my two favorite characters from IdolM@ster.

    Yeah, but then you wouldn't be donating to charity.

    I wonder if buying something in a charity auction can be used as a tax right-off?

    Well, as a certain man once said " A low possibility means it's not zero " ;)

    Gonna fetch those autographs.

    Oh, I don't care for charity, it's a waste of effort, money and time.
