Incoming: Obocchama Kun

Of all the games on my lengthy “HuCard wish list,” Namco(t)’s Obocchama Kun has, thus far, been the most bashful when it comes to showing its face on eBay.

In fact, the only “complete” (case + manual + slipcase) version of the game I’ve found on the popular auction site–until last night, that is–is used and goes for $45. Uh, no thanks.

So what changed late last night? Well, for starters, I came across a new, sealed copy of the title. Of course, that wouldn’t have meant much if the seller had attached a $60 (or higher) price tag to it, but thankfully that wasn’t the case. Actually, it was quite the opposite–the seller was asking for just $22. Score!

As excited as I am about my most recent acquisition, I think my wallet and I need to take a bit of a break from eBay.

  1. BTW, thanks to IvaNEC over at for the Obocchama Kun image 🙂

  2. Congrats on the find! Now we need to find you a similar deal on a Mizubaku Daibouken.

    • Ha! That would be great — but I won’t hold my breath. I can’t find a complete, used version of Mizubaku for less than $65 at the moment. Oh, well, I don’t mind waiting for that one — or Gekisha Boy or Parasol Stars 🙂
