Nice loot, deeRez! You make me aspire to expand my NGE software library once the funds are available...

Wow! Great haul! As always, I'm just in love with the aesthetic of Evangelion packaging. Maybe it's just my everblinding love for Eva, but I feel like the packaging-quality is a notch above other franchises.

I love how the font looks! Is the Romaji-font included by any chance?

Thanks!

In case you don't translate for a living, you should seriously consider making it some kind of side-gig.
"Reichu's translation services."

Ooh, often for Yahoo Auctions, I don't need a full translation, but just simple questions answered like, "Is the seller selling me just the box?" So it'd be cool to offer that as a service as well, "Questions answered."

Hypothetically speaking, how much would you charge per line in the Another Cases translation? ^_^

I don't know, I feel like the Original I, II, III book covers look cool and the Mitsuo Iso book cover looks awesome,
but the rest of the covers look weird.

Like Iron Maiden 1 PS2 cover's head looks stretched.
The PSP character placement looks random.

It just feels like a random group shot. I feel the same way about Iron Maiden 2's PS2 and PSP covers.

I assume it definitely is (can't verify it at the moment).

Included as well, is a neat six or so page booklet of the various fonts in Evangelion, and I guess they explain how they relate to the font one is buying.

Well I AM buying the same game multiple times since each Limited/Special edition has different extras packaged in,
on top of which, they change the game itself.

But if collapsing the duplicates, there's probably around ~20 to 30 games.
There's also that Gameboy Color Rei Mahjong game that I'm unenthused about getting.

Ahh, it gave me the warm and fuzzies to see that special edition PSP GoS box: I played that all the time in college (before I had to sell most of my Eva stuff when moving back home -o-; I made a point to keep my favorite Eva things, though—such as PS2 and PSP NGE2—so no worries there.) The PC versions of the GoS 1 and 2 games do have implied nudity/panty shots the Sony releases naturally censored, lol.

Really nice haul you have there, looks good! :asuka_thumbsup:

You don't say "next week" in this forum without offering "plenty of fan service too"!

It's Eva. Does it need to have any canon ties? :D Picked up a couple of the Pachinko PS2 ports myself (1st 2 games here -
http://evavirtualmuseum.weebly.com/video-games.html) from Book Off for ¥500 each - One of my favorite Japanese stores.

Been knee deep in work for the last month, but this came in:

SPOILER: Show

It looks to be another collection that reuses pictures from the Eva Collector's CDs,
though I need to double check if the Games are also from the Collector's CDs or original.

Some of the images didn't look familiar to me (like they're on the web, but I don't recall seeing them in the collector's cds), such as this one, but I might be wrong:
Image

Also this arrived as a "throw-in" and I expected it to be a strategy guide for an Evangelion video game.
Nope, it's an actual Eva card game. I'm floored by it, it looks great:

And finally, I finally got a 100% NewType book:

^Either 100% Newtype or Eve were my first Eva books.

I think mine was Carmine, can't recall.

So I've got 4 out of the 6 Shinji and Good Friends CDs:

As I'm collecting these somewhat rare Evangelion CDs, I'm wondering if there should be some kind of preservation responsibility I should take like uploading the ISOs to some kind of private archive. It's easy to think there's no way something as merchandised as Evangelion is rare, but I don't know ... I'm having somewhat of a difficult time collecting certain CDs, on top of misinformation.

Apparently the folks at the lostmediawiki have labelled the above CDs as lost:
