Now if they would only translate this in English like they did Der Mond and Die Stern and bring it over here.

Okay, I was going to buy this, but Hobby Japan, at least, added on $100 to an already $100 price for no apparent reason. I wasn't patient enough to figure out why; I just knew I didn't want to pay it.

Amazon.co.jp doesn't appear to be carrying this. Anyone know of alternatives? (Would spare me a certain expenditure of time looking around.)

Maybe to the secret to eternal happiness hidden in the bible that is Evangelion isn't meant for us. And if it is, we have to pay.
You can probably find parts of it all over the internet when it finally comes out.

That steep price tag might not pose an enormous problem if I gave out my Paypal address and peeps actually put $$$ into it.

I'd do it, but I'd better get my money's worth in translations.

I can't promise anything, but, naturally, nothing will ever get translated if nobody gets a copy of this thing.

Paypal any amount of contribution to rachel dot k dot clark at comcast dot net; my funds are shabby enough that I don't seem liable to be able to get this (anytime soon) without help.

@ Reichu: In terms of translating, why not just get Imp on it? He is a native speaker of Japanese and has offered his services more than once, at least.

Anyway I dig some digging on the internets and I couldn't really find any other place that sells that thing besides Amazon.jp and Hobbylink (which is apparently sold out).

Amazon.jp has it? I just made an order there, and I didn't see the thing anywhere among the WEVANGELIWON stuffs. (Worst comes to worst, I'll have to get this thing as a Yahoo! JP hand-me-down.)

And, yeah, I could theoretically ask Imp.

System Shocker: Thanks, much appreciated. :thumbsup: Come on, peeps, put some $$$ into the pot!

I knew I should have included the link. ^^;

What's odd is what I see of it is supposedly just a CD rom?

Anyway: http://tinyurl.com/4q6dye

But either way, those heartless bastards don't ship outside of Japan. ;_;

Proxy??

EDIT: And I will give some monies for the Feed Teh Reichu MOAR Eva Fund, but I is a poor college student right now. Sometime later this year when I have some more money saved up though, you can count on it.

If we were to give you the funds for this book - will you scan it and make it available for those who contributed in the form of a direct download?

If Reichu had ever bothered to get around to answering my question then I would have donated $30 or something, as long as I was guaranteed a digital copy, because if I'm not getting anything in return by donating then why shouldn't I just buy the book at full price to begin with?

Either way I've felt like I've been pissed about now by the lack of any response at all (especially since you're asking for money), when I was offering help - which turned me off the idea altogether.

I have bought this book here, whereas I have bought the Groundwork in CDJapan together the Special Edition of the movie.

You can't buy it in Amazon.jp because they don't ship this book and the Groundwork outside of Japan (and the same with the Groundwork of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)
