K-ON!!

Remember about a month or two back, I reported that the drink maker Kirin Beverages saw record amount of shipment of their popular drink Afternoon Tea. The extraordinary sales number was fuelled by a K-ON!! × Afternoon Tea campaign at Lawson.

The top prize, awarded to 5 lucky winners, was a model of guitar that Yui uses in the anime.

When the winners received their guitars though, they were in for a pleasant surprise:

It was signed by the cast of HTT. That instantly turned this into a highly coveted collector’s item.

Auction


One winner was quick to take advantage of this however.

The item made it on Yahoo! Auctions Japan and quickly rose to ¥266,000, or roughly $3200CAD, and still rising (presumably).

Whoever that’s buying this is either one rich otaku or is stealing money from somewhere to pay for this.

But who knows. Otakus may hold the key to turning around a 20-year stagnation of the Japanese economy.

Update


This auction has officially hit ridiculous levels as someone probably entered a ridiculous bid.

If true that would put this at more than $119,000,000CAD.
