Attention Katawa Shoujo NYC Fans

Post by Lansan1ty » Sun Aug 21, 2011 3:49 am

If you are a KS fan and live in NYC (or will be in NYC) this coming Saturday. I come bearing gifts! I just returned from Comitia 97 and purchased 10 Katawa Shoujo Illustration Books for all you American fans who complained about not being able to get them since you don't live in Japan.

Since they each cost me 300 Yen (Which is like almost $4!)I decided that I'll be handing them out to fans for FREE. (Technically "Free" you're gonna end up paying a metrocard fee to get to my neighborhood probably, which would be like $4.50 round trip nowadays, right?)

Since I'll be returning to NYC from Japan this Friday (around 3pm) and heading upstate to Utica, NY on Sunday for college I can really only do this on Saturday. (or MAYBE friday night if we can meet up)

I'll figure out when and where after I see how many responses there are to this, but it will probably be somewhere in Forest Hills since that's where I live.

If I don't give out all 10 the next time I return to NYC I'll mail em out to people if they help me with shipping, I'm not nice enough to pay for that haha. But that's a big MAYBE* since I think there may be 10 KS fans in NYC.

I don't live anywhere near NYC neither, and I guess your 10 guides will quickly find someone in NYC.

But if you still have some of them after that, I will pay for shipping and even more.

By the way, I am surprised, there is no KS Illustrations books/Players Guides on ebay/yahoo auctions/rakuten/whatever. :cry:

I thought some people would have bought them for reselling after, at insane prices.

Wow, you're a real bro for doing that.
I gotta second that last request though. I'm also not around NYC, but would really like to buy one of the artbooks.
Would pay you accordingly and handle the shipping costs of course. Have mercy on an unworthy Eurofag!

I'd love to have one of the books. I won't be around NYC on Saturday. But it just so happens that I will be in upstate NY over Labor Day Weekend. I'll have to check my itinerary tomorrow; I might be passing through Utica.

That would just be too awesome for words if that worked out.
I found out about Katawa Shoujo through the forums of Misfile. There, I am the editor of Misfiled Dreams.

I will too. Just tell me the price young lad, and you'll get the money before you can say "Australia is mine!" :)

I kinda regret only buying 10 now...
We'll see how this all turns out. I plan on returning to Japan by Winter Comiket (if I have the money to return by then) and the TL staff mentioned something about a new art book for that event. So if you don't get one of these, perhaps you may get one in the winter.

Hey, I'll give $20 plus any shipping costs if I can get a copy mailed to me. I'll use it to generate a scan which I'll share with the others if I get permission from the devs. If you're interested, let me know

Hi Lansan1ty,

Glad that you got hold of those books. Please enjoy it, and I hope the books go to the good fans out there in US.
There are plenty of copies in stock so if anyone plans to come to Japan feel free to contact me.

As for the winter comiket I'm still discussing with the dev folks...please follow the dev blog for updates.

When I arrived at the destination, the OP unleashed a pack of dogs at me, mugged me and proceeded to dump me in a river. The book was in pretty good quality though.
