Deathsmiles 2 box currently at 36,500 yen:

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/t646476343

Proxy bidder, of course. Actually every bidder on this auction so far has been a proxy.

EDIT: ended at 38,500 yen to a proxy bidder.

SDOJ Matsuri artset + promo flyer with some other CAVE swag sold for 86,999 yen at auction. Doesn't look like a proxy bidder.

Akai Katana metal cup with toothbrush. Yes, a toothbrush. I am amazed at how much random junk CAVE slapped their games on.

There's a MFBL Another Ver kit on ebay for $8500 USD. It has the Japanese box with the sticker on it, but it has tape marks as well. Even if it had an actual JP PCB it would still be 3-4x too much.

In case anyone is hunting for a Japanese MFBL kit, Game-Kanaya has one in stock for 226,800 yen, which is a really good price considering the box has the sticker on it:

http://www.game-kanaya.com/osusume7/osusume7.html#mb

A proxy like FromJapan will be able to order this for you.

(The last bare PCB at Tops sold for more than this, btw, and Suruga-ya sold a kit for 298,000 yen last year)

They also have a Deathsmiles PCB + copied art for 135,000 yen.

SDOJ Matsuri art/inst set + promo flyer starting at 80,000 yen:

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/v642408561

I think this is the fourth or fifth one I've seen in the past month. I wonder how many they sold at the CAVE online festivals? I am also starting to think the promo flyer was only available at the online festivals. I've never seen it in a kit or elsewhere (distributed at an arcade, location test, etc).

SDOJ toresetsu starting at 40,000 yen.  :laugh:

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e358745467

Someone needs to tell this guy the toresetsu was included in the SDOJ super limited edition, which you can find used for about 12,000-15,000 yen, if you hunt around a bit.

This did not attract even one bid! I am quite surprised that this Black Label, which is the second rarest behind Ibara Kuro, sells for so little nowadays in comparison to the other BLs. It is the only rare Japanese CAVE PCB that has not risen in value very much (and has even seen some strange dips in price over the past year). In regard to the quality of its X360 port (and the other BLs), it's slightly worse than DFK BL and closer to the level of DSMBL. So that doesn't really explain the situation either.

Another Version killed the price IMO.  Also is Ibara Kuro really the rarest BL?  Certainly not more rare than DaiOuJou BL?  I've been tracking PCBs and the rarest CV1000 BL from my data appears to be DDP DFK BL, although they are all in the same ballpark.  Maybe they produced more initially but it shows up less frequently in google image searches, ebay, YAJ, forums, etc.

Here are stats on what I've seen (by tracking serial numbers):

DDP DOJ BL: 6
DDP DFK BL: 13
Deathsmiles MBL: 16
Futari BL AV: 17
Futari BL: 18
Ibara Kuro: 22

You are right, I forgot about DOJ BL. They only made 100 of those. (The conversion carts have really hurt the value of that game.) CAVE claims they only made 100 of Ibara Kuro too, but good evidence suggests the total went a bit over that (my guess is around 150, the same number as MFBL JP).

They made 200 DFK BL PCBs (same as DSMBL and MFBL AV). See my serial number thread for the data on this (the highest serial on cavedb is PCB #183). Rarity in terms of number produced versus rarity in terms of how often one shows up for sale are different issues. Both (+ popularity/desirability) influence pricing.

In regard to MFBL AV, there really were only 200 made (I think there is a widely held misconception that they made many more), new kits sold out nearly 8 months ago, and it's not the same exact game as a JP MFBL PCB. You also can't easily swap ROM chips to a different version, like on older CAVE PCBs. But you may be right that this has influenced the prices of JP MFBL PCBs, at least for the short term; if you just want to play God mode, it is the best/cheapest option out there. Still, 150 JP + 200 AV PCBs is the same amount of PCBs made as SDOJ (350). And look how much that sells for!

Tops updated their list today. Some minor price drops, as well as the addition of an SDOJ PCB with mint art/inst for 648,000 yen:

https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=5771

Interestingly, they had this same exact PCB (serial SDOJ-00226) in stock last year (July), for the same price. It was listed as sold in January, so apparently whoever bought it sold it back to Tops...

I don't usually mention console game sales, but a sealed LE of Mushihimesama X360 sold for 34,200 yen, to a proxy bidder:

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/o318757673

Pretty crazy! Pretty sure that's the most expensive CAVE X360 LE at the moment. The last mint sealed MMP/PS LE sold for 22,500 yen, in comparison (also to a proxy bidder!): https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/l518013665

Tops update today.

https://www.tops-game.jp/products/list.php?category_id=174

Some price drops, but also a few price INCREASES, with their Futari 1.5 PCBs (they went up from 130k and 138k to 132k and 140k yen). Also newly in stock are a Pink Sweets for 233k, DFK BL for 424k, and a "mint condition" Ibara Kuro for 438k yen (serial IB-091).

Strange that the DFK BL is actually priced lower than the last three, all of which sold rather quickly in the past 6 months. Maybe it's not in great cosmetic condition. (It's hard to think of any other reason.)

This is back up for 190k yen, if anyone is interested. MFBL JP is still the best deal in Japanese BLs these days.

BEEP has a Mushihimesama kit in stock for 110,000 yen:

https://www.akihabara-beep.com/stock-pcb/

The art is in bad shape (tape marks and bends/rips on everything; pinholes in the POP), but it includes the box (though the box is also in bad shape, with writing and tape marks on it).
