    Sooooo....a few weeks ago, I was browsing Puresound and stumbled across a couple Malice Mizer tour binders for about $15/each. I hadn't seen any before, so I thought "what the hell" and bought them.

    Binder 1
    Binder 2

    Well, they were delivered today, and what I couldn't see in the pictures on the store is that they are both SIGNED!

    I saw those binders in the Osaka store. I thought of buying at least one but decided not to because they didn't say they were signed, made me feel like the store isn't sure if they're real or not XD

    I hear that. Honestly, I wasn't really looking closely to the pictures. I just saw they were from the System File 2 event and had to get them. I also was super suspicious about the signatures because of the weird "slip" in Mana's on the black binder....but the more I look at other samples, the more I'm thinking they're legit. I wonder if there's anyone who could look into the provenance of such an item? Either way, even if they're illegitimate signatures, they're pretty unique. But just to think that these *may* have passed through Kami's hands at one point gives me the chills. If I get the chance, maybe I'll pick up a known legitimate signature and take them to a graphologist and have them compared.

    They're not so much binders as they are clipboards. They were labeled as binders on the site though. They have the single card stock sheet on them, and a pen holder on the top corner sans pens. No photos or any message.

    Another copy of that DIE RAUM KUNST demo tape, for anyone who likes things that are incredibly rare but not very good:

    I wonder if someone's duplicating these or something.
