(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 02:18 Feb. 04, 2010.)

In prior article we reported that some of the filmstrips of Lyrical Nanoha movie given away for dedicated fans are traded at inflated prices.

We know that the thing is quite precious, for no two film strips are ever the same. But going through auction sites on the Internet, we met some ridiculously high-priced filmstrips. Some of them are more expensive than $5000. How could they be?

Read on for detail.

On Yahoo! Auction, there are more than 200 film strips put up for auction.

Filmstrips on auction are priced at various prices. The highest started at 100 thousand Yen (about $1100 USD) but it could only be a rough guide. For example a filmstrip met its deadline on Feb. 4 was first priced at 80 thousand Yen(about $880 USD) until Feb. 3, but suddenly they began to bid and the price finally went up as high as 133 thousand Yen(about $1460 USD).
