I got a ticket to see Naruto Ninja Illusion! It was so easy! *sigh* Wish Tenimyu was like that...

Speaking of which, do we have a cute name for the Naruto show yet? Um... Narugeki or something?

Anyway, I think my ticket is quite good, depending on the layout. I'm zone S, row 5, seat 5. Might be quite good?

Lost the auction overnight and promptly added bids to two more final shows. Lost them instantly. Went for a Tuesday one instead... am currently the high bidder.

I don't know why they did it this way, I really don't.

And hey, this made me giggle (Loveless). I confess that usually those 'who would play x in a live action film' posts tend to be quite... eh for me.

The trouble with Yahoo Japan auctions is that sellers can enable bidding to extend by 5 minutes if a bid comes in during the final 5 minutes, and this can go on indefinitely as long as someone bids in the last 5 minutes. I've watched an auction extend for over an hour like this, and in the end I figured that the price was driven way beyond what I was prepared to pay.

I'd suggest to either bid high and look only after the auction is done, or watch the final minutes like a hawk.

Yeah, I'm using the first tactic you mentioned. I'm bidding my full amount and then coming back later to look. In the cases where I've lost instantly, it's because someone had already bid more than my maximum. It occurs to me that bidding on an auction ending on Sunday is actually weakening my chances, so maybe I'll try tomorrow.

Thanks for the info! I imagine most of these sellers have used that option because they know full well how valuable those tickets are... ;_;
