A lot of hibaihin have been added, essentially in the taikenban section. It took me a month to upload pictures of 400+ titles (knowing that each one has between 2 and 6 pictures, I let you guess how much time it took to do so...). I feel exhausted but very happy to share them with you :)
Let's continue the journey!!!

2017 - December 28th
The first hibaihin have been posted! I've decided to begin with THE very piece of collection which gave me the idea to start the ambitious project : the V-DISC!
When I found this auction, it was late at home and very early in Japan. It had been listed for a few minutes. I immediately felt this was very uncommon by the look of the title... Then I tried to figure out what it was but I got no results , except the name of the Vantan Academy (not surprising when I later discovered that it had never been properly named in databases...). The price was expensive but I don't know why but I had to buy it...
I progressively began to go deeper into the PS1 hibaihin world but I found myself confronted to a wall... Nobody had ever made any complete list of them. Nobody had ever tried to undergo the full set, pretending it was impossible...
I'm a man of challenge, you know. For a French, "Impossible n'est pas français"! It was settled, I had to break the wall and be a pioneer discovering an unknown land!
Lottery prizes section has been updated will the following games:
- Nise Furopon-kun P! Famitsu Nottori Version ( 1000 copies) ;
- Arc the Lad Monster Game Present version (1000 copies) ;
- King's Field III Pilot Style, probably one of the rarest PS1 releases (13 copies?) ;
- Macross VF-X 2 Tokyo Snack Special Version, complete with the 4 postcards and campaign materials! (1000 copies) ;
- Harry Potter to Kenja no Ishi Coca-Cola Original Version (1000 copies).
I'm back very soon, enjoy!
2017 - December 27th
Welcome to the "Arrivals" section!
Here I'll post the hibaihin I ordered from Japan as well as new additions to the database. I feel very excited about sharing my experiences with you! I have to work on the website structure first but it won't be long before the first hibaihin come.
NotForSaleParadise will be regularly updated, so feel free to come back here regularly!
