      Must be cause I'm old but from the start I knew the guy making this video is the guy that bought the bid so the surprise just wasn't that great for me other than it's amazing that there's just some things you can only get from living long enough living long enough Moral of the story you kids are smart real smart but you all should really learn to respect your elders more than you do

    I was getting stuff delivered from Japan to America throughout the entire Covid lockdown. I just paid extra for DHL. They were never really affected by the JapanPost issues, and I got my packages in just a few days. I can't believe Buyee didn't offer this or anything. That, honestly, seems kind of ridiculous.

The selfless preservationists who put their own time and money into preserving video game history for *everyone else* simply because it's the right thing to do. Hats off!

    Dude, the way you edited this documentary is amazing. Projecting this story from your minds emotional eye into the minds of 4 million people is something to be very, very proud of! You did culture justice, and as much as I hate McDonalds as a company, I'm absolutely amazed at the detail of the game and how cute it is. That's the way of Japanese though, thoughtful craft is in their blood. Bravo!

I cried more than twice out of happiness for you lol. Thank you for turning my horrible morning around. Not only did I learn about a game I had no idea existed.. but I got to enjoy this amazing movie edited video. I’ll def check out the game you dumped! Maybe tonight while I eat some McDonald’s. Good luck with the future adventures you go on. ♡
