Anime distributor auctions signed goods; game companies sell game/merchandise

North American anime distributor Funimation announced on its blog on Tuesday that it would auction off a variety of "rare" anime collectibles. The proceeds of the auction will go to charities involved in relief efforts for the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake (Higashi Nihon Daishinsai) disaster of March 11. In a press release, Funimation noted that it was making use of eBay's Giving Works program to donate auction proceeds to Global Giving. Among the items available are:

Videogame companies CAPCOM and Majesco are taking part in a charity effort in which gaming companies auction off games and merchandise. CAPCOM is auctioning off two packs of Okamiden merchandise, based on the popular Nintendo DS game, and Majesco is auctioning off a game pack featuring anime-styled game Cooking Mama! with a branded apron, stylus, and stickers. These auctions also make use of eBay's Giving Works program and will raise funds for Global Giving.

Update: Okamiden's system corrected. Thanks, Dessa.
