Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Potential buyers have bid 22,500 to 25,500 yen (about US$230 to US$265) in auctions for Official Nagi-sama Fan Club Member's Cards from the Kannagi anime series on the Yahoo! Japan website. In the anime and Eri Takenashi's original manga, Nagi-sama is a goddess who come to life before an art student when he carves a statue from a Kannagi tree. The club has deliberately limited the number of available memberships; in the third membership campaign recently, the club issued only 1,000 cards to randomly selected applicants.
A third ongoing auction offers another fan cub membership card and a poster that was only available to members at a "Kannagi Matsuri" event on Sunday. The bids for the auction have reached 16,000 yen (US$170) nine hours before it ends on Tuesday.
Update: The auction with the card and poster has now ended at 24,000 yen (US$250).
