I'm having a hard time deciding if I should want one of these or be horrified that I can actually sign a contract with Kyubey.

I'd like to assume I'm safe, since I'm not a young teenage girl, but you can never be sure around Kyubey.

I don't care how, but someone in japan needs to hold a contract saying in a evil tone "you're life is now under my control!" while laughing with a firey background as the scared shitless goober who got wrapped up in that stares with fear at the kyubey seal.

I really don't care how its done or who does it, JUST MAKE IT HAPPEN SOMEONE!

You're not - sure, he'd normally overlook you, but if he was pressed trying to meet his quota nearly any human would work.

The Japanese web site is here.

You get up to 6 characters for your name. I can't tell whether they would ship internationally.

I would expect these would get used for signing for deliveries, but it would take a certain amount of chutzpah to actually use it for banking, or legal documents.

And there is, or was a few years ago, a whole thing of collecting stamps from people you meet attending an event. I saw this at the 2007 World Science Fiction Convention in Yokohama. There, they mostly used printed stickers, but the form was obviously based on these signature stamps.

Perhaps, but he would have to work extra-hard to keep production up. That is until it was time for the crossovers, and we got into the ultimate IS-scenario: Kyubey meets Shinji Ikari. Unless, spoiler[even without emotions,] Kyubey decides that one is too low-hanging a fruit to pluck.

I can't believe this would be accepted as a legal stamp of one's signature. Those are usually a Kanji done in the font of a wood carving of a family surname, or mixed with a kanji of authority. These are just for kids to use for graffiting whatever they feel like. However, it is Japan afterall. Laughing
