Apparently, there are fans that will go that far.

You'd think after seeing it more than 5 times, they would stop going to see it.

Well, at least there was different swag at each theater...

I don't know whether to find this admirable or sad.

Another fan had previously calculated that it would cost more than 70,000 yen (about US$865) to get all the advance tickets with all their bonuses for the film.


Not impressive when buying the BDs for both seasons easily costs more than that.

This isn't that big of a deal, I have a friend who owns over $2,000 worth of Twilight merchandise. Including a calendar she payed $450 for... At least K-ON! is good and worth seeing multiple times.

I have to admit I wonder why the calendar was $450. Signed or something?

There's a pretty big difference between spending $865 on movie tickets (which doesn't count food and transportation, cause there was definitely travel involved) and $865 on merchandise.

Eeeeehhhh... I personally have to differ about K-ON being that good that it guarantees multiple rewatch values.

I don't see 'man was arrested' in the title for taking pictures at a movie theater and uploading them to an internet website. These film strip images were like trading cards they were giving out? How much did the k-on popcorn and drink set cost?

For that much money, I hope that calendar was well made and the bare minimum, had free shipping.

Personally I would never spend that much a calendar, but that is just me.

As for the guy, well I will say this, he is devoted and apparently has a great deal of time on his hands.

With the average price for a ticket in Japan being $15+, it is no surprise the fan spent that much. I do understand that the individual probably got a discount for buying in advance and there may have been other discounts available. But, this was a fairly large sum of money to dish out for a single movie in several different venues.
