Not sure if you care, but I just looked at the auction and it shows them all in Chinese, not Japanese

I was wondering that, the description states "in Chinese or Japanese"....which one is it?

Chinese. If you look at the pic in detail, you'll see that all of the spines are in Chinese and it doesn't have the JC (for Jump Comics) on the back. It seems to have another logo (most likely it's the company that translated these)

I mean, you're pretty open about looking at cartoon porn. Why would you do that? It's fiction. The proportions of these women are not possible to reach in reality.

Honestly I prefer kai's the picture at times is a bit too saturated. And the cropping at times is just bad. I will say though I like johnson's music, But I wish that it was mixed a bit louder

I just got my first Dragon Box!

It's not a huge deal compared to the other types of things in this thread, but I thought it was worth sharing. Too bad the others usually go for at least twice the price of this one.

I'd love to be out and about and find Dragonbox 2 or 4 for like 40 or 50 bucks. haha I did find Final Fantasy 7 in pretty much mint condition for 99 cents so it could happen. :lol:
The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128
