View Full Version : Can you buy Japanese VA autographs?

Do the Japanese sell anime VA autographs, either VHS/LD/DVD/magazine covers, or photos/posters?
If so is there any way to buy them online? Where/how are they sold in Japan itself, if at all?

The seiyuu magazines always have contests for autographed photos of the seiyuu featured that issue. You send in a survey postcard and if your card is drawn, they send you an autographed picture from one of the choices you put down.
Sometimes they're given out at seiyuu events as well, 10 lucky people got randomly selected by the 2 seiyuu present at an event I went to in December.
I don't think there's much commercial sales of Japanese celebrities' autographs. You'll sometimes see them on Yahoo Japan, though. I've been waiting for one of the autographed photos from the event I mentioned to show up, but no such luck.

VA autographs are nearly always given out as prizes in draws, events, signings, fanclubs and what not, but never commerical sold as officially recongised merchandise. Occasionally you do see some signiture boards or signed goods being auctioned off online privately or sold at second hand stores, but they are very rare to come by.
