The classic question I’m sure all J-music collectors have heard about: what do you think about Obi? Do you make sure to keep them, or do you throw them out? If a second-hand release doesn’t have an Obi, would you still buy it? As an additional question, do you keep the little ad flyers and/or M-cards that come inside CDs (promotions about tour dates, the Fanclub, new releases, etc.) too?
I for one do love Obi very much, but if a second-hand CD I’m buying doesn’t have one then it’s no deal-breaker for me. I like reading the little messages on the Obi, or seeing stuff like hidden illustrations/secret messages on the inside part of it, it’s just one of those little things that make collecting fun for me. I also never get rid of the ads or M-cards (despite the fact that I can’t use the cards lol)
