There's no markup. I got these games through Yesasia (PS2) or Crescent-Shop (Japanese Yahoo auctions). The PS2 games were 90-100€ each originaly, the PC games 20-30% more expensive than for what I offer them here.
Also note, that the $ pretty much sucks atm, however that makes living here in Europe not cheaper. If I'd live in the US it'd be a different thing. Thank your economy for the exchange rate lol >.<

When I was looking at prices, I've been converting them from euros into yen, not USD. For example, your Kanon Standard Edition is marked up by around 60% from the Japanese price, not including shipping. The Simoun LE is around 9240 yen (if it were still available). If you were paying 90-100 euros for that when you originally bought it, that would've been at least a 40%-50% markup that YesAsia was placing on the game.

Well, import prices are always more expensive.. It's no that I went to Japan and bought them. And the pc games I got from Himeyashop.
Ah, PlayAsia had those game not much cheaper.
Anyways, I'll lower the prices a bit, but that'll be it. Most of the games are sold out and I'm already selling them far under what I've paid for them.

Ah, now the prices seem a bit more reasonable. I'm not saying you should be charging exactly at the yen price, but if the markup is too high, then people are more likely to buy directly from a retailer and get a new copy rather than buy a used copy. Normally, it is assumed that people selling used goods are not selling these goods with the aim of getting most of their purchase price back, because it is assumed that you obtained some value out of the item.

"because it is assumed that you obtained some value out of the item."

Haha, that'd be great. Besides the high prices I paid I also had to pay 19% taxes to the customs here in Germany + fee >.<

"directly from a retailer"
I doubt they can get the limited editions from any retailer though. Anyways, hope to be able to sell the games. I'm a student and don't have much money q.q

Regardless of the prices and taxes you had to pay, when buying second-hand stuff, I expect to see substantially lower price tags (I might find cheaper copies at Y!AJ for that matter). When selling old copies, you should be prepared to lose some money... and parts of your soul as well. Those are all collection-worthy games I'd dare not to sell too...

Prices lowered.

@Anya
True, but the games just take away place and I have absolutely no time to play em. And even if I lose a lot I'll still rather sell them than seeing them being covered by dust more and more.

I might have interest in planetarian. Currently out of money, but I should have some till your deadline.
But isn't shipping bit high?
I am having cheaper shipping from Japan and/or US (and the point is, that I am in Slovakia, which is closer to Germany). Though depends on weight...

Although... I read somewhere that you live close to Holland borders.... I have father working there. If I ask him, can you make deal person to person?

Thanks for your interest!

@Enerccio
I can also send it as letter, that'd cost 5€.
And yes, I live quite close to the border.

@kozec
Yes, it's still there, you have pm ;)

Okay I will ask him and see where he is exactly (I don't know that).
But I will buy planetarian even if by using a mail, so don't worry.
