Looks like these Osaka citizens are lined up for a live stage play. It’s actually a grocery store.

Arale and Gatchan (from Dr. Slump) endorse a “Hustler” mini-van (nothing to do with the magazine), Shin-Osaka station.

Today’s haul (left to right): the other two Cosmo Fleet SP carriers, Saraba Yamato doujinshi, Leiji Matsumoto fan magazine, 1994 New Type with a vintage Yamato article in it.

Future Boy Conan deluxe book and CD set. The CD was missing, so it cost less than $30.
