THIS CONTEST IS NOW OVER. Congratulations to our winners! See list below.

[C]-Control releases on BD/DVD Combo at the end of the month, and to get you ready we’ve got a fun little web event for you to enjoy. As a side bonus, it’s also a great little economics lesson and you might learn a thing or two. Quick disclaimer though, we are not responsible for any losses you sustain if you decide to apply your newfound skills to real world investing…

Anyways, here are the rules: You are a new Entrepreneur (or anEntré for short) with the chance to invest in three Assets featured in [C] Control. Invest wisely and you may win a prize!

Each round, you will have ten packets of ¥100,000 each (totaling ¥1,000,000) to divide among three Assets however you choose. Assets gain power to attack when you fund them money, and at the end of each round, the Asset that received the most funding from all Entrés wins. Depending on the amount of money you invest in the winning Asset, you will receive entries into a drawing for prizes. However, investment is high-risk, high-reward– the more money you invest in the winning Asset, the greater your shot at the prize.

  • For every ¥200,000 (called a microflation) you invest in a single Asset, you receive 1 entry
  • For every ¥500,000 (mezzoflation), you receive 3 entries
  • For every ¥1,000,000 (macroflation), you receive 10 entries

Now, for the part you all care about—the prizes!

Event will start on Monday, October 22. There will be five investment rounds total– one per day until Friday, October 26.
  • Three winners each round receive a [C] Control postcard, a replica Midas credit card from the show, and Midas Money.
  • One winner each round receives a [C] Control postcard, replica Midas credit card, Midas Money, and a [C] Control poster autographed by J. Michael Tatum, voice of Soichiro Mikuni from the show.

Finally, one winner who has participated in all five rounds of the contest and accumulated the most total entries will receive a huge ultimate prize pack, featuring other anime about money and alternate worlds! This includes:

  • Spice and Wolf Complete Series BD/DVD
