Just looked, yep, it looks like on the back of the manual they put a sticker with the serial number near the bottom right.

Above it there looks to be a stamp of the retailer who sold it (complete with phone number...hmmm..*picks up phone*)

There's also a date written in pen, I'm assuming the date it was sold to the customer? I can't imagine it would be the date the retailer purchased it. I think they filled mine in wrong, there's a 7 in the spot for the year, and an 8 in the spot for the month, day is blank. I'm assuming it was supposed to be Aug 7th.

It looks like all this would have happened at the time of purchase. Customer buys unit, dealer opens box, stamps manual with their store info, writes in the date, and peels a sticker off the box/piece of paper inside box. All this would be for warranty purposes.


Ah, your explanation makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately it seems like whoever sold me that Virtual Boy might have lost the sticker with the serial number on it (the one that would be peeled off and stuck on the instruction manual) since I can't find it anywhere in the box. Probably not a big deal though, everything else was as expected.

Just a quick question for all Japanese Virtual Boy owners out there. Should the serial number appear anywhere else in the package (e.g. box, manuals etc.) aside from the bottom of the VB itself?

I just saw a boxed VB for sale at an online store that shows the serial number on the bottom unit as well as on a sticker pasted on the last page of the instruction manual. Is that normal?
