I now have 465 games, of which 245 complete games.

The total number of jap game boy games, in my document, is 772 games.. There are probably a few I have missed. This only includes the original games , which are usually grey. No black carts, mainly because I find the text "Color" on the side to be ugly... and because they are often RPGs.

I think I will not focus so much on collecting them from now on... start to feel that I have enough.

I collect a few, but mainly just the JP edition ones I really like as duplicates.

I'm after a reasonably priced loose Ninja Ryukenden actually.  Boxed go for a fair bit, but if a good opportunity came up...

The only Japanese Gameboy games I own are Zoids Densetsu and R-Type II. I hope to eventually buy more though.

I once had it loose, but at the time I thought my boxed Scandinavian edition should be enough.

Yes certain boxed games are quite expensive. I only have three boxed Rockman World games myself. Not that they are super expensive but I prefer to buy in lots so I can at least get my money back....

Some of them I like mainly for the artwork, such as Wizardry , Heiankyo Alien or Mercenary Force. There really is a lot of great artwork on the boxes... I could mention 50 others...

I got a JP Mercenary Force in a lot and really loved the artwork...  
I was so pleasantly surprised when I played it for the first time - reminded me of Guwange!

I just bought the EU version today so that I can play through it in English.  The art is nonsensically ridiculous in comparison.

side note - do you know anyone that re-flashes gameboy games?  
I'm getting a new flashcart but I'd like to patch a few JP games to their English versions...

No, but I'd like to do that too.
Have my eyes on "For the Frog the Bell tolls", but if there is a rom for other rpgs such as Magic knight rayearth that would be sweet.

I just own JPN cart only versions of Super Mario Land, Parodius, SaGa 2, and the GB Color game Owarai Yowiko no Game Michi: Oyaji Sagashite 3 Choume, which I got in a lot and tried to play a little of (It does have a few fun mini-games). Is it based on an anime or something?

The only jpn gameboy game I own is Pokemon Green. If I find any other games for crazy cheap I may pick them up, but most games I want are cheap enough for North American copies.

I have quite a few, a lot of great GB games are Japan only. Among my favorites that I own are Shin Chan 4, Sailor Moon R, and Magical Taruruuto Kun.

I have about a hundred or so, mainly mahjong, puzzle, sport, train sims and racing games, basically anything playable, so no RPGs.

I have about 55 games so far, cart only. There are alot of cool games released in japan that never hit the states. Even if they did, the artwork on the JP carts is SOOOOOOOOOOO much better IMHO.

As one of the writer/editors on the English patch for this game, I recommend it!
