Kourindo - Buy Stuff from Japan! - READ FIRST POST
« on: June 02, 2009, 05:03:33 am »
As it as been established, I am willing to help people buy stuff from Japan at more affordable prices. You pay what I pay, taking things like exchange rates and shipping and other fun fees into account. All I ask is for a little patience and a little trust. Here's how the process will usually work.

1. You tell me what you want.
2. I give you an estimate on how much it will cost in total to get what you want in your hot little hands.
3. You send as much of the estimate as possible to me (IMPORTANT: SEND IT AS A PURCHASE PAYMENT SO I RECEIVE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS. MY ESTIMATE WILL INCLUDE PAYPAL FEES SO PLEASE DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.)
4. I look for and hopefully buy what you want, then I report back, and either give a partial refund if everything couldn't be found, cost estimation was off, etc.
6. You pay me any remaining fees.
7. I ship out your stuff.
8. Hooray!

I strongly recommend Paypal, but other methods can be worked out, maybe.

Although I understand you are giving me money to perform a service, I want to stress a couple of things.

1. I have a full-time job
2. I like to dabble in making fan-make books and merchandise, not to mention attending events where those items are sold.

I would like to prioritize these two if possible, so please understand if it takes a long time to address a request, particularly one that's more complicated than ordering something from an auction site.

Still, I will buy almost anything for you, provided I can find it (although links to store pages will greatly improve your chances of me accepting to help). I also reserve the right to NOT buy something if I find it too racy and/or in poor taste. That includes hentai of any kind, books, pillowcases, those goofy mousepads, etc.

When you tell me what to find, please be as specific as possible, otherwise I might not buy what you want. This is most important for things like comics. Also, I can buy stuff from events like Comiket, to a point. I'm not going to wait hours in a line for one thing, but if you have a favorite circle selling some stuff at a particular event, give the event info and the circle info and I'll see what I can do.

I can buy stuff from numerous stores in Japan, Amazon.co.jp, Yahoo Japan Auctions, and other Japanese websites, but at the moment I am limited by the fact that I don't have a Japanese credit card. Sometimes I can use my US one, but it'll have to go by a case-by-case basis.

For those who want to buy Touhou stuff but don't know where to start, here are a few websites for reference. They're all in Japanese, but it shouldn't be too hard to find stuff if you click on Touhou-related links.

www.melonbooks.com - Mostly focuses on CDs, games, and comics.
www.toranoana.jp - General doujin goods and comic store.
www.akibaoo.com - Another doujin store, smaller than the other two, but they have a greater focus on music and merch, as well as figures.

I've seen comics, keychains, trading cards, playing cards, cell phone straps, CDs, games (official and fan-made), buttons, pencil boards, and figures. Comics are anywhere from 500-1000 yen, keychains are usually 800-1200 yen, straps 500-700 yen, CDs 1000-1500 yen, and figures 3000-7500+ yen.

Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, Shoot the Bullet, Double Spoiler, Fairy Wars & Impossible Spell Card: ~1000 yen
Immaterial and Missing Power, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, Hopeless Masquerade, & Urban Legend in Limbo : ~2700 yen
Hisoutensoku: ~2000 yen
Everything else: ~1500 yen

STUFF FOR SALE NOW

Everything that is being sold from my circle (Pasu's book, plastic file folders with designs by other non-Japanese artists)

New Hori-ZUN Study Guide 3 (which is monochrome). I also have Reimu Burger shirts for $20 USD.

I am going through some of my old stuff and selling things I don't want anymore. It'll be cheaper than buying new/direct and most of the stuff is in good condition. If you want multiple things, I will give you a discount on shipping, maybe.

Various Disgaea, Phantom Brave & Makai Kingdom Japanese comics. Mixed 4-koma and story series. If you want more info, let me know. $8 shipped apiece.

If you are interested, post in this thread or PM me. My Paypal address is penguinman26*yahoodotcom. (The * means @) Please send the money as a purchase payment, make sure your shipping address is up-to-date, and write in the comments what you ordered.

No, seriously, make sure your shipping address is recent. Even if you PM me your new address, I may forget to check before shipping it out due to the volume of orders I have.

Happy shopping!

Heya forza. Got 3 more requests if possible. These 2 monster musume I beleive are coming to an upcoming wonderfest. Know anything about that festival(I think in augest, and think you can get the two? Also, maybe any other of the MonMus girls, like Rachnera, that we missed last time

I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it to Wonderfest yet but I'll consider it.

I'll look around for the gacha figure too. I know they have stores where they sell them, so I'll check there since it'll likely be cheaper than trying to get it from a machine.

I know going to wonder fest is a bit out of the way, thats why I wanted to give you as much of a heads up as possible. Hopefully you can make it.

Awesome, hope you can find it. Now since this is for my friend, you can ship to italy right?

Hello.

I reigstered on these forums because i am desperate to get my hands on Toho Speed albums (01,02,03 and maybe 04 if its already out) from LiLa'c Records. I tried and checked everywhere i could but it seems to be impossible to get these shipped to Europe.

Would it be possible to somehow get these and what would be the estimated cost with shipping to Europe?

Thanks in advance.

I checked online stores and it seems that only 2, 4, and "Vertex Tuned" are available in the series, at least from stores. If you ask closer to Comiket, I might be able to check if they bring the others to events.

If you wanted just those three albums, it should be around $60 USD shipped via unregistered air mail.

Hey Forza. Just checking in if you were able to get that Gatcha prize. Also wondering if you figured out if you would be able to make it to the summer wonder fest next month for those monster musume figures/kits. Its about a month away now.
