You linked to downloadable versions of both, but I thought Melonbooks DL worked even from overseas if you had a major credit card.

Oh, it's downloadable... That's why the doujin is so cheap. Well... let's see if I can buy it myself.

Forgive me for that, I'm still fairly new at this.

Just send $40 for now to help cover entrance/transportation fees and we'll work out a total after I've purchased what I can.

Awesome. Just sent the money. Afterwords, I may ask you to pick up a pikachu plush or 2 from the pokemon center, for my one friends girlfriend(She loves pikachu, and I thought it would be a nice present for her)

Were you able to get my other friends Gatchpon stuff? He also wants to know if you can include some Japanese candy, specifically Shinrabanshou Choco, if that's available by you. He says its a region thing

For an event like this, it not only depends on how many they bring, but if they'll let me buy more than one. I can certainly try though. Go ahead and send $40 for now and I'll see what I can do. If I get it, we'll work out a final total, and if I don't I'll refund it.

Okay, send $55 for now please, if you wanted SAL as usual (add another $5 for tracking).

Okay, I'll keep an eye out. Was there a price limit?

BTW, I did get the gatchapon figure he wanted, but I had to get the whole set plus one extra beforehand, so it was 1200 yen.

Awesome. He says about 500 yen for the candy is fine.

I also just got confirmation that they will be selling the Rachnera GK we couldn't get last time, but in limited amounts. Think you can maybe try to grab her first? Still seeing if I can maybe have them hold one, since they said it may be possible

I'll try to get that first, but definitely let me know if it can be held because that would be a great help.

Hello. There is some Monster Musume merch that I would like to buy from Comiket 90.

From the webpage, http://www.monmusu.jp .

The first slide image lists some merch. If possible I would like to get one of each of the 7 shirts for sale, and perhaps the snake tail pillow as well.

I can't guarantee I'll be able to get everything, but I should be able to manage something. Go ahead and send $200 USD for now and we'll settle up afterwards.

Ok. Sent the $200. As for shirt sizes. Large is fine. I know it will be hard to get one of each, but certainly happy with whatever you can grab. I don't believe they do reserves, but I wouldn't know where or how to ask them specifically.

Question: how hard do you think it would be to get some shushuroku figures for non-crazy prices? Like around 3000¥ or less price range. (maybe 4000 for certain ones, up to 6000 for mokou, Sakuya, or satori)

edit: I have sanae, patchy, nazrin, yuuka, and komachi already, looking for pretty much everyone else.

Hello there,

I've never done this before, but I'm wondering if you could help me get these posters (and maybe find more?):

http://page9.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/k184487893
http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/994916984001

I've been searching to nearly no avail for these store bonuses (with even a few more I'd like but just aren't for sale/bid anywhere from my searches and just show up on blogs where navigating is like running around in circles). I'd like them for collection purposes and some other related things.

(I'm assuming the ones linked are roughly about $17 bucks(?), but I know very little about yen to dollars.)

Suruga-ya is out of stock, unfortunately. Also, the Yahoo auction link is for little postcard-sized images, not posters. I should be able to get you them for around $30-35 shipped if that was OK.

I'm not really sure where else I could get them at this point though. I know there are second-hand stores in Akiba and the like, but trying to dig them up can be time-consuming. Just throw any other auctions or Suruga-ya links at me and I'll get them that way.

Will they restock that one, or am I out of luck?

I can't find any other Suruga-ya or auction links for rarer ones unfortunately (there is this one, on sale I think? http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/185029211001). Majority of my searches lead to blogs (which give some information on which stores had them as bonuses) but very little to actual buying them stand alone.

You're out of luck until someone sells them another copy, yeah. The other link is available though, should be another $8 or so.

If you're that determined to collect them, the best way I could recommend is to just periodically search Yahoo Auctions, Suruga-ya, and maybe Mandarake. There's another auction site called mbok that might help.

Also, I would like to take this opportunity to announce the formal acceptance of Comiket 90 requests. The process is the same as always: send me a list, I'll give you an estimate, and you send as much of that as possible before August 10th. I will be accepting requests for Day 2 this time around but I won't be making them high priority. Anything I can't get at the event I'll attempt to get in stores. No 18+ items.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR UPDATES REGARDING EVENTS! ONLY CONTACT ME AFTERWARDS IF YOU HAVE ADDITIONS OR CHANGES TO YOUR ORDER.

Wait, so you mean you will only accept request for Day 2? Or you just meant Day 2 will be low-priority unless it can only be retrieved in booth?

In any case, I will wait a bit until the circles I had in my sight start making their announcements.

Last time I only accepted like two requests per person for day 2 and nothing at all for Reitaisai, but this time I will make more of an effort to get stuff, but not as hard as previous years, basically. I'm probably not explaining things clear enough but I'm trying to say "send all your requests for day 2, don't get your hopes up if you request something super-rare".

The exchange rate for GBP x everything hurts right now but I doubt it's gonna get any better so let's roll out the big ticket items... :fail:

First a bunch of non-comiket stuff:
トライアンソロジー~三面鏡の国のアリス~ (3240円)
https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/detail/detail.php?product_id=170344

ROSE GUNS DAYS ベスト盤 (2160円)
https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/detail/detail.php?product_id=170343

^Both of these come out on the 28th August

なぞっておぼえる 大人の漢字練習 改訂版 (2720円)
http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/176001955001
^Buy this asap if you can

Aaaand for comiket:
---上海アリス幻樂団
旧約酒場 ~ Dateless Bar ”Old Adam” (756円)
https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/detail/detail.php?product_id=173048

---四面楚歌 (西I24b)
秘封祭 (2052円)
https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/detail/detail.php?product_id=170335
(An all ages game, despite the slightly risque cover.)

More to come for comiket ofc but I'm gonna try and keep it under control this summer because of above mentioned awful exchange rate. And because I'm running out of space on my bookshelf lol.

I guess I should've stated it before, but I won't be getting the new Touhou CD at the event. I should be able to get it from stores when it's released at the end of August with no problem, however.

bookworm: $130 should be OK for now.

Dratini: Send $30 for now please.
