Hiya again! I'm back. Doujins still haven't gotten here, but I'm expecting them this week or the next (postage has been terrible lately, though, so who knows) and I'll let you know when they do + send you that extra $10.

So, uh, turns out there's an event gonna be happening soon this month for my favorite artist, and they're selling some new straps... along with a bonus pin if you spend enough money lol.
Here's the site for it:
http://pixiv-zingaro.jp/catalog/sidu

I'm a bit strapped for cash, so before we get into it too deep, how much do you think it'd cost (in USD) for you to get to it? If you can, of course. October 6th to 18th. Can't find an entry cost?
Apparently the straps I'm interested in aren't in boxes, so I'm assuming they're individual sale? If they're blind I will absolutely lose my mind, but alas... I can only hope.
If I can get a pricepoint on travel and entry and etc, I'll see about what I can buy from them?

Cheers!

This is in Nakano Broadway which isn't too far away. Probably would only be around 600 yen round trip. There's no entry fee, but from the looks of it, a lot of the items come in blind boxes. Could you point out which straps you wanted?

Oh, wonderful!
Looking to buy from http://imgur.com/3FZ6JEv and http://imgur.com/SjQK2XC. Are they blind? Good god, capitalism will kill me.
Thank you!

It doesn't mention it unfortunately. How did you want to go about doing it in either case?

Oh, jeez. Yeah, I figured as much... I can only hope that they're open, otherwise I'm preeetty screwed.
Turns out I've got a pretty big demand for a mass order, and a couple I really need to get, myself. One question, before I get into the nitty gritty: if they are blind, would you be able/willing to open them (and, of course, buy any you open) and check until you've gotten a character, or hit a price maximum? Which is pretty overcomplicated, and if not, that's fine, but oh, boy. It's unfortunately very late, but I'll have some kind of visual thing made up for tomorrow.

If it's a bunch of straps (and I'm eyeing a postcard set), do you have any vague estimate on shipping?

Super, super sorry that this is such an ordeal.

One edit, that I thought of immediately after: You don't have to go as soon as the event starts, of course; if you wait a couple days from when it starts, I'll scour the internet (+ I follow a lot of Japanese people into the same stuff) and check for any potential pictures of the merchandise to check for confirmation on open/blind straps?

I probably wasn't going to go until the 10th at the earlier, so that's fine. I could certainly buy until I hit a certain character but you'd have to set the limit. There's also a chance I could buy one from a second-hand shop but that's assuming I can even find it.

Shipping depends on the weight but it could probably be under or around $10.

Okay, sorry for such a big delay!
Good news is that the charms aren't blind, so I don't have to pull out my hair over getting random draws. Bad news is that apparently the demand is so big that they sold out of some of the merch & had to (eventually) restock after just the first day, so I'm not sure on how many of these you'll be able to get.

Here's what I'm requesting from the exhibition:
http://imgur.com/a/2HenY

Here's a breakdown of what everything is, lol.

Postcard set A: 500 yen

Kagerou Project charms (image #2):
500 yen x 17 straps =  8500 yen.
If you can't get all of the ones I've listed, please just get as many as you can.

Neru charms (image #3):
500 yen x 8 straps = 4000 yen.
Just get one of each not crossed out in the picture, if you would. Again, of course, if you can't get all of them, then get as many as you can (provided there's some there... Christ).

Total: 13000 yen, plus your approximate travel fee, plus your approximate shipping fee.

Give me a total for this and I'll tack on the $10 I owe you for the doujins, just for sake of convenience. By around when do I need to pay by?

Thanks a million!

Go ahead and send $100 (on top of the $10) and we'll settle up afterwards. Try to send the money by Sunday if possible.

Polo: It seems only the K-On CDs are currently available for purchase. (Yellow button means in-stock). If you were OK with just those two albums, send $20 for now please.

Also, I am now taking requests for M3 and Fall Reitaisai. For M3, I'd like money by the 26th, and for Reitaisai, just whenever you can manage it.

Okay, the $110 is sent, thank you! Sorry about the delay, I had to get the money in order.
I know this might be asking too much, but would you be able to send me a picture (or a list, or something) of what you were able to get, when you go? That way I can organize refunds and such before having to wait for a package to get to me.

Forza, could I check if it is possible to order stuff that was released this Kouroumu? I have a couple of doujins in mind so maybe you could lump it together in the same shipment?

Yo Forza! Box came in Charismatically. イカよろしく~

Niece will be happy. But first she needs to earn them.

Will unpack the Yotsuba! soon and find fitting locations for them. Same goes for the Figma He and She.

Edit
Yo Forza, I wish to get only two things from two booths:
  • Ryuuichi and Warugaki's latest books from space:  た-41b        (Warugaki will probably sell his latest Ganbare Kogasa-chan and Ryuuichi this
  • And from Mizuki Hitoshi his latest work/volume of his 4koma, space: た-15ab


Send my regards to them. Oh btw, Warugaki and Ryuuichi might try to give you their work for free because Waru is expecting you. I am not sure what to exactly think of this. I mean, if I were in person there it would be "equivalent exchange" of gifts and books. However, I think it would be proper to just buy them right?

If so, let me know how much I need to send ya.

Hello again, Forza. Sorry for taking too much time before placing my order.
Here are the stuffs I want you to get from Autumn Reitaisai:

https://twitter.com/f13mad/status/782731914083864577
https://twitter.com/Y2_sichirin/status/786947667221807104  (The Sagume book, not the Kokoro one. That's an H-book, I think)
https://twitter.com/aono3/status/781076749496889344
https://twitter.com/eseneko/status/772379937755979776
https://twitter.com/mokokiyo/status/777163951306006528

A good portion of them are Anthology books with no price tag attached, so it may be difficult to get an exact estimate. But I counted them to be around 10000 Yen in total. Please tell me how much we should send you if you know the exact price.
Thanks, Forza. I'll be counting on you.
