What Happens When You Forget To Pay Amiami Edition
Read the guide here: buyfags.moe
As a lot of you may or may not know, buying figs and kawaii keychains of your waifu from Amiami begins with a pre-order months in advance. Then, once the item is released after what seems like an eternity later, you have - what I found out to be a very - limited timespan to pay up before they ship it to you. Order cancellations are not permitted.
>beautiful wall scroll of my waifu goes on pre-order
>it's "the one," pre-oder it instantly
>months go by but it's finally getting released towards the end of September
>forget to check e-mail for one week due to wageslaving
>open it only to find I missed the 5 day deadline by hours
>order permanently cancelled
>orders for item permanently closed
>panic, guilt, shame
>write a proper apology letter to them offering to still pay for it
>they hastily reply in a cold and direct manner
>basically tell me I should be more thoughtful of order release dates and the timezone difference and to be more careful next time
>they're not mad, just disappointed
>Their reply is received by a following email stating that my account has been locked for a month
This "I better seppuku myself for this dishonor" feeling is not something you want to feel anons, believe you me.
On the bright side, Yurucampfags are really getting spoiled with comfy merchandise lately.
>girls not actually in the sleeping bag
You have to put the daki into a sleeping bag.
At least you're not permanently banned. I didn't even know they did temp bans.
>what I found out to be a very - limited timespan to pay up before they ship it to you.
I always felt it was fairly generous, my biggest problem is when a lot of stuff gets delayed over a couple months and on the third month it all comes out leading to a massive bill.
Will this look retarded in real life?
I preordered two I already wear the one my mom made me.
Depends. Are you a cute jitome solocamping JK with a bun?
I don't want to blogpost too much here, so I'll get right to it. I'm making a big overseas move next year and need to sell as much of my collection as possible. This is a collection I've been building for eleven years, and I like to think my tastes are pretty varied so there's surely something for everybody. Everything is for sale. I've posted ads for all of my scales, and I'm working on articulated figures now. Consider listed prices to be starting prices.
Enjoy your shit products with the /a/utist tax added, I'll laugh with my otherworldly merino or alpaca wool scarves.
I hope you're not implying that your mother's handmade one isn't good enough.
I finally ordered two figures after wanting to buyfag for a year. They're not as expensive or flashy as other figures but I love them and Nozomi
Please keep her safe.
I already cleared out a place on my bookshelf for her to live.
Not at all. The handmade one's fantastic, but it's also nice having official merch.
op why are you even planing on giving these fags your business in the future?
Amiami is well-known for being strict when it comes to foreigners not paying for orders on time.
Why do they not just do it like Amazon pre-orders and handle payment automatically?
Because that would make sense. The Nips are set in their ways, even when it comes to payment systems.
Nigger how fucking dumb are you?
Shopping at Amiami is a privilege, not a right, クーズー！
>doing it your way
It's like you're both new here, or something.
Its like you don't fucking know how to punctual. God damn savage.
Nigger, nips still use fax as a regular means of communication.

>not a tank
I'd want a refund.
What's actually in it is dumb as fuck. Who'd want non-alcoholic booze?
Little girls can't drink, anon!
Because for Nips, 仕方がない is a way of life. Even if you could fix the issue by some some simple means, it still will not be fixed because the nips are set in their ways. The real issue is prices can fluctuate, but instead of telling people to just load a certain amount into their balance preemptively, they just tell them to pay when the official price is established.
To be fair, in the business world I can confirm major chains were using fax to send their orders as late as the year 2016.
Drossel arrived just fine, and now I can finally make the pose I've had in my mind since I bought Chogokin Drossel.
Sorry she had to be used goods.
She's in better condition than my Chogokin, though that's just because I live somewhere dusty.
Even if she was the Drossel that was used in that pic or those other lewd pics I'd treasure her all the more.
I'm considering buying some doujinshi off melonbooks, anyone know a forward/proxy which will package things somewhat discreetly? I have never purchased anything physical before, and I'm concerned about being outed to my town as a weeb.
>I'm concerned about being outed to my town as a weeb.
<Giving a shit about what normalfags think
Seriously though, unless it's illegal in your country why do you care if your neighbors know you like cartoons?

>Same shirt arrived in the mail on Thursday
>Went in to get package that night
>Post Office didn't want to dig for it so they told me it was "out for next-day delivery"
>Post Office intentionally left a slip Friday night at 4PM so they wouldn't have to deal with it until Monday afternoon
At least the Nips have an excuse for this level of intentional incompetency.
>Got NEET sibling to go pick up SAME shirt
>Shirt is on my bed while I'm stuck at work and won't get home until late tonight
Life is suffering.
Same has arrived!
It's a lot darker green than I thought the forest green looked like, but that's ok. Definitely nip sizes- it's a 2XL and it's tight around my shoulders, but makes me look like I've got a big gut with how baggy it is around the belly. It's got a thick fermenting/vinegary smell to it, so I think the proxy service was storing it near something acidic, but the shirt was in its original sealed packaging. I'll have to wash it off and wear it. But the question is... Should I wear it in Japan?
The Japs are the only ones who will truly be able to appreciate it.
>Nanachi Nendo delayed till December
I'm just sad.
The Nips have had a lot of delays recently, haven't they? I hope nothing's wrong and it has more to do with judging how much of a product will be sold rather than something more sinister.
Most of their figurines are made in chink factories. I'm guessing the foremen haven't been using their whips enough.
Supposedly there's been a large increase of orders for chinkshit in the last two months and my (chink) stuff has also taken longer than usual to ship due to the postal network not being able to handle it, maybe that affected the nips too.
What happened to the anon who posted the my little pony figure? Why is it deleted?
It's mostly because of the typhoons hitting Japan.
Have the typhoons stopped?
Japan is in a perpetual state of typhoonery.
Do old pillows ever get scanned? How long after release do new pillows get scanned? I goyed once and got something that's marginally better than chink bootlegs for five times the cost.
Erika figurine time?
>only available in a bundle with a much more popular character
>only available in a bundle with her girlfriend
>not wearing alligator kigurumi
Would a neutral expression help?
If you wear it in nipland, it's not going to make you look like some pathetic anime obsessed gaijin who's only interested in their country for cartoons that's not you, is it anon? except for people who already read MouTel, which isn't going to be that many, and they probably won't care.
Where the fuck are you checking? She's available separately everywhere I've looked, along with this figure in uniform.
I think referencing an obscure web manga like MouTele is high level enough to make you cross over from retarded weeb gaijin into my nigger territory for the people who get it.
Don't buyfag while horny. At least she wasn't too expensive, about 8500 yen pre-owned and unopened.
Were you really that desperate to lose your boner?
I've had three people comment my shirt since my flight. The nip flight attendant, a passing obaa-chan who thought it was cute, and a nip middle schooler who recognized it and gave me a "my nigga" nod/grin when we passed each other at the train station.
Suck it, anon.
Sounds like SAME shirts are going to be the next hot thing.
Get ready, Natürlich, you're about to become popular! If your manga ever comes back.
Damn, that sounds awesome anon. Now go to Kyoto, find Nobel, and get her off hiatus.
If you read the guide you could have avoided that.
That's kind of cool.

Got my Rem Keychains recently and ordered a cellphone case for Elizabeth Bathory and the prize figure for Jack the Ripper to go with my Nursery Rhyme which is the best figure we'll get of her besides garage kits since the anime was such a dumpster fire

Ok I'll be honest. Some Nip high school punk called me an idiot here in Sapporo the other night for wearing my same shirt while out doing hoboshit like laundry. Perhaps it's not all positive.
He probably just said that because you were white.

>Putting some figures away to switch out with other ones since I don't have a lot of space
>Lightly brush my index finger against Plutia's stand

I managed to save it in the package in case I can find some model kit person to super glue it back on, but I don't think I did anything wrong
If that was all it took to break it you didn't. It was just waiting to happen. Also wait hold up, there's a Plutia fig? I've been wanting one for a while, and especially an Iris Heart.
That's a goat, you know like baphomet.
How do proxy services ship porn, when Customs says no obscene stuff? Aren't the businesses worried about the law coming after them?
If they're worth their salt they'll ship them in non-descript boxes, but I'd ask them first. Also there's always the risk that customs open them up regardless. Funnily, the one time that happeend to me was a box with a bunch of random ero doujinshi (a couple loli) and a fumo. Fumo was checked and they didn't give a rat's ass about the rest. And yes, in Australia.
Cheaper still would've been not pointing it at her. Face it, you're wicked.
This is just hearsay, but some governments Canada may also keep a lookout for certain senders.
And if the company is foreign, customs can't do much against them since making sure shit is legal is the buyer's responsibility.
I can't help but cringe more than I should when seeing this shit.
Only with the Japanese V limited edition
Good luck, they suddenly spiked to $300 recently. Managed to grab mine for $50 just before that
Got my Jack set up, now need to wait for Nursery Rhyme and we'll be one step closer to Chaldea Children's Kingdom
Woke up this morning to a package filled to the brim with waifu. I was worried the fan wouldn't stay in her hand but it seems okay.10/10 would cherish.
Made me giggle.
Fug, forgot to add pics.
>the only figure of my waifu is either sold out or price gouged to ~$500
>ywn have a figure of your waifu
If 3D printing ever becomes affordable, you may be able to avoid the aftermarket hurdles of finding some figures.

You can find tutorials how to build your own. You could even cast a bronze statue of you waifu if you were dedicated enough! Please do note that the video is just for demonstartion.
Well damn. At that price it's not worth it compared to commissioning a nice plush. Also I have that fig second from the right too,
At least your waifu has a figure. The closest I might be able to get is 3d printing a model one day.
Oh, looks like they got busted. I wonder if they had to pay a fine or anything.
Friendly reminder not to roam the doujin corners of Akiba while shitfaced, /a/. That's 22,000JPY I'll never get back and potentially getting v& by customs tomorrow.
Best of luck anon!
Maybe try to package them in a stack with more innocuous shit on top?
Good luck in any case, Anon. We need brave souls like you fighting the good fight.
I was planning to pack them wrapped in black plastic bags and double wrapped in brown paper sack, and then putting them inbetween the plushies I bought for my siblings and the booze I bought for my bosses.
Are you returning to the US or some other country?
US, but I know at least one of those doujins could fall under obscenity laws for child pornography (since it has rape). Hence my careful packing to ensure those problem ones are wedged tightly and annoying inbetween everything so a nosey customs agent will simply assume it's a porn stack and move on to looking for explosives/drugs.
Someday I may get around to setting up all my WonFes exclusive Sega Hards
That day is sadly not today
One time I bought about 20 volumes of manga back to the US in a backpack. I was chosen for a bag inspection at the airport. So the guy asks if he can look through my stuff. I have two bags, he puts them on the counter. Only opens one, the backpack which is filled with books. He's slowing taking them out and looking at them, but all the while he keeps glancing at me to see how I'm reacting. I realize this and avert my eyes, looking at something in the distance in the other direction. He repeats this for a few items off the top of the bag, then says I'm good to go. Mainly I think they are looking for a nervous reaction from you.
Forgot to mention, there were rapish loli manga buried at the bottom, and a schoolgirl photo book. But I think he only saw Berserk.
>saber eating a burger
Why the fuck is this allowed.

>He doesn't know
Yeah, they don't even hide the fact that "random inspection" means "I don't like you" 90% of the time. Well, boarding the taim to the airport in about a half hour. I'll see you all on the other side in ~16 hours, or behind bars depending on what happens.
I have returned safely! I'm too damned tired to take pics of everything right now though.
Great taste, that Vampy one looks really good.
How much did you get that Alter figure for? It seems pretty rare.
This handheld mobile smugging device is smug for smugging on the go. Her white bloomers are also a nice touch.
Congratulations, I genuinely envy you.
I had this issue last month, pre-ordered some Persona stickers and forgot about them. Not a big deal, then I fell in love with a new figure and decided it was the one. Felt bad but had to cancel a pre-order for a figure releasing in 2 months and got this instead. I'm literally paying twice the amount though so it wasn't a bad deal for them.
Yeah, I'd do the same. My problem is that I'd get nervous trying not to be nervous like a fucking moron.
You've massive balls dude. Pretty sure loli is outright illegal here.
That's what they're trying to cause. Had he started looking a bit nervous the guard might have continued looking through the backpack.
What the fuck is wrong with me, I'm seriously considering dropping ~$400 on a plastic figurine. It's so expensive but it's the only figure (or real high quality merchandise if we're being honest) of my waifu. She has four different weapons and accurately-placed freckles. Should I become wageslave for her?
It's expensive because it looks like you're looking at ebay scalpers and you're buying the figure after it's been released. The pre-order price for it was about $100.
I just dropped $230 USD on >>878099 so I get the feeling to an extent (yours is obviously more), but it really does look fucking amazing. So why not if you have the cash?
Aren't custom commissioned Dakimakuras like $350? Seems a bit much to me.
Wouldn't know, I don't own any body-pillows right now. I might get one if I ever come to love a 2D character as much as some anons claim they do. Otherwise, I'd rather save the money for a figure, a house downpayment or a sex-robot in a decades time.

yet another proxy service:
Booth.pm is having a music event called Apollo 09. For nearly 2 days, from Nov 17th to Nov 18th, they sale a ton of doujin music they wouldn't sell any other time of the year. You can only purchase these works in this small window, even if it's digital.
There's a good deal of music I've found over the year that has been locked behind this event. So it'll be nice to finally get my hands on it. Link below is an example of something coming out during the event.
I'll be sharing what I got on here, /animu/'s Buyfag Thread, and the /v/ Share Thread.
Melonpan always outdoes himself.
I know that, and I'm still fucking kicking myself for not buying her when she was reasonably priced.
Your figure is great too, I can see why it was expensive. I can justify ~$200 for a figure, but I just don't know if I can shake that feeling that I'm spending almost half a thousand for a piece of plastic even if the freckles are hand-painted
>still unavailable in Australia
Fuck. I hope you Americans and Europeans are buying, and enjoying, Shimarin's beanie.
Holy shit, I found a seller listing her for only $230. This might be happening.
If I remember correctly between 5000 and 7000. Apparently only 1500 were made
Only 40 Eurobucks, it's tempting.
Unless you buy it used that's probably one of the better prices you're going to get for the figure in new condition.
How does one 'use' a figuri- ...EW!
It is preowned but never been opened apparently.
I've never had any desire
It's been a while since I bought any but I plan on getting some translated Manga. I didn't even know these got a German release.
Sage for massive normalfaggotry.
>german magus bride
Wonder if the villain will still be called "the wandering jew".
Just use your favourite search engine to search for "Siuil a Run". You can do it, Anon! Believe in the me who believes in you.
The one thing I bought today was MahoYome Merkmal, the guidebook. He is indeed called "der wandernde Jude".
Who get posters and banners here?
I get tapestries. I have about 10 at the moment, but only 4 on display.
They'd confiscate it if they cared. Nothing happens.
Just ordered my 3rd and 4th figures. I'm not normally a Miku fan but I love her seasonal figures, they're always so cute. I'm gonna find a new place to display them all as well.
This is a weird hobby, isn't it?
I had an unoffical one made years ago but that's it.
>dog is sick
>mum round to look after it while im out at work
>package came in mail
>she opened it
>oh god, was it the extremely lewd android 18 figure?
>it was 3 volumes of laid back camp, 4 of dungeon meshi, 3 of hakumei to mikochi and vol 1 of dr stone
>she unknowingly sat down and read them all
>thought it was 11am
>package came in mail
<she opened it
Why? Even my shittiest family members don't open my packages when they say "for anon" on the packaging.
There's something called trust between family members. You would let your waifu open them, right?
If your family can't approve of your waifu then its never a true marriage.
You do realize that the vast majority of people, and thus family members, are normalfags, right? And that the majority of parents are desperate to get grandchildren out of you?
So, how do you all pay for your things? I currently live at home still and have an allowance for doing errands and chores around the house, but I'm thinking of becoming a wageslave to afford some pricier figures and sets.
>So, how do you all pay for your things?
By being a wageslave who doesn't live at home. Then again I didn't buy many figures in the past few years.
That's because, in a Darwinian sense, it means they didn't fuck up raising you.
The more important question is, did she enjoy them?
A good chunk of my shit is gifted to me other times I use the works CC to buy shit because I'm allowed to do that.
"The korean borrowers comic was very sweet"
not sure if joking.
Thank god my older siblings had children, so the only one who cares any more is my dad who's angry that the family name will die out on his branch.
Turns out when you live on your own without roommates, pets, or family members who extort money out of you, and you don't have massive debt, after reaching a point where you can afford to live you generally have spending money. Some people use this on drugs/alcohol or nice dinners, while others simply use it to buyfag once or twice a month.
I know what you mean. One time while I was asleep because night shift a package with fragile arrived and I woke to them shaking it
Joking, not so much. I like to know what people who don't normally read things like such think of them.
Have a completed Combat-san. It only took me about three months to get around to building her. She has a nice butt. I'll build Hoihoi-san... Eventually, when I get around to it.
I am single, have paid my house and cars off, have no children, and earn a decent wage. I can buyfag to my hearts content and it doesn't worry me. Being a wageslave might have drawbacks, but being a wageslave in upper management in the military industrial complex has it's upsides as well.
This isn't making me feel any better.
Buyfagging is an expensive hobby. You might want to look into prize figs and character goods while money is tight. Remeber, only buyfag when you have the money to do so - it is a reward to yourself.
I have prize figures, I like to buy preowned from AmiAmi whenever I have cash, since I don't really do anything else with it. Some of them are really good for the price.
Nevermind, she sold out. But I won't give up hope.
Never give up I once missed a chance to buy mai waifus figure only to find her again 4 years later. Needless to say I did not miss that time.
Fuck I just saw https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?scode=GOODS-00221003-S001 today, but the orders are closed (and delivered NOW). I can only hope for a second run.
Anyone have any of the Okita scale figures? Which one's worth it?
Why does only she see it? Why is it only her?
I should open my packages when they arrive instead of all at the same time when I'm bored. Though maybe I can use them to build a wall like in >>880099
That's some cute neps you got there.
Join the military and get stationed in Japan. You'll have around $1500-$2000 in disposable income every month at the entry levels. Go Air Force or Navy and do good at whatever job you get then request to go to Nipland. Most people don't want to go there. For bonus points, find and request a technical MOS that is in demand in mainland duty stations. When you leave they will pay to ship all your buyfag shit for you.
Non-Americans need not apply, unless you want citizenship thrown in on top of that.
Unless you're a nigger, the "and get stationed in Japan" part is harder than you'd think. You don't just get to choose where you want to be stationed, and your superiors won't just station you somewhere like Japan unless you serve in very specific roles that tend to have very few job-transferable skills after you get out. Most likely what will happen (if you're Navy at least) is you'll serve your first two years with the promise that you'll get shipped there while ranking up while serving out at sea, the next two years you'll spend pestering them to go to Japan while at your duty station, your final two years you'll get stuck on a boat again with the promise that it "passes through Japan once in a while" only for your ship to get re-stationed in some shit hole like the coast of Africa or the Middle East, and then you'll sign a two year extension when they promise to send you to Japan if you do so, only to get stationed somewhere like fucking Alaska or the Californian coastline. They'll continue to promise you the world even while you're filling out your papers to get the fuck out.
I realize the dream of getting paid to fuck around on a boat or on base for 16 hours a day 6 days a week right next to the portal to Gensokyo for those two or three days a month you're actually allowed to go off-base to enjoy Nippon, but unless you're black or Mexican, they will never station you anywhere good and you'll get stuck on the shitty assignments with some female officer.

Because she's the only one with spiritual powah
They can run the gamut of quality depending on what companies you buy from, I'm not a big fan of the FuRyu prize figures but for their price you get what you pay for.
>lazy nep, PH, and Next PH
You have the whole neptune line now.
And with these two posts you now have both extremes represented. The truth lies somewhere in the middle.
So, why do you guys collect merchandise? Do you do anything with figures other than display them (like mini photoshoots or playing with them)? What's the appeal of collecting, and what makes a figure or an item "worth it" to buy?
Thread is slow, sorry if these questions are off-topic adjacent
For me it's about immortalizing something that can never be fully enjoyed as a new product ever again, and in the case of items for my waifu, it's about finding one more way to
worship the very ground she walks on adore her and say my good mornings/good nights to her since waifu merchandise is rare and far inbetween for her. For non-waifu purchases though, yeah, it's about immortalization and appreciation for what I love while making my life more beautiful. It's been shown that beautiful things make us happy, and that being happy from seeing beautiful things every day makes us healthier and more fulfilled human beings, so in this dark and depressing world, I'll take any chance or means that I can to increase my happiness.
It feels nice to have a physical portrayal of a character or mech I love. Looking at it gives me peace of mind. On top of that there's the anticipation of looking forward to new ones, hunting down old ones I missed out on and cataloguing them. It's easy to get really into it once you get started.
AmiAmi just released this 1/7 White Day Kotori Minami preorder. What does /a/ think? I love Alter's LL figures but I don't think I'll order this one, maybe if she was Nozomi
>On top of that there's the anticipation of looking forward to new ones, hunting down old ones I missed out on and cataloguing them.
I agree, I enjoy looking at figures and imagining them in my room, watching reviews and just enjoying the craftsmanship. MFC has made tracking my own orders a lot easier as well.
Pretty much >>880964
Whilst my BluRay collection is limited (under 20 sets) and I only have 2 figures. I believe that owning a very limited number of highly valuable masterpieces of a beloved character that's clearly been built with love is key. I'd rather 10 godly figures that make me smile than 1000 mediocre ones. Then again, I believe my bedroom to be a reflection of my mental landscape and therefore like to keep it clean, minimal and organised with a few things I love placed around for aesthetics.
I like being surrounded by cute anime girls, and I enjoy buying small other goods from shows that I really enjoyed. Honestly I should get into buying BDs to support shows, but for the time being buying merchandise is what I do.
It's an okay burd figure, I think it doesn't really highlight her best features.
>Release Learning with FGO figures
>Paul isn't to scale
It's the kotobukiya one
Pls no bully
No bully, just very unexpected in the lineup.
My first Alter figure. I especially love the lazer cut-outs on the collar and zettai ryouiki
Wish I'd known of the 4 Goddesses Online Noire figure but I've already got the lewd evening dress one on order. I also have the 4 Neptunia keychain plushies coming.
Those are some nice puffy thighs.
You should consider preordering super saiyan Nowa.
Pics 2 and 3 have really entrenched my belief that the NEXT forms would look a lot better without all the added bits.
I tried to pre-order a statue of Alex from Street Fighter III. He got delayed on their page every month for over a year as I recall. Eventually I just gave up and the deadline came and went. By the time he was out I couldn't even afford him anyway.
What exactly is the reason they don't accept advance payment? I really wanted that statue but getting strung along for 12+ months really makes me ask how much I want to buy something.
If you aren't at least 8/10 attractive and fit then it will look silly.
In the United States, only overweight with social disabilities will use it. Better off buying a similar style muffler from a a real clothing store. I'm sure there are plenty.
It's telling that the majority of the official art doesn't depict them with all that clutter and I make the point to get rid of it whenever I play the games if it's possible. The only exceptions are stuff like the angel halo or the cat ears.
So at least it's optional in that fig but personally I like it more when they show a lot of skin. Green Heart and Iris Heart are favourites partly due to that.
Oh nice that was quick too! Didn't realize Neptune was bigger but that's fine.
To every normalfag it will just look like a normal fucking scarf.
So I pre-ordered pic related 6 months ago on amiami and its finally come out. Thing is it has a crazy expensive shipping cost of 31 to 60 bucks depending on which option I choose. This is my first time ordering on amiami, my question being can I add more items to my order because at that price I can't justify buying just the one thing.
Yes, you can combine a new order with an old order, there should be an option when you checkout.
One of my favorite manga is finally getting an anime adaptation. Assuming they don't fuck it up (i.e. use CGI) then I'm definitely buying it on BluRay. I Must Have a High Quality Figurine of This Angle! I don't care if I have to drop a couple hundred USD on some custom one, she is my happiness.
Show/Manga: I Reincarnated into an Otome Game as a Villainess With Only Destruction Flags
Yeah, they tried to charge me $80 on an already incredibly expensive purchase. Ended up dogging them and buying the figure at a convention (still saved a lot), RIP that account though. It got locked so I'll probably make a new one and ship it to my PO box.
Looks cool, I'm gonna give this a read.
Sweet! Welcome to the cult of Katarina.
SIEG HEIL BAKARINA!
SIEG HEIL BAKARINA!
God I love this place.
I'm on chapter 4 already, this is so good.
Can we make a thread to stop derailing this one?
How do you guys deal with being patient? My first order took about 5 weeks to get here and it wasn't too bad of a wait since I had no experience or expectations, but I'm starting to feel discouraged now that I've been ordering more and have to keep waiting 3-5 weeks minimum for each order. I know it's worth it and I'm being a brat but it still kinda sucks.
When you've got dozen or more things on pre-order and many of them have the expected release date months or even over a year off, you just kinda stop "actively waiting" for things. Add to this upcoming stuff you're interested in but have no idea when they'll be up for order (let alone when they're being released), as well as possible (and usually highly probable) release delays, and you'll be in for a lot of waiting. With those, waiting just becomes a way of life rather than something that happens sometimes. They'll come when they come.
Find something else to do with your time and forget about it unless its a preorder. 3-5 weeks ain't bad compared to a solid 2+ months.
That's a brilliant fucking way to keep customers how do they stay in business.
Would this be too risky to get as a leaf? Asking for a friend.
She has posted pics of herself on twitter.
I went to her twitter and found nothing except good art, and this one comic "diary" post from 2016.
She titled it "今日の日記です", which translates to "This is my diary of today" or "This is the diary of today".
There is also another post about an Indian elephant T-shirt being for sale, which shows a female wearing it, and another post about her struggling with Photoshop.
I am convinced.
I guess she deleted the picture of herself riding a concrete lion.
I want to drink that Mana broth.
Anon, how in the balls did you get one shipped? I don't know what a good forwarding service is.
I'm not him, but I got mine through white rabbit.
See if you can buy it from a local distributor/store. If you can you're in the clear I think.
Just keep preordering shit until you can't remember what you have on preorder anymore so every month is a surprise.
There are no good forwarding services. Just try to find one that actually is honest and upfront about costs. I went through this one called ZenMarket and the hidden fees ended up making my shirt cost an extra $25 or so even though it was shipped as a parcel.
How do you even come up with all the funds for that? I just ordered a cast iron combo cooker to fulfill my yuru foodie adventures and that was enough for me. Well that and an unrelated fostex volume pot.
Big in japan is decent. 500 yen base + shipping cost and they'll combine orders from different stores into one box. Though sometimes their packing can be low quality.
kuronashi.com is about as simple as it gets
The figure is 7 years old, I highly doubt I'll be able to just on that account.
Almost everything they sell is in limited production and sells out except for the shitty figures that bin. A poorfag/idiot that can't pay for their order is nothing but a waste of time to them.
I want Mana to ride my concrete lion.
For one, they're Japs meaning its perfectly acceptable to tell people who're late to fuck right off and two you're a foreigner which means you're barely tolerated as is. Its a perfect business model you tardy fuck.
How do you deal with being a leaf while leafpost is on strike and Amiami refuses to even charge you for the biggest combined order that you've ever made until the strike is resolved?
Is this not a common feel? Should I just kill myself before getting the mail that my Cirno wallscroll order has been cancelled?
I don't know, I'm waiting on a charge for something I ordered but I'm sure they'll hold onto it until it ends. If it makes you feel better, I think they're being sent back to work soon.
Update on this. I was able to add to my order and I was going over it on my phone and their mobile site is complete garbage so when I pressed "next" years for next page so I can select shipping options it confirmed my order for shipping and automatically chose the most expensive option.
Their "Modify existing orders" option says "No records were found for the information you entered. Please update your request and try again."
I tried talking to customer service and they asked me to explain and haven't responded in 2 days. Now my order is processing for shipping and I can't fucking afford this shit. I messaged them again telling me to let me change my shots a cheaper option refund me the difference or expect to be get a charge back and me to get the shit for free. I hopefully that gets there fucking attention.
Congratulations you just got yourself banned from Amico. Good work baka gaijin.
To my knowledge, AmiAmi isn't accepting order modifications at this time. I've never tried to chargeback them so I don't have any advice other than to be more careful next time, I hope they don't ban you, good luck.
If shipping is already confirmed then they aren't going to refund you the difference or change anything because they physically can't. You likely just got yourself banned from AmiAmi and still won't get your shit (and they might still try to charge you anyways).
I've always been curious how a ban for that site works. Is it tied to your address? Your bank card? Surely they don't just ban your account assuming you won't just make a new one the next time you want something there.
I assume it's got to be tied to the card at least.
Good. It's a shit site and after this I didn't plan on using it again.
The site doesn't say anything about not accepting order modifications, if true it's pretty scummy to not advertise it.
Actually the site says "processing shipping (paid)" so it hasn't shipped yet i thought it already had. Charge back is from my bank and the company being charged back from can't do shit about it. I tell my bank these cunts robbed me and I get my cash back in my account.
Also I apologize for my many errors in my last post. My remote keyboard app gets autocorrected to shit and I was too pissed to proofread.
So, do you guys have "Why the fuck did I buy that??" stories?
<searching for some doujins for a time now
<spot really neat wallscrolls
<proceed to buy 14 (yes, FOURTEEN)
<mfw I spent 200 bucks on DIN B2 wallscrolls because I was retardedly horny
<mfw I still didn't find that doujin for sale
The courage to buy fourteen wall scrolls because your brain was full of cum
Hope you have lots of wall space. Are they at least good wallscrolls?
Are there region-locks or something for Japanese Switch games?
Nope, it's all region free.
The cartridges are, but I'm not totally sure on their online store.
Like with Vita, the cartridges are region-free but you can (legitimately at least) only link one PSN account, and foreign credit cards don't work, only foreign gift cards, which is a serious limitation for DLC.
Didn't the PS4 version come with English Subs unlike the previous game on the Vita?
I've got 戦車道、極めます with the code for the P40, the DLC seems to be region locked.
For Switch? Well there's his answer. For Vita? Yeah I bumped into that with a copy of Muramasa I bought locally that was from the USA and my PSN was Australia.
The asian version of DTM for the PS4 does have english subs I was playing it the other day.
> It's a shit site
Just stick to US based stores you fucking retarded faggot.
Still no response from the fags at amiami. I called them dishonorable so hopefully they will respond now or commit sudoku.
Fuck off dumb cunt it's a shit site with terrible support.
Since you're intent on shooting yourself in the foot, I really hope you live near convention locations because I doubt you're going to find as good of a selection at a gaijin comic book store as you would on AmiAmi.
>The site doesn't say anything about not accepting order modifications, if true it's pretty scummy to not advertise it.
I think it's a recent thing? I'm not sure, but I think at one point you could modify orders. They should add an addendum at checkout to clarify.
>it's a shit site with terrible support.
Funny how you're the only faggot stupid enough to have issues with it.
Based on how he's dealing with amiami he may want to steer clear of those places as well, his crippling autism will just get him thrown out of there as well.
Ooo. Taka Tony Arts look nice.
Someone bought it while I was waiting for the mail strike to end to place my order. Thanks for taking the risk off me, whoever bought that.
The first half of my order came in, now I'm waiting ~2 weeks for the next box. She's cuter in real life.
Not a LL fan but she looks cute.
I preordered a figure for the first time because it was cheap and I liked it, but now I'm having trouble deciding whether or not to preorder a ~$100 figure that I really want. I'm not sure if I want to promise AmiAmi that much money--15 bucks I can more realistically come up with down the line in case I forget, but what if I forget and suddenly I have to hand over 100 bucks or risk my account getting banned? Also at the risk of sounding like a newfag (because I am in regards to buyfagging), how much time does AmiAmi give you in advance warning of preorder payments? Is it the same as non-preorders?
They don't send reminders.
They'll send you the bill and you have 7 days to pay it. After that you can still pay late if you're lucky, but they'll free your item so anyone can buy it after that first week.
Fuck. So basically it's now or never?
Does anyone know if https://yuyu-tei.jp/ allows me to buy multiple copies of the same card? I need a few...hundred copies of a couple of cards.
And while I'm at the topic: can someone recommend me some TCG/CCG shops (besides Yuyu-tei and Bigweb)?
Yes, if you really want it.
If you don't know if you'll have enough money available that month, do what I do. Take an envelope and fill it with some money every month so you know you have enough when the time comes.
I preordered it. Didn't want to take the chance after looking at the other figures in the set selling for 5x the price or more.
>I need a few...hundred copies of a couple of cards.
Jesus, are you lining your walls with them or something?
They send you an email and give you 7 days to pay. If you're new to amico and ask for an extension it'll most likely result in a ban.
>Order package from Mandarake
>Oddly only DHL is available unlike the other times I ordered from them
>Alright, guess I'll use it
>See a bunch of horror stories for their reviews
I'm screwed, aren't I?
Maybe it's regional or I've been lucky, but I have never had any problems with dhl within yurop.
Let's just say when it comes to collecting certain cards I go full Grand Autismo.
I hope you're not one of those faggots who buy up a ton of shit to artificially increase and "secure" the value of your collection.
Woah..... for your coffee table.
I <3 dakimura; they are so pretty!
Now that I've spent a decent amount of money, I'm wondering how other anons keep track of their purchases? I've been using a calculator and MFC but I'd like a more professional method I haven't used Excel since high school
Why do you want to know how much money you've spent on figures? Just look at your bank statement and it'll tell you.
Not sure if joking but data collection is the most critical part of keeping track. All the fancy EXCEL or spreadsheets won't help you if your data is wrong.
I used MFC for a decade. At its largest my collection was nearly 900 items and MFC alone served my well enough.
That said, their manager used to include a very handy calculator which automatically displayed the total value of your collection, but since this year's site update it no longer works as well as it used to.
I've actually started using Excel, and it's quite handy. I wish MFC hadn't fucked with their calculator, that sounds like a cool feature.
