It seems that the ban affects only Avex Pictures.
Doesn't ship oversea ?? ..... well ... you can always get a proxy service like buyee, tenso, etc to get you a Japan address and fwd the mail back to you.
Hasn't that been the case anyway for years ... sales to overseas purchasers don't count.
It is a very stupid thing to do anyway (assuming that it does cover SKE items). It's not as if they are losing out on international sales, I cant go into my local HMV and buy a SKE disk or go onto my local Amazon and buy a locally released SKE disk (I wish I could, it'd save om shipping!).
All it will do is anger people and force them to use a reshipper, thus costing them more, thus probably meaning they spend less on actual goods as more of their total budget will be going on the shipping process rather than the goods themselves.
Does explain why it wouldn't let me pre-order the new album via Amazon JP though
I contacted Tenso and asked if they were also affected by this export ban. this is what they answered me
Well ... since i can't find any kind of anoucement on the avex site, I'm still not sure if the use of proxy services would work or not.
But there are soo many label companies.
Well there are two forms of proxy companies so that would complicate things further ... from my understanding Tenso just provide you an address in Japan which reships what you purchase to you but you still make the purchase yourself (I think, I don't actually use them) whereas companies like FromJapan make the purchase for you as well, i.e. you pay them, they then buy the item, receive it and send it on to you.
The first of these could still be seen as a foreign purchase from Avex's perspective as a foreign payment type (non-Japanese card) is being used whereas the latter has the item purchase as being a purely Japanese transaction and its none of their business really what happens after that.
Right now, the thing is that Avex Trax is not under the ban. So, we can still purchase SKE, Kisumai, Koda Kumi etc... releases. Through CD Japan. There was an official announcement about it on Weibo ("According to CDJapan’s official Weibo account this does NOT apply to Avex’s other subsidiaries. As mentioned in the original article, only products published by Avex Pictures will be affected.") (source), so I think, we're safe now. Let's hope it'll stay like this in the future too.
Amazon JP was already d*cking around with orders already, even before the "Avex ban" came, so...
Did anyone manage to record:
w/ Jurina, Nao, and Dasu?
Found it on YouTube but the quality is, as usual with YT uploads, pretty low.
True, but they may deal with things in different ways.
Anyway, it was just a assumption.

some sightings of SKE doing video shoot with WORLD ORDER were spotted:
I think it's a CM, its too early for a MV....or maybe the MV is for Vacancy ?
EDIT:I didn't see Chikako...so this means it's certainly not a MV for Vacancy
I really hope it's for MV, I remember their MV with AKB, which was also pretty nice
(So MV for World Order, not for SKE)
Also the member-choice is interesting imo, I see Ryoha, Kumachan, Egochan, Ruka and Chikako, and two I don't recognize, some speculate about Saanan and Yuzuki.
yeah I can see Saanan and Yuzuki, smh they're all young generations of SKE, made me enthusiastic about it XD
More work for young gens!
All the cool WORLD ORDER things happen without Sae -.-
Yup, it's Saanan and Hidakakonbu
Man... that means I can't get the Pripara Musical DVD with Churi in it...
