    Trouble is having a way to feedback that this is an unwanted and pointless. If someone was in Japan they could complain to Management at a handshake event but outside of Japan I'm not sure of any real way of complaining.

    Apparently the source of the ban on foreign sales is Avex Trax so I guess we know who actually needs to be complained too, (source: I complained to CDJapan and asked who was the source and got a nice email back from them explaining the situation and stating that they are really not happy about it).

    Thought, CDJapan have their own proxy service, I wonder if they can sell to themselves ....

    Google to Wikipedia:
    "Avex Trax(エイベックス トラックス Eibekkusu Torakkusu?) is a record label owned by Japanese entertainment conglomerate Avex Group. The label was launched in September 1990, and was the first label by the Group."

    Wikipedia lists SKE48 as on of the Avex Group's acts.
    "SKE48 (S.K.E. Forty-eight) is a Japanese idol girl group produced by Yasushi Akimoto. The group performs at SKE48 Theater on 2F of Sunshine Sakae in Sakae, Nagoya. Avex Group is its current official label."

    Then there is our own wiki page on SKE48:
    "They are currently signed under avex trax, originally from Nippon Crown Records."

    I know avex has become quite restrictive with overseas sales (wonder why), but how does it influence the dvds from other groups? Or is the restriction due of the dvds/bluray prices?

    I've just taken a quick peek at Amazon Japan to look at the current situation regarding HKT48 BDs and DVDs (which I think are distributed by Universal?):

    Can be shipped to the UK: 5th Anniversary BD & DVD, Sashiko du Soleil BD
    Can't be shipped to the UK: Summer Hall Tour BD & DVD, Sashiko du Soleil DVD

    It all seems very random!

    EDIT: I've just looked at CD Japan, the most recent HKT48 set which appears to be available for UK shipping is the 2015 Zenkoku Tour BD & DVD, neither of which can be shipped to the UK from Amazon.

    Post has been slow this month (I'm still waiting for my NGT48 CDs for instance) but I've had a few things come ...

    apr001.jpg

    AKB48 47th - Shoot Sign - Types A-E
    Keyakizaka46 4th - Fukyouwaon - Types A-D
    Koji Matsuri ~Kojima Haruna Thanksgiving Day & Graduation Concert~ BD Boxset (*)
    AKB48 Isho Zukan (Costume Catalog) Hokago no closet Book
    Iriyama Anna 1st Photo Book - Utsukushii Tsumi
    Various magazines

    (*) despite the Avex Trax tomfoolery this seems to still be shipping internationally.

    As it would seem that some things which I would like are now not as easy to pickup (due to above mentioned cockwombliness) I have been picking up a few older things from various sources as well ...

    apr002.jpg

    AKB48 AKB ga ippai Summer tour 2011 Special Box - DVD
    AKB48 Super Festival Nissan Stadium 2013 DVD
    AKB48 in a-nation 2011 DVD
    SKE48 Autumn Tour 2010 Final Ase no ryou wa Hanpa janai DVD
    SKE48 ni ima dekirukoto 2011 DVD
    AKB48 Team A 5th stage - Renai Kinshi jourei - DVD
    AKB48 Team B 3rd stage - Pajama Drive - DVD
    AKB48 Team B 4th stage - Idol no Yoake - DVD
    AKB48 27th - Gingham Check - Type-B
    Not Yet 4th - Suika Baby - Type-B

    Given that they are all second hand I'm quite happy with the condition of them in general although the outer box for the 2011 summer tour set did get slightly damaged during shipping.

    Right, overcoming slow post being slow I've had a few things come in the last month or so .... new stuff ....

    new.jpg

    NGT48 1st - Seishun Dokei - Types A-C .... CDJapan sent these out (individually) in quite big boxes (due to external posters) which meant they took ages to arrive using SAL. I did have the amusing incident of my postman knocking on my door and say "ah good, you're in ... I'll be right back" and then coming back with his van and about a 2 foot pile of various parcels (including the boxes for these)!
    Nogizaka46 3rd Album - Umaretekara Hajimete Mita Yume - Types Ltd, A & B
    AKB48 48th - Negaigoto no Mochigusare - Types A-C .... I've taken part in the Stage48 election exit poll ... have you?
    Jonishi Kei (ex-NMB48) - Shogai Jyonishi Sengen BD - Making of BD for her photobook releases

    Eto Misa Photobook - Hanashi wo kikoka - Very, very nice
    AKB48 2017 Election Guide Mook
    Couple of magazines

    On top of this I also received various non-48/46 Group releases including CDs by TrySail and concert BDs for Kamen Joshi.

    Got my copies of Negaigoto no Mochigusare today, on the last day to vote in the sousenkyo. I was worried that they wouldn't arrive in time. I ordered from the same place using the same shipping method that I usually do but they've never come this late before. Just had a quick question, one of the photos I got was of a member I don't recognize. Can someone tell me who she is?

    My copy of the RH Setlist Best 100 2017 BD set arrived today. It took just a little over 34 hours for the package to arrive here from being picked up in Japan, DHL is getting faster these days!

    Been a bit busy with real life stuff ... so had quite a few things come since my last post ...

    cds1.jpg

    AKB48 49th Single - #Sukinanda - Types A-E
    Nogizaka46 18th Single - Nigemizu - Types A-D

    cds2.jpg

    Keyakizaka46 1st Album - Masshirona Mono wa Yogoshitaku Naru - Types A & B
    SKE48 21st Single - Igai ni Mango - Types A-D
    HKT48 10th Single - Kiss wo Matsushikanai no Deshouka? - Types A-C

    I would note that I've been having all sorts of issues with Amazon JP and poor packaging of orders. All of the cases for the SKE48 release were damaged (in some case quite badly) due to them just being thrown into a loose jiffy bag rather than being shrink-wrapped onto some cardboard in a box. They gave me a full refund but that is not the point. The AKB48 CDs were shipped in the same way but fortunately there was only a small crack in one case.

    cds3.jpg

    NMB48 3rd Album - Namba Ai ~Ima, Omou Koto~ - Types A-C
    AKB48 So Senkyo! Mizugi Surprise Happyo 2017 - Election results mook.

    rh and mags.jpg

    AKB48 Request Hour Setlist Best 100 2017 BD Boxset
    Abiru Riho (ex-SKE48) 1st Photobook - Riholiday
    Misc magazines

    A few more old things as pictured ...

    old.jpg

    And, for the giggles, a couple of Nogizaka46 colour switchable light sticks ...

    I've been having problems too with Amazon.jp's packaging, in fact the DHL guy yesterday expressed his own surprise at the battered box and invited me to check tbe contents, but fortunately all was well with my SukiNanda CDs which were shinkwrapped on cardboard. I'd much rather use CDJapan as their packaging is so much better but they don't discount the prices of new releases.
