    My copy of Yuria's 2nd photobook is still in the post at the moment but I have had a few other things worth a mention this week or so ...

    newstuff.jpg

    Ishida Anna (ex-SKE48) 1st Photobook
    Iwasa Misaki (ex-AKB48) - Saba Kaido (Tokubetsu Kinen Ban) Ltd Ed.
    =Love (Sashihara Rino Produced) 1st Single - =Love - type-A
    NMB48 Graduation BD Boxset (Jonishi Kei, Yabushita Shu, Fujie Reina)

    Anna's photobook is really nice. The only downside, apart from the availability, is that it isn't as large (as in number of pages) as a normal full photo book.

    And a few older things ...

    olderstuff.jpg

    AKB48 - Tokyo Autumn Festival 2010 Boxset
    AKB48 - AKB48 Zenkoku Tour AKB ga Yattekita Boxset
    AKB48 - AKB104 Sokaku Matsuri / AKB48 Bunshin no Jutsu Tour Boxset
    AKB48 - AKB48 Request Hour Setlist Best 100 2010 Boxset

    I've wanted the Autumn Festival boxset for a while but finally managed to pick it up for a reasonable price second hand.

    I also picked up the new Trysail album at the end of August.

    Experience with Buyee review

    http://buyee.jp/

    So after seeing the STU netshop 2 months ago was releasing Yukata shots of the girls. I knew I had to get my hands on them lol Since it was really their first ever official goods and they were really cute in it.

    After knowing the fact that buyee does yahoo auction and there are tons of photocard bids that people offer I decided to try it out for the first time as a experience.

    I was originally suppose to get the Iwata Hina sets...

    IMG_20171107_143039.jpg

    But I ended up getting some of her best buddies too (Which I didn't get Takino Yumiko cuz her set was ridiculously expensive and Isogai Kanon's was harder to get than I imagined o wells)

    IMG_20171107_141220.jpg

    And then I had too much fun sniping the 300 yen deals and so ended up like this :^^;:

    IMG_20171107_140919.jpg

    SO I did a little math and all this rounded up to around $280 (just the goods)

    Then I thought to myself its still aight cuz I was splitting the international shipping fee with my friends which was around $80 SAL.

    But then I was noticed that there is also a domestic fee for each product sent to their warehouse and it's on the buyer (me to pay). And at that moment I knew my butt is effed because I made over 30 transaction and each transaction for domestic shipping was around 150-300 yen. Oh and this is just my share, I'm not even counting my friends share...oh...and the customs actually picked up our crate and examined it so there was the extra $20 something charge on custom tax bs.

    The total? A whopping $600 something LOL

    I ended up eating cup noodles for a month. rip.

    Buyee is nice. Grab 2 to 3 friends and pitch in for a party pack and split the shipping. Don't be nub like me and buy random sets of individual girls unless you really want it. And if over 2kg get more photos in packs to make your shipping worth. And when in doubt if you want the thing you are bidding or not, just remember my motto "YOLO SWAG".

    Anyways since this was a hella expensive lesson I learnt, me and my friend decided to make a open box video so to entertain ourselves for the money we spent. We tried to be as entertaining as possible, enjoy! :)

    I'm the camera guy, my friend is the one with the toy scissor

    So the objective for my friend was to find his Okada Nana magazine and the only 1 set of Nishino Nanase photocards he bought among all the STU photocards I got and the random AKB goods my other friend bought lol

    I personally prefer to buy from FromJapan compared to Buyee...sometimes it's cheaper, but not always. Proxy sites will always be hella expensive I guess.

    With Buyee I've noticed that new net shop photos/pre-orders etc. are treated as separate orders with separate fees but older photos could be ordered as a batch.

    (Of course I too have 3 separate pre-orders in atm and get to pay separate shipping for all of those.)

    A few things ....

    books.jpg

    Shimada Haruka (ex-AKB48) 1st Photobook - Sonna Ikikata
    Nagao Mariya (ex-AKB48) Photobook - Mabui! Mariya
    Wakatsuki Yumi (Nogizaka46) 1st Photobook - Palette
    Couple of magazines
    Kamiya Erina (Kamen Joshi) 1st Photobook - Kamichichi

    All the photobooks are very nice ... although it would be nice if CDJapan had put some of them up a bit earlier which mean I ended up sourcing some of them from elsewhere.

    AKB48 Request Hour Best Setlist 2016 - AKB48 only version - BD Boxset
    Dai 6 Kai AKB48 Kohaku Taiko Utagassen - BD
    SKE48 Ebi Show! - BD Boxset

    Well if no-one wants to sell me the 6th Red vs. White concert then I'll use other means to get it ... all three of the above came from Yahoo! Auctions at significant discounts over the list price (and are all in perfect condition).

    Just came home to find my HKT48 Summer Hall Tour 2016 Blu-Ray from YesAsia.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I was slightly worried it wasn't going to arrive as I ordered it over a month ago and another order I made with YesAsia was dispatched two weeks later but arrived before it.

    I paid $59.99 including shipping for the Blu-Ray during their winter stock clearance and now it's back to $155.25 :eek:

    I have two NMB48 albums that were heavily reduced in other sales on the way too and have preordered AKB48's new album as well :) Also have some various second-hand AKB DVDs coming. Spending moratorium now, maybe? [hehe]

    Edit: sorry the photos were huge before!

    I cheaped out on shipping, so these finally got here.

    Rie's PB + three singles with prominent Rie presence. The only one that didn't give me a Rie photo was the one that had the highest chance of a Rie photo, Tenshi wa Doko ni Iru, so I'd say I was fairly lucky! And Chimamire Sukeban Chainsaw, featuring ex-SKE Sato Seira. Because I've been meaning to watch it and also CD Japan points.

    A few things, old and new, ....

    stuff.jpg

    AKB48 - Bokutachi wa, Anohi no Yoake wo Shitteiru - Type-A
    STU48 1st - Kurayami - Type-A (*)
    SKE48 Sarina Soda First Photo Book: Urabanashi

    Nemousu TV 4th Special 2010 DVD
    AKB48 - "Revival Concert to You Who Missed 2 - All AKB48 Group Performance" Special DVD Box (**)

    (*) I understand why STU48 released 7 different versions of their debut single but frankly I couldn't justify buying that number which made it easy to only pick up one version. If they had just released three versions, like NGT48, then I would have probably picked up all three.
    (**) Wanted this for ages but the price was against it and the size as well precluded picking it up when I was in Japan last (as well as people wanting a lot for it still when I saw it even secondhand). The group shop still lists this at almost 35000yen, I got this off Yahoo Auctions (sold by Book Off) via From Japan for ~4500yen and it's in very good condition. Shipping etc did cost more than the actual item but still ended up less than a third of list price in total cost.

    First, the arrivals.

    IMG_0478.jpeg

    IMG_0480.JPG

    And now the ordering and shipping.

    I ordered Thumbnail (the 8th album) along with both versions of Wasamin's new single, Sado no Ondeko, released today. I was going to wait for their arrival before posting, but I got an email from Yesasia last night saying shipping was delayed because of a problem with its suppliers ("the expected ship out date has been changed to March 8, 2018 due to reasons received from our suppliers").

    I've been reading posts from this thread but i'm not really sure about how the "official shops" work.
    When we are talking about singles, dvds, albums... It´s kinda easier since I can find them in amazon, cdjapan, yesasia...
    But It's completely different with apparel, goods ... I found 3 differents webpages where apparently u can get this kind of merchandising (AKB48 CAFE&SHOPS / akb48.buyee / shopping.akb48-group.com).
    What's the difference between them? Do they ship only to japan or we can use that sites too?

    AKB48 Cafe&Shops: it's a physical store only as far as I know, so you have to be in Japan.
    Shopping.akb48-group.com: I believe it only ships to Japan, although I'm not 100% sure.
    Buyee site: international AKB48 shop, intended specifically for shipping internationally.

    Oh ok, so it deppends basically on the shipping i guess.
    Btw I knew the cafeshop but i was talking about this, not sure about how it works i'll check it after
    http://akb48cafeshops.com/online/english/

    EDIT: I think it's more or less like this:

    They give you a special japanese shipping address.
    You'll have to use the address when u are in the shop placing ur order and after paying a handling fee They will send ur package to ur overseas address.
    This is provided by tenso... Didnt know them tbh

    The day after Yesasia told me my order - the regular and limited editions of Sado no Ondeko and Thumbnail (Type B) - wouldn't be shipped until March 8, they shipped it, and it got here on March 6. .
