Bought Tsunku's autobiography. It taunted me in the bookstores for a while now.

I'm curious has anyone else actually made the physical purchase of the book here? I had a hard time deciding myself if I wanted to get it since I'm not sure I'd be able to get myself to read it even with the bit of Japanese I can understand, but I just felt like I owed it to all the happiness he's given me to get it.

In December sometime I'm going to try and attempt to list everything I've bought this year, CD-wise at least I've spent so much money @_@ It's probably a good thing for my wallet that Concert goods have gone down in desirability to me (I want another parka to be available so badly ;_; my Chance tour one is falling apart, but nooo~) because the combination of how many CDs I buy now and that might make me have to sit down and have an H!P intervention with myself.

I remember the days (2010-2013) when H!P was cheaping out on their CD packaging.
Singles were the worst, but albums were little better.

I just got Limited B of ANGERME's new album delivered and the improvement is clear.
They did the same as for Juice=Juice's last: beautiful cover, high quality digipak, a full bonus concert, both a song and photo booklet + a bonus clearfile.

We give UF crap for a lot things (mostly deserved), but in this area they've really gotten it together.

As for the new songs (across all editions): there's some really enjoyable tracks here. Namida wa Chou ni Kawaru in particular stands out for me.

Yeah, I remember not just the leaflets and the CD's being completely bland and shit, but i'm looking at my cd's from that period and like half of them are thinner than my finger and made of cheap, flimsy plastic, and then i look at the newer ones which are, much better.

The one thing they haven't fixed, though, is the fact that the little strip that's supposed to stick in the back so you can see which album it is.... doesn't work. xD

^ Obi strips are primarily intended to provide additional information for in-store use. They're not supposed to "stick". A lot of people just throw them away after purchase, though that will decrease the CD's value in the eyes of the serious collector.

More info here (note the H!P example!): https://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Obi_Strip

My collection is very messy right now, but I've been thinking of taking pictures after moving and sorting it out. No one wants to see 300 CDs, tubed posters and merch shoved into one crowded shelf. :lol: I also have some autographs which are currently hidden between photobooks and deserve to be displayed properly.

Something amazing just happened.

My friend gave me what she thought of as a "quick, little Christmas present" that she found randomly at her local toy store (which is one of those toy shops that have been around for a long time and have a bunch of random things).

Image

She was kinda shocked by my reaction which was: "OH MY GOD HOW DID YOU FIND THIS!? This is so old! It's like finding some kind of treasure, wow!"

lol

Image

And I got Takahashi Ai, my favourite from this line-up. It's just so weird. This is leftover from the time where MM would get stuff like this made of them. That is an incredible amount of popularity you know @_@. Nowadays we freak out over the littlest things we can get, in the past toy stores had random stuff like this and people didn't give a second thought.

She said there was one more at that shop, so she might go and get it for me XD.

^ That reminds me of a little toy store in Asakusa, Tokyo, that I visited in 2010. I found this thing, which had been sitting on their shelf for eight years:

CD Japan will be having their New Year's sale from Jan 1 to Jan 3. It includes only one item from H!P…

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/EPCE-7151

Lots of AKB48 and NMB48, however, which can be either a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you feel about them.

I bought the vast majority of the ***48 items second-hand for ¥108 apiece — or less. The only things that cost more than ¥500 were the two AKB48 albums, purchased new at full price when I was not in Japan.

Cheap second-hand ***48 singles are so plentiful in Japan that I had to set strict limits to my shopping. I stuck to my decision to pay no more than ¥216 for AKB48 singles with DVDs, ¥108 for AKB48 singles without DVDs, and not to buy any singles from the other ***48 groups at all. Even with those restrictions, you can see how much I bought. I even got a sealed theater edition of “Green Flash” for ¥100 only nine days after its release.

I picked up another batch of stuff from Yahoo! Auctions via From Japan at the post office today. Here are the H!P and H!P-adjacent items:

Image

Clockwise from upper left:
The Peanuts - Jounetsu no Hana (original 7-inch vinyl single from 1959; the song was covered by W)
Buono! - CLIPS vol. 2 (DVD)
THE Possible - ② Shiawase no Akashi (CD)
Ishii Rika (remember her?) – Aoi Kuma (autographed CD)

Among the non-H!P items I got were the self-titled solo CD by Takayo (from ZONE) and Shonen Knife's hard-to-find Knife Collectors 1998 fan club CD, which features three songs from their very first live show, at Mantohihi in Osaka, 17 April 1982.

I ordered CDs from Cdjapan 26 February, arrived in spain 1 March, now more than 9 days and no updates, i talked with Cdjapan
they say this

generally speaking, it is your government's policy to enforce the very time consuming customs inspection procedure strictly, even though an enormous amount of packages enter Spain.
So, delays and congestion at customs office is very common.
From our side, we have no means control or accurately predict how long it will take, but we hope your customs officials release your package soon.
After that, your post office should be able to deliver your package soon.

What should i do to get my Cds, is my first purchase from Cdjapan... and now i regret buying from them already i trusted that site.

There's nothing you can do except wait for the customs inspection to finish. It is standard operating procedure, especially since the increase in terrorism has made governments more suspicious of international shipping, travel, and financial transactions. Nine days is a bit longer than usual, but not exceedingly so. Whatever you do, don't blame CD Japan for this; it's the same problem for any seller, and they already answer this question in their FAQ…

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/guide/help/faq/faq_shipped_orders

If you want to blame someone, blame you own government's bureaucracy. Or maybe blame yourself for not fully understanding the issues with international shipping before you ordered.

Now, having said that, this really belongs in another thread…

It doesn't sound like CDJapan did anything wrong.
Your package is in customs, being inspected to be sure you're not importing anything illegal or undeclared. This is absolutely normal for international packages. Doing a bit of research online, it appears that Spain's customs for packages is -especially- slow, compared to many other countries.
Have you contacted Correos, the Spanish postal service, for a status update? In general it just looks like you're going to have to wait until Spanish customs is through with the package. How many CDs did you buy? In the future, choosing the fastest shipping method (EMS) should expedite things as much as possible, and several smaller shipments might get through more easily than one big one, but unfortunately there's no getting around customs altogether.

I usually have CD Japan orders shipped by Registered SAL, and even though U.S. Customs is relatively fast, it still normally takes them 4-6 days between arrival in the U.S. and delivery (or attempted delivery), with no tracking update in the meantime. So if the Spanish customs agency is typically slow, as boinsie reports, I'd say you have no reason to worry about anything just yet.

I had an issue a few years ago where I ordered something and it took like 2 months to get here, one reason being a lot of snow, which caused backups in customs and shipping sorting and all sorts of mail issues. So it could be a similar situation with you (except not snow.) I waited I would say 2 extra weeks.

By the way if you read the thing, it says "could take up to ____ weeks" because things like that happen. :)
CDJapan is very reliable, I've gotten nearly all my goods from them.
