Group Order - Animate (CLOSED)

Animate | Uta no Prince-sama | Hakuouki | StarrySky | Natsume Yuujinchou

There are also other series listed, so feel free to browse and let me know if you need any help! For Animate items, items in pink are "in stock", green are "back-order" and blue are "pre-order". I only take orders for items that are "in stock" or "back-order" - but take note that I can't guarantee that I'll definitely be able to get items on "back-order" for you.

To contact me, you could either leave a comment here or send me a PM. My feedback page can be found over here.

Payment
There will be two rounds of payment for this group order. I only accept PayPal. For both payments, buyers are responsible for the PayPal fees and this will be added to the respective total. Please give me your PayPal address so that I can send you the invoice for either payments. Local buyers may request to do bank transfers as an alternative method.

- Payment 1 (Required before the deadline - Friday, Jun 22 at 11.59AM GMT+8) - Payment in JPY
1. Price of the item
2. Commission
    - JPY150 for every item under JPY1000
    - JPY325 for every item equal or above JPY1000
    - JPY625 for every item equal or above JPY2500
    - JPY950 for every item equal or above JPY3500
Commission cannot be discounted as this would be used to cover domestic shipping and deputy fees. An extra JPY500 will be charged in addition to the commission for a rush-order.
3. PayPal fee (3.9% + JPY50)

- Payment 2 (Will be requested after receiving and packing the items) - Payment in USD
1. Shipping cost from Japan to me
I will get EMS shipping if there are sufficient orders; otherwise I will get SAL (Registered) which usually take around a week to reach me. The shipping cost will be divided by the number of items and then allocated to the number of items per buyer. Buyers of lighter items will pay lesser while buyers of heavier items will pay slightly more.
2. Shipping cost from me to you
All items are shipped from Singapore via regular air mail; however if you require tracking, I can register the parcel which would add an additional USD$2.20 to your shipping costs. I'll pack the items appropriately so that they are well-protected, but if you prefer a different packing method, please let me know beforehand. I will ship the items within 3 days after receiving Payment 2. Depending on your location, I will give you the estimated arrival time that is provided by the post office. After the parcel is sent out, I will not be responsible for any damaged, stolen or lost items during delivery. Also, no returns/refunds will be accepted after the transaction is completed. Local buyers may request for meet-up.
3. PayPal fee (3.9% + USD$0.50)

Important
1. Please be aware that I can only give shipping estimates as I do not know how heavy some of the items are. However, sending large/heavy books to USA would most likely incur heavy shipping costs.
2. When you place your order, please indicate your location so that I can calculate Payment 2 quickly after receiving the items.
3. Try to minimize the changes to your order; as long as Payment 1 has not been made, you may still make changes freely.
4. Orders will only be confirmed when Payment 1 is received; once it is confirmed, there will be no cancellations.
5. Refunds (for both the item price and the commission) will be given only if the item goes out of stock. PayPal fee is not refundable.
6. Please be patient as the items would need some time to reach the deputy before being shipped out to me.
7. Do leave an alternative form of contact (such as email) if you are not able to check LiveJournal often.
8. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Updates
Jun 22 - Not taking anymore orders. I have already sent the payment to the proxy and now the order is currently in transit!
Jun 26 - Majority of the items have reached the proxy - now we're just waiting for a few back-orders to arrive~
Jul 3 - Just received word from the proxy that one more item has reached them... There's still two more items that we're waiting for!
Jul 6 - I have just paid for the shipping from Japan to me, so the items will probably be shipped out next week! :)
Jul 15 - Items have already reached my place in Singapore, however I am currently out of town for urgent matters. I'll be sending out Payment 2 invoices on Jul 22 when I'm back~ Thanks for understanding.
Jul 22 - Just got back, so I'm calculating the figures for Payment 2 now. I'll be PMing you guys with the details shortly~
Jul 26 - All items paid and shipped out - thank you for participating in the group order! :)

Thank you! :)

Ah, didn't realize that the comments got screened - my bad! Anyway, gonna move my reply here (much neater that way~)

The items that you're interested in are these right?

1: http://www.animate-onlineshop.jp/pn/%E3%80%90%E3%82%B0%E3%83%83%E3%82%BA-%E3%83%91%E3%82%B9%E3%82%B1%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B9%E3%80%91%E5%A4%8F%E7%9B%AE%E5%8F%8B%E4%BA%BA%E5%B8%B3+%E3%83%91%E3%82%B9%E3%82%B1%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B9+%E3%81%AB%E3%82%83%E3%82%93%E3%81%93%E5%85%88%E7%94%9F/pd/1156616/

All three items are on pre-order now, and they'll be released in August. I'm not sure right now if I'll be ordering anything from Animate at that time, so I can't promise you right now that I can help you get it... Generally, pre-orders at Animate is expensive as you can't combine it with any other items in your order. So I tend to wait until it releases before ordering it yep. ><;;

However, if you want, I could still pre-order them - however, there's the additional 500 Yen per item to cover domestic shipping and proxy fees... Well, let me know if you're still interested. :)

Excuse me, I just wanted to ask! Could you also buy items from other fandoms?
ilovemiki
Jun. 10th, 2012 10:42 pm (UTC)
Yep - I'm cool with ordering items from other fandoms/series~ Just provide me with the item name (in Japanese), item url, quantity and the price so that I can check carefully and make sure I make the correct order for you! :)

Jun. 10th, 2012 11:14 pm (UTC)
Alright, thank you!! I'll come up with my order later!
Also, looking at the comment below, you'd do R-18 doujins, too? (Even though you said not to order in your main post.)
ilovemiki
Jun. 10th, 2012 11:20 pm (UTC)
Frankly, not too willing to do 18+ doujins because I know that there will be issues with most countries since I'll be mailing via airmail. That's why initially I stated on my main post that I was not gonna do it (in general)...

Well anyway, I've just returned from my weekend trip, so later (after I grab a few hours of sleep!) I'll do a quick check on which countries are okay or not with them - if you're interested in these too, just let me know your location, thanks. :)

Okay, I've checked with the post office and they say that customs do check random parcels to see if the items meet their censorship ratings. Basically, as long as it's not too explicit, it shouldn't be a huge issue. Probably no loli though, sorry. ><;;

Also, I'll need to revise the commission charge because I'll be using a different proxy for Toranoana - just found out today that the proxy service which I was planning to use couldn't order from them, sorry about it!

Both looks fine! By the way, I've made a separate page for the Toranoana order since I'll be ordering via a different proxy. The new page for the group order is over here: http://ilovemiki.livejournal.com/5942.html

If you're okay with the commission, could you reply on the new page or PM me with the links of the items you want as well as your PayPal address? Thanks! :)

Jun. 10th, 2012 10:58 pm (UTC)
Could I check with you on your location? The first and third links are 18+ doujins, so I'll need to check up on whether there are any restrictions when I send them to you. :)

The first one probably no... For the third one, the sample scans doesn't look too bad, so hopefully that's the most extreme it gets.

Also, I'll need to revise the commission charge because I'll be using a different proxy for Toranoana - just found out today that the proxy service which I was planning to use couldn't order from them, sorry about it!

I'll give you the updated total for Payment 1 tomorrow once I've finalized the charges with the proxy, thanks! :)

Payment received! Do keep track of this post as I'll be posting updates for the group order, including when I place the order and when the items reach me etc.

Hi, before I consider..I'm sure since I'm in Singapore would it be possible to pick up the items via meet-up?

to save time and money obviously

Jun. 15th, 2012 05:58 pm (UTC)
Yup, as stated, I can do meet-ups for people in SG. :)

Hi
I would like to order too but I don't understand JPnese, could you explain to me these items? :

http://www.animate-onlineshop.jp/pn/【グッズ-マスコット】ゲームキャラクターズコレクション+ミニ%E3%80%80「ペルソナ4」Re%3AMIX%2B/pd/1092229/

(What is that number "12"? Is that the price 472 for each? How much for all of them? Is it random or I can pick the ones I like?)

Hello!

This set of mascots is known as the "Game Characters Collection Mini Persona4 Re:MIX+" (http://www.animate-onlineshop.jp/pn/%E3%80%90%E3%82%B0%E3%83%83%E3%82%BA-%E3%83%9E%E3%82%B9%E3%82%B3%E3%83%83%E3%83%88%E3%80%91%E3%82%B2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%A0%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A3%E3%83%A9%E3%82%AF%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BA%E3%82%B3%E3%83%AC%E3%82%AF%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A7%E3%83%B3+%E3%83%9F%E3%83%8B%E3%80%80%E3%80%8C%E3%83%9A%E3%83%AB%E3%82%BD%E3%83%8A4%E3%80%8DRe%3AMIX%2B/pd/1092229/), and they are basically around 3-4cm. They come with the small hook on top, so most likely used with keychains yep.

It's fixed as "12" because if you want to purchase it, you have to buy a full box of 12 packets. Each box comes with the 9 designs + 1 secret + 2 extras. So one box would cost 5,664 Yen.

All these apply for the Re:MIX+2nd (http://www.animate-onlineshop.jp/pn/%E3%80%90%E3%82%B0%E3%83%83%E3%82%BA-%E3%83%9E%E3%82%B9%E3%82%B3%E3%83%83%E3%83%88%E3%80%91%E3%82%B2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%A0%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A3%E3%83%A9%E3%82%AF%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BA%E3%82%B3%E3%83%AC%E3%82%AF%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A7%E3%83%B3%E3%83%9F%E3%83%8B+%E3%83%9A%E3%83%AB%E3%82%BD%E3%83%8A4+Re%3AMIX%2B2nd/pd/1146006/) set as well. For the secrets, the first set is Trap!Kuma and the second set is Trap!Kanji - I can help you find the pictures if you're interested! :)

Also, if you're only interested in specific characters, I'm actually doing a group order for the first box and there are still leftover slots. You can take a look at the group order over here: http://myfigurecollection.net/club/618/discussions/&did=4494
