Group Order - Toranoana #1 (CLOSED)

Toranoana | Uta no Prince-sama | Hakuouki | StarrySky | Natsume Yuujinchou | Vocaloid

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. Also, 18+ doujins are okay as long as they are not too explicit.

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

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
    - JPY300 for every CD/book (below 100 pages)
    - JPY500 for every book (100+ pages)
    - JPY700 for every book (200+ pages)
    - JPY950 for every book (300+ pages)
Commission cannot be discounted as this would be used to cover domestic shipping and deputy fees. An extra JPY650 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)

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!

Jun 22 - Order closed, will be sending out the order to the proxy now! Full order placed and paid! I'll update again when the items have reached the proxy~
Jul 3 - Just received word from the proxy that it might take bit longer to reach them as some items are on low stock/back-order status yep!
Jul 6 - All the items have finally arrived~ Waiting for the shipping invoice from them now! :)
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. (Also, I'll probably be hosting a 2nd Toranoana group order in August for the upcoming Comiket!)
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~
Aug 5 - All items paid and shipped out - thank you for participating in the group order! :)

Thank you! :)

Oh, sorry if it was confusing! I'll try to explain how it goes... The number of pages refer to those in the doujin itself!

Anyhow, for the first doujin/link, I don't think I'd risk ordering that... SG customs is quite strict so it might cause problems when it's been shipped to me and later on, to you.

So for your order, the commission looks like this:

桜を掴む 20p - 525 Yen (+300 Yen)
沖田が好きっっ! 62p - 1,200 Yen (+300 Yen)

If that's okay for you, I'll send you the invoice for Payment 1! :)

Okay noted, I've just sent the invoice for Payment 1! :)
Jun. 13th, 2012 04:56 pm (UTC)
Ok but I can't make a payment til monday.
Jun. 13th, 2012 05:07 pm (UTC)
No problem since the deadline for Payment 1 is Jun 22! I'll send you the invoice shortly~

Re: Payment 2 - Toranoana Group Order
Ah--sorry about that!
So it should be $9 + shipping + Paypal? Should I pay the $9 to you right now then?
Jul. 22nd, 2012 08:59 pm (UTC)
Re: Payment 2 - Toranoana Group Order
No problem~ Thanks for the reply - so, do you need the cardboard backing/bubble-wrap? After I've wrapped them up, I'll head over to the post office in the morning to get it weighed~

Nah, after I have all the details for Payment 2, I'll send you the invoice - so no worries about it now!

Jun. 13th, 2012 03:33 am (UTC)

I do have a PayPal account; but, can you explain how you're going to send the payment to my paypal account? ^_^"
Jun. 13th, 2012 01:29 pm (UTC)
Basically I'll create an invoice and send it to your email (that is linked to your PayPal). There will be a direct link to pay via PayPal when you open that email! :)

I hope my explanation helps~
Jun. 14th, 2012 09:51 am (UTC)
Ah, so do you need the email now? :3
Jun. 14th, 2012 01:45 pm (UTC)
Yup~ Once I get your email, I'll send the invoice for Payment 1. Then, you'll have until Jun 22 (the deadline stated for the group order) to pay for it! :)

Re: Payment 2 - Toranoana Group Order
Ah, that was quicker than I thought >_<

I don't think I need additional protection, "as is" is already fine (without tracking too). So, should I send my address? I live in Indonesia, so... I'm sorry, but can you please total it? An estimation? :3
Jul. 23rd, 2012 10:08 am (UTC)
Re: Payment 2 - Toranoana Group Order
Okay, understood. Please PM me your name and address, as how you would like the parcel to be labelled. :)

I'll send you the invoice for Payment 2 tomorrow after I've weighed the parcel at the post office!
Jul. 24th, 2012 04:11 pm (UTC)
Re: Payment 2 - Toranoana Group Order
Received your PM~ I'll send you the invoice shortly! :)
Jul. 25th, 2012 11:16 am (UTC)
Re: Payment 2 - Toranoana Group Order
I've sent the payment already. How long will it take for me to receive it? :3
Jul. 25th, 2012 11:19 am (UTC)
Re: Payment 2 - Toranoana Group Order
Yup, received it - thanks for the prompt payment! :)
I'll drop by the post office tomorrow to mail it, and it would take around 5-8 working days to reach you~

I'm interested in this: http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/03/08/040030030842.html but I'm not sure if I'll get it or not. I've never participated in one of these before! How much does the doujinshi itself cost?
Jun. 13th, 2012 05:06 pm (UTC)
Hello! Just a brief summary of how the group order works:
1. You'll make Payment 1 before the deadline (in your case, 735+300 Yen)
2. I'll make the order and have it shipped to me
3. The international shipping from Japan to me will be divided by the number of items in the shipment
4. Then I'll invoice you for Payment 2 - your portion of the international shipping from Japan to me + the international shipping from me to you

Hopefully this explanation helps! :)

Hello! Thanks for the explanation - it definitely helps~ Hmm, so let's see:

http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/00/94/040030009445.html - It's currently listed as low stock... I can still place the order for it when I close the group order, but if it's unavailable by then, I'll just refund the money you've previously paid at Payment 1. Commission would be JPY300.

http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/22/0005/00/13/220005001323.html - I reckon the size is similar to a Nendo Petit, so the commission would be JPY300 as well.

http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/22/0005/00/22/220005002253.html - Also on low stock at the moment. Based on its price, the commission would be JPY700.

Both doujins' availability looks fine, and the commission would be JPY300 each.

Let me know if everything's okay, then I'll send you the invoice for the items! :)
Jun. 14th, 2012 05:53 pm (UTC)
Sure, everything seems fine to me! Go ahead with the invoice.

Thank you very much! :)
Jun. 15th, 2012 02:10 am (UTC)
Okay, noted. Invoice sent~
No problem and thanks for joining too! :)
Jun. 15th, 2012 01:02 pm (UTC)
Hi -

I know you said not to switch orders around once you pay for them, but may I exchange one item for another? If so, I'd like to replace




The price is exactly the same for either, so I don't think we'd have to negotiate a new payment.

Please let me know if this is okay! I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Jun. 15th, 2012 01:14 pm (UTC)
Yup okay - I'm keeping another list with everyone's orders so I've edited the item's name & link accordingly. No worries about it, I won't redo the invoice - just remember that you've swapped the items yep! :)
Jun. 16th, 2012 10:24 am (UTC)
Ugh, I hate to do this, but one last tiny change, since the first item I listed is almost out of stock... :(

I'd like to exchange




Again, they're the same exact price. Sorry again, this will be the last change, I promise!
Jun. 16th, 2012 01:11 pm (UTC)
Okay, noted! Just a quick check on the list of items that you're ordering:

1. 東方ソフビ【ミニ】16 みょーん!妖夢

2. 東方ソフビ【ミニ】05 まじまじパチュリー

3. 東とらのあな 東方ソフビシリーズ18 おあずけーね

4. いのちをだいじに 24p

5. 永遠のような錯覚 44p

Please reply to confirm the list - just so that I don't end up ordering wrongly for you! :)

Hi! I was lurking in the DRRR comm and saw your post. :)
I'm very interested in these:
http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0020/02/66/040020026638.html - It's R-18 and low stock right now, so I was wondering if it'd okay...?
http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/03/50/040030035055.html - This is the one I wanted the most but I read on the artit's page it's only available through mail order right now, though I'm not really sure what that means. @_@
Jun. 18th, 2012 07:11 pm (UTC)
Hello - thanks for the interest!

For the first doujin, sorry but I don't think I'll risk ordering that - the customs in SG is relatively strict and conservative so yep. ><;;

For the third doujin, I believe it's either out of stock or out of print, because apparently you could put in a request for it to be reprinted/resold - it would most likely take awhile though (probably works like a back-order), so I don't think I'll be able to include it in the group order... Sorry again.

The second doujin is fine though; would you like to place an order for it? If you're still interested, please leave your location and PayPal address so that I can send you the invoice. Thanks! :)
(Screened comment)
Jun. 18th, 2012 08:21 pm (UTC)
Yep, the other doujin that you've linked is fine! I have sent you the invoice for both items~

No worries, all good as long as the payment comes in before the group order closes (on Jun 22)~ Thanks! :)
Jun. 21st, 2012 06:23 pm (UTC)
Hi, I am interested in participating. I'm just wondering at all, would you be able to order something from K-Books too? There's one book I would like on there and some from Toranoana and I'm curious if you could at all order one thing from K-Books. If not, that's totally okay.

Jun. 21st, 2012 06:28 pm (UTC)
Sorry, not taking any orders for K-Books. ><;;

For Payment 1, it'll be:

1: http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/03/96/040030039676.html
JPY746 + JPY300

2: http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/03/94/040030039487.html
JPY578 + JPY300

3: http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/article/04/0030/04/80/040030048045.html
JPY420 + JPY300

As for Payment 2, international shipping from Japan to me will be split fairly among all the items in the group order. Shipping from me to you would be charged based on the weight, and would be shipped via airmail (international).

If this sounds fine to you, please leave your PayPal address so that I can send you the invoice for Payment 1. The deadline for Payment 1 is today - so do let me know quickly if you're interested yep! :)

No worries, there's still around 8 more hours to the deadline! I'll send the invoice to you shortly~
Jun. 21st, 2012 07:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I'll look out for it and send payment ASAP!
Jun. 21st, 2012 08:03 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the prompt payment~ I'll let you know once the items reach me - meanwhile, you can also keep updated through this group order page! :)
