Group Order - Toranoana #2 (CLOSED)

Toranoana | Comiket82 | Uta no Prince-sama | Hakuouki | Amnesia | StarrySky | Natsume Yuujinchou | Ao no Exorcist | Hiiro no Kakera | Durarara!! | Guilty Crown | Persona | Mawaru Penguindrum | Madoka | Tsuritama | Kuroko no Basket | Steins;Gate | Vocaloid

As Comiket82 is coming up, I have decided to open a second Toranoana group order! This order will work a little differently from the previous because of the varying dates of release. There'll be two general time-frames (for the dates of release): 7-10 Aug and 11-14 Aug. For now, I plan to place the order right after the second time-frame - however, if we get sufficient orders for the first time-frame, I will separate into two orders.

I can still take orders for other doujins in-stock, so feel free to browse through Toranoana as well. As usual, 18+ doujins are okay as long as it is not too explicit (especially on the cover) - please ask if you're unsure~

To contact me, you could either leave a comment here or send me a PM. You'll need to give me the item's title, the link to the item's page, your location as well as your PayPal address. 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. Local buyers may request to do bank transfers as an alternative method (though it is not encouraged due to fluctuating exchange rates).

- Payment 1 (Required before the deadline - Wednesday, Aug 15 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 heavy books/items 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!

Aug 7 - Will take C82 orders only until Aug 9 (before I place the pre-order). In-stock and leftover C82 orders can still be ordered on Aug 15~
Aug 9 - I have already placed the pre-order for the C82 items! Unfortunately, some of the items have gone temporarily out of stock - but no worries, I have already requested for them to re-stock those items. The event will take place this weekend, so Toranoana will update their stock status next week. I might extend the deadline of the group order depending on their restock schedule yep! :)
Aug 15 - Orders placed and confirmed. Refunds to the respective individuals have also been sent (unless it's held as balance to cover Payment 2). I'll update again once the items have been shipped out to me~
Aug 22 - Pre-orders have reached the deputy~ Now awaiting for the remaining items to arrive yup!
Aug 31 - A few more arrived, but now we're waiting for the remaining books to arrive at the deputy... There was some low stock issues, that's why it's taking awhile for Toranoana to ship them. Hope you guys can understand that - I'll update again once everything is with the deputy and ready to be shipped to me! :)
Sep 3 - All the items have reached the deputy! Now awaiting the shipping invoice from them~
Sep 5 - Turned out that one of the CDs hasn't arrived yet - good thing they checked the contents before sending it over! Anyway, according to the latest email from them, the CD should arrive at the end of the week, so the shipping invoice will come right after that yup.
Sep 11 - Everything has been paid and sent out to me already! I'll calculate Payment 2 and PM everyone once I've received the parcel! :)
Sep 17 - Parcel has already arrived! Sorting out the items at the moment, so I'll be sending out the PMs shortly after that~
Sep 24 - I have already packed all the items into their respective packages - in the midst of getting them mailed out. Thanks for waiting patiently! :)
Sep 28 - All parcels have been mailed out - once again, thank you for participating in the group order~

Thank you! :)

How explicit is too explict? :p
Aug. 3rd, 2012 11:27 am (UTC)
Well, it's really hard to define what's "too explicit" - but I'm fine with it as long as it doesn't potentially get me into trouble (ie. no lolis/underage...)~

Usually, I'd take a look at the cover and the sample scans to get a feel of how "explicit" it is - so yep, mostly based on own judgement. :)

How do I order? Can I PM you the links here?

You can either paste the links as a reply to the thread, or drop me a PM. Either way is fine! :)

Hello! Don't worry about asking questions~ Basically, yes - this group order is more aimed towards Comiket82 items which are up for pre-orders. But I'm also open to taking orders for in-stock items. The only items which I most likely won't be able to help order are regular pre-orders yep! :)
Aug. 5th, 2012 01:54 am (UTC)
Ah, sorry for bothering you. But I really wished I could participate in this group order. I live in Malaysia and occasionally visit Singapore so maybe we can meet up there. But I've never done this before so I don't know how to create a Paypal account and the payment method. Can you explain them to me, maybe via PM?

Sorry for asking too much. ;;

Hello, thanks for the interest! I'm not able to PM you because of your privacy options... So I'll be transferring my reply over here~


To set up a PayPal account, you would first need a debit or credit card. If you do have one, you can go ahead to set up the PayPal account and fill up all the details, including your debit/credit card number. After which, I'll send you an invoice and you can pay via PayPal - so it's really easy! :)

As for meet-up, I don't mind meeting up when you visit Singapore. So yeh, as long as it coincides with your visit I guess. It's not expensive to ship to Malaysia either, so that's an alternative to consider as well~

So... Yep, let me know if you have any other questions - thanks! :)

Quick question! I have a credit card linked to my paypal account, but my account is limited in that I can't add money to the account itself. Will this make me unable to pay for any order I place with you?
Aug. 5th, 2012 07:17 am (UTC)
Hmm... I believe you would still be able to pay for invoices though. As long as there's a credit card linked to the PayPal account, you don't need to have money in the account itself to pay - they will automatically bill your card instead. :)

Hi! I have a question. I am from Singapore and really wish to get order some items. However, I don't have Paypal or a bank account, is there any way we can work around this?
Aug. 5th, 2012 09:53 am (UTC)
Hello! Do you have a debit/credit card? It's easy to set up a PayPal account if you have either~ If you don't have, then do you at least have a POSB account (to transfer money)? :o

Hello! The other book that you wanted (ラグランジュポイント 後編) still hasn't shown up on Toranoana (or K-Books), so I'll just invoice you for the other book (fall down) if you still want to order it! :) Do drop me a PM with your location and PayPal address if you are interested~

Do you happen to know the link for the Kuroko no Basket catalog? I'm not really sure how to look on the website orz I might be interested in ordering from you!

Thanks a bunch!
Aug. 8th, 2012 02:37 pm (UTC)
Hello! I believe this should be the link for the Kuroko no Basket catalog: http://www.toranoana.jp/mailorder/cot/genre/5/891_01.html

C82 doujins are listed on a separate page though, so the link above is mainly the in-stock ones. Hope it helps! :)

Hi!. Sent Pm. Thank you!
Aug. 12th, 2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
Hello! Hopefully you're able to see my reply now. Both doujins that you have linked me to, release on the 17th but my group order's deadline is 15th - so I can't promise you now that I can take your order unless: 1) I extend the deadline because of C82 restock or, 2) you don't mind paying the extra commission of JPY650 (because your doujins would be sent separately due to its release date).

Let me know what you think? Thanks. :)

Hello! If you're wondering about Payment 2 estimates, it should be quite close to your previous order (same for the international shipping~) Anyway yep, no problem - I'll send you the invoice for both items shortly! :)
