You guys might be helpful.

I haven't watched anime or read manga in years and have a bunch of it I want to unload. Craigslist hasn't been helpful, even at pretty low prices (around $2-3 per manga volume)

I've got:
5 years of shonen jump
200 volumes of manga
50 DVDs

Would using Fulfillment by Amazon be a good way to get rid of all this shit, or would fees eat me alive? Should I just haul everything to a used bookstore?

Try ebay, sell them in bulk so you don't get raped by fees. Don't know of any other option.

I often see preorder posts, but I'm curious, how many of you DON'T have preorders?

If you have zero preorders, do you make it a point to avoid preordering? Is there a reason or does it just happen naturally?
>>
>>100579007
You could make a list and see if anybody here wants some of it. Sounds like you aren't trying to make a huge profit anyway.

>>100579007
Fulfillment by Amazon is a bad idea. You can pack and ship on your own for less. That said, Amazon fees are stupidly high.

Don't sell in bulk as suggested by >>100579103
You will be raped by getting far less than you would've reasonably wanted. I say this as an experienced eBay seller.

Do some research to see which of your items are actually worth money, the time and effort it takes to list the things for sale and type up descriptions and take photos and clean the pictures up with Photoshop and to wipe down the merchandise, etc.

>>100579143
Oh boy finally a post I can answer to!

So yes, I don't preorder things because I've learned that the figures and other type of goods I'm interested in never sell out for real. Half the times the stuff gets bargain binned hard, so it's worth it to wait for that 50%-70% discount. I have a dedicated forwarder and proxy as well, so I use Yahoo! Auction Japan and Suruga-ya to catch just about anything else that I miss out earlier on.

I've also accepted in my heart that I will never own everything I want & there will always be newer and shinier things on the horizon, so I sleep pretty easy at night.
>>
>>100579541
So yeah, please try researching to see what you own is actually worth anything. My general rule of thumb when I get a bulk order of plastic toys and Nipponese books is that if the item is worth $3 or less, it's not worth its own listing, and $3-$5 items have lowest priority of listing.
Take condition into account as well and check to see how much the same item has been sold for in the past. Finally, DON'T screw yourself over with the shipping fees. I've seen it happen too often, that the seller overpaid so much on shipping that it cost them money to get rid of something.

Also you can try listing everything on a spreadsheet and hawking them to us buyf/a/gs or MFC and see if anyone bites.

I should have mentioned I already sold off the stuff that was semi valuable. Pretty much all the manga or DVDs can be found online for less than $5/volume shipped. At prices that low a take of $1.50-3 after shipping + packing fees + eBay fees, I'm not sure it's worth my time to photograph this stuff and sell it individually.

I was thinking Amazon FBA might be nice because I could just throw all this stuff in a box, fill some shit out, and be done with it, but it sounds like it'll be too expensive from what you're saying.

I'm not 100% sure how Amazon Fulfillment works since I've never used it (I mostly deal on eBay, some Amazon self-packaging), but if you're willing to do something like that, you might be better off hauling everything to a local store and getting a check cut on the spot for the near-junk instead of waiting for cheap shit to sell.

They're nice if you want characters they don't make any other figures of, though, or want big group displays from something. They're also good for putting in funny poses or unusual places.

It's based on a some fanart that had red eyes too, so it's technically accurate to the work it's based off of. It's just the work was inaccurate, pixiv artists are faggots who sometimes change her eye color for no reason whatsoever, even though red doesn't look nearly as good.

As a Shinobu fan I don't like that fig one bit. The eye color is wrong, and the expression is completely out of character. It doesn't capture any of the things that makes her such a great character, and is based off an artist's rendition of "that cute blonde girl who eats donuts."

It's so far disconnected from Shinobu that I wish it wasn't Shinobu at all, so that I could forget it exists, and that maybe something more appropriate would be made in it's place. I won't fault you for buying it, as it's something I'm still conflicted about to this day. All I can say is that even if I did buy the figure, it would only be out of the irrational feeling of obligation I have toward the character and not because I liked it or felt that it did her any justice.

>>100585282
It's based off Shinobu in Bakemonogatari. She literally did nothing but sit around and feed off Araragi. It hardly takes away from the kind of character she becomes afterwards but you're taking the figure way too seriously.

The two Nise figs she'll be getting are much more in line with her "current" personality.

Some preorders make sense. Some higher caliber figures sometimes sells out weeks before release and they simply get rarer and pricier. Sometimes they do go to the bargain bin, but most figures I really want gets sold out quick. And braving ebay isn't an option. Way too much counterfeits there.
>>
How good is amazon.jp at keeping track of their first press stock? The preorders for some BD's are not really clear on the topic that if I preorder I will actually get the first press bonuses or if they can just magically run out and not tell me.
>>
>>100585590
I can see the point you're making. It's also enforced by the fact that it's based off of BD cover art, making it dangerously close to being official art. On the other hand though, both Nise LNs were already out by the time SHAFT aired Bakemonogatari. (I'm not sure where they would have gotten the donuts thing otherwise.)

Maybe they thought it wouldn't matter because she was a minor role in Bake. They most likely thought giving her a cute expression instead of the usual glare and red eyes would make more money. Either way, it's a really unfortunate result of SHAFT taking liberties with a minor character who Nisio had intended to become extremely significant shortly thereafter.

I'm not really sure what your point is. I already mentioned that yes it's BD art, but that merely puts the blame on SHAFT rather than making it disappear. You also can't claim that the anime is it's own work and the figures are based off of it, because it's an adaptation and people have every right to be upset over a botched adaptation. Adaptation merchandise is no exception.

And really, it's not like Shinobu had red eyes or innocent expressions in the anime either. (If she did then it would be really something to get up in arms about.) SHAFT taking creative liberties with backgrounds and stuff is all well and good, but changing characters (or story) is a huge no-no regardless of the work or the studio.

I can, because that's exactly why the figures were made. The rest of the franchise doesn't really matter when they made the figures for that anime. The same goes for their Nise figures. Similar things happened with Spice and Wolf and OreImo.

If you want to be mad at SHAFT for stylistic choices then cool. Shinobu's eyes are red there presumably because it's supposed to be a sunset hue over everything. I can't be bothered to see if there's a frame like that in the anime anywhere.

That's your opinion, and not one shared by a great number of fans of any adapted work.

Sure SHAFT can do whatever they want, they could turn Shinobu into a muscular black man if they were so inclined, but they certainly wouldn't be blameless in doing so.

>If you want to be mad at SHAFT for stylistic choices then cool.
Yes, when a studio does an adaptation there is an expectation for them to meet a standard of accuracy and quality. Changing character designs for no reason is detrimental to that. If they want to make their own idea then they should do an original anime, not take someone else's work and mold it to their own tastes.

>Shinobu's eyes are red there presumably because it's supposed to be a sunset hue over everything. I can't be bothered to see if there's a frame like that in the anime anywhere.
There is no scene like that. Colors don't even work that way, and the eyes aren't even the only problem with the figure. It was quite obviously poor taste on SHAFT's part.

Shinobu is an extremely popular character in an extremely popular series, it's to be expected. As I mentioned originally, I don't even like the figure but I still have the urge to buy it because it's Shinobu. I can't fault anyone who buys it, but I don't consider it a good figure by any means.

SHAFT doesn't even do a bad job most of the time, they just really dropped the ball with that cover. As far as I know they haven't made the same mistake ever since.

I don't, I work and earn my money so I don't really think they have much in say of what I spend it on.

I still afford rent every month and buy my own food, so I should be able to enjoy a hobby even if they think it's a waste of money.

My mother easily spends £150 per month on shoes alone

However if someone was spending their entire pay check on it and struggling to pay for more important things I could see that being a problem.

"Due to licensing and contract restrictions, this product can be sold and shipped to the US and Canada only"

I can't find it anywhere else for a price that's anywhere near that. Do they actually give a shit about ordering from overseas or will they flat out refuse to let me buy it? I know that when AmiAmi says "For Japan Only" it's bullshit so I'm wondering if it's the same for Rightstuf.

You probably want both Cerb and her, as far as I'm concerned.

And it *won't* be sold at astronomical prices if it's soon enough before / after release.

You'll get her at a normal price (maybe with tiny markup) if you keep checking Japan / MFC / national / export stores. People will cancel their orders, not want her, not have means to pay, or are happy with just cashing in a 10% markup immediately.

Yea. Well, I don't even mind paying my 8% consumption taxes. It pays for stuff that I also see need for.

The postal fees for handling the imports, on the other hand, piss me off. They usually make more than the taxes cost.

> Makes sense, I'll get both then, thanks for the input.
Sure.

My personal guesstimate is that the JPY is still in a ditch but gaining value again, so I just ordered and pre-paid cerb now rather than waiting - but that's just my guess.

And putting some JPY aside on a bank account or PayPal would also work...

>>100599476
They've got stuff with dual audio. Not that it matters because it's ridiculous. Though they've got a company releasing "classic" edition things in the mid $20s, which isn't terrible.

The postal fees was what I was poking at here. Thought they charged them at the same time.

Almost every few threads there's general annoyance at the postal service for charging an absurd amount. Hell they charge more than even the cost of a figma sometimes. You already pay for shipping I don't get why you pay more.

As for the JPY, I'm hoping that it keeps constant (I doubt it though). If it strengthens there goes my wallet.

Well, it's usually backed in law that they can collect that extra money.

The interests of the few postal service providers in their shady postal services provider union and re-selling importers are just very, uh, "well-represented" in politics.

> As for the JPY, I'm hoping that it keeps constant (I doubt it though). If it strengthens there goes my wallet.
You can reserve some JPY in Paypal. With no interest and their conversion rates (thus I prefer doing it on a bank, or pre-ordering with pre-payment on N-Y), but you can.

As long as I preordered I should be good, I would just be pissed if I miss out on the boxes associated with it.

IT would also be questionable if grouping my BD shipments (to save shipping) resulted in them not reserving the first press, by the time they shipped later volumes.

> Invoice or at the door
Understandable. Never had to pay for my deliveries at the door so I don't know how charges that way works exactly.

> Backed In law that they can collect extra money
Sounds like complete crap to me. Like an extra charge just because they can. Paying twice for the same postage really doesn't sound fair at all. "Well represented" Indeed.

> PayPal Balance
I would if I had enough cash to. I normally save up within each month so I'm unable to use that to eliminate currency risk. Not that I'm broke, just money goes other places first then buyfagging.

And AmiAmi doesn't have payment upfront, sadly.

Yup. And the astonishing thing is that they managed to get these charges into most of Europe - even before the EU, individually.

Also, the detail I didn't mention explicitly yet: Corporate customers can do a far more inexpensive transaction on an expenses account. [Notably one which customs and postal services alike often only allow for corporate entities, or at least tie to conditions almost only corporate entities can meet.]

> And AmiAmi doesn't have payment upfront, sadly.
