Ask the guy in charge of selling 12 tons of yaoi anything.
Pic very fucking related
you got any by the artist Mochi
What's in the boxes?
How much of it is traps?
Do you go to conventions in the States?
Why is everything green?
You selling this online?
They nuked all the fujoshits
Why and how did you weight it all? Wouldn't knowing how many copies you have be more informative?
Yaoi is sold in tonnage?
Why are we making so many questions?
Because that's what he'll make off of fujos and gayfags.
I'd guess he has a lot of time on his hands.
Yaoi and some doujin by Project-H
Yes I do. We're based in San Antonio, Texas
My phone sucks donkey dick for a living.
I'm taking orders from businesses in bulk rate but wanted to share with anons so if you're interested let me know.
It was from the weight on the 18-wheelers when it was hauled from Cali. I have the inventory list with the final number.
The fans are measured in tonnage, so it makes sense.
Why do we have nothing better (we choose) to do?
I need more pics and a time stamp.
>20 lbs of bara ass
this thread has potential
Not your blog.
That I unfortunately have at the moment as I just decided to post about it. If you want more proof all I have atm is the ordering list and the name of the company I'm selling for. If you guys really want some and still want proof I can take pics tomorrow.
Is my memory serving me correctly, I remember reading some distribution company was looking for people to sell their yaoi manga, is this it?
Reminds of the guy who bought all those Kuroku ass mouse-pads.
>hauled from Cali
I'm disappointed to export that shit but at least it's out of our hands now.
OP, are you going to sabotage the order?
We bought from DMP, Digital Manga Publishing. I know Diamond blah blah comics is also selling some, but we control around 80% of the market outside of Japan.
Lol I wish I was smart enough to do that, but no. I am trying to help out my local anime store and distribute yaoi for fans. Plus I get commission haha.
Nice one anon.
It took me a while to get the joke
Is this purely for direct sale, or will some/all be resold to other vendors?
>San Antonio, Texas
Who are you working for?
Are you the guy I hear blaring anime music in my neighborhood occasionally?
why did you buy all those yaoi material, if you can download all those shit in your pc?
How much yaoi must one order to get bulk rate?
What business order yaoi at bulk rate?
Do you fap to them?
A-anon, do you have a concussion? Should I call for someone?
Your friendly neighbourhood anime store.
Do anime stores really exist, though?
I just need to sell it all. Be it to other vendors or to individuals. Since it's posted here I'm giving big discounts. Gotta spread the love, ya know?
Ooples. Not yet I'm not.
I asked the same question. I'm simply in charge of selling it.
20+ of the same book is bulk rate. I'm selling at lower prices than average anyway though.
That's a secret!
How do you determine what to buy and how many copies? Do you conduct rotten girl surveys?
can you take a pic of one box
Do you man booths? If so, are you big guy with a beard 1 or 2?
Are you those faggots that go to conventions and scream "YAOI! GET YOUR YAOI HERE!" so loud that I can hear you on the other side of the convention center?
They do, but their numbers are rather low. The industry is growing lately though.
I'm not in charge of the ordering so I don't know. I'm just the salesman. I have a list of the most popular ones though and I control a few series completely as the yaoi market is fucked.
I can tomorrow, sorry. I started the thread on a whim. If people are seriously interested I will take the trip there tomorrow and get pics with timestamps
I helped sell at the Ooples booth at Ikkicon 2 cons ago and was the staff member in charge of the vendor room at Anime-Odyssey. I used to have blonde hair but just cut it and have dark brown hair now. I'm a skinny Mexican dude.
You make them sound like food vendors at sports games. Which is hilarious.
>I used to have blonde hair but just cut it and have dark brown hair now. I'm a skinny Mexican dude
Confirmed for fapping to yaoi.
It's nothing serious. I got a partial turbinectomy and a septoplasty surgery and I'm still somewhat dizzy and slow.
Thanks for worrying anon, it makes me happy.
No, but I bought some Ishikei doujin from that booth at San Japan a couple of years ago. Shit was cash.
It's funny because there IS a vendor like that here. He is very enthusiastic about it too lol.
how the fuck did you get suckered into taking possession of that much smut?
Before blonde it was blue and before that, rainbow. So yeah, you got me there. Unfortunately I don't have many samples to fap to. I need to pick some up lol.
Anything by Mentaiko?
What will you call this in your future resume?
a-a-are you a grill?
Be careful, anon. I wouldn't want you to hurt your cute little loli body.
I don't think so, anon.
>I just need to sell it all
Might consider doing bin sales at conventions; "Any X books for $Y". Increase X to have less desirable units moved with more desirable ones, keeping Y high enough to profit. When interest in remaining stock wanes, sell remaining units individually, or in blind bulk.
Excuse my autism, pls explain.
I didn't buy any of it lol. I'm just selling it for the owner to help out and make some pocket money for myself. Tbh, I think the amount he got was way too fucking much, That pic is about a fourth of the actual count of boxes.
Book and graphic novel sales I guess.
Yes actually. I am in the pic
I have a time limit unfortunately but I will be selling at the Asian Festival here on Feb. 2.
Let me check
we're all little girls here.
STEP RIGHT UP, STEP RIGHT UP
PIPING HOT YAOI
San Antonio you say, can I buy some?
Sure lol. Would you like the inventory list? We can talk about pricing after you find what you'd like. For those of you out of San Antonio or USA, I can ship to you if needed.
Hehe, I get to have two wieners.
Too hot! If I touch you I'll burn!
How much are each individually? Do most of the people you sell to read Japanese?
Girls can love girls.
Where do you ship from and how much?
How many dicks are in twelve tons of yaoi?
What's your next con?
How much for shipping to NZ?
Pricing is based off the company that published it. June tends to be around $12.95. Not that I know of. They are all translated into English. I'm not selling at full price. If you're interested in reselling them I'll give you lower rates.
Where do you work?
Can you get me a job?
Do you have any FKMT doujins?
Its hard to think that there are people in America who will buy these. Then again, I'm surprised that you haven't had a run-in with the law.
As many as you could handle in your holes.
How much did 12 tons of Yaoi cost?
Got any buddies who do straight porn?
>I could become a yaoi retailer
Got any straight porn there at all, in fact?
Especially since he lives in Texas, super fucking strict about this.
Please tell me you have Mentaiko.
But who the hell would be butthurt just because someone is selling drawings of dudes fucking each other-
We ship from San Antonio, Texas and shipping is free.
The Asian Festival and then Mizuumi-con.
I'm a salesman for Ooples Apparel, but not a store employee. As far as I know, they are not hiring atm.
Too much for the owner to disclose with me haha.
If you want to, yeah lol. You're talking to the guy in control of more than half the market right now.
Anything by Project-H, yes. Shocking Pink is an example.
Nah, we're following protocol and such. I'm surprised it's legal though haha.
Unfortunately, I do not. Sorry if I forgot to reply earlier. Does the artist go by another name? It might be listed under a different name.
Fujoshis are landwhales.
Shigeru (shounen zoom)?
Either of these two?
I'm not a buyfag, but do make sure to stop by a homothread next time you see one up, OP.
Fat fujoshis and landwhales, measured in tons, get it?
Are you the asshole who opened an anime store in a really shitty building then refused to pay the people who worked for you, saying that your friendship was payment enough?
>refused to pay the people who worked for you, saying that your friendship was payment enough
You might as well asked if OP was Jewish.
Holy fuck I would have loved to have been there to witness this.
Tried posting on /y/ but it seems dead. Will do though.
Sorry, no. Going to post the list in a little bit.
Nope. I'm working for that guy. I helped him open the store at the start. I was his good friend for years and still am but don't agree with his way of doing business at all.
Do you atleast get paid?
Tell us more about 'that guy'
Why don't you agree with him?
It was quite the drama for our anime community. I have been working on an anime company of my own but it is hard to find partners.
I get commission on the sales I make, so yes. I don't get hourly wage or anything though so I'm not technically in the same boat as those other people.
Woah woah woah hold up. There was someone that actually did that? Wouldn't this guy be charged with some sort of crime for not paying his employees? There's no way that someone could do that unless they're totally autismal.
I want to hear more about your employer, sounds like either a retard or a god.
>No hourly wage
Does america not have a minimum wage or something?
A rough estimate, most yaoi doujinshi are about 100g
12 metric tons is 1.2e+7 grams
Assuming they are 12.95 dollars like you said,
1554000 dollars for 12 tons of yaoi
Not if you don't work hourly. Sales people get paid commission - the idea being you work, you get money, you don't, you don't.
>You're talking to the guy in control of more than half the market right now.
How does it feel to be at the top? Are you like a mafia lord, where anyone who wants to see pictures of guys with large hands has to go through you? Do you say things like "Me? I'm still big! It's the yaoi that got small." If not, you should seriously consider doing so.
>Twelve tons of buttslut smut
Minimum wage is for working hourly. Commission means he gets money for each thing sold. So if he doesn't sell anything = no money.
We can say there's probably an average of 3 unique dicks per manga, so we can assume theres ~360 thousand dicks in there.
He's a nice guy for the most part but has a really abrasive personality so he comes off as a dick. The whole 'free labor' thing was a huge blow to our friendship but eh, I don't have time to worry about such matters too deeply.
I think an anime store should support the community and the fans rather than rip them off and cheat them.
Yeah haha it was done. I heard about people taking him to court but that was around the time I stopped going to the store.
I'd say both tbh. He's done utterly stupid things yet has done phenomenal as a small business. Especially in the anime industry here in Texas lol.
It does, but I chose pure commission for higher pay.
Honestly, I'm still waiting for it to hit me. Maybe I'd feel better if it were loli haha.
I'm losing it here.
I'm fucking dying irl right now. This thread has proven to be worth my time lol.
Stop using "lol" so much faggot. Actually, never use it again here.
Iku, you said you have project H. Do you have Velvet Kiss? (And more importantly, will you do singles of books? I am not a bookstore)
If you do, I'm buying.
Is there any shota in there?
Good fucking luck if there isn't.
>Unfortunately, I do not
I, too, would have bought some Mentaiko. You should stock it in the future.
Are they insured? If so, burn them our glorious Lord
Yes, I have over 1000 copies of both volumes. I will sell single books if you'd like. Trying to help out anons and make some sales simultaneously.
I know there is from when I was pulling books for Amazon orders but I don't remember the names off the top of my head.
I'll let the owner know when I visit the store tomorrow.
I don't think so, but that sounds tempting as fuck tbh.
>Yes, I have over 1000 copies of both volumes
Where do I send my money.
(if linking isn't cool, because heh, sales, 4chan, toss me an email)
Sell me some.
Inventory list would be fucking great.
Getting a screencap of the list. Sorry it's taking long.
>Wants to sell that sheer quantity of pornography
>Doesn't have a website
Shit nigger what are you doing?
Ooples.com but I don't think they are uploaded on the site. I stopped working on it many moons ago so it's whatever the owner did. I'm not expecting much.
this literally looks like a half finished site. all the trimmings are there but the main page is missing
How is Texas relevant to this in anyway? Maybe he's afraid of violating import/export laws, but if you're implying gay porn is illegal anywhere in the US you're ignorant.
oh the irony
Holy fucking fuck man. The site used to actually have shit...

Anything pornographic is bad, even worse if the characters look underage. Anything gay is really, really looked down upon, even loli is illegal.
>Dog X Cat
I'm sure this is a real book, but I lol'd.
Some of the titles make me laugh. They are probably more erotic sounding in moon runes.
if you have no argument
And? People are allowed to dislike gay porn. There's nothing illegal about it.
The loli law has only been enforced once in 10 years. Yaoi isn't illegal by any measure.
Lolicon can't be imported legally but it can be downloaded and viewed legally. It's protected as art, somefuckinghow.
>even loli is illegal
C-could I get a double-check on that? Just to be 100%.

I live in Texas and I have never once heard about any largescale upset about any kind of anime porn.
>has no argument
>gets called on it
>cries about it
Loli is technically illegal thanks to the PROTECT Act, but in practice it's not. It's only been enforced once. I just got remembered of this the other day since another imageboard I go to banned lolis out of the blue.
>I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone
>Maybe I'm Your Steppin' Stone
That sounds lewd.
My argument is gay porn is not illegal and you are complaining for literally no reason.
>I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone
>Maybe I'm Your Steppin' Stone
Why was that so funny
Why wouldn't it be?
Guys, I'll be posting more pics tomorrow at 8PM central time. This time with timestamps and an actual product list. Since I goofed tonight, I'll make the discount for you guys a bit larger.
Not buying, but you're a breddy nice guy. Faggot. Ganbatte!
Either way, I enjoyed everyone's posts. It was a fun thread and hopefully it will be again tomorrow.
See you later. I'll always think of you as the Yaoilord of San Antonio.
Guys, A-kon is in Texas, and San Antonio has San-Japan. No one is getting angry about drawn penises.
Do you ever take advantage of knowing an unruly customer's address and send him boxes and boxes of yaoi pizzas?
Only tumblr and jon stewart fans thinks you can get kicked out of Texas for drawing penises.
>Prohibits computer-generated child pornography when "(B) such visual depiction is a computer image or computer-generated image that is, or appears virtually indistinguishable from that of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct; (as amended by 1466A for Section 2256(8)(B) of title 18, United States Code).
>Prohibits drawings, sculptures, and pictures of such drawings and sculptures depicting minors in actions or situations that meet the Miller test of being obscene, OR are engaged in sex acts that are deemed to meet the same obscene condition. The law does not explicitly state that images of fictional beings who appear to be under 18 engaged in sexual acts that are not deemed to be obscene are rendered illegal in and of their own condition (illustration of sex of fictional minors).
>The Miller test was developed in the 1973 case Miller v. California. It has three parts:
>Whether "the average person, applying contemporary community standards", would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest,
>Whether the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by applicable state law,
>Whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value
The Miller test is kind of bogus though and it'd be difficult to prosecute anyone on it
