It was from the weight on the 18-wheelers when it was hauled from Cali. I have the inventory list with the final number.

I'm disappointed to export that shit but at least it's out of our hands now.

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.

>>100690430
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.

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?

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?

>>100690904
They do, but their numbers are rather low. The industry is growing lately though.

>>100690956
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.

>>100690958
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

>>100691031
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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

>>100692598
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.
>>
>>100692516

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.
>>

>>
>>100692657
>No hourly wage
Does america not have a minimum wage or something?
>>
>>100692173
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
>>
>>100692744
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.
>>
>>100692173
>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.

Minimum wage is for working hourly. Commission means he gets money for each thing sold. So if he doesn't sell anything = no money.
>>
>>100692777
We can say there's probably an average of 3 unique dicks per manga, so we can assume theres ~360 thousand dicks in there.
>>
>>100692653
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.

>>100692654
I think an anime store should support the community and the fans rather than rip them off and cheat them.

>>100692683
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.

>>100692720
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.

>>100692744
It does, but I chose pure commission for higher pay.

>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.[2] 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
