Read the guide before asking anything buyfag related, contains all the basic info and much more:
The head looks way too huge in proportion to the body
But that's all anime in general.
It looks like it's the angle
And the eyes. Normal people dont have eyes like these...
There's a deal near me to get a lot of cans of compressed air for very cheap, should I get some for cleaning figures? I've always just used a microfiber cloth and cotton swabs for cleaning mine, so I've no idea if it's useful or if it's too strong for figures.
Why use them for cleaning your figures when you could use them to kill yourself instead?
Just make sure you use the compressed air can properly. If not, some water might shoot out. Other than that, compressed air works great for me.
Compressed air works perfectly fine, but I have seen some people worrying about the chemicals used.
>legitimate question about another way to clean figures
>hurr kill yourself
I was serious.
>Awaiting Customs clearance
I hope manda undervalued it enough so that i don't have to deal with parcelforce, and if so hopefully it will arrive on Monday.
I sure hope that NY will put up Belphegor.
And so am I. Get out.
Sounds good to me, it'll save me from worrying about cleaning some more delicate parts if I can just blow it off.
so some anon pointed out the bads of this fig, I'm contemplating buying it but I've never heard of phat before. are they shit?
The colors are so flat and the crabcore pose is stupid as fuck
HYPE FOR BEST GOD EATER
From what i gather they are on the lower end of mediocre, also i plan on waiting till after Wonfes to see if any other KLK scales get announced and if not then i will think about preordering that one.
I suppose but I still like the figure, but is the manufacturer shit?
>are they shit?
>The colors are so flat
I actually think the attempt at shading on her skin looks much more terrible than the flat black/red of her outfit.
Do you have human eyes? To me, it looks normal, especially considering her bodytype and supposed age. If you're gonna complain about anything, they did make her thighs slightly too fat. But whose to say that was a bad decision?
So, I just realized the other day you can ask Support anything and they'll reply back.
>*** When replying, please reply directly to this email and quote any previous responses. ***

Hold me /a/ ;_;
Btw, I thought her name was Amiami-tan, Is there a relation between Sonico and Amico?
Your new is leaking
Your retard is leaking
Kuroneko sweet lolita get.... fuck... im so lonely.
Are you so lacking in common sense?
Is it legal for AmiAmi to charge sales tax for foreigners on items that they didn't discount from retail price?
>is it legal to charge tax
what tax are you even talking about?
I just ordered 3 CDs.
Am I officially a buyfag now?
I Watch anime, buy stuff on Amiami, and discuss shittalk on /a/. I don't read web posts/ IRC/ anything to do outside those 2 sites, so ya. Apparently I'm ignorant.
Tax should be on price you're playing, not retail price, unless it's a rebate.
>I don't read web posts/ IRC/ anything to do outside those 2 site
>implying those have anything to do with it
lurk more and never post again.
Been here for 5 years, pray tell what I'm missing then?
No, just a fag.
>pray tell what I'm missing then?
Every buyfag thread for the last forever, apparently.
Don't bother. Buy an electric duster instead. It might seem costly at first, but you'll save a lot in the long run.
I bought this one and it's worked wonders for me. And no, it's not too strong for figures, at least not PVC ones.
Way to go, man. You're living the life. Better ignore your jealous haters and continue on being awesome. Sounds like you could be bbfs5ever with the likes of MFC users Soliloquy, Chloe-tsundere, and R_Dorothy since you're all so shitty and autistic.
I like being called shitty and autistic for something no one's willing to tell me I'm missing.
>Been here for 5 years
And apparently you don;t even know Amiami's mascot name, nor get why both of those names are similar?
Why do you even know who those shits are in the first place?
>Just lost an auction I've been steadily following for three days
>Can't find them anywhere else
JESUS, FUCKING, CHRIST You've got to be fucking kidding me.
Truly only the retarded and the damned have to resort to Y!JA to get their items, and I'm qualified for both.
Things could've been so much easier if you could just get them off Mandarake or some shit instead of fighting via proxy with other neckbeards. For fucks sake.
It's still cheaper to buy 6 packs at Costco for 20$ in the long run.
You have been here for SOOO long that you should know.
>Shoulder duster electric hammer
The hell is this crap?
oh, THAT'S what everyone being so elitist about?
I know she's the mascot and everything, which is why I would love to own a figure of her, I was just wondering if anyone had an idea of who her name is Amico instead of Amiami(Something). if it was just a name, then that's all that needed to be said. I was just curious if there was a deeper meaning.
>Truly only the retarded and the damned have to resort to Y!JA to get their items, and I'm qualified for both.
I don't use Y!JA as a last resort for the most part, since there's some pretty good finds there. I once got a set of HQ Strike Witches figures for only $70 shipped.
There's a difference between someone calling you an idiot for not knowing something that's easy to get, and being an elitist.
Unfortunate run ins on MFC.
>THAT'S what everyone being so elitist about?
That's not being elitist, if anything you are the one excusing yourself with how long you have been here. There IS a reason of her names being similar, and it's damn easy to get if you are not that fucking new. Plus., I'm sure some anon sent the exact same question not even half a year ago.
I'm also curious what the fuck that does.
Well I guess that would depend on how long the long run really is, but sucks that shit is almost twice as much as it is here.
Phat is hit and miss lately. If I were you, I would wait for someone else to make a Ryuuko figure.
I would guess a vibrating massager.
>I was just curious if there was a deeper meaning.
Phat has always been hit or miss, except they have been missing way too much as of late.
>Is there a relation between Sonico and Amico?
Oh god, please make a regular series version MegaHouse, I beg you.
I only started wondering about it last night, so not the same person. Nor do I keep up coming here daily. Sometimes I can go weeks without comming to 4chan, other times I browse 6+ hours a day.
making the assumption that just because someones been around for X amount of years means they've been avidly been keeping up with every little detail and new/ and old events, is just childish.
Well, it wouldn't be so childish if people wouldn't avoid a simple answer by replying back with an insult that accomplishes nothing instead of just ignoring the comment and not replying back.
Kinda like how I'm too lazy to properly reply back to all the comments right now.
I don't understand.
Oh it's the movie version.
>just because someones been around for X amount of years means they've been avidly been keeping up with every little detail and new/ and old events
The same could be said of you using how long you have visited this place for when getting called new, just because you lurk once in a while your status of new as fuck does not change.
Specially when the relation of their names is not even board related, but Japanese 101 as someone already pointed out.
Also, posting the same shit twice in two different threads just makes it worse.
>I Watch anime, buy stuff on Amiami, and discuss shittalk on /a/.
>buying stuff on Amiami has NEVER exposed you to the idea of a mascot before
Alternate colors given as a mass release, while original clothing being distributed as an exclusive/ mail order.
I ended up settling for the inferior repaint... was too conceited that all figs would be "Easily" obtainable.
>it's damn easy to get if you are not that fucking new
Not him, but this is one of those things that I've never seen anyone mention because it's assumed that everyone will already know it, so nobody brings it up and consequently I remain in the dark because I don't want to ask. I never knew how to read the sales threads until recently because of that. So I'm glad someone else took the fall. If nobody ever asks then you'll end up lurking but never knowing because no one wants to reveal they're new. And so on and so forth. To tell the truth, I saw people calling Amiami's mascot Amico, and knew there was a Sonico, but never really drew a connection. I honestly still don't know what you guys are talking about.
You could still get the original version, no?
No, even if you're brand new, you can easily get what Amico is from context.
>what are mascots
Yes, at an aftermarket price I wasn't willing to pay, and usually opened with no promise of not already being soiled.
>So I'm glad someone else took the fall
And that's exactly why everybody new should lurk moar/forever.
Obviously she's a mascot. I thought you were trying to say the two were related by companies or some weird secret pact. If you're just referring to "co" = 子 then nevermind.
This thread is shit.
Now the previous line. You can do it anon.
Prefer this version.
they all are
>If you're just referring to "co" = 子 then nevermind.
What could it possibly be otherwise? If you're saying you thought it was similar to Sonico, simplybecause of the "co", then you're retarded. Doubly so, because Sonico is also a mascot , in the same way Amico is.
Guess what genius? People have been telling others how to read sale threads for ages. You just had to check the fucking archive.
Guess what? Sonico is Also a mascot
MINDFUCKING BLOWING AND DAMN HARD AND ELITIST RIGHT?
I'm a completely different guy from the one who asked the original question. You guys were all like "you don't understand why their names are similar?" and "holy shit, you didn't know?" and I started to think I missed something. But apparently I didn't.
Anyway, this whole conversation is stupid as fuck. Post your preorders or something, Jesus. And Alter, please say something.
How dare you trivialize Sonico into something so simple as a mascot. She's much more than that: she's a woman of incredible depth, and... yeah, I got nothing.
plus unlisted c85 stuff
I'm waiting for mine Madoka now, guess still ~2 weeks to go.
Well shit, good thing I went with Amakuni.
Only Cerberus for me. I'm new to collecting, shes my first pre-order.
Anyone getting this? I already have the original release but this one looks nice. Plus it's got English subs on some things and I'm curious to know if they've simply re-used the Bandai's.
Have fun with Godoka's wings and getting her to balance with the standard figma stand.
That is fucking adorable.
Yes, yes I am.
It's likely that the English subs are not Bandai's, since the American and Japanese distributors are unrelated.
that gets cuter and cuter every time i watch it
Is june this year's rape month?
Pre-ordered and ready to go
They better do season two too
May for me, my June is pretty light.
Hoping Alter delays Kazuno to April. Unless Link is delayed again, then March works just fine. I just hope yen doesn't get too strong before then.
Ara ara, look what finally came in.
i would assume so since they have us to siphon money from with the English subs
Akiko-san to Issho 13? If so did you get the bonus poster with it?
No idea. I ordered soon after Comiket, we will see when it arrives, hopefully later this week.
Ara ara, look at what I got today. To the guy who asked if I got the bonus poster, sadly no.
If Toranoana says the poster was available on the product page, you should get it.
too much moe
I can't read moon, so I couldn't read the description at all, nor see if there was a mention of a poster. That being said, I do intend to scan it, and hope someone TLs it.
This is the only Kancolle thing I want.
>what is google translate
I've got a bit of a problem. I dun-goofed with a t-shirt order and ordered the wrong size from Hobby Search and it's too late to cancel (i.e. order notifications have gone out), though I did email them about this and they are willing to discuss terms of a cancellation, even this late.
I'm not entirely sure how to word the email though. Any help? To add, I would be willing to order a larger size, providing it goes on general sale.
It's all downhill for my wallet starting next month.
Wait, this 13... Oh wow, what kind of rock have I've been living in?
Time to stalk exhentai.
Doki Doki De Kowaresou
Kinda wish Alter didn't use those designs.
Worst prince wouldn't buy
And now I feel really bad for missing out on the other figure.
Fuck, there's not even anything I can do.
captcha: proper banksen
Do you guys buy only characters you care about or anything that looks good?
Because I suddenly realized that my 12 figures have three names combined and I still feel like I must buy more waifu, and everything else some other day.
I want, Alter Rei, Want RAH Rei, want some other Rei, if I ever find Ballerina Rei while having any money I will pay even if I will have to starve.
There's so much more Rei than I can ever pay, and i want it all.
Same, Debut or All Star outfits would have been nice.
>Not buying all the princes, senpais, senseis, etc
>Tomo-chan scale never.
Very nice. How is Rinko-mama to Issho?
I'm still waiting for my preorders:
(they would have arrived/shipped sooner if I didn't keep adding to the order).
not to much lots of BD's though
This is 13*
Anyways congrats on the purchase and great taste. I have 1-12.
AmiAmi mailed out a package to me in the US on Jan. 9 via SAL and I'm still waiting for it. How lovely.
It's gonna be a good year.
Alter, please say something about a Judith figure.
>Do you guys buy only characters you care about or anything that looks good?
All of the figures I own are of characters I care about, though I'm not opposed to buying a figure of a nameless character only because I like the design.
>Because I suddenly realized that my 12 figures have three names combined and I still feel like I must buy more waifu
I have 13 Saber figures and she's not even my waifu. Just buy whatever you like, anon.
And how is that rare?
Characters I care about, I don't have the money to just buy everything I think looks good or every character from every series.
Stop bitching. All my RSALs are constant 3-4 weeks, deal with it.
Trying to take it much slower this year
>not your waifu
I don't know why you guys bother with SAL if you're just going to complain about it.
I remember reading 1-3 of Akiko-san as if it was last week. That artist draws very nice proportions and tits, I have to admit, though I'm a bit surprised that he's been able to milk Kanon for that long.
So far all my figs are of characters I like, but that new Range Murata girl is pretty tempting.
>Live in Canada
>Live in the smack dab MIDDLE of it
>Sal is always atleast 25 days on a good trip
>Then there's this faggot
I still love you, but please watch your entitlement.
Too bad I'm not a big fan of shimakaze.
I've got a lot of two different characters because one's my waifu and the other has a few nice figures. The rest of my figures are spread across figures of characters I like, as long as the figures themselves look good. And then I have a bunch of figures that look great but I don't know the source or have a source. The majority of my preorders this year are in the latter category for some reason such as the Seven Sins to come out and Cerberus.
SAL took about 3 weeks for me in Alberta, must be hell waiting up to a month at the least
>tfw i got a package from amazonjp in a little over 24 hours
The former. I'm not a poorfag, I'd just rather buy figs of characters I have a close attachment to. It feels more satisfying.
Also, if I bought everything I thought looked nice, it would be an absolute clusterfuck. Having too many figs out looks like shit.
>Needing to be a fan to enjoy a cute character goods item
It's still gonna be the only Kancolle thing in my collection, it's just so gaddamn cute~
I have the two best faggots and I'm happy with them.
I'm not entirely sure myself, I just really like Saber.
I guess it also kind of feels like a collection that I want to complete one day.
do you have the mythical sader yet?
It's taking longer than usual. Usual SAL packages are 10-day deals for me, but then again, I only order from AmiAmi once a year (before my points expire).
>Usual SAL packages are 10-day deals for me
Where do you live?
your collection won't be complete until you get her
West coast USA. Not California.
My usual packages are marked Gift and valued at 500-1000 yen despite being 20cm X 40cm X 30cm with no padding and stuffed to the brim with toys. Somehow that passes through customs at lightning speed compared to an AmiAmi box half the size and weight and marked Merchandise.
Whenever you post here you have a 50/50 shot of some socially retarded neckbeard taking their sexual frustration out on you. Ignore.
>West coast USA.
I am now reflecting on how much money I wasted on EMS. I should start using SAL.
After getting about 25 packages within 6 months from Japan while testing various methods, I've come to a general conclusion that marking something as Gift tends to make it go faster and the actual value declared doesn't matter at all (granted, I haven't had anything declared for more than 10,000 yen). Merchandise seems to be a crapshoot of 10 days to 2 weeks OR 3+ weeks, not much in-between.
You should easily understand why. Mandarake and Amiami are under the custom lists for reputable merchants. Thus, the US knows whatever is in those boxes have things you can tax without relatively no effort/ complains.
But that doesn't matter when NiJ and N-Y will refuse to ship anything as a gift. I'm not sure about Mandarake though since I boycotted them after a DHL fiasco.
Hobbysearch and Amiami won't mark gift either.
I don't think either merchant will sell or ship 200,000 yen worth of merchandise packed into a small SAL Small Packet box.
Nearly all of my packages come from forwarding or CDJapan, both of which will mark Gift, so it works out nicely for me.
What did Mandarake do with DHL for you?
Short story, criminal record and they discarded my Shinobu scale, and wouldn't give me the Tokiko figure it was shipped with. +fine
>discard your shit
was there even any reason to discard it, besides DHL being assholes?
So you're a felon and DHL refused to deliver to prison?
It was a nice short read, decent /ss/. Rinko looks pretty damn hot in it.
Listed sex offender?
What's that one on the right?
>Hetare Sakura nendoroid
There are not enough words in the english language describing how much I hate the early nendoroid stands especially dealing with the one for her.
They obviously mistook the PVC smell for cocaine
>Yamato 2198 doujin
Are we finally getting good Yamato doujins? As that one looks really delicious.
Goddamit, the thighs also suffered in the transition.
It all makes sense now. Did you get caught for loli porn and they mistook you for a pedophile + importing obscene material involving representations of underage girls?
I'm currently posting from a prison computer.
Now we wait to see if ParcelForce will be cunts
Wait, do have a criminal record because of what you tried to import?
thank god i don't live in canada
>tfw living in Japan but haven't found any good figures I want online or in-store
You're gonna need to back that up with some sort of proof.
What you'd do to get in jail?
I think his monthly internet hour is up.
I bragged about having cp on facebook
Oh, Thad. Sup.
Awesome, thanks. Now I just have to wait for my copy to arrive.
It's Bolze's C85 GBF work. (I didn't get the omake though).
I won't be able to scan anything for a while, sorry.
This particular work is the 4th Circle Outer World Yamato doujinshi. I have 3 (including the one in the pic). Only one of them has been scanned so far I believe.
Cool story bro.
Aren't the same person. One doesn't even use full-stops.
How's prison, Thad?
But really, what did you do?
i hope next time you come up with better folder names thad
detective anon on the case
Aren't you not allowed to use the internet?
>I bragged about having cp on facebook
Are you really Thad?
If so, you deserved it. Also, aren't you banned from using the internet?
Thad hasn't been jailed
I'll ask again
If I'm looking for, say, a figma to use as posing reference, which would you recommend?
Both male and female
Does BiJ offer USAL? Or is that what "SAL" means?
>you need to be put in jail to not be allowed on the internet
So I'm going to go for NY's new shipping method for EU, but has anyone else noticed that their VAT amount is incorrect? For me they're charging about 27%.
Read how everything started
>I'm currently posting from a prison computer.
He is not Thad
Get special ragdolls for artists. Figmas are not the very best with motion, You can't make them squat or kneel, the torso doesn't bend/twist much.
But if it's about anime figures - maybe you should get a Fraulein Revoltech or Real Action Heroes figures, They seen to be more posable than figma.
Wasn't it a bath toy?
I surely hope people didn't actually believe it was him
I'm new around and here, and a bit curious of this Thad person?
Frances VAT is 20% plus fixed rates.
27% doesn't sound that off.
Theres a 5% on top of that 20% that they charge as Duty tax.
>Aren't you not allowed to use the internet?
>Thad hasn't been jailed
This is what I was responding to
>He is not Thad
If you seriously thought it might be, or thought you might need to make the correction that it's not, maybe you should take a break from the internet.
Jesus Christ, I'm a retard and keep on seeing 2kg as 0.2kg.
>Get special ragdolls for artists
You don't mean those shitty wooden ones, right?
Looks cute. Those arms though.
All I'd seen when I was looking into their VAT was that it was 20%, makes sense now. Ah well, it'll still work out cheaper this way than the alternatives but 20K for Mammon is going to hurt. Especially since Belphegor is supposed to come out that time as well and is probably going to cost about the same.
>you can make them hold hands
Search the archives for 'Thad'.
And I wanswered with the docket case since the anon I quoted specifically mention
>Aren't you not allowed to use the internet?
I might be stating the obvious but it was an obvious answer for a retarded question
>only 50 pieces
time to end myself.
Why don't you use BiJ?
I'm tempted to use the praying hands from casual Kyouko to get her to hold hands with the other Kyouko.
Mammon is out of stock there and would have cost more anyway.
I don't understand law-speak. Can someone translate?
>This item requires pre-payment due to its high price. As this is an order-made item, the order will be canceled if payment cannot be confirmed within one week of placing your order. Pre-payment items must be shipped by themselves.
I didn't see this was the case and I have 2 BDs sitting in my monthly orders. Will I get an e-mail at some point?
That got arrested
Thad went nuts and attempted suicide when they removed the internet
Thad was drugged
That used the internet again
Thad went nuts and attempted suicide when they removed the internet
Thad was drugged
That's pretty much it so far
>It was a bad idea and even worse to get caught.
>Be smart and don't go down the Thad route.
What are the chances that some extra stock of Figma Shimakaze will be available or even better a second pre-order window at the usual sites? I got one reserved in one of my fallback shops, but if I can get her for less that'll be great.
So I want to buy something. Currently I don't have a credit card, but I might ask an uncle if he can lend me his. How does it appears in the credit card statement when you buy something in Amiami?
Just AmiAmi or something like that?
That's just trashy.
Surely you have paypal or a debit card.
>paypal or a debit card
>debit cards can't be used online unless tied to a paypal through a bank account
Unless I am mistaken we can't use debit card with paypal in Argentina.
NSFW ads on MFC? Classy.
AMI AMI TOKYO
Actually plenty of debit cards can be used online, without linking them to paypal.
>Companies doing figures for worst BB
>Alter doing a Mu scale instead of superior Nu or Saya.
>All these shit Saya clones (Nu and Lambada are nice)
>Freeing doing Rachel and Makoto and fucking up
>No scale for best boy
I'm still waiting for my Arakune scale.
Those are Debit/Credit cards. Debit cards, the old ones, can't be used online. Debit/Credit cards come with a CVV number and are tied to a credit bureau, so they can function similar to a credit card for online purchases. There is a difference.
Nah, I've used my debit card for online purchases exclusively.
If that is true. Thanks
if you don't have a debit card with online purchase capabilities, talk to your bank. Most banks should let you upgrade your card for free/a small fee.
Get your own card. If you're too young or untrustworthy financially to do so, rethink priorities.
>There will one day be a Nu figure in her battle suit
>There will be a Lambda recolor
Never stop believing.
Did it have a CVV number attached to it?
Let's not have this discussion again. Personally, if a "debit" card has no CVV number I refer to it as an ATM card as that is all its good for.
Any information about a Nonon figure in the works?
Neither of both, well maybe young (20) but I don't have a stable job so I can't get a credit card for now.
Yeah, but I thought all cards had it.
Perhaps one day, who knows WonFes might surprise.
Since it's Later I'll be buying that Mu figure.
ATM card or EFTPOS card in some places
If it has a CVV number, it's not technically a debit card, it's debit/credit.
I'm asking more if that Yamato doujin is good, rather than if you're scanning it.
only character whose figure is worth making/waiting for is satsuki
Yes, two nendoroids, a figma and a 1/8 are on the way.
They're making a castoff. It by I'm lying no one is making one of her.
I signed up for a regular debit card so I assumed it was normal.
You got a normal debit card, you just have old farts who can't move on and still call ATM cards debit cards
Get Play-Doh, Paint it Black and make a paper cutout of his mask. You now have your exclusive Arakune figure.
I rather have Nono figure that isn't shit unlike that Rio:Bone one...
>you got a normal debit card
you mean debit/credit card. NOT a debit card. Debit cards do not have CVVs.
yes they do fuck off already
>wanting shit voice
Not all debit cards has CVV, mine doesn't because I'm a poor student. But if your bank tells you that your card is debit then it is a debit card, not some debit/credit bullshit. Don't listen to this one retard (only one) in these threads who think having CVV means your card is not debit.
>mai waifu getting married
WHO IS THE BASTARD!?
>yes they do
>no they don't
>yes they do
>no they don't
There is a goddamn difference. A Debit/Credit card has a CVV number, a regular Debit card has NO CVV.
Can't justify your shit taste any better.
It was pretty good, but the excessive censorship (total genital mosaic instead of the black bars from the previous works) was rather disappointing.
Show me a card has 'debit/credit' labelled on it
If only I could take the colors, the outfit, and and the face from the left, and the body from the right.
show me a debit card that has ATM card or EFTPOS on it.
Debit/Credit cards also have the logo of a major credit bureau on them. Debit/Credit has CVV, Debit does not.
Time to cancel my preorder. Sorry Caster, as much as I love ya, your balloons ruin your new look.
Why is her hair transparent at the ends? It looks shitty.
Anyone in Nipland picked up Senjougahara yet?
I always wanted to see the comparison between the two of them and it's really awesome we got it so early.
The fact that the same artist did both of them is really horrifying.
Right >>>>>> shit >> left
It's not called debit/credit you moron, stop posting
She's not real, anon.
>I'M RIGHT YOU'RE WRONG NOW STOP ARGUING WITH ME
They are Debit/Credit NOT Debit cards.
They are debit, visa and MC just link them wherever you are. The funds are taken from your account the very exact moment you use a debit card on the internet.
You are not using Visa/MCs funds.
The thing is what you call "debit/credit" cards only work if you have the money in your account. You can basically charge a whole fucking lot of shit only on your credit card even if you don't have the money at the moment.
It's not debit/credit faggot.
Even the companies call them plain debit, fuckwad.
>You are not using Visa/MCs funds.
not him, but I am covered by Visa with my Visa Debit with TD Bank. It may not be "using their funds", but you get full coverage depending on the card.
Sick design, how do I get chase to make one like that for me?
Jokes on me I'm just hiding the /credit part with my thumb
You're not the banks. Stop spreading your lies everytime this question is asked you fucking moron.
Also, you have just posted your credit card number on the internets.
Just because they give you the same benefits they don't magically become a credit card or a "Debit/Credit", it's a debit card backuped by Visa/MC
I don't know if they even offer it anymore, but I had a similar one with Bank of America years back. Yes, it also said ATM Card on it.
I never said that nullifies your argument.
It's an ATM card, you ignoramus.
Are you retarded? It was the first fucking image for searching ATM card.
I'm still in for one. The more Marika figures, the better.
Still have to put together those Bentenmaru models too. Someday...
Chase has good credit card designs, but the bank itself isn't that great. It's only a step behind Bank of America.
Wells Fargo should take lessons from Chase. They're a decent bank, but their cards are as dull as they come.
Yeah, I am.
Pretending to be retarded isn't funny.
>all those Crabs
And I still need to buy them. February is a pretty light month, guess I'll do it then. Still can't decide on that Marika. I suppose I'll reserve judgement until after I see the movie.
I have until Feb. 1 to confirm my order of her.
I already have the original Fate/Extra version of her so I'm okay with not getting the CCC version, but I still like the CCC version. It's her adorably round tiny hat that does it for me.
Should I /a/? Or should I save my weeb bucks for something that I would enjoy more?
Yes since she'll probably bargain bin
So order now or later?
I'm canceling my order right now.
Why did her tail become so much bigger?
Oh sorry, I meant cancel her.
Yeah, I love caster, but her original version just looks so much better in figure form. He new look looks alright in the game, but not too much in figure form. Nice stand though.
Excuse me wtf r u doin
>okay I'm not rushing things, gonna order SAL, it's just waiting a bit longer, not big deal since I'll get it and keep forever.

That gives me some real stress.

This has been going on for two weeks now, I expect that it's just Parcelforce being cunts or David Cameron trying to wring more money out of me
Not you're blog
Only 4 days left to get a headphone doujin and tapestry. Less than $2k to go for additional pages.
I know what are you feeling, It was hard for me too but in the end I ordered her.
I love Caster so much I really wanted her in her new outfit and so far no one except Phat Company announced her figure even when so much time passed since F/E CCC (Saber Bride have ~7 figures so far).
If somebody will release better CCCCaster then I will most probably sell this one.
yfw you pledge $90 for shikishi and get the beats one
I really want it being a bit of an audiophile and all, but I'm too broke for just the art book.
You'd want it less if you were an audiophile because the only decent cans there are the Q701s and they're overrated because of Mio
I agree, but my funds could help hitting the 20k mark, meaning more pages.
I hope that the success of this prompts them to make a sequel that hopefully has much better headphones.
Where can I find a store that sells only card sleeves?
But how much of the money will even be going to the illustrator? The entire kickstarter project is just for translating the already finished art book.
Nottu dis shit again
French Doll does it again
It's better than nothing, and this is well past the original goal so it's something I guess.
SNAP SNAP SNAP
The sight under that skirt must be glorious
Not to sound like a dick or anything but that sounds like the mindset of people who stream anime via. Crunchyroll to 'support' the industry
Wouldn't mind a figure of this hanekawa.
Fuck off Tomoko
People don't really care where their money goes, as long as they can trick themselves into thinking they're helping the industry.
like how people with limewire pro are somehow supporting the industry? you've got a point I guess
Panties are the most secret place of a woman. It is where they can shed their social facade and wear what they truly want to wear, knowing the only person to ever see them is the one they love.
>that whole panty episode of norin
who is this chacter?
I don't know what you're talking about.
if you like panties than the second episode is for you
What in the fuck?
google give me a bunch of 3DPD.
>that whole panty episode of norin
I still cannot comprehend how childhoodfriend-chan just went and took them off while she still had her shorts on. How the fuck?
Here you go~
Well, it's the special edition, what'd you expect?
Original Monhan character
>that sounds like the mindset of people who stream anime via. Crunchyroll to 'support' the industry
Mamare Touno (Author of Log Horizon) said that crunch roll helps.
From the Q & A:
>How can us fans overseas show support and future demand for more seasons of Log Horizon? Are blu-ray sales the most important factor?
>Of course the sales are the most important factor.
>That said, it's not the only important factor.
>The view count on Crunchy Roll, the comments, and the fan letters are also important.
all had to do was type "nourin panties" on youtube.
You guys forgot to expand the image.
Except he mentioned that as emotional support, not actually supporting the industry.
I just tried it expanded and got nothing.
I didn't ask for anything anon.
It's a special movie edition I think, it's a standard price for that.
I just canceling that.
After some thinking, I want kindle more than saber.
Where did he say that is was only "emotional support"? The entire transcript is in the archive.
>view count comments and fan letters
that's purely emotional support for the author and the staff, not financial support for the industry. Crunchyroll doesn't help shit.
I tried expanding but 4chanx's google link still use thumbnail.
Context, learn it. The views are only a popularity gage. The rate car pays I'd fixed.
>view counts comments and letters provide significant financial support to the industry
The crunchyroll question came up again later:
>Do you think Crunchyroll is the future of anime in foreign countries in getting money to you quickly, sensei? A lot of anonymous apparently use it to support your works from overseas.
>I'm really thankful for it. Thanks to Crunchyroll, Japan anime is being spread legally, and in a timely manner.
And again, h ed I'd talking about reach and not monetary backing. Overseas sales are a joke compared to what they get from Japan, and CR provides even less
Point out where he says that crunchyroll financially supports the industry.
See how the question is about money, and the answers are about general support. He just doesn't want to tell gaining gives almost nothing and since he's a pretty chill guy just th e thought of getting his work enjoyed makes him happy.
>view counts comments and letters provide significant financial support to the industry
Even in north America letters to comic companies and even television producers affect the outcome of the product.
Fan mail has saved many western series. The same is true for japan. It helps producers loosen the purse strings a bit more.
But it still isn't financial support.
Just point a time when western letters have saved a Japanese series. Just one.
Products made for the American public.
Anime is mostly for otaku, they don't give a shit about some gaijin that won't buy their BDs for $80 each.
I don't know anything about letters, but western audiences saved The Big O.
Fuck. It's pictures like those that make me want her. Worst possible outcome is I just keep her in her box and sell her if it happens.
It wasn't just the audience. Cartoon Network produced the second season.
>Just point a time when western letters have saved a Japanese series. Just one.
I claimed western letters saved western series. Japanese fan letters saved Japanese series (very common with manga in particular).
The impact of the west on products made for the JDM is small, but they do get some revenue from it. if somethign is popualr in the west it can get a "second wind" in Japan as well.
WataMote was a good example of this. 4chan's interest in the series became newsworthy in Japan, and this international interest helped domestic sales improve.
>moving the goalposts
And the end result was the same: they got a second season. Same with Cartoon Network funding IGPX. It can definitely happen, even more so no that we're given ways to directly fund series (like LWA).
time to go home, CR devs.
More like stating the truth, Sunrise didn't produce the second season just because of the western audience, Cartoon Network had to financially aid them to get it done.
Watamote is completely different though, since many people actually imported the manga and merchandise.
Licensed stuff and overseas sales make up for no more than 2% of a series revenue, and CR does not pay for the number of viewers, they just pay a flat rate. So it's not like you are particularly giving something to the industry, all they can earn with your shitty subscription can also be earned without it.
You said "name a Japanese series that was saved by western letters (support)" and that's an example if there ever was one. You didn't specify exactly how it had to be done.
>even more so no that we're given ways to directly fund series (like LWA)
Not sure if you are comparing a full direct donation to CR.
Damn, your preorders look similar to what mine would be if I had enough money to buy everything I wanted. I really want to get all the CGs too but I can only afford to focus on Love Live and im@s. And even then I can't afford all the LL BQs so I have to stick to my favorites. But the real rape's coming from the 3 first release limited edition games.
It wasn't saved by western letters, it was saved by western investments and sales.
I wasn't comparing anything to CR: just expanding upon the "western funding for Japanese products" train of thought.
You are the one moving the goalposts by replacing plain letters with merchandise sales and financial aid from a western company.
Sales are even better than letters, and that still doesn't change the fact that it was from Japan.
>asks for an example where western support and western fans help a Japanese series
>cannot comprehend the perfect example
I bought an Etopen plush and it watches over me, protecting me as I sleep.
Are there any other large, cute things I should buy while I'm at it?
>time to go home, CR devs.
I was the one who brought up Mamare Touno's comments on crunchyroll, and I don't use it or any other streaming service.
I have been downloading anime since 1997 and that isn't going to change. I am too much of a hoarder to stream.
I'm confused after this. What is the purpose? Is it just reviews of headphones and art of girls wearing headphones?
>someone else also pretends that their merchandise protects them while they sleep
More /v/-related, but I used to own a huge-ass stuffed Pikachu. That thing made for a great pillow, too.
Apparently there's a whole market for books full of 2D girls with headphones. For the intersection of audiophile and otaku, I guess.
>Sales are even better than letters
NO FUCKING SHIT, and that was the point of the discussion regarding CR if you haven;t noticed. with CR not even counting as sales.
>The second part of the book is a headphone round-table discussion with 9 different Namco sound engineers [...] Also included is an interview with HIDEYUKI Daichi SUZUKI who is an arranger for Hello! Project and an interview with the editor of Tokyo Headphone Magazine.
If that kind of thing floats your boat.
Also 4, maybe 5, of those 6 headphones are trash so I don't see the point. How much is this going to cost? I couldn't find it on the page. The first part of the book is discussing these mostly garbage headphones and the second part is discussion with sound engineers, which is pretty cool.
>CR does not pay for the number of viewers, they just pay a flat rate
That isn't true at all, they actually do pay the creators based on views (as a percentage of subscribers fees).
The website makes it's own money mostly from ad support. Most of the premium subscription fees (200,000 or so paying members) goes towards paying the creators of the anime.
>“If you watch just Naruto, your subscription money goes toward supporting that show. If you watch more than one show, the money is split proportionately among those shows depending on which ones you watch the most,” said Gao.
>So if you’re watching Kill La Kill 75 percent of the time and Golden Time the other 25 percent, that means Kill La Kill’s publisher gets 75 percent of your money.
The fewer series you watch on CR, the more money is sent to the ones you support. But in the end it is not a lot of money.
I didn't notice, because I wasn't talking about CR. That other guy was. Try to keep up, anon.
You asked this before.
Get the Cospa plush toys. 1/1 Clannad Botan, Kanon Piro, Steins;Gate Upa. Go for the 1/1 scale Kyubey and Movic's Iori's Charles bunny plush. Gift's Fumofumos. Nendoroid Plus plushes. 1/1 scale plushes of smaller Pokemon and Digimons. Penguindrum plushes. Plush puppet of Yoshinon from Date A Live.
That should be enough to run you out of $200.
That's a lie, the fee is flat. Shaft made public all the income Madoka originally generated. CR paid a mere 2500 dollars for all the episodes.
ANN had said publication
Also, CR were already profiting from subs beforehand, the guys who run it are jews, that's nothing new. They have hired translators, and pay for the servers with that money they reserve the profit and give the bare minimum to the companies in japan, and actually they give them back to the TV stations not to the production committee.
Maybe in the old payment scheme the fee was flat, but it is now based on viewership.
>the guys who run it are jews
TV Tokyo and TCG have a controlling interest in crunchyroll.
TV Tokyo you are familiar with.
TCG is an investment firm that made "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". They are kind of new.
Actually, writing that post convinced me to order the rest of the LL BQs and the two CGs. Also threw in the Million Live girl for good measure.
Would you a 5 y/o cutting board with SFX?
>but it is now based on viewership

I just started the games today and yes, holy shit best girl by a mile.

I find nothing wrong with blonde loli vampires.
Because you have shit taste and like over played tropes.
What about Platinum the Trinity?
>You will never own the official Jin daki
Californiafag here, I'm the same.
I had around 5 orders during christmas period from octouber to early january, the latest that one arrived was 14 days.
Most of that were loli doujins too.
Feels good man
I hope you die, disgusting pedophile, you're not welcome here
I'm not sure if anyone is able to answer this, but in general would it be quicker to sell something on ebay or on MFC (assuming the price and everything was the same)? I'm not sure how active the buying scene on MFC is, especially considering that what I'm looking to sell are some less-popular nendos as opposed to nice scales etc.
If you haven't tried selling them here, I'd recommend posting what you've got for sale and see if any /a/nons will take them off your hands.
Now that's what I call edgy.
Is this bizarro /a/?
13 days until Wonfes
Depends on the exact item and your pricing scheme (high? low?) but here's the break down:
- more ignorant or casual/mainstream/normalfag buyers willing to pay high if you're lucky
- make sure you set up your Buyer Requirements to weed out the deadbeats
- fees a shit
- don't fuck it up because eBay/PayPal favors buyers 95% of time
- slightly more knowledgeable people who knows more about what they want and the price it's worth
- younger, broke teens & Tumblrfags in the mix
- may vaporize after asking once or twice about something
- sales ad get far less exposure once it's off first page of ads
- limit of one listing per week if you don't donate $$$ to MFC
Take your pick, I've sold on both, and eBay has always delivered better. I'd price something for $1 on MFC and $5 on eBay and the eBay one would sell while not a single soul asked on MFC. Then again, I never donated to MFC, so I haven't tried to list 20 things at once to see how many would get bites.
Why does this product interest you?
It's never coming, get over it.
Vehicle for figma, badass looking, liking things?
Anyone going to make a bingo?
It's a Twenty dollar donation for the physical book.
It's never gonna happen though.
There's nothing else that draws you to it? You just like the way it looks?
Hope Never Dies, until officially canceled.
>Drossel finally coming on Monday
better late than never
that is some nasty shit!
Well it's an "accessory" which I can use with any figma, mainly Mato, for posing purposes.
Woah woah calm down normie.
Here, why don't you sit down and drink tea with me and my waifu? I hope you don't mind her outfit.
Oh right, I forgot about that. I'd rather sell them to anons anyway.
Thanks, I think I'm going to go for ebay if I can't sell everything here. Especially the fact that you can only list one per week on MFC kills my motivation considering I have 7 things.
God damn it anon, stop tempting me.
Go for private/direct sales first (like in buyfag threads) if you are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with selling on eBay.
Wow. Didn't expect that. I thought there was an attachment of another sort to it. It really isn't a nice looking piece to me.
>for posing purposes
I had a dream Koto skipped Laura and went right to Ceclia.
Shit waifu, we all know who the best girl is.
Would definitely fuck the one on the right. Nice filename
Do you know where you are?
because it looks fucking awesome and would go amazingly well in my figma collection
It's like you're asking for a good reason to waste money in a hobby that for most people is, by itself, a big waste of money
Nah, I mean it's just a vehicle, the only backstory to it is from the game which wasn't that DEEP.
Those style of toilets are dumb.
>I like it because I have a personal attachment to it
Is a phrase never said before.
What figure comes with that body?
well, I have the game, I enjoyed the game, and I have the rest of the BRS collection, so i could pose any number of rawk+shoetahs on it.
infact, the first thing i would do would put jet rock shooter on the trike and normal rock shooter on the black figma harley i already own and have them jousting with their fucking retardedly big cannons.
But you got to admit they have an erotic and humiliating element to them or maybe I have just read too much porn.
>inb4 there is a such thing as reading too much porn
I have no attachment to this series whatsoever
I just want it because giant robot arms/ hands are hella
I mean, it doesn't seem that expensive
>the only brs design i like is never going to get anything
That's a shame, I really like that too
I personally prefer Dragon Slayer.
I pledged $40 for this, but to be honest I might pledge for the $50 wallscroll at a stretch, the $180 tier for all shikishi is a rip off.
That and to be honest two of those artwork are shit, I put my money towards purchasing a Hidamari Sketch artbook instead.
GSC establishes overseas branch?
Well fuck you too GSC.
>Pretend to be little girls, actually old women
>Blonde hair and more than likely red eyes
There is only one good loli vampire and we all know who that is.
Cool, I wish they were hiring, would be good to have an insider.
america isnt closer than japan, but good news for ameribros. I think items coming from japan is probably as close to australia as it will get. so whatever
Does this mean cheaper shipping?
So this brings over GSC/MF/Phat/Native and Gift products right?
When is Alter getting on this?
>It's still cheaper to ship from Japan to Mexico than from the US to Mexico
Well, nothing will change for me
Yes, but probably will be the same as Koto: Expect the items to be released a couple of months after the Japanese release.
If you live in the continent, probably yes.
The shipping from the US to other countries is damn expensive, even shipping to Canada is more expensive than shipping something from Japan
I hope they have a storefront. I would definitely apply for a job there.
I'd take an unpaid internship.
>Dirt cheap shipping
Thank you based GSC
Now if only they were hiring/looking for interns.
It's like a video game store opened in town and all the gamers think working there will be amazing, then they discover they've ended up working in Gamestop
>its just like my japanese animes!
No no no, you don't want to work in that sort of industry. Do you really want to answer phone calls and e-mails all day from autists begging for impossible things or screaming about where their package is?
What will happen to Amiko?
I bet they'll use UPS ground or FedEx ground for all their shipping to Canada, which means customs fees that cost more than the product. If GSC tries to stop Japanese sellers from shipping to NA because of this then I am honestly done with them.
With this ebay prices should go down as sellers won't have to make up as much money for shipping.
Even if they didn't have a store, they would still need people to get shit done, then again they will probably ship a bunch of underpaid nips along with the figures in the containers.
I'm willing to bet they'll factor shipping/taxes into the retail cost, plus middleman fees, and charge you on par with if not more than how much you'd pay anyways from AmiAmi.
>Dealing with underage kids asking about Naruto and bleach figures
>Why does it cost so much
>Looking up skirts and laughing
I want to work in their financial department.
Doesn't matter if I'm surrounded in chinese plastic cheering me on during work.
If this significantly affects importing, that would be total bullshit. I want my delicious pre-owned box damage.
inb4 no more RSAL for America either.
If you're up for taking unwarranted verbal abuse from complete strangers on a daily basis, all the more power to you.
I wouldn't be able to handle that sort of work.
Has anyone ordered a mug from amiami? I'm assuming I'm going to get raped by shipping.
What if things end up like Working, Servant x Service or Yuushibu; the headaches might be worth the unexpected fun.
Not all of them are preorders as some of them are in transit but this is what I've got coming so far.
Exquisite taste. I can't wait for my Koto crab.
Either bite the pillow and know it will get delivered safely with EMS
Play Russian roulette with SAL or RSAL
Do you expect a mug to weigh more than 2kg? It could break though.
I'd laugh if they got someone from Japan to go there as the supervisor and brought Japan's work ethics with him.
>15 minute lunch break
>Salary dropped if you take sick days
>Must brown nose superiors
Obviously I'm making a lot of this up but you get the idea
I have and don't recall shipping being much more than it would have been if I hadn't gotten it.
Only thing I know about Japanese business is that they think it's rude if you use the reply function in an email client. They want you to start a new email every time.
Don't be surprised, my brother works for a nip company, his boss thinks he is the emperor until someone from the main company calls him, then the roles reverse...
But I honestly think they will bring people over, at least for the important roles.
I take it you have experience in customer service/retail? It would probably be worse in America where everyone is entitled.
I have a cousin who works as an investment banker, so he actually works like 7am to 7-9pm and doesn't have a proper lunch because there's not enough time. He once got sent to Japan to work and even he said it was hard work...
When it comes to business Japan is a funny yet efficient country.
And when they don't get treated like gods, there will be problems.
Honestly, I'd take the job just so I could talk about Chinese cartoons and plastic with my co-workers.
Maybe we could become friends.
Or maybe they'd have shit taste.
At least his superiors (the old guys who came directly from the main company) are like that, all the young nips and people hired for the branch company are pretty chill.
People working to the point that they die of exhaustion has become such a big problem, they're actually having to start a campaign to stop it.
The fact it got to this point is disconcerting.
I bought a Hidamari Sketch cup, and shipping was 880 yen to the UK which is about normal, if not less.
Every day until Laura's " -Bunny Style- " figure is up for preorders.
>Getting paid to bitch about your coworkers shit tastes
>Getting paid to discuss a certain scene and how it matches your fetishes
This is my dream job
I have never been to japan, but I have read enough media and scholar papers to know they have a shit ton of social problems. Personally I would never work for them, unless the positions was really good.
That is truly a dream, only Mikatan has been able to achieve it.
Pretty much how I view Japan, great place to visit, shithole to live in if you plan to work there.
We need to get this officially recognised as "Gamestop syndrome".
>From Nippon to EU
>From US to EU
From US to EU is even worse I think.
Did your mug survive?
Nippon-Yasan is legit right? Are their figurines authentic?
Really? Can someone else confirm?
yea /a/ has the worst collectors, all they do is bitch that something took an extra day to ship, than get pissy when things don't go the way they want them to.
They're all fake. I'm still in the process of getting my money back.
Oh fuck. Know anything about Toylet?
Excuse me, are there any life size figures that I can stick my dick into?
