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.
>>
>>100914699
Why use them for cleaning your figures when you could use them to kill yourself instead?
>>
>>100914699
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.

>>100914699
Compressed air works perfectly fine, but I have seen some people worrying about the chemicals used.

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?

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Alternate colors given as a mass release, while original clothing being distributed as an exclusive/ mail order.

>>100918974
>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.
>>
>>100919661
You could still get the original version, no?
>>
>>100919682
No, even if you're brand new, you can easily get what Amico is from context.

Yes, at an aftermarket price I wasn't willing to pay, and usually opened with no promise of not already being soiled.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am now reflecting on how much money I wasted on EMS. I should start using SAL.
>>
>>100923665
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.
>>
>>100923447

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.
>>
>>100923888

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.
>>
>>100924009
I don't think either merchant will sell or ship 200,000 yen worth of merchandise packed into a small SAL Small Packet box.
>>
>>100924096
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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

His Answer:
>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.

>>
>>100936043

>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.
>>
>>100936413
But it still isn't financial support.
>>
>>100936413
Just point a time when western letters have saved a Japanese series. Just one.
>>
>>100936413
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.
>>
>>100936605
I don't know anything about letters, but western audiences saved The Big O.
>>
>>100931041
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.
>>
>>100936753
It wasn't just the audience. Cartoon Network produced the second season.
>>
>>100936605
>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.
>>
>>100936962
>moving the goalposts
>>
>>100936962
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.
>>
>>100937146
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.
>>
>>100937087
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.
>>
>>100937238
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.
>>
>>100937201
>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.

>>100937398

>>100937480

>>
>>100937203
>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.
>>
>>100931035
I'm confused after this. What is the purpose? Is it just reviews of headphones and art of girls wearing headphones?
>>
>>100937731
>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.

>>100937777
Apparently there's a whole market for books full of 2D girls with headphones. For the intersection of audiophile and otaku, I guess.
>>
>>100937719
>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.
>>
>>100937777
>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.
>>
>>100937777
>>100938023

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.
>>
>>100937353
>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.
>>
>>100938056
I didn't notice, because I wasn't talking about CR. That other guy was. Try to keep up, anon.
>>
>>100937731
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.
>>
>>100938197
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.
>>
>>100937731
Precure plushes
>>
>>100938427

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.

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)?

Depends on the exact item and your pricing scheme (high? low?) but here's the break down:

>eBay
- 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

>MFC
- 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.

Oh right, I forgot about that. I'd rather sell them to anons anyway.
>>100941515
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.
>>
>>100941993
God damn it anon, stop tempting me.
>>
>>100942000
Go for private/direct sales first (like in buyfag threads) if you are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with selling on eBay.
>>
>>100941968
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.

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.

Is a phrase never said before.

>>100927462
What figure comes with that body?
>>
>>100942635
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.
>>
>>100942647
But you got to admit they have an erotic and humiliating element to them or maybe I have just read too much porn.

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.

>>100940308
>Shinobou

There is only one good loli vampire and we all know who that is.

FINALLY.

>>100943521

Cool, I wish they were hiring, would be good to have an insider.
>>
>>100943521
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
>>
>>100943521
Does this mean cheaper shipping?
>>
>>100943521
>>100943589
>>100943604

So this brings over GSC/MF/Phat/Native and Gift products right?

When is Alter getting on this?

Well, nothing will change for me

>>100943685
Yes, but probably will be the same as Koto: Expect the items to be released a couple of months after the Japanese release.
>>
>>100943685
If you live in the continent, probably yes.
>>
>>100943752
The shipping from the US to other countries is damn expensive, even shipping to Canada is more expensive than shipping something from Japan
>>
>>100943640
I hope they have a storefront. I would definitely apply for a job there.
>>
>>100943640
I'd take an unpaid internship.

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!
>>
>>100943836
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?
>>
>>100943521
What will happen to Amiko?
>>
>>100943685
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.
>>
>>100943836
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.
>>
>>100943521
>>100943708
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.
>>
>>100943986
>Dealing with underage kids asking about Naruto and bleach figures

I want to work in their financial department.

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.
>>
>>100943986
What if things end up like Working, Servant x Service or Yuushibu; the headaches might be worth the unexpected fun.

Yup

Either bite the pillow and know it will get delivered safely with EMS

Play Russian roulette with SAL or RSAL

>>100944234
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.
>5am-7pm days
>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
>>
>>100944234
I have and don't recall shipping being much more than it would have been if I hadn't gotten it.
>>
>>100944305
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.
>>
>>100944305
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.
>>
>>100944219
I take it you have experience in customer service/retail? It would probably be worse in America where everyone is entitled.
>>
>>100944441
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...
>>
>>100944441
When it comes to business Japan is a funny yet efficient country.
>>
>>100944470
And when they don't get treated like gods, there will be problems.
>>
>>100944246
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.
>>
>>100944534
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.
>>
>>100944470
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.
>>
>>100944234
I bought a Hidamari Sketch cup, and shipping was 880 yen to the UK which is about normal, if not less.
