Fangirl time, aka “YESASIA SELLS DOUJINSHI!”

May 20, 2008

Now, as I bet most people reading this blog don’t know, I’m a huge yaoi fan. xD Mostly Prince of Tennis yaoi, but I’m starting to get into other actual yaoi manga (as opposed to doujinshi/fanfics). My favorite Prince of Tennis doujinshi artist is Kodaka Kazuma, a professional yaoi mangaka that just happens to write PoT yaoi also. <33 I love her art, it’s really great when it’s serious and really adorable when it’s chibis. I love her stories too! She just so happens to write doujinshi for my FAVORITE pairing, the golden pair, and I own her golden pair anthology called Darling. I also own her hilarious comedy doujinshi Seishun gakuen Paradise, with lots of mini stories including yaoi sex ed, a school festival, evil!Fuji…
According to Wikipedia, Kodaka Kazuma’s manga Kizuna was one of the first and most popular yaoi manga. I still think it’s so cool that she does PoT doujinshi too~
So anyway! I was on Yesasia, looking for Kizuna volumes, because I’ve been thinking about reading it and apparently the English version is totally censored. My search was pretty unsuccessful (I only found Chinese versions), but it lead me to an amazing finding!
YESASIA SELLS DOUJINSHI!

New stuff, yay!

November 12, 2007

Well, I’m kinda procrastinating my homework right now, so I took the time to put together two orders, one on CDJapan and one on Yesasia…
So this is what I ended up getting:
Athena & Robikerottsu – Shouri no BIG WAVE!!! (limited edition)
Morning Musume – Mikan (normal edition)
Morning Musume – Mikan (limited edition A)
Morning Musume – Mikan (limited edition B)
Hello! Project 2007 Winter Live DVD Box (limited)
SKET DANCE volume 1
The Morning Musume. All Singles Complete Zen 35 Kyoku – 10th Anniversary (limited)
Megane’s – Manatsu no Megane’s (limited)
Kawamura Takashi – C’mon every burning (limited)

As soon as I heard about the Athena single, I knew I had to get it- I mean, it’s Risa and Aika and two H!P Kids…
I actually ended up getting all three versions of Mikan. I was looking on Yesasia, and for each of them it said the first press came with a randomly selected photocard. I love the photocards, so I figured it’s definitely worth it to buy all three, not to mention it’s my favorite Morning Musume song in a while, so…
And as for the box set, who could turn that down? I mean, it’s THREE concerts- the normal concert and the Wonderful Hearts/Elder Club concerts that are usually only released to the fanclub.
Then there’s SKET DANCE volume 1, one of the newest Shounen Jump series- I absolutely love it, so when I heard the first volume was out I had to buy it. xD
Since I bought the Momusu 10th anniversary CD, it only makes sense to buy the DVD that goes along with it- it includes all of their PVs, including an alternate version of Mikan and something to do with LOVE Machine…
Then there are the two PoT character singles. At first it started off with me looking for something cheap to randomly add to the CD Japan order (I put the Momusu DVD in a separate order on CD Japan because I didn’t want it to hold back the other stuff since it’s coming out later) because if I hit 5000 yen I’d get a 500 yen coupon, and I ended up with Manatsu no Megane’s. Then I found out about Taka’s new single, which actually includes a b-side (which is rare for PoT singles, usually it’s just the title track, an instrumental, and maybe a track with random talk from the seiyuu) and stuff, so…xD;

AND I also bought a couple of doujinshi yesterday…someone was selling Seishun Gakuen Paradise by Kodaka Kazuma for $2, so of course I bought that, and she was also selling some other doujinshi for cheap prices so I got two anthologies, Ground Smash 2 and Love Prince 4.

AND the girl who runs (well, at this point, it should be ‘ran’) doujinstar.com is selling all her Prince of Tennis stuff- all of it. SOOOO of course I had to get some, right?
New Season Set 1 Birthday Card Akutagawa Jirou
Eiji Pin
Bromide Set 2: Summertime/Oceanside: Golden Pair
Bromide Season 4: Sakura: Jirou
Bromide Season 5: Festival/Costume: Eiji
Bromide Season 5: Festival/Costume: Momo/Kaidou
Bromide Season 7: White Day Presents: Eiji
Bromide Season 8: School: Golden Pair
Bromide Season 10: Fashion Prince: Golden Pair
Databook 20.5
Love Prince 1 + 2

I ordered all this stuff a bit more than a week ago, but it’s not going to be shipped until she puts the last batch of her stuff up for sale- I’m waiting until the end just in case I want anything from the third batch of stuff. xD

EDIT: ooh hey even more stuff! don’t feel like making a new post, so…
AAND someone else on the garagesalejapan LJ community just put up some CDs including W’s two albums (the first press of the second one) and Berryz Koubou’s first two albums (again, the second album was the first press edition) so I just had to grab some of them. I ended up buying the two W albums and the second Berryz album~
Seriously, with shipping it ended up being $33.13. That’s basically how much one album is on Yesasia.
I’m having lots of fun with this Livejournal community…


WHEE FREE DOUJINSHI

September 29, 2007

xDD
The owner of doujinstar.com (which is down at the moment apparently) is giving away a bunch of doujinshi over on the Tenipuri community on Livejournal…2 per person, $4 for shipping. =3 Of course I immediately grabbed 2 MG doujinshi (Apple Rain and Strawberry Tart)…there was also the doujinshi Echizen Ryoma by Flower Place which I’ve been wanting for a bit (it’s the counterpart to the doujinshi Momoshiro Takeshi, which I already have), but it was already taken by the time I got there. Oh well.

They’re going to be shipped out on Monday, which means I should be able to get them when I come home next weekend. =3 YAAAAYY


Darling!

Ahaha, sales are very very good~

August 28, 2007

Lolz, so I posted about the doujinshi in my last post, but then I got an e-mail from the owner saying that 3 of them were sold out. Aww. The only one that wasn’t was Young Boy Illustrated- thankfully that was probably the one I wanted the most, lolz. xD
So, instead, she made some more offers…which were UBER UBER UBER CHEAP and so I ended up buying 15 DOUJINSHI for $48. And that’s including shipping.
O_______O
Honestly, I wasn’t going to spend that much, but I can’t turn down uber uber cheap prices!
First she offered some other Todoya doujinshi (Todoya is the group that did Young Boy Illustrated) for only $3 each…and then she said that there was a set of 5 Seigaku crack doujinshi which she was selling for $4 or $15 for the entire set…and then she had a Photobucket folder full of covers of unsorted doujinshi by MG, who did one of my favorite doujinshi…and they were TWO DOLLARS EACH
*diiieeessss*
Soo, if you haven’t figured out where this is going yet…
I ended up buying 3 of the Todoya doujinshi (in addition to Young Boy Illustrated), the entire 5-book set, and 6 MG doujinshi.
Oh dear lord. @______@

So that brings my doujinshi total up to 24. YAAAAYYYY

And now I know how to work PayPal! YAAAAAYYYY USEFUL INFORMATION FOR THE FUTURE

Here’s the list:

Young Boy Illustrated: $5.00
Let’s Return to the Main Subject: $3.00
Hot-Blooded Student Council President: $3.00
Miracle Essu!: $3.00
5 Book Set: $15.00
MG Book 23 (Graphite): $2.00
MG Book 24 (Honey Sweet): $2.00
MG Book 1 (Cool Prince of Tennis Story): $2.00
MG Book 7 (Orange Juice): $2.00
MG Book 10 (Thundering Sky): $2.00
MG Book 11 (Momo’s Day): $2.00
(Then shipping was $4, and it was an extra $3 to send the money through PayPal using a credit card…)

Let’s Return to the Main Subject is apparently Atobe x Momo x Ryoma, and apparently Atobe’s an uber dork, so I’m looking forward to reading this one…=P
Hot-Blooded Student Council President…ok, honestly I have no idea, but it looked amusing so I grabbed it. It’s one of the doujinshi on the site that didn’t have a description.
Miracle Essu! apparently has Inui trying to seduce Kaidou and Karupin x Everyone, among other things…
The 5-book set didn’t have any descriptions either, but it looked interesting enough. I had been thinking about it earlier, but I didn’t get them because I really didn’t know anything about them. Now, with the cheap price, I figured “why not?”
The MG books…well at first I just asked about all the images (5 of them) that had Eiji in them. =P Then it turned out 3 of them were out of stock (including the one I wanted the most, “Milk Caramel”, but whatever), but the owner gave me some recommendations (since she noticed my pattern xP), so I got three of those and then I saw one that looked like a cute Momo/Ryoma. =P So I ended up with 6 doujinshi for $2 each.

Kyaaa~ she’s sending them tomorrow, maybe maybe maybe if I’m really lucky they’ll get here before school starts! =D Considering there’s seriously no way they’ll come this week, maybe Monday! I don’t have to leave for school until late afternoon, so…


Ok, I placed the order from earlier.

August 28, 2007

And I bought the $20 copy of GIGS’ Flower ~Saki Midareshi Hana~. xDDD I couldn’t resist, ok? And to be honest, half the time my mom forgets to either ask me for the money or subtract it from my bank account, so…lolz I feel only a bit guilty. XD If she does ask, I have the money anyway, so…

And then I’m buying four doujinshi from doujinstar.com, I just e-mailed the owner of the site and I’m waiting for her to get back to me. I honestly have never done a purchase by e-mail or anything, but I can figure it out. xD It’s much better than paying the original prices. Much cheaper this way.

A~h, three crack doujinshi and one Golden Pair. =P
I’ve had my eye on the last one for a while now…it just looks uber amazing. xD The first one got me with “Oishi’s hair in the morning”, and I had been contemplating buying it for a while but I didn’t feel like paying $15 for it…with the sale I couldn’t resist. XP The second one had vampire Eiji on the cover…
and the third one is Golden Pair. I don’t think I really need to explain further.

Maybe the other stuff I bought earlier will come tomorrow. Then again I’ve been saying that for over a week now, and nothing yet…*sigh*
I don’t think that the stuff I just ordered will come before I leave for Nobles on Monday night, but it’s only 5-day boarding so I’ll get it the next weekend. =P Except for the Yesasia stuff, that always takes forever, so it’ll probably come by the weekend after.


Why is shipping so expensive? xD

August 27, 2007

I’m currently planning out yet another order…*sigh*
At the moment, this is what’s in it:
Tennis no Oujisama Zenkoku Taikai Hen (Prince of Tennis National Tournament) vol. 3
Morning Musume – SEXY 8 BEAT (limited edition)
Cap to Bin – Thank You!! (limited release)

I have to get the Nationals DVD. It’s uber expensive ($46.25 on Yesasia, $42.51 on CDJapan), but it’s Golden Pair angst and it’s my favorite episode in the entire OVA series, and maybe even the entire series in general, and it’s really cute and amazing, and…I mean, it starts off with lots of Eiji angsting and Golden Pair love, and then it turns into Eiji being uber cute and amazing and more Golden Pair love. <33333 The episode has its own folder in My Pictures for screenshots- seriously, not many episodes do. Only the Golden Pair flashback episode (freshman Eiji = THE CUTEST THING EVER), the chibi episodes, the Prince of Bowling/Billiards/Volleyball episodes, and episode 142 (which happens to be another cute Eiji episode, but it’s missing the angst that makes Zenkoku episode 4 so great), and this episode of course. This episode has everything from Eiji crying over Oishi to playing doubles in singles to self-rape
For the record, every time I watch this episode I’m in tears by the time Eiji confronts Oishi in the flashbacks…yes, I cry over a tennis anime. >____> Shut up.
I wanna make a couple of animated GIFs from that episode, but sadly, VirtualDub doesn’t work with .mp4 files. I dunno if I could do it with another program or what…
Lolz I’m gonna shut up about that episode now. I could probably rant on about it for like ever…
Then there’s episode 5 of the OVA, which is also on this DVD. Honestly, I couldn’t care less about that episode. It’s mostly filler anyway. Except for the scene where Kaidou and Yagyuu switch places and play as each other. That scene’s great, though it makes no sense whatsoever in the anime…

ANYWAY back on track.
Then there’s Cap to Bin’s Thank You!!. I didn’t think too much of the song when I first heard it, but I love it at the moment~ <33333 Not to mention Eiji’s like FRONT AND CENTER on the cover, and I’m planning on collecting all CDs involving Eiji anyway, so…
And then SEXY 8 BEAT. I’m still catching up with Morning Musume; I want their mini-album also but this order is really expensive already, and I have the money to buy it along with this stuff but my mom doesn’t like it if I spend more than ~$100 on one order so I’ll get it later.

I looked up all the items and added everything to my cart on both Yesasia and CD Japan…
CD Japan has cheaper prices for the items. It’s great- the Tenipuri DVD’s $46.25 on Yesasia but only $42.51 on CD Japan; SEXY 8 BEAT’s $34.75 on Yesasia but only $30.60 on CD Japan, and Thank You!! is $9.25 on Yesasia but only $6.32 on CD Japan.
However…shipping is uber expensive on CD Japan. DDDDD: It ends up being more expensive to buy it on CD Japan…
Maybe I’m just used to Yesasia’s free shipping. I dunno.
I apparently have a 500 yen coupon on CD Japan, and 200 frequent shopper points, so maybe if I use those, it’ll be a bit less expensive…still though, I feel like I’m being ripped off to pay so much just for shipping. D:
So, I think I’m just gonna use Yesasia for this…I’ll save the coupon and the frequent shopper points for stuff I can’t get on Yesasia (meaning, more PoT character singles)…

Lolz, and I’m also getting some doujinshi. Doujinstar.com is having a sale where everything’s $5, and shipping has a flat rate of $4 for more than 1 doujinshi…so I can’t help myself. =P
4 doujinshi for $24…yaaay~
