View Full Version : November misgivings: the import buying thread for 11/2008
11-02-2008, 12:12 PM
That is, if anyone is still buying R2 (Jp) and R3 stuff, given all the expressions of woe in the currency exchange thread (http://www.mania.com/aodvb/showthread.php?t=86920).
Oblivious to the shifting winds of fortune I sail on :sweat: :
Kanokon 6 (ltd ed) (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=ZMBZ-4056)
Natsume Yujin Cho 2 (1rst press) (http://www.hmv.co.jp/product/detail/2784903)
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 3 (ltd ed) (http://www.hmv.co.jp/product/detail/2759754)
Shojo Sect: Innocent Lovers 3 (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=DMLK-7748)
Strike Witches 3 (ltd ed) (http://www.hmv.co.jp/product/detail/2752990)
Also getting an assortment of chara goods from Aria, Hayate no Gotoku, and Maria-mite, plus calendars for Kanokon, Kara no Kyokai, and Okami to Koshinryo. Don't have any music ordered yet, but it's still early in the month. :devil:
It seems that the 2nd half of the Utena re-master set has been delayed (haven't tried translating the explanation), so at least I don't have to sweat getting that this month.

I am considering buying Nogizaka v.3, but I might just combine it with my December order, since I have nothing else that I want to buy this month.
But I also might just suspend R2 purchases for the foreseeable future. Bad exchange rate and bad economy = reining in spending.

Oblivious to the shifting winds of fortune I sail on.
Me too. It's not like I want to spend my money on anything else anyway. The exchange rate is somewhat bad at the moment, but my job is fairly insulated from the economic problems of the USA so it's not affecting me personally (yet). I'll probably hold off on buying new CDs and my annual Christmas present from YAJ though.

It may seem like a lot but most of the purchases are calendars. If the yen/USD exchange rate was better I might have considered picking up the first LE volume of Kannagi.

I'm not placing anymore orders for R2J stuff because of the exchange rate, except the outstanding orders for Soul Eater 4,7,10 first printings, because I want a nice collection of the goodies that come with them. I'd like to be able to afford the final volume of Kaiba somewhere down the line as well, but that's not looking likely.
It's dawned on me that the price I preordered the Soul Eater volumes isn't in Pound Sterling, so the price I preordered at is going to be a lot less than what I'll end up paying for them, I just hope it isn't going to be TOO painful...
11-24-2008, 07:42 PM
I'm soldiering on with series I am already collecting, but not really looking to pick up many new series that are starting the next month or two until/unless the exchange rate improves slightly:
Mai-ZHime S-Ifr v3
Gundam 00 v5 BD
Code Geass v4 BD
Code Geass R2 v4 BD
Macross F v4 BD
Real Drive Box 2
Ikki Tousen GG v3
Toshokan Senso v5
Sousei no Aquarion movie BD

I ordered only one DVD this month because of the exchange rate being a little higher than normal. What I ordered was:
