View Full Version : Dreaming of Cherry Blossoms: April Imports
04-01-2009, 09:17 AM
It's spring, the sakura are blooming, and the $(US)/¥ exchange rate is closer to 1:100 than 1:90. Since life is so good, I figured I'd lead off this month:
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei 2
Atelier Vocal Historia [HQCD]
D.C.If Shirakawa Kotori Insert Song: Ai no Sora
K-on! Intro Theme: Cagayake! Girls [Limited Edition]
K-on! Outro Theme: Don't Say "Lazy" [Limited Edition]
Mahou Shojo Lyrical Nanoha Strikers Sound Stage Vocal Collection
Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai Theme song: Jewerly Tears
Place of Period (Nintendo DS soft "Higurashi no Naku Kuro ni (When They Cry) Kizuna Vol.2 Sou" Theme Song
Sora wo Miageru Shojo no Hitomi ni Uturu Sekai Inspired Album
Tears To Tiara Prologue CD: origo cunctarum reru
Tora Dora! Drama CD Vol.3
White Album Character Song 1 Morikawa Yuki
Clannad: After Story 5 LE
Ef: A Tale Of Melodies 5 LE
Kannagi 6 LE
Horo PVC (Spice and Wolf)
Nagi Swimsuit Ver. (Hayate no Gotoku)
Nendoroid Louise (Zero no Tsukaima)
I ended up deciding not to buy SoraAge. There just isn't enough new content to justify paying R2 prices. On the other hand, I'm considering using part of my tax refund to pick up AkaSaka.

So far I don't have much coming this month. Maybe I'll order some more stuff later.

Got a couple of things due (or at least released) this month ...
Clannad After Story Vol 5 LE
ToHeart2ad plus Vol 1 LE+
ToHeart2 Tamaki Kousaka Plain Clothes Version (1/7)
The first of these is already shipped and due to arrive tomorrow whilst the date I have for the last from the Vendor indicates it may scrape in at the end of the month.
edit: for the humour factor I've also ordered Training with Hinako (http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B0025MGLTA). And I've picked up the OP and ED CD's for K-ON! too.
