But those were still hit by the bug. The only we saved anything is because the price must have dipped fairly considerably at some point, so much that even the application of sales tax couldn't erase the savings and we still came out positive. It was probably briefly 30% or something like that. So basically you may have saved ~¥200 but should have saved more than that. The reason I'm sure they were hit by the bug is because Amazon agreed with my claim and refunded me almost ¥300 each even though shipped cost was already ¥239 less than initial cost.
For the record, Railgun 7 and 8 have changed price since I ordered. I ordered at ¥5772 and ¥5770 respectively, but both if purchased today would be ¥5550. So I already know both will get hit with the bug for me.
Yeah, my copies of volumes 5 and 6 shipped for ¥5,533. That's also what Amazon.jp currently lists the prices for volume 7 and 8. However, I recorded a low price of ¥5,497 for volume 4 at one point, but was charged ¥5,533. But that's only an increase of 36 yen, not enough to just be the sales tax, so it must have dropped lower at some point. Ah, well, I guess I'll ask them to check volumes 5 and 6 when I e-mail them for the remaining items, unless they just do it for me this time.
