I'd had the Angel Beats! OST
on order since May 24th, initially for 3,150円. On Friday morning I got an email saying that the new price is 3,675円 and that it had been automatically removed from my order. (Note, both prices with tax, so really 3,000円 and 3,500円 or so.)
Is this Amazon's standard response when the manufacturer changes the MSRP? That's somewhat irksome if so, but I have not run into this until now. Really, I'd rather they just keep the order and check with me to verify I'm okay with the new price. Sure the email would be in Japanese but at least I'd have a chance of figuring it out. But they didn't.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't just me, or just int'l orders. The day they canceled the item, the OST suddenly shot up to #1 on the anime/game music bestseller rankings. Even ahead of the second K-ON!! OP/ED CDs, which seems somewhat unlikely. It's since dropped below them, but what that tells me is that there was a whole lot of reordering going on from other people who had it canceled.
I gave up on trying to tweak my orders in hopes of fitting it back in somewhere (not gonna cancel and reorder other things just for this), and I'm just going to see if I can get it from CDJapan instead. Hopefully they can add it to an order I have there that ships soon - it'd actually be cheaper that way, so it'd work out for me.
