C85 Doropanda Tours Haul from Yahoo Japan Auctions

[Posted @ 10:46 PM]

Happy new year to you guys xD

A great!? start to year 2014 because I managed to secure Doropanda Tours' [どろぱんだTOURS] latest doujinshi in Comiket 85 by bleeding my wallet dry bidding on Yahoo Japan Auctions this afternoon. Initially, I bid ' しずなつ年末マンガ・2013' V14 for 1000 YEN, someone tried to bid 2 hours after that for 1600 YEN. But I outbid him back and at the last minute or less, someone else bid again D< and increased the price to 2500 YEN. Since I capped my bid at 3000 YEN, buyee auto outbid and top it to 2600 YEN.

Hence the result.

3 of them for a whooping 5200 YEN ;-; not including both domestic AND international shipping charges. It might total up to 7000 YEN :V

After I've successfully bid for them, guess what? I found out that Nagomi has all 3 of them above AND cheaper too. UGHHHH. I head-desked for a minute. Even though the items are listed as used but it's in perfect condition. 3150 + 1050 = 4200 YEN and I think shipping charges won't exceed 1000 YEN. Could had saved myself 2000 YEN there.

Anyways, if anyone of you are interested, just click on this link or go to the main page and search for 'どろぱんだTOURS'. 

But then I did checked Nagomi and Mandarake before bidding, it was AFTER I won the bids that I see them pop out from Nagomi D< Y U HURT ME SO.

What is done is done, didn't expect someone to increase the price to almost triple at the last 30 seconds *CURSES THE ASSHOLE* T_T

Oh well, *eats chocolate to calm down* let's await the packages, it might take a while since it's the new year holiday period for buyee and they only process the packages after 5th January.

Until then, enjoy ShizNat Webs/Mai-Multiverse's scanlation of Mai HiME Volume 12 - トリコ仕掛けと優しいケモノ [Toriko Shikake to Yasashii Kemono]. Yay!

A guide on purchasing doujinshi online

[Posted @ 3:00 PM]

As mentioned, I bought my Doropanda TOURS [どろぱんだTOURS] doujinshi from 3 places, Yahoo Japan Auction via buyee, Mandarake and Nagomi.

My first large purchase, thanks to shezaei-neko, was from an awesome Australian in Livejournal when I was studying there xD. So I guessed it was a one time thing.

Firstly, to buy anything online, you must have a credit card or debit card with VISA/MASTERCARD and it'll be easier if you used it to buy anything online before. It's important that your bank issuing the credit/debit card knows you're purchasing stuff online or allows it.Whenever I say debit card, I assume it has VISA/MASTERCARD, it's very vital.

I'll talk about Nagomi first since they have a roughly translated English page and they only accept payments via paypal for international buyers. The website is NOT SAFE FOR WORK, so beware!

They have kindly provided instructions on how to register and even list the conditions [perfect, good, bad] of the books they put online as they're mostly 'used'.

After you have registered and logged in, you add whatever you like by clicking on the '注文' to your cart. If there's no button, usually means it's out of stock, hence the X.

After sending your order, it might take a day or two for the person in charge to consolidate your items [check the stock and calculate your shipping charges] before sending you an email regarding paypal payment. Service is really fast for my purchase :)

Next up, Mandarake. Signing up at Mandarake is easy too since they have a full functional English website. Similarly to Nagomi, you add anything you like in your cart, send your order and they take up to 3 working days to check the stock and calculate your shipping charges before sending you an email with a link to make your payment.

Mandarake have several stores in Japan, hence it's better if you can purchase what you like from the same store or else you have to pay another shipping charge from another store. Oh Mandarake accepts credit/debit card and paypal but they only accept credit/debit card for 'adult' products. Please make sure your address name is similar to what is on the credit card for validation purposes, no using your parents', or friends' cards >.<

Lastly, to bid for items in Yahoo Japan Auction via buyee, you have to sign up for an account in buyee and to view 'adult' stuff in Yahoo Japan Auctions, a Japan yahoo account.

In my example, just type in 'どろぱんだTOURS' in the search bars and you get results as shown above. Sometimes you don't see results you see in YahooJA on the buyee page, so you can always copypaste the URL to buyee and then bid for it.

I'll recommend you to bid the highest amount you can afford to, in case you get outbid and then you don't have to keep bidding higher than the other person. Buyee will send an email to you if someone outbids you.

Everything is in English so it's very very easy, the payment modes are in credit/debit card and paypal. Before making any purchases, read their guide and FAQ section to make sure you understand the charges and shipping fees :)

Stuff on Yahoo Auctions Japan can be extremely marked up so you gotta be patient sometimes and wait for 'affordable' bids. Of course there are other ways of purchasing doujinshi but these are the ways I know besides getting someone in Japan to buy them for you xD which is the cheapest option IMO.

Any questions, just comment! I'll try to answer them.
