Try paletweb for the PC version. If not then get the Xbox version or PSP version, essentially they are the same game except they are on a console.

Is it safe with net trading? You can be hacked or something like that I'm told...

I see lots of people recommending playasia.
Q: what about custom taxes? how much is it usually?
is it possible to request playasia to ship as a gift to avoid custom taxes?

Anyone knows any local store in Vancouver or Seattle?

It would depend on the weight of the product that you've ordered actually but so far my orders(mostly Japanese games) aren't taxed at all which is great!

Most shops won't do that.

I was wondering if anyone has had troubles with orders from Himeya lately? I had a preorder with them and the game has been out for 5 days, didn't get any update about it, they won't reply to my emails and the live support is always off. Starting to get really annoyed now...

Hello, I have a question regarding Himeyashop and their "Shipping country list" as I'm from a country not listed there.
Have anyone from a not listed country tried ordering from them? I'd like to know if there's a chance at all. Frankly, I don't understand why that list is so small. I have no troubles ordering things from Amazon, Rightstuf, Jlist...

They do not ship to alot of countries because those countries are either highly susceptible to lost packages or charge import taxes on goods. This is to avoid any dilemmas they may have from ignorant customers who claim bad service and spread bad news about the shop when really they have no liability.

After reading all the posts, Play-Asia seems the best choice. I'm not sure if Amazon.co.jp would send you video games (there might be some regional restrictions).
Moreover, You shouldn't pay custom taxes if your order costs less than $50.

Amazon JP will not ship anything that's not books or CD/DVDs outside Japan.

Play-Asia is overall good for the low shipping you can choose from, but the pre-order bonus is usually non-existance.

Himeya will get the pre-order for you guaranteed, but they're expensive.

HMV will give discount to games usually and ship to you (via EMS) using the exact shipping (instead of overcharging it like Himeya), but your chance of getting the pre-order bonus is 50%.

I recently registered for Paletweb, up until now I've only used Shop Himiya but lately I've been thinking it's time to try someplace new and that has cheaper prices but while I wait for my funds to be transferred to my paypal account I have a some questions about them.

Are they reliable?

How quick is their shipping methods?

Not directly, no.

But using Tenso.com it is possible - and with any luck I'll have Atelier Rorona (PS3) in my hands Monday. I ordered it from Amazon JP and had it shipped to my Japanese shipping address from Tenso, which then forwarded it to me using EMS for 2290 yen, and that order also includes the last volume of Macross Frontier (so 2 BD discs).

I've ordered once from them before, and that went without a hitch. The only problem was that their shipping rates are weight based, so they're not so great if you want to order many heavy items (like manga). For a few light items (like one or two DVD/BD/games) they should be way cheaper than Amazon JP.

While I've only tried them with two Amazon JP orders so far, I would imagine you can use them with any Japanese shop or auction site. The only problem what may then remain is payment (in case the shop only accepts Japanese credit cards). That's not an issue with Amazon JP of course.

PS. For orders above 2000 yen Amazon JP has free shipping, so you only pay Tenso for shipping.

Most, if not all, shipping from Japan to the rest of the world are weight-based. >_>

I would try that shop and all, but the middleman fee can get pretty expensive.


PS: Could've used HMV for the game + DVD combo and you wouldn't have to pay any middleman fee for that. (A DS game and a PSP game costed me a total EMS shipping of 1200 yen to North America.)
