It's on the first post of the thread. A t-shirt, a mug, some posters, some cd jackets, some postcards.

As for the Memorial Box ... i have to say, that is a very tempting offer. Well worth considering for that price, which is quite abysmal for all that content. I wonder if it will get me past my stinginess ... sorely tempted.

I would say it would better to calculate your expenses. I did a price check with a proxy (Zipangu Treasures), then multiplied it with my local exchange rate, and it turned out to be a OMGWTFBBQ $273 in my local currency (at 1.52 exchange rate, costs 17567 yen in total), MINUS shipping. The service charge is pretty okay for a proxy but it is the exchange rate that screws me up. It used to be at 1.27 the last time I bought something from Japan, but in a week or so I was hoping it would drop to 1.48 and would be easier on my wallet.

Plus it is such a big box of CDs I am sure the customs would make as much noise as possible (I got hauled to court before for importing something which makes them suspect is hentai......) with regards to the import.....not sure if $300 is worth that risk.

EDIT : Wait, it says it will be launched in July. Is this pre-order the only chance to get the extras or can we wait until the launch date?

Yeah it's shopped, the original looked like this

Though for what is... I guess we just have to wait until the radio show.

Key's only going to make as many copies of the box as they're pre-orders.
This by noway means if you don't pre-order it, you won't be able to buy it.
You'll just have to pay much much more for it. For example the only reason I would bye it would be because I'd be able to sell it for 2x the price (or more) on Yahoo Auction.jp

Not sure if this has been mentioned here but..



They added "FES" to the title, just like Persona 3 FES.

Wouldn't the title "Memorial Box" suggest that Key is dead?

I would like to preorder this. I have never ordered anything from another country through another way. What is the easiest and/or cheapest way possible? I read the thread and saw that himeya was pricey compared to others. How do I order through a deputy, I have never done this before. I have used playasia before but not for something this large.

Also is it possible to get one if I know someone going to Japan during the summer? Will I have to preorder it and he could pick it up or would he have to find a copy and purchase it there?

I am sorry with all the questions since I am new with ordering things from another country.

The best way to pay the least for this kind of purchase is indeed the service of a deputy company (or if you are extra lucky, asking to an acquaintance that is over there already for quite some time).
For this, I believe reading the site would be enough, but perhaps proto can give more guidelines for that ordeal.

Yes, you will have to pre-order the game, before the 13th may. Key will not provide the games through shops and all. Instead, they are basically making as many boxes as the orders they received, then they will deliver the ordered games on July. Which means that if you don't order that, you will be forced to look for it in auction sites, which will be a serious chore (at least double price if you are "lucky").
It will be a rare item as they limited the number of copies (5 copies per person max).

and as far as the pre-ordering go, you will need to have a valid address upon preordering the said item. Fortunately, you only pay upon delivery, not as soon as you order it.
So, I believe that it will be a bit troublesome if your acquaintance isn't in Japan already.

It's pretty much straighforward. You can read a tutorial on how to place an order here. Other than that, on JAA's order page you only have to put the memorial box order URL provided in the first link, and input the cost of the item with shipping (15600 yens). You also have to have a Paypal account, since it is the only payment method they accept.

Shipping rates and weight?

For the purpose of calculating shipping costs, does anyone have an estimate for how much the Memorial Box would weigh? 5 lb (2.3 kg)? I was originally thinking of getting it from JAA, but I found that if it weighs any more than 1.0 kg, it will be $209 compared to the $208 that Himeya offers. Does Himeya's price include shipping or not? I'm excited; this will be my first VN! .

No, the Himeya price does not include shipping. You can expect the shipping to be at least $19, which is what they charge for single disks.

I wanna know what the extra items look like. The box set is an actually a deal if you narrow down the prices for brand new each. Sure if you go to your local bookoff or Mandarake you can get them 2nd hand and in very nice shape but for those who want them brand new.

I was expecting the boxset to be alot more.

As well there is support for Vista which I don't know if previous kanon and AIR releaes had.

I thought Na-Ga's design too looked like Haruhi. I hope she is different. Knowing Jun is in charge of story I think her story will be better.

I'm a moron, and I'm crossing my fingers that the last-minute order from JAA is going to go through

Himeya's is "sold out", apparently. So I have this one shot at getting it...

EDIT:
I got it.

Also, deadline is extended a week.

Question for evilr00t/Proto:
How long did it take for JAA to send you emails confirming that they were gonna buy the item for you?

For me it was 2-3 hours, but you also have to consider the time difference in Japan and more or less calculate if they are in working hours when you place the order.

First they will send you an invoice requiring payment for the item. If you are fast enough in paying for the service, they will proceed to buy your item and get back at you in less then 2 hours.

Thanks, Proto.
So JAA does all the registering and preordering stuff on Key's ordering site for you, right? And all you do is pay now and wait?
