Man, YesAsia owns you. They only say "free shipping" but it's really included into the product. YesAsia does some overcharging ownage on your wallet.

I can back it up too if anyone insists with comparisons, but I doubt there will be dissenters.

Well the prices seem to be about the same as Playasia and much much lower than HimeyaShop which would probably have already declared bankruptcy were they not apparently the only English (as in the webpages language) H-Game selling website. I actually got my two SRW W copies for free from YesAsia it would seem since it never showed up on my credit cared bill and I have the games in my room as I write this. I completely disagree that they overcharge though, they charge slightly less than retail outlets and its quiet affordable compared to the likes of HimeyaShop and Getchu.

Plus even if shipping is slightly built into the price, that would make the actual products prices far cheaper than retail and still cheaper than the USD $19.99 S&H Standard shipping from HimeyaShop, and impossibly cheaper than the USD $75.00 Expedited FedEX option, which is completely outrageous.

I'd like to grab the PC version of CLANNAD, but everywhere I look either has only the PS2 release or the PC version is $80+. Is my wallet doomed to raepage?
I've checked the three sites recently discussed, and I'd like to avoid Akibado if possible.
I've never imported anything before and I'd rather not get screwed.

Yep, rapage. Unless you use ebay your going to get gouged. Yet low and behold. http://www.getchu.com/soft.phtml?id=81021 67.99 USD and a mail order deal for $USD 47.33. I don't know what they charge for S&H, but I checked Himeyashop and they are gouging again at USD $80.00.

Do they ship outside Japan? I'm looking, but I'm not seeing any indication that they do. They seem to want me to register before I can purchase, and there's no option for foreign addresses. I could just be missing it and/or an idiot, though.

Unhappy Someone help I am desperate to find Heroine Anthem 1 & 2

Been looking for days and days but it just seems impossible to do. I have found a hell lot of listing for these games on http://www.tw.ebay.com/ and http://tw.auctions.yahoo.com/ but like Yahoo auctions japan, the only way to get stuff from there is contact an errand service that will get the stuff for you.

But I don't think any errand services exists in Taiwan or China, so the I thought about play-asia and emailed them about that but I have not received any answer yet, but I don't think they will be able to get them for me. yesasia.com has the taiwanese versions listed on there, but they are all sold out of it.

Oh I see that both a chinese and Taiwanese verion has been released. I think the chinese version is called. Heroine Anthem: The Elect of Wassernixie


So far I could make out 3 different publisher for those games (Heroine Anthem 1 and 2)

Chinese publisher for Heroine Anthem 1 & 2:

Winking Entertainment: http://www.winkingworks.com/ (I am pretty sure Winking Entertainment is the chinese publisher for both games)

And the taiwanese publishers are:

Heroine Anthem 1 (Third Wave) (The website is dead)

and

Heroine Anthem 2 (Soft World) sg.soft-world.com/main/index02.htm

I am not sure about all this though.


The only official website for that first game that I could find that still works is:

http://www.winkingworks.com/ha/


The games are spelled like that in Taiwanese (or is it simplified chinese?):

Heroine Anthem: The Elect of Wassernixie 聖女之歌 人魚的新娘

Heroine Anthem 2: The Angel of Sarem 聖女之歌2 撒雷母天使


Besides all that info, I don't know where to look or what to do to get this game.

So what should I do? I don't care if I get the taiwanese or chinese version of those games, I just want the games...

So anyone think they could give me a hand or a tip on to how to get these games?

Quite a late response but I almost never check here so ^^;

Getchu does not ship to addresses outside of Japan, so just like Amazon.co.jp, all you can do is stare at those prices and drool.

You can try Paletweb, since they offer the cheapest prices I know around.

If I were you though, I'd get the PS2 version of CLANNAD, since the game is only 100 times better with voice.

Or you can go for the unofficial guide to "voice patching" your PC version of CLANNAD (which I did and it worked perfectly), but you will still need to have a PS2 version of the game in order to extract the necessary files.

I found some japanese games here: http://demo.arcadebuilder.net/index....rch&q=japanese
You can play them online and then buy the full version if you like them.

I thought Amazon.co.jp ships internationally, it just costs an arm and a leg?

Anyway, I'm really looking to buy Japanese visual novels (Higurashi, Tsukihime, Fate, etc), but I'm wondering, can you buy these games in Dealer's Rooms at conventions like Otakon? Are there any stores in the Japanese areas of towns like New York City or San Francisco that sell doujin/visual novel works? I travel around the country, so I figure if so, I can maybe save on shipping instead of buying online.

Amazon.jp will ship books or music or movies, but they refuse to ship any type of game/software- all ages or not.

As for finding such things at Conventions, there's a good chance that the odd booth will have a copy of popular, commercially available games such as FSN or Kanon, but most likely they'll price it much higher than normal.

The previous question was where he could find another site that sells Ero-games besides www.Himeya.shop. And www.play.asia.com definitely doesn't have the answer to his question.

To answer his question: Sorry guy Himeyashop.com is like your best bet for Ero-games especially with their good selection of them and reliability, you just have to grin and bear it with their prices.
