I think Japan To Door will do it as well.

Those are some. I'm sure others have some to recommend as well. Those are all I can remember off the top of my head.

But, but, I already ordered the kotobukiya re-run horo! Can anyone tell me why the volks horo has 2 faces? If it's the cunning horo, I'll try to preorder it thru proxy right away, if not I'll just consider buying the moe horo.

It's rather amusing when someone references your website. Those currency exchange values are of course only valid on the day I posted, but the yen amounts are correct regardless.

I didn't feel comfortable linking to my own post, so I just typed out the names of the services as well as an additional one I'd found since that post.

In the end what worked out best for me (at the time) was Tokyo Hunter. However the reason for that was due to ordering multiple items, one of which could not be ordered via the other services. By ordering multiple items I was able to negotiate a better price (on each item ordered) which made it work out to similar costs as Crescent Shop, who I was going to use originally.

Tenso is neat, but Volks' website was in Japanese images, so I couldn't easily translate the form since it was not text. It was pointed out later though that you can signup on their English/American form, and use the login on their Japanese side as well. This makes Tenso a much easier option that originally thought and could save you a bunch of cash.

So with the extra information known to me now, I would use Tenso wherever possible.

Edit: Also, I really like my Koto Horo. Some don't like the style in which she's produced. But I rather enjoy it, she's very cute.

Extras of Dengekibunko magazine Vol.9 are a Horo's poster with 594x841 mm size, and a precedence limited version figure of Solidworks Collection 2.5.



Compared with other series of Solidworks Collection 2.5, I think that it is not more cute.
But Nora and Chloe will also appear, since many small figures are released.

Agreeing about the poster. That's Ayakura Juu at his best.

Wow, that poster is too good to be true, I would love to have that, very nice! And the figurine is so adorable, I want them both! ^_^

It sucks that stuff like this is so hard to obtain overseas. My rare anime goods collections is so small. T_T

It's not really that difficult to obtain. Shipping is the worst of it, normally.

I searched it.
It was a price of 7.24 USD at the following shop.
https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10093154
Since the weight is probably about 800g, about 20 USD of shipment costs are required. It is expensive.



A credit card is needed mostly at overseas shopping.
I do not know about a proxy buyer.

hi all. i've recently picked up this series and didn't realize that i was watching the second season until after i watched the first episode. so i download the entire first season and watched it all within a day haha. anyways i fell in love with this series and wanted to buy some if its merchandise. i've looked through their main site

http://www.spicy-wolf.com/goods/character.html

and found a treasure box full. however i couldn't seem to find any of those products anywhere on the internet that would ship to Canada. my question is, does anyone know any place or site that stock these items and are shipping worldwide?

Lots of places ship worldwide, but shipping isn't cheap no matter where you live. YesAsia is a good place to start, as is the abovementioned sites (1999 and HobbylinkJapan, etc.).

Swag (things like coffee mugs, alarm clocks, etc) are *incredibly* difficult to acquire from outside Japan. You need to strike almost on the day of release and have a third party agent who actually sends people into the chaos of Akihabara to get them for you. Otherwise, you're looking at haunting e-bay for a lucky hit from someone reselling the items.

Figures, CDs, and DVDs - fortunately - are pretty easy to pre-order and you only have to haunt the pre-order sections of a few sites for those.

Not trying to be depressing... but it is a chase for pop items that requires diligence.

Yeah, those items are nearly a year old now, if not older. It's going to really hard to find them for sale.

DS game "Spice and Wolf Umi o wataru kaze (The wind which crosses the sea)" is released on September 17.


The outline is as follows.
Spoiler for outline:
All main characters appear. (except for Chloe)
Even Amati meets again with them in Renos.
In this system, it is possible that the player even borrows money.

The bonus goods for every store for DS game were announced.
http://d-game.dengeki.com/spice-wolf...uten_shop.html

The shepherd's Horo was good, but because I wanted the telephone card which is having twin tail Horo illustration, I pre-ordered it at sofmap.

It seems that the container box of this DS game is huge.

Furthermore, it is said that the weight is about 1 kg.

It seems that they are not taking shipping charges into consideration.
