Heheh, don't use YesAsia. I use PlayAsia for some things (much nicer site design, better shipping options, smaller selection) and Amazon.co.jp for others.

No budget left for figurines ... but starting to keep an eye out for the second manga volume.

Well, Iím sad to say it but I never received my Horo! T_T

I guess according to Yesasia their supplier didnít carry enough copies of the poster to accommodate for the number of pre-orders they had. Yeah, you know what sucks even more; I was probably the first one to submit their pre-order. I ordered it immediately after it was available for per-order. Oh well, I got a game I probably wouldnít have bought, at least not for 100 bucks! But Iíve gotten over it already; this was not the first time Iíve had something like this happen. And now Iím ready to pre-order even more thing from much better merchants in Japan! In fact, Iím liking that World Destruction for my DS, and itís too late to pre-order Doki Doki Majo Shinpan Duo so Iíll have to hit up ebay and spend an additional 60 bucks for the limited edition, oh and then thereísÖ

Just for recommendations: I've *never* had a problem with cdjapan.co.jp or www.hlj.com for figure orders. Whereas, I've had over half the orders of any kind (books, CDs, figures) go unfulfilled with yesasia. They appear to keep no stock on hand, relying on the "just in time" inventory method -- which works poorly with low volume items. All I can say positively about them is that their book shipping rate is decent.

Iíve ordered from both cdjapan and hlj before, neither of which gave me any real problems. I had slight difficulties when I ordered my Horo figure from hlj, but itís kinda funny and kinda my fault seeing as I didnít read the site very well when signing up or I would have seen where I add my payment method. I ordered it while it was of limited quantity and soon after placing my order I was notified by them saying that my order was ready to ship and that they were waiting for payment. I wanted to pay using credit from the start but I didnít see the option to add one so they were expecting a money order. So I notified them asking them if I could change the payment method to credit. They reply back saying yeah, so I fill everything out and register one of my cards. Then they tell me my figure is on backorder and no longer in stock. So what happened to the one they said was ready to ship?! Whatever, I guess I didnít really want the figure anyway (lie, lie, lie!) The next day they e-mail me informing me that my order has been successfully shipped. Iím a very impatient guy so I paid for the fastest shipping available. And the next day I received my beloved Horo. So, uh anyway, I like those sites, and Iíll be using them along with Amazon Japan for future orders!

Thanks for the tip Vexx!

I second the fave one ^_^
and the last one (the NSFW one) maybe would look even cuter if the expression was different.. not a simple smile, but Horo's special teasing expression ^_^

That second one is awesome, the best of all the Horo figures in my opinion, I'll make sure to pick it up when it comes out. And the NSFW one is great too, I might even get that one as well. ^^

Yeah the second one really is nice. Haven't been one to get many figures, but that's a tempting one.

Yeah, I was never really into PVC figures much myself, in fact, the only one I have is a Horo one. But I do plan on buying one of the new ones. I really just don't have anywhere to put figures, I'd hate to buy them and just keep them sealed in boxes stuffed in a closet. That would be a waste, don't ya think?

That's what I do. No big deal, once I get my dream house up in the Rocky or Appalachian mountains I'll have plenty of space and privacy in which to display them.

But yeah, figs are kinda useless compared to other merch. But it's the thought that counts, right? Right?

Hey Kaguya (or anyone else who has them) is it possible to provide scans of the bonus illustrations which come with each DvD volume?

I'm talking about these:
Spoiler for Illustration:

Also, what size do they come in?

Those are on the BACK of the boxes. They're the same size as a DVD case.

They are the illustrations of a jigsaw puzzle.
They are printed on the box which stores a jigsaw puzzle, and the size is 135mmx190mm.
If the jigsaw puzzle is completed, it becomes twice the illustration size.
However, I am not still completing even one jigsaw puzzle.

Spoiler for jigsaw puzzle illustration:

Thanks for the scans, Kaguya =)

They're very very nice.

(On a side note, I've also PMed you regarding a translation issue)

From the preview of Dengeki Bunko Magazine Vol.3

2. The comic by Jyuu Ayakura and Keito Koume will appear in Dengeki Bunko Magazine extra issue (sale on September 27).

Does Jyuu Ayakura also create a comic?

That's all.
