Canno's 3P anthology and Kyou mo hitotsu yane no shita 2 are digital only so they're lost.
Another weak month with only 13 volumes. This year is really bad in terms of quantity.

Then the difficult part.
>百合墓荒らし
It seems ok but there is something blocking me, I don't know if it's the title, the art or the "tragedy" part. There are also no reviews so it's difficult to judge.
>マルジナルテイラ
I still don't know if picking it up or not, I tried to read some chapters but I couldn't find it interesting. I see it's fully scanlated, did anyone read it and recommends it?
>バニーズクエスト
The first two chapters were in YH and I didn't see anything yuri in it.
>ハッピーアワーガールズ
Never heard it before but it's already the 3rd volume. I've looked up despite I dislike alcohol and I've found the first three chapters and the last page of every chapter looks gay, then there is a jump to the second to last chapter and I don't see any development so I don't know what to do.
>ULTIMATE-MAMA
I didn't find any chapter but only some pages and together with the description it looks like very dumb fanservice.
>JKレーサーはレスキュー隊員のお姉さんにメロメロなので時速300キロで告白します
The title may say enough already but I didn't find a single line about the plot.

Does anyone know what happened with 両片想いな双子姉妹? It should be completed since months but there is still no second volume, not even digital only.

ULTIMATE-MAMA


Canno's anthology isn't digital only, you just need to buy it from a bookstore instead of amazon. 今日もひとつ屋根の下~おかわり~ being digital only really stings though. Ultimate mama is from an OG yuri author so I'm just diving in blind. バニーズクエスト looks like it may be cute, I'm sad I missed it in my order so I may grab it later. ハッピーアワーガールズ looks like every other alcohol yuri series which stagnates the development and talks about alcohol the entire time which is usually too boring.

>はなものがたり1
Old grandma yuri is also missing. I didn't buy it yet but I'm keeping an eye on it.
>>
>>3767879
>Canno's anthology isn't digital only
It's always the same story, you have to pay a forwarder's fee, double shipment and japanese VAT. The fact a printed edition already exists is even more infuriating, why don't put it on amazon too? Obviously japanese authors and publishers don't care about us abroad but wouldn't amazon be a better choice for japanese people too since they can use prime to have free shipping?

>Ultimate mama is from an OG yuri author
I looked it up and didn't find anything worth, though it's somehow reassuring they did yuri before, I guess I can try it.

Dropped the moment it's said she had a husband.

Happened both June and July, and now I fear for my August's order that I should receive tomorrow. I thought about switching to cdjapan but I had two packages this month from FedEx and I had trouble with custom both time, I still have to pay one of them because the link they gave me doesn't work.
They're also very annoying saying they want us to send back the damaged items when they make us pay for the shipment. I'm not gonna pay a 50 € international shipment to have a 15 € refund, are they for real?

Damn, guess I was lucky with my last order as only two out of 13 obis got damaged, but not quite this bad. If the obi isn't anything special just remove all of them now and put them in the book cover flap to get a unified look on the shelf.
>>
>>3772448
Received my order and there was only one obi slightly bended but fortunately not ripped, which is a miracle because there was a lot of space on the sides in the box and the paper they put in won't do shit.

While organizing the volumes in my excel file I noticed Kirara increased the price by 30 yen reaching 880 when it was 819 just a few years ago. Tsukiatte agete mo ii ka na also increased from 591 to 650.

Hogushite, Yui-san. was a great read, there is gay stuff in every chapter, the best Kirara's yonkoma in a while. But the two Yaya, the first one in particular, are painful to watch, it's too cruel.
That obi >>3772407 wouldn't be a heavy loss though since on one of the flaps there is an advertisement for generic hetshit romcom #9874579 from the same author. Publishers really can't understand that people reading yuri are not interested in that shit.

KyoKano 2 and Keiyaku shimai 1 were great too. I hope Hijiki will succeed to prove yuri can sell.

わたしたちの終わりと is full of het rape. I don't know what kind of mental illness people has to write this disgusting shit in a story that would have otherwise been good. And fuck whoever tried to sell this shit as yuri without any kind of warning.

You mean the physical pages, or just DRM on an ebook? Surely they can't seriously be putting effort into physical DRM when their actual work has no effort put into it.

I bought it and it is already shipping so I can't cancel now. I read the cover story on dynasty and thought the rest would be safe. Hate when they put garbage in misleadingly themed anthologies like this.
>>
>>3774014
The physical page has a really high contrast, if you try scanning them it just comes out all washed out and looks like ass. From what I understand that's the only negative of the review. I really want to support the author but I also don't want something that looks like ass thanks to 7seas.

If only I saw this earlier but it wasn't there when I added the volume to my wishlist.

I don't know if it's the translator "revising" things they didn't like like localizers do for official censored translations or if the text has been edited for the release of the volume but in this page where she says "they'd take you away from me" in the volume says "they'd rape you" and there I already thought something was wrong because why the fuck would you start talking about rape.

It's not said in the review but there is also a part with a dream where she is with a man, then she falls, dark panels and then she was running though the city without her skirt. I didn't want to think disgusting things so I dismissed it as just sequences of a dream without sense, but knowing that there is again rape later she was probably dreaming about stuff happened previously in her life. So the volume is filled up with this shit.

Anyone else can't really enjoy reading Tsumugu otome?
Despide the confession at the end of the 3rd volume and they actually started dating in the latest chapter on the magazine, I see no chance for a happy end except what MC said in this volume: to bring her to the future but that would mean abandoning her family which is something Japan doesn't like.
But even if the main couple will get their happy end, what about every other lesbian (which is basically every female character other than the mothers)? Will they be left in the past, enable to stay with the girl they love and having to marry men?
In the 3rd volume we can already see at least two graduating senpai that had to break up with their imouto because they have to marry men. I can't enjoy this.
This time I have to agree with the double suicide anon, shinjuu was actually mentioned in the volume, saying there were couple that preferred to die together rather than be separated and it seems to be the only possible solution other than bringing everyone in the future including the senpai who just graduated. Better dead with the person you love than living a miserable life without the person you love and marry a man.
Also I can't stand the author's pervertness. I still can't forget MC showing her panties to a man in the first chapter and now he showed het porn to the girls and then that whole bloomers chapter and he even goes out of his way to explain that bloomers weren't used at that time but he wanted to draw them so fuck historical accuracy. He could've said the same for the political marriages but nope, those must be accurated.

I almost never buy kirara series until they're finished and proven good. Exceptions are if the author is a known yurifag or if there's an overwhelmingly clear direction from the beginning. Just too many kirara series to deal with without doing this since there are so many stronger yuri contenders for my time and money lately. Historical settings are always a potential red flag, add in an unknown author and (at the time of v1) uncompelling sample chapters meant I waited and watched to see if I was proven wrong. This time it looks like this series just isn't for you, or for me, sadly.

>>3777063
If I had to check pixiv or past works of every author I'd end up with nothing to read since even lesbians like Takeno Saku draw futashit of yuri couples.
I regularly check Kirara's raws every month so if anything bad happens I'll know but I seriously doubt the editor would allow something like that after they went out of their way to promote the series as yuri.

I don't know about ほうかご再テンセイ! 1, is there anything yuri in it other than the side couple? I don't know if it's a good deal to lose Hero-san and get this one instead.

It was posted on /u/ before, I don't remember if it was in the RR thread, and it had people pointing out the het so I avoided it immediately when I saw it listed. It also has het in the chapters on Comic Walker, you must be more careful instead of blindly trust yurinavi.

A lot of the sex isn't just lovey dovey, but most pairs are very in to each other by the end. For example, the pair in the first post continue to bicker during the sex, but they actually really love each other and just won't admit it.

The story that goes with the cover probably matches what you want, but even that has a confession.

Kodama Naoko needs to fuck off with her bislut shit. Her characters don't have a little bit of sense. The editor is a fucking retard.
The first chapter also sucks. I don't care about the "twist" at the end when you made me read a whole chapter of men and het shenanigans.
And the stremers' one was bad in general.
The other chapters were ok but this is my problem with anthologies and collections of stories, one bad story is enough to leave a bad taste in my mouth, even if the other chapters are good. Why do I have to read about men and het when I'm reading yuri? Why can't publishers understand such a simple thing?

For Amazon: Anyone know if giftwrap or paying extra for priority shipping means better packaging?

Seeing my shit get scuffed make me want to pay extra for nice corners. Feel free to recommend another bookstore you know has good packaging to the US. I know CD Japan and Kinokuniya are good about it, haven't tried Honto since they partnered with Buyee and I have no idea if Playasia can be trusted either.
>>
>>3798290
If it is anything like amazon's gift wrap I've tried locally then they just put the item in a drawstring bag, but maybe it is different for large amounts of books. If it is cheap it can't hurt to try it once. Forwarding a box from honto seems like the next best option if I was going to try it since they always used to pack very thoroughly. God do I miss spending 3000 yen for SAL on huge box of yuri. I wouldn't use buyee to forward it unless you are lazy though, their fees are garbage. CDJapan was good at packing as well but I think I stopped when shipping prices got crazy. All shipping prices suck now though so even amazon's flat rates suck now. Personally I prefer just spending more to import from bookstores since I get extras that way, makes the additional money i spend on yuri well worth the trouble.

Another poor month, again.

I'm going to skip ビブリオフィリアの乙女たち.

>囿者は懼れず(1)
This wasn't on any site but it's from the author of Seifuku no vampiress road and iirc it's supposed to be hetbait.
>随伴の一人、メイとは少し百合チックなシーンも
There is only the first chapter online without any yuri, did anyone read it?

>春綴る、桜咲くこの部屋で(2)
I didn't buy the first one because I don't expect anything from a series where the couple is already broken since the beginning. Since it's over did anyone read it and can spoil the end? Like, did she come back to life or keep living as a ghost or something that allow them to stay together?

>アルマギア (1)
I have no idea what this is, there are only five chapters online but they're only a few pages, the other girl showed up only the third chapter but they didn't even interact yet.

>アイの歌声を聴かせて(3)
Same here, what is this? I've tried to google it but only an anime movie from last year showed up, it seems to be the comicalization of the movie but the title doesn't appear in the archive so I find it weird nobody talked about it if it was yuri.

>>3808717

It's only b&w while the chapter version is in color. That alone is reason to skip it.

>>3808850
To be fair the first chapter of Vampiress wasn't promising either with all those scenes between the MC and that guy, but we all know how it turned out.

>>3810428
Well, I'm interested in yuri so if it is I'll get it but I have no info so I learnt to avoid stuff that I'm not 100% sure of.
Colours turned into B&W suck but Otome no teikoku does the same thing and I'm not going to drop it for that.

This thread looks kind of dead by the way, where are all the buyfags? New releases don't get discussed at all.

Chisako has always drawn nothing but bishit and doesn't deserve anything since she laughed about how much she loves to put men in "yuri" in that series about dialects. And the series after that was about a woman searching for a husband. The only good thing she wrote was that one OLxJK one-shot but she managed to put bisluttism in that tank too.
But I admit I don't know anything about this new series, did she finally find an editor that forbid her to put het in it or is it the usual bislut stuff?

I don't recall any male characters.

>>3811242
So they are around 30 but don't have a lover and don't talk about wanting a boyfriend / wanting to get married / wanting to have children? If that's the case I may try the first volume but there really mustn't be any red flag in it.

In the ura-cover of the first volume there is a time skip and they are 27 (so one year before of this new series), they didn't meet for a while and they thought the twintails girl was getting married (there was where I dropped it).
Now I'm back at being unsure if getting it or not. That series had a lot of het later in the story.
The chapters on ComicWalker are good enough, everybody seems gay and Chisako's art is beautiful but I've been burn too many times I can't trust anybody anymore and I'm always afraid of surprise het out of nowhere and endings without any commitment.

Mine is probably not going to get to me for another month but the author is a relentless yurifag who posts yuri doodles literally every day so she's a cool person to support.

>>3808850
That's an understatement.

>>3811313
Chisako burned me too many times to consider buying this even if it turns out to be good. I definitely would wait until it was over before considering it.

>>3810626
>where are all the buyfags
There are very few people who buy jp yuri here and they probably just work all the time to afford their yuri addiction like I do.

>>3811543
A worthy series to do it for at least. I only buy magazines when they come with yuri series bonuses but it is always impossible to keep track of when they include those since authors I follow never mention them.
>>
>>3811543
Can't you just wait for the tank? They aren't going to know for which series you are buying it so it's not like you're helping to keep it afloat, unless they have a popularity survey and you answer it.

>>3811624
>the author is a relentless yurifag
Oh, I know, I have her other stuff, I just don't feel like reading a story knowing since the beginning that they won't be together and it's just the MC being miserable for being left alone. I just want them to be together in the end, doesn't matter how stupid it sounds like ghost, resurrection or suicide.

Amazon sent my order in a fucking paper bag, 7 volumes out of 15 damaged, not only the obi but the volumes themselves, full of marks because they received god only knows how many hits.
I've immediately written to Amazon and they answered with the usual "we're working on it, thank you for your feedback" and refunded the whole order. I didn't ask for it, they keep refunding stuff but I feel like I'm stealing and it doesn't resolve the problem which is I have damaged books on my shelf.
https://twitter.com/search?q=amazon%20紙袋&src=typed_query
Japan is complaining too, let's hope they'll drop this muh-eco bag. The books are just thrown inside without any order, how they hell can they think this is ok? To be shipped abroad even.
>>
>>3817019
You've convinced me. My next order will be from cdjapan.
>>
>>3817809
Well, this month cdjapan is a forced choice because Amazon still has SekaOpa blocked for no reason so cdjapan is the only way to get it without using a forwarder.
The problem is the custom taxes not included. This summer FedEx forced me to pay cash on delivery and after a couple of months sent me a letter saying I didn't pay it, I had to call them (call with a cost) to tell them I already paid. Also Amazon makes me pay only my country's VAT, while when it's shipped from other shops other than the VAT they charge me a random 15 € for the "custom service".
>>
>>3817812
That certainly sounds like a pain. Thankfully, no VAT where I live, so it's a little easier for me to switch.

Bunnie's Quest is ending soon. I saw it coming, but I thought it was a well done manga and deserved a better fate. It's also killing me because the author has now deleted everything on their pixiv and is closing their fanbox soon as well. I hope they don't completely disappear.

Pointless side note, but I saw that Tozaki Ei released a joint doujin with Fumio Aya, so I checked their twitter for the first time in a while to find it updated with 漫画お休み中. Being a buyfag feels pretty pointless a lot of the time.

Doesn't really help. What are these activities exactly? Because if it's organizing protests and such it sounds like a waste of money. In the end is their diet to decide if they'll change the constitution or not, as long as they'll have dinosaurs in their diet nothing will change.

Btw, I know nothing about politics and these alphabet flags agenda, but I didn't remember any orange in the lesbian flag, only various shades of pink so I looked it up.

I ordered it regardless but it doesn't look like it has any of the special touches I was expecting. YRYR, pripri, yagakimi, etc artbooks had way more flourishes in the design of the book for less, and better store bonuses by far. Since this is just a single book I'd expect special binding and paper like the Flowers book but I guess oversized hardcovers are just going to be this price now. Also all the stores only have a clearfile with the same exact art as the cover as a bonus, huge wasted opportunity.

I know that FUZ has better quality than other online stores for the Kirara magazines, but I'm not seeing any difference for the couple volumes of tank releases I checked. Possible I'm just doing it wrong, of course.

I'll probably still prefer buying from them since I like Houbunsha more than I like amazon etc, but in case you were wondering.
>>
>>3828882
There are probably stronger stipulations from publishers to keep volume releases consistent across the various stores compared to magazines. I just checked a FUZ rip of an Urara Meirochou volume against a Bookwalker rip and they're pixel for pixel identical, even the cover page. They only differ in filenames and that the FUZ rip is missing all the jpeg metadata like dpi, author, creation software, etc. I wouldn't expect to see a different result if I checked another series.
>>
>>3828882
The best quality are the chapter releases for normal 4koma where the columns are split up.
Ripping and recombining is a bit of work but it's worth it compared to how terrible the normal tankobon releases are.
>>
>>3828912
The metadata should be available from FUZ. If it's removed then it's the fault of the ripper.
>>
>>3828882
For me it's a matter of price. On FUZ a tankobon will cost me 880 yen while on BW I pay 800 since tax isn't applied with 12-23% coin back so the same tankobon only costs 616 yen or 70% of the price.
For sales it can even get lower due to the coin back campaigns.

>>3829007
Fair point. One thing that does look like a decent deal on FUZ is the monthly subscriptions. That price isn't bad if you are reading the main four that we tend to care about here.

As a side note, I noticed FUZ has a エール feature that seems to work like super chats. Some authors have an extra you can view if you use it, which are single images from the couple I tried. Note that it doesn't seem to let you view more than once, but it is pretty easy to grab the images with standard browser devtools at the moment.
>>

>That price isn't bad if you are reading the main four that we tend to care about here.
Manga Time, Manga Time Original and Manga Home still have yuri and cute girls stuff. The main problem is that they have a lower turnover rate than the Kirara family so there's less new series to catch onto.
Weekly Manga Times is a different breed of magazine and also available on Bookwalker on the same day and in the same quality (except it doesn't have a digital table of contents for some reason).
>>
Which online store has HQ ebooks? All manga ebooks on Amazon are terribly compressed jpg and sometimes in very low res. I heard Honto has HQ (png instead jpg) ebooks. Is that true?
>>
>>3830603
A lot of the quality depends on the publisher.
Amazon does cap the resolution at x1920 but that's not relevant when the original is x1200.
Old releases will also get stuck in lower quality even when the publisher switched to higher resolutions with newer releases.
There's also a disparity between magazines and tankobons. For some publishers the tankobon have better quality but in a few cases the magazines are better.
See the posts above for the special case of Houbunsha's 4koma series.

If you care about ripping your ebooks then Kobo is an easy option since there's publicly available tools.
Otherwise Bookwalker is going to give the same quality at a lower price.

Honto had identical images to amazon, when I still had a working ripper anyway.

cdjapan added 佐久間巡査と花岡巡査は付き合いはじめた but Vampeerz is out of stock. And some books will take 1-3 weeks to ship.
But the real problem is the shipping fee. I tried to place the same order on Amazon: Amazon is 4289 yen, cdjapan is 8591 yen (FedEx, DHL is even more expensive) it's double the price...
I have no other choice to get SekaOpa but cdjapan is not really a valid alternative. I'll have to go back to Amazon next month but before of placing the order I'll try to mail them to tell them to avoid the paper bag. I see japanese people are still posting damaged goods on twitter >>3817019 and the Amazon account keeps replying to say they will work on it but it's more than one month already and they keep sending those paper bags, even for items made of glass and pc parts, they're crazy.

how would one go about getting their grubby hands on these? just use one of the proxies from the buyfag.moe guide?
>>
>>3831047
SHWD is a full ongoing serialization in a magazine, english release would be the translated copy of the magazine's released volumes. TsukuTabe charity items can be bought from kadokawa's store (the buttons next to the items bring you to that store) so you'd just give that store link for the item you want to the proxy and they order if for you. Then you would have to pay additional fees and international shipping to get it delivered to you. I rarely ever ship single items so I'm not sure how bad it will be but expect international shipping to cost close to the item price unless you get favorable box size/weights.
>>
>>3831263
thanks for the explanations. I thought it would take a lot longer for SHWD to enter serialization, but I suppose I also read the one-shot a lot longer ago than I thought.
picked up the TsukuTabe stuff through Buyee, since it's the one I know. I'm sure it's a rookie mistake, but I've ordered mugs from
Mercari through them and they've turned out alright. I usually miss out on nice yuri merch so I'm glad I can get my hands on at least this stuff.

I was browsing Amazon for Kaijuu Iro no Shima and saw "Only 1 left in stock", so I decided to clear out most of my shopping cart. Turned out I was tricked by Amazon and after they shipped my order the status immediately goes back to "Only 1 left in stock."
>>
>>3833040
I've seen that before and my guess was that they keep low shelf space in their inventory and get a new one from the distributor if there are any left. I've bought the last volumes left a couple times when it was actually the last one and never restocked. For some things it is worth taking the gamble rather than missing out and having to buy it used for twice the price. Used to happen to me more often on new releases that don't sell enough to get a reprint.

Holy shit, the artbook of citrus is fucking huge.
I didn't check the size, I thought it was the usual artbook size, now I understand why the shipment was so expensive.
The huge wedding spreads are so damn good and it's nice to have all the store exclusives I missed with the volumes, but the lack of HaruYuzu is disappointing.

Thank god cdjapan didn't go "eco", everything was wrapped in bubble wrap and every empty space in the box was filled with paper. It's probably the first time in at least one year that I haven't received any damaged book. I may stick with it despite the expensive shipping. It also said 1-3 weeks for some volumes but it shipped everything in 2 days (but Vampeerz is still out of stock). Then FedEx put it out for delivery and at the end of the day brought it back to their warehouse without delivering it. It worried me as hell but then they delivered it the next day. Their custom taxes are higher too, 11,90 € for an order of 182,05 € (6,5% against Amazon's 4%).

The OP really should be updated. Honto does no longer ship internationally, and a link to https://www.yurizukan.com/ should probably be added, since it has a very good tagged database for yuri works and it's fairly practical.

generally why wouldn't a publisher put out volume compilations? rather not spend money putting together a cover?
>>
>>3841309
Thank you, I will update it for the next thread.
>>
>>3841504
Physical releases cost money to print, and the publisher is on the hook if there aren't enough sales to make up the costs of the printing. This is why you sometimes see digital only releases for series that don't sell well.

In this case, my guess is the publisher just wants to push their app.
>>
>>3842030
It's about time they understand that printed and digital are not the same market. I'm not going to buy digital just because they won't print something, even more when it's a series that started by getting printed and then switched to digital only.
I don't know if Hino-san's case though, the first volume also took a lot to be released, maybe there's some problems or they're waiting for (incomprehensible) marketing reasons like sometimes it happens they wait to release something that's ready to release it together with something else, even two volumes of the same series.
>>
>>3842538
They know that some people won't buy digital but that doesn't justify the additional cost.
>>
>>3843144
It makes you wonder why they are even producing yuri if they know it doesn't sell and don't even try to sell it. I can't get the rounin series and can't read the single chapters since they are behind the app wall even if they have a perfectly functioning site that used to host the chapters.
>>
>>3841504
The problem is that Ganma/Comic Smart isn't a normal publisher, the volumes came out under Futabasha's Action Comics label. It's possible that they can't find an agreement on publishing further volumes.

So I got around to reading vol. 2 of 忍者と殺し屋のふたりぐらし today, but is literally no one else following it on /u/? It's the perfect black/psychopathic comedy (with subtext and explicit yuri) to mindbreak people on the internet.

There is a bit of weird fetish shit breast enlargement as well as generally fucked up developments such as the assassin killing the mother, father, and childhood friend of her only friend in highschool (for money) and then the ninja dumping all of her share of the payout money on gacha. Meanwhile, the ninja senpai who's in an explicit yuri relationship turns out to be deadbeat, pachinko-addicted, womanizing scum whose relationship with an OL is kept together by their sexual chemistry. Nonetheless, there is genuine development for the main pair and they are actually cute together despite being psychopaths.

I'm honestly surprised I've seen basically no discussion of it on /u/.

Finally a full month. I must also buy Jahy-sama 9 released in October that wasn't listed anywhere and I read the first volume of Otoriyose shimasshi and it was ok, except one chapter MC faked to have a boyfriend, so I guess I'll buy the second volume too.
I still don't know if getting 全部君のせいだ or not. Tachibanakan was already shit and this has men looking at the girls, I don't know if I can stomach it.

No お姉さまと巨人? I'm going to assume the lack of Wataoshi, Watanugi, and LycoReco are intentional.

Other than those, I will definitely get the 切符 artbook and マグロちゃんは食べられたい!. The ending of たびみまん looked nice, so I'm considering that one too. I'd also like to support the author of きみと観たいレースがある, but I just do not care about horse racing.

>ハートのおくりもの match作品集
Everything from match was yuri until 天使の牧場, which is basically futa. Still baffled by that decision because girls×garden has been great outside of that. Also, please give me a tankobon release of Takishima Asaka's works already.
>>
>>3846861
>天使の牧場
That's it, I knew I already heard that name and saw that art but I couldn't remember why and because of the generic name I couldn't find a match (heh) on google. It can remain where it is.

I'm interested in that artbook though, I remember it was posted before and then I forgot it because it wasn't listed anywhere, but is it really a yuri artbook or just a girls artbook with the occasional pic with two girls in it?

Outside of 天使の牧場, match's works are pretty fun to be honest. But I can see why you might avoid it anyway.

>is it really a yuri artbook
It's not exclusively yuri, which you can see from the series on obi in the image above, and there will be illustrations of males in there too. The LILITOPIA series from the artist is yuri and they have also done illustrations for a number of yuri works, so I expect a good chunk to be yuri.

Check out the promo site and the artist's pixiv if you are on the fence.

>>
>>3847591
>to the reader 92 pages in?
It's just 92 pages into that Carat issue.
The story is that a JK is forced by her sister to work as a mascot for the local Sasa Kamaboko called Sasael. In that particular arc they are working with a local idol who wrongly assumed she was a boy.
The main pairing is with the suit actress of another mascot, Kujira Bacon. Additonally one of her classmates is a huge fan of Sasael.
>>
So I ordered an artbook from Amazon JP to test the giftwrap option.
1. As a mook, it didn't fit in any small sack so they opted for an oversized envelope with the thick kind of paper.
2. The book was unwrapped and too small for the envelope. Yes, it can slide around.
3. It came in a cardboard box where the envelope fit perfectly at the bottom.
4. The corners and edges are nice but the middle pages are a bit scuffed since the book was unwrapped and the envelope folds inwards, bumping into the book's edges when it moves during transport.

Overall, don't expect them to secure it with giftwrap. If you buy something smaller, I expect them to skip out on the shrinkwrapping again, and throw it in a box, dooming it's corners. At least nothing got torn open and dirtied from the sucky envelope this time.
>>
>>3853598
>throw it in a box
That would already be an improvement compared to the current paper bag.
I enquired them a couple of days ago before of placing my order to ask them to ship in a proper package.
>Our packaging is decided by our system automatically, depends on the product size, country, carrier and shipping method ( priority or standard ) when the order is fulfilled by us.
>We unfortunately do not have any control over the packing way but what we can do is to keep reporting the issue caused by the insufficient packing.
Basically there is no way to have them giving any thought about it. I'm giving them one last chance, this month I have more than 20 volumes since I decided to buy TsukuTabe too, I don't think a person with a working brain would ship 20+ volumes in a paper bag, but I'd say the same about PC parts and glass items and yet you can see the pics of broken goods on twitter...

Interestingly, I just went to make my monthly order and amazon's shipping charge was actually more expensive than cdjapan's for the same order. Did anyone else notice amazon increase their shipping charges recently?
>>
>>3854004
Wtf, I was placing my order and it says shipment is 14700 yen when it's never been higher than 5000. What the hell is going on? Imagine if they make you pay that and then they send you the paper bag full of damaged items.
I'd rather go with cdjapan but Vampeerz is still out of stock. If I try to add it to the cart it says
>is "Sold Out" and therefore, it is no longer available for orders.
Don't cdjapan ever restock? Once it's gone it's gone forever?
>>
>>3854051
It's possible the increased shipping costs are related to the holidays. I sure hope the new standard is not 15000 yen to have your shit thrown in a paper bag or unsecured in a box.

I'm also having the same problem where a couple things I want are out of stock on cdjapan. The availability is "No longer available" and 販売終了 on the Japanese version of the site, so maybe they just don't restock. Might be time to try yet another store.

My experience with the 14780 yen shipment of Amazon: order divided in 3 parts, a big one, one with 4 volumes and one last volume that hasn't been shipped yet (Hatsukoi aite 3). The four volumes arrived in a cardboard envelope of the right size for the four volumes, there was nothing else inside but the volumes hadn't space to move. The big one arrived in a cardboard box with a lot of crushed paper to keep the volumes on their place and it worked. Results: 0 damaged books this time, not a single ripped obi.
But I can't say if the incresed shipping cost has anything to do with it or if I just got lucky they didn't ship the paper bag. Now let's see how (and when) they will ship the last volume alone.

>>3856832
>there's no reason to ever use amazon again compared to forwarding companies
Well, if you ship abroad you can avoid the 10% japanese VAT that it's always charged for trades within Japan (store-forwarder).
>>
>>3859614
Another data point: my order (shipping: 10189 yen) just arrived. Paper bag for 13 volumes, the books themselves are completely fine. Some obi had fallen off; 1 has a bad tear cutting half way through but is otherwise still in one piece, 4 have wrinkles or a tiny tear, and the rest are fine.
>>
>>3854004
>>3854051
>>3858129

I just tried putting 17 books(same titles and all) on both Amazon and CDJapan. Amazon is still cheaper with only 2,900 yen while CDJapan wants 7,000 yen for EMS and even the uninsured airmail is 4,700 yen.
>>
>>3859824
You have 17 items only costing 2900 yen to ship? You must either live in japan or in some affiliated SEA country that doesn't use amazon's international shipping becuase that price is like 2019 numbers.
>>
>>3859738
So the higher shipment is not for the packaging and I just got lucky. The last volume was shipped today, I guess it will be in a paper envelope.
So now let's wait and see if the rates will go back to what they used to be otherwise it will be only cdjapan from now on, hoping nothing will go out of stock, but it will mean spending a lot more.
>>
>>3859614
The last volume is here and it was inside the same cardboard envelope used for the 4 volumes shipment so no damage. I either got lucky 3 times in a row or they mark customers who complain and ask for refunds on damaged goods so they are more careful when shipping their stuff.
>>
>>3861465
Amazon packaging quality and damage seems pretty random. I even had one of the infamous bags for a large shipment which had no damage to my books. I'd actually say it's been better than it used to be since I haven't had anything routed through Hong Kong lately. They seemed to intentionally beat up my packages through that route.

I didn't post anything for December because it was busy but that month was packed with newly released yuri, I think I bought over 30 titles that month, also there were a handful of things not on any lists which made it time consuming to get everything.

There's not a lot of explicit romance between the pair, but I don't remember anything objectionable. And they do visit an aquarium. However, it was a huge waste of the author's talent to have them adapt this in my opinion.

Are you all seriously not reading ハクメイとミコチ, or do you not consider it yuri enough to list here?
There's also the Konbu Wakame artbook, but it doesn't look like it's yuri. I'll get it because her taste in brown girls is exceptional.

I enquired cdjapan about the VAT prepayment, asking them if, in the case they charge a higher VAT than the one requested by the custom, they would refund the difference, how Amazon used to do before of the current system. I specified I had already read the FAQ on the site and there was no answer to my question, and that switching to DHL is not a solution since it's 3000 yen higher.
They replied by copypasting stuff already written on the site.
>We plan to support the reduced tax rate for each product in the next update scheduled to be available by the end of this year
>If you purchase goods that are subject to reduced tax rates, please select DHL, which VAT payment on purchase is not applicable.
I insisted, repeating my question and asking for a yes/no answer about the refund of a higher deposit. Once again they didn't reply to my question.
>we only suggest you to select the shipping method DHL
Now, when they avoid answering a question like that I can only think it's done in bad faith. If you're not planning to refund a higher charge just say no. Switching do DHL and paying 3000 yen more without the VAT is not different than paying 4000 yen of VAT.
In the end I had to place my order on Amazon which ended up being cheaper despite the rates of the shipment being three times what they used to be, while keeping to be in fear of receiving damaged goods. I was ready to finally ditch Amazon for cdjapan but until they won't adjust the VAT rates (end of the year, really?) cdjapan will be unusable for me.

I'm glad I don't have to deal with VAT, since that makes everything more complicated. My biggest complaint with cdjapan is they don't list a lot of items ahead of time, so by the time I can put my order in, something is always out of stock.

How can you avoid paying VAT? Even EMS had it back in the days when I used it. Doesn't your country charge anything on imports?

By the way my order arrived, cardboard box and plastic to fill the empty space which is better than paper. I can see a slight improvement (thank god considering the shipment that's three times what it used to be) but there was a ripped obi anyway.
