I was just checking out YesAsia.com to see if they already began listing AO AKUA, the photobook, and order from there… but they haven’t. By the way, GuuGuu is on the way~~~~ xD
Back on topic, so I went over to Amazon Japan to see if I could get AO AKUA from there, but before I tried anything I checked the international shipping rates~~ Turns out they just eliminated Economy International Shipping, and we outside Japan are left with Express International Shipping ONLY, which is UBER expensive.
For me, living in South America – 3 500 Yen for shipment of CDs/DVDs (roughly $35-40USD, and 4 400 Yen for Books) – like FUCK! More expensive than the goddamn item. LOL
*scratching joining Amazon.co.jp off my list*
I got suggested HMV Japan, which is better in terms of shipping pricing, it seems~~
It takes into consideration the # of units (like YesAsia does) – my latest YesAsia order is 3 units, which would roughly translate to 2 100 Yen in HMV Japan ($20USD-25). Still kills me though~~~~
