Whee~~! It’s here!! ☆-ヽ(*´∀｀)ノｲｴｰｲ
This is my first time ordering directly from Amazon Japan myself. ((((oﾟ▽ﾟ)o))) ﾄﾞｷﾄﾞｷ♪ I was so nervous when hitting the ‘checkout’ button and confirming my order. Soooo, let’s see what’s in my package~! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Pokemon Sun – The standard one w/out Amazon Limited Edition Yellow Pouch. It comes with preorder bonuses such as a Snorlax desktop wallpaper and a Snorlax GX card, not that I play Trading Cards tho… Initially, I planned to buy from Japanese Pokemon Centre ‘s Online store coz it comes with a Solgaleo figurine. Buuuut, I am stingy and since ordering from Amazon Japan can save me a few bucks… Wynaut? ┐(´ｰ｀)┌
PS: The figurine’s gonna be a dust magnet anyways… /cue me getting KO’ed by figurine loversヽ(╬☉Д⊙)ﾉ┌┛)๏д๏)ﾉﾌﾞﾎｯ
Rune Factory 4 – Only the physical copy, w/out any fancy-schmancy side stuff… (*´ω｀*)
A huge card case for all the future physical copies I’m planning to buy. It fits 24 cards, both 3DS and DS cards. It can also fit one SD card with the black thingy. Plus, a protective cover for my console-chan ♥ The quality is okay. I chose a soft, rubbery one coz I like soft cases, for my smartphone and consoles alike. I actually saw some comments on Amazon Jp about how the casing would obstruct the plugging of earphones and charging cable. But I bought it nevertheless, haha. It fits nicely on my console tho. Maybe they just got defective products, I guess?
Below is just my ordering ‘short’ story, for those interested (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧:
I ordered everything from Amazon Japan at 10th of November, a day after I finished my Year 1 finals. ( *´艸`)ｸｽｯ♪ Since Pokemon Sun isn’t out till 18th of November, I opt to have them bundled and shipped to me when it is released. So, on 18th Nov, Friday, I checked the ‘Track package’ page and it was updated with an estimated delivery date of 23rd Nov. (Yay!) And for the next few days, I constantly stalked the page for updates | ω Φ)ﾁﾗｯ My package was delivered by DHL from Nagoya, Japan to Hong Kong, then to Penang, Malaysia. It was actually delivered quite quick (I assume) coz the package arrived at Hong Kong on Saturday and then at Malaysia on Sunday. It was stuck there coz nobody is working at Sunday ┐(´ｰ｀)┌ lol.
On Monday, the staff at DHL called me for custom clearance and everything went smoothly. Then, I got another call yesterday (22nd Nov), I was partially surprised (as I half-expected it anyways) that they are outside my house to deliver the package.！？（=￣ω￣=）！！Sad thing is nobody’s at home, I am still at Kuala Lumpur and my mother is out working… So I rescheduled the date to 23rd Nov and I received my parcel ~ ♥
Overall, it’s a nice experience (methinks) and I’ll do it again, haha. （￣ー+￣）Downside is they only ship certain things and NOT (╬ಠωಠ) a cute pikachu or hello kitty kisekae plate for my console-chan. TT_TT
