My fake grail and other april lootMy fake grail and other april lootLoot

HEY MFC, I'm back after selling my kidneys to pay for loot!

I received my Surugaya order a few weeks ago and just recieved my Amiami order so here goes super whiny and ranty post.

First up my whining about Surugaya because they are a piece of shit which deserves all the whining they get ヾ(๑ゝω・)ノ♡

I've used Surugaya before and while I've been burned by their slowness and actually sending me the wrong items I've forgiven them over and over again but not anymore. Our relationship is like one of toxic boyfriend and girlfriend cue BGM over the rest of my rant

I've bought from them about 4 or so times, so while they put up their gaijin block I figured, they still accept my money so I'll get it sent to a forwarding service, which worked the last two times I bought from them.

I found it odd that this time, right as they said the order was ready to be shipped, they asked for an email confirmation to say yes I indeed want the crap I bought. I suppose this was to sieve out the non-japanese speaking gaijin. Fine, I'll take that, I replied in Japanese.

But then they said, "we don't take foreign cards because we need the permission of the card owner".

I paid with my own card so hell that must mean I gave permission right?

I email them back saying this is indeed my card, so please use it because there is no way I can do cash on delivery, which is what they asked for.

Result: "We cannot process gaijin cards which was stated on our site before you placed your order"

DON'T FUCKING LIE TO ME, IT WAS NOT ON THE SITE EVER. I'VE ALREADY BOUGHT STUFF BEFORE FROM YOU AS WELL. ( ৺ ◡৺ ) What even changed?

Anyway, in the end I had to change all the details and ask them to send it to my friend in Japan so she could send it to me. It was, a huge pain in the ass and needless to say I'm probably never going back. Why the hell do they not like money?

So after that month of back and forth with them, I got my stuff from my friend.

I bought a lot of Touken Ranbu doujinshi and otome game goods:


The fake holy grail...

Tokimeki Memorial Girl's side was one the games that secured my foot into the door of otome games. This ring was also one of the things that I thought I was going to have nightmares about not owning. Also the reason I was very reluctant to cancel my order.

Okay I lied, I really actually wanted Ruka's ring but Kou's ring was the only one I found and also at a really good price/size!

Thus the fake holy grail status

All my swordboys!

Some of these look like they're dodgy R18+ doujin but I assure you, there's nothing like that at all here hahaha.
I got me some Ishikirimaru, Shokudaikiri, Tsurumaru, Yagen, Ookurikara, Hasebe, Nihongo, Tonbokiri, Otegine and Nikkari x Saniwa doujin because I have no qualms about which sword gets kissed ╮(•ω•)╭

Rubber straps are awesome
http://i.imgur.com/DLZ6YRt.jpg
I haven't even played Shinobi Koi Utsutsu but because the set was cute I bought it anyway. The other strap was an event limited and it has 2 of my favourite chars I bought it (✿◉◡◉) I really wanted it. Like really.

I went on a Kin Iro no Corda binge lately so I just had to get Yunokiiiii (the set was cheap so I bought the entire set...)
The boxes were kind of damaged but the items weren't used so I don't mind.

Otome game boooooks!
http://i.imgur.com/qU71yCc.jpg
Will o Wisp was the first otome game I ever full comped so I bought the fanbook 5 years later. Hahahahahahahahaha....
The other things I bought because.........yeah I can't even justify why I bought them because Custom Drive made me rage quit after one route. I haven't even touched Trick or Alice. ╮(•ω•)╭

Moving on to the less annoying but also very expensive order, my monthly Amiami order!

From Amiami:


ONE PUUUUUUUUNCH!
http://i.imgur.com/p7FWQm4.jpg

I'm more used to the Touken Ranbu nendos with have a lot more parts so I was pretty shocked at how little Saitama came with (´・ω・) but I guess he's meant to be simple so I don't really mind.

Kin Iro no Corda 4

....I couldn't be bothered doing anything for this because it was so massive and had too much stuff inside.

In any case this game was 4 fucking kilograms which made my shipping insanely expensive. But I'm a sucker for my 2D boyfriends so I will be their sugar mama when they ask for it.

Kirbyyyyyy
http://i.imgur.com/B1SYLWo.jpg

Kirby is too cute not to buy. Had no time to open the diorama part and customise it though. Will place it together with my King Dedede and Metaknight (・ω・ )!

それは、誠なのか。
http://i.imgur.com/eoOc19q.jpg

It was a bad idea to watch this series right as the preorders for Kururiuri's scale fig dried up. I was recommended it based on my liking for Mushishi and got hooked. Then cried when I couldn't get his 3D ass.

Then when he came out I kept refreshing the order page until someone cancelled their order. ~( ~´・_・`)~ Also, there's a new manga serialisation coming out?! Aw ye.

The smaller items
http://i.imgur.com/u0NlZba.jpg

I've been waiting for this day for a very long time. The day Ryouji finally got goods. Now scale fig please.

The stickers are for my boyfriend so meh.

Also lately I've gotten hooked on Fate GO //sweats Hans Christian Andersen is so awful. I like him. Too bad he's so weak ( ৺ ◡৺ ) I can't even use him in my normal team.

And if only there was more merch of the servants other than Arturia/her look a likes.

Kintarou Ame? Did you mean candy from hell?
http://i.imgur.com/xCf0gRH.jpg

Enough said.
Jokes aside they're rock candy with different Korosensei faces on them, my personal favourite is the grapefruit flavoured blank face

That concludes my post and it is time for me to sell any other non-essential organs for my next orders.

Thanks for reading, and maybe see you again if I haven't sold my eyeballs yet.

Yukicchuu4 года назад#10155201Ahh right, I don't think I've ever gotten emails saying the items were damaged in some way though (;ω;`) guess little rips and bends aren't counted.
(´・ω・) if PP is fine, then I might still give them some thought......
Hahaha I hope she's fine! Good luck ( 'ω')ノ(;ω;`) You've been lucky so far it seems at least.


Yeah i have. And i think it is a matter of the staff who packs it at that very moment. Some care and apparantly some dont.

I only had it with the cards, i had worse luck with yahoo auction cards >.> heavily scratched obviously used it made me pissed

Yeah I hope so too but reading all this im a bit scared especially since it said rank B (tho my kirche holo card was rank B and i saw 0 damage)

heekyunggx34 года назад#10139047I buy from suruga-ya quite often, but I use j-subculture as my deputy. They're great, and I've never had a problem with them. They also give a quote of the items prior, so you can decide whether or not you want to go through with it (if you don't want to go through with it, just delete the quote). I understand not wanting to use it again after your experiences (I'm sorry to hear that you experienced them btw :(), but if you ever want to use a deputy for anything, I recommend them!

Ah I've used proxies before but the final charge is wayyyy too much that it doesn't end up worth it. Besides if they took foreign money but won't ship internationally it's still okay for me, just for some reason they rejected my card even though I paid with it with previous orders (so it's not a matter of they can't do it, more that they won't).

abi4 года назад#10138021ugh, surugaya, on one side is awesome because they have a wide variety of out of print things and at great prices, but, they gave me a bad 1st impression the only time I've bought from them; I ordered from their store trough a proxy, all my items got here and everything, but, one figure was bagged full of cigarette ashes, yellowish and smelly, and it wasn't very cheap for an old trading figure. And there wasn't anything about the condition of the items on the site so x_x ... good I could wash the figure, the smell is gone, and even the weird coloration disappeared

Holy crap that's really foul. Even if you could clean it I feel like it's still soiled forever (˚ ˃̣̣̥᷄⌓˂̣̣̥᷅ ). There might....be a reason why they still have a lot of out of print stuff lol. The condition is so bad no one else wants it XD....

Chloe-tsundere4 года назад#10110120They indeed dont but i got a message and had to confirm if i still wanted the items that were scratched.. But with the cds i didnt..
Yes you just check out and pay what you have to pay.. I use forwarding so biginjap charges me the rest (shipping plus pp fees and forwarding fees)
I havent had an item in bad condition besides the 2 cds. Maple is on its way to me so i hope shes fine or i will cry.. Cause her shipping is expensive
So far no lost items. Tho i bought WS cards and not sure if they missed one there tho as its hard to keep track

Yukicchuu4 года назад#10107693I thought they don't ever put the item condition on the site? I always just assume its bad condition because of my own experience.
They do free shipping over a $$ limit within Japan which is why they probably just throw it in a box and ignore the size lol.
Oh how does the paypal thing work? Do they actually charge you the correct amount (once, like a normal store)?

materix014 года назад#10102575I like Surugaya since it's got pretty good prices and often have figures or items that are easily sold out in Mandarake etc. I always use a proxy rather than a forwarding service with them because of the reasons you wrote. Whenever I make a large order, they always tend to lose 1-2 items but luckily my proxy deals with that instead of me.
It's a worry if they always lose an item or two because if you pay for something its a given you get that thing... Proxy increases the prices as well :|

tohoeshinki4 года назад#10080244What. I don't even know you can actually buy from suruga-ya if you're not from Japan :/ I usually use proxy, so if anything happens, I don't deal with the trouble.
DANG that rubber set that the box was damage but the inside are not (?) are looking goooood. I really love the color!
Sweet you have ur kusuriuri, i love him soooooooooo much, I bought two.
Jealous with you sensei nendo :/ mine hasnt arrived :(


You can't, I tried to use a forwarding service but they demanded I use cash on delivery because I have a foreign card, and no forwarding service will ever accept COD. I used to use a proxy but it was way too expensive to be worth it :|...
Hahaha colourful boys XD...

Holy crap two???? I feel for your wallet 'A'. It's okay, once your Saitama arrives, you can stroke his smooth bald head too.....

Chloe-tsundere4 года назад#10076530Ahh bittersweet relationship with suru here as well.
Very slow indeed and i had a damaged item without them listing it as damaged (cd cover damaged) so yeah pretty pissed (2 cds)
I bought maple on impulse just to find out the hefty shipping didnt know she was this big and heavy, stupid me shouldve checked before ordering >.<
And suru also ships in a huge box for small items -_- which usually increases the shipping or it being ems only =\ (with my forwarding so I had to go for repackage they told me it is cheaper than ems even with the extra 500 yen so i dealt with it)
I always pay by paypal with them and no 18+ btw so i dont encounter such problems
Rest of the loot and info seems fine so im glad to read that :) that mushishi fig looks great tho
