Just got the information regarding the Winter Comiket Umineko releases:
Naturally, we have
Umineko no naku koro ni chiru: Twilight of the golden witch (うみねこのなく頃に散：Twilight of the golden witch)
(img from amiami – preorders open on Nov 29th!)
episode 8 of the Umineko series which will likely bring the story to a close and answer all the questions Ryuukishi is going to answer XD;
(but that’s not all…)
Well this is a bit late in posting, but since the amiami order hasn’t shipped yet I’m still good, I think >_>
Starting with things that have already arrived:
Dengeki G’s Magazine – Dec 2010
This month’s edition comes with two “bath posters” – one of Kuroko and one of Kanade – as well as an OreImo pencil board~ I’ll talk about the contents in detail in a later post.
“What are you doing, Saku?”
In the last day or so, it was announced that after November 17th Japan Post will not be accepting any packages over the weight of 453g (slightly under 1lb) for shipping to the United States. This decision seems to have been made in response to the recent mail bombings that have occurred.
This regulation allows an exception for any businesses that have a monthly contract with Japan Post.
(A post on /toy/ (4chan board) has an e-mail from AmiAmi that claims that Japan Post will only be disallowing packages with missing info: no return address, etc. This was not part of Japan Post’s official statement.)
How does this affect you?
Individual sellers and small companies that bring packages to the post office and pay there, rather than have items picked up at their place of business and pay monthly, will no longer be able to ship packages over 1lb to the United States.
Additionally, companies with a contract of less than 30 days will also be affected.
I will be compiling a list of stores that have either posted a notice or replied to me by e-mail regarding this issue.
Please be aware that if the company is fairly large they likely already have a contract and should not be adversely affected.
