Yes, well got it this week as I only submitted the shipping requests earlier this month. It arrived last week while I wasn't home and I only had time to pick up the packages at the post office yesterday afternoon. At least it is here now. I still need to figure out where to hang up the scroll as I'm starting to run out of usable wall space :p

Honestly I don't know. They often find a reason to block it. When it gets blocked it is always for the same reason. They need proof that you paid for the goods and confirmation that it is for "personal use". I find this really stupid as it is obvious that it is for personal use. If I was going to sell the goods I wouldn't order the goods using my own name but them name of a store and I wouldn't order just 1 item but a set of 20 (just an example). And sure I had to pay for it. Since when it ordering stuff free? Would they send something over if you didn't pay? People at customs are stupid.

On top of that they always charge 21% VAT on the goods they block. This is also the case if the descriptions says :"DVD and Books". You're left with all the trouble because they are too lazy to make a difference in the value of the books and the DVDs. It makes a huge difference considering books are charged with only 6% VAT.

When they check your package there's also the problem that they keep your invoice. Usually you get 5 pages of documents with the package iirc. 1 page of those pages is the invoice and 2 others are the customs declaration documents. Well instead of using the declaration document they use they invoice itself. Not that big of a deal you might think but it is to me as the details of your order are on the invoice and you don't get the documents back once they checked it. You get the customs declaration document back but that one only has a vague description and only mentions the value of the goods and nothing about shipping charges and other details like discounts. This is a big deal for me as I keep track of everything I spend money on and I keep all of my invoices printed out in binders. Not easy when you don't get the invoice back after your packages got checked out.

Sadly I'm getting used to this and I often have to call them at one time or another of the delivery. I even took the trouble of adding their mail adress in my contacts list... :(

The only service I can't complain about are those from courier services like DHL and FedEx. They always fill in the customs the way it should be but you'll always have to pay charges as they take care of all the paperwork themselves (not the case with regular postal services) The only little thing you need to ba carefull about is the currency conversion. They sometimes change that a bit and you can end up paying more or less depending on the value and goods.

As you can see I'm clearly unhappy about the customs in my country.

Post office screw up or annoying neighbors, I don't know. I have been waiting for 1 month for an artbook loot, and today I got the delivery notification. It was already delivered on the 14th…

Moreover, it's missing the Pixiv Calendar 2012. I have no idea where it's… blame post office or shop? I fear though that it might be in another package, because the calendar couldn't fit in the box…

Image


On another note, I'm in Paris so not at home, and I'm waiting for a figurine. SAL shipping has been extremely slow… I just hope I will be able to get it when I get back home.

Got them yesterday. As I expected, the Pixiv Calendar came in another package… Funny how something sent the same day, from the same place, arrived a good week latter.

Next part is a figurine by Kotobukiya, Melty from Shining Hearts, designed by Tony Taka. Custom didn't miss it >.<

There was none :(. Instead, they released the title of their next artbook xD This one I will preorder limited edition if available ( didn't order a LE for some time xD )

Speaking of C81… thank you euro for falling like crap >.<. This is going to be expensive. And I'm already looking at korean goodies… *sigh*

Oh hey, the "My Girlfriend is the President" that I preordered last may just got here today... if only my computer motherboard hadn't failed two weeks ago... :(

(Actually it doesn't make that much of a difference, since I can usually find no time to play computer games... I still have barely started on "Hourglass of Summer" which I bought in 2010.)

3 packages arrived this past week but it was only just today that I had some time to take pictures.

First was an amazon package with 3 artboosk:

Image


Next was a pacakge of BD
Horizon vol.2 Limited Edition and Mashiroiro vol.1 First Press

Image

Image

Image


The final package contains part of my C81 loot. There's still a blanket that I'm expecting from Feng, but that one is re-release mailorder that only ships end of this month.

So for C81 I got Debonosu set (not included in the image is the cardboard illustration as I already put that away in a binder)

Image


WNB goodies set (not included in the image are the k-on stick posters. Already in a binder)

Image


Hisuitei full set. Once again a damn expensive set. The MF towel is a B1 size.

Bought yaoi loot for my wife. Never came yet. Said it will be here at the end of March. With the babies this will most likely be my last loot grab for awhile. The user is sending it by a boat or something. It cost me ninety dollars so I better get it. I personally don't like yaoi. Sorry to any fans. >I get shot<
