SEB 242 is not available anymore too.
Well, that's really sad now. Is avex really pushing us to pirate the songs of artists we want to support?
I'm glad I pre-ordered the CD...

Same thing, was posted on Monday. It's sad if this prevents me from getting the last missing 10 SEBs, although there'll definitely be places to purchase them albeit at probably higher prices than I would've had if I used amazon.jp.

A friend of mine told me to use Tenso.com, a forwarder service to get such export-banned items. If nothing changes, I'll try the service in June.

Yep. Pre-order or use a forwarder. FFS.
At least CDJapan honored existing pre-orders.

Be prepared to provide government ID cards about you to a foreign company in a foreign country to be able to use their service.
I was NOT willing to do that, so I'm using a one-man forwarder. He's much cheaper too but he takes longer to shit out my stuff. But I'm OK with it.

But not everybody has such a one-man forwarder like you, so it's pretty much the only possibilty for the most of us.

Actually, he's not a private one-man forwarder. He takes order from everybody.

Yes, it's Touhou board. Yes, the post itself is pretty much Touhou centric. No, he doesn't exclusively deal in Touhou stuff.
For one CD, he charges 5$US in commission (max 20$), the shipping within Japan (always a variable) and 5$US for Air Mail shipping. So, a SEB will now start at ~32$US.

If you guys are interessed, you can contact him by email. His email is the link above, toward the end of the post (read carefully).
Like I said, he's slow to ship out because he's very busy; especially when he has cons and people order cons stuff. However, I've been with for almost 2 years actually. Very reliable. Good packaging and, if you have quirks, he does his best to fulfill them.

Of course other services online will be lightning fast at getting your stuff and ship out but the comissions and services will break your bank.

We will see what might happen yet...

That's what means "monopolist", "exclusive", especially in the music, if something lasts too long... And when a contract reminds more a pledge...

It's business, police of a company, it's not "friendship" in the photos when Bratt Sinclaire or Dave Rodgers shakes hands of Avex Trax Eurobeat department heads...

Message from SinclaireStyle facebook page :
"We've just asked Avex for a confirmation or disprove of latest rumors over possible Japanese overseas exports stop - also including SEB albums-
Keep you posted on their reply.
Thank you all for great support."
