yuuki_mafc (2 months ago) #25024802I haven't collected a dakimakura yet, I don't know who Misaki Kurehito is (name does ring a bell somewhere) - but I'm wiling to bet it certainly something that looks fantastic. Do post a pic if it ever arrives - I'd be curiously interested! My first dakimakura is definitely going to be ecchi! I'll probably have it hung up on a wall or something - don't have a hugging pillow nor do I have a need for one :|
I think its a wonderful hobby you have got going and quitting over this isn't really a sound solution. Perhaps take a break from ordering anything for the next little bit and then come back to it.
Depending on where about you are located, I'd be happy order for you and then have the stuff shipped to my office if shipping to you is an issue.
As for the cost shipping your important docs - couple things come to mind as to why the shipping charges are high:
1) Expedited costs a lot
2) Depending on the country you ship to, shipping can cost more
3) Shipping is not just based on size but also weight. You can have a huge box ship out for the same cost as a smaller package but they both weigh the same and vice versa
On a side note, I run a non-profit anime club in Mississauga, if you are interested in joining PM me and I'll fill you in ;)

Well, I can see that you have Katou Megumi by Aniplex in your hunting list. Misaki Kurehito is the illustrator of that figure's original art. Many SkyTube's NSFW figures are also based on his illustrations. He is also the illustrator of Saekano Series and one of the founders of a circle called Cradle.

As long as there's Katou Megumi's figure I won't quit completely, but that means I won't be collecting any other stuff beside hers.

Well shipping isn't the issue here. It's Canada Post. You might not have encountered a lot of problem with them but I have. Parcels delayed indefinitely or arrived damaged. (Thanks to AmiAmi's wonderful packaging, nothing inside was damaged, even though cardboard box looked like shit when it arrived.) And that happened a few times already.

And they used to knock on the door and now all they do is to stick a paper-slip on your door to tell you to pick up tomorrow. Not that I needed them desperately but still, do you JOB. You are supposed to KNOCK or RING the bell. I live close to Canada Post, so that isn't a big problem to me but what if I lived far away from Canada Post? I have to spend an hour or two to go there just to pick up a parcel every time they do that. Seriously, the decline in Canada Post is the main reason why I wanna quit this hobby.

I understand that expedited could cost more, but I don't think this justifies Canada Post to "OVERCHARGE" us. I mean, it's literally only a few pieces of paper to Taiwan (yes, Taiwan is my home country), and Canada Post charges you for $30-40 cads for 1 week(estimated time) delivery. Then I found another shipping company (forgot the name, maybe DHL?), who only charged me $10-12 cad for 1-2 week (estimated time) delivery. Dude that's like triple...

Thanks for the invitation but I live in Vancouver, BC. Missusaga is quite far away from here XD

BloodyEarth (2 months ago) #25015386A dakimakura cover drawn by the famous Misaki Kurehito. Just FYI, it's totally non-ecchi, nothing fishy that could get me arrested. It's not in MFC database and I am quite lazy to update it lol.
Sigh. I believe I will receive it just don't know when. And I just saw someone got their parcel today shipped dating back to Feb this year from Canada Post.
I am gonna quit this hobby after finishing collecting Megumi (Saekano) shrine. This is too painful. I thought about quitting due to lack of space but now Canada Post is really getting on my nerves. Not to mention I never had a pleasant experience with Canada Post. Once I tried to send a letter to my home country in Asia, just A LETTER (with important documents inside), they asked for 30-40ish for expedited! REAL? I could have a parcel sent to Canada with expedited only costing 30-40ish and that was only a freaking DOCUMENT!

yuuki_mafc (2 months ago) #24976203I'm sorry to hear that - what were you buying by the way? I could help scout out a better price online elsewhere if you like, I'm always on the hunt of figures
