For Germany I can only attest that all releases before JPU are only available via Japanese sellers on Amazon or Ebay. Or from Japanese online sellers directly, but then you pay a lot more since they add the German value added tax and handling fees on top, which basically doubles the price if you order less than three or four CDs at a time.

Having a hard time getting all the limited edition CDs...

EDIT: Amending to add the names of the Amazon marketplace sellers I frequent.
- Arc Trade Media_JAPAN (by far the most purchases with them)
- KELINDO³
- samurai media

There's a Facebook Group called SCANDAL Merch - Buy/Sell/Trade where fans sell both unopened and pre-loved SCANDAL records and merchandise.

@Andy666

We are just very unlucky where we live, I have used CDJapan for many years and they are fast and reliable, dont blame them for the Custom charges.

When my American friend orders from them he pays nothing Sad

I don't blame CD Japan, like you say we just unlucky were we live. Hopeful next year Britain and Japan will come up with new trade deal, which will make it easy on our wallets.

I will use CD Japan again sometime in August,  maybe a Scandal hoodie as birthday gift for myself Where to purchase SCANDAL CDs? - Page 12 1f603

Had a chance to compare a CDJapan edition of Yellow and a JPU edition of Yellow and it seems the latter has slightly lower print quality on the CD booklet? Or maybe they're all the same, just so happens my JPU copy wasn't printed well Sad

I still ended up buying KFTD from JPU because the "her" magazine was fully translated into English, so that's something for non-Jap-speaking fans to consider when making future Scandal purchases Happy

Usually when I buy anything from CDJapan I get a note in my letter-box telling me that there's a package for me in the local sorting office & after I pay the customs duty I can pick it up or they will deliver it. Since the Coronavirus lock-down they don't bother any more. They just deliver it with no Customs Duty or International Handling Fee to pay. 
If you live in the UK & are thinking of buying from CD Japan - do it now.

I think you are/were lucky (or perhaps CDJ has started to underquote the prices on that invoice they stick on the box for HM Customs to look at).

I received some goodies from CDJ that I had to pick up at the local Parcelforce depot just two weeks ago and I was slapped the usual.

Hmph

I got same KFTD with magazine from JPU. When I was reading your post it just don to me, is one of members of SH work at JPU I will need to find out and ask the person if they could increase Scandal range.


Hi, got a update. I got a message from JPU, they said they ask the management many times

OK, perhaps I'd better clarify some of my post of 21st.

I suggested that, taking into account the disruption caused by Coronavirus over here & my own experience of understaffed postal services failing to bother with usual international postal charges that, if you live in the UK, this would be a good time to order stuff from Japan. What I should have said is if you are ordering stuff from England, not the UK, as the Government at Westminster has no control of Coronavirus lock-down regulations in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland (which I take to be the cause of this disruption). How long this situation will continue is an unknown  as our Dear Leader, "Barmy" Boris, announces random changes to the lock-down regulations on an almost daily basis.

Certainly my own experience has been that on two deliveries I received in May neither the Customs Duty nor International Handling Fee declared on the box were charged. I have a delivery of two DVDs (DOLLSBOXX & SHOW-YA) on its way from CDJapan at this moment, so we'll see what the situation is about delivery charges when they arrive.

@kudo_maharizu, I can only relate my personal experience. You comment that you paid charges at a Parcelforce office recently. I am reporting on packages processed through the local Royal Mail Delivery Office which is a different outfit. Furthermore you suggest that CDJ may have underquoted the price on the label (which I think they have done occasionally in the past) in order to save me a bob or two, but nevertheless I would expect to still have to pay the Royal Mail International Handling Fee.

Anyway, I think I've laboured this issue long enough.

Hopefully in future JPU will sell some of Scandal's older products in English. Will definitely save up money for that! 
 LOVE 

Though it is a fact that JPU Scandal products are much cheaper than the ones on CDJapan, perhaps they have to cut back on quality in some way to make up for it.

In my country, CD shops pretty much don't exist anymore. Many years ago you could still buy jpop CDs including Scandal's from physical shops here (albeit very expensive at 35-50 USD, compared to their "western" counterpart CDs which sold at ~15USD). But now, can't even find shops to buy CDs from, so online is the only choice, crazy shipping costs and all.

I know Japan and Korea still have a bit of CD-buying culture, but it does make me question the long-term relevance of rankings like Oricon, cos they only count physical sales when clearly the rests of the world is moving into a digital age.

And thank you for doing so. I do hope you didn't think I was having a go at you - I just said you were perhaps lucky - something I wish would happen to me or anyone here who gets slapped with charges more often than not, if I may add.

And yes, back to the topic of the thread at hand.

Sorry
