Hello, I'm a long time SCANDAL HEAVEN lurker but decided to join after seeing the discussion on Kiss from the darkness.

Thought I'd say hello! I'm Tom and I work at JPU records and have been working with SCANDAL since the Hello World album (we also released the tour documentary with English subtitles).

Nice to meet you all~

If you have any questions about stuff, I'm happy to answer.

Hello!

Welcome JPU Records ! 

I have some questions : 

- I have already ordered the CD + magazine edition on your shop but with Brexit on January 31, do we have to worry about certain additional costs or not?

- Is there any chance of having a pre-order bonus like a poster or stuff like that?

Hello!
Oh, they're good questions.

1. To be honest, nobody knows. It's all a bit chaotic at the moment... I asked our distributor if we should make the CD in Europe (usually we make in the UK) to keep costs down, and they said they don't know either but not to worry about it. So.. I'm not sure, we'll have to wait and see I suppose. Sorry, not really an answer

What?
2. Good idea! We try and do things like this, but it all depends on if management approve it. So far all of our ideas except regular edition and magazine haven't been approved. What kind of things would you like that's not currently available from other stores?

Thanks for the answers ! 

Few days ago when I saw this picture, I thought that it could be an awesome poster :

They also sell a lot of rubber band bracelet for their japanese fans, maybe it could be possible to have some for their overseas fans...

Oh that's a good idea! Especially with the Magazine edition as it will fit in the postal box without any extra cost for the customer to pay. 

Oh I just remembered, when SCANDAL came to London I was so happy to see RINA wearing an Oasis shirt.

That photo is the one currently on the Victor/Scandal home page and used by many media outlets.

The text is about the live dates for Kyoto/Osaka and its an poster ad from box office eplus.jp

Closer shot that I took: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

That photo is also used on the clear file as the pre-order bonus for KFTD album CD releases.

Hi, Tom, Great to have your input on this site. (As you'll see by my join date , I too have been a long-time lurker but not very actively involved.) 
Typically modest of you to introduce yourself as a "worker" at JPU, as far as most of us are concerned you "are" JPU & are widely appreciated over here for promoting not only SCANDAL, but Lovebites & Band Maid (the three top Japanese bands in the UK at the moment, according to the poll in the Asian pop culture magazine NEO) plus many others. To say that you are largely responsible for the popularity of many Asian bands in Europe wouldn't be much of an exaggeration. 
What with Hyper-Japan being cancelled in November I missed the chance to chat & catch up with the latest news. Welcome again.
