Yamada Killed My Wallet

I pre-ordered the NTV version of Yamada's Mystery Virgin single from CDJapan last night. My wallet says "Kill me now". XD

I was actually thinking of buying it from the NTV shop since my cousins live in Japan and they could send it to me. But then, ordering from the NTV shop would be way too difficult with my limited Japanese knowledge, and it'd be such a hassle, having it shipped to my cousin, and then having my cousin ship it to me. I'd be forever worried that they won't pack it carefully and that the CD will be cracked when it gets to me. And I'd have to give my cousin something to thank them for the trouble too. Plus, I think the one from CDJapan would get to me faster because it's shipped through EMS. (I had no choice for shipping, though. It only allows EMS shipping.) Unless the tax man holds it at the customs - which I really hope wouldn't happen since it's just one freakin' expensive CD anyway.

And of course, I've already pre-ordered all the 3 other versions of MV when it came out. >< I just KNOW I'll regret it if I didn't order any of them.

Barely 2 weeks left until the single release~ Now, who's excited? :D

Kill me now, too x.x
If only I knew earlier that CDJapan will have a pre-order for it, I should have saved the money I got last Christmas <///3 Anyway, at least I was able to order the other three :DD Can't wait for next year!!

The NTV version costs more than the combined prices of the 3 other versions. XD Tbh, I don't think it's worth the price I'm paying for it (4180 freakin' yen!) but as Keito said in JUMParty 2: "I don't wanna regret anything....". XD

And I'm sure those 3 versions are enough to make you happy. :D and i'm sure someone will upload the ntv version even before i receive my copy, so you won't be missing out on much. The other 3 versions are already wallet-killers by themselves anyway. XD

Plus, we still have KINDAICHI to look forward to next year~~ There's Yuto's drama too. :D I can't wait for January!

I guess I'll just wait for someone to upload it and since the NTV version will contain clips from Kindaichi, I can just watch it during the drama itself :D But yeah, there's still a pinch of regret in me tho. It's his first solo and as much as possible I want to have all the versions, but my wallet is already at its limit. :/

Anyways, there are still great things to look forward to next year. As what you've said there's still Kindaichi SP (which is as equally important as the single XD) and Yuto's drama. He looked really cool in the CM. Can't wait to see what kind of boyfriend and brother he'll portray.

I'm hoping for a Johnny's World DVD too. I want to see all of them act in stage together :)))

I am ! Well not as much as you for sure XD But I can't wait to see the full PV and to hear his version of 'Ai no Katamari' and of course the new song and everything... o/

It's nice CD Japan are taking order for the NTV version o_o I think they felt like this is going to make them make a lot of money ahah XD

Glad you're able to buy it anyway !

I'm drooling at the thought of PVs for BOTH Mystery Virgin and Moonlight. And everything else but more for the PVs. :D

I think CDJapan received some MV NTV version orders for their Special Request Shopping Service and they figured out that more people would buy it if they listed it on their website. Well, it's a good marketing strategy for them. I'm sure I'm not the only one who bought it despite the price

And I'm really glad I got to buy it too~ /my wallet is bleeding but who cares?XD/

I have a question. I don't understand, whats the different with this version NTV and the other 3 version of Yamada Ryosuke singles?

And why is it much more expensive? Why EMS only and can I send it toghether with my other versions?
I've read the description on CDjapan but don't really understand everything. Its probably because my english isn't that good, its not my first language.

I want to buy it but I first want to know more about this version.

Thanks very much :)

The NTV version is only available through the NTV shop website and can only be ordered if you have a Japanese address that they could send the CD to. They are not releasing this one to the music stores. The difference is that the NTV version has the "Chinoiserie" version of Asia no Yoru and it contains pictures of Yamada during the Kindaichi filming. Those are not in the other 3 versions.

It's more expensive because CDJapan has to order it from the NTV shop, have it delivered to their office in Japan, and once they receive it they will ship the CD to you. The CD itself costs only 1150yen. The shipping from NTV to CDJapan costs 630yen and CDJapan charges an additional service fee of 1500yen for buying it at the NTV shop for you. So that's a total of 3280yen plus the cost of EMS shipping from CDJ to you.

As for the EMS-shipping only, I'm not sure why we can't ship it another way either. But I think it's because EMS is more secure. If they send it through SAL or Airmail, there's always a possibility that the parcel will get lost and if that happens they'll have a problem because the CD might not be available at NTV anymore. ><

By the way, you can order it with the other versions of Mystery Virgin but you can only ship everything through EMS.

I hope I helped you out. If there's anything you still don't understand, just ask and I'll try my best to answer it for you. :D

Thanks very much. Your a big help, I understand it better now :)

So cool that CDjapan has giving us the option to also buy this editon. I've heared from this sort off edtion from other artists and sometimes I was kinda sad we international fans couldn't buy it. A happy fan here ;)

I have 2 question.

Whats the Chinoiserie version of Asia no Yoru? I have been a HSJfan for about 4 years now, but its the first time I hear there's a Chinoiserie version. Or am I forgetting something.

On CDjapan it states that for this version it may take up to 1-2 weeks after the release date. Does this mean until its shipped? Or it can take so much time until it arrives home? I really want to support Yamada and I want that the purchase wil be counted in the first week oricon sales. If this version isn't supporting Yamada during his first week than I think I'm not going to let it ship with the other singles but with some later pre-orders that I've already made.

My explaination is probably a little weird, I hope you understand what I'm trying to say here.

Hi~ I'm sorry it took me a while to reply but i had problems logging in to livejournal. :/

Anyway, the Chinoserie version is a new version and it's exclusive to the NTV version of the single. I have no idea how it'll sound like either but according to wikipedia, "Chinoserie" supposedly signifies "Chinese-esque", and it "refers to a recurring theme in European artistic styles since the seventeenth century, which reflect Chinese artistic influences". So yeah, I guess it's gonna be like an artistic Chinese version of Asia no Yoru. ><

And yeah, according to CDJ, it'll take 1-2 weeks until it's shipped out. But from my experience, CDJapan always ships them out a lot earlier than the timeframe they state on the ordering page.

As for Oricon, I'm not sure either. >< I think all pre-orders are counted in the first week of sales but I don't have any proof that they are so I'm afraid I'm not gonna be of much help to you regarding this. :(

Btw, your explanation isn't weird at all, so don't worry about it.:D

Thanks very much :)

I'm also having trouble with livejournal. On your page I get on with ease but from other like for example Arama they didn't I can seem to see the page. Also with some other livejournal accounts I'm having trouble.

This sort of problem with livejounal I have that sometimes I thought the problem was my computer but if your also having problems than it must be Livejournal.

When I wrote my last comment I was really sleepy and then I know that my enlgish sentence can be weird, not correct more. Just like it is now really late for me. Let just say that then my self-confidens is going down to write in Enlish.

I just had the chance to see johnny's countdown ^^ Not in good quality but I'm glad someone uploaded on youtube. I found it really good this countdown.

A happy new year and best wishes for 2013 :)
