Hmm... Does that shipping price exclude or include the tax? Because I know from Japan, it's not usually in the price itself, you have to figure out yourself.

Like, if a manga cost 100 Yen, you pay 108 Yen.
No, it's not tax. Here's what the order looks like.

Hmm, then I don't know.

Am I odd, because I' don't like these shirts?

GNG one's frontside image of Gin is not one of my favorites, there is too much text, and the backside image has too much mirrored images (background bears, Akakabuto, Ben, Benizakura, Bemu).

Yamato one has nice frontside image, but again, too much text, and the backside has this huge battleship dominating the image, and I'm not a fan of machinery.

I may consider of buying these at some point (for the sake of collecting, haha), if they stay available, and I manage to get used to the images.

For the shipping cost all of you are asking about: it's one set price, and it's the highest international price listed on that page. They don't have a way with the order form to specify which country, just "international".

I'm inclined to agree with Coffiedog on this one! The pattern makes sense between your orders. Entirely plausible they just haven't updated their shipping cost list on that page.

The 180yen is only $1.60 XD

Edit RE Regnants comment: So... the shipping cost list is pointless?

This site is a headache.

Pretty much, I don't think it's been updated in a while to reflect a flat rate international shipping fee *shrugs* still not a bad shipping price for not having to go through a proxy so I'm ok with it XD

(also, my shirts should arrive by the end of the week I think)

AWESOME! Thank you so much for doing a video, I'm glad I pre-ordered the large size shirts because I like the loose fit too. I didn't realise there were shiny bits either!

Ergh I can't wait until the end of August now. I think if they fit as nice as yours I'll likely consider ordering more to be honest, the quality looks excellent.

Also the embed is working for me... maybe it was a glitch?

Are we really at all surprised, lol. That's ridiculous for one shirt. If it was for both, it might be worth it.

For me buying two shirts directly it was $100 ($40 each + $20 shipping). For this one shirt you are literally paying $60 for shipping XD

Got the GNG and Yamato shirts today! :D They arrived safely and super quick considering they were mailed out just a few days ago. The shirts are great, they are soft and comfortable and the graphics are high quality! I heard that Japanese sizes were smaller so I expected the shirts to fit snugly but turns out they are actually big on me lol but that's fine. I'll probably only wear them for special occasions and for now I have them on display^^

Also...they included stickers with some very graphic NSFW images >O< Caught me off guard so thought I'd give a heads up to others.

Nice!! ^_^

Though, that doesn't surprice me... Even if this is not of Goraku GNG and SSY are from like GDW and forward, Goraku itself has some of that in it in ways. But good to give heads up of it!
