Greetings from Japan on this Friday evening. My wife and I are going to go see the hit Miyazaki movie, Mononoke-hime (Princess of Beasts?). We always go on Fridays, since it’s Ladies’ Night at the big American-style Cinema-o-rama in Ota, and my wife can get in for just $10. I, of course, pay the full price of $18 for myself. Living in Japan has its drawbacks, but we’re happy to have a theatre that has showings past 7 pm…
I have good news and bad news. The good news is that we have two new Final Fantasy action figures by Bandai, Legendary Soldier Sephiroth and Vincent Valentine, and they look really cool. The bad news is that we have received official word that the figures are out of production and will not be coming in. So everyone who ordered the Tifa Lockhard, Cloud and Aerith Gainsborough action figures and is waiting for our backorder to come in is going to be disappointed. Everyone who was waiting for the figures will have received an email from me, but if you have any questions, please let me know. I apologize for not being able to get these for you — but that is Japan for you. FF was released here in Japan about 6 months ago, which is why the products for it are disappearing now. Eva fans should note that Evangelion toys and other items will start disappearing now, so if you like, say, the deluxe Ayanami Rei dolls we have on the anime/toys page
We have a lot of nice items in stock and on our various pages for the weekend, so please take a look at them and let me know how we can serve you. Remember to check out the calendars pages (as well as the anime, JPOP and magazines pages, where some of the specialty calendars have been put to reduce load time), since the official deadline is tomorrow!
Thanks for supporting J-List. We’ll see you on the web page!
