Ok, I see.

I hope I will be able to get it, and that HMV HK will have stock.

assuming if there's stock on alan's , the status will be changed to closed as soon as it's being shipped out & HMV HK will email you a notification on this

if you have a PayPal a/c , it's better to buy VoE from ebay or though my Taiwanese friend though me since I got a copy myself from him the very day when the album was released in Taiwan
Hmm... if HMV HK doesn't have stock of it, I'll probably have to buy from ebay or through your friend. I shall wait and see on my order status.

well hopefully someone can answer this question , it will benefit the both of us

btw Tracy I have asked my Taiwanese friend Cliff to reserve a copy of alan's Voice of EARTH for you . He has 3 spare copies on his end so in case you want to cancel the order that you placed at HMV HK , let me know via PM & I will give you his email contact

^ I've tried recently but it seems that they mostly sell the standard size 1 or the slim case. Some of the shop even like have no idea how the double jewel case looks like =.='' My only mistake is I didnt brought the case as example that time.

bummer T_T

I'm quite sure if such 'fat' cases are made to be sold here , it will make things much easier for everyone cos they're very & so not easy to be replaced at all

HMV HK didn't end up having spare dual cases in stock =\ But they're offered to send 2 single cd cases so I can replace the cracked outer.

They said that as long as the middle bit is intact, the regular CD case backs will to the trick, you just gotta flip them around to replace the broken cover.

What seller did you get that CD from Iyreen? o__o I've only had one CD with a crack from the sellers I use so far...

oh you're lucky in that HMV HK replied back to you with regards to the cases

someone should start to open a shop & just specialise in selling those 'fat' cd cases , I will be their 1st customer

And me no2!

I'm surprised that outside of my Jpop CDs I never see the fatter cases getting used =/ Every CD in the stores here is a single jewel case, or sometimes has the thin plastic "page" for you to place the second disc in. I usally get worried when taking them out because they're very thin and sometimes break. Just use fat cases already!

same for me , I think Japan's the only country to utilise all these fat cd cases ?

even Eng / Chinese CDs are not packaged in this manner . I don't know for KPop though

it has its pros & cons . The pro's that it looked more 'stand out' while the bad bad thing's that when comes to storage space in the house , it can be quite a pain

that & also it's not easy to be replaced when it's damaged internally/externally

*points to Koda's BEST BOUNCE & LOVERS & ayumi's Memorial address*

both of them have been smashed up internally for quite sometime at my end . I do hope that in future I can replace the cases somehow or another

Singles aren't really all that great in the fat cases (my copies of BLUE BIRD, Rule/Sparkle and t2m look silly next to all the CDonly copies) but for albums there's nothing better.

I've been to music stores before looking for them and the guys there think it's a great idea. I think the music industry just goes with whatever's cheaper which sucks for me, because every western album I've ever had has a crack in it somewhere, I always break bits off taking the discs out!

I don't have any KPop CDs so I can't comment either

What seller did you get that CD from Iyreen? o__o I've only had one CD with a crack from the sellers I use so far...
I bought from 1 ebay seller. he only use 1 layer bubble wrap with PLAIN envelope (not the envelope with bubble wrap inside) and he use SAL method to send the cd.. The cd case splited into two and some part of it are smashed into pieces.. lucky it didnt damage the cd

Eek, that's horrible! Be careful to check seller ratings, the stars, that they have on feedback before you buy....they can be a good indication of packing ability

My mum ordered some books on ebay and they came in a thin envelope that had fallen apart by the time it reached her! I'm glad it wasn't raining yesterday

Guys,sorry if this has been discussed later but what's happened with YesAsia rising all the prices and where did the free shipping go?

It's just depressing what happened to me yesterday T_T

Well I only have 1 ayu album (well only 1 overall xD) and I finally collected 38 USD and then I decided to order MY STORY CD + DVD with & single (if my father wanted to buy it as an extra for me xD) and then I come to YesAsia and see that they rised the price and I was like oh well it doesn't matter.And then my father agreed to order it and I was so happy (and he even let me order & with it)!But then YesAsia said that there is 13 USD shipping on standard service for it....Then my father decided not to buy it after all because together it would be around 80 USD.He told me to wait...

But seriously what's happened to all that?

@ Chiharo

my question to you's what item/s in the mix you planned to order ? because certain items you're not entitled to their free shipping policy

http://www.yesasia.com/global/custom...on-answer.html

YesAsia used to be able to allow customers to purchase US$25 worth of stuff to enjoy its free shipping policy but not anymore
