So, You Want to Order Lala Magazine from Amazon Japan…

Are you excited about the last chapters of “Ouran?”  Do you want to get some of that Ouran loot?  Well, here’s some helpful hints on how to get some!

Direct links to Lala 8 and Lala 9 (pre-order):

Here’s a link to the “English” version of their website.

Link:  http://www.amazon.co.jp/In-English/b?ie=UTF8&node=1094656

There’s still A LOT of Japanese, but it’s manageable (the links and buttons are the same configuration as the Amazon US website, so if needed, just refer to the Amazon site in your country to figure out what the buttons and links are.).

Hints:
The little shopping cart icon is, indeed, your shopping cart.
  When you get into your shopping cart, look on the top left for a link to put the page in English again.  You will need to choose International shipping.  From here forward, there should be enough English to get you through the purchase.  If it turns back into Japanese, look to the top left again for the English link.

The cost of shipping is horrendous.  Shipping to the US is $30 for the first item and $3 per item after.  With this in mind, I usually order several items to spread the initial shipping cost  across multiple items.  My suggestion in this cases is to order both Lala 8 and 9 at the same time.  They will immediately ship Lala 8 and then Lala 9 will come when it’s released (even though they say they will ship at the same time).  The shipping will be $33 for both items instead of two separate $30 shipping fees.  I would encourage you to wait until Lala 10 becomes available for pre-order to spread the cost of shipping further ($36 for three magazines), but it’s very likely that Lala 8 will sell out soon.  The nice thing about this is that it’s Fedex 2-day shipping, so your wait will not be long🙂.

I hope this helps those of you who want to buy Lala magazine directly from Japan and I will continue to post the direct links to the magazines as the pre-orders become available.

Oh, and a gentle warning…if you do purchase Lala magazine, as tempting as it may be, don’t post the raw.  The Japanese publishers are *aggro* right now and you could get in a lot of trouble if you post the raw.
