I purchased pic related from Amazon Japan (and holy shit it arrived at my front door in like 2 days with the standard $5 shipping) and it is absolutely amazing. I do have one complaint however and that is the cover. The jacket is fine but the cover is like two ply and has the tendency to curve inward when in use and look wavy when closed. Is this just a Japanese book thing? I also got Vol 34 and same thing there. Any /a/nons with some moon book experience?

This is what it looks like.

pull it

Does it take any special measures to order from amazon.jp, or do you just use your gaijin credit card and address?
>>
>>138783459
I can do that but then it curves at the end almost as if the cover is a different size
>>
>>138783518
Gaijin card and address. When you go to Amazon.co.jp, there's an "In English" link which translates the menus but not the items. When you put in your address, select international address.

Note that this doesn't work for every purchase, but I've also noticed how quickly it ships when it does.

The watercolors are absolutely gorgeous.

>reasonable prces (used) and shipping charges
>real deal courier shipping too, none of that post office bullshit
Well, shit. I never imagined it would be that easy. You may have just doomed another poor soul to shameless buyfaggotry.

I love Dragon Ball, but I can't bring myself to bring myself to spend hundreds of dollars on something that I already have on my computer for free. Not to mention the fact that I can't even read Japanese. Maybe I'll buy volume 16 sometime.

>>138784271
No, most of Dragon Ball is in black and white.

So you bought a new one. Yes it is a Japanese book thing. Most books have covers like that. It's not like paperback. Sometimes one of the cover, narrow one (it's called obi), is missing when you buy a used book. I think most people keep them on, but some people took them off or put a plastic cover over them like pic.

Why does the paper quality in Japanese editions of manga feel different compared to western releases? I like it though, feels smoother.
>>
>>138787167
Thanks you anon. That's interesting. I'm going to look up more about this obi
>>
>>138787167
The actual cover itself is two ply. The two pages in the middle of the jacket are inseparable and are the cover.

Oh I see. I guess it's a thing for Dragon Ball kanzen-ban. Ordinal manga books don't have such two-ply front cover.
