C78: Break out the shopping list, Doujincore open for business!

Comiket 78 is exactly one weekend away, have you decided which artists will get your hard-earned money? If not, better get on it quick since Doujincore are running their usual doujin group import operation as we speak. The order form was made public today and you have until June 13th to send in your list/money. This DIY business is run by some good Canadian kids, so they get Don Cherry's stamp of approval as well as mine. By the way, the "denpa watchlist" on your right was recently updated with the denpa-related C78 offerings, but it is by no means complete (let us know what we're forgetting!!!).

While their shipping/commission fees may seem a little high at first sight, don't forget this may be your only chance to score some C78-exclusive items... not to mention you won't have to stand in line for hours on end. For the record, I am considering the following items: MOSAIC.WAV 「全世界的タッチパネル」, t+pazolite feat. リズナ 「Honey I Scream!」, おでんぱ☆スタジオ 「おでんぱ☆夏祭り」, ななひら 「ゴキゲン77゚↑」, ALBATROSICKS 「PARAMOUNT FEVER !!!!!!!!!!11111」 and possibly their new manga book.

Oh right, you're supposed to stick to CDs with doujincore, but if you really want something else and are ready to pay extra for over-sized shipping, then try and get in touch with them. That said, there is an other option which I've just recently uncovered: Japan Shopping Assistance Service are also going to C78. Their prices are about the same as doujincore's but they don't have an item limit or type restriction. However, I have NOT USED THEM in the past, so in no way is this website endorsing JSAS. You're on your own, but feel free to share your experience if you do end up using them.

UPDATE: doujincore will only buy from the "east"/doujin wing, so forget about that MOSAIC.WAV single or the new とろ美/あゆ/ARM mini-album (OMFG). However I have contacted with JSAS and may end up giving them a try just for these two items.
