So, I Ordered Hentai From Japan

So, I Ordered Hentai From Japan

I wasn’t drunk or anything, it was three in the morning, just coming off of a six game losing streak in League of Legends so I decided to order hentai from Japan.

Feeling kinda shitty at three in the morning, I really should have been sleeping but instead I was browsing the works of Kenji Kishizuka (I’m kind of a big fan). One thing lead to another and through the power of Google image search I was brought to the amazon.jp store where I could order honest to goodness physical copies of his works.

The nondescript package

Now, at this point I should mention that I don’t live in America and I’ve had a rough history of ordering stuff online. Most sites won’t even ship to my country and the ones that do just gore you to death with shipping costs. You wouldn’t believe how much the stars had to align just for me to get my arcade stick. My Uncle was going on a trip to visit the US, at that time a sale was going on for a Hori arcade stick for $100 normally priced $150. Of course Amazon wouldn’t ship it to my country so I had to ship it to the address that uncle was staying at in the US and have him bring it for me when he returned.

Size comparisons

So when I see these books by Kenji Kishizuka right there ready for the ordering I decided to go ahead and see if it would work and if they would charge an eye and a testicle for shipping. Surprisingly everything went through smoothly. I ordered two books coming up to about $20. My shipping address and phone number were accepted – keep in mind that my country doesn’t have a zip code (most of the world doesn’t) and I’ve had a history of being turned away from many sites that won’t even ship outside the US. Most surprisingly of all, the shipping cost came up to about $10. Reasonable enough considering the books were coming from Japan after all. I submitted, paid and got a quick email that my order would arrive in four days. Four days!?

Even after ordering I was highly skeptical. I once ordered a downloadable game from Gamefly and my order was quickly canceled because I didn’t have a US address. I was expecting something similar but nope, four days later I checked at the post office and yup my package was there. For comparison I’ve ordered stuff like games from Ebay and contact lenses from 1800 Contacts (while they do ship to my country the shipping costs are only for the desperate) and it would take up to two to four weeks for it to arrive. I guess porn from Japan is a higher priority.

Riveting

As I got home and opened my gift to myself about to enjoy some quality alone time, my heart sank when I realized I ordered some quality erotic novels filled with steamy Japanese text instead of erotic manga filled with faptastic artwork. Sure the cover is done by Kenji Kishizuka and there are a handful of illustrations inside but still, you know the mileage on these books are extremely limited, at least until I learn Japanese….

Great illustrations but only 0.2% of the entire book

I can’t be too mad though. I like Kenji Kishizuka’s work and I’m glad I was able to show my appreciation with my wallet. The ordering process was quick and easy, shipping costs was reasonable and shipping time was very fast. If I were to review the service I’d give it a five out of five and would use it again, I’d just have to make sure I know what I’m actually ordering before I order it.

Still fits in your hand for easy use

So the moral of the story I guess would be to support the artist you appreciate. They made something you enjoyed, it’s only fair. Besides doing so may be even easier than you think

    Sounds like that time I just wanted a lesbian grinding scene on tap and bought a slew of DVD’s boasting lez sex, but none of them had the grinding. That was before I had my own internet, of course, and now life is good-OH MY GOD THAT’S A REAL HORSE MOUNTING HER MOMMY GET ME OUT OF HERE!

    Just out of curiosity, is the language of the country you live portuguese? Because it fits perfectly with the dificulties of importing anything…
