*blink* The drawbacks to living "overseas"

Okay, so I was bad today at lunchtime. I decided to pop in on a whim onto Meikido's site. (For those who don't know, it's a used doujinshi seller). I first ran across Meikido... 6? more? years ago when I was seriously into Yakumo Tatsu and YamiMatsu and bought a bunch of doujinshi from them. So, going back after not having made a purchase from them for a few years was a bit weird. The site's obviously changed a bit over the years, although fundamentally it's the same. What surprised me was that I couldn't order certain items. They feature "new" doujinshi for certain circles and they have a new section for Ghost Hunt. (Gee, I wonder what I was looking at and why...) So I decided to pick up one by Rosemoon (a doujinshi-ka that I like), as well as Transistor Idol. TI has a lot of good fanart on the web and also write stuffs, but surprisingly I couldn't order their things new. I could only purchase what they had available used. (I double checked by logging out and checking the site, and logging in and checking.) This also means I couldn't order one of their doujinshi but I didn't mind that so much (it was a Lin x Mai story). Sadly, they didn't have things by most of the doujinshi-ka that I *really* want the books to (Seraphita's Rinko, Traumwelt's Tenca, Sweet Plan's Honami, and many many more). >.<

Shall see how this order goes. They've always been really good about their online orders, so I don't expect anything unexpected... unless CanadaPost gets weird about it. Rosemoon's doujinshi is apparently 308 pgs and not for those under 18. ^^;
