Hello everyone! Time for another blog post, maybe not really lolita-related, but it sure makes me happy!
Today when I was in the bathroom, I heard doors of a car slide open, and I thought it might have been the delivery man with a package! Sadly, what I heard wasn't the delivery man, but the painting company nextdoors T-T
Though, half an hour later, my mom called upstairs that a package had arrived... from Japan! I knew that could only be one thing, my きらきらキラー Limited Editon CD! I've ordered the new Kyary single somewhere in May, as a gift to myself. I didn't realize that so many people missed the release, while I ordered it as a bit of a joke, haha. I knew there were only 7777 copies available around all of Japan, but didn't realize it sold out so quicky. I ordered without being in a hurry at all!
I ordered the CD via CDJapan, as that's the first link I came across and I had heard about it before. It seemed to be a good service and overall, I'm happy with the order! The website is easy to use and very clear, and I was able to place my order fairly quickly! I got an order comfirmation within minutes and I also got an email when my order was shipped. Even though the page said the CD released on the 11th of June (which is my birthday) it was already shipped on the 9th of june!
|The box! It looks fairly big, doesn't it? It looks so professional!|
It arrived fairly quickly, eight days after shipping, which is really nice considering I chose the cheapest shipping option (which was 800円). The package came to me with a scratches, but it was still taped shut and nothing on the inside was harmed! Which may have been because half of the box was filled with green packaging paper, but still.
|All that green paper! I also got a piece of paper describing the order I placed, it's the white note.|
|Thanks CDJapan, I didn't know that yet!|
As mentioned, the CD was wrapped in green packaging paper, but also in bubblewrap so it was protected really well! And there were some 'Fragile' stamps on the box so the customs would treat it well. But!! Now on to the contents of the (in comparison to the content) huge-ass box!
|It also came covered in the little vinyl bag I was promised!|
The bag and CD cover are bigger than I thought they would be, really! Normally when you buy CDs the cover is pretty small but this cover is 18 cm x 18 cm!
So, here are the actual contents of the vinyl bag! Included in the bag were the CD (the picture with the blue background is it's cover), a sparkly sticker, a poster and a raffle ticket to win a prize. You can only enter with a Japanese adress though, so I hope my friend Mashiro knows of one!
|The back of the CD cover!|
On the back of the cover are the names of the two songs (which are Kira Kira Killer and Kira Kira Killer Extended mix) and some information about the recording studio and producers. On the back of the cardboard where the CD is attached to are the lyrics to Kira Kira Killer! That was a nice surprise.
I'm really really happy that CDJapan shipped it out so fast and that it arrived so fast and in this good of a state (even with such cheap shipping!). I've spend only about €18,- on this CD and I'm not dissappointed! So at least I only have to wait for my Fantastic Dolly OTKs now ;3;
