I know music is copyrighted. I know you monitor sites such as Tumblr and delete music that belongs to you. However, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve discovered new songs that I’ve fallen in love with because someone posted it online.
Americans may not be your target audience but we enjoy and buy your music too. I’ve spent over $1000 dollars just on Japan iTunes cards. I also have shelves filled with Japanese CDs.
I’m hoping you see the advantages of having your music on social media sites.
Bought another 10000 JPY iTunes card for $96.00. That’s the best price so far. It took 45 minutes for them to send my code. Their order process is different than before. They confirm your order by texting your phone with a code to complete your order.
FYI it might take longer if your place your order after normal business hours. Google “japan time” to give you an idea.
This CD arrived from Amazon Japan. It’s condition was listed as “acceptable” although it was in surprisingly good shape. No tears on the artwork. This was a rental and the obi was taped to the cover. There’s a sticker on the artwork that I’m afraid to remove because it might damage the artwork. The CD itself is in excellent condition–it’s hard to believe this was a rental.
I bought this CD for “Kimi no Hitomi ni Koishiteru” (Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You). It’s Shohjo-tai’s 1986 rendition of the Frankie Valli song. There’s also a 1987 version of this song on their P-CAN album which sounds more 80s dance.
Just purchased a ¥10000 on Japan Codes for $99.00. Thats the best price they’ve offered in the past few years. Two years ago I paid $141 for the same. My iTunes code was sent 3 minutes after my purchase. Another first.
I’ve wondered why when I type in “animuze” on google you don’t get pre-search results. As soon as I finish typing the whole word the search results go blank (until you click enter). That’s because google has deemed content related to “animuze” as offensive. As a test google “puppy.” Google will autocomplete your search with each keystroke. Try the same with “bitch.”
Funimation hosted their anime no Hulu (known for their obligatory adverts) which was an immediate turnoff for me. Since then I discovered Funimation is hosting anime themselves. A paid membership will get rid of commercials. Barakamon was the first show I added to my queue. I’ve also added other shows not available on Crunchyroll like Psycho-pass, Dangan Ronpa, and To aru Kagaku no Railgun.
