CDs from Japan held in U.S. Customs

My CDs from Japan should have arrived 3 days ago. Instead, they’re sitting in U.S. Customs. I haven’t had this happen before. I called Customs at (877) 227-5511 today. They said my package can be held for 45 days. She said since it was CDs there shouldn’t be a problem. I asked what happens if I haven’t received them after 45 days. She said contact the U.S. Postal Service.

I searched the Internet and one Customs person said, “shipments just sit at the cargo location without being examined or inspected, especially air shipments.” So Customs people get off your lazy asses and do your job. Get off the Internet! Get off facebook! Stop reading this blog and clear my package!

Anime CDs from Japan

I received 7 CDs from Tenso. This was my largest shipment so far. Tenso shipping cost $55 (that’s about $8 per CD).

Figuring out which CDs were shipped from Amazon to Tenso is confusing if the merchant doesn’t list a cost on the package. As long as they list the package price I can match that with my orders.

My order included two 3″ CD snap-packs. You can snap the plastic in half and make a mini CD jewel case (see picture below). I think that could also damage my artwork so I’m not going to attempt it.

My favorite CD in this shipment has to be the OST for Aria the Origination–very soothing and relaxing.
