FMA artbook update  
Sorry for the barrage of posts.
It is done. I have ordered the artbooks. Why so soon?
Due to the popularity of the artbook, it was only available in limited quantities, so I ordered ASAP. I was able to snag 14 of them. That's the most I was able to order. This means everybody who ordered an artbook *before* I stopped taking orders has a copy.

To the people who have not paid, I will be sending out confirmation emails. If you do not want the artbook, please tell me so other people who were not able to order have the chance to get the copy.

If you want the artbook and did not make the cut email me at sukiyaki_is_yummy@hotmail.com. I have a few alternatives to getting the artbook at around the same price but which will take a while longer.

Sooo, since I asked after you stopped, I'm guess mine was a no-go? ;___; Sadness. I'll try emailing you about the alternative methods though. ^__^

So sorry!
I wasn't even able to get an artbook for myself so I'm in the same boat as you.

... so does this means we'll have to order for ourselves now? where is this site anyway?

You could wait and see if anybody cancels.
Alternatives:
There's 1 copy available at www.jpqueen.com and they ship anywhere. If you don't catch it they'll probably get another one in stock soon. Kinokuniya has it as well and you could order from them.
Or you could wait and email me back to see if enough people are interested in ordering (there are quite a few already). If so, I can make another order but it will take awhile.

I think that amazon.co.jp restricted the number of artbooks I could order in one shipment so the best I could do was 14. Again, I am so sorry to disappoint you.

No no it's fine, I live up in Canada anyway and I was thinking along the line of ordering for other people who live up here as well, or we can swap or something of there are Canadians on your list. So I take it since you ordered from amazon that's the best deal in shipping?

That depends on how many people you are ordering for and what shipping you use. If you are only 4 and you use express, insured shipping, the international shipping fees are bad.
If you are a lot, it's not so bad. For example, I paid about Y15,000 ($141.50) in shipping and handling fees for the order but since we were a lot, it came out to about Y600 ($5.67) a person.
What you could do is use economy shipping (much cheaper) but it's a lot slower and uninsured.

No! You're on the list! No worries.
Do you still want it?
I haven't sent the confirmation emails out yet because I'm trying to do Graph Theory homework (and not doing very well).

@_@ Since I ordered after, I'm guessing I didn't get one. T-T Too bad. I might just go with one of the alternatives, then, if I didn't make it. *damns Alaska yet again*
