Do you like the atmosphere/experience of living there?

I'd be constantly worried if I took them anywhere partcularly urban, so natural environments are better for me. That said, I do want to take Patchouli to all sorts of libraries.

>> No.16322123

Not really. I mean, sure it's convenient to have everything I need within walking or cycling distance, but it isn't like I leave the house much anyway. Streets are dirty and the people all walk around depressed, or at least seem that way. I'm not any better with my hood and headphones on, but that's how I adapted. Better to immerse myself in music than the obnoxiousness of the city. The air quality is bad and the atmosphere is generally unfriendly. It feels tight. Cities are so dense it makes me sick sometimes.

There are a lot of forests, but they're all pretty far away. And a lot of people happen to walk through them as chance would have it, since there are so many people. I don't know where I would take my fumos, if anywhere at all. No matter where I go there will always be someone else there. It's very ironic, how the people so disconnected and minding their own business in their solitary pursuit are the ones intruding my privacy. I wouldn't be able to find an empty, peaceful field to take my Reimu, when she arrives of course.

At least there are a lot of libraries, so Patchy should be happy.

This year after browsing /fumo/ for a while I finally started collecting fumos. I bought four of my five favorite Touhous (the one missing, Nitori, has no fumo). I am waiting warmly for the February release of Kasen and etc. I am incredibly pleased with starting to collect fumos, and can't wait for more soft.

Thank you /fumo/ for always providing nice, easy content and cute pictures. They have improved my general mood a lot since I got them since they're so pleasant to look at and hug. I only regret not buying more!

How likely are each of the girls from this batch to get another release?
I need help deciding whether I should get anyone because, much like a discussion earlier in the thread, I'm not a huge fan of these girls.

>> No.16350268

If you have any doubt, buy them now. If you order on amiami, you won't have to pay until february.

>> No.16350532

This is already Koishi, Satori, and Flan's second run. If they get a re-release it probably won't be a for a while. Like all okatu merch, if you try to get them later, it's going to hurt your wallet a lot more. Mokou before re-release was ridiculously rare and expensive. Ran right now is impossible to find in good condition for cheap.

Personally I really wanted Kasen and Koishi, but sold myself on Satori and Flan too, so I could get Koishi's sister and if they (hopefully) release another Remi I'll have her sister too.

Ultimately it's your money but personally I'm just going to bite the bullet every time. When I first got into fumos, Kokoro was new. I only got Marisa in that batch since she was my favorite, and I regret not getting Kokoro. It was the same with Koishi, but Gift bailed me out.

>> No.16350694

I know, but money is uncertain at the moment. I'd love to get everyone eventually, so I'm trying to plan ahead.

Regret is something I hate, and I already regret not getting into fumos earlier. I just missed out on Raymoo from the last batch, but I did manage to bag Marisa.

Thank you both for your responses!
I think I'll jump in and get two of them at least, I should be able to afford that. Kasen and Flan maybe.

>I'm paranoid of buying used out of fear of getting a bootleg or one in poor condition
I only recently discovered softness and bought nine girls via Buyee from YAJ and Amazon JP, with great success. Read the machine-translated descriptions carefully and you can usually get a good understanding of the condition. I found that most of the sellers are upfront and describe the conditions she has been stored in (including smoking/non-smoking house, dark room, display shelf, etc.) and will often include photos of rare blemishes (even tiny, if any at all); my Suwako's hat had a few marks on it, that weren't mentioned, but I was able to clean it quite easily. I found that sellers who use a templated description with five or so active auctions for different fumos, and 500-1000 good feedback, were very good. Stay away from any auctions that just have a single photo from Gift or Ami. Buyee fees are much cheaper for Amazon JP than YAJ but there are less girls available and they can be more expensive.

I canceled once on a preorder that I couldn't afford without problem, I don't have a ton of order history with them maybe 15 or so.

>> No.16374194

Damn. So if I choose registered then it'll be taken back to the post office?

>> No.16374204

I've had RSAL packages left with no signature required - you can always sign a note with the tracking number and leave it for the postman

>> No.16374230

No, you see I don't want them to leave it outside my house because it will be stolen 100%. Even my neighbours are shady. I'll just order registered so I can track and hopefully plan to be at home for the delivery.

Personally I would say bite the bullet and get Koishi for now, I did exactly that because I'm still holding onto hope of girls I want getting another release. There's always other chances of getting both girls, but it's best to get them while you know they're cheap.

I've cancelled orders on AmiAmi before and I'm not banned. I could only see them banning you if it is your very first order, but even that is unlikely.

Which shipping method do you guys use at amiami?
I'm thinking i should use SAL registered since it seems to be safe and i can't afford anything very expensive

>> No.16374500

I always used unregistered SAL and never had any problems of the package being lost/stolen. You would honestly be fine with either one. The only time I would use registered sal or even EMS would be if my order was $100 or more.

Airmail has always been reliable for me, stuff usually arrives in a week or less.

>> No.16374577

Thanks for the info. If you don't mind, I'd like to know your thoughts on this one. The description's mention of "smoker's home" and the particularly low starting price rubs me the wrong way.
Last I checked, there were also a couple available for around the same price on suruga, but they all fit the bill for what you said to avoid.

That sounds like a good idea, but the Yuyuko I'm looking at is also going for a low price, at least based on what I've read in these threads. I'm still conflicted about which would be a better opportunity to jump on, but I'm leaning more towards Koishi, I think. Thanks for the advice.

>smoker's home
YW. I saw that seller's listings for some other girls and was also disappointed to see the note about smoking. Personally, I would avoid that one; I've been fortunate to have always lived in smoke-free homes and few of my friends or family have smoked over the years, so I'm very sensitive to the smell.
That seller must be dumping their connection because they also have a Sanae, Cirno, Alice (which is the one that I originally looked at), Reimu, Marissa, Suwako, Patchy and Youmu. I guess you need to weigh up how much you want her at a good price, at the possible expense of her smelling. She's already up to ¥5,250 and will likely go higher.

Suruga-ya is a different ballgame. I've never bought from there, so I'm not sure what constitutes a good listing. That said, I think they're a buyer/seller (like Mandrake), rather than an auction site. You would probably have to assume that they've been opened/cuddled but they do seem to include photos of blemishes - see this listing for Meiling http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/646075785001.. They had a deka Cirno, for a not hideous price, a little while back but I procrastinated for too long and missed it.

>> No.16375453

Why can't they just make all of them? Why not also produce more of the original 3?

I just ordered a Koishi (with badge) from eBay, even though I preordered her last month from Otaku Mode. I can't cancel the preorder but the delivery address can be changed, so I would like somebody else to feel her comfort instead of having two to myself. If anyone has questions, feel free to email me at metalmoon@hotmail.co.uk

>> No.16377454

That is understandable. It is hard not to resist Koishi.

>> No.16377494

For me it's hard to resist all of them. Koishi will be my fifth girl since I started last July, and I'm already beginning to appreciate Yuyuko's design more.

>> No.16377796

Update: she can only be sent somewhere else in the UK, otherwise I would have to wait for her to arrive, then relabel and send her internationally.

>> No.16377815

How much was she?

>> No.16377820

£50 total, via Airmail.

>> No.16378295

You should be able to cancel the order, or just not pay for it if you don't value your amiami account.

>> No.16378309

Otaku Mode don't let you cancel preorders.

>> No.16378314

Oh, I read over that you ordered her from there, for some stupid reason. Too much fluff in my head.

>> No.16378770

I should have added that the third photo does show the quality check paper still in the bag, so if the seller has kept her in the bag for the entire time then she may have no or minimal smell and you might just get a great bargain. (yes, I realise the paper could have been retained whilst she was out of the bag)

You could also consider Amazon JP - https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B003K4K3DM
The used one for ¥8,120 sounds good:
>◆ There is no conspicuous dirt etc, it is in a beautiful state
>◆ It is put in crystal pack for product protection
Plus it has free domestic shipping and is fulfilled by Amazon. Buyee fees from YAJ will be ~¥500 plus whatever the seller charges for domestic shipping, which could easily add yet another ¥500-¥1,000 (based on what I've previously been charged); Buyee doesn't charge the ¥200 transfer or 5% buying fee for Amazon.

I would never buy a soft girl from a smoker.

I bought a sega genesis (mega drive) from a smoker once. It still reeks of smoke and I bought it 12 years ago.

Take the warnings seriously. Don't buy a fumo from a smoker.
