If they have all the items in stock they will ship in about 1 day I think. They use EMS to foreign destinations. It takes about 3-4 days to the U.S. I believe shipping cost for 5 discs (like all 5 BoB) discs is either 1680 yen or a bit more than that.

Discs that are not in stock but available for "order" will typically take some 7-10 days before they can ship. Some low availability discs may take longer than that.

I've had a lot of good experiences ordering from HMV.

So do I. Thats where I recently got my BoB shipment from. I believe it was around $156 US including shipping. Took over a week due to one of the discs needing to be ordered. Ordered I think the 2nd week of January and had them in my hands the first week of Feb.

I think I got my BoB set in about 3 days. I was so suprised. Unfortunetly they are out of stock of 3 and 4. I'm still waiting for those.

How do you guys figure out how to order through them?

I'm interested in Equilibrium, but I couldn't follow the Japanese text on the pages.

There is usually an english link around the left side of the page. On some pages it's at the top and some pages it's at the bottom. LOL, I ordered Equilibrium yesterday and went to check on it today and couldn't find it. After about 20 minutes and the help section, apparently I somehow didn't finish ordering it cause it never showed in my order history and help section also states you should get an email, which I didn't get. So I had to order it again, and it went through this time. Glad I caught that now rather than a week

Ah, thanks - that does make it a bit easier.

I can handle French, Spanish and a little German, but the Kanji was . . . . well, Greek to me.

One more question: The titles are listed as "Normal Order" or "24 Hr". I'm guessing "Normal Order" means In Stock?

Yes Normal means "in stock to ship immediately".

Hmm... interesting HD-DVDs on the HMV Jp site.

Anybody know if the those "Virtual Trip" disks are any good ?

The aerial view of nighttime Tokyo sounds like it might be cool.

Sorry, I have no idea - how much is 3,948 Yen in US$, and much extra is is for shipping ?

I notice that each HD-DVD shows 2 prices - I'm assuming that first is normal price and second is sale price ?

Thx
