November 2011 Chapters
First and foremost, a quick reminder that we’re still selling LSK doujin and calendars to all countries outside of North America. For those of you in NA, we’ve unfortunately had a delay with the US shipment, so it might be another month or so before we’re (finally) able to open ordering.
In related news, we were looking into some Yu Wo merchandise and managed to find merchants for the two following products: the ½ Prince Art Book and LSK Card Packs! We know that most fans who don’t speak Chinese are unable to gain access to such merchandise, so we’re going to start offering them through our store; we’ll basically act as a middleman. Below are the descriptions:
- ARTIST: Xiao Qiang (小强)
- DESCRIPTION: 25+ full color pages.
- PRICE: $15.00 USD
- SHIPPING: To be decided (due to the weight and size of the books, it may be as much as $10)
- ARTIST: Yuán Qì Chuàng Jiè (元气创界)
- DESCRIPTION: 12 full color plastic cards, 9cm by 5.2cm
- PRICE: $6.00 USD
- SHIPPING: To be decided (shouldn’t be more than $3-4).
We are currently opening pre-ordering for both of these. The first five orders will get 10% off. Pre-ordering will only be open for November, at which point we’ll start accepting payments and shipping everything. We will not order another batch as this is just something we are doing in celebration of the winter holidays, so if you want one or both we recommend that you order now. Ordering will be done through our store. Because we don’t have the products yet, we can’t give a solid estimate on what shipping will be; it depends mainly on the size and weight of the packages. We will give an exact number closer to the end of the month—be warned, however, that shipping for the art book could be as much as $10 thanks to its size. Also, we might not be able to fulfill all the orders as we haven’t contact the merchants yet, hence we aren’t sure of the amount of merchandises that we could get in. People who orders earlier will have precedence. Alright…I think I have sufficiently warns all of you =p.
Again, orders will not be shipped until December.
Next up, we’re excited about all the feedback we’ve been getting for the tournament! We got a bunch of votes on the name, and the final winner is The “This is Not a Beauty Pageant” Tournament! Within the next few days a separate post will kick off the start of the tournament, including a full explanation on how things will go down.
And finally, a few things to note: The first volume of LSK will be up as a PDF later this month and we should have the bare-bones version of the next few HP volumes up soon as well. Over at the Staff Blog, Lucathia, one of our translators, has started to translate and post a few of Yu Wo’s plurks; basically a collection of her thoughts on random things while writing. It’s an interesting insight into who she is, so I definitely recommend that you check it out! You can find it either through the Staff Blog link in the menu bar or here.
