Oh my gosh, the adrenaline rush I got for being able to successfully pre-order Arashi's Arafes DVD on CDJapan still has a lingering afterglow on me~sparkles

But despite all the anxiety I felt about my order not going through, I somehow managed to secure my own copy~!!

Last time this happened was back in June 2010 when I was pre-ordering Arashi's BNMF album and the amount of fangirls on CDJapan overloaded their website to the point where their server crashed. I even posted an LJ entry then as well [HEREloveletter

I was pretty much shaking the computer screen and raging internally when the server crashed again as it was authenticating my credit card, so I was immensely relieved when I got my confirmation e-mail soon after that hearts

Being an Arashi fan causes so much stress and anxiety when Limited Edition merchandise are available for pre-order, then it's a battle to the death as all of us are vying for the LE moneybag

Indeed! All that anxiety to gain access to their server, and then getting our cards authenticated, and finally waiting for the confirmation email!

I was freaking out on twitter XD

It's a battle that can only be won by the most tenacious!

Indeed, but I'm always secretly happy when Arashi fans overload the CDJapan server :3

There was an e-mail sent to your inbox on CDJapan, then shortly afterwards the battle began to get the DVD :3

From what I see, it's completely sold out for the time being. There may be a restock on YA, but it's doubtful~

seems i did get the notification on Arafes DVD from CDJapan in my email..
and the reason y i cannot see the dvd in the list is because the naming is not started with Arashi but Arafes when searching..
thankfully i managed to pre-ordered my copy thanks to ur entry..

Congrats! :D This time I ordered my copy on CDJapan as well with Paypal, but everything went perfectly fine(I got my confirmation e-mail, too). I don't want to wait 1 or 2 month for my ARAFES DVD to arrive...right after Christmas(and the release of course) would be perfect! I can hardly say why German customs need that long...yesterday my POPCORN LE finally arrived, but my Halloween Junky Orchestra LE isn't here yet. I ordered it right before the release date (October 17th),though, and I thought I could use it for Halloween, but...ugh. Never had any problems with CDJapan before.

got mine! :) *so happy*
it's already completely sold out at cdjapan O_O is there no non-first press or did I just miss it?

@kurarekurari: I'm living in germany too, and still waiting for my popcorn cd >
corlee1289: KYAAA~!corlee1289 on November 15th, 2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
YAAAAY~! Omedetou!!

I saw! It's completely sold out on all the other websites~

I don't know if there's an RE version, usually they're available for PO simultaneously...

On a random note: KYAAA~!! MOKONA!! I love Clamp in Wonderland II <3
nikkininnikkinin on November 24th, 2012 02:39 pm (UTC)
thanks^^ hehe, yeah I like mokona too and TRC and xxxholic xD and so on... <3

but lucky, seems like arafes RE went online a bit later only ^^ still that was strange.

Woah~ My Popcorn LE arrived yesterday for me as well, but that's because I chose the slower SAL version :3

At least you'll be getting yours sooner rather than later!!

Oh my, that still hasn't arrived yet? I wonder why it's taking so long for it to be shipped?

GAAAAAHHHH!!!! >_< I tried so many times last night but I wasn't able to!!! T_T *cries in the corner* I have to wait to see if I can find other places to buy the Limited First Press Edition
*cries some more*

JAMIE!! It's been ages and so very long~!!


IF you want, I can let you have my other pre-order that I did.

I pre-ordered off of CDJapan and YesAsia because I knew that one of my LJ friends wouldn't have been able to secure a copy of it :3

Let me know if you're interested in it :3
