Got my Division oh-geez-we're-going-to-need-more-money-to-ship-this-to-you notice from CDJapan. One word - OUCH. (I wonder how many fangirls, when they saw that bill, canceled their limited editions and ordered the regular instead? I didn't - I swallowed hard and paid it.)

Look, I have the Limited Editions of every Gaze album from NIL to Toxic. (Thank you, dumping-my-collection sales!) Judging by them, we're going to get something gorgeous and unique, and I'm sure the album itself will be fantastic. But, damn, I've sunk a freaking mint into this thing. Looks like my music purchases for the rest of the year are scaled back to bands I deem "essential" - SCREW, BORN, Kra. (Alice Nine and GazettE are in their own category - "above and beyond." Oh, and is this above and beyond). Oh, and the new, possibly last Versailles album as well, though I may have to go "normal edition" on that.

Therefore, for all the money we've put into this album, we, the fangirls should get something extra in return. Namely, naked centerfolds in the middle of the album booklet. Of all five guys. Full monty, nothing covered up.

Can't you just see an Uruha centerfold with him perched at the edge of a big, sunken tub rimmed with tea candles, dripping wet (including hair), with a wonderfully pouty look on his face? Or Kai posed on the hood of a sportscar, in a way that shows off his arms, his chest and his . . . hugeness?

Yep, yep, we deserve extra for paying extra. Make it so, PSC. We're waiting with nosebleed mops in hand. ~_^

(In all seriousness, I'm very excited about the release of this thing being less than a week away - despite the damage to my wallet!)

I am so tempted to buy it but sfdsvjlhgcofdh... It is eeeexpensiiiive beyond measure. Ok and it weighs 1,5 kg and the dimensions were huge like 30 cm x something and something. HUGE. Why. ;--;

I guess Ruki wanted the size of his CD package to compensate for his lack of height. XD

Seriously, how the hell are we going to STORE this damn thing? Toxic already destroyed the symmetry of my CD shelf.

And it's expensive, all right. Hugely so. Probably the most expensive entertainment item I've ever invested in that wasn't a complete-series box set or a piece of hardware.

LOL, might be just the cause. XD

I remember paying huge monies for the RCE dvd, something like 80e. It felt bad, because the live wasn't THAT fantastic and the extra material was boring as hell. x___x After that I've been very cautious to buy anything I'm not sure I really, really want.
I haven't bought Toxic or DIM, because I'm tardy and herp and derp, but wtf is up with them making weird sized albums? |D

Still tempted tho. x____X But the poster is butt-ugly. I don't even put up posters on my walls, so it'd be a waste to send it to me in the first place.

And I was to say NAKED CENTERFOLDS YES PLZ? I was thinking something like this: http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/007/7/a/rent_a_boy_by_akita_sensei-d4ln7h7.png

From what I understand, if you order it from Yes Asia, it doesn't include the poster, and you can request the poster not be sent with the CD Japan version. (Which I didn't know until I had paid the full revised shipping price. -_-)

WHOA! Now THAT is a centerfold! Yes, that's an excellent model for one! XD
Aug. 24th, 2012 08:01 pm (UTC)
*sobs* Don't remind me that it's potentially Versailles' last album! That said, I'm just getting the regular edition - as much as I love them, the limited edition just comes with a whole load of PVs I already own. Rather a poor show considering how much effort went into their last album. ;_;

Anyway, I love the idea of naked centerfolds! :D I'm assuming that Reita would still keep the noseband on?
Aug. 25th, 2012 03:36 am (UTC)
Ah, I don't feel so bad about not getting the limited edition, then. (Geez, hell of a thing to put on your alleged last album. You'd thing they'd do something more special).

Oh, yes, Reita would definitely keep the noseband! Can't leave him without his most stylish accessory. I see his nude layout involving a bed covered in leather - maybe the noseband would match.

*nods* Considering that the last album had that extra special edition with the gorgeous artbook? :S I don't know... I get the impression that this hiatus is happening because at least one member is bored and that's why they can't be bothered producing any new material. (My money's on Hizaki, he's been spending a lot of time playing with Kaya recently.) They didn't even do any PVs for their latest two singles!

Ahhh, I love it! XD Question is how, do we convince them to actually do this?
Aug. 25th, 2012 07:35 pm (UTC)
Hookay, I don't feel bad about having ordered the "normal" edition of the last couple of singles, either. Wow. When a band isn't even doing PVs . . . yeah, that's a sign something is wrong. Maybe they took on too much by doing that TV series project and burned out. -_-

How do we convince them? I'd say "angry fangirl mob threatening to not buy their next album" might actually do the trick in and of itself. XD Otherwise, offer bribes, which would be different for each person - crates of booze for Uruha, crates of mayonnaise for Kai, crates of Orangina for Ruki . . .

I am so so glad I order my stuff from YesAsia! Free shipping above a certain amount of money, so... no changes or extra charges for me! They don't give extras like the poster, but in this case, I don't mind that at all. (I'm not impressed by whatI saw of the poster, to be honest. Pixelated boys is not top of my list...)

But I do like the idea of naked centerfolds! Oh yesssss! :D And Ruki lying on a bed of rose petals, with glitter...
Aug. 25th, 2012 03:42 am (UTC)
I heard that about YesAsia! I had mixed results with them in the past, though - sometimes I got my stuff right away, others I didn't get it for more than a month after I ordered it. If any one of my favorite acts ever puts out something that OMGHUGE again, though, I think I'm going to take my chances with them. (The poster was definitely not on my priority list when I ordered the CD. I don't think I've put up a single poster or postcard I got from CD Japan as an extra).

Oooh, I like the rose petals and glitter idea! But I like aleksiina_26's idea of putting him on a pile of furs wearing just his gloves, too. That does it - because this whole enormous, expensive package was Ruki's idea, he has to do TWO naked centerfolds!
Aug. 24th, 2012 09:08 pm (UTC)
I just got my notice...*foul expletive*

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! You already cost me 105$!!!! Stupid piece of crap expensive hobbies *mutters* fucking hot jrockers making me max my credit card *mumbles*

Seriously, I almost fainted. If Alice Nine has some secret projects in the works I'm fucked. We should demand those centerfolds, for that kind of money we more than earned it -__- I'm more along the lines of a sweaty, grimy set up for Kai for some reason...hosing himself down after working on said car, artfully swiped grease on his arms and face, maybe? And Ruki wearing just his gloves on a pile of furs...I could keep going all day XD such a pervert...

It better be worth the extra good god...

As far as I know, the only thing they MAY have in the works is the Scarlet single. I don't think we need to worry about an album for awhile, unless they decide to do a GazettE and say, "Hey, the hell with releasing singles! We're just going to do one huge, super-deluxe album package!" And, you know what? If they do that, then THEY have to do the naked centerfolds! XD

Oooh, I like your Kai concept - very hot! And the Ruki one is droolworthy. (Like I said before, Ruki should have to do TWO naked centerfolds as penance for coming up with this thing).

Nobody's come up with one for Aoi yet, I see. ~_^
Aug. 25th, 2012 08:57 am (UTC)
Aoi's being neglected? D: *thinks* Umm... Can I be a hopeless pervert and demand him in a kimono? I just want him in something where he can be separated from that bloody hat of his. XD
Aug. 25th, 2012 07:38 pm (UTC)
Kimono? You mean, just drape it over his shoulders and let it hang open so you can see the good? Oooh, I like this idea! The very fact that it's a traditional garment gives it a bit of extra-naughtiness that suits Aoi to a T. XD
Aug. 26th, 2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
Omg unf! Agreed 100% on this idea...they really have to do this XD
Aug. 25th, 2012 05:38 am (UTC)
Actually the increase isn't compulsory. You now what makes your package cost 30 dollars more? The poster. A lot of people cancelled their orders because they didn't know they could actually reply to the notice with 'thanks a lot but I DON'T WANT THE POSTER change my shipping to the one i initially chose :D'!
That's what I did and the price went back to 98 dollars. Easy peasy. :)
Aug. 25th, 2012 07:40 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow, I didn't know that before I paid the increased charge! Well, damn. I'll know next time - then again, the next time the put out something this huge, I may very well be ordering from YesAsia instead. (Or Alice Nine puts out something this huge - I can just see Ruki superfan Shou seeing the Division package and saying, "Oh, wow, this is cool, I want us to do something like this!")
