Today I’m going to share with you the huuuuuge Japanese magazine haul I did over the past month and a half. I didn’t buy all of these at the exact same time, but since it was all close together I decided to show you guys!
The first round of magazines I purchased were from Amazon Japan, and it was the first time I had ever bought anything from it before. These particular issues were fulfilled by Amazon, so they shipped very quickly, which made me happy, haha.
I was also really impressed with the packaging! They seal the magazines in plastic onto a piece of cardboard, which is then put into the box so that they don’t move around and get bent during shipping!
I got: Ray Nov. 2015, Non-no Jan. 2016, and Non-no Dec. 2015
The next round of magazines I purchased at Kinokuniya and Book Off! I kiiiinda maybe went overboard and bought 5 at one time, but I say it’s ok cause two were only $1! So cheap! But that’s cause they’re really old, but they were issues that I was missing in my collection, so I was really happy to see them there.
From Book Off I got: Non-no Oct. 2014, Ray May 2014 (Both for a dollar!)
From Kinokuniya I got: Ray, Ray Feb. 2016, More Feb 2016
This issue of More came with a pair of grey tights from 17°C!
After using Amazon Japan successfully the first time, I got a little magazine-crazy and decided to buy some older issues from late 2015 (cause I had missed their release before) from a third-party seller that offered international shipping! The shipping was kinda expensive, but since several of the magazines were only 1 yen, I figured it was ok, haha.
I got: Non-no Sept. 2015, Oct. 2015, Nov. 2015
Can you tell that Non-no and Ray are my favorite? Hahaha!
More recently I also bought 2 more that were fulfilled by Amazon.
I got: Ray Jan. 2016 and Non-no Mar. 2016
So that’s it for my magazine haul! Can you tell that I might have a magazine addiction? Hahaha. I know this is quite excessive, but I collect these magazines and display them, so that’s why I buy so many. And although I bought so much recently, I know I will probably buy more within the next few months.
Do you guys read Japanese magazines or collect other stuff? Let me know in the comments!
