    I looked back and how 2014 ended up. All told, my strategy of watching a lot less and importing less did cut back on spending… a little. It would have been more except for two big factors.

    Video was ▼22% JPY, ▼28% USD (yay good exchange rates)
    Music was ▼5% JPY, ▼12% USD
    Other was ▲86% JPY, ▲69% USD

    Total was ▼8.6% JPY, ▼15.8% USD

    So despite watching half as many anime, total spending on all import-related stuff – the vast majority of which is related to my anime viewing with Vocaloid as the only significant exception – was down less than 9%… but Sakura Trick (BDs, CDs, manga) is a big part of that. It accounts for nearly a fifth of my *entire* import spending in 2014. The other factor was category “Other”, which is primarily manga but also some figures, calendars, etc. It was up massively, nearly double in JPY. Overall this is the first time my total spending has dropped.

    If I’d only bought one copy of all things Sakura Trick, the decline would be sharper. 2015 I expect will see another drop. Though by any measure I’m still spending waaaaaaaaay too much on imports.

    Weird and meaningless coincidence, but total spending on DVD/BDs this year was only ¥29 away from the 2011 total. A 0.003% difference.

      Cdjapan never listed YnS v5 so I made my first Amazon order in 16 months. Added in Switch Witch manga v2 which Cdjapan listed as out of print. Would have added Danna ga Nani Bd as well but gave up waiting for it to be back in stock. Of course it was back the day my order shipped.

      No problem with DHL, arrived well.

      YnS v5 originally had an ost cd but they combined the three ost cds into 2 so this volume is just a Bluray in a digipak and clearcase, nothing more.

      Chaika Avenging Battle v2 comes with a short bonus novel! I was surprised by it but pleased as several volumes from S1 had bonus novels including the first one so when there was no novel with V1/box of Avenging Battle I was a bit disappointed. Faith restored!

    With all the ranking data you’re scraping and updating I’m sure this is far from the first thing on your mind but I my first package for February arrived today so when you have a chance I guess we could use a February thread. Thanks!
