    It's so generous of you that you want to share it!
    Well....
    Do you allow me to put it on my YT channel? If you post the ISO or something here I'll convert and upload it.
    But only with UR permission!

    Has anyone ever ordered from Amazon Global? Maybe I'm late to the party but I thought I'd add that as of... recently? you can order from, say Amazon JP, even if you're from somewhere else (in English too). I just nabbed DOOM's 'Killing Field... +4' for 3,000 yen (incl shipping, paid the 500yen customs charge upfront) and it took two days to get here through DHL. I'm actually really impressed. I think it's only directly from Amazon (so no marketplace sellers and the like) but if anyone wants to avoid the risk of getting dodgy copies of music/waiting for customs charges/long delivery dates etc I'd recommend it. I might end up buying the RE Soft Ballet releases too.

    (also sorry if this is in the wrong thread, thought I'd add it here since it's basically The shopping thread ::meev::)

    I'm actually going to try out a "Global" order for a DVD from the UK just to see how it goes.
    EDIT: in fact, I have now duly done so.

    The seller sells a lot of other rare stuff too.
    Either he's a long time collector selling his stuff, or he's a professional faker.
    I need SADNESS AND DUNNO IF ITS REAL OR FAKE :'( :'(

    It's not the picture, it's the seller. I've seen them around forever selling tons of "ultimate rarities" that no one ever buys.
    In general anyone selling supposed demo tapes of '80s japametal is probably a fraud.

    I personally wouldn't spend money on anything they're selling unless it was for something not available online and buying a bootleg was the only way to spring it out into the wild.

    Damn the same seller put up three other MM demo tapes.
    I have a hard time believing they're real.
    Well spotted flowers!

    Zodiac demo tapes remastered CD:
    https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/c695040368
    Didn't know this was limited to only 100 copies but I guess that shouldn't be too surprising.

    Hirasawa "tokyo paranesian" live pamphlet from 1994:
    https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/w262117415
    Pretty steep, especially considering it looks a bit beat-up, but you don't see these often.

    "hyp No. 5" - a goldmine of band profiles from 1995
