    Also I had no idea Flower Records finally started selling their stuff on yahoo auctions. Their website is so difficult to navigate and their email address used to send me errors sporadically hahaha

    You didn't know? They've been doing it for years and years, all those "centerfield" accounts are theirs.

    Why do so many places have multiple accounts, anyway? Some limit on the number of items you can have for sale?

    I don't know if Yahoo!Japan has limits on free listings and on selling but since they are so much like eBay they probably do. Sometimes companies have multiple accounts for buying purposes, in case they get blocked by sellers for reasons. Third party buyers and shippers do this. And some do this because they are scum and get a lot of bad feedback, so when one account looks terrible, use another one.

    Just thought another reason which applies to Japan. Some businesses have multiple stores in various locations. Each store may have it's own id to list items at their location. I don't know if it applies in this case, but with other businesses, yes.

    True, but Flower Record I can definitely tell you has only the one hole-in-the-wall location in Nakano ::batsu::
    I think Closet Child does have separate accounts for its various locations, on the other hand.

    I got the pre-MM Mana picture!
    Because the seller made it 5800JPY instead of 10 000JPY

    Grackt is a very old meme. I think it originated from a misspelling on a Chinese bootleg disc, iirc.

    Omfg I didn't even know those DVDs existed!! I want them so bad now ::weepy::

    How hard is it to buy stuff from that website from overseas (and with no japanese knowledge)? Is this a shopping service kind of situation?

    Shopping service, if they haven't been banned by Mercari. Some still can do it.
