Bulk Doujinshi Buying for Resale - Design Contest   
09:48am 07/04/2005
  A couple of AI-TEN news items today.

1st of all: Convention Season is Coming~~~~

For those small businesses or individuals interested in selling doujinshi at their dealers booths, AI-TEN would like to extend an offer of our [b]bulk buying service[/b].

Preowned Doujinshi can be purchased for resale by series (at our discretion, you do not get to specify more than series) in bundles of 50. Our regular charge for doujinshi is $10 a book + shipping (regular air). But under our bulk offer, we will sell books to businesses at a rate of $6 + $85 total shipping (book-rate air) per pack. (approx. $8.00 per book in breakdown)

Unless otherwise requested: packs will most likely be a mix of gen, yaoi, yuri, and ocaisional hentai material (hentai runs a bit expensive even resale).

Multiple series may be requested: ie. "50% Full Metal Alchemist, 50% Naruto". Multiple packs may be purchased, but payment for large orders is required in advance.

We can also provide doujinshi flyers at no extra charge for decorating your booth.

Serious inquiries to shounenaiten@yahoo.co.jp

2nd:

AI-TEN has donated prizes to our friends at dokidoki for their [b]Design contest[/b]. All of the prizes are yaoi/shounen ai themed. If you have interest in joining in, please check out the contest webpage:

Apologies To Those Waiting   
01:55pm 21/02/2005
  AI-TEN is just finishing up a pretty rough spot: most of our staff was knocked out by Finals Week at Japanese University, then a holiday fell on one of our two regular weekly shipping days ("School Foundation Day" T_T; ), then tsurara was overloaded by a much-needed Obsession recruit drive.

We'd like to thank everyone for their patience in waiting a few days longer than usual for their items, email replies or photos of their doujinshi search results.

Today marks the beginning of a very long Spring Vacation for all at AI-TEN!! So we're working hard to get back in the swing of things ^_~/

Today also marks the end of our doujinshi search period. We will post the final results on the 22nd. So please check back then to claim your items.

Once again, We'd like to thank everyone for their support and patience!!

Love,
-AI-TEN

Opening for doujinshi Request Feb 7th   
06:37pm 01/02/2005
  ( here's a one week head-start for our friends ^_^/ )

For a limited time, AI-TEN staff will again be accepting special orders on doujinshi.

We will search for doujin based on artist, pairing, and/or series and sell our findings to you for a flat fee of $10 per book (with a few exceptions in the case of extremely thick or expensive books). We will provide as many books as you specify, up to 10 for first-time customers and up to 30 for returning customers.

If you have pulled out of finders-deals with us in the past, please refrain from requesting.

Shipping will be an additional $7.50 (air) for the first book + $2 for each book after. There will also be a $2 over-size charge in the case of books larger than B5 size or with more than 60 pages. Sea mail is available on request for large orders at a cost of bit less.

You will have a chance to review the cover images of any books you buy for you BEFORE you are billed. Any books you reject will be sold on ebay or offered to those on garagesale japan at a reduced price (at which point, you will not be able to purchase them yourself).

Payment by paypal or cash via registered mail only. Japanese Yen or US $ (please contact us for correct exchange information).

post inquiries here, send via email ( shounenaiten(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)jp ), or try AIM ~ hikari naki yami :)

Please do not request any more books than you can afford to pay for in the case that you accept ALL of them. Also please note that, as your pile grows, it will be your responsibility to tell us when to stop looking (we do expect you to purchase at least SOME of the books we find for you).

~*~*~Damage Control~*~*~   
04:00pm 16/01/2005
  If you recieve a product from us that is damaged in mailing please detail the damage in a comment here as well as your country.

It has come to our attention that some countries are using rubber bands to hold the mailers together which can cause some damage to the spines on single-packed books.

We are concerned about developing better shipping methods but would like to keep costs as low as possible given the already high price of international shipping. Still, our priority is to ship our products in the highest condition!! So please help us to identify any problems that occur. As a result, countries with shipping practices that may damage books will be handled differently in the future (ex. cardboard inserts)-- but with the possible raise of shipping cost due to added weight.

As always, we apologize for any damages in shipping m(_ _)m

Revision of Shipping Fees - Future Shipping & Handling Cost Chart   
01:27pm 11/01/2005
  Beginning Jan 11th, 2004 (today) AI-TEN has raised shipping costs a bit to make up for our own rising costs.

All fees apply to USA, Asia and Europe:

Here is a breakdown of the new fees for ~doujinshi~ and ~manga~
---------------------------------------------------------------

~One book (under 50 pages) - $7.50
~additional book charge - $2.00(ea)
~oversize charge - $2.00 (ea)


magazine/artbook rates
-------------------------------------
~one book (up to 130 pages) - $10.50
~additional book charge - $5.00(ea)
~oversize charge - $2.00 (ea)


other rates
-------------------------
please inquire in person


We apologize for the raise, but unless we cover all the shipping charges sufficiently, we will continue to take a small loss on every order...

On the up-side, if we can find a good supplier of bulk packing supplies in Japan, these fees may drop again in the near future (by about $0.50 per order)

Please bear with us. We know International shipping is expensive and we're thankful for your support in spite of this fact m(_ _)m

Reguards,
AI-TEN
