[UPDATE - FALSE ALARM] Avex Group Places Export Ban

Post by zoupzuop2 » Feb 15th, '17, 05:12

UPDATE: It does appear there was an update the day after I posted this, that clarifies Avex Mode and Avex Trax are not affected by this ban. Apologies for the alarmism and mixup.

From the update: CDJapan has clarified both through their Weibo account, English website, and through e-mail contact with customers that Avex’s product ban has only affected products under the Avex Pictures label. Other branches of Avex Group are not affected, such as those under avex trax artist– which include Kamen Rider soundtracks and singles.

However, the Tokusatsu Network staff and other customers have attempted to make purchases of other Avex products outside of Avex Pictures through Amazon Japan, and Amazon appears to be blanket banning all Avex products.

Amazon Japan has not made any clarifying updates on the nature of their sales of Avex Group products.

As of this update, Avex Group still has not made an official statement regarding the export ban.

I'm pretty sure the ban only applies to Avex Pictures so SEB may be left untouched, for now. That being said, I am not even surprised, I'm willing to bet this is something they have wanted to do for a while now, just never gotten to it for who knows why and now they got it. The decision makers must be real xenophobic, even going as far as to alienate overseas Japanese. Good job I say.

Remember, SUPER EUROBEAT is avex trax
Sure. But it bans ANY CDs from the SEB Presents Initial D. Because that's Avex Mode. And Avex Mode are anime soundtracks. Gotta use a forwarder for Initial Eurobeat soundtracks now!

Unfortunately, while Avex Trax is not banned per se, I wouldn't be surprised if it was pushed to the whole Avex Group.

Luckily you can find most of the Initial D songs on other albums except for a decent handful of exclusive songs.

Otaku Republic exports any CD or media from Japan via their request form.

It's how I got all my We Love TechPara, Raver's Nest, Toho Eurobeat, and some Super Eurobeat albums that are out of print.

ebay's also a good option via some sellers stationed in Japan.

--- --- ---

Here's the roundabout method us people that've been buying doujinshi off Comimark for the past 5 or so years have done it →

・ Find a Japanese store that sells the album eg. Tsutaya

・ Ask Otaku Republic to get it via proxy for you.

It's a bit inconvenient, but it's not the end of the world ~ just a different way.

And pay a premium.
Find a personal forwarder and SAVE a lot of cash. You just need to be patient. Rain knows of who I'm talking about (and you know too xiao).

If you use Amazon Japan, you're shit out of luck cause they've banned everything including SEBs. CDJapan and HMV appear to be ok though.

Like I said, I think it's only a matter of time before Avex drops the ban hammer on all of their catalog.

I care but Avex gonna do what Avex gonna do. And no point in getting it too twisted since there places other than Amazon to purchase the albums.
