For fans overseas who don’t want to jump through the hoops of ordering through a forwarding service, CDJapan is offering a very limited preorder of Maimi’s upcoming Blu-ray “Ways”. As of this writing, only 10 copies remain available, and while it’ll end up costing you less to order through CDJapan when fees for buying/forwarding services from other websites are factored in, the CDJapan listing mentions nothing about the bonus photo card with a hand-written message.
If you’re interested in getting the bonus as well, the deadline for preorder at e-LineUP! is right around the corner. The preorder period ends November 19th at 11:59PM Japan time (9:59AM Eastern Standard Time) and you can place an order using a service like Tenso, which I have used several times in the past and again for this order.
And if for some reason you need a last-minute push to place an order, here again is the digest:
Following in the tradition of Erina Mano’s “Xmas ga Machikirenai” in 2012 and S/mileage’s “Christmas Dokuban Yattemo ee ka?” in 2013, Maimi will be hosting a Christmas special titled “℃-ute Yajima Maimi no Maimi~ Xmas!” for CRK Radio Kansai. The special will be recorded on December 15th and will broadcast on Christmas Eve from 8PM to 9PM JST on USTREAM.
The listing for Maimi’s Blu-ray release on the e-LineUP! website has been updated with the cover (pictured above) and the title, “Ways”. The deadline for orders is Wednesday, November 19th at 11:59PM Japan time. Overseas fans can place their order via Tenso, which I myself used for this release as well. And if you somehow missed it, here’s the digest for “Ways”:
