I've been in touch with J-list about carrying more gyaru magazines. I've specifically asked about Ranzuki, Jelly, Blenda, and (of course) I Love Mama. My reasoning is much ado about Amazon Japan. I LOVE Amazon. I hate Amazon Japan and it's mostly because the shipping is oh so pricey.
To give you an idea, consider the info below.
|Shipping & Handling:||USD 37.15|
Two Magazines (same pub)
|Shipping & Handling:||USD 40.86|
In both cases, I used I Love Mama as a reference. That's what I planned to buy (09/10 and 10/10).
J-list carries multiple gyaru mags priced between $8.50 and $12 with shipping at $9.60*
J-list also has subscriptions. Using Egg as an example (since it's the cheapest at a one buy rate of $8.50):
Monthly revolving subscription: $7/mo
Annual (pre-paid) subscription: $130/yr
So hopefully J-list agrees to carry these additional magazines. I will let you all know what the decision is as soon as they get back to me. I hope they say yes because (for 1 mag) the Amazon shipping alone is about double the price of ordering from J-list.
* 9.60 is for Airmail (7-10 days).
