I believe you need to sign for it via DHL.

The only place that has ever accepted with no trouble has been Koreandvds.com. I was hoping that it was just YesAsia. However, It looks like prepaid credit cards are almost useless. I'll probably get my $61 back in about 2 months. LOL oh well no box set for me.
Why don't you drop them an email (all non-english amazons use [email protected](.xx) as English contact/query adress), asking them what's up? Mine's still shown as 'Shipping soon', so I sent them this (edit in your own order date and number, and put them in the header as well):
Re: Order #: 249-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx, ordered 2004/02/20.

Hello!

I've noticed that my order for the Japanese Kill Bill LE, Order #: 249-249-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx
is still in 'Shipping soon' stage, while it's come to my attention that many people who ordered more than a month later than I did (I preordered 2004/02/20) have had theirs shipped (and regardless of which shipping method paid for).
Is there any reason for this, or is it just luck of the draw?

Regards,
Xxx xxxx

It may just be just luck of of the draw because I ordered mine on 2/20 also and it's been shipped. Or maybe their going by alphabetical order.

And no, no tracking number but I did email them for one.
They didn't e-mail it to me, either. It was on the page with all the details regarding the order.

As my surname starts with Alb, I highly doubt the alphabetical theory.

Yeah, I doubt it, too. Thought I'd just throw it in there. Actually, I think it's just random. I'm sure yours will ship eventually. It just sucks that it hasn't yet.

All I have there (number wise) is my order number and costs.

Don't worry, even though it says DHL it will come through the post office. At least, that is the way it works if you chose the "international economy shipping". It comes from Japan to their California facility via DHL and from there it comes via USPS priority.

They definitely aren't going by alphabetical order, as my last name starts with 'Z' and mine shipped yesterday night.

OK that makes sense. I ordered it Express though, so hopefully it's still the same procedure.

I think it might just be sent through USPS Express Overnight once it gets to the shores...maybe.

My DHL tracking info says that it has arrived at the facility in Tokyo and is now "on hold". What the heck is "on hold"?

Some guy in Japan has some of these in hand now, and selling them on ebay (at $200 each ). His auction includes pics of the actual final product with obi strip, and shows the separately packaged "suit rider case" (or whatever the hell its called). Oh well, at least he's throwing in a bunch of other stuff (of course those extras didn't cost him anything anyway). Just thought people would be interested in an "in hand" pic (unopened though)

I second that, I've ordered UK things that have shipped DHL, and have arrived in the same manner. Hopefully since I'm spitting distance from a major international airport and postal facility, I can get it a touch sooner, but we'll see.

it includes a making of the anime sequence but it's all in japanese without subs

some featurette about the movie. no commentary on that. just scenes

the anime sketches

photo gallery

trailers
cast and crew bio and interviews

running time is listed as 113 mins.

i only browsed thru the specs, so some of the features may be missing or wrong

I was afraid of that, but it will still be worth a watch.

What about the subtitles? Is it all or nothing english subs or did they include one that only english subs the japanese speaking parts?

i live in japan, but i ordered from towerrecords.jp. the suit comes with the box, no matter where you ordered from.
i also saw a couple of sets at some local stores. so it's not as rare as some people on ebay may wish
