As always, items are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you want them, don't hesitate! As always, we accept payment via PayPal in Japanese yen only.

Also, a reminder for new readers who may not be familiar with This is NOT Greatest Shopping service:

- We can order you items from the Buck-Tick Web Shop, and package them in such a way as to avoid customs duties in your country. We also offer cheaper shipping options than the B-T web shop if you're short on cash.

- We take requests. If there is an item you want that we don't have in stock, send us an email (themadaristocrat at gmail) and ask for it, and we will find it for you at a competitive price. It doesn't have to be Buck-Tick related. We source all types of CDs, DVDs, magazines, manga, video games, t-shirts, etc.

- We can help you get tickets to Japanese concerts! If you don't speak Japanese, no worries - just email us with the details and we will take care of everything for you. Tickets will be sent by courier to your country, or delivered directly to your accommodation in Japan, whichever you prefer.

And now, on to the items...


Ai no Wakusei Explosion Live DVD

This is the live DVD of Sakurai Atsushi's solo concert at NHK Hall in 2004.  Reportedly, this concert was what inspired Imai to create the concept for the 13kai wa Gekkou album, though as the stage sets are minimal, I feel sure that Imai must have been inspired by Sakurai's performance itself. Sakurai is joined onstage by an all-star backup band, including Fujii Maki (formerly of Soft Ballet) on synth, Jake Cloudchair (formerly of Guniw Tools, currently of The Mortal fame) on guitar, Miyo Ken (also of The Mortal fame) on guitar, and guest appearances by Satou Taiji (Theater Brook) and Cube Juice. In addition to his own solo works, Sakurai performs covers of David Bowie's "Space Oddity," Sawada Kenji's "Love -Dakishimetai," and Yuming's "Amaoto wa Chopin no Shirabe."  The DVD contains the full concert, plus a live music video for "Wakusei -Rebirth," and a bonus image gallery. It comes in a smoke grey hard plastic case.  This is the original pressing of this video and the only available version of this concert on DVD, as the Ai no Wakusei Collector's Box that was released in September contains Blu-Ray only...and it's only going to get rarer as the time passes, so if you want it, the time is now. Very rare and out of print. Region 2. A must have for any collector and true treasure for any fan of Mr. Sakurai, including non-fangirl fans - it's a great show and a beautiful video.
11100 yen.

Fish Tanker's Only Tour 2008 Pamphlet

This softcover pamphlet is the size of a standard DVD case and contains 64 pages of full-color studio photos of the band members, some of which have been combined with graphics produced by GRADELIC studio. This tour was launched partly in support of the Heaven single, so half the photos feature the band members in white outfits and white hair - it's a very interesting look which they've never replicated before or since, so if you love your silver foxes, this is the pamphlet for you! The pages were difficult to photograph so I apologize for the flash flares in some of the sample photos, but obviously no flash flares will be present in real life. Aside from slightly worn corners, the pamphlet is in perfect condition. This pamphlet was only available for purchase by Fish Tank members at the venues on the tour, and is consequently extremely rare. If you want it, this may be your only chance to get it! 6000 yen.


Sexy Stream Liner Tour Pamphlet

Softcover, LP sized tour pamphlet from the Sexy Stream Liner era contains 38 pages of glossy full-color photos of the band members. Great condition, rare and out of print. 2000 yen.
