Any reputable DVD retailers for Japanese versions (meaning better) of US releases?

Like "Last Action Hero" Superbit, etc.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Amazon Japan are the best... they tend to discount a lot more than your average Japanese store and their shipping is very reasonable. Also, they do have instructions for setting up your account in English.

If the thought of navigating a Japanese language website is a bit daunting and you don't mind paying more for your DVDs and shipping, then there is always CD-Japan.

But first give Amazon a go and see how you manage... they really are the best.

Hmm. Amazon may be cheaper to Australia, but not to North America. The last DVD I ordered from CDJapan cost 1,200yen airmail to the United States. They also have a discount points system of 300yen for the first order and varying amounts (depending on the total amount spent) for each successive order.

Amazon.co.jp charge 900yen surface mail (which takes forever) for a DVD to North America and 2,000yen airmail.

I use yesasia.com for ordering Asian DVDs.

It's a lot easier to use that amazon.jp for those of us who do not understand Japanese. The site is in English, not Japanese. The shipping is free for $39 orders or higher. Delivery is pretty fast.
