I love the sound of international gouging in the morning

The yen-dollar rate is lovely these days. 3390 becomes $32 Canuck, the first time in fifteen years that you don't do '100 yen = 1.00 plus up to 50%' for conversion. Now I subtract. Oh joyful day, the millennium is here. Which is great but ya know, I still don't think one slim Papuwa tankoubon is worth $32.00. So, sorry, amazon.jp: it was nice, it was a slice, but I'll get my manga either through Iwase these days or through your second-hand affiliates, who only charge 1900 yen for shipping and not 3000.
