So I thought, hey that pack of cards looks cool. Nice little present for someone.

The item is just $5.70 and is rather small... But then I go to order it and get the postage. $21.60.


Ouch! Surely Crunchyroll can find a better way to post stuff. Also, don't get me started on the price when I try to order more than one.

lol. even ordering from Amazon Japan may be cheaper.

cost of shipping to N America: 700 yen + 1200yen /kg * .1kg = 820 yen = a little over 8 bucks

breaking up the shipping charges:
$21.60 = $8 (importation costs) + $13.60 (Crunchyroll fees)

edit: fixed link
