I hate customs charges

Who is the true enemy of the UK-based otaku? Is it the high high prices of domestic DVDs? Is it the lack of range of what's available to us? Is it the general public that still think we're just here for the schoolgirl tentacle rape scenes?


It's customs charges.

Customs charge scan

As always, click on the picture to see a big version of it....

A package with goods inside declared at $51 USD - it's a parcel from the USA - add on customs charges and handling (handling being the large part) and that's an extra *half the cost of the orginal package*. That's a tad excessive!
