2 Virtual-On music CDs by Sound Team Layer-0 discovered!

Post by The World - 2.0 » 20 Jul 2011, 19:17

Not sure if this is old news or not, but a short while ago, I stumbled onto these two Youtube videos, each one promoting a separate Virtual-On arranged-music CD published by a group called "Sound Team Layer-0." I was quite impressed with the music samples, too. :) The links to the videos are below:

What I'd like to know is: Where and how can I get my hands on these CDs?

It's a doujin CD sold at C79.

Here is the official page for the product, along with samples from an older C77 CD.

Supposedly you can buy the CD from tora or akibaoo

And when I see the cover (left), I keep seeing something else instead (right)

Their website has some links to stores that apparently sell it.
C79新作VO-Arr/Lz_2 - Sound Team Layer-0

You can probably get it through a middleman such as Rinkya.

I tried the methods that shamanic_beat suggested, but unfortunately, the sites were all in Japanese, which I am not fluent in, and even Google Translator was of no help at all. MeltholMoose's idea for Rinkya didn't work, either. Are there any English-speaking sites where i can get the VO-Arr/Lz_2 and OM-GOT/4Mz CDs from? If there aren't any, then I have a special request: If there are any forum members who have the CDs, would it be possible for you to rip copies of the music tracks from the CDs and upload them onto a file-sharing website(like MegaUpload, Rapidshare, etc.), so I can download them and listen to them on my PC?

If Rinkya won't help, try Shopping Mall Japan. I've seen them recommended here. I'm sure there are other similar services as well.

Another similar site that looks reputable: Noppin

I actually tried emailing Rinkya not too long ago, but it said that one of the requirements was an "Auction URL," which I don't have. I guess what I forgot to mention on my post a couple of days ago was that I have searched everywhere on the Net for those 2 CDs, with no luck at all. No auctions, no stores(other than the ones shamanic_beat told me about), no downloads anywhere, no Torrents, nothing. So now I think it's time to move to Plan B. I already mentioned my plan B(which was my special request) in my previous post. Or should I just start a new topic with "Special Request..." as the subject line? It could get more attention that way. But that's just me talking.

I'd be willing to bet money that hardly anyone in the US has even heard of these disks, let alone owns either one, so depending on someone to upload it would probably leave you SOL. Just use a middleman service that offers shopping service (basically, purchases things off of Japanese online stores for you, as opposed to auctions), such as TokyoBuyers or Noppin Shopping Service. Follow the instructions on either of the pages, and be sure to send them one of the URLs that Shamanic posted, so they know what it is that they're buying for you (note that both URLs are different shop pages for only one of the CDs. The other one apparently isn't available for sale).

Well, I managed to order the VO-Arr/Lz_2 music CD through Noppin(it was quite pricey, though). I'm having to wait to get the other one(the OM-GOT/4Mz music CD), even though I know which online store it's at.

How much did the fees end up adding? I've never used Noppin so I'm curious how they compare.

Well, the item itself was 1,260 JPY, just from the store that Noppin got it for me from. Then another 500 JPY for Domestic Shipping to the Noppin building. Noppin's service fee was a whopping 1,176 JPY. Add to that the payment handling price (102 JPY), and you got a 3,038 JPY total. And that's just for the first part of this whole thing. That's right, there's more you gotta do. After the item gets to the Noppin office building, you gotta pay for shipping to the final destination. In my case, the cost was another 1,200 JPY. So I ended up paying a whopping grand total of $60. :shock:
