This really annoys me, it hasn't even been a week. There must be people who are getting like 50 each or something. Screw them, I haven't even had the chance to get a single one >:/

The app is actually available in US iTunes as well, which is why people have been fooling around with the camera portion of it.

So this is a national thing? Doubt my town would know the fudge Hatsune Miku is.

So I made my first order via the iPhone app yesterday.

Let me tell you how much it sucks!! Anime dazed

First of all, the sides menu isn't available on the regular menu and only when you're looking at your cart. I tried ordering with credit card and for some reason the expiration date part wouldn't put in the year even though it was a scroll-y thing. Took me a while to get it to display correctly so I could hit the "confirm" button. That took me a few minutes. Then finally when I was able to enter it in, I got an error after trying to confirm the order. >__>;; Kept getting the error until I finally tried restarting the app and doing everything again. -_- The only up side is that my cart contents were still in there when I restarted the app. Man, what a pain! ...But this was with the regular Domino's app and not the one with Miku.

Odd, the regular Domino's app works great for me, and I've been using it for half a year at this point.

I know, right?! Like Dominos I will buy a large expensive pizza with a bunch of sides with my own money, and I will personally convince my family to move to the next city where they do deliver, if you just make this available in America. Please. Pizza and Vocaloid would be the perfect combination.

A news item I saw on another site I frequent quoted a Domino's official in Japan as saying that demand was as much as ten times what was expected in some areas.

I live in a pretty big city in Saitama so most likely they're already out. Oh well. It would've been just for the novelty.

Look, someone's selling a box on Yahoo! Auctions!
