Per an email I got from CDJapan:

Quote:
Hello.

We are sending this notification to customers who have recently purchased anime titles.

Unfortunately, Avex Pictures, the publisher of popular anime titles such as "Yuri!!! on Ice" and "Osomatsu-san" and others is restricting exports of Blu-ray, DVD, and CD titles.

This restriction has been applied to all online shops within Japan, including CDJapan.

In accordance to the restriction, majority of titles published by Avex Pictures will become unavailable for shipment outside of Japan as of the following time.

Restriction begins to apply at:
6:00PM (Japan Time UTC+9) on February 15, 2017

After the above indicated time, it will no longer be available for any order to be shipped outside of Japan.

To clarify which items will be restricted, the following indication will be displayed right on the product page.

ATTENTION!!! This product will no longer be available for any order to be shipped outside of Japan starting at 6:00PM (Japan Time UTC+9) on February 15, 2017

However, all existing orders as well as all orders placed BEFORE the above indicated time will be shipped normally.

CDJapan


While I understand this, it does suck for importers…

I try to assume that Avex will sell DVDs and CDs through their subsidiaries abroad (PROTIP: They have).

Whatever... More fuel to the fire for the already racist, xenophobe and discriminator that is the Japanese music industry.
