Crayon, could we get some clarification on just how Yaoi Club is going to operate?
Will packages come marked "Yaoi Club"?
Will the charge on credit cards be "Yaoi Club"?
Will the books never be available at Akadot? How about at other retailers - will they still go out?
What kind of delay are we looking at if the books eventually will be made available to retailers?
Will previous Akadot memberships be transferable to Yaoi Club?
Will we be able to combine orders at Yaoi Club with Akadot orders?
How about Bookoff? Will it operate in both store fronts, as it sells both BL and non-BL material?
When will this shift of BL books to only Yaoi Club happen? Next month? Next three months? Next year?
Will all future DMP BL releases appear only at Yaoi Club from now on, or will the releases continue to be split between YC and Akadot until the final move?
And for the record, I still see this move as presented
(with no concrete details) as yet another segregation of BL material. It's not much better than what Amazon is doing to you right now, and I think the executives and director of e-commerce ought to consider that as they tighten up this planned move of BL books to a separate store. That or the executives and e-commerce director ought to let us in on the reasoning for such a move. Most of the fans here can be quite reasonable when presented with the facts.
Anyway, if you could get these answers from the executives and director of e-commerce, I'm sure we'd all be grateful. Thank you for your efforts on our behalf!
