Your not the only one I did 2 rightstuff order back when they did the summer birthday sale. One with all in stock items and then a second with some out of stock items with "expecting more soon", but I am still waiting on that second order: and I think those items holding it up are: interveiw with moster girls, Tales of the Abyss and unbreakable machine dolls. Kamisma kiss S1 they have since got in stock, but certainly a slow process.Don't know if I'm alone or not (suspect not actually) but it seems Rightstuf has big issues with getting stock in.
An order I've placed back in July still isn't shipped out and this morning I got an email they've removed Bofuri LE from the order as they also earlier did with Cautious Hero LE.
One would suspect as a customer that when you ordered something and one or more titles in your order aren't in stock that the rest is at least set aside for you. This is clearly not the case with Rightstuf ... you've been warned
There was still one title in my order which hasn't been in stock for over two months (Date a Live III in fact) so now I had this removed from the order, so that the rest can finally be shipped out.
Also informed them that Duty and Tax Deposit should also be adjusted as it's still the same although $111 worth of items was removed from the order.
My personal experience with Rightstuf customer care took a serious dive in the last years, don't know if I'm the only one here.
But yeah I was hoping for the setting aside thing as well, although may partailly do it (just guessing/hoping) in the sense they just hold one item of stock in the stock counter so it can't be purchased
I honestly would have done the same as you and ordered BOFURI except I didn't see the message that my UK version got cancelled till after the sale. So I have since bought an AUS version, but it is a bit pricey at £67 so depends how much you want it really (but no Import costs), Amazon UK via US for US version used to have it in stock but they seemed to have all gone now (just the one like new, which I actually want to guess is my returns)
