Liz Lisa x My Melody mook vol. 1 scans

It's been a long time coming, but I finally got my hands on both the Liz Lisa x My Melody mook vol. 1 and tote/appendix! I really wanted to buy them together (from one seller/as one transaction), but as it was released quite a while ago now, there aren't very many people selling it in tact and distributors/manufacturers have stopped making it! I decided to just jump at the first chance to get each of these items separately. I'll explain a bit more about that at the end, but first, here are the scans!
These scans are meant to be for personal use and I do not claim ownership of these images.

The tote was actually a huge component of me wanting to get this first mook. Of course, I did want to get the complete set (I've already got my hands on vol. 2-5), but I really did want the tote from this mook and it's my favorite design for all of the free items that have come with them throughout the series. However, it took me forever to realize this and, by the time I did, they were no longer manufacturing it. So my only choice was to find it secondhand. This proved to be a bit tough because most of them were either in used condition (for the mook/magazine part, I didn't mind so much but I would prefer for the tote not to be used), or ridiculously expensive for the entire mook + appendix being brand new. I finally found a tote in "new" (it was out of the packaging but not used) condition on Buyee and won the auction. The price wasn't as low as I would have liked, but I've definitely seen it go for more, so I'm not going to pinch pennies over it since I really wanted it. Once I had the tote secured, I went to go look for the mook itself.

I actually tried to buy the mook on Amazon JP previously but decided against it since none of them came with the tote and I didn't want to worry about finding the complete set later and then having two of the mook (which is not what I would want two of lol). Without having to worry about that, I went ahead with a purchase on Amazon JP, shipping to my Tenso address.
I've purchased from Amazon JP and shipped directly international before but that was for a product fulfilled by Amazon. The "used" mooks were not Amazon fulfilled and the sellers did not ship overseas. Therefore, my only option was to use a forwarding service and Tenso hasn't failed me yet, so that's what I used.
If you need help entering your Tenso address, Tenso actually has a Amazon JP specific guide. You need already have a Tenso address/account and be logged in. Then, once you're redirected to your "My Page", click on the link under your address on the right that says "How to enter your Tenso address".

Scroll down a bit to the section that says "Example: Amazon JP" and just follow exactly what it says.
Super easy! I was able to complete the transaction with my regular (US) credit card and then the item was shipped to my Tenso address and I did the rest of the forwarding process as usual.
You should definitely check if Amazon JP items can be internationally shipped directly to you first, but Tenso is a great second option in the cases that you might need a forwarding service and the process is really easy.

I do not claim ownership of any of the scanned images. Please purchase and support where you can!
