Post Ordering OSTs From Amazon.co.jp
I've recently started filling some of the gaps in my MGS collection and took a more in-depth look at some of the OSTs I ordered from Ebay 10+ years ago. As I had figured, a few of these were bootlegs (Miya and Ever Anime). I figured the easiest way to replace those with original pressings would be to order from Amazon.co.jp.

tldr; Are all OSTs on amazon.co.jp original pressings as long as they are fulfilled by amazon?

Thanks for the quick response Artemio. I'd also be curious what kind of proxy service you use when buying from Yahoo Auctions Japan or any other Japanese-only market?

For Amazon I buy directly. For YAJ I use either Rinkya or From Japan

So does it mean Amazon is really reliable?

Yes, I am sure Amazon Japan only deals with legitimate distributors. However, if you are looking elsewhere for OSTs, here are a few things to look our for.
-Stock photos
-Sellers located in China (a red flag for OSTs more times than not)
-Selling brand new copies for less than ~$15
-Also, be sure to check the label and product code against known legitimate copies (like those on junkerhq.net or http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Soundtracks)

Lastly, I would recommend reading through this article if you want some more in depth info

Artemio, have you ever used the FJ point system with From Japan? Also, did you/were you able to preorder the MGSV Premium Package through them? They already hit their limit for the number of units they can order so I have not been able to find another reasonable way to preorder it.

No, I've not used their point system yet.

I was able to use their service for ttp, you could still use rinkya. A friend of mine used them for it.
