AFAIK, the US didn't ask for this step to be taken, JPO did this on their own. That is why no other country (AFAIK) have taken those steps. Although, the JPO might have done this to cut on the cost of checking large packages going toward the US, this where the money made from sending the package doesn't justify the cost of processing it.

note, in 9/11, all the flights were domestic flights, there is no reason to believe that local packages are safe so why block international ones!

If the problem is the exchange rate, they should just change their prices to yen.

they might still need to invoice in USD, as many banks do not support the conversion to all currencies. Also invoicing in USD makes it easier for them and their customer, since their won't be any confusion about the finally price (MG is still getting a lot of complains about Euro, aren't they? imagine the complains about JPY!).

any way, the USD price becomes a problem when they have a large difference in the exchange over a short period of time, after all, they are already using a higher exchange rate internally to offset any small changes. The result of the exchange rate problem might be that they are going to use a higher exchange rate internally, so expect to import eroge for USD 130 instead of USD 105.

UPDATE: another solution of the exchange rate problem would be, that they would stop receiving pre-orders until 4 weeks before the release of the title. Minimizing the exchange rate risk in the process.

Thats fantastic. Angel beats really could have been one of the best anime's of the last 5 years if it was fleshed out more, and the visual novel is certainly the medium for fleshing out characters and providing time for decent build up.
