Re: [SCA-JML] Onmyoji (+ additional armour question)
- I haven't ordered these particular films, but all of the others I have ordered
have arrived in mint condition...They still have the orginal factory wrapping
on them. I think I must have ordered about a dozen through them and all have
been just fine. Essentially, they are an auction site, part of e-Bay, so the
DVD's come from folks who advertise them for sale. And, just as there are
professional merchants who sell their goods on e-Bay, so there are professional
merchants who sell them here. I suspect there is a substantial mark-up on
DVD's, so these guys aren't really losing money!

different directions: one went toward becoming the o-yoroi, and the other ended up more poncho like and heavily
Chinese styled. The final form of it survives as a costume -- looking like a kozane-covered poncho -- in some court
This form was more ceremonial than anything else, and is largely ignored.
