Don't know if this is helpful to anyone...  
Recently some Japanese doujinshi artists completed a Link x Allen Anthology called "Dear Sweet" (hit the [enter] link on that page to see the site).

It was first being sold on November 1st at a con called Comic City Spark, I think.

More will be sold at Comiket (in Tokyo) on December 30th.

Well, this info is of no use to us stuck here in America (or anywhere not Tokyo, Japan) but I guess this is a heads up to people who know people in Tokyo they might be able to talk into battling through a doujinshi convention to grab this anthology for them.

Supposedly they're also selling online eventually, but I haven't seen it at any of the usual sites yet. Alas.

Unfortunately I've bought... about two doujinshi in my life, off LJ and ebay, so I don't really know how to go about it. The site has a little blurb about taking mail-orders but well... I can't read more than a word or two XD;

When I put it through a translator it said something about November being the "beginning schedule of bookstore consignment and bookstore mail order" and that there's no private mail order. Am I to assume only places that sell doujinshi in Japan will be able to make orders for the anthology? \o/ noooo idea.

Yeah, it says:
Starting in November we plan to sell through bookstores (i.e. via consignment) and mail order (i.e. online ordering).
Our apologies, but we will not be doing home mail order (i.e. they're leaving the messy stuff to the bookstore pros, lol).

Usually they'd go on to list shops where it's available, but there are none and I checked all the usual online shops and it's apparently not available :/ Hopefully it will be there later in November.

As for how to get it from over here... the online doujin shops generally don't mail overseas, alas T_T but if it's possible to order it online, you can almost always buy it through a deputy service like Celga or Rinkya. The prices get steep, but they can get you the goods. (I should mention of these two, I've only used Celga before -- it was a very good experience.)

Uho, thank you for clarifying that! XD I was thinking I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it without some super twist of luck or something, but I guess with something like that my chances look a little better.

Thank you so much for the info and help o/!
