Japanese Seller chiccha_popura16y03 PSA

Hi all,

I wanted to send out a quick PSA regarding a seller on Yahoo Japan, chiccha_popura16y03
I purchased six cels for them and when they arrived, (Thursday) all six have vinegar syndrome. There are varying stages from the strong vinegar smell to the cel warping. The images used in the auction are perfect and there was no mention in the description about strong smell or vinegar, which I have seen sellers do. After 20+ years of purchasing from Yahoo Japan this is the first time that this has happened to me. It's very disappointing. I'm trying to save the dougas now. I'm airing them out in a ventilated garage for three days, then they will each be placed between two sheets of mircrochamber paper. (front and back). I'll check them again in about a month. They should be salvageable. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up with my experience with chiccha_popura16y03

Thanks everyone,
