If your friend is desperate for it, you can use a shipping service like Tenmeido (tenmeido.fc2web.com/). There are instructions on his site for how to go about using his service. Basically, you'd pay for the item on amazon.co.jp with your credit card but ship it to his address. Then you pay him a fee via paypal (I think it's $10) and shipping to you. I've used his service several times and have had no problems.
I dunno if that site you mention has it in stock, but the item as listed is not available for mail order.

Thanks kyouki! I'll have him look into that.
And for the uninformed, Grand Edition is a remake.
The remake of the game released in 2000 had many significant changes, including:
* Multiplayer game mode: allowing up to 6 players, each controlling a nation; * The Esgares Empire became a fully playable nation, and gained plot cut scenes; * Changes on battle mode gameplay: o Like on the Fire Emblem series, elements became based on the Rock, Paper, Scissors rule: red is effective against green, green is effective against blue, and blue is effective against red. White and black still oppose each other; o If, after 13 turns of battle, the attacking side has an unit over the defending side's castle, the attacking side now wins. * Monsters became able to equip items; * The player is redirected to a final boss, when the continent is successfully conquered; * The original 3D opening was replaced by an anime opening; * Many dialog-only cut scenes where replaced by anime cut scenes; * 3D battle animations replaced by simpler and faster 2D animations; * Major changes on soundtrack; * New rune knights, character classes, items and monsters.
I thought Brigandine was pretty good too. I mean, there must be some reason it pulls in so much money on eBay. :P
The Grand Edition sounds pretty sweet, though. Good luck finding it, Ace.
It pulls in money because of JSRPG fanboys and girls creaming their pants over a game which is exceptionally interesting to that particular genre of games. Good art, ok music, awful graphics and boring game play. But, I personally hate a lot of games most people like.
