Default Japanese Double CD Tray Replacements?

I bought this album: https://vgmdb.net/album/3113

It came in a chubby case to house 2 CDs, but the left tray came broken (some of the claws fell out and won't grip the CD anymore): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pCN...ew?usp=sharing

Does anyone know where I can find this specific tray replacement? The other tray is fixed and doesn't swing open (it's just like a standard opaque CD tray, but for a fatter case). It's the same kind of tray Akumajo Dracula Best 2 uses: https://vgmdb.net/album/4701 but dark gray/black instead of white.

I asked on Discogs with no luck.

I was never able to find a source for direct replacement of this particular case myself, even in Japan or from Japanese sources, so I don't know if spares are sold anywhere. I doubt it though since I don't believe this case is used anymore. The way I usually solved this issue myself was by buying some dirt cheap album and hoping the case was intact.

Apparently these are common in Japanese PS1 dual CD releases: https://www.ebay.com/itm/29309926156...QAAOSwA41c5RE8

Here's the Discogs thread: https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/900718

I've had to get these before - in Japan the SKU is known as a 'duo case'. Still manufactured by the looks of things, but not cheap.

Hey, thanks!

Next time I order anything from Japan, I'll get one of these. By the way, what's the quantity in these listings:

https://product.rakuten.co.jp/produc...ommend_othuser
https://product.rakuten.co.jp/produc...e9ce43a023bec/

Any place where I can buy both colors in bulk? Does this exist in transparent?

For those Rakuten items it's 530 yen for one case. I haven't found anywhere to buy them in bulk, unfortunately.

The clear version, however, you can get for 755 yen per pack of three, from here (you'll need a middleman):
