Hi, I'm Liz, and I created The Otaku Box!

After my first visit to Tokyo, I was amazed at all of the awesome anime and gaming loot that was available at all of the fun anime shops, and when I came back to the states, I got frustrated that I couldn’t find anything like that back home.  So, I decided to create a way, and The Otaku Box was born!  It’s a small operation (just myself and a friend to help with the technical things!) but I love anime, so every day is tons of fun.

By the way, after you order, there’s a form where you can enter your favorite titles, and I’ll do my best to get you the type of loot you want!

The launch is in January! Here’s how it works:

1. Place Your Pre-Order

You’ll check out and enter your payment details (100% secure!) but I don’t bill you until December

2. Tell Me Your Favorites

After checkout, fill out the survey so I know your favorite anime titles (18+? Hentai’s an option!)

3. You Get Your Box

Yay!  You get to own a first edition of The Otaku Box with awesome goodies, personalized just for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does The Otaku Box work?

Every month you'll receive a box full of fun anime and gaming items!  Each box also includes at least one item that's still in it's original, made-for-Japan retail packaging.  

Unlike other boxes, some Otaku Boxes are unique and made just for you, based on your preferences, depending on the subscription option you choose.  There are also upgrades that make you eligible to receive Hentai and/or Yaoi items, if you want them!

 

What's the Insider's Club?

Glad you asked!  Those dedicated Otaku's that are subscribed to the 'More Loot + Figurine' plan automatically become members of the Otaku Box Insider's Club.

As an Insider's Club member, every single item in your box will be hand-picked based on your preferences.  No two boxes are the same, each is unique, featuring only items from titles you like!

The Insider's Club also features a special members-newsletter that showcases tons of behind-the-scenes info on Japan, from photos of rare finds in Nakano Broadway to details about upcoming boxes.  You'll be the only one in the know!

Finally, Insider's Club members are the only ones eligible for our monthly Super Box giveaway.  This is a massive box we give away each month, only to Club Members.  Inside you can expect to find incredibly rare and/or one-of-a-kind items like signed manga, posters, and anime cells, large limited edition figurines, and tons of other stuff you won't believe!  Oh, and since we drastically limit the number of 'Figurine' and above subscriptions, your chances to win are higher than you think...

Oh, and I'll send you free loot on your birthday 😎

Is Hentai an option?

Yes!  If you're 18+, answer "Yes" to "Interested in Hentai?" in the survey you'll see after you complete your order.  This means you'll receive one Hentai item per box, and every other box I'll include a Hentai figurine (if you've selected the More Loot + Figurine Upgrade Option). They're naughty!

Note: you must select either the More Loot or More Loot + Figurine upgrade option to receive Hentai and/or Yaoi loot.

How does the personalization work?

After ordering, you'll see a form where you have the option to choose what anime and Japanese game titles you like, along with whether or not you'd like to receive Hentai and/or Yaoi loot.  I'll use this information to customize your box if you've selected a subscrition option that's eligible for customization.

If you choose the More Loot + Figurine upgrade option, you'll be getting a completely customized, unique box, made just for you.  And, you'll also become a member of the Insiders Club, with even more perks and loot. 

If you choose the More Loot upgrade, one of the items in the box will be personalized based on your preferences.

If you opt for no upgrades, I'll still collect your preferences and I will include items that the majority of subscribers want, but no items will be personally picked out for your box, nor will you be able to receive Hentai and/or Yaoi items.

Is there a fee to join, and what about shipping?

Yes, there's a fee per box that varies depending upon subscription type, and starts at 34.95 USD. Shipping is a flat five US dollars in the US, and ten for outside the US.

Looks like the first box launches in January. When am I billed?

You'll be billed 30 days before your box ships.  If the charge fails to go through, we'll try again in a few days.  If it still fails, we'll attempt to contact you.  If we're unable to reach you, we'll pick the next person in the waiting list, and so on.

How easy is it to cancel?

Too easy! Cancel at any time, there is no penalty or fee!  If you have any questions or concerns, just reach out via live chat or email anytime.

What will I get?

Potential items include manga, posters, tins, plushies, art books, keychains, folders, pens/pencils, chopsticks, phone cases, small art pieces, cards, pins, stickers, coins, small figurines (premium figurines in the Figurine Box!) and more.  No, there are no spoilers (unless you're part of the Insider's Club)! 😉

If you've selected the More Loot box, you'll get either double the loot, or nicer, higher quality items

If you've selected the More Loot + Figurine box, you'll get a large, premium figurine in it's original Japanese retail packaging.  Expect Nedoroid or better!

Each box will contain at least one item that is direct from Japan, exactly as you'd see it for sale in Akihabara, Hirajuku, or Nakano Broadway!

Note: smaller accessories and manga may not be in packaging, as sometimes these items aren't packaged when sold in Japan. 

How do I update my preferences?

It's easy, just click here to update your anime, gaming, and loot preferences!

What's the refund policy?

We only bill you once your box has been prepared and is ready to ship.  Since we've reserved the spot and box for you, we can't offer a refund after you've been billed.  However, you may cancel at any time and you will not be billed for future boxes.

Does each box have a theme?

Instead of a theme, I'm all about customization!  After checkout there's a form you can fill out to let me know what your favorites are.  Then, I do my best to get them for you (depending on which subscription you've chosen, see the FAQ "How does the personalization work" for more info). 

 

My country isn't listed during checkout!

I've kept the country list relatively short so that checkout is easier, but if you don't see your country, use the live chat or email me at liz[@]theotakubox.com and I'll add it!
