Seeing Dekai Anime shut down earlier in February this year was a shock.

Regular customers were understandably sad to learn that such a big anime store in UK had suddenly closed down. But there’s some good news for those looking for alternative anime stores.

I’ll show you where you can get affordable and outstanding anime figures!

What Happened to Dekai Anime?

Dekai Anime was an online anime store in the UK that was highly praised for its products. Many resorted to them whenever they wanted to purchase new anime figures and considered the store the best in their area for affordable prices and fast shipment.

The problem is that since February 9th, Dekai Anime has closed down, and they are no longer taking or dispatching orders. When you try to access the website, all you can see is the message below:

“We are sorry to inform you that the business has ceased to trade with immediate effect.

The directors are taking steps to place the company into liquidation. All customers with outstanding orders will be contacted by the duly appointed liquidators in due course.

In the meantime, we would encourage any customers with outstanding orders paid via credit/debit card to follow their card issuers chargeback process. Customers who paid via PayPal who paid within the last 180 days should raise a dispute against the non-received item(s) on their order. Customers who paid via PayPal over 180 days ago should follow their card issuer chargeback process.

Further updates will be provided following the formal appointment of the liquidators.”

The online anime stores Anime Emporium and Gamersheek promptly assisted those waiting for their anime figures, and other users are figuring out how to get their money back.

What otakus can do now is find a good alternative to Dekai Anime. That’s why I’m here!

An anime subscription box is a service in which you receive a box filled with anime goods recurrently for as long as you wish! At The Otaku Box, subscribers receive one box every month, and what is even more fun about it is that you never know what you’re getting until you receive your package. The content is a complete mystery!

To make sure each box is unique, I curate and design new anime merch every month, including custom waifu anime figures and t-shirts. And all that is based on subscribers' votes, as mentioned in this post.
