Hi, I’m Liz!

Growing up with Yuri!!! on ICE, Given, and No. 6, I was always on the hunt for yaoi merch but came up empty-handed. That sparked the idea for The Otaku Box – a dream turned reality where you help pick the loot. Subscribe for amazing anime figures and ecchi magic in every box!

Let's enjoy our favorites together.

What other Otakus are saying about The Otaku Box?

"Been receiving these boxes for a few years now and have no plans to stop ever! There’s always something fun and interesting in them and some very useful but good-to-look-at stuff too! I have always had the upgrade figure but just taken that off simply because I have no more room to display them atm! The service from Liz is exemplary and I couldn’t ask for more so thanx Liz please never stop doing what you do!"

"The Otaku Box has the best anime loot ive had by far. what makes it more enjoyable for me is getting the ability to upgrade the box and choose between different options of what kinds of items you want included in the box and also being able to vote in which animes you want featured in the next box. So awesome!!!"

"The box is full of great things, I display most of them proudly on my shelves and they're high quality. I got the uncensored box, so of course I don't show everything off, but it's a great service and I'd love to continue to pay for it. The figures are great, the art is great, everything is just really well made. Worth the purchase."

Frequently asked questions

What is Yaoi, also known as Boy's Love (BL)?

Yaoi, or Boy's Love (BL), is where captivating tales of male-male romance bloom, inviting audiences into worlds where love knows no bounds. It's all about those heart-thumping, butterfly-inducing moments between "bishōnen" (gorgeous, youthful) characters, taking you on a rollercoaster of emotions from the sweet whispers of first love to the intensity of a passionate connection. Whether it's through subtle glances or more, ahem, explicit encounters, yaoi explores every shade of love and desire.

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

Yes, there is a fee for our yaoi mystery box. For the latest prices, including shipping costs, please refer to the information provided at checkout.

When does my box ship?

FIRST BOX
If you order between the 1st and 7th, your box ships on the 24th of that month. If you order after the 7th, it ships at the end of the month.

EVERY NEXT BOX
After your first box, all future boxes ship on the 24th of each month.

IMPORTANT NOTE
If you order late in the month, say on the 31st, you'll be billed again on the 1st of the next month, most likely before your first box has had the chance to arrive. Don't worry if this happens; your box is definitely on its way.

How and when do I vote for the titles and art I'd like to see?

  • At the start of each month, I'll refresh the list of yaoi titles available for voting based on what we can feature.
  • You have until the 6th of each month to cast your vote. Just follow the link sent to your email. If you can't find it, click here.
  • The art piece with the most votes becomes the next wall scroll design. Not all art can win at once, so pieces that don't make it will be up for vote again later—we believe in second chances here! If you opted for the shirt add-on, the top shirt design will be included in your box. The most popular yaoi titles of the month will also be represented with items in the box.

What's the refund policy?

There are no refunds except in the case of the money-back guarantee. Subscriptions are self managed and you have full control over your subscription, you may cancel at any time. Refunds will be processed in 7-14 working days.

Is my information secure?

Yes! Even I can’t see your billing information, so it’s completely safe on my end!

Does each box have a theme, and how does the voting work?

Instead of a theme, subscribers get to vote on their favorite yaoi titles, and those with the majority vote are featured in that month's box. The vote form is sent to you when you subscribed, but if you lost it you can click here.

How does the Otaku Forum work?

The Otaku Forum is where fans gather to chat about anime, manga, gaming, and more! It's a cozy space for sharing, discussing, and connecting with fellow Otakus. From swapping recommendations to geeking out over the latest releases, there's always something happening in the forum. Join the fun and be part of our vibrant community today!

What's your relationship with Yaoi Crate?

Yaoi Crate was a fantastic yaoi mystery box service that captured my heart with its unique offerings and devoted following. I was so enamored with their team and product that I decided to buy Yaoi Crate. Now, as part of our family, I'm thrilled to continue serving the yaoi community with the same love, sweat, and tears that made Yaoi Crate special. Welcome to the next chapter of our journey together!

How does the Otaku Box work?

Every month, dive into a curated collection of yaoi-themed anime treasures, chosen with input from you! The Otaku Box delivers unique items, including an exclusive wall scroll, stylish t-shirt, acrylic anime figure, and 3-4 other yaoi surprises.

What sets The Otaku Box apart is your power to shape what's inside. Through community votes, you can select yaoi titles, t-shirt designs, and more. Plus, each box includes an exclusive ecchi wall scroll for an added touch of fanservice. Embark on this personalized adventure and make your box uniquely yours!

When am I billed?

You pay for your first yaoi mystery box at checkout. Check the price and what's in your box then. After that, you'll be charged on the 1st of every month, even if you signed up on the last day of the previous month.

If you get billed again before your first box arrives, don't stress! Your box will definitely reach you. Sometimes, shipping can get delayed due to global logistics challenges.

How easy is it to cancel?

Too easy! Cancel at any time, and there is no penalty or fee. Simply fill in the cancellation form here and select to cancel your subscription. Please note that requests made through the form will take up to 24 hours to process. Cancellation requests made the day after the billing date will be applied to the next billing date.

What will I receive, including the yaoi figure?

Each Otaku Box is a gateway to a curated selection of yaoi treasures, directly influenced by your choices! Expect to unveil an exclusive wall scroll, with artwork voted on by you, a stylish t-shirt, an acrylic anime figure, and 3-4 additional yaoi-themed surprises. These extra goodies can include anything from apparel and accessories to stationery and collectibles, all designed to astonish you. Remember, the joy is in the surprise—no spoilers!

Is the site secure?

Yes! I use 100% bank-level encryption provided by Shopify, a global leader in e-commerce.

How does the guarantee work?

New customers can receive a refund before their first box ships. If your box has already shipped, you are not eligible for a refund. If you've received more than one box in the past, this guarantee does not apply to you and you are not eligible for a refund. Refunds will be processed in 7-14 working days.

How can I get in touch with you?

Please don't hesitate to contact me: support@theotakubox.com

What is an Anime Box?

An anime box is a subscription box for otakus! Subscribers receive surprise anime merchandise of their favorite anime and manga every month! What you get with the Otaku Box isn't random either; you can vote on your favorite anime to be featured.

Another big plus is that the reasonable price saves you time looking for anime items in stores. Many subscribers feel that receiving a box of fun anime merch is like a birthday or Christmas gift every month!

There are different styles of anime boxes out there to fit different tastes, too! Some packages are for otakus who prefer to stick with specific items such as manga or Japanese candy and those who'd rather have a little bit of everything. The Otaku Box offers a bit of everything for all!

How is yaoi different from bara?

Yaoi, or Boy's Love (BL), offers heartwarming stories of "bishōnen" (beautiful, youthful) characters, appealing mainly to those who enjoy romantic and emotional tales. Created largely by women for women, it focuses on idealized male-male relationships. Bara, geared towards a gay male audience, features more muscular and masculine characters, presenting a realistic view of gay relationships. While yaoi serves up dreamy romance, bara provides a look into the diverse experiences of gay love.
