We package orders carefully, placing items inside protective bubble wrap before placing them inside cardboard box together with cushioning materials as detailed here, to ensure that customer orders arrive safely.

However, some customers find our standard packaging excessive, and it is more preferable and important for their orders to arrive as compactly as possible so that the package has a better chance of fitting through the mailbox slot.

Therefore, whenever applicable, our website allows customers to choose compact packaging type.

Applicable Orders The option is possible if the order contains:

  • Only 2 CD, Blu-ray, DVD, or Game Software.
  • Up to 2 Manga, Light Novel, or other compact books.

The option is not possible in following cases:

  • If the order contains combination of above products or if it contains any other type of product.
  • If Gift Bag option is selected.
  • If the item proves too large to fit inside the compact packaging, in which case the order will be sent inside a standard box.

Important Note:

  • After choosing this option, it will not be possible to make any modification to the order.
  • If any item in the order comes with any bonus material such as poster, the order will be sent inside the standard box together with the bonus material.
