If it’s officially licensed, the answer is yes. Just get in touch with us about the product it is you’ve seen, and we’ll let you know if we’re able to stock it or order it in for you from our distributors!

All Anime merchandise sold on animemotivation.com are officially licensed by manufacturers, directly from Japan. If it’s not official, we don’t stock it. We intend to make a difference in the anime community, not ruin it.

No. Anime Motivation is operated online-only.

As stated here: Does Anime Motivation Have A Physical Store Front?

This is one of the most “asked” questions by customers, so it’s being considered for some point in future.

Yes indeed! Our anime mascot is known as: Hikari Yorokobi.

Hikari means “light” and Yorokobi means “Joy”.

You better believe it is!

  • Every week there are new blog posts published.
  • We’ve been running since November 2016.
  • We have dozens of social media accounts.
  • We have a registered company address, which can be found here and all over the web.

So it would be pretty stupid to go through all that only to “not” be legitimate.

You’re best off ordering before the 18th-20th of December in the UK, and before the 10th of December internationally.

If you order later than that, there’s a chance your order could be delayed due to busy times, or end up being delivered in the new year. So keep that in mind.

Delivery & Returns

If your order hasn’t arrived within 14 days in the UK, get in touch with us immediately and we’ll get you a refund or a replacement.

For international orders, if your item hasn’t arrived within 25 days, get in touch and we’ll assist you. If you don’t get in touch within 60 days of your item not arriving, refunds or replacements won’t be accepted. In any case, just Tweet us or send an email and we’ll gladly help you out!

All UK orders are shipped FREE when you spend more than £59.99! If you spend less than £59.99, you’ll never spend more than £3.99 for shipping.

For international anime collectors, shipping costs range from £10 – £19.99. You’ll never pay more than that!

All orders are sent by Royal Mail. Both in the UK and internationally.

Returns are paid for by the customer.

Items must be in their original condition. Used items can’t be returned. If returning a product, you’ll be refunded for the cost of goods once it arrives.

Here’s what the delivery estimations look like, depending on the circumstance:

For UK Customers, orders are shipped by Royal Mail and may take 2-5 days.
International orders take between 5-10+ days.
All items are dispatched within 48 hours if we have it in stock. And in busy periods (Like December), it may take a little longer to arrive.

Items are usually dispatched within 48 hours.

If you place an order close to the weekend (like Thursday or Friday), your item will either be dispatched Friday or the following Monday. As couriers (and items) generally don’t ship/arrive on weekends.

Royal Mail, the biggest local courier in the UK has delivery partners across the world. When delivering internationally they’ll hand over the parcel to a courier based within your country. So for example – if you’re based in the US, then Royal Mail will hand over your parcel to the USPS (United States Postal Service). And then the USPS will deliver your package to your address.

This is generally how it works no matter where you’re located in the world. Your local courier will end up with your package, and then will deliver it to you.
