As a regular user of Anime Motivation, you might be thinking: What’s with the title of this post?
And who would blame you.
You’re already comfortable with the site, the shop, buying or reading.
You know what Anime Motivation is about already, and you know it’s a legitimate business.
With a legitimate blog that goes out on a weekly basis.
With a legitimate social media presence.
And if you really love Anime Motivation, then you’be been here since the beginning.
AND you know I’m the founder behind the business who writes often on this blog.
BUT… if you’ve stumbled upon this post by searching with Google or Bing, you might think differently…
Bing shows me this is the question some customers ask about Anime Motivation.
And it makes sense.
With the amount of scams and fraudsters hanging around on the dark corners of the internet, it’s natural you’d want to be safe sooner. Rather than sorry later.
And being a victim of fraud/scams myself in the past, It’s understandable.
So I know where you’re coming from as an online shopper.
So back to the BIG question….
Is Anime Motivation’s Store Legit?
If this is the question you’ve been asking on Bing. In fact forget Bing.
If this is the question you’ve asked ANYWHERE online, well… Let me break it down for you.
And dive right into the history of Anime Motivation. How the business started. Why it’s trustworthy and of course, why it’s the most legit anime retailer online.
The Hard Facts About Anime Motivation:
1. animemotivation.com was founded in March 2016
The domain was first purchased way back in March 2016.
2. Anime Motivation’s Purpose
This website started out with the intention to inspire the anime community. And that purpose hasn’t changed much over the past year since the domain went live.
The purpose of Anime Motivation has expanded.
It’s all about making a difference in the anime community.
Inspirational anime quotes, anime life lessons, entertaining content… And helpful posts helps drive that mission forward.
The same is true for social media and everything else related to the business.
If you leave inspired, or simply feeling better (in some way) after being here, then that purpose was fulfilled.
And that’s the core of what drives the business forward.
3. The “business” went live in November 2016
After getting set-up prior to opening the store, it officially went live in November 2016.
That means the business has been running for less than 12 months. It’s still a baby in diapers!
That being said, the line of anime products has grown on a massive scale since then.
4. 200+ Published Articles & Blog Posts as of August 2017
It used to be on a weekly or monthly basis for blog posts and articles.
Nowa’days it’s every week without fail.
But even that’s not the full picture. Because EVERYDAY there’s fresh content being published.
Especially within the past few months of 2017.
5. A Team Of Passionate Writers & Contributors

6. Featured by Great Anime Sites
Japanese Station republished one of many articles on the site in December 2016.
And it’s not the first feature either.
Japanese Station is the biggest Indonesian anime portal. So it’s kind of a big deal.
And also the guys over at Katsu News feature tons of content from Anime Motivation.
Personally I’m grateful to both of them.

In other words: Anime Motivation is legit.
Much more legit than 90% of anime retailers online.
If that wasn’t true, then all the effort put into it would be worthless, right?
I mean you’re a smart person. Which means you know like I do that scammers, fraudsters, and untrustworthy retailers are in it for the “quick” buck.
They’ll scam you as fast as they can, and aren’t fans of building something of value.
Or investing in something for the long-term since they’re short-term thinkers.
If you have any concerns, now’s the time to share them!
