We got this email:
“My name is [redacted] and I’m the owner of Totally Manga, a retail comic store. In 09 we started the comic store concentrating only on manga. We had a fun few years but now were closing our doors and liquidating the last of our inventory. The most economic way for us to do that was to close up shop and liquidate online so we have set up the remaining titles we have on our website in a $5 close-out sale. We have 222 titles of Shonen, Shojo and Yaoi, all $5 a book, all brand new stock directly from the publishers or diamond distributers. I’d like to note we have mostly yaoi stock left because DMP/June/801/Doki Doki offered us a really great direct sales rate, so we were able to buy more from them than of other titles that go through a distributer. We also are running two specials in addition to the $5 a book. Buy 10+ books and get one free, and spend $100 get free shipping. Sale opens on June 22nd @ midnight.
“We’re hoping you can announce our sale on your website and socials. We have a page set up with ads as well, I’ll post the link below with our other info. We had a fun run, but it’s time to move on and while we will be maintaing a presence in the manga world with a future project, being a retailer has to be marked off that list. Please let me know if you have any questions. I know this could count as advertising and we don’t mind paying for ads, but as were closing we do have a very very sad limited budget for it so if you could spread the word to other manga fans about the sale we would appreciate it! Thanks for your time! :)”
So shop Totally Manga. You’ll be totally glad you did.
This has been an Otaku Service Announcement. (Are we nice or what?)
