    I have ordered from them a few times. Great communication with the owners. I had mentioned a comment about Saber being my fave character and James actually sent me an email personally letting me know Saber distant avalon was on pre-order earlier this summer.

    Great guys to deal with, quick shipping, no problems for me.

    I live in the U.S. so I don't know about international shipping.

    They are legit, and they also have an amazon store as well.

    Well I just made a order with them for the first time. I hope things go well (I've been sitting on the fence about buying from them but a friend of mine used them for a preorder and I figure I would test them out for the both of us. I did it for Kidnemo so its no big deal) I really hope I get him. I've been telling myself I would get him and that was months ago!

    I ordered this badboy ITEM #18346 He'll go great with the Dante I got last year XD

    I just ordered with them for the first time. Its a pre-order for Shirahoshi and I paid in Full. I'm kinda worried because all their releases dates are like two months after the actual date, does anyone know why? :/

    Probably because they get it later than other stores do. Its' the same with Navi-TO

    There's no reason to worry, I've bought from Anime-Island before and they're legitimate and super helpful.

    Can definitely say I give praise to how they handle questions, if you have any doubts, you should just ask them about it, they're really responsive


    EDIT: Just posted and saw the comment above mine, this proves my point >>Anime-IslandWe receive a majority of items 4-8 weeks later than Japanese stores do. This is the transit time via Cargo ship across the Pacific. Some items we receive faster like Gundam, S.H. Figuarts, Saint Seiya, most Bandai items. Our Kotobukiya items will start arriving alot sooner also.

    Just received my first order from them and was a tad disappointed to find that nothing was protecting the outside of the figure's box, which seem to have led to some scuff marks on the side that was against the shipping box. I'm not really a "box person" who needs it to be pristine, but if I try to sell it at some point...eh... I would have rather paid an extra 50cents for some bubble wrap.

    Other than that, the order went smoothly, and I'll probably order from them again at some point.

    ITEM #84622 arrived today, after 12 days "in limbo". USPS seem to have issues updating shipping info, but can't blame the shop for that one.

    Two layers of bubble wrap, newspaper and wrapping paper ensured a safe journey (pics to follow). Box with the figure got one crease in the plastic on top though, but it not that noticable for me and really not a problem. Was being kept informed throughout the sale with regular email updates, full marks from me for Anime-Island. Thank you.

    Now waiting for ITEM #98090, which was cheaper to buy from Anime-Island than through middleman service from Japan.

    My order for a figure that's been out for a while is still at "Awaiting Fulfillment" after 8 days. What does this mean? It said she was in stock when I paid in full so I'm not too sure what exactly is waiting to be fulfilled.

    It means your figure is not in stock. At least this is what it says on mine, which is coming out in June in Japan. But it states July.

    Look in your Anime-Island order status page, it should state there when your figure due to be released. Remember, there is a delay between a release in Japan and a "release" in shops from the US.

    Which figure is it?

    Thank you 4Arnd and Anime-Island for clearing things up for me! I know the company is a good one so I wasn't too worried, just a little confused as it's my first time ordering there and jargon can differ between stores.

    Thanks again :)

    I'm wondering why the site has Yusuke Urameshi up, but not Alter's Stocking yet? Stocking has been announced for longer than Yusuke...

    Anime-IslandAlter has not solicited Stocking yet. We usually chalk this up to issues with licensing, this is what causes alot of delays. Funimation owns the rights in the US but Gainax is the main rights holder in Japan and they probably want to renegotiate their deal since Panty & Stocking is selling better in the US now. They have Funimation by the cojones right now if they are renegotiating, the Alter Panty figure already went up for order around the US months ago and sold well and people will want to finish the set with Stocking, plus Funimation is about to release a DVD/Blu-ray in July for the series. This stuff happens with other companies alot, like Bandai, we will get emails saying they may not ever carry an item and then it shows up a few months later or we get an early pre-order listing telling us that the figure's license is not secured yet but to sell it anyway as they will work it out.

    Wow... I didn't know all that happens behind the scenes. Nonetheless, thanks for the update! It's nice to know what's going on. Gainax and Funimation need to hurry up and make a deal already!

    I remember sending an email to Anime-Island twice at two different times (regarding product stock and pricing) and got no reply.
    The fact that I've been continuously ignored versus positive comments from others kind of throws me off >__<;;

    Anime-IslandCould be your email got sent to spam or blocked. PM me your email address and I will look for them/add it to friendly senders. Some emails randomly go to spam because of the format/links etc. We see it with our emails all the time, sometimes I send customers 5 emails and they never even see one.

    Also we do have a contact page/form & we have a message system in the website once you place an order with us. These contact systems/forms never have issues unless of course the server/website is down for maintenance. So there are 3 different options for communication if you didn't/don't receive a response to your question via email.


    I did check my spam box in the past (and just now) and I can never find your emails which I find odd. Used keywords such as "anime, island".
    I also did use the contact page from your website. Perhaps I should send an email from my gmail (terramishu@gmail.com) instead of using the contact form in the future (I forgot what were my questions, it was a while ago), maybe that'll work.
    Thanks for the reply anyways ;)

    * Edit: Confusion solved~
    Had a conversation on board via PMs and replied with detailed answers.

    Is the reason why Flynn Scifo isn't up for pre-order similar to why Alter's Stocking isn't, or are you just not carrying that re-release? I found it odd that you have Yuri up and not Flynn...
