Pre-Order Estimates

Please DO NOT Pre-Order items for Christmas Presents! There is a high chance it will not arrive in time.

We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we deal with the unfortunate delays due to COVID-19, especially with the long wait-times on Pre-Order items. 

Securing Manga stock (especially VIZ titles) during the pandemic has been very troubling, due to the constant increasing demand in all markets worldwide. Unfortunately many retailers like us have had to face these unfortunate delays, despite any wishes on getting stock much quicker.

The majority of items on Pre-Order are currently expected to arrive anywhere from now until April 2023. There are a few exceptions with Box-Sets, and Manga that are releasing soon - but various high-selling titles have been delayed.

As we have a large number of Pre-Orders, and are constantly working to bring these items to you as soon as possible - we are unable to send individual order updates. Please email us at contact@mangamate.shop if you would like any updates on your Pre-Orders items.

The following series with our highest Pre-Orders, especially have been delayed.

  • Hell's Paradise
  • Slam Dunk
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • Vagabond
  • Spy x Family
  • Yona of the Dawn
  • Kimi Ni Todoke
  • Dengeki Daisy
  • Vampire Knight
  • Dorohedoro

There are many other Series not on this list that are heavily delayed, these are just the mostly inquired about - it is best to contact us for any inquiries.

Please note that Older series are printed less by their Publishers, due to a lower interest and demand. Many Series 10-15+ years old are only available for Pre-Order, and are prone to frequent delays.

If you have Pre-Ordered any items for Presents that will not meet the new estimate time, please feel free to email us for exchange/store-credit methods on your order - contact@mangamate.shop

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any inquiries or updates, as we would not want you to be left in the dark with your order. You can rest assured though, that our team is working very hard to get these Pre-Orders out - and your order has not been forgotten about :)
