What is Otaku Noir Collection?

Otaku Noir is a quarterly mystery box that provides “readables” aka. books (comics, manga, graphic novels, and more), apparel, posters & collectibles to fans of diversity. All items are created by artists, writers, and other creators of color.

How does your mystery box work?

It is an amazingly easy process! Select the plan that is right for you, choose your preferred T-shirt & sock size and complete your purchase. You will not be billed or automatically charged for more boxes than what you initially purchase. If you want to get two boxes, you can pre-order the 2-box plan or just manually purchase two boxes whenever you want.

We’ll send you a brand-new box full of content created by talented blerds from around the world!

What is the cutoff date for a purchase?

The 27th of the previous month (February 27, May 27, August 27, November 27) is the cut off for each shipment. This allows us to ship all orders in a timely fashion.
We ship no later than the 12th of each quarter (March 12, June 12, September 12, December 12).

When will you ship my first order?

If the box for the month in which you signed up is already shipping, then your ordered box will be part of the next quarter’s shipment.

For example, if you order after February 27th, then you will not receive the March box. You will receive the June box. 

Can I sign up for just one box?

Yes! We do not auto-renew our subscribers. Purchase one box (Quarterly Plan) or pre-purchase several quarters in advance. You will never be charged for more boxes than your initial order. 

What is the size of each box?

The dimensions of each Otaku Noir Collection box may vary, but typically the box is 11.25” x 9” x 3” with a weight of 2lbs – 6lbs. All weights and dimensions are approximate numbers and are not exact.
