Q: Does this box come with the first in the series or is it random and is it possible to get manga that wasn't just released Asked by Shakeu F., May 2020
Q: Is there a way to order just one box without the automatic renewal?Asked by Joe K., October 2019
Yes, there is an option to make the purchase as a 'gift'. This will not auto renew.

Q: Can you get a specific series of manga Asked by Shakeu F., May 2020
I’m still waiting for clarification regarding shipment confirmations that were never received. I’ve sent copies of the emails and have received no response. Lacking communication and customer service.
The first box I got was ok, arrived a little late but then had pretty good books in it. The box looked like the logo had just been taped on, and the maid on the info pamphlet looked very badly drawn, but it didn't matter to me a lot. The second one, my August box, didn't arrive till SEPTEMBER and they didn't even tell me it was gonna be delayed. When I sent a complaint, they didn't reply until I contacted CrateJoy, then they said they were delayed by "the holidays" and were very curt with me. First of all, I'm paying you quite a bit just to send me overpriced snacks and a few manga, you should at least be polite. Also, there are no major holidays in August??!? The September box (which didnt arrive till October), the drawing on the pamphlet was a bit better, but all the snacka except for 2 tasted like garbage and the manga where really bad. The Final Fantasy one, you couldn't even properly underatand unless you read the others before hand. The second was just a remake of Star Wars. Please, whatever you do.... DONT SUBSCRIBE HERE
Let me start by saying I really liked this box. However, I absolutely do not recommend ordering from cratejoy. At the time of writing this review, it is 10 dollars cheaper to order from the company site directly. This makes a huge value difference in relation to the contents of the box. At the 49.xx that it will total out to on cratejoy, it is not a good value. Your three books average about 30 dollars and the various snacks, bought off sites like Yamibuy ( a great site for snacks. Better priced than Amazon by far) are usually $0.50-2.00 an item. They did not equal the difference of the 10 dollars. There is no benefit to ordering from cratejoy, other than to have your subscriptions in one spot.
Star decrease is because of the price difference.
One of my favorite subscriptions! At first I was afraid when ordering this box since they hadn't been around for very long but they ended up being really great service! I love the variety of manga and treats you get! It's definitely worth the price! However, like someone else has suggested, it's cheaper to go through their actual website. Cratejoy tacks on a higher amount for shipping. Also, one of the great things about manga spice is that they always email you a tracking number when they ship out your box!
It came a day earlier than estimated and the books were a great read!
This box is so fun! I just love everything that came in the first box and it's so well curated. It's a great way to discover new manga and I really enjoyed the info sheet.
This reminded me of how much I love Manga and all things Japanese. Great selection of treats and stories.
Great keep up the good boxes😀.
We enjoyed the snacks. The manga selection we received wasn't that great, though, but still not bad overall.
Every month has been awesome ! I got it for my boyfriend and he loves it. The books are great and the munchies that come along with is is a lot of fun and really good. The pamphlet that comes with it is great to. It's interesting to get the story on both the artists and the writers. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of manga and trying new things. BEST EVER!!!
