"Well, apparently people have a lot of issues with Anime Wild, but I am fortunate as to not have had problems with them, my wig arrived within the allotted time and it is pretty good quality. However, I did order through amazon, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I'll have to say I do feel comfortable ordering from them through amazon again."

"My 14-year old daughter saved up her own money to buy a Manga book from animewild.com. We were excited to find a US source with a reasonable price and placed an order on June 20, 2011. Even though I told her that it would take a week or so to arrive, she ran to the mail box every day looking for her book.

When it did not arrive within a week, I explained that many vendors ship by Media mail and that it might take 2 weeks or more to get here.

On 7-6-11, we logged into the site & checked the status of the order--hoping to find a tracking number. The system showed PROCESSING as the status. I wrote to them using their own email to ask if the item had been shipped or for an anticipated ship date. NO RESPONSE.

On 7-12-11, I wrote again (using their site email)--labeling the request for information as a 2nd request and explained that a child was waiting for a response. NO RESPONSE.

This is undoubtedly one of the worst Internet buying experienced I have ever had. If the book was not in stock, the site should have said so. If it was a backorder, the order acknowledgement should have said so. If it was an unexpected situation resulting from an inventory error, man up and say so. Let us make the choice as to whether to continue to wait or to cancel the order. instead, NO RESPONSE AT ALL.

To ignore our requests for information & to continue to disappoint a child is intollerable!

"I ordered an $80+ item on May 30, 2011. A debit showed up briefly in my account twice, but then my bank informed me that the charge never came out because of a lack of response from the vendor. I've e-mailed the customer service contact three times, including to request that the order be cancelled, and there's been no response whatsoever. Unfortunately, there is no other way to contact them. Almost a month after placing this order, I can still log in and see "processing" order. I've seen some decent reviews, which are surprising. Others seem to have had the same experience as me - wish I would have done my research. My advice, stick to reputable websites and don't give a place like this your credit card info. You may never see your order."

"Mixed...
They sell via amazon.com and i've had no trouble with them there.
This time i ordered direct from their website and it took 3 weeks between my order and when it actually shipped. It was supposed to take 3 - 5 days. No update via email. No response to my emails asking what was up. No phone number i could find. Nothing.
Not only that, but 2 of the 4 items i ordered did not arrive. As best as i can tell, i wasn't charged for them, but again, no explanation, no warning. Really poor customer service.

"I have to admit, patience does definitely pay off with AnimeWild. I was terrified today actually, and saw the reviews on this site and said, "Oh no, my manga will never get here." However as I was reading these reviews, my doorbell rang and the USPS worker had my manga. Now people, you have to understand that AnimeWild is a ridiculously small company. Which is why feedback is difficult, I got my complete I"s set and for 20$ less than other sites I've seen. Now it's the Christmas season and I heard that they were very busy, now my order might have taken a while to get here. But it did. Now I want it to be very clear that AnimeWild might be a little slow, but they get the job done. "

"Awesome. I bought some manga off of of Animewild.com and it shipped the very next day. I was amazed at how fast it was sent. I chose standard mail and it was received 3 days later! Some of the best prices I have seen for manga and free shipping too!"

"This was my first time ordering something from AnimeWild.com. I was sent the wrong item so I contacted the seller about it. A little later I sent the item back and the seller shipped the right item the same day I sent the other item back. I received the right item and was very fortunate that this process went smoothly. I didn't read the bad reviews until after I ordered so I was hoping my experience was good and it was. "

"I received a gift for Christmas from AnimeWild.com via Amazon.com. They shipped promptly. However, the problem came after I received it and it was broken in the box.

AnimeWild.com repeatedly would not respond to messages. Eventually, a dispute was filed with Amazon.com with no resolution. Before the time was up a dispute was filed with the credit card. Still AnimeWild.com would not resolve the problem.

Avoid these guys like the plague. They're crooked. Their repeated poor ratings are well earned.

"I have never, ever received this order. Wrote to them thru their Amazon contact 6 times, nothing!!!

Does anyone know WHERE they are? I would like to report them to the Better Business Bureau of that area. I know it is an online store, but they should be registered somewhere.

"All three of my children had birthdays coming up.I had been really sick and had surgery coming up so I couldn't get out and shop.I was thrilled to find this company. They had alot of items that were sold out at other companies at prices that weren't horrible. I stupidly placed an order without checking them out first. I have not received my order and do not get any response to my emails. If there was a problem with my order I could deal with that if they would at least keep me updated. There is no contact number and only a p.o. box for an address. I'm so disappointed with this company. They sell items very popular with kids and you get excited to find something your child will love and thats how they get you. They should be ashamed!"

"I have heard that this store was shady but they had a naruto japanese wall calender that i HAD to have. I am such a baka. Its been two weeks going on three and i contacted them twice. No word, not even when i marked it as urgent. So just was robbed outta my first pay check. I have contacted the BBB. Anime wild just wasted my money and time. Also the item i purchased there was more expesnive then anywhere else/ Toys n joys did a better job then this peice of shit store.

Update: Got a refund but i am super pissed. I had to order that calender from another store and it was supsosedd to be a gift.

"The following is a copy of our "receipt" that was available on the website (still). We made numerous attempts to contact the company (through email; we couldn't find a number that worked anywhere. The only one listed was disconnected).

No Response, NO MAIL DELIVERY, NO REFUND.
SCAM COMPANY and I can't believe they are still in business. We reported throught the BBB, and after checking them out (which we should have done before purchasing), we would have realized they have a horrible track record of stealing from unsuspecting people online. Check them out on the BBB!
It's amazing they are not in jail for this scamming!
There is literally nothing that we can do to get our money back; if they don't response to the BBB I guess we are just out of luck with a hard lesson learned.

The bottom line was that this was my son's MAIN BIRTHDAY GIFTS for his 14th birthday. Needless to say, his birthday came and went and he never got all of these gifts. He waited, he checked the mail every day, and he waited some more. His birthday was the 1st of December. TWO FULL WEEKS after I placed the order. We waited and checked the mail faithfully all December, giving them the benefit of the doubt, excusing late mail due to the holidays, etc. I emailed a few times, and began to realize we had been scammed.

Message to the company: Shame on you. You may be getting away with it for now, but at some point you will be held accountable for your actions. The fact that you are predomoninently scamming kids and teens only makes you that much more evil. You are not worth the anger and hurt that my son has felt over this whole incident. But shame on you for doing it.

FINAL NOTE: It is now the 28th of january and still no box or refund. My emails have requested a refund and have also requested tracking information since they said it had been mailed. Note that it was SUPPOSED TO BE FREE SHIPPING b/c we had a purchase over 99 dollars, as was their deal. Thus we lost more control b/c we didn't even get a tracking number as we would have received had we paid for UPS automatically, which they would have had to provide. So I think FREE SHIPPING is their major way of scamming b/c the don't have to provide a tracking number. However, they are also unable to prove they mailed it, which is where I think they are trying to place blame: USPS. They are marking it as shipped and sending out the email, and then passing the buck onto USPS; however, they have failed to provide the proof it was ever mailed, or even responded to our inquiries.
DO NOT EVER TAKE THE CHANCE WITH THIS COMPANY. At the very least, do not buy from them because they are notorious for scamming other people and don't deserve to financially profit from anyone. I wish I had read reviews before I just blindly paid for the items my son picked out online, from some unknown site.
NEVER AGAIN> They received 1 (one) check from this review as per policy. I would give them ZERO if it was an option.

"This was a christmas gift for my boy. Never received it. Contacted the company prior to Christmas - they got back to me after Christmas and said they would send it. Have tried to contact them again - no answer - no order. I DO NOT RECOMMEND PURCHASING FROM THIS COMPANY. "
