    I wanted to do some internet shopping for some anime shit right? I stumble upon "OtakuShop" I was like "OOOOOOOOO looks great" I decided to buy right? Guess what? It's coming from FUCKING CHINA!!. I read online and I've been seeing that they sell fake shit. Did anybody ever buy anything from https://OtakuShop.us ?

    I have never heard of this site and neither am I surprised of it's existence. China's entire economy relies on mass production of wares from other countries at a cheaper craft cost.
    AKA; It's where they produce fakes the most and why their economy is bound to collapse.


    Without derailing the topic too much, did you end up actually buying or did you get a refund?

    I didn't even see that. It's my mistake for not checking but it's BS that I fell for it too.

    I don't see the problem here, Missu. Seems pretty legitimate.

    May this serve as a lesson. Trading/Merchant laws in most, if not all, countries haven't been updated to our current era, meaning that since so little applies to online merchants, you can be swindled something fierce.

    Always verify. Caution is the mother of safety.

    Also these items were surprisingly (and suspiciously) cheap. I would've backed off from those kind of prices for a damn katana sword.

    http://otakumode.com/ use that. It's from China but I've heard good things. Also maybe use Amazon, they have figures, wallscrolls, etc. Good luck with the package, let's hope it's not a fake.

    So yeah, it probably won't be the highest quality. What was it that you ordered? :o

    I knew you'd get them first XD
    I don't think they'll look bad, but I think the feeling of them will be of a cheaper material than an original figure from Japan.

    I mean it'll definitely be cheaper material but it's still merch. Merch is merch man. ;-;
    Although it is nice to have the original...

    "God made the world, then China made everything else." Quote relevant. Funny, because I don't have a religion.
