Manga Pile

Japanese Please was made by and for fans of Japanese pop culture. Growing up outside of Japan, studying Japanese, and sharing a love for manga, we set out to make all manga in Japan easily accessible to the rest of the world.

Our website not only functions as a shop for importing manga from Japan, but also as a database to provide you with helpful information for each manga title you’re looking for. If you can’t find a specific title, let us know and we will do our best to upload it within 48 hours.

In addition to standard functions, such as linking all manga under their imprints and authors, we also include each manga’s reading level, whether furigana is available, and sample pages, so you can gauge the kanji and vocab difficulty based on your reading comprehension.

Common Questions

Language: All of our manga is in JAPANESE ONLY. As of right now, we do NOT carry any English manga. Bilingual manga, when available, will be labeled appropriately.

Stock: With thousands of manga titles in Japan, we cannot confirm which are available until after you place your order. Orders are usually processed within 2 business days, though backorders can take longer. You will be refunded in full for any manga titles found to be unavailable.

Condition: All NEW manga are brand-new, factory-sealed, and never read before. These manga will come to you preshrink-wrapped by the manufacturer. For PREOWNED manga, most titles are typically in very good or like-new condition. Since page color can vary by age, please refer to the manga’s original release date specified in the product description. We offer a 30 day return policy on all titles, and welcome any and all questions.

Shipping: We currently offer Yamato Transport and Japan Post. Yamato International TA-Q-BIN typically takes between 4 ~ 6 business days. Japan Post shipping options include EMS (2 ~ 4 business days), airmail (3 ~ 6 business days), ePacket (3 ~ 6 business days), and SAL (6 ~ 13 business days).

COVID-19 Pandemic: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Japan Post’s available shipping methods vary by country. For those residing in heavily affected areas, we also offer Yamato Transport as an alternative shipping method. Regardless of carrier, shipping delays due to the pandemic are possible, as it has impacted all postal services worldwide.

Japan Post Updates: Japan Post has recently made affordable ePacket shipping available in select countries. Their list of applicable countries is updated on a daily basis. If you believe your country is eligible for Japan Post shipping, but experience an error at checkout, then please contact us so we can resolve the issue immediately.
