Pre Ordering Policy

Please note: All pre-order dates are only ESTIMATED DATES set by the manufacturers and are subject to change without prior notice to us; on occasions item(s) do get delayed and we have no control over the manufacturer's released and shipment date. The release dates and shipment dates does vary occasionally and shipments could also be delayed anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks. Rest assure though, If release dates or shipment dates do get delayed we will always update our product listing and update our customers whom have already have pre-orders in place.

You have 2 Pre-Order options

  1. Pay in Full (Credit Card or Paypal) : means you will be charged the full amount of your Pre-Order upon checkout. Pre Orders that are paid in full before the anticipated release date will get priority stock and shipment.

  2. Pre Order Reserve (requires credit card): your order WILL NOT BE CHARGED upon checkout until the pre-ordered item has arrived at our warehouse and is ready for shipment.

    We will, however, might PRE-AUTHORIZE up to 25% of the total pre-order for credit card verification. This pre-authorization will only hold the funds from the card you place on file and release after 2-3 business days.

    If you wish to pay with PayPal or another credit card when the item arrives, please contact us via email at [email protected] before the anticipated arrival date. We will send a payment request when the pre-order item is ready to process instead of charging your credit card. In the event (it does happen) that the manufactures has multiple shipments or if we are unable to fulfill all pre-orders by the release dates, Pre-Order reserves will be on a first come first serve basis after Pay in Full customers. Items will process and ship out as it become available.

  3. We never/rarely over sale our pre-order items, so majority of the time you will be able to get your Pre-orders when you reserve with us. In the rarest case that we do accidentally over sale an item, we will notify you promptly of such an incident. Please subscribe to our newsletter to keep up with delayed release dates and shipments of products.


Steps for Pre-Ordering

Pre-ordering is simple, just find an item that is set to be release soon, either through our main online catalog or through the Pre-Order section, add the item to cart and checkout! Once done checking out, you will receive a confirmation of your order and when the pre-ordered item has arrived at our warehouse, we will notify you of shipment! Please add our customer service email to your contact list to ensure delivery of our emails, [email protected]

What if my cart has item(s) that are not pre-orders? Or my shopping cart has multiple pre-orders that have different release dates?

If you are purchasing pre-orders that have different release dates, we will ship those separately, as they become available and there will not be any additional shipping charges.

If you are planning to purchase in-stock item(s) along with pre-orders, please checkout with your in-stock purchase first or vice versa. In-stock and pre-orders cannot be combined together at the moment due to multiple reasons, therefore, we ask that you place those orders separately so your orders can be fulfilled in a timely manner.

Pre-Ordering Cancellations

Due to the abuse of our no deposit pre-ordering system - You have 60 days from the DATE of your pre-order to make any cancellations or adjustments. If you decide to cancel a pre-order after 60 days from date of order, a 10% fee will be imposed and will be deducted from the refunded amount, or an automatic account suspension. We will honor cancellation anytime before 60 days without any fees but please do within 60 days of placing your pre-ordering.

Account Restrictions

Unfortunately, due to many customers abusing our no deposit required pre-ordering process, we have had to place the following restrictions

  • Please know that if you wish to cancel your pre-order, it is required that you contact us to process your cancellation. If you decide to cancel and not inform us prior or decide to not respond, your account and shipping address will be automatically banned from shopping with Anime Blvd. If you wish to be reinstated, you will have to contact us for more information.
  • If you Pre-Order and cancel near or on release dates, your account will be restricted to only in-stock purchases and only Pay-in-full Pre-Order(s) on all future orders. Once you have successfully made an in-stock purchase or fulfill your Pay-in-full Pre-Order(s), your account will return to normal.
  • If you have more than 3 pre-order cancellation without reinstating your account, your account will be restricted to only in-stock purchases, Pre-Order(s) will not be allowed and all orders will be cancelled by the system


Removing Account Restrictions

If you wish to reinstate your account to normal, you must make in-stock purchases to offset any cancellations request. *Accounts that have or had fulfill multiple Pre-Orders and purchases will not have any account restrictions unless there are large numbers of cancellations that offset account purchases. Our system automatically determines account restrictions and our customer service team are unable to bypass this. Just be mindful, we are very understanding but don't abuse the system for other customers
