For those who live overseas

 

 

Thank you for always supporting us from far away places.

It's a tough time, but we sincerely hope that everyone is safe and healthy.

 

We've been getting a lot of inquiries lately.

We are not good at English, so we don't know if we can understand you properly, but we will do our best to answer your questions.


“You're not rolling it out with digital content?”

 

We hope to make it available for purchase on Fantia, albeit on a trial basis, soon.

We have not yet published any of our previous works, but we will be selling them digitally from the latest books in the SAO series.

I don't know what will happen in the future because it's a trial, but if it's well received by people living abroad, I'm sure we'll be able to get a good result.

We hope to continue to offer our services in the future.

As soon as we are ready, we will announce it via Twitter.


“Isn't there an English version?”

 

 

This is a very difficult problem.

We're always thinking about this issue.

The problem is, "Can you translate the uniquely Japanese expressions that the characters speak?"

Even in the countries where you live, you may have your own unique way of saying things and expressing yourself.

It's the same in Japan.

You may be able to do it if you just translate the words, but the meaning of the words may change.

The "Monogatari” Series is especially difficult because it uses a lot of "wordplay" that is unique to Japan.

The concept is "not to destroy the original world view", but I would like to ask for a translator who "understands the unique Japanese expressions", 

but unfortunately I have not found one yet.

If you know someone who speaks Japanese and loves anime and manga content, please introduce them to us.

Maybe there's a future where an English version will be released?


“I’d like the actual item, but don't you ship it overseas?”

 

This is one of the difficult issues.

However, we found a service on the sales site we use that solves this problem.

 

 

AOCS(Anime Otaku Carry Service)

 

Tenso.com

 

It seems that you can ship packages ordered by Toranona mail order to overseas through the Tenso.com or AOCS service.

Please check the website for more information.


“Is there any way I can support your work?”

 

Thank you so much!

There is a Creator Support Platform called Fantia.

Fantia is a creator support platform that supports creators active in a variety of fields, including illustration, manga, novels, cosplay, music, and video works.

If you join the free or paid fan club set up by the creator, you will be able to view the contents of the fan club members only, and send messages to the creator.

There are some illustrations that are only available here, so please make use of them.


 

 

We are motivated by the people who support us.

Please share it on your SNS.

 

Here's hoping you can get out of this difficult situation soon!
