The statement has been sent to the subscribers by email, telling that until the very date of the closing of the shop, there will be a huge sale on most of the products in there. Some of the percentages are -50%. Every fan who wanted to buy directly from the company and the ones who have or wanted to buy Crunchyroll and Aniplex items through Bandai’s online store will feel the loss.
