Summer Greetings

Otome’s Way will be taking a short summer break as we try to beat the heat! From July 27 to August 2, the staff will break for a bit and be back bright eyed and bushy tailed with more content!

To help tide you over, have this 暑中見舞い (shochuu mimai) from Ai-sensei, which is a greeting card traditionally sent to friends and family during the hot hot summer months to check in on them and see how things are going.

One note: we’ll still be updating In the Palm of Your Hand this week as usual, since this is our final page and we didn’t want to leave everyone hanging. Please look forward to it!

  • 25% coupon (limit 1 use per user) off entire purchase order in exchange for a review of a product.
  • Review must be at least 50 words long and in English. There is no word limit.
  • Reviews do not have to be wholly positive, but critiques are requested to be as constructive as possible to help other potential customers decide if a book is for them.
  • Reviews MAY be posted off-site, but must also be posted in the Review tab of the product page as well.
  • This campaign will run until July 7th, so get those reviews in ASAP!

Ready to submit your review? It’s easy!

  1. Head on over to our official webshop.
  2. Browse our products to find the work you’d like to review; anything goes, from our educational materials to our BL manga to our novel–whatever you like!
