TOKYO — March 9, 2020: Easy Japanese proxy shopping service (‘Otsukai’) has begun a limited time money back campaign for users of anime and manga online community (‘MAL’). Any user who makes a purchase on Otsukai can enter their unique MAL username to receive a 10% refund on one purchase made during the eligible period.

■About ‘Easy Proxy Shopping Service Otsukai’
Managed by Otsukai, Inc (Toshima Ward, Tokyo; CEO Tetsuya Okamura), Otsukai is a C2C proxy shopping service named after the Japanese word for ‘errand’.
Otsukai allows users outside Japan to upload public descriptions of Japanese items they would like to purchase.
