Also, has anyone else been getting duplicate issues in the mail (like getting Jan and Feb when it's march..) Argh, they better get they're act together...baku_neko gettin' pissed....

I got the first three in one month couse my subscription started late.
I'm really pissed that my 4th issue hasn't come yet. It usually comes around when I get my Animerica. I better get it before March ends. :mad:

My friend hasn't got hers yet either.

Never got my March or April yet, but I did get a second Feb issue. I tried looking around on the website to find a hotline or something to call, and I must be blind or they have nowhere you can call about subscription issues.

I have been getting mine, and I only had one problem and with this last issue, they are explaining that they had a computer error. There was a problem with the computer which held the subscription files in it. They are currently working on getting it fixed.

ARGH!!!!!!!! :angry:

I still have not gotten my issue 4 and issue 5 gonna be out like really soon!!! Argh...you know what, I'm just go ahead and buy it from the store. I'm tired of waiting and waiting and waiting for VIZ to get their act together. They should be so embarrassed for their performance right now. Very unprofessional. Ugh...does anybody know their customer service phone number? I wanna yell at them...

I just sent off for mine; I don't expect to be put on the ML until the May issue. >_o;;;; If I'm not reading One Piece by the time it's in the store.... I'm going to kill Viz. I'm going to kill them in their eyes.

Well, I called them. I griped and complained to them and they said they were so sorry and that the publisher did not make enough issues for subscibers and they extended my subscription for free by four issues (Yay!), and they said I would get issue 4 by the end of this month and issue 5 in early april. But I went ahead and got issue 4 at my bookstore, so I'll just sell it to my local used bookstore or something when I'm done with it.

ShingoBunny
03-25-2003, 01:45 PM
Well, that's at least good news ^^. That explains a lot of things. I'll have to tell my friend about this....

TeRRaFLaMe
03-26-2003, 10:05 AM
Grr... I STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN MINE! Well, I'm off to call them. I need some confirmation!!

Does anyone know what the special bonus in issue 5 will be for subscribers? I heard somewhere it might be a free DBZ/DB, One Piece, or Yu-Gi-oh graphic novel...but I dunno...has anybody heard anything...

TeRRaFLaMe
03-26-2003, 10:48 AM
I know a few people online and they got Issue 5 already. They said that there was no bonus, and now they say that the bonus is in Issue 6, and it's gonna be a big poster with original art by the mangakas of all of the JUMP mangas in the USA JUMP.

baku_neko
03-26-2003, 12:15 PM
I knew that free manga thing was to good to be true. Like viz would give that sort of thing away for free anyhow...
Thanxs for the info TeRRaFLaMe! ^_^

I'm just buying mines at the bookstores...no hassle for me...Newtype USA comes out this week and I need to get that as well..

Oshidori
03-26-2003, 10:24 PM
yeah, i got 5 two days ago, and i didn't see anything extra in it.

did you guys finally get 4 yet?!?!

TeRRaFLaMe
03-27-2003, 10:13 AM
GGGRRRRRAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I just called them and they said.... "It should arrive shortly within the next 2 weeks."... WTF IS UP WITH THAT? The way things are going, I'll have Issue 5 by then, and heck, probably even Issue 6! C'mon Viz, get your frickin act together!

baku_neko
04-01-2003, 04:53 PM
Well, I got 4 earlier this week, and 5 came in the mail today. That was fast, I hope VIZ can keep this pace up. Has anyone else gotten 5 yet? Is it just me, or does it seem lighter? It seems like they changed the paper they use. This could be good actually. It might mean they are using cheaper paper so they can put more mangas in and still keep the price the same...

Oh, BTW here's the apology letter they sent me:

Dear Valued Subscriber,

Recently the processing of several subscription forms for Shonen Jump was delayed due to an internal error, and this resulted in a hold up in certain subscriber's magazine delivery. We deeply apologize for this delay, and hope that our faithful readers can overlook this oversight. We are working hard to ensure that our system runs more smoothly from here on out, and we thank you for your continued support and patronage.

Sincerely,
Hyoe Narita
Editor in Chief

I just got volume 5.
Where the heck is my volume 4!!!!!

I don't want to read my volume 5 yet because I need to know what happened in the fourth issue. One of the stories is a two parter and I don't have the first part.

:confused: :untrust: :fuming: :angry: :miffed:
