Funny thing here, usually they pack all items in huge carton boxes. Yep, even if you order one doujinshi, one keychain or a keyholder etc., they will take a large and heavy carton box and stick everything to the bottom. Don't even imagine to ship your order from Melonbooks in a SAL Small Packet or ePacket without repackaging, it won't fit into small packet size limits.
