I don't know, I've seen people on ebay from CA selling copies of it. I'm from the midwest (ND if details are desperately needed) and we still don't have ours yet either.

That's odd. The HQ for Shonen Jump Alpha is on the west coast also. You should have been one of the first people to have gotten one...

Finally got mine today. There may be shipping delays because SJ Alpha decided to ship these during the holiday season. In my opinion, the 4th card and yearbook (if they decide to do it again) should be shipped before the holidays in December/January so it doesn't conflict with other holiday shipping. But I am still glad that I received mine.

I got my yearbook afew days after christmas! But, wish that you would have printed the full yearbook! What is the point in printing something if you aren't going to print the intire manga stories? Apart from the YGO card the full print would have been real awesome! A big way to thank us fans!

Hi I still have not got my yearbook yet and I am getting worried I live in new york and I sent a email to shonen jump about 3 days ago what's going on

Submitted by John Bae on Fri, 01/04/2013 - 10:45

Give them some time. If you sent it three days ago, that was on New Year's Day.

Submitted by Rhgrisktaker on Fri, 01/04/2013 - 13:08

Sure I give more time but do u know when shipment will me sent out to New York John ?

I sent shonenjump an email about my yearbook a week ago and have not heard or got anything since then

hi still haven't gotten my yearbook yet, just wondering whats going on with that can anyone tell me

Submitted by DaisukeRei on Sat, 01/05/2013 - 14:43

Like I said in my post earlier this week, I think the biggest problem is that the post offices are just now sending the yearbooks to people because SJ Alpha started shipping these during the holiday season and post offices send things that are priority shipping and holiday related over random things like the yearbook or random letters. So it might not be SJ Alpha/Viz's fault that you have not received your's yet but I do recommend you e-mail them to let them know that you have not gotten your's yet.

Submitted by piti111 on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 18:35

i have been a member for a year and i didnt get my yearbook yet. is that normal?

Submitted by NumbersHunter on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 18:47

Hello, I am a SJ alpha subscriber who have yet to receive his yearbook. Many people living in central North America, the West Coast, and central/western Canada receive their promo cards and year books many weeks after those on the east coast. To prevent further dissatisfaction among subscribers in central and western North America, I suggest that you request the promos to be sent out earlier for those people so that we receive it at about the same time or at least in the same month. More updates about when they are shipped and when we should receive them would be greatly appreciated to ease the stress and worries of the subscribers. Please take these suggestions into consideration. Thank you.
P.S. still haven't gotten my yearbook either so.. yah XP
