Anime News Network reached out to BookWalker for comment, and the company confirmed the removal of books from Sol Press and Panty Press.

As part of their remarks to ANN, Bookwalker said:

“These takedowns are taking place as requested by the original Japanese publishers. Users should rest assured that this in no way affects other books in our store.”

However, the company added that it is unable to comment further due to contract confidentiality clauses.

According to ANN’s report, the California Secretary of State’s website lists Sol Press as FTB Fortified. This means that the business was suspended or forfeited by the Franchise Tax Board for failure to meet tax requirements.
