  • Prepare your wallet! If you love anime and manga, this is like Disneyland (without the attractions... just lots of shopping). They have almost everything imaginable! Some stuffs may be cheaper online, but if you just want to be overwhelmed with anime related goods, this is the place to go.

  • Not as big as compared to their Ikebukuro store, but still has a lot of anime/manga stuffs. Avoid weekends because it gets super crowded. All official merchandise, so no doujins (unless they're official). Prepare lots of money (I don't remember if they take cards).
