All The Fresh Nerd Heroin You Could Ever Want

On July 2, Animate is opening its latest super store in Shinjuku. If you've never been to an Animate, they're like hypermarts. For otaku.

This latest Animate is no exception, with its four floors packed with anime, manga and game goods. Need Inazuma Eleven shirts? Neon Genesis Evangelion wigs? How about Clamp goods or Final Fantasy figurines?

Animate has you covered. The store carries a whole slew of goods, such as voice actress music CDs, Studio Ghibli goods, otome game goods, video game and anime soundtracks, video game guide books as well as tables, blankets, and Japanese fans stamped with your favourite anime characters.

Have a look around at photos taken by website Gigazine. It's almost as good as going - but not quite.

    So I guess at least some parts of the Japanese economy aren't doing too bad...


    Yea it's good for new manga, everything else is way too expensive. Even the manga is pretty expensive considering you can get it cheaper at any second hand place.

    Do some searching and suddenly Animate seems like a pretty strange place to shop.

    In before whiners saying "what does this have to do with videogames?"

    Anyhow, looks like a great place to spend an afternoon... not to buy stuff at.
