Great store in our community. Awesome niche for anime and manga buyers. Mostly reselling used items, so it's a place to find out of print items.
I've visited this shop twice over the past few years. While they have changed locations and the space is a bit of a tight-squeeze, the amount of products that they offer is vast and often includes out of print manga & anime titles! I've been able to find some deep cuts from my childhood. :) Thanks for your service!
So much cool stuff. Yes - there's manga and anime, from the mainstream to the obscure, and figurines and other merchandise to go with it. But this is also a first-class used record store, with a broad selection of local music, too. It can be a little tricky to find the first time you go, tucked into a business park between builders and body shops, but it's well worth the effort. You should go.
Had everything I was looking for in terms of manga. Beautiful selection. Definitely a mom and pop shop but well done.
Love this place. It's my go-to store for manga.They have way more titles than Barnes&Noble, since they sell both current publications and out-of-print comics. The owners are helpful and friendly.
