Events Featuring Idols and Voice Actresses
Other than selling merchandise, Animate places great emphasis on holding events. Many animations are becoming a big hit or voice actresses/actors are becoming stars because of these events act as a springboard.
You Can Find Whatever You Want from Their Huge Stock
The reason this store is always packed with people is the overwhelming amount of merchandise. Some foreigners pre-order their favorites before they come to Japan to receive it right in the shop when they get here. You can check their events and merchandise information on their official website.
Attention to Original Items
Animate collaborates with animation companies to create original goods with a certain enthusiasm. Maniacs value the store because it's a unique shop which has goods that are not distributed in public.
