Anime Craze

Akihabara in Tokyo is famous as an electric town for all the latest gadgets that you can find from the creativity of the Japanese. Over the years, this place has expanded into electronic games and everything that is associated with it, i.e., anime, comics, action figures, etc.

It is really a haven for those anime fans. I used to be one during my younger days. That's why I like to see all these things even after leaving it for years. I guess when I like something, it is going to stick with me for a long time.

In Akihabara, you can find buildings just selling anime related goods. One floor maybe video discs, another floor for comics, then action figures and models, cards and some limited edition goods on other floors.

There's never lacking in shops selling plastic, ceramic and metal models of the anime characters.

If I were to buy just one figure each for every character I saw, I think I'll need a 40-footer container to ship them back!

Luckily I'm not as crazy about them as I was years ago. If not, I'll be broke!

Some of the figures are mini size, probably just about 2-3 inches tall, but those details they put on to the figures make me feel that they are actually worth the price.

I started to like anime when I saw the series 'Macross' or 'Robotech,' and I think it is still the best anime series ever produced. Well, probably I haven't seen any new ones for years. So, whenever I see those figures, I wish I can take them home with me, especially the fully transformable ones! I wish I can ship this rack back home!

There are not only shops selling action figures. They are also up for grab in electronic games shops. Do you wanna try your luck there? You can bring them home with just one token if you are lucky enough.

There are just everywhere. Even on the street!
