It was a waste of a time.. should have looked at the reviews before setting off.. there is nothing to see other than a little shop.

The only reason to ever enter the store is if you are already planning on eating somewhere inside Akihabara UDX and this happens to come across your footpath. It's a tiny store with little to look at, and in the 5 minutes that you will...More

I was excited to come here since it is in Akihabara but there wasn't much there. There were a few One Piece items but others were not as mainstream. Small shop which doesn't have much unless you are a big time Otaku.

It's small and really just a shop selling classic prints and general merch, with overpriced merchandise. Much better shops around Akihabara.

Travel by bicycle all the way here to see a small room of 30+ sketches, little kids shopping for small anima cards, 1 doll figure and few TV screens. All this in a super small room.

The Anime Center is more about being anime central. Many shops, a thriving outdoor market......all selling anime. And there was a lot of it. I'm not an anime fan but I was very impressed with what I saw and experienced. If you're into anime, this...More
