Was in Osaka last weekend filming for Culture Japan Season 2. One of the places we are covering is Otaroad - its Osaka's equivalent of Akihabara which is filled with otaku goodness and a load of 2D girlies absolutely everywhere!
The first place we take a look at is the Namba branch of Gamers.
Sunday morning 9:30AM. Meeting up with my cameraman and sound engineer to setup equipment before our guest arrives.
Gamers is located at the following location - saw a ton of gaijin in the area so if they can make their way around then so can you. Get there from Nanba station.
There were a load of folks lining up to get in to get hold of their dose of 2D-girlism.
Ready to raid Gamers.
In the midst of going through a ton of 2D-Girlism heaven.
If you are going however, make sure that you keep track of your cash and leave enough to make it back to your hotel - and for food if you really need to eat. Will leave you to wander around the rest of the shop - maybe make photo annotations of everything that you would buy?
Bumped into some readers from Canada and Hong Kong ^o^
Cushion is so cute - small enough to put between your...eyes.
An area setup for card players.
Trading Card Game accessories.
These boxes are meant for trading cards but I use them for business cards ^^
Gamers however do not have many figures in stock. The reason is that most consumers these days tend to pre-order.
How do you consume?
Large corner filled with Tohou goodies.
The seiyuu corner.
I need something like this for my floors.
Black Rock Shooter the game out this week!
Edible 2D girlies.
Will cover the rest of Otaroad in a separate post. In the meanwhile, more places to visit in Japan listed up below.
And more from Gamers and Suzuko-san in Culture Japan Season 2 ^o^
