Mandarake - the company with many shops located around Tokyo that sells a ton of second hand otaku goodies - manga, anime, figures, dolls, trading cards, gatcha and a load of other merchandise.
We previously took a look at the history of Mandarake and some photos of their branches at Nakano Broadway and today we are going to take a peek at some of the photos taken during filming for Culture Japan TV.
These photos are taken at the Shibuya branch which you can get to by getting off at Shibuya station.
A load of illustration books. The prices are very reasonable too which I guess depends on what you are looking for.
Ah, before I forget, you can see more from the Shibuya Mandarake branch in the Shibuya Tour post.
Load of CD goodies including some comike exclusives.
When was the last time you bought a CD and why? Was it to support the artist or because it had something special that came with it or?
And how about DVD's/Bluray?
Mandarake do quite a few bits of doll stuff and even host their own doll event. No Dollfies in stock today though.
They do a load of idol stuff too including postcards and posters.
Most of the floors are taken up with manga and doujinshi.
Took this photo for a specific reason but cant remember what ^^;
Mandarake is also a haven filled with 2D girlies.
Stacks of figures, mecha, gundams ranging from retro to present.
Is this an Ichibankuji? Cant remember but you can get hold of a load.
Want that GFF Unicorn.
Hardly used anymore but they are still made as exclusives - Japanese telephone cards.
A load of retro toys from the 70's and 80's can be found too.
