When otaku dream of heaven, it probably looks a lot like this giant store. Mandarake has long been Tokyo’s go-to store for manga and anime, and its Akihabara branch is the largest. Eight storeys are piled high with comic books and DVDs, action figures and cel art just for starters. The 5th floor, in all its pink splendour, is devoted to women’s comics, while the 4th floor is for men. Mandarake’s original branch is in Nakano . Other branches include Shibuya and one in Ikebukuro that specialises in manga for women.
