Mandarake Complex

Top choice anime in West Tokyo

This is the original Mandarake, the go-to store for all things manga (Japanese comics) and anime (Japanese animation). Once a small, second-hand comic-book store, Mandarake now has some 25 shops just inside the Nakano Broadway shopping centre. Each specialises in something different, be it books, cel art or figurines.

The biggest shop, Honkan, is on the 3rd floor. On the 4th floor, Mandarake Henya, is a shrine (literally) to classic toys.

You'll also find branches of Mandarake in Akihabara, Ikebukuro and Shibuya.
