Akihabara Gamers has received so much of my patronage that it’s not even funny. Despite its name, this store’s focus is anime and manga, although it does have a fantastic selection of Japanese game magazines as well as a whole floor dedicated to video games and computer games. The upper floors typically host card game tournaments and autograph signings. There’s some eyebrow-raising stuff here, but that’s true for most of Akihabara. I actually came here multiple times because I noticed the products changed a little. It could be that I just missed some stuff the first time around given that it has 8 floors!
1F: Mag., new comics, new merch.; 2F: DVDs; BDs; 3F: CDs; 4F: Games, strategy guides; 5F: Comics; 6F: Novels; 7F: Hobby, figures; 8F: Trading card Groudfloor with new magazines on sales and so on. Other merchandise such as K-ON! made cookies or chocolates. Nice for a souvenir. New novels and manga section on the first floor like Sho-Colle. Sophisticated Evangelion stairs. The anime section advertising recently aired series such as Little Busters! DVDs and BD releases as well as anime music singles like Sword Art Online. More CD releases of fall anime. Artist section, where its filled with various merch of the group Sphere. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo Novels with a signed certificate! On that day, one of the floors was revamped and made exclusively for School Idol Project which is scene as the next big thing after Idolmaster. Cardboard depicting the members of the project, anyone you fancy? One of a real made outfit worn by the group in the series. Typical Akihabara staircase found in shops. Floor dedicated to Anime and games but with various merch to purchase such as scrolls, keychain, towels and many others. Another Little Busters! section. Keychains from visual novel Love me Over. Nitro+ section with loads of Sonico products like the comfy and healthy mousepad. Wallscrolls from series and games. I know a couple that would love those Yuri Yuri scrolls. Type-moon section with this lovely artwork and miniature cutouts of the various characters from the works. Sword art Online section with novels and various cards. Stairs, on my way down, love the surroundings, cant complain!
After tagging off the stations exit gate make a turn on your left out of the station where youll see a SEGA building then turn right and make your way to Chuo Dori (main road). The concentrated, multi-floor store should be along the path on your right, check for the big GAMERS sign with its mascot!
