What is Animate?

Animate is a complete shop for anime, comics, and games.

There are more than 100 shops across Japan (as of July 2013), gathering countless anime-related goods to fire up the spirits of anime fans.

Due to the rising popularity of Japanese anime, the Ikebukuro and Akihabara stores are visited by many people from overseas, purchasing goods that can only be obtained at Animate.

More than just selling goods, Animate has also become a base of information where you can experience the cutting edge of Japanese anime through the music videos and theme songs playing inside the stores.

If you come to Japan, by all means, please stop by at Animate!
