Was in Osaka last weekend filming for Culture Japan Season 2. One of the places we are covering is Otaroad - its Osaka's equivalent of Akihabara which is filled with otaku goodness and a load of 2D girlies absolutely everywhere!
The first place we take a look at is the Namba branch of Gamers.

Sunday morning 9:30AM. Meeting up with my cameraman and sound engineer to setup equipment before our guest arrives.

Gamers is located at the following location - saw a ton of gaijin in the area so if they can make their way around then so can you. Get there from Nanba station.
大阪市浪速区日本橋3-8-16

There were a load of folks lining up to get in to get hold of their dose of 2D-girlism.

Bump into voice actress Suzuko Mimori and ask if she would take us around Otaroad.

Ready to raid Gamers.

In the midst of going through a ton of 2D-Girlism heaven.

If you are going however, make sure that you keep track of your cash and leave enough to make it back to your hotel - and for food if you really need to eat. Will leave you to wander around the rest of the shop - maybe make photo annotations of everything that you would buy?

Bumped into some readers from Canada and Hong Kong ^o^

Cushion is so cute - small enough to put between your...eyes.

ブシロードのカードがいっぱい!

An area setup for card players.

Trading Card Game accessories.

These boxes are meant for trading cards but I use them for business cards ^^

Gamers however do not have many figures in stock. The reason is that most consumers these days tend to pre-order.
How do you consume?

How do you buy figures?

3 Singaporeans and 1 Malaysian make it big in Japan and are singing anisong (ending theme for Vanguard) - Sea A.

I need something like this for my floors.
