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.

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?

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?
