For a place hidden in Little Tokyo, it's an awesome place. They offer all the latest from Japan, and you can find some old anime collectables. They have just recently open a Anime Jungle 2nd Shop...it's an extension of there other shop, and they have great sales on DVDs, CDs & Mangas. If you have to have a collection Anime this is the place to go. But some things are pricey, but they are hard to find items.
What a great place for birthday gifts! They had just what we were looking for for my niece's birthday. And their staff was so nice and helpful. SO rare these days. I'm recommending to my friends with little ones in their lives.
Sometimes you just have to go to Toys R Us. This one shares a parking lot with Costco (ugh) and is always a bit of a mess inside. And it's impossible to find anyone to help you and then you wait a while to check out.
