    Horrible service; initially told the wait is 30 min. Never promised and after 2 hrs I still had to wait. What are those trying to look busy people?

    It varies every so often but sometimes you can find a bunch books in amazing condition. Lots of great manga as well. Worth taking multiple trips (spaced out enough) to get some good stuff.

    Everything is so cheap here! That they carry plenty of older, often out-of-print anime and manga (albeit secondhand) is incredible. Japanese books & CDs, too!

    One of the best used books/music/movies store in the city. You can find both Japanese and Western media here. Decent prices and you can find yourself looking around for hours. Great for manga fans.

    Bring old books, electric devices for sale, if you find anything you do not use anymore. It will be shared with other people for less price, which is good. Also, you will have more spaces for next!

    Amazing books, manga, DVD and all a huge selection. Fiction English book section is small but can still find some stuff. They do have manga and anime in English/Sub.

    Great selection of used books, music, comics, and electronics. Unfortunately, it's not possible to look up a book in a database. It's either in one of the aisles or not. It's all in the hunt!

    Do not sell books here unless they are in Japanese or you don't care how much they pay you.

    Just like Book Off in Japan. Great for Japanese and English language books. Thousands of CDs and books for $1. Look out for sales - sometimes 5 CDs all for $2. Big used video game selection, too.

    First place I've seen in 30 years selling RCA SelectaVision video discs (although I don't think that they were $1 each back in the day.)

    An excellent selection, depending on when you come you may find some older used manga (English or Japanese). Was surprised they had Mai the Psychic Girl (in English) but no Urusei Yatsura.

    Fantastic selection of manga, cheap anime and J-Pop. Different from Kinokuniya but not in a bad way.

    Check your used discs before buying. Staff will let you if you ask. It's saved me from slashed up TV show & movie DVDs.

    Look in the sale section before anything else. They have multiple copies of the same CD, but some art priced 80% cheaper if you find some in the sale section.
