    Default Dallas, TX Anime Shops

    There is a noticeable lack of Anime Shops in the D/FW area of Texas. In fact, the only one i could find was about 45 minutes from home and was outrageously over-priced as well as limited to more main stream stuff.

    I had the thought of opening an anime shop here in Plano so that there is a second choice for price, selection, and distance. By opening a shop in Plano, I would hope that the other shop would feel pressured into lowering their prices a little bit. This would be more beneficial to the other shop's owner as well because he would make more sales if a mouse pad didn't cost $40.

    What does AF think of Anime Shops in the U.S.? For those that are local to D/FW, what do you think of having one in Plano? Suggestions on exact location? What would you like to see in this store if I actually managed to succeed in opening it?

    I'm looking forward to your input!

    I live in dallas and I can't find any stores specifically for anime itself. Sure, I know of plenty of comic or game stores that also sell manga and anime but like you said they're always overpriced. The only thing we have here is a-kon but that's only once a year. Please open up a store. haha

    Plano is too far for me, and I do live in Dallas County =/
    I'd say open up in Arlington. Everything is in there!

    Well, for anime and manga here in SA, I would recommend going to a used book store. I was able to find the entire Fate/Stay Night series and only paid $50 for it, instead of $180 new. And for toys here in SA, I have only been able to find them at one flea market.
    There is no absolute right and wrong. People judge as right what they personally consider pleasant, and judge as wrong what they personally consider unpleasant. Convincing others of what is right cannot be equated with teaching the Truth. It is just teaching others to agree with you. It is not about putting an end to error, but putting an end to opinions contrary to your own perceptions.

    Being in Texas does not automatically make one a "redneck" >_>

    Regardless, that was an uncalled for and rude post.

    I do have a friend that owns a small anime store in Lewisvile, she has big plans with her shop, but since a lot of items are donated for rent instead of purchase she's wanting to open up a voice over studio for those interested in wanting to become a voice in anime. (literally)

    But, she's had a lot of issues on people backing out on her, and needs help getting this going. This would mean more income for her to bring titles to the US with quality voice acting...and not Funimation type of quality. If you're interested in helping her out you find her under TrashCat Studios@facebook .com...
