Where to find U.Y. Goods


Since so many Urusei Yatsura products are no longer being manufactured, finding certain items can be tricky. The anime and manga are always easy to find. For the more discerning connoisseur who's on the lookout for CDs, Toys, Cels, Posters, Shirts, etc. you have to be tenacious. To help you out with your search, here are some online stores Tomobiki-cho reccomends.

AnimEigo
AnimEigo sells all of their the Urusei Yatsura videos they've translated to English so far through their web site. It's usually even cheaper than going through another online store since this is direct from the source.

Viz (J-pop Mall)
Order the English translated UY graphic novels, and check out some of their other great titles while you're there.

US Manga Corps
They own the rights to the English language version of Urusei Yatsura movie 2: Beautiful Dreamer. If you can't find it anywhere else, you'll definately find it here.

Ebay
If you're looking for rare and unusual Urusei Yatsura goods, I'm sure I don't need to point out what a great resource Ebay is. Do a quick search, and you'll find cheap things for sale that you didn't even know you wanted.

Nikaku Animart
One of the few online anime stores I've Actually used. Their selection of UY merchandise is far better than most.

Planet Anime
I used to order from these guys all the time back when there were only a few online anime stores. Recently their stock of UY stuff has gotten somewhat smaller. Even so give them a try.

Sasuga Books
Retail chain specializing in Japanese language books and books about Japan in English. You can buy the original manga from their online store.

Mandarake
One of the largest retail chains of manga and anime in Japan. I've personally visited their Tokyo (Shibuya) and Osaka stores and it's a manga and anime lovers paradise. They now offer an online mail order sales to overseas customers, in English. They can even take special requests. A great place to pick up used manga, for very cheap. Their online selection is nowhere near as vast as what you'll find in the actual store, but it ain't shabby. With their American customers, their biggest sellers happen to be hentai (since there's no need for translations to understand the plot) so you'll see a lot of it for sale online. But don't let that throw you. Their true specialty is still standard manga and anime.

Animenation
One of the largest North American online stores for anime. They tend to focus on newer titles so their Urusei Yatsura selection isn't all that great, but you might want to check them out anyway.

If you know of any other online stores that have a good selection of Urusei Yatsura, let me know.
