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.
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.
Order the English translated UY graphic novels, and check out some of
their other great titles while you're there.
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.
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.
One of the few online anime stores I've Actually used. Their selection
of UY merchandise is far better than most.
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.
chain specializing in Japanese language books and books about Japan in
English. You can buy the original manga from their online store.
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.
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.
know of any other online stores that have a good selection of Urusei Yatsura,
let me know.
