Lots of Bargains! Find All Kinds of Second-Hand Anime Goods, We Infiltrate the Annex of Lashinbang in Akihabara!
Lashinbang is Akihabara‘s largest second-hand shop that specializes in buying and selling a wide range of pre-owned anime goods such as figurines and dojinshi (manga produced by amateurs). Just as its motto “Conbini of ‘moe'” promises, the shelves of Lashinbang are lined with just about every type of anime goods imaginable. Although there are two locations in Akihabara, this report will focus on their newly opened (grand opening: August 13, 2014) annex location.
First up is the figure corner! Boxes and boxes of sealed figurines are packed side by side.
Wherever you look, there are goods packed into the shelves and bins! These aren’t just new items either; Lashinbang’s massive popularity is thanks to their wide selection of super-rare, hard to find items.
Here is the wall scroll corner. Looks like anime lovers Saaya and Moko are looking for that special something to decorate their rooms with.
There are cosplay goods sold here too!
And the thing that got Saaya and Moko the most excited, the T-shirt corner! In addition to the customary anime prints, there were ones with wotaku phrases and words as well; it was a treasure trove of interesting shirts! You might be able to find some good presents here.
