Found 11th Jan 2015
Me and the wife are quite into Anime/Manga and was wondering if anyone knew where to buy stuff for the bedroom, Mainly after a lampshade but eBay bought up nothing.

Thanks

anyone?

Of course it depends on the popularity, and audience of the anime and manga. A popular westernized series like DBZ, Pokémon, Fullmetal Alchemist should be easier to acquire than more specialist or obscure like Clannad or Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya that has a large niche following in Asia, Europe and America. It is possible to obtain these items (wallpaper, lamps, duvet covers etc) from Ebay.com but most are from Hong Kong or Chinese suppliers so might be unofficial or fake. Usually the Japanese sellers use an alternative online auction to Ebay, mainly Yahoo and it is possible to utilise proxy bids.

For popular anime products other than Ebay try Amazon UK, US, and JP (Japan's version with translation), YesAsia, Japanese Shop , Rakuten . Also try Japan-Guide's shop for links.

The other option is attempt to contact a large Japanese department store, or online websites like animate-onlineshop.jp/ . Whilst the language barrier is a major problem some companies do have a customer services representative that should be able help find the products your after. Otherwise try ANN (anime Network News) for advice on specific websites and advice.
