where can i buy anime related stuff

leo leo, Living in Japan

It depends on what kind of genre you're looking for. It's anime for boys, you should go to Akihabara. For girls, Ikebukuro would be better. In any case, the shop called Animate has plenty of lineups. Besides Akihabara and Ikebukuro, the shops are also in Shinjuku and Shibuya.
