FEATURE: "A Certain Scientific Railgun S Only Shop" at Animate Akihabara Store

Famous otaku store in Akihabara welcomes the "Railgun" fans

The end of April through around May 5th is called "Golden Week" in Japan since there are many national holidays during this period. We have three consecutive holidays (April 27-29) and four holidays (May 3-6) this year. Most of Japanese offices close for a week and people take a vacation and travel around the country or abroad.


Of course the Akihabara town in Tokyo is one of the most crowded tourist attractions during this time. Many otaku-oriented shops in the area are now offering special events and campaigns. Animate, the largest retail chain of anime, games, and manga in Japan, has opened a special "Only Shop" section featuring A Certain Scientific Railgun S at its Akihabara store. You can get most of their Railgun character goods including limited items for the event all at once. The section will be opened till May 6th, the last day of this year's Golden Week. Check the inside of the shop!
