I am going to Seattle at the end of the month and was wondering if anyone is from there, or has been there that knows of a good store to buy anime or manga or figures???

As a Seattle local I'd recommend Golden Age Collectibles down in the Pike Place Market. They're more for comic books but they've got a fair selection of figurines and manga there. For gaming try Pink Gorilla in the University District. They also have figures there and the cutest little pokemon dolls.

Definitely try Kinokuniya Bookstore (located in the Uwajimaya shopping center in the International District of downtown). They have Japanese import books, merchandise, figures, CDs... basically a little of everything, as well as English and Chinese language manga. It's a bit pricey because of the markup on imported goods, but you really can't beat the selection.
There's also a Pink Gorilla location not too far from there in the International District as well.

There was a store about a block away from Uwajimaya and the Oasis bubble tea shop that sold a bunch of figurines. It must still be there. I haven't been down there in a while, but it's in the general area of where Uwajimaya and the Pink Gorilla are at.

Looks like you've got some answers, and I'm closing this since it's a persona help thread. In the future please use one of the following threads for such questions:
