Only "Japanese" things in my town is those shops that sell anything from Arabic spices to South Korean noodles.
┐(´_`)┌

Most of the stuff I've got, I bought online or in Japan.

Seriously though? Why?

Exclude Anime Matsuri and the annual Japan Fest,(which I've never been to)
we literally have nothing anime or Japan related here.
No anime/manga cafes, maid cafes, shops. nothing. Pretty boring.

any ideas why this is?





Dude, you have a fucking 99 Ranch in Houston.

There is only one store in the entire state of Arizona that's dedicated to Japanese media and they are located in a ghetto mall.

My town has nothing Anime related well it has box sets for $100-200 per season!!!!

I would rather use crunchyroll and other sites and for shows that i can't get ....stream seriously i'm all for buying anime and manga like manga was $5 where i lived before the store got wiped out in the floods but $100-$200 for a season of an anime and i go through 10-20 seasons of anime in a month.

Yeah...i'm not that rich nor do i believe one season is worth $200 spent atleast $1000 on bleach before i went...screw this.

I guess im breaking the law but i always try to get anime legally first but $200... that's highway robbery!

I'm guessing I'm one of the lucky ones. Since I live in California, there are plenty of stores and food places carrying Asian goods including Japanese/anime stores/restaurants here. While I have to do some driving to some locations (yay, traffic), there are a couple of Japanese grocery stores and a Kinokuniya nearby where I live.

The reason for that is that California (14.4%) has a larger Asian population than Texas (4.5%).

Japan fest was fucking boring. You're not missing anything.

As with the lack of events here, well, let's say it's due to location and timing.
