I'm trying to remember the last time I shopped at Hot Topic. When did they first start selling Naruto headbands? Nearly a decade ago? Good lord.

Ah well, I guess it's still good advertisement.

Hottopic- the coolest place to go shopping when your 14

The worst place to shop when you're 24.

Wallet say goodbye to your friends.

The cost of fandom! People are willing to pay it too! And then 20 years in the future it is a collectible!

What are you going to shop for?!



Nothing, because all they have is mainstream anime.

DBZ
Tokyo Ghoul
AoT
SAO
Naruto

Again nothing wrong with what they are selling just all stuff most of us don't want.

Now...if they actually get the Sailor Moon pops in. I'll stop in for those. :)


I saw

Haganai
Free!
Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches
Sailor Moon
Akame ga Kill
No Game No Life
Danmachi
FMA
NGE
FLCL
High School DxD

Granted some of them were just wall scrolls or a single print shirt, but they did have quite the variety even if the one with the most merch was Pokemon

I didn't see that many anime related items on the web site. Maybe I just have poor browsing skills...?

Here you go

There's a couple of Yowamushi Pedal shirts which is unexpected but great. There's also Haikyuu, Black Lagoon, Wagnaria, and JoJo's too. The variety is good much better than previous years. I remember 10 years ago the only anime stuff they carry in stores was Naruto and Bleach.

That's cool of them. That's also a great word-play choice. Unfortunately 20+ for a t-shirt is a bit pricey, and for that you need to have some stellar designs, and most of their designs are quite... pedestrian. Also, most the shirts seem to be missing A LOT of the sizes (i.e. only small and medium available) of the 7 possible sizes. Another only had small and EXTRA SMALL. Really? C'mon, we're talking about anime fans.

Given this one can only conclude that this is a veiled attempt to get rid of their backlogged inventory (of which, if that is the case, these should be severely discounted). C'MON HOT TOPIC!

I mean, I love Puella Magi Madoka Magika, BUT I'm not paying $27 for a g'dam t-shirt of it.

I've stepped into a few stores and it was almost like if some of the tables at your typical anime convention were given a whole store to show off their wares. They even had t-shirts from Parasyte that I was tempted to buy.
