How many of you are satisfied with the Anime and Manga stores in your area?

Me, I wish there were a larger selection of stores. We only have 2 and they both consist of just 1 shelf of Anime and Manga at both locations. Granted we all have Amazon and other Websites but i prefer to see the merchandise in person.

Manga and anime exclusively there used to be only one, which I don't think exists anymore. However, most newsstands here carry a lot of manga (though usually only the most recent volumes), and bookstores tend to have a comic section that has manga lumped together (big ones have a separate manga section too). For anime, I don't think I've ever bought in a store, or even my country's release. I've bought several DVDs from Funimation though (I enjoy reading in english more than in my mother tongue)

Bookstores near me have entire aisles and sections just for manga. Plenty to browse through. The abundance of VIZ, Yen Press and Seven Seas products is great, but isn't all there is. And I still order about half online. Biggest complaint with visually browsing manga is minimal yaoi availability. And when there is, it's shrink-wrapped. (If the series is popular enough to actually make it to bookstore shelves, I'll likely already know about it, so no need for "browsing". )

Anime: I own several, but don't have the chance to watch because I rely on the mobility of devices and streaming too much now. I've made no attempt at finding physical anime locally; it's all ordered online.
