Solaris Japan vs. AmiAmi vs. Crunchyroll Store Vs. The Otaku Box: The Best Alternatives to Buy Your Anime Merch

The Otaku Box or Online Anime Stores: The best alternative to buy your anime merch online
November 2023 Anime Box — The Otaku Box

The Internet gave us, among other things, the possibility to find and purchase anime merch easily, even when there isn’t a physical anime store nearby!

In fact, there are so many online stores now that finding the best one can be a difficult task.

In this article, I will show four places to get anime merchandise that should work for most otakus!

The Best Alternative To Shopping for Anime Merchandise Online AmiAmi: General Anime Stuff

AmiAmi is a Japanese store with a great variety of anime figures, including pre-orders and pre-owned items.

Aside from anime figures, the store sells other kinds of anime goodies like plushies, toys, acrylic stands, and adult-oriented (hentai!) products.

The store ships worldwide, but unfortunately, prices can be somewhat expensive for some. Also, the quantity of the same product items is often limited to three.

Crunchyroll Store: Anime DVDs/Blu-Ray Discs and Manga Sets

Crunchyroll used to have its own anime subscription box service for a while, but now, it has an online anime store that sells figures, clothes, accessories, and more. They also have a great variety of Blu-Ray discs and manga.

However, the store isn’t available to otakus from all corners of the Earth. The Crunchyroll Store offers international shipping, but it has restrictions on products and countries. It’s always a good idea to check the availability of the store and the anime goodies in your area.

Solaris Japan: Anime Figures and Games

Solaris Japan is another Japanese store that offers international shipments! It mostly sells anime figures and games, but other anime goods, such as artbooks, Blu-Ray Discs and DVDs, and body pillow covers, are also part of the catalog.

It doesn’t offer a great variety of products, but it can be an interesting place to find retro games!
