Actually got up early on a weekend (wut?) and decided to run around to some spots I hadn’t been to in ages on the west side (west of me, anyway)! I really need to do a better job of taking pictures of the outsides of these places, lol. (Sorry for the crap cell phone quality. OTL)
First stop on my adventure was Big Lou’s, a consignment shop/slot car raceway on Sepulveda, where you can find all sorts of interesting things for sale.
I’m pretty sure all those comic book standees are handmade. :O
Afterwards, made it over to Gardena’s Tokyo Central & Main supermarket, which used to be a Marukai.
Another reason to quit this hobby. DX
Here’s an entire section dedicated to Dragon Ball.
It’s a good thing I haven’t gotten into Gundam (yet)!
The Pokemon saw me coming, haha.
While I didn’t buy anything at Big Lou’s or Tokyo Central & Main, I did buy stuff at second-hand bookstore Book Off’s Del Amo and Gardena locations. I impulse bought the Nono action figure since I actually wound up liking Gunbuster 2: Diebuster the second time around and finally completed my (regular version) collection of the Japanese version of Your Lie in April — for much cheaper than what Kinokuniya was charging in-store or even at AX!
