And while the series have been immortalized in your hearts and minds, it is through stores like Otaku Middle East (Otaku ME) that bring the characters, robots, and other iconic items to life in the form of toys and collectibles. “Nostalgia plays a big role as well as many customers recognize the characters from Japanese anime that they watched when they were younger,” said Otaku ME’s Sales and Marketing Executive Ali Alamar.
