Filipinos who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s would look back during their younger years and be reminded of anime and games with moments closest to their hearts like Goku’s Kamehameha, Voltes V’s ‘Let’s Volt in’ together with its catchy tune, as well as the various Gundams featured throughout the years, to name a few.

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.

Here are the following items that you can easily buy at their shop located at Sunrise Building Showroom, Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Safa 2, Dubai (Near Noor Bank Metro Station, Opposite Side) or through their handy website, http://otakume.com/:
