We’re always excited to meet anyone who loves these imports as much as we do. 


Hear what some of our regulars have to say.

“I was beyond excited to find a shop like this in Tucson. The store has all kinds of great imported products for Japanese card game enthusiasts. This is a wonderful niche, and Otaku fills it perfectly. The staff is friendly and helpful and all around good people. They run a wide variety of events and everyone is warmly welcomed. I have made many a new friend between these walls and look forward to playing there every week.”

Richard Dobson

“Locally owned shop that sells a wide variety of product at great value prices. Products include trading cards, local art, action figures, model kits, and supplies for said hobbies. Local trading card game tournaments for Dragon Ball Super, Vanguard, Final Fantasy, and many other Japanese TCGs are played. This is a great place to meet up with friends and try out new card games that most stores don’t sell product for.”

Julian Gonzalez

“While small the owner is friendly and knowledgeable. The regular patrons will also help answer questions or teach the games. Regular card tournaments and other events are held and release schedules of new card sets are displayed. The shop also has a nice selection of model merchandise and hosts local artists products as well.”
