There are specialty shops in cities all over the world - without giving us a location you're not going to get anywhere though.

Best Buy (the best selection of any retail store I've gone to)
Borders
Suncoast (if you can find any of em)

Occasionally, Target, K-Mart and Wal-Mart might have some (I was kinda mad when I saw RahXephon disks for $5 at K-Mart after I spent $20 a disk)

EBGames/Gamestop might have some in their dvd bins

Yea - be a bit more clear about what you want as well... "anime stuff" isn't quite the same as "DVDs" - merchandise is a significant associated market.

I see TX in your location space. If that's the case, if you have a Hastings by you, they also have anime DVDs. That was usually where I got my fix when I lived in TX. *^_^*

I can guarantee you if you're near any of the bigger cities (Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio), there are stores that either specifically sell anime (DVDs + Merchandise) or comic stores that also dabble in anime stuff.

They used to have a small selection at Target, but they were all titles whose names were so big that I knew them all (Ex. DBZ, GITS, FMA). That's gone now though.

The only place in San Antonio I use is Best Buy. If they fail to have what I need, I usually go to Amazon.com.

I do recall going to Circuit City once, but I cant remember how good their selection was. I don't know about Walmart.

God I want to murder Hastings... :evil:

They never have a complete series, and never get anything new in. I talked to a manager once to ask when we would get The Melencholy of Hauri Suzumiya or at least the rest of Tsubasas RC (they only had disc one), and he asked why I should care. I told him I'm an anime fan. He calls me a nerd.

/buisness

So now I'm stuck either with the internet or Best Buy in a local town. Though Best Buy is pretty reasonable. ^_^

That sux. The one down the street from my apt in TX was ok. They usually had what I was looking for, and if they didn't, either they would in a week or 2 or they'd order it for me. *^_^* I guess there was more "nerds" in my area. :P
