Bacolod Fans of Anime rejoice! A new shop dedicated to catering to the inner anime fan or otaku in you has now opened! It is the first shop in Bacolod to cater soley to Otaku fans.
Yuya is a shop that specializes in selling Anime goods, posters and cosplay accessories. They’ve opened on the corner of La Salle Avenue/B.S. Aquino drive near McDonald’s La Salle.
The place is PACKED with students/otaku geeks/giggling fan girls. Yuya sells all sorts of things that will satisfy any anime fan.
We were amazed to see such young fans of Anime especially schoolgirls! Anime has such a huge universal appeal!
We were very interested in their displays of Kimonos and their cosplay accessories. These ranged from jewelry to wigs and even to geta, Japanese wooden sandals.
Now for serious collectors, Yuya probably isn’t the thing for you. Quite honestly these are all cheap goods/imitation/knock offs. There is nothing that would catch a serious collectors eye. However they have a few good items such as their costumes, kimonos and hair dyes. There is great potential in this tiny little shop and we really want it to succeed. This is a huge contribution to the local Cosplay and Anime Scene in Bacolod. Yuya has just opened and it is quite disorganized. Newly arrived merchandise was just piled in boxes when we visited. Posters were piled up in one area and spilling out of boxes.
For us, it seems that Yuya hasn’t really decided whether to go the cosplay goods route (hair dyes, costumes, etc.) or specialize in toys and posters. We hope that Yuya arranges its toy displays, posters and goods in a manner that is attractive to customers. We also hope that they get some really good special anime stuff in (read: GENUINE) to attract the serious collector or the cosplayer.
We wish Yuya the best and we would like to shake the hand of the owner and say: THANK YOU FOR OPENING THIS SHOP IN BACOLOD!
