Otaku Tachi @Singapore Sunshine Plaza

SAM_2221

I had chance across this interesting Anime shop, which actually caught my Sparkly Eyes during my walking session. Relocated to Sunshine Plaza in August 2014, it was also the timing when I almost missed out on this Anime shop.

Sunshine Plaza used to have a few Anime shops, until they were close down, and the only shop that caused me to go there would be Hobby Art Gallery to peek into a few Gunpla.

Ok, I’ll be honest that I like the fried Wanton over there, and my name cards were being printed over there. And it just so happened that I went down to print my name cards and was having some fried Wanton noodles for lunch that I was able to catch the shop on one side of my Sparkly Eye.

When I entered the shop, I was shocked to see something which the shop offered, in which most other Anime shops do not offer; Anime Merchandises and Accessories.

Of course Otaku House and Comic Connection do sell Anime products in Singapore; even Kinokuniya in Singapore is starting to step into this.

But what I can tell is that you will be unable to find what Otaku Tachi can offer, in which other shops will be less likely to.

So if you wonder where the place is or what Anime product you can look out for, just peek below with your Sparkly Eyes.

Nagakun’s interview
Considering the amount of Anime products I had seen inside the shop, I just had to showcase and share this shop out to many, since it isn’t easy to find one simple shop that focus on Anime merchandises and accessories in Singapore.

And the only time that Singaporean are able to grab hold to even one are mostly during Anime / Manga related events in Singapore like STGCC or AFA.

I was given the honor and time to interview the boss of Otaku Tachi, Mr Jeff Lee.

What give you the idea of opening an Anime Shop in Singapore?

Jeff: It’s my hobby itself and I like Anime merchandises. I got my collection since 15 years when there were other Anime Shops that were running in Sunshine Plaza previously.

It’s like a dream to open my own Anime Shop.

I noticed that your shop focus mostly on Anime merchandises and accessory unlike other Anime Shops I’d visited is this where you focus your shop direction?

Jeff: I had visited Japan quite often, and noticed that there are many Anime merchandises and accessories shops over there, and most Singapore Anime Shops doesn’t cater much of the merchandises or accessories.

We felt that we should cater Singaporean Otaku / Collectors with inexpensive Anime Accessories which a customer could afford and own.

SAM_2212

What challenge had you faced when you first started out at Bishan before relocated to Sunsine Plaza?

Jeff: When we started out in Bishan, it was a very small outlet where we co-share with another Trading card game shop.

Female customers don’t have good shopping experiences due to the limited space, and the amount of male customers that hang out in the outlet.

Another thing to note was that most Anime product were keep inside a glass display set, which act as a barrier, and many customers would just stare at the item and not daring to ask to check the item out and having near to no interactive to see the anime product.

Once located to Sunshine Plaza, we cater the shop by section, with one side mostly for female customers and the other side for male. I want the customers to easily browse the item while being at ease and having the interaction with the anime product before they deciding whether to buy it.

Another worry from customers was bootlegs item. I can assure that we do not bring those, since I’m also a collector myself.

Many had the impression that anime product from Taiwan being in-superior to those from Japan, while some mistaken them as bootlegs due to quality, however some anime products from Taiwan do have their quality and we do bring in licensed product into our shop.

SAM_2210

How do you showcase your product to the customers if they’re unable to come down to the shop?

Jeff: Most of the items that are in store are showcase on the Otaku Tachi Facebook, since customers can easily acquire via their phone Facebook apps.

Is there any other Anime products that you wish to bring into Singapore to sell?

Jeff: Japan does offer a varieties of exclusive and not-mainstream item, like stationary and CD. I had received requests from customers about bringing in Love Live concert live DVD, but due to MDA rules and regulation; it’s a difficult task for us.

Even during import, they are subjected for approval. However we are looking into other ways, and hopefully to bring in more different varieties of Anime products.

Do you have other plans for Otaku Tachi?

Jeff: I wish Otaku Tachi will be like a small-scale Animate in Singapore, and hope to expand to nearby region like Malaysia and Indonesia in future, selling Anime products ranging from small scale accessory to even limited edition figurines.

SAM_2205

In order to know more on each anime products, I believe you do follow a few series of Anime personally, so which Anime do you prefer for this year?

Jeff: For those that I had seen, I would say No Game No Life, and I’m looking forward to Psycho pass 2 for the upcoming season.

Do you want to bring in more of those anime-related products?

Jeff: We do bring No game no Life and Psycho Pass series items, and we are looking into bringing in exclusive items and limited edition figurines to cater for customers.

Anime Festival Asia 2014 is nearing, so are you applying for a booth?

Jeff: Yes, and we hope to bring in a few exclusive anime products from Japan if possible, on top of the anime products that currently on store.

Nagakun’s Personal notes
The shop do offered Anime products that even new Otaku, or old collectors can take a peek first before grabbing with their clean hands.

The boss do prefer customers to have some interaction with the products; meaning to say that the customers can pick the item up, peek carefully before considering whether to buy it or not.

I like this idea, since I was able to grab a nice Hatsune Miku Strap from COSPA, which I been itchy to grab with my clean hands with times and times of consideration.

I’m sure that many customers are afraid of bootlegs Anime products, however the boss (and even I myself) can assure many who wishes to head down and buy a few from Otaku Tachi, will be heading home with a smile on their face.

There were a few nice displays of Anime products, and the Love Live display product in the middle of the shop did activated my Sparkly Eyes.

Plus they do take in pre-order for figurines, so you can head over to check out with them if you’re interested.

Otaku Tachi also offers inexpensive Anime products which you might need some luck in order to grab the one that you like/want.

SAM_2201

Nagakun’s final View
I would admit that for a place that located in the central of Singapore, one can easily go to the shop to peek for some nice Anime products.

Plus the prices for the Anime Accessories aren’t that expensive to top it off.

If you want to grab some nice Anime Merchandises and/or Accessories, be it for your bags, hats, keys, hand-phone or hand-held console games like PS Vita or 3DS; get ready to plan your Walking Session down to Otaku Tachi to check them out.
