My local video store has no anime, Hentai on the other hand..

Rows and rows of hentai, Dozens of hentai VHS tapes of hentai's such as Onegeki Clinic [ SP? ], There were others to.. but I forget their name. Didn't stare at them as long as Clinic. >_>;


Anyways, does anyone else have this problem with their LFS? I mean, I find it rather obsurd that they have all this hentai, but not a single anime title for rent.

Either you were in the wrong type of 'video store' or you need to start looking elsewhere.

here we have hentai enough -_- junk I tell you.

And the anime we DO have is really old and "known" such as Pokémon and shinchan.

So basicly they only sell crap here.

I think it's the majority that calls for hentai. most people think you're perverted if you "like" anime since all they remember is Anime being nothing but filthy porno movies. -_- if they only knew...

Be thankful you can even get hentai :P

Round here, even the big highstreet chains carry very little anime (and mostly older shows) if at all. And I dont know of any independant stores in the area that are good for anime either

Unfortuantly thats the same all over. Here its either sickening kiddy stuff or porn. No in between.

Needless to say, I dont admit to watching anime around here.......

You can ussually find at least a few movies at the places here in Maryland.

Mainly you'll see:

Akira
Ghibli Studios movies
Fatal Fury movies
random Ranma 1/2 eppisodes
Pokemon stuff
Cowboybebop
Street fighter movie....

and then there are random things like an OVA of slayers or something...

The best bet for anime around me is, believe it or not, Wal-Mart.


And Barnes and Nobles.


Heck, I even got my Excel Saga Set [ All DVDs ] at Gamestop!


But those arn't rental places.

it's a shame Warehouse is starting to disappear (they rely of sales of CDs, and other places sell them cheaper and in greater quantities...so the one near my house is one of the only ones left in my entire city) they have 1 hentai for every 2 "normal" anime ^_^

Wow, guess my video store is pretty good compared to others. Some of what ive rented there:

Ghost in the Shell
Spriggan
Cowboy Bebop the Movie
Berserk, entire series for rent, got me addicted to Berserk.
Blood the last vampire

Others ive seen on the shelves are Vampire Hunter D, Sin, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Ninja Scroll, all of Evangelion, and Steel Angel Kurumi. Steel Angel Kurumi always seems to catch my eye with that box art . Probably alot more but can't think of any others ive seen. They use to have Akira but its not there now, I have yet to see that anime . Hmm, come to think of it I havent seen Pokemon there at all.

i would say walden books too. I noticed my local walden's went from like 1 row of manga to 3 rows of manga, wall scrolls and a wall of anime and plushies/resin statues behind the counter. I guess they know that there a demand but no supply

suncoast video and large chain bookstores might be a good bet and i would think that local small comic shops either have some or could order it for ya. the one here says if he ain't got it he'll order at cost }
and if you really get desperate ebays has tons of cheap ripped at home deals i'm sure you could live with.

don't go through a medium like a comic book store to order stuff
if you have a credit card, there are some online stores (Barnes and Noble for instance) that let you order stuff with no sales tax (depending on where you live) and free shipping (if the order is over a certain amount of money)

Same situation here.

My local video store has some anime movies and a few serials that have already aired on TV like DBZ to rent (about 20-30 VHS tapes or DVDs).

They have more then twice as much hentais (70+) .

Not a good situation for an anime beginner like me.
