As someone who lives in the city and frequents these shopping centres with tons of anime stores, I beg to differ.

May I ask when was the last time you have been to HK? Granted, it wasn't long ago that your statement was half-correct.

I can say confidently that most of the bootleg stores in the last 5 years have more or less decreased in numbers, now they sell mostly bootleg DVD, but they're still no match for the higher-quality licensed ones.

Most of the "merchandise" stores sell genuine figures, magazines and CDs imported straight from Japan, and that includes Haruhi figures, not to mention a doujinshi specialist store as well.
