New & Improved Anime & Manga Stores in Ireland List

So! Here's an updated list of all the stores in Ireland that stock either manga or anime. Of course, buying online is probably your best bet but it's always nice to know what's available in Irish shops. I've linked to the sites of as many stores as I could - for the nationwide ones you can use their site to find a store nearest to you.

I'm always looking for new suggestions so if you can add something to this list, please comment

Finally, here is the original list for reference.

Waterstones: Stock a selection of manga in most store

I love buying in shops, especially since i get some great randoms like generator gawl, red hawk and ray earth... ones i would never have picked online since all the big ones are there that i have already seen and liked but the sad fact is Ireland has no where good. Directors cut in cork is ok but most of the stuff is vol 5 of get backers or vol 3 of full metal panic. I would love a proper anime and manga store but online is the only real option now (Amazon has more but sendit is good too)

Also other relms has a very tiny collection of anime, only whats left of the older store that wasn't sold... its almost all region 1. You get the odd random in HMV but its rediculesly overpriced usually.

Where's the Laser DVD store?

CEX on Upper Liffey St. has some random anime DVDs which are nice and cheap since they're all 2nd hand. Nothing really complete though which sucks ass but it's worth looking as a gem could appear some day!

The Laser rental store I knew of that stocked a lot of anime was around 5 South Great Georges Street. The retail store was around 15 St. Andrew Street.

Hey, today in Waterford I noticed that The Book Centre stocked a nice selection of Manga on the bottom circle near the audio books/sci fi section. Its sort of hard to notice as its just a little rotating stand but still very nice.

Some of the stuff there: Naruto & DBZ . Full metal Alchemist, Death Note, Detroit metal city and about 10 other ones with about 3 copies of each.

So can you add that to the list please.

I am new here, so please be understanding

How about shops with some gadgets? The stall in Georges St. Arcade is cool, but I'm searching for something more.

Anyone could help?

I was poking around HMV on Grafton St. today, there's a bunch of anime DVD's they're selling off hella cheap. Heat Guy J season 1 boxset is a tenner, Hellsing Ultimate are 3.99 each, same goes for The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Origins. I think volumes of Noein (around 5 eps. per volume) were like 7 euro. I picked up Ghost in the Shell 2.0 on Blu-Ray for 10 euro. Like I said, A bunch more stuff is priced similarly, it's worth the browse.

Oh, I must add CEX on Liffey St to this list. They sell second hand DVDs/games etc. and they've quite a few anime titles. Could be a gem or two, depends on what's there! I recently left in a pile of anime DVDs (I needed money >_<) and someone bought them on the spot!

The only place I know of in Letterkenny is the comic book store in the courtyard shopping centre on the very bottom floor. They're really pricey though. I have to get all my manga and anime online.
