About Us

Our family's roots in the bay area started in the 1910s on one side and the 1960s on the other. Over the past few years, our family spent a lot of great time together watching anime, but our three boys were disappointed in the inadequacy of available anime merchandise. Having grown up playing trading card games, the boys realized that there was also a growing scarcity of local card tournament spaces. After much consideration, we decided to take the leap into retail and attempt to fill both needs at once!

We are incredibly grateful for all the welcoming support we've received and hope to become and remain a vibrant part of the east bay anime and trading card community. Please stop by and check out our store!
