Although I find myself being drawn to Otaku House when I visit Plaza Singapura, I seem to leave the shop really quickly as well. Perhaps the shopfront is too small to contain its ambitious ideals - to contain a little of everything, such as cosplay costumes, trinkets, soft toys and the like - and as a result, it has too little in each category to hold the attention of the buyer. I feel that it's pretty good for those who have just started out on anime, or those who only like mainstream anime, but for die-hards, it'll be hard to find anything of interest, and the craftsmanship of the items are usually pretty disappointing when compared to the price.

It's original and one-of-a-kind, definitely a place for otakus to visit. When I used to get into animes and cosplaying, I frequented the place a lot. One thing I cannot get over however is the overpriced nature of everything in the store. I know that merchandise is naturally more expensive but otaku house really jacks up the prices.

I remember I wanted to get a death note notebook that was really alike and distinctly being rejected by the price. For a store that targets students and youths, I think their merchandise are a little impractically priced. Other than that, I love the ambience and the variety of merchandise that they sell there. But it seems that it is a little too convenient for me to walk past it now without even glancing inside the store.

So my company D&D theme is "Around the world in 80 days!"

My first thought would be a Japanese Cosplay suit from Otaku House, having went into the shop several times to have a look but didn't purchase the cosplay clothing due to not seeing the need for it and the hefty price tag. Here's finally a reason to do so!

Went to the branch at Suntec City (which has closed down now by the way) to try on different outfit. Characters from Full Metal Alchemist, HunterxHunter, Katekyo Hitman Reborn and many others whom I don't even know which anime they are from came to life. Even my gf who doesn't plans on purchasing anything tried on 1-2 outfits just for the fun of it. The store attendant was warming, allowing us to take our time in choosing and changing (which took almost an hour), never displaying any signs on feeling fed-up with us.

Finally decided on the Hibari's school uniform from KHR. Although the material is bad, the inner white shirt can't be worn for any other use due to its thinness and coarse feeling, the school uniform outlook feels Japanese to me and I love the Jacket, which was black outside and red velvet inside that gives a chilling and smooth touch. Sad to say, the outlook didn't turn out well at the D&D, where many other mistook the Japanese cosplay school uniform as a China communist party uniform.

I visited Otaku House while shopping for Halloween costumes with my friends. I am not into cosplay or anime (OR manga) so I am unable to recognize the costumes they have for rental there but they seem to have a pretty good range. Otaku House also sells product replicas from Japanese anime like jewellery at what I assume to be pretty affordable prices, so it's a good place for fans to have a casual browse around the shop.

Surprisingly, I also found that one outlet sells soccer team badges, and I got rather excited as I am an ardent fan of Arsenal. I'm not sure if they are sold at every outlet and if they are even genuine but they are cheap so why not??
