I chanced upon this store one day after catching a movie at the cinema. (I can't believe I have never come across this before all the time I'm at plaza singapura)

The name of the store itself speaks volumes: it caters to the otaku, or people with obsessive interests in anime or manga. I did not really like the design of shop sign, as it seemed rather childish. Also, the shop space was really small and thus hard to navigate your way through the aisles, especially when there are customers blocking the walkway.

However, the products stocked were rather fascinating to look at, ranging from cute cat earphone jack plugs for iphones to swords for cosplayers. As a cat lover, the cat earphone jack plugs and the cat ears they sold were tempting, however I felt the price costly for students, and that I could possibly buy better quality items elsewhere.

Otaku House is interesting for first-timers, but I feel, loses its charm on the following visits.

A few years back, I was pretty obsessed with anime (I blame my circle of friends, and my friend's brother for the influence), and I would make a trip down to Otaku House just to view the anime merchandise in stock. Of course, that was a pretty long time ago, and I believe it's sufficient to say that I've moved past the stage where I would pay money for little bits of ornaments and ugly rings.

Otaku House basically retails a large variety of anime merchandise and cosplay products. They offer cosplay outfits, from the typical schoolgirl uniforms to even maid costumes, and is probably the one-stop shop for cosplayers, as they can grab their outfits here, as well as any sword, ring or necklace.

Otaku House is a little on the pricey side though. I remember I once paid about $30 for a set of really ugly rings (I never quite forgave myself for that), and I checked back on them a few months ago, and a few of them were rusted. Perhaps the quality of the accessories at Otaku House may be a little dubious, but on the brighter side, the set did contain a considerable number of rings.

There are various plushies and cute soft toys over at Otaku House, so I suppose even non-anime fans can find their calling there. A lovely place, but otherwise overpriced.

Slightly more pricey than Pan In The Box, but more organised.

Otaku House is a very organised place. Their items are placed neatly, allowing you to surf for what you want in peace. However, their prices can be a little cheap.

Their staff are generally helpful, and would be able to account to your needs.

The costumes and figurines are slightly more on the expensive side though, I would not go to Otaku House for their costume, and figurines I would actually wait for events like AFA each year, then they would have a lot of figurines on sale at Robo Robo or La Tendo booths.

I really like their merchandises though, like their anime-printed mouse pads and posters. Good and quite affordable indeed. Still, their costumes really aren't worth the money. You can save more than $100 if you purchase it on Taobao.

Well, if you do not know what an Otaku is, it is someone who has an obsession huge interest in anime, cosplaying and other Japanese related interests, and judging from the name of the shop, one should not expect more than what an Otaku would like, because, well, that's exactly what this place is called!

Otaku House sells a variety of anime merchandise, such as figurines, stuffed toys, and other collectable items. There are cosplay costumes as well, preferably for first-time cosplayers or cosplayers who are lazy/have no time to make their own costumes, I guess. This place would be an awesome place to find a present for a friend who loves anime, because chances is you'll find what the person likes, unless it is some underrated anime.

Of course, Otaku House is not completely just for Otakus. If you are not an anime fan, but like characters like Domo, you can also check out the place if you collect Domo-related products. Do be aware that the things sold here can be quite pricey. Figurines can cost $10 and up, so other bigger items would probably cost much more.

Otaku House is one of the most well-known anime, manga and cosplay related shop known to the people of SIngapore. It is quite easy to spot out their shop from afar as their shop is bright and vibrant with attractive merchandises and costumes for displays. They have a good range of cosplay costumes.

One would be able to browse through the catalogue to see what is available and to see on what are the upcoming cosplay costumes that are going to come out from the stores. It is a pretty good resourceful place for cosplayers. Cosplayers can find props such as kunai, shuriken and katana (some there is an option for it to be either wooden or metal). The price for buying the cosplay costumes is quite reasonable. Otaku House would often have clearance sales or student discounts which really help students who does not have much money and yet have an interest in cosplaying.

Otaku House was my favorite place in iluma shopping mall, I always go inside to that a look for the new featured toys, accessories and soft toys. Though some cosplayers may go there to pick up a set of anime clothings, and wigs, or even anime weapon gears. The first when I went there, I was stunned and amazed by how amazing and cute the place was organized, The wide selections of toys that features hot viewed anime was Naruto Shippuden, Bleach, Gundam Seed, One Piece and so much more for you to see there.

The store assistant were even wearing cat-ears while assisting the costumers in a polite manner, which it looks fun to even be working inside of this shop. There was once I hold up to 2 small boxes of Naruto Shippuden display figure, the store girl offer me a help to get me the ideal figure that i wanted, and she was every experience and would like to test her skills by helping me to guess and get the figure i wanted, she putted one of the display figure in the display glass that i pointed out and wanted, and put into a box and shake it to weight it with her hands. And even bet with me that the box she picked was the figure that i wanted inside, and it was!

That was some amazing and cool customer services that everybody would love to get from that girl! Other then that, all the wigs, rings, earrings were all placed in one set in the display glass which makes things easier for those that are looking for them. Very well organized.

The customer service as well as the wide variety of toys and collections keeps me going back to Otaku House from time to time.

Otaku House is a Japanese-inspired store that sells miscellanous anime-related items such as soft toys and accessories, etc. Most of the stuff found in the store belong to the "cute" category and will have you go "awww".

Although I have been to the store several times, I have not personally purchased anything as I am not really a collector of such stuff. I believe it will be a favorite amongst cosplayers though, as they do sell costumes as well! I recognized some of those costumes, such as those inspired from Gundam Seed Destiny, Vocaloid, etc. They are quite reasonably priced (depending on the character, some cost less than $100).

On top of that, cosplayers are able to find props (such as cat ears, wands, etc) in the store, too, and other interesting stuff that are not commonly found in other places. Probably if you are looking for something that will have you stand out from your company's D&D or events, you will be able to find inspirations from the store!
