Guide books did warn us but we went there anyway. One small room, with lots of Anime drawings and Anime film showing on a large screen. Haphazard layout - no sign of any English explanation ... really where was the interest value? Well actually it was in the people visiting who were deeply asleep in the comfortable chairs in the rest area. Just wish we'd had time for a snooze too. Don't bother going here - instead just walk the main road and pop into the shops for a wild, different Anime experience. Oh and try a Maids Cafe - now there is an eye opener

Went there in June 18, 2013. Exit from Akihabara ast you will find AKB 48 Shol and Cafe, next to Gundam Cafe. On right side, there is UDX buikding and its on the 4 th Floor. Not much to see since its only occupied 1/4 of the floor. Even Anime cafe at AquaCity is more interesting for my 12 yrs old girl.
Nice building. There is supermarket on ground level and Tully coffee shop next to it. Lots of restaurant at 2 nd floor. And across the building is Animate, 7 Floors filled wuth anime stuff.

Japan is quite famous about gaming and comic. This is the center of Japan about gaming, comic and related stuff. We got into a store, there were so many gamer there, from different ages. You can find some good stuffs with bargain price there as they are sold as second-hand items.

There is only one room and it has anime from only one show. We were not familiar with the show and so it was even more disappointing. There were also no English translations, and the video that was playing was a commercial. In the attached gift shop, sex toys were among the souvenirs. It was not a good place to bring my 13-year old son.
