For the fashionable otaku!
Uniqlo’s UT collections are always fantastic, but what could be better than a Dragon Ball focused one? With so many different designs to choose from, this is the perfect gift for a Dragon Ball fan.
About the collection: “Dragon Ball” is a globally beloved manga that has been adapted into an iconic television anime. The show tells the story of good-humoured and lovable heroes who embark on an epic quest to source the seven Dragon Balls.

Fruits Basket is a touching romantic comedy, with a twist. This brand new adaptation of the popular series is a must-watch for fans of the original, the manga and newcomers.
After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, 16-year-old high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out… into a tent! Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Soma clan, and it isn’t long before the owners discover her secret. But, as Tohru quickly finds out when the family offers to take her in, the Somas have a secret of their own!
My Hero Academia is one of the biggest shonen series out there, it’s packed with incredible heroes, devilish villains and a world any superhero fan will fall in love with.
From studio BONES, the creators of Fullmetal Alchemist and Soul Eater, comes My Hero Academia, a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class. Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where 80% of the population has some kind of superpowered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.
For the Titan slayers!
Koei Tecmo’s Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle allows your to experience the show’s breathtaking story in a brand new way.
