Established in 2011 and based in Hull, East Yorkshire, AnimUK was started with the goal of providing officially licensed products at affordable prices and has gone on to become one of the most popular anime merchandise stores in the UK, having been voted Best Retailer and Best Merchandiser by readers of NEO Magazine.
From our distribution centre in East Yorkshire, we dispatch and stock products from a constantly expanding range of anime series as well as a large number of comic, cartoon, TV, movie and video game franchises. While some stores are happy to keep selling merchandise for the same "old school" animes, we keep up to date with all the newest anime series and cult hits as well so that we can better serve anime fans by stocking merchandise from all the series that they love. You'll find a wide range of products on our website from keyrings and wallets to Japanese capsule toys, t-shirts, jewellery, stationery and high quality character statues with new additions almost every week.
Unlike many other anime merchandise stores, we don't sell bootleg or counterfeit anime merchandise. We are commited to selling only officially licensed merchandise. Just like our customers, we are passionate about anime and Japan and we believe our customers deserve the best quality products we can provide. All of the products sold by AnimUK are officially licensed and sourced from reputable, respected and trusted suppliers of official anime merchandise.
Our great relationships with major manufacturers and distributors, as well as our direct connections to the Japanese wholesale market, means that we can offer great prices on some of the most popular anime merchandise available. Our experienced buyers each have over 15 years worth of experience sourcing anime merchandise and regularly travel to Japan to research the latest market trends and meet with suppliers and anime industry figures. AnimUK deals direct with Japanese manufacturers and the Japanese wholesale market so we can import products to the UK ourselves. By cutting out the middlemen and purchasing directly from Japan, we can provide our customers with a wide range of merchandise at affordable prices as well as offer products that you won't find anywhere else outside of Japan.
We're also proud to say that we care about the environment and try to make our business as sustainable as possible. To this end, we've published an Environment and Sustainability Statement which outlines the steps we're taking to reduce our business' environmental impact.
