About us/ Our Vision
Established in 2022, we’re a new mom and pop anime shop located in Eau Claire Wisconsin. We specialize in Japanese anime/video game related products. Everything from statues and figurines to TCG/CCG (Trading Card Games/Collectable Card Games). Our inventory is constantly growing so check back often!
Fun Fact: The name "Sho" derived from my favorite 80s Ninja Master movie star Sho Kosugi and my favorite anime growing up Bio-booster Armor Guyver's protagonist Sho Fukamachi. Also it was a short lived nick name I took on as a kid growing up because teachers and people I met could never pronounce "Shaolin" correctly. I guess they've never watched kung fu movies growing up haha.
Meet the owners!
Shaolin and Mai Yang
Growing up I’ve always loved anime toys and figures. There was always a few problems I had:
- There wasn’t any place near me that sells mid to high end figures. I was tired of seeing the same low end stuff being sold at Wal-Mart/Target/Gamestop/Hot Topic/Barnes and Noble/Books a Million
- Japan always releases everything months before America.
- Paying “Scalper” pricing
My vision is to have a brick and mortar store that can offer higher end figures to my consumers before it hits the US market (if it even does) at retail prices.
