Tokyo's Mandarake store 'a complete experience'

In a piece titled "Insiders' guide to the world," Sydney Morning Herald correspondent Deborah Cameron (scroll down) writes about one of her favorite places in Tokyo -- Mandarake, the world's largest manga and anime shop:
Mandarake is such a complete experience that you could walk out of the place wearing the full costume of a favourite character and have in your bag other purchases: the pages from the original script, a story board, some rough sketches from the animators' desk, a cell from the finished film, the DVD, a kit model and a copy of the original comic that started it all.
