Whether you’re after Boruto spectacles or glasses from Maho Girls Pretty Cure!, this new store has a huge selection of anime styles to choose from.

Limited-edition anime glasses are one of the things we love about Japan. In the past, we’ve seen styles inspired by characters from Sailor Moon, Sword Art Online, and even Pokémon, but now there’s a one-stop shop where we’ll be able to choose from a huge array of spectacles, all with one thing in common: anime.

Called Animegane (a play on the word “anime” and “megane”, the Japanese word for “glasses”), the new store is being billed as the “world’s first” anime eyewear store, and it’s easy to see why, with every item in their collection connected to the popular genre.

▼ There are styles from visual novel game Fate/stay night


Girls und Panzer.

▼ And Maho Girls Pretty Cure!

While the frames are all beautifully designed, with motifs that fans will love, each pair of glasses also comes complete with a unique case and cleaning cloths that are equally gorgeous.

All the models in the store range in price from 3,000 yen (US$26.44) up to around 23,000 yen for more detailed designs like these Evangelion glasses.

Animegane is set to open its doors on 15 July in Tokyo’s Akihabara district, but for those unable to travel to Tokyo, there’s an online store with a wide variety of styles to choose from.

Whether you want to channel a magical anime girl or add some fighting mecha flair to your eyewear, Animegane aims to make all those dreams come true. So next time you’re looking to go for a shopping spree in Akihabara, don’t forget to pop in to the anime eyewear store to see if there’s a Japan-exclusive model in there for you!
