For all you Toronto based otakus and cosplayers: :jjacks:

Kikiwai just opened a second store up a couple weeks ago up at Metro Square.

As most of you know, their main store is located on Spadina, north of Queen St. West. I don't like dragging myself down to Chinatown unless I'm going to see a movie at the Paramount or something so their new location is fantastic for me!!

Their 2nd store is located on the second floor of Metro Square.

(Metro Square is the little L-shaped mall in the plaza on Steeles Ave, between Pharmacy and Warden.)

I just went there to visit (and do some x'mas shopping) and they're having a raffle for some gift certificates (grand prize $50, 15 prizes in all). The draw runs until Dec. 25th.

:dance: i found the a UFO plush of Atashi (the pink bunny thing) from Chobits up there. KAWAII-DESU!!!

(btw, i don't work for them; and i don't know any of the employees. i just like shopping there....)

how much was the atashi plush going for?
i was planning on buying one ^_^

12-15-2003, 10:45 PM
Do they have a website?

12-15-2003, 11:55 PM

i find it's better to go into the store. i don't like the way their site is laid out.

they always have oodles of artbooks - i've bought some of mine there. (hehe, the rest are from eBay ... :jjacks:

Lainey - the Atashi plushie was $15.99. I think I grabbed the last one, kekeke sorry ^__^-

that's a "decent" price.
Considering you can still get on ebay for cheaper (about 12 canadian!)

12-16-2003, 02:38 PM

I'd go to the store, but Toronto's 3 hours away... Darn Ottawa and Kingston not having any anime places (I know of)

12-16-2003, 06:35 PM

$15.99 is ok ^^" plus we bought so much other stuff, atashi didn't seem expensive..keke

besides, this is Kikiwai we're talking about. nothing there is "bargain priced." Do you remember how expensive their artbooks and plushies were at AN03??

Woot! Perfect location fer me hehe, now I dun hafta drag my butt down to chinatown just to look around nemore xD

Is it near Pacific Mall? I'm horrible with addresses/locations so is it where that Pizza Pizza and Karaoke (upstairs) is? Or am I way off...? =^^=

12-18-2003, 11:07 PM
i dunno...
lets just say if you can get to pacific mall...go there instead LOL

bargains gallore :D

except that most of the stuff at p-mall is knockoffs... ;)

Kikiwai isn't near P-Mall... the only thing I can say is that it'll be next to the new T & T when that opens ^_^'

Hee hee there's nothing wrong with bootlegged stuff like the dvds. =P hee hee

I thought Pacific just mainly carries bootlegged dvds, posters (Taiwan), and gundam model stuff. =_= None of the stores carry ufo plushies, anime cards (official), nor pretty artbooks *sobs*

12-28-2003, 10:46 AM
*some* carry that stuff, but it IS rare!
but i find that if u want artbooks...i'd buy them at a con (bargaining MWHAHAHAA), and things like plushies, u can get them on ebay ^_^

12-29-2003, 10:38 PM
^ yup. eBay is the way to go
