 Appearances and Mentions 

 

Retailer Directory

The-O Network has created one of the first online anime store directory that allows for users to add, rate, review, stores. With new stores appearing every year and the growing threat of counterfeit products, we are creating a community to allow customers to share their experiences. At the same time, retailers are given free publicity.

With an ever growing list of over 50 verified stores, we hope to create the largest anime store database online.

"Find, add, rate, review anime stores..."
