Where We Are Going Today: Anime Station Store

  • In addition to anime figures, the shop also holds a variety of popular video game figures

Jeddah’s Anime Station Store has been a favorite spot of mine since I first visited in 2016, when I was hunting for an action figure for my younger brother.
The store is every anime fan’s dream, holding a variety of products from older shows like “Devilman” and “Nadia: the Secret of Blue Water” to current favorites like “Dragon Ball,” “One Piece,” “Attack on Titan” and “Naruto.”
It is constantly evolving and caters to both hardcore collectors and fans of popular shows. The store has sold figures that were so rare, only 100 pieces were made.
I visited their second branch, which recently opened on Jeddah’s Al-Murjan Street, and I was delighted with the comfortable atmosphere. One of the owners, Majed Nawawi, said that they wanted customers to feel like they were at home.
In addition to anime figures, the shop also holds a variety of popular video game figures, K-pop merchandise and Japanese snacks. Anime Station Store offers home delivery service throughout the Kingdom.

Mo Salah’s doppelganger substitutes him in some ads

  • Ahmad Bahaa is an engineer
  • He appeared in Eyptian Vodafone and Pepsi ads

DUBAI: Ahmad Bahaa’s image went viral last year on social media, for one simple reason: he is the look-a-like of internationally famous football player Mo Salah.

Bahaa lives in Egypt and works as an engineer, but he has also substituted Salah in some advertisements, Dubai daily Gulf News reported on Sunday.

“I do some of Mo’s shots for his advertisements when he is busy with the English Premier League,” Bahaa said I an interview with an Egyptian TV channel.

He appeared instead of Salah in the Vodafone and Pepsi ads, in the parts which are shot in Egypt.

A video shows Salah’s reaction after he met Bahaa, as the footballer himself was surprised by the resemblance.
