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.

Emotional video shows blind dog welcome shelter carer in Egypt

CAIRO: A touching video of a blind dog who recognizes the voice of his shelter carer in Egypt has been touching hearts on social media. 
The footage, initially shared by a Facebook user named Ahmad, shows a Whippet overwhelmingly welcoming the rescue shelter worker and playing with him.  
The man in the video is heard calling out the name “Arafa” a few times before the blind dog recognizes his voice and runs towards him. 
“He’s blind, has never seen me before, and doesn’t recognize my looks, but he can feel,” Ahmad wrote in a caption describing his video.
Stray dogs are found on every street in Egypt, posing a challenge for the authorities. They are often blamed for adding to traffic and being unsafe to pedestrians.
Rescue shelters have become popular but still face difficulties in receiving donations to care for dogs.
