B1F: The event space. This is where limited exclusive shops are set up.
I paid the ANIMATE AKIBA GIRLS STATION a visit! The whole building is a shop for female-oriented anime goods!
Now, ANIMATE is an extremely blue franchise. The interiors are blue, the signs are blue, even the shopping bags are blue. GIRLS STATION, however, is totally white, with a clean feeling interior. And to my shock, there was a chandelier in the bathroom...!
The ceiling reaches up high, and the floors are wide! I saw plenty of women chatting and enjoying themselves as they took their time shopping.
The building makes use of ANIMATE's first collective register system, so you can pay for your goods all at once after visiting all the floors you'd like.
The staff are mostly women, too, so you don't have to worry about buying stuff that's a little embarrassing!
