A manga haven on the Boulevard Voltaire, well known for its retro video games stores. In addition to the all the expected staples of the genre, Manga Story also offers DVDs (both individual and box-sets) of Japanese cartoons. The shelves are literally heaving with Japanese animation series, for long before the invasion of manga in France and the arrival of Dora the Explorer, Parisians were already fans of the abundant and quality animations coming from the land of the rising sun. There are genres to suit all: sports, combat, heroines, and more adult titles like the excellent 'Cowboy Bebop' by Shinichiro Watanabe or 'Paranoia Agent’, a slightly trippy series by Satoshi Kon. This is a great address for anyone looking to infuse themselves with Japanese television culture in Paris.
