Anime Jungle

Best of LA, August 2008

Los Angeles is awash in designer vinyl toys, but fans of postwar Japanese classic flicks like De-stroy All Monsters flock to Anime Jungle for old-school kaiju needs. It stocks Kikaider DVDs, Ultraman masks, and perfectly rendered models of every irradiated beast that ever laid waste to Tokyo. The ideal gift for the obsessive who has everything? A limited-edition Godzilla diorama that goes for $2,400.
