j0! We're Anime Yankii.
We're an import anime shop now located in The Vista Shopping Center in Lewisville, TX just north of Dallas. We carry official mainstream anime goods with a niche focus on Yaoi, BL, LGBTQIA+, and Otome. We only deal with legit imported goods, so no bootlegs here. We're also the home of Fully Artomatic / Art Club.
We’ve been all over Texas and some parts of Oklahoma including San Antonio, Austin, and Tulsa. You may remember us from conventions such as AnimeFest, San Japan, IKKiCON, Tokyo, OK, and Ushicon. Yes, we finally got our shop!

The Red Walls: A Backstory
Luan gets very extra ideas late at night and can be very convincing. Ruby finds him adorable.
… That’s pretty much it. 🤷
We went into the project with a general idea of what we were looking for. Use the paint as both color and adhesive to create a background texture for products and displays. It’s a real life Photoshop multiply layer effect.
The Convention Life
We're life long convention nerds; working staff roles even as wee children. There are stories from the pre-cordless phone times that involve cookie bribes to take notes across the convention to other staff members. Memories of walking through half empty convention halls during setup time, barely able to see over the tables. That's how long this goes back. We've worked a myriad of convention jobs. From deep into the staff ranks such as guest relations and programming; all the way to more customer facing roles such as security and vendor. This is just a glimpse into our road life over the past two decades.
