Or, you know, just give them this Dragon Balls and Dragon Ball Radar gift-set from Bandai since it is probably what they would wish for anyway! No fan of the ‘Dragon Ball’ franchise could deny wanting this sweet limited edition collectors set!
Speaking of awesome prop replicas from fan favorite anime series, how could we compile this list without mentioning the Sailor Moon ‘Moon Stick’ replica from Bandai Tamashii Nations? This 1:1 scale 10” prop replica of the ‘Moon Stick’ from Sailor Moon is a faithful reproduction of the iconic weapon from the hit series! It features built in lights and sounds from the show!

Who would we be kidding if we were recommending gifts for anime fans if we didn’t actually recommend any anime? There are always a ton of great buys out there for good new anime, but this holiday season there are quite a few that stand out as ‘must haves’ for everyone! We highly recommend the freshly remastered ‘Sailor Moon’ Season 1 Part 1 Blu-Ray set, the recently released ‘Attack on Titan’ Volume 1 Blu-Ray set, and of course, the all new ‘Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods’ movie Blu-Ray!

Yes, you read that right. You can buy and own your very own full-scale replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton! It’ll cost you around $100K, but man, the bragging rights alone would sure be worth it!
