To all the Canadians out there!
I'm getting tired of waiting for fansubbers (not insulting them) to sub older Kamen Rider seasons. So I wanted to know if anyone has seen older KR seasons with english subtitles at Pacific Mall?
I have seen full seasons of Kamen Rider for sale there, but only a few, Blade and Ryuki IIRC.
Anything would help
Damn, you're a few years too late... >_<
There USED to be several stores that sold Kamen Rider DVDs at Pacific Mall.
Particularly good was a store called Tokyo Anime... they had Sentai, Kamen Rider, Ultraman, GARO, etc.
They had Faiz (which I got there after the store owner recommended it to me -- which actually made me a toku fan afterwards XD), Ryuki, Agito, Kuuga, Blade, Hibiki, Kabuto, and even Black & Black RX. For Sentai, they had Boukenger, Dekaranger, Magiranger, Abaranger, Hurricanger, and Gaoranger. They kind of started twindling down their stock on toku during Gekiranger and Den-O.
But now, after my last visit there in August (when I was hoping to pick up some Gekiranger and Shinkenger DVDs), I found out they carry nothing but anime now to my disappointment.

What about other malls like First Markham Place or Market Village??
I saw a store called "One's" in Market Village thats supposed to carry some Kamen Rider, have you heard of it??
Of course I heard of those... actually, I go to FMP a lot.
One's in Market Village USED to be good as well... but now they don't have much. Just like Pacific Mall, it has also become a disappointment now.
This was One's about 2 years ago...
All those things went on clearance for super cheap and they have not bothered ordering more since -- most likely because they didn't sell very well.
First Markham Place, on the other hand, is probably the only place left that still has a fair amount of toku stuff. There are 2 shops at FMP: Toy Square and FantasyBox.
Toy Square has Kamen Rider S.H.Figuarts, S.I.C. figures, trading figures, etc. They are relatively cheaper in terms of prices.
FantasyBox has more of the trading figures, gashapons, candy toys, etc. I was just there a few days ago and I saw they had Shinkenger mecha candy toys, Shinkenger Prop Plus Petit (those chibi Shinkenger figures I got -- see the hauls thread), Girls in Uniform figurines (Sentai, Kamen Rider, and even Ultraman GiU), plus lots more...
Both stores can do special orders too. However, if you're hoping to get things cheap, I would advise that online is the best way to go. If you love the thrill of picking up stuff in person, by all means... go to First Markham Place!
If it's DVDs you want... hard to say... you might want to take your time and go from DVD shop to DVD shop at FMP checking around. But I can say that I have spotted DVDs for Den-O, Kabuto, Blade, and more.
BTW, if you don't know Chinese, you might want to be careful and make sure the DVDs you buy have English subs on them. Some are Chinese subs only.
One's did look pretty sweet lol
FMP looks like the place I might have to go, hopefully I can get some KR DVD's, i'll see what their prices are for special orders. Market Village looks like it might have some decent stuff too, I checked their website and it showed promise
I have seen KR in a few stores in Pacific Mall, but that was a while ago, I hope to get Faiz, Black and RX on DVD. I will definatly take your advice and ask for english subs
I'm doing all this research because this weekend i'm free and i'm making it my weekend mission to get some KR DVD's lol
Do you have the website for the stores.
