Never went to manga museum, but I seems to be quite a manga of foreign language there.

Nakano Broadway. It is a bit of a walk from the station but well worth it if they are into manga. I'm not but I was curious so I went. I can't say I enjoyed it but I can say they had a lot of small shops in the building catering to a lot of different themes.

There seems to be a small attraction of JUMP mangas which have recently opened in Ikebukuro.

I am quite fond of manga/animes but I am not so knowledgeable about JUMP mangas. Manga Museum in Kyoto is like an archive of mangas, so it might not quite live up to the expectations of your teen lads.

If your lads are under 18, you are strongly obliged not to take them to +18 floors or corners (indicated quite clearly) in Akihabara or Ikebukuro's anime/manga stores. They can be sent out by shopkeepers if they are under-age. Well, there are all sorts of anime/mangas, like there are all sorts of movies.

Well, I just saw Kaze Tachinu by Hayao Miyazaki at a movies theater. That was a work of art. A bit difficult, but thought provoking, with both amazingly beautiful and horrifying moments.

Any other anime/mangas that your lads are interested in?

I do not know foreigners or enjoy, but cartoonist experience can be in the booth of Shueisha in KidZania.

(According to the comments of TripAdvisor, the child seems enjoyed)

It is all right from 3 to 15 years old.

In addition, the pavilion of Shueisha, English is all right.(Koshien)

The Fuji TV, anime one piece is aired.

The F-Island on the 7th floor headquarters of Fuji TV, one piece goods are sold.

In addition, an event called "Odaiba Gasyukoku(United States)" will be held in the summer in Fuji TV.

Among them, there is a one-piece corner year, original goods are sold.

I think maybe, and there is also next year.

I went in 2011, but at that time, one piece of the ship is on display, it was supposed to ride.

Odaiba Gasyukoku is an event that pretty crowded.
