How to get there?
O-Taku Manga Lounge
Yes ! You can whether buy your mangas or read on site those of our private collection. Click here for more info
You can also buy from our online store : click here
We offer a collection in english and a collection in french, both for buying or reading on site. Also, we offer a small collection in japanese original version, only for reading on site. You have to know that, in manga, most titles are printed in french and not in english, which is why our francophone collection is bigger.
Yes we can ! Each purchase made on our online store can be either delivered at home (with shipping fees) or delivered at O-Taku Manga Lounge (free shipping).
If you are used to buy from the store remotely by paying on the phone, we can still carry on this way.
No. It is very difficult to get mangas in japanese for now and that’s why our original version collection is available only for reading on site.
A lot of parents do ! As long as your children are autonomous, you can drop them off and come back when you have finished your business. We write down all they have during the time in the store, and you can pay when leaving, so you don’t have to leave them your credit card !
Of course ! We only ask to have something to drink or eat, just as if you were in any other coffee shop. No time will be charged.
