New Graphic Novels Now 15% Off Cover Price! [06 Jul 2010|04:39pm]

beelzebozo
[ mood | busy ]

I hinted to this on our Twitter feed and now it's done! All of the new graphic novels and print novels on the web store are now 15% off the cover price! Now that we no longer have to worry about paying for retail space, we can adjust our prices to be a little more competitive with other on-line anime web stores. Originally, all of our new books on our web store were roughly around 10% off cover price. With the change in business model, we can now offer a hard 15%. All the better for you!

Now, this does not include used books, nor Japanese language manga, nor comic magazines like Shonen Jump. This price will not be valid for purchases made at our dealer's booths at conventions, that has it's own discount. This is for web store purchases only. So start shopping now! And remember, free shipping for orders over $100!

Used DVDs under $5 each! [24 Jun 2010|02:47pm]

beelzebozo
[ mood | happy ]

We finally got around to doing something we had been planning on, but were going to wait until we moved. We have reduced the prices on our Used DVDs AGAIN! Now most of our used DVDs are $4.95, UNDER $5 each!

This, of course, excludes the consignment DVDs, where the people we are selling them for set their price, but even them, most of those are $10 or less. So pick up a bargain, replace that scratched disc or complete that collection today!

Moving Time [30 Apr 2010|10:29am]

[ mood | busy ]

Sorry about this, but we've been so wrapped up in moving that we've been neglecting to get the word out, outside of a quick Twitter post. So here it is.

The lease is up and it's time to go. And since we are no longer going to be a retail shop, the new place is an office/warehouse. The hours will still be 10am-5pm Monday through Friday. But as many of you have seen, we will be frequently closed for conventions. Still, we will be open to those wishing to pick up hold-box items, special orders, or webstore orders or to drop off consignments. The phone number will remain the same.

Gimme Anime goes Internet & Conventions Only [04 Jan 2010|10:02am]

beelzebozo
[ mood | busy ]

After 8 years of serving the Denver Metro area, Gimme Anime will be closing its doors as a retail shop for the last time on Saturday, January 30th, 2010. After that, its location will be the office of Gimme Anime.com, which the focus of Gimme Anime will be on its webstore and conventions locally and across the country. This office will only be open until 5pm Monday through Friday, closed on the weekends, and subject to closure due to conventions and other related events. By the end of April, Gimme Anime will be moved to a new location to be determined. Watch the website at www.gimmeanime.com for details.

As noted, we are not going out of business, but simply changing how we do business. There will be no going-out-of-business sale. We will still have a business location in the Denver Metro area. We will still be seen at Animeland Wasabi , Starfest , the Colorado Cherry Blossom Festival , and Nan Desu Kan , plus other events locally. There will be, of course, changes in how we do things. So if you have hold boxes, consignments, special orders, or other questions, see below:

Hold Boxes

Current Customers: For those of you currently with hold boxes, we will be happy to continue the service for you. We will offer you free shipping to thank you for your business with us, though you will have the option of arranging to pick up your items at our office if you choose We would ask to put a credit card on file with us so we don't need to worry about transmitting it each time you wish to get the items in your box shipped to you.

New Customers: If you wish to start a hold box with us, either set up an account with us during business hours or e-mail us to find out how to set up an account remotely. You will have the option of picking up your items or having them shipped to you.

Consignments

We will still be taking and selling consignments. The terms will remain the same. Please be sure that we have up-to-date contact information so that we can get hold of you. For a limited time, we will be suspending consignment payments and we will resume them in March, which is why we want to make sure we have current contact information.

Because we are not going to be a retail shop anymore, we will no longer be accepting some items and will return those particular items we currently have. They are:

  • VHS tapes
  • Collectible Card Games (Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, etc)
  • Fan Art

You are free to pick these items up at any time or make arrangements with us to get them to you.

Special Orders

For those of you who put down money for special orders, we will still honor your orders and will fill  them as soon as humanly possible. If feel the need to cancel your order, we will not be able to refund the money down until March.

Gift Cards

We will continue to honor our gift cards, but will not sell anymore of the physical ones. If you want to, we can convert physical gift cards into webstore gift certificates.

It's an UPDATE!! [09 Jun 2009|04:54pm]

beelzebozo
[ mood | busy ]

You are seeing correctly, we have updated the webstore. More items will be appearing as we get completely caught up after the busy spring that we had. We have also changes some items as we've been doing a much-needed inventory here at the shop.

A quick notice that, as you can see in the Con Tour box on the shop's website, we will be attending the Colorado Cherry Blossom Festival this month. Because of this, we will be closed that Saturday and Sunday. Also, Denver Anime International will not be holding their regular meeting at our store because it's staff will be attending the festival as well. The next DAI meeting will be the 3rd Saturday in July.

Web Store Revision is Live!


It's been a long wait, but our webstore update is now LIVE! Still the same look and feel, but with massive new features and enhancements.

1) Gift Registry: Create your own wish list from our store products. You can then e-mail a link to family and friends, or just keep it around as a shopping list. Create different lists for different occasions!

2) Tell A Friend: Find that ONE item you or someone you know is looking for. Just a quick click and you can sent a link of that item to someone else.

3) eGift Certificates: Now you can send your friends and loved ones e-mail gift cards available for our store. No longer do you have to make a special trip to the shop and hope they will be in town to enjoy it.

4) eCoupons: Remember those coupons that we sent out with the newsletters? Now they will have a webstore code on them as well, so that you will be able to take advantage of those special offers on-line as well as in our store.

5) Advanced Search: Easier to find items in our store. By name, price, category and more. Sort by name or by price.

6) Ratings and Reviews: Love that one manga or DVD and wish to let everyone know about it? Now you can write your own reviews and/or rate our products to let everyone know how awesome it is!

7) Affiliate Program: Wanna make a couple bucks off with your Bleach fan site? Wanna show people that great model you raved about on your blog? Join our affiliate program and earn a percentage for every person that comes from your site to our's and makes a purchase. We will pay 7% commission, more than the average Amazon affiliate program.

With the database changeover, we've got a few things in the wrong places and we are looking to add some more features, such as new shipping options, later. But for now, we are up and running. So feel free to take it for a ride and see how it handles.

WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK!

We're currently looking at ways to enhance the news that we bring you. Since you are already our mailing list, we would like to know if you would be interested if we started to send out our newsletters with HTML coding, allowing us to put formating, pictures and embedded links into the email.

Rentals Are Returning! - We apologize for the lack of new rentals recently. The blame can be traced mostly to a broken barcode printer, which made it hard to print the proper labels for our rental cases. The first 4 new rentals, as well as a few replacements, have already gone up.

Naka-Kon was great! And thank you to all the people who were nice to our temporary staff.

NATIONAL NEWS

- Toshiba has all but announced the end of HD-DVD. While they will continue to support the format for a while longer, Toshiba has stopped development of the format and has shut down two plants in Japan producing the DVDs. This comes after Wal-mart announced it's exclusive support for Sony's Blu-Ray format. Blu-Ray is especially of interest for anime fans since, unlike the original DVD format, Blu-Ray's region coding is less strict and includes Japan and the US in the same region.

STORE NEWS:

The weeks don't seem to let up, since our last newsletter, we've had:

* Our webstore went down on Monday afternoon and didn't return to life until Wednesday evening. Needless to say, we were a little upset, but there was good reason for the downtime. The people who host our .com and our webstore experienced a fire in their server room, taking down our, and others', webstore. While backups were available, the fire managed to also damage some backup equipment, so it took longer than they anticipated to get everyone back up and running. Fortunately, our main news area, forums, and photo gallery are hosted at a different service and were unaffected. If you ever have any problems getting to www.gimmeanime.com, try going to www.gimmeanime.net, since that is where the other half of our website is hosted.

* A listing of ALL of our rentals is now available on the website.

Gimme Anime Website Troubles [27 Nov 2007|10:32am]

beelzebozo
Just letting anyone trying to get to our site that the server that holds our webstore was involved in a fire on Monday. The technicians for the people providing the service (same people who do our computer's Point-of-Sale system, FYI) have been working around the clock to get it back up and running and expect the server to be back and running sometime Tuesday afternoon.

If you still want to visit the site, go to http://www.gimmeanime.net . This is where the other elements, like our photo galleries, news posts, and forums are located and they are hosted by a different service, so they are just fine.

Oh, and our e-mail still works as well.

The Gimme Anime Newsletter

STORE NEWS:

We've been busy this last week!

* We have had requests for a catalog of items that people can see what we can order. Unfortunately, most companies don't print out paper catalogs anymore and many will only let retailers look at the web listings. Fortunately, some provide listings for everyone. In some of our catagories, we have added a link to Great Eastern , the main supplier of licensed anime character goods in the US. While our site will only list what we have in stock, you can click the link to Great Eastern's site and see what is available and coming soon, and then place a special order with us.


* For Manga reviews, check out our sister site: www.reviewing-manga.com . And as an added feature, we've placed links back to those reviews in our product listings, so you can read more about specific series. As more items are reviewed, we will add links in those series.

* We have managed to get most of our rentals in a very simple database listed on the website. There are still a couple of items that need to be corrected, but it is a very comprehensive list of what is available in our store for rentals. The only ones not listed is our adult rentals.


* We will be attending our second out-of-town convention and our first out-of-state convention, Anime Nebraskon , November 16-18th, 2007 in Lincoln, Nebraska, on the University of Nebraska Lincoln campus. But don't worry, unlike NDK , our shop will be open that weekend (though we might be a little understocked :P )


Coming Soon:

* Adult Rentals Listings
* Special Order, Consignment, and Rental Membership Forms

NDK has put up a registration form to download on it's website until they can get an actual automated webform available.

Just a minor update [09 Oct 2007|05:22pm]

beelzebozo
I'm realizing we aren't using this community as we should...

Just a quick note that we've updated the front end slight. We will have a list of upcoming events, both in and outside of the store, rather than the usual static calendar.

Gimme Anime is Moving! [16 Mar 2007|10:49am]

[ mood | excited ]

The ink is barely dry on the contract and it's still not completely sunk in, but, after 5 years, we will be moving to a new location, and the best part is that we are only going down the street! We will be closing Sunday, April 29th for the move and reopening for business on Monday, April 30th at 2790 S. Havana St, Ste V, Aurora, CO 80014-8601, near Bicycle Village.

What does this mean for you? Well, first of all, we will be not be moving far, essentially only a couple blocks south, so getting to us will not really change much.

Secondly, we are getting a larger community room, all ready for the anime club meetings, art lessons, and whatnot that we have at our store.

Thirdly, we will be next to all sorts of new neighbors, like Legacy Games, 2 different Chinese buffets and various other restaurants, Korean bakeries and more, plus behind us is the Korean-Japanese supermarket, Har-Mart (or H-Mart).

We are also planning on documenting our renovations in our Photo Gallery so you can see our progress, so stay tuned!

Webstore Major Update & Banner Contest [21 Feb 2007|10:41am]

beelzebozo
A while back, we massively reorganized our site's frontend. Well, we have now extended the look to our webstore proper. Now the same great taste is available throughout Gimme Anime. Look for a couple of tweaks here and there as we add the last little bit of trim to the site, but the major work is done.

So now we'd like your help in promoting our website. And we'll pay for it! We need a set of banners to advertise our new spiffy webstore, so we are sponsoring a contest...

Design for us a set of banners that we can use to promote our webstore and, if your set is judged to be the best, we'll reward you with $50 gift card to our shop! Here are the details:

* We need at least three banners (Full Banner, Half Banner, & Vertical Banner). More is nice, but not necessary. Standard dimensions are available here .
* You can place a "Banner Design By *your name,email,or website* in the corner, small but legible.
* We want JPG or GIF files. Animated is nice but not necessary. No FLASH.
* You can use your own artwork, but we will provide some artwork for you to use if you want.
* Our logo must remain the same and if you use our mascot, Fujiko, don't take too many liberties.
* * Either attach your submissions to an e-mail to us at info-at-gimmeanime.com , or provide a link of where to download the files at. Submissions will be placed in our gallery for people to see and comment.
* In addition to the banners themselves, we also request the finished raw file (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) in case, at a later date, some information may need to be changed and we don't want to have to throw your hard work out. We will not change the "Banner Design By...".

All entries must be in by April 1st, 2007 and we will announce the winner later.
