The owner, Cosmo Candelaria, got the idea to open the store six months ago, after realizing the city didn’t really have any anime-centric stores. He says the entire opening process was made possible thanks to help from his family and friends.

“It was something that I’ve always kind of grown-up watching. It’s been a big part of my life and has always brought me joy, and there was never a place like this in Albuquerque. I wanted to bring that to the kids that are coming up now in this environment,” said Candelaria.

Five Star Anime is open Tuesday through Sunday and closed Mondays.
