Unlike Mumbaikers, Delhites have a little less when it comes to anime and manga.
As a fellow otaku, I tried to find some of the hidden gems in New Delhi for my readers. After extensive research, I curated this list of 5 Japanese Manga Stores in New Delhi that you should visit right now.
NOTE: The availability of mangas totally depends upon your luck. Nowadays, people purchase manga more often than before. Make sure to confirm before coming to the stores.
Otakusmart brings you 5 Japanese Manga stores in New Delhi that every otaku needs to visit.
Midland book shop
Located in the Hauz Khas area in South Delhi, Midland Book Shop is the ultimate destination for all your manga craving.
The staff is extremely helpful and you can find all the Popular Mangas in the book store. The best part is the long history of the store that dates back to 1978.
Midland book shop was founded by Mirza Yaseen Baig in 1978 and it is considered as one of the oldest book shops in New Delhi.
ADDRESS: Shop No.20, Aurobindo Palace Market, near Church, Hauz Khas, New Delhi, Delhi 110016
Situated in the Posh area of Saket of South Delhi, The Bahrisons Booksellers is a world of its own. While you can find limited Manga and Light novels in the store, the environment is extremely peaceful and the hospitality of the store employees will make you feel at home.
You can find manga’s, Light novels and more than you can bargain for.
Although I have never visited the place myself I can say all the otakus must visit the place once to experience the store firsthand.

Om Book Shop
Om Book Shop is located near Delhi – Jaipur Express Highway in Ambience Island. Although the place is far for South Delhiites, you can visit the store franchise in Saket as well.
The ambiance is cool and the staff is friendly to the readers. You can order a coffee and read your favorite books inside the store and nobody will bother you.
Heaven for book readers I guess!
ADDRESS : Delhi – Jaipur Expy, Ambience Island, DLF Phase 3, Sector 24, Gurugram, Delhi 122010
NOTE: I am not sure if they still had mangas in the book store. I would suggest confirm the availability of mangas before coming.
Every otaku would agree that good food and manga go hand-in-hand. well if you are into good food and good manga then Mangaful Cafe is your ultimate destination.
Located in the MG Road, Mangaful Cafe is one hidden cafe that offers mouth-watering Japanese food and a collection of mangas to read.
Now if that doesn’t move your heart, I don’t what else will!
ADDRESS : Khasra 350, M G Road, Sultanpur Village, New Delhi, Delhi 110030
The Japan Foundation
Located in the Lajpat Nagar area of South Delhi, The Japan Foundation is the biggest manga store in New Delhi.
Every week The Japan Foundation adds new Mangas to their library and it is the best manga store for all the otakus.
What makes The Japan foundation special is the whole idea of the building. I personally visited the place and there are Japanese language classes that the reader can opt for. I personally suggest you visit the place first if you love Japanese culture and arts.
ADDRESS : 5-A, Ring Road, Lajpat Nagar-IV, New Delhi 110 024
