January 15 back in 1999 FUNimation bought the domain
ZStore.com and according to the site it's about to open
soon this year. The word is that this new store is going
to be a one stop shopping experience for all Anime items,
including ones not licensed by FUNImation. Here is quick
bit of info straight from ZStore.com.
Z Store will
be here soon. This will be the place for one stop Anime
shopping. You will also be able to buy all the latest
and greatest CD's, videos, books, mags, apparel and
much more at the BEST Prices. We should be up and running
soon in the year 2001.
far this website isn't really too excited about FUNi's
"new" project started more then two years
ago. Their current online store is nothing to boast
about. High prices and a poor affiliate program led
many websites including the DBZN to support others like
Amazon. But thats not the main reason for I am writing
Today I noticed
an odd trend among some highly acclaimed anime news
sites. As soon as the owner of Planet Namek, normally
a great source of information, posted news about the
store, some of the biggest names in this followed up
with the same article. It was all great until I read
them and found so many mistakes... I have found so many
sites calling this project "recent" when it
was started more then two years ago.
I know this
is very common with traditional media but this is the
first time I've observed the NY Times of our industry
make such a mistake.
