8) Funko Pop! Moment: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Mustang vs. Lust

Mustang vs. Lust Funko Pop Moment.

This item may be a bit of a throwback, being from an anime that started in 2009, but there’s nothing better than a good Funko Pop! Moment, especially one that commemorates such an iconic moment. Mustang taking out Lust in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is still talked about to this day, and adding this Funko to your shelf will make sure you stay part of the conversation.

If you want to dive into the manga series that inspired the show, Crunchyroll has an exclusive version of Volume 1 that will be an awesome addition to any manga collection. 

6) 5 Pack Demon Slayer Figures

With the show returning for its fourth season in 2024, this pack of Demon Slayer figures is clearly one of the best pieces of anime merch on the market. And once you add Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, Giyu, and Shinobu to your collection, you’ll never never have to worry about a Demon showing up in your room and wreaking havoc.

5) Goku Vs Vegeta Dragon Ball Z Starry Night Essential T-Shirt

Dragon Ball Z Starry Night T-shirt.

Vincent van Gogh and Akira Toriyama probably isn’t a combination you think about, but once you lay eyes on this T-shirt, you won’t ever forget it. This item places two of the most iconic anime characters ever, Goku and Vegeta, in the middle of one of the most iconic paintings ever. Enough said.

Jujutsu Kaisen is another series that only recently wrapped its latest season, and it was a memorable one. And one of the best ways to look back on Season 2 is to grab this Gojo statue, which features him during his most epic moment. With this in your collection, Gojo won’t be the only Honored One anymore.

3) Attack on Titan – Colossal Titan Vinyl Figure
