I wish there was a map to point out the different shops on each road. I did find several gem stores selling old games, anime, figurines and second hand figurine stores. Nice place to be if you are a geek like me.

While walking around Osaka we came upon Denden Town area. We enjoyed the anime stores, arcade centres and electronic stores. We had a great time wandering from store to store looking at everything. Make sure you visit this area as it is just fun.

I'm not sure as I haven't seen one in Denden Town. I only saw English and other translations of manga at the shop of International Manga Museum in Kyoto.
