You’re visiting Japan and planning to clear out an Animate store — except your wallet is empty. Not to worry, because Animate and 7-Eleven have your back!

The bishie ATMs can only be found at the Ikebukuro and Shinjuku Animate Stores — for now at least. Now, excuse me while I gleefully empty my bank account.
