    ^^ These are great suggestions + rip/upload AMV videos on YT or just play the comments on current popular ones.
    ie. "OMG THIS DBZ AMV IS SO COOL! My new Goku handpainted figurine just came in from blahblah.com and looks exactly as awesome as he does at 0:52! DBZ4LYFE"

    Honestly this is a niche I imagine forums would be pretty awesome, I remember trolling a few of these boards myself as a kid. Your target audience is probably ~12-26 y.o. primarily males and a few introverted females so just bear that in mind. Even go after the echhi/hentai fans or whatever, they're not off limits.

    million ways to skin a cat, just start with a few that are most relevant to what you're looking to sell.

    anime streaming sites and forums would probably be your best bet
    build up a decent rep on forums, put link to site in sig, post often, profit

    Use 4 chan.
    You can buy adspace for really low rates.
    This would be the best place to get traffic for you.

    Hello,

    some ideas:
    - make Tumblr/Twitter/Pinterest account and send images with: cosplayers (girls), nice figurine, ... you can find viral content (mainly with cosplayers)
    - try Jpop or idols niche with Youtube
