Since I have recently moved my collection to a place that I can show it off easier, when is a better opportunity to show it to you all then now? Anytime probably, but whatever. I recently acquired Kino’s Journey and I don’t plan on buying anything until the holiday season when huge anime sales make an appearance. It’s going to be stagnant for a while with the exception of Escaflowne: The Movie, because I backed that Kickstarter. With little further to do, here are some pictures.
-First series added to this collection: Gundam Wing (My brother bought them for me for my birthday a long time ago)
-First Series that I bought myself: Strain and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Season 1. I bought them at the same time from Best Buy.
-Favorites: My Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex sets, Turn A Gundam sets, and Kino’s Journey.
–Series that I regret buying: Line barrels of Iron. It’s a mech series that has no redeeming factors to it.
–Latest two series that I bought: Fist of the North Star and Kino’s Journey
Just to tell you guys, I’m a huge cheap skate. I’ve been slowly collecting anime over six years now and I only move on buying something when it’s at a price that I feel looks good. I constantly keep an eye out for deals on Amazon and Right stuff. That is why I don’t own many blu-rays or own anything from Aniplex and some of Funimation’s latest sets like Psycho Pass. Also, I’m not sure if I want to replace things like Ergo Proxy and Code Geass with any of Funimation’s new releases. When it comes to spending, I never splurge. It’s just how I was raised.
You may notice that there is a bootleg dvd, Fullmetal Panic: Fumoffu, in my collection. (If you want to know how you can tell, I can possibly make a post on that later). Yeah, that is there for sentimental reasons. This is something my brother owned before he passed away three years ago. When I left home, that is one of the things that I brough with me to remember him. I don’t plan on getting rid of it anytime soon.
So yeah, this is my small collection that is growing by smaller amounts all the time. I think it’s very reflective of who I am. There are some older series, a lot of Gundam/mech anime, some more obscure, some very popular movies and shows and somethings that recently came out. If anything, I would like to see a glimpse of what other people currently own. I’m not going to start something where people tag other people to see their collections, but if you are interested please do.
