About

I'm not much of a figure collector, but I do appreciate the hobby and ended up on this site enough trying to buy merchandise from Japan that I figured making an account wouldn't hurt.

kin (8 months ago) #19924681Older are cheaper? Oh man, the older ones I always buy tend to be more expensive because they're from popular circles. I was once in a bidding war with a friend for a doujin from 2011 and I let her have it at 7,500YI go after obscure circles and pairings so maybe that's why lol. Although there have been a couple that are so popular and rare that they never go down in price. Kinda given up on them tbh.
Wow that's pricey!

Macavy (8 months ago) #19857376I thought I replied omg.
I tend to get older doujin because it's cheaper. I'm after a current one by Hobby Hobby that's a compilation of all their chubby America stories but am holding out until the price drops a little more to get it. Some new ones look really good, though. I've been liking the ones released by Caramela Blues, which focus more on GerAme.

Macavy (9 months ago) #18378028I have the same problem with Lithuania. He's my third fav, and only because he has so little fanwork it was hard to stay as excited about him.
I'm excited for the Japan nendo, though, even though. He'll fit nicely with the diaorama I plan to make for my current Touken Ranbu Nendos. It seems companies are barely realizing that pretty boys make money, too lol. Thankfully Hetalia has managed to remain relevant or it'd never stand a chance.
I'm struggling to avoid Suru recently with all the Hetalia updates. Now I'm on the hunt for new doujin and my cart has gotten bigger. The struggle is real lol.

Macavy (10 months ago) #18132446I'm glad Hetalia is still somewhat popular. There's still really good doujin coming out for it, and now with the figures it's like it's getting a second chance to be big.
And yeah, squishies are super fun. They're just as deadly to the wallet as figures lol.
Woah that's a lot of doujin, nice. :o That's gonna be a really fun package to open.

Sadly no Belgium-centric books or I'd still collect them too :c there's a Japan figure coming out, I'm surprised it didn't come out like 4 years ago instead of now since Hetalia was at it's peak then but if there's a Japan figure coming it also shows Hetalia is far from over. Yeah, I was done ordering stuff but then I checked suruga-ya and well, it's super cheap there so I had to buy more.

Macavy (10 months ago) #18055355I wish there was a way to keep track of doujinshi as well, but I can see it being hard to catalog all that's out there. Not even doujinshi.com has all of them.
I mainly collect Hetalia America-centric ones, with an emphasis on Russia/America pairing ones (I've noticed they tend to have really good art lol). For that I really like Hobby Hobby and Mocha+CCC (the former for the art+story and the latter for art)
Also have some for DMMD and a few from a video game series I don't play (Skies of Arcadia I think?) but liked the art of. Nowadays I tend to read them online and buy the ones whose art/plot I really enjoyed, regardless of the series.
I don't advertise my youtube channel here because it's not really figure-centric - right now it's more squishy-centric lol. But I recently have started to post reviews of figures I get so when the stuff I've pre-ordered arrives it's gonna go up there. www.youtube.com... Most of the doujinshi I buy is R18 tho, and that's definitely not something I'll be making a video about haha.
Do you have a focus for your doujinshi collection?

Oh yeah, back when I was still in Hetalia the Russia/America ship got all the great artists! It's been so long since I collected Hetalia doujinshis (ok I'll be real I did buy two a couple of months ago) but it's still going! Which is quite amazing for a series so long, even Naruto didn't have such a strong fanbase to continue to create doujinshis. Even now the majority of my collection is Hetalia doujinshis.

I feel you on that, I too sometimes buy doujinshis of games I don't play but the art looks so good :')

I didn't know squishy collecting was a thing! They're so cute, I checked some of your videos out and you have so much! Also jealous of your candy nnn they look so good!

My main focus in collecting doujinshis right now is Haikyuu, Fate, and Yuri on Ice but if I get into a new fandom or see art of an artist I love I'll focus on that. Haven't really had the chance to buy as much doujinshis of any other fandom as my Hetalia one as I just keep changing. I just ordered 38 doujinshis from those 3 fandoms and the wait is always killing.

Macavy (10 months ago) #17987629I've been collecting for about a year. Do you mean like a list? I update my figure/merchandise collection on here. Doujinshi is too time consuming to keep track of anywhere but with my book shelves. Also do some unboxings on Youtube.
It's fine! I never talk to people about my collection since they're not that interested so it's nice so chat about it.

Yeah, a list of doujinshis! I agree on it being time consuming, but I still kinda wish there was a place like mfc but for doujinshis so people who collect could come together like this. You have a youtube channel? Do you have a link, it doesn't seem to be linked on your profile. What are you currently collecting with doujinshis? Ship/artist/fandom? :)
