A sense of reliefA sense of relief

heroizumiheroizumi1 year agoDiary
Hello all, I will have a loot post incoming, but for now I feel the need for the breath of relief.

This anime season has kicked me swiftly in the behind. I've had so many orders going beyond what I had originally wanted to spend per month and I've participated and/or hosted far too many box splits. I'm a self-professed goodsaholic. I love rubber straps, acrylic keychains and other smaller merch, such as clips, hand towels and stands.

Sure, I love some scales and some prize figures, but this season has been particularly rough on me with my keychains and straps. Yuri!!! on Ice is the main concern. I can't believe how much I've been throwing at that show. I can't even imagine what I'll do if they release all three of the main characters as scales at the same time.

But then I took a gander at the next season of anime and to my surprise, there is hardly anything that appeals to me. Sure, I'm sad I won't have as much anime to look forward to, but at the same time I can save some more money for other things I might look into getting.

I started this current season with trying out maybe 23-24 shows. I've managed to whittle it down to 15 shows. I've been buying merch from a number of them, but I have only gone hardcore with Yuri!!! On Ice.....but it's just so much. Especially with the amount of merch coming out. It's absolutely ridiculous.

Next season though? There are only 11 I'm thinking of checking out so far.

I gotta say the most exciting one for me is the second season of Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. The first season was definitely one of the most wonderful series of 2016, so I hope the second season will be one of the best of 2017.

I also can't contain my excitement for more Gintama coming my way. I haven't been a fan since the very beginning, but I started watching during the original series and couldn't get enough of it. I hope there will be some more epic merch of it too!! :DD

But with only a few shows that show a lot of merch prospect to me, I feel so relieved. Or at least my wallet does. I've been hurting a bit these past few months. I'm not saying I'm out of money or anything, but I just feel like I'd been spending a tad too much on merch.

In upcoming months my next really big order is March with the two MS Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans figures, an Android 18 candy figure and all three of the Yuri On Ice Nitotans. Otherwise all other months are fairly okay XDD

Anyway, how about you guys? What are you looking forward to next season? Anyone else think it's a bit less interesting this season?

Let me know in the comments!

I hope you all are having a lovely day and thank you for reading!!

heroizumi (1 year ago) #16555987You're a turd-sandwich. Look what you did to my bank account. I hold you responsible. XDDDD
But yeah, that Asahi nitotan is prob the most exciting thing I'm waiting for. XDDD

It's for the greater good!

tanzanite (1 year ago) #16555850Sorry not sorry I got you to join MFC.
Thankfully there's not many anime for next season that I'll be invested in (at least I hope so!). Marginal#4, Ao no Exorcist, Little Witch Academia, Yowapeda, Piace: Watashi no Italian... I think those are it. So the winter 2017 anime season will mostly be catch-up and trying out those animes that have been on the back burner for a while.
Definitely gonna try and chill the on merch spending with you too T__T Though no regrets on those nitotans though. Best investment of my life so far for merch is my Daichi nitoan. :)

pixilatedpocky (1 year ago) #16550769Ah men, I had to physically hold myself back on all the Haikyuu stuff! And luckily I'm only a casual fan for Days and All Out so I'm not as adament about getting merch for those series. I would cry if my wallet had to take another beating.
And yeah, my account is still pretty new despite being a lurker for a while now. Haha I don't mind the wait though!
I've seen the box splits on tumblr, but I'm one of those that always wants Victor and Yuuri so it's almost impossible to find an open one with them. That's kinda the reason why I don't mind hosting my own even if it means I'll have extra side characters. :3


Ahh yeah, I understand that. I'm a Yurio/Otabek/Minami/Chris fan so I'm fairly lucky. I did go wild and bought all three of the main boys nitotans on amiami though. My poor poor wallet...

Also I looked at your collection. <3 Glad to meet a fellow Hinata fan! He's my second fav under Asahi, but there isn't nearly as much Asahi merch so I might actually have more Hinata XDDD

heroizumi (1 year ago) #16550509I'm hoping and praying that next anime season won't bring this much merch to me. Between Yuri On Ice, Haikyuu, All Out and DAYS I'm rather tapped out financially. I'm so sad that the Kimishita figure from DAYS is so expensive. I really hope it'll go to the bargain bin so I'll be able to afford it. I just happened to come the same month as 2 other scales I really want. ~_~
And please don't remind me of those pillows. ;__; Augh I want them so much. ;__;
Anyway, I hope you can join the splits group fairly soon. I saw your profile and you do still have a bit to go. I remember those days of waiting to join it.
There are some people who do splits on tumblr though, so that's always an option until you can join on the MFC group :DDDD

pixilatedpocky (1 year ago) #16550425Ah yes, the dreaded Yuri On Ice frency bonanza. Trust me I know, I've already preordered a majority of the items from AmiAmi and I have a box set I preordered on HLJ. I wish I had joined mfc months ago, cause I would love to join the Box Split club here but they have a 3 month active account requirement. ;___;
I'm hosting a few box splits/proxy group orders myself with a few friends, but I'll have a few leftover from the unclaimed ones that I have no idea what to do with. At this point I'm just waiting for the scales and nenderoids preorders to be announced and I should be set.
Also those giant marshmallow plushes are gonna be the death of my wallet when my proxy sends me the int shipping charge. ROFL _(:3」∠)_

Luckily there isn't much of a line up next season, so I think my wallet can rest after all the YoI hype dyes down.

nagi2525nagisa (1 year ago) #16519776I am literally pouring Money on Ice. I was wondering if they were gonna chill back on the release of merch for this anime because new merch just comes out for preorder every three days and my wallet just can't keep up, but NOOO. It's gonna be worse once I'm in Japan starting from December 28 for a whole year (aaaand...just in time for Comiket and all those newly released doujins of Yuri!!! on Ice, of course...(there goes my money)). But yeah...I'm managing somehow to collect the most of merch from my abused wallet. I'm not starving or dying, no worries, but I definitely need to keep my sanity in check. bagwgahahah

Same. I'm in far too many splits for YoI it's ridiculous. I'm so far only hosting 2 of them, but it's been far too intense.

Have fun in Japan!! I miss it so much. ;__; I had been there from September 2011 until April 2015 and was more interested in J-drama and Kamen Rider at the time. Now I've gone back to loving anime and not caring as much for J-drama and Kamen Rider so merch is kind of killing me, haha.

ZoidsFanatic (1 year ago) #16514040I've been light with the anime. And by that I mean I've only watched Brave Witches and nothing else. Next season I might give Fate a try, but pretty much not expecting much until the third season of CG. What can I say? I'm picky. But this is the time I've actually gone and pre-ordered a bunch of merch for BW. So far I've got Nikka and Aleksandra key chains, dog tags, a deck box for my MTG cards, and card sleeves for MTG cards (I regret to this day never buying the Van ones)! I did want to get the shirts but they were kinda expensive.
But yeah, I suppose this season was a first for me in that I ordered non-figure merch. But beyond that can't say much about this season, although this is not me being the cynic that I am, I typically only watch between 1-10 new anime in a year.


I wish I was more picky with my anime. I've watched some pretty terrible stuff, haha. I'm still fairly new to collecting figures. I just had a few prize ones, trading ones and those chibi-arts figures from Tiger & Bunny up until June when I got my first nendoroid and SAS. Then first scales in September and October with Mikazuki and Orga from Iron Blooded Orphans on pre-order in march.

I always tend to watch a lot and subsequently want merch from most everything I watch. D:
