People tend to call me Awa-chan (or just Awa) on the internet thanks to an old Tumblr username, so feel free to call me that! I understand that my username can be hard to spell/pronounce, so feel free to call me by a nickname :)
I've been interested in figures for quite a while, but only more recently have I started collecting.
As with many people in this hobby, I'm broke, extremely limited on space, and can never make up my mind, so I don't have much as of yet, but I hope in the future to have an appealing collection that inspires me :)
Currently, even though I find scaled figures beautiful, I only seem to buy smaller things like nendos and Banpresto's Chibi-Kyun Charas (boy am I obsessed with those haha!) And not because of money, it's just...what I tend to subconsciously lean towards I suppose?
Other than taking on this expensive hobby of figure collecting, I am also already involved in another expensive hobby: cosplay. I also attend anime and comic conventions when I can, but I most frequently attend Otakuthon in Montreal (been attending for over five years now!)
You can find me on MyAnimeList
A little bit more about my world of anime/manga:
My first true "introduction" into anime/manga was when I discovered and read the Imadoki! manga series in the local public library as a young teen. From there I fell in love with Naruto and Vampire Knight and followed both all the way until the end. In high school my friends introduced me to many other series, then it just grew from there. I grew up on Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, and Digimon and collected the cards and merch for all three.
Other than that, I am very unpredictable with my manga/anime preferences. However, the darker series such as Ajin, Death Note, Pandora Hearts, etc. never fail to interest me. You can see my lists of favourite anime/manga on my MyAnimeList account.
