About

My path towards collecting figures: I've always been into videogames, and with the Dreamcast, and in particular, Shenmue, this led me to become interested in Japan. Along the way somewhere I also got really into Studio Ghibli, mainly through friends also into them. Then, in May 2010, I finally went to Japan. I'd gotten the chance through work and jumped at the chance to go - mainly to Akihabara to search for retro games and also my recent (er, past five plus years) passion for shmups. Whilst there I was astounded by the figures I saw. I didn't buy any as I was travelling with just a backpack round Japan for three more weeks but did buy some gashapon (to feed my Shenmue needs since I didn't go to Yokosuka). When I got back I looked up the anime from which my favourite figures I'd seen came from. Then got hooked on anime series (starting with K-ON, which fitted with my other main interest - music). And promptly started ordering figures, starting with Alter's Hirasawa Yui and then progressing, with my spending limit getting higher and higher...

JulThanks for the FR. Nice to see another British collector! Nice set of Nendos you got there.
Thank you very much, you have a lovely collection. I'm especially jealous of your BRS figures and your Mugi Ending Vr, I've been looking for that one for ages. Nice to see a British collector too!
