About

I've been collecting anime figures for about seven years and have been watching anime for a decade. I go to about 3 anime conventions a year but I haven't watched many anime post 2015. My top six anime are: Tokyo Ghoul, Psychopass, Darker than Black, No Game No life, Anohana and Yuri on Ice.
My current collection on MFC is a love letter to my top 30 anime of all time. A permanent shrine, if you will. I meticulously have chosen each and every one to stay in my possession for the next decade. I am retiring my collecting satisfied in my decisions.

I'm a closet weeb and so know it

Would you guess that I had a bigger collection once? I've sold off quite a few things to focus on the characters that really mean something to me. I also collected limited edition D23 and 16 inch Disney doll's. I have since retired.

I finally own a dakimakura inner pillow! Yay!

Effective immediately, my last order was placed today and my wish/ordered list is officially locked. I will now block amiami and other merch websites until further notice.

This sign is a reminder for myself. Please do not take it as a personal attack.

A one time exception was made for ITEM #1226070. It's my personal graduation present.

Aquired two grails, one of which I spent the last 6 years searching for:
The Ken Kaneki Stone Bracelet

I'm so happy. I want to cry. Why was this so incredibly difficult to find(6 years of searching)? I used to own it but my mother threw it away. I'm super happy I can wear it again!

Dolks Ken Kaneki BJD Character line
(Expensive and hard to find, double wham)

It only cost me an arm and a leg!

Thanks for the friend request! I wish you luck in your attempts to quit collecting especially after learning you've had a shopping addiction in the past. Hopefully sticking around MFC won't be too tempting, but if you disable all figure alerts/notifications it should be pretty manageable. I do understand wanting to stick around for the community side of MFC. It's honestly why I log in here most days.

SiFz2 months ago#100375992Hey (*≧ω≦*)
I know that I'm still young (18 years old) and new to collecting, but reading that someone that used to love this hobby quite after so many years of collecting just hurted. Thats because the only thing that brings me the most joy in life at the moment is my collection. Every time I feel sad or depressed I just look at my collection and smile.


I can relate! When I first started collecting anime was the only thing that brought me joy. And don't feel pressure or fear to quit. Keep in mind I'm documenting my personal journey into quitting collecting.

I just feel like as I've grown older I've grown more aware of my bad habits. I think for a while I was just buying things for the sake of spending money. That's not meaningful collecting--that's just a shopping addiction.

I haven't grown out of anime, I just am focused on mutiple pursuits. Don't feel any pressure to "grow up".

Hey (*≧ω≦*)
I saw your friend request and was quite suprised, because I have been on this site for a while and never got one before.. I remembered that I posted a comment on an article of yours, but never checked out your profile untile now. I have to say now that I have read your about me 'page' I got a bit depressed... I know that I'm still young (18 years old) and new to collecting, but reading that someone that used to love this hobby quite after so many years of collecting just hurted. Don't get me wrong you probably have good reasons to quite, but the feeling that I will definitely end up the same scares me. Thats because the only thing that brings me the most joy in life at the moment is my collection. Every time I feel sad or depressed I just look at my collection and smile.

kuroshure2 months ago#100375857I'm sure I would be in the exact same position as you if I had the money to splurge on figures back when I just started collecting lol. I'm glad I was a poor student. I make much more rational decisions now that I'm older.
So, are you going to completely quit this hobby or are you just slowing down on collecting? I think I'll keep checking this website time to time even if I quit.


I was a poor student...I was just insane lol. I always found a way to buy the things I wanted (at the cost of many things).

Yes, I'm going to completely quit this hobby (and multiple other similar hobbies) at once. I won't be buying anymore. I can still appreciate an anime without buying anything. I just rather focus the money on paying down existing debt, gym, university, sports and other meaningful pursuits. Anime will still be a part of my life, just not as prominently.

Kendya2 months ago#100336741It's going good. I'm currently resisting ordering more trading figures (awww, the drawbacks of shopping addiction, am I rite?) I kid. I know I'm done with ordering.
How's it going for you? I thought your responses were very meaningful do I sent you a friend request! I hope you don't mind (◕દ◕)
Sure, I don't mind! Yeah, I thought your posts were meaningful as well. They just resonated with me. I'm sure I would be in the exact same position as you if I had the money to splurge on figures back when I just started collecting lol. I'm glad I was a poor student. I make much more rational decisions now that I'm older.

So, are you going to completely quit this hobby or are you just slowing down on collecting? I think I'll keep checking this website time to time even if I quit.

Hi! You're quitting right? I wish you a good luck to your next journey of other things! If you ever feel missed it you can come back but I don't guarantee you to do that XD.
