4. Monogatari
5. Non Non Biyori
6. My Little Sister Can't be this Cute
7. Lotte no Omacha!
8. Popotan
9. Ano Hana / The Flower We Saw that Day
10. Moetan

Favorite Mangas:

1. Negima! magister Negi Magi
2. Dance in the Vampire Bund
3. Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? / Is This a Zombie?
4. Welcome to the NHK!

Hi! Oh wow, you managed to do that quite fast for such a big collection! :O Or did you end up selling your collection to a shop or something?

I also sticked to my goals and barely bought new figures. Just a few I really couldn't miss out on from favorite franchises. Especially with current prices, looking at pictures for a lot of them is also enough for me. :) As for selling, it's not going as fast as I want, but that is also because I don't have enough free time to make all the listings, look up market prices, put them up online at a lot of places...etc...

As for how it's going personally...well...quite unexpectedly hectic. Reorganization at the company I work for and am out of nowhere without a job since a few days. :( I'm busy job hunting and got a few good leads, but it's still depressing. :/ I had a lot of fun at my job and had a contract to work there for the rest of the year and a big chunk of 2019 too... :( As for more positive things, I remember us talking about 'waifu tattoos' the last time we spoke. I uh...got a husbando tattoo (I guess) recently? xD Not the literal character, but I redesigned the tattoo my husbando has to something more detailed and have it myself now. :) Really stoked about it!

Hope you have been doing well! :) How has it been going with cleaning the collection and your new lifestyle? :)

lagomorph (8 months ago) #31070407I just don’t want to participate in a culture that is defined by consumption - of television or products...and the degenerate stuff I was drawn to in Anime, while enjoyable, I think made me a worse person, not better. I also found that the friends I was surrounding myself in the otaku world tended to be losers - in terms of relationships and career, or just being people who have skills and value beyond just consumption of merchandise and media.

I get where you're coming from. Not very long ago a friend of mine (with an collection about the same size as mine) quit like that. Bought a stand at a convention and sold her whole collection for dirt cheap and sold almost all of her collection off in that one weekend. She was mainly tired of the sexualized figures, which at first she liked, but just rejected it at one point (probably similar to you also with at first thinking that it's a fun thing to pass time and doesn't hurt anyone). Although I think it's a very good choice of her...I don't think I could ever do that. I still have a collecting-drive. When I also downsized a few years ago and did not buy much, I started spending my money on mainly clothes and collecting certain lines, brands etc. Still a more useable collection than this of course, but yeah I just have collecting in me. ^^''

What you're saying there is harsh, but true for a big group in the (specifically) anime convention community. Lots of people being NEETs or having a low motivation to do things in life. I can't imagine being like that myself. Anyhow, considering you are on another path, do you already have a new passion to surround yourself with? I got a lot more into fitness in the last few years and the people you meet through that (or other sports) are a lot more sociable types. I also save more money for travelling, which are life experiences you can't get by buying some collectibles. Anyway, I hope you find (or already have found) something good and if not, good luck in your search! :)

Maakie (8 months ago) #31043602Oh no! Good luck with finding a new home for all those cuties! Your prices seem very fair, so I'm sure it will work out!
I had a bit of a 'collecting crisis' just over a year ago, I decided to sell a huge amount of my collection (still working on it) and keep collecting to only a few specific franchises and characters. Combination of a lot of factors, of which the current crazy market prices are also one of them, takes away a lot of the fun of this hobby. In a few years, I hope to have a more niche and smaller collection that brings me more joy. :) I'm also more into doujinshi, artbooks, apparel, small goods etc. instead of figures now. People change, including the things you like to do and collect. But it's still something nice to look back on. I have no regrets about buying huge bunches of figures by the way, had a lot of joy back then. :)
Lol, maybe you could get a waifu reference tattoo one day, as a reminder of this period of your life. :)
