Well, besides the anime/manga themselves, what other anime merch. do you collect? I'm fond of artbooks and CD soundtracks, also limited edition anything... I'm just curious what other fans buy.

Anime and manga aside, I collect just about anything from my favorites series. [ie if its Gravitation, its MINE!]

I have a large stock of posters, wallscrolls, pins, dolls, keyhcains, Pokémon plushies, figures, artbooks, and pencil boards. Gawd, I ahve so much anime junk. XD I love it all!

Hmm. I have a Sailor Mercury plushie, Sailor Moon cards, two Sailor Moon wallscrolls, five SM keychains, lots of the SM manga, I got SMILE issues, Planet Ladder 1-2, Utena Manga 1-2, a Shonen Jump preview, Gundam Wing and Hellsing holographic posters, and various Pokemon cards & toys. I also have old tapes of Sailor Moon episodes. ^^

I collect Sailor Moon stuffs. Posters, postcards, greeting cards, party favors, dolls, plushies, artbooks, CDs, toys...you name it. It's to the point where I'm almost embarrassed that I have so much stuff. (Not because it's Sailor Moon, just because there's so much of it.)

And I have a few figures, so I guess you can say I'm starting a collection there. Not the expensive $200 things, but like the $10-$20 figures. Rally Vincent, Minnie May, Belldandy, Ryoko...a few Evas...

If it's anime, and I have the money on hand, it's mine! I collect everything anime that I can find, but I'm especially fond of UFO catchers and dolls. *such a girly girl* xD

[ but I'm especially fond of UFO catchers and dolls. *such a girly girl* xD ]

You think that's bad, I got a whole mountain of Beanie Babies XD!!!!!!! /offtopicness

I wouldn't mind getting some CDs, especially the Sailor Moon Memorial Collection. ^_^

As far as anime goes, very little. I have a few artbooks. And some Digimon & Pokemon plushies and figures (Team Rocket! Yay! ^_^). A handful of pretty Gundam Wing doujinshi. That's it.

Now, when it comes to *video games* .... XD

If I really like a certain manga/anime, I will buy any type of merchandise there is... Within financial reason ^^;

Then I guess we'll competing :p (j/k of course.)

Same here. I collect mainly Soundtracks. Although I make it a policy to not get anything unless I've seen the anime first. That and Manga. I use to collect HG Bandai Models too, but I finished my EVA collection. (all except the Perfect grade and the ones from the movies. Ugh, I hate those things.) Everyonce in a while I'll do a model/figurines, but unless it's something I really like (i.e. AMG stuff), I usually don't bother with it.

I'm a freak. I have a nice little collection of Here Is Greenwood doujinshi. Other than that I also go for rurouni kenshin and final fantasy VII doujin and I'm on a new mission to get ahold of Gravitation CDs. Artbooks are always a nice little addition to any collection ^__^

i have a bit of an obsession with Wall Scrolls. *cough ran out of room on my walls cough*
and minor obsessions with lami cards and pencil boards. ^^;

Shadow Lady
10-21-2002, 09:22 PM
Besides the few anime I own and the twenty or so manga I have a few stuffed toys, cds, poster, action figures, and capsule figures.
Right now I'm into collecting those little figures with the candy. I get some every time I can go to Uwajimaya.

KuroBara
10-21-2002, 09:23 PM
Oh my...I have too many wall scrolls. Let's see...I keep my Yu-gi-oh deck in a mini Trigun lunchbox, my bulletin board uses chibi character pins instead of thumbtacks, I have a Kodama plushie, tons of those little laminated posters, a shiny Utena poster that I love, figures (Anthy, Wolfwood, Belldandy), the Angel sanctuary angel box with prints, postcards, clock, necklace, hmm...

So basically anything from a series I like!

I am such a sucker for those little anime/video game characters that come in those little machines where you have to put in 100 yen (I don't see them as much in the US) and you turn the crank and out pops the cute little toy you get to put together. It's so irrational of me to love them since I have almost no space in my room but I just can't help myself. They are everywhere.

10-21-2002, 11:32 PM
Well, I have a bunch of anime related items, may it be shirts, figures, DVDs, file folders, cels, plushies, pins...etc. etc. I don't have -too- much, but out of all the items I have more figures than anything else...I need to mount a second shelf to my wall so I can display some more ;_;

Oh God...here we go:

I collect figures, artbooks, DVDs, soundtracks, shirts, pins, manga, posters, wallscrolls, and plushies.

I don't suppose you'd like to see a list of everything I have, do you? Heehee :D :thumbsup:

10-22-2002, 11:12 AM
Oiy...I collect anything and everything Legato Bluesummers, any Trigun action figures, Trigun posters, cards (I have two sets of Trigun cards...), and Trigun Maxiumum. I'm a little...obsessed...no? :: gazes at her Legato Clock ::

I also collect doujinshis from Final Fantasy VII. Of course, these all have something to do with Vincent Valentine...

10-22-2002, 11:38 AM
I'm a little picky about what I collect; I don't like to buy things that will just end up getting stuffed on a shelf somewhere, and not looked at for months at a time. I normally stick to soundtracks, videos/DVDs, wall calendars (my secret obsession, lol, the big japanese ones where each two months has a new page and you can pull off the old one and use it as a poster!), and ANYTHING Suikoden. ^____^ Some manga too, but it really depends on the series.

Studmaster
10-22-2002, 12:17 PM
For me, the one thing that I love to collect is Sakura Taisen memorlobia. If it's Sakura Taisen, and if it's good. I must have it. Hell, I'm buying the Japanese version of the Movie in November and the complete song collection in December, along with the last story OVA of my favorite charcter (see my Avatar = Sumire)

I've also gotten into collecting Hentai Manga too. (*everyone looks at him funny*)

Rosiel
10-22-2002, 12:53 PM
I collect cels (Gundam Wing and Arslan Senki only, to try and limit the insanity), and doujinshis (Flik/Odessa, Culgan/Seed, Treize/Une and Heero/Relena only, for the same reason).

I buy a lot of other things, like manga and DVDs ans OSTs and lots of artbooks but I don't consider those collections.

Tenshi
10-22-2002, 07:39 PM
Dolls and figurines. I LOVE dolls *_*. My doll collection consists of only Sailormoon stuff, but I have lots of little figurines. My favorites would have to be my 12" vinyl Laguna figure, and my Sailorjupiter Dream Pocket. I've stopped collecting them, because it's too expensive ~~;;.

Tenjou
10-22-2002, 07:48 PM
This reminds me of some more Sailor Moon stuff I have: I got two SM shirts, a lunchbox, four SM sketchbooks, and two CDs. (lunarock and the soundtrack with dub songs) ^^ ehehehee!

There are a few series where my goal is to get basically all the merch there is. That would be Bebop, DNAngel, Shaman King, and Saiyuki. lol but except for Saiyuki there's not much out there for those series, so it's not that hard. I've helped my friend put together a very respectable collection of Silent Mobius and Zillion merchandise (including cels). And yes, even though I'm a fan of both as well, I've bowed to her fandom and given her the stuff I find . . . except my keychain of Kiddy's gun. That's so mine, lol.

I'm also a sucker for Inuyasha stuff, and have a number of overpriced plushies from multiple series (mostly the expensive ones are Ghibli). If I see a legal pin from a series I've seen, chances are I'll buy it, cause the legal ones are hard to find. Plus I do the other stuff; shitajiki, cels, keychains, CDs, figures, postcard sets, and the occassional artbook (I have remarkably few artbooks for some reason), and other misc stuff. I have a Saiyuki washcloth/mini towel . . . ^^

Other than Anime/Manga itself.
I collect pretty much anything anime/manga I can find, but I do have a very large figure collection. I like the figures a lot. And I love sailor moon, like alot of people it was my first anime, so I have a shelf dedicated just to sailor moon that is over flowing to other shelves every once in a while. Like the sailor moon figures are on some of my figure shelves lol :p

I love to collect pins and plushes too.
