How many anime or manga do you own?

Hi so I'm just wondering do you have a big collection, small collection?
About how many do you own?
How long have you been collecting?
Any "less known" mangas or animes you recommend or want to get their name out there.(like Millenium Snow, or Beauty Pop less known.)
Any tips and tricks for newbie otakus?

I currently have 67 mangas and 7 animes
I recommend reading 'The Wallflower' if you like high school stories, comedy, and somewhat horror.
Thanks!

I used to own a pretty okay amount and sold it all, so now I have one manga and one anime. Unless you count Miyazaki movies in with it, that would make it like... six.

I gave away many of my manga collection as prizes for an anime club I'm in. I mostly have my manga that are out of print (such as Tokyopop).

07-Ghost
Chobits
DOGS (in Japanese)
Dramacon
Elemental Gelade
Fullmetal Alchemist
Gakuen Alice
Kamichama Karin
Kingdom Hearts (both original and Chain of Memories)
Kodocha (It is so difficult finding these books... Besides the internet)
Nabari no Ou
REBORN! (both Japanese and English)
Rurouni Kenshin (in Japanese. Gift from a Japanese host student)
Shaman King
Vampire Knight
Yotsuba

I don't have that many DVDs but I have many of Miyazaki's movies, Black Cat, first season of Bleach, Darker Than Black and many Pokemon movies.

I usually trade most of my manga once I've finished with them. So I don't really have any clue to have many I currently own. If I had to guess, I probably have about 30 or so volumes of various series and stories. For anime, I jump between crunchyroll and animefreak usually. The only blu-ray or dvd's I buy are movies

The only anime&manga series I own in full is Chobits. I'm not much of a collector when it comes to anime/manga, I'll just watch anime online or on netflix. As for manga, every once in a while I'll read online or rent from the library.

I only own Chobits and Magic Knight Rayearth and some random things at this point.

I got broke once and sold all my Sailor Moons. The vacation it paid for was pretty awesome and I don't regret it - I will always remember reading the books as a kid but I don't miss them now.

I think I actually own a Chobits DVD somewhere, but I was never big into anime - more manga and video games.

Honestly, I've moved on to digital consumption of media and hope that it becomes more of an officially released and supported "thing". I've moved my GB/GBC/GBA game collection onto my phone, my PS1 games and more onto my computer. I mostly watch Netflix for TV and movies. I magically acquire some older TV shows that aren't available to non-magically acquire anyway. I'm sorry BBC, you baleeted your Doctor Whos and it's fair game to share copies with people who are old enough and were smart enough to record the episodes themselves, I feel minimal guilt over this.

Recommendations:
No Chobits. Dear lord. No Chobits.



Let's see, between Brando and myself we have a handful of random single manga books, usually just a random grab from a series that one of us never liked and didn't get back to, but here's what we have in some form of complete collection:

Yotsuba (up to current)
Azumanga Daioh (all)
Gintama 1-9
Hikkatsu! 1-3
Hoshin Engi 1-3
Scott Pilgrim (all)
Sailor Moon 1-4
Dorthy of Oz 1-2
Hellsing (all)

Most of that is Brando's stuff. I own the complete Hellsing manga set and the Sailor Moon ones. I have a large book of several Ghost in the Shell comics collected inside as well.

Most of what he and I have are Western comics. I've got the first League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, a handful of Shadow comics (70's release and Dynamite), some X-Men stuff. Brando has some more in storage.

As far as movies or series we own I've got one Hellsing DVD, some Ghibli movies, he's got some Lupin stuff, animated Avengers based movies and what not. The whole box set for Azumanga.

As a whole I prefer Western comics however.

I feel like I'm missing stuff, but my friends and I had a pretty good lending system going in High School so there are a lot of series I've read but don't own.

I also inherieted the anime clubs library but I have no idea what is in there, except 3 copies of paradise kiss and a couple manga I had accidently bought doubles of.

Thanks Emmers! I forgot about that. There are references to child sexual abuse and a character is sexually assualted in the first manga (maybe second). I haven't read it in years and forgot about that.

The manga also has a giant robotic panda.

Elfen Lied also has references to child sexual abuse/rape.
And violence and nudity.

Angel Sanctuary has incest. (Consensual between brother and sister)

That's all I can think of that need warnings.

Hurr sorry I wasn't trying to like,' rate the manga ' or something.

It was just something I remembered that my friend, who was really into Gravitation and knew a lot about it, didn't tell me when she had me watch it with her and it made me super uncomfortable.
