A post on M12’s blog challenged his readers to post about their otaku merchandise, and I thought that I would take up the challenge for once. So here goes.
A lot of figurines and manga have piled up over the years… so instead of showing off every little thing, I have picked out a few of my favourites, and a few of the most nerdy things in my collection. The one in the banner is one of my figurines actually – I doubt that any casual Tsukihime fan nows who Phantasmoon is, so I’m counting that as a true otaku possession 😛
We’ll start with artbooks:
The Disgaea artbook is my newest one, and I love it to pieces. The art in that game is just awesome. Too bad that most of the books is filled with strategy guides I can’t read instead of pictures 😛 A FFVIII strategy guide snuck in here too… just because I love that game so darn much. Yeah, it’s not very otaku-ish, but whatever.
I have a few other artbooks than these – the two Clamp North/South side books and two old Magic Knight Rayearth books. I really need more artbooks…
Visual Novels are pretty nerdy among anime fans I think, so here are a few of my favourites:
Especially the Monochrome game is nerdy, since I have it lying around without being able to play it. I just hope that some day my PS2 will be able to play import games….
Besides these I also have Kanon Standard edition All ages (what a long name o_O), Yo-Jin-Bo, Hourglass of Summer, Animamundi and Phantom of Inferno.
This is the most expensive dvd box I have ever bought (and probably will buy) @_@ I pre-ordered it from Japan back when it was new, and had to pay a lot of costums too… argh. But it’s a great movie, and the box looks awesome. My beloved watch I bought at a danish con.
And last up is my nerdy cellphone with Ever17 content all over it. It even has You screaming “message! message! sausage!?” everytime someone write me a message. And a “Hologramm” ringtone. Heh.
Can anyone guess which japanese manga are stacked up behind it?
That’s about it for now. Hope I didn’t bore you too much – I promise I’ll try and actually write something about my game’s progress next time 😉
