(Also out of date now! Just turned 27, working in Birmingham, still a massive kid with collecting habits XD)
(This is all SOOOOOOO out of date. I'm 24 now. Not at uni anymore, went to China to teach instead, came back. Haven't updated in forever cos my profile kinda broke a bit.)
I have been a fan of anime and manga before I knew what it was. In 1999 when Pokemon came about I began to watch the usual suspects, Digimon, Monster Rancher, Cardcaptors, Medabots etc, not forgetting Pokemon. And I found a few Viz Pokemon comics. But in 2003 is when I became a hardcore fan. (Reading tons of manga, watching as much anime as I could lay my paws on.)
And as of October 2007(when I finally got a job AND expo came around again), I became a hardcore figure collector too!! I now think I am obsessed enough to call myself Otaku. I'm livin' the Genshiken dream!!!
I'm 21, am at uni.
Tis part of the reason I have a blog I spose. (Below is Chiemi, my blog mascot.)
My favourite figure is Chie Yoshioka from To Heart 2 Another Days, a photo I took of her is below.
You can probably see the similarities between Chiemi and Chie. I just love Chie so much. Tsuruya-san too, but Chie holds a special place in my heart, being one of the first figures I paid pretty much full price for.
To Heart is my favourite franchise. I'd LOVE to play the games aswell as watch the anime n stuff, but it just ain't happening yet... no translations...
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is one of my favourite series, tis a great story, anything involving she-otaku is awesome, and it had Mamiko Noto doing Haruka-chan's voice, so extra *yay* value. My lovely Clayz figure of her below, best available atm, wish there were more.
And finally, this was my 'My Room' entry on Dannychoo.com. I love my Daki-chan. I have a proper Dakimakura case for it now, but I still want MOAR!
