Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

My Room from 2010

As you may have seen  my room was recently featured not only on Dannychoo.com but also on Culture Japan! That makes me Super Duper Excited! I figured Danny was awesome in posting these pictures but who else to give you the guided tour but me!

Ok first off, I’m gonna tell you the truth… IT’S NEVER THIS CLEAN! I’m so your typical otaku and sadly a bit of a slob, there normally is a huge hamper overflowing with clothes, and the bed usually has either clean clothes that needs to be put away, my purse, laptop and more.

This little bench is a new addition to my room and I adore it, mainly since all these plushies used to sit on the bed and when I went to sleep they’d go on the floor. Now why did it suck having top put them on the floor? Because then I’d be too lazy to do my bed and put them back on so I’d have a huge pile of plushies and pillows on the floor for weeks. This way now I just move the Dakimakuras over to the side of sit them on my chair and I’m good to go!

Good thing some friends didn’t see these pictures before hand, on the very top the blue box and Azunyan were Christmas gifts that I hadn’t wrapped yet! Also some remnants of my messy room on the book case with random crap all around the bookcase.

The view from my desk of the rest of my room, you can’t see it but right outside the door is a lamp I need to throw out, like 15 pairs of shoes and tons of dirty clothes that needed washing, oh how I love the illusion that my room can be so clean! Now to just maintain it clean since I took these pictures, so far I’m doing a good job!

These are figures that actually don’t fit in my case, I like to leave figures that are from the same series grouped together and they are all just a little too awkward to fit in any one of my cases, but yet I do like them on the wall.

My two figure cases, I do love them but neither are the best for figures. What I’d truly love would be a proper glass curio cabinet. The detolf has too much wasted space for 1/8th scale figures and the other one with it’s dark color and only have glass on the front makes some figures seem hidden in the background. But you take what you can get! As well as much as i adore my closet door covered in posters I’d rather have them be Mirrors so I can then remove a stand up mirror and replace it with yet another Detolf for incoming figures!

Top of the case has more plushies and other knickknacks I’ve collected, some adorable piggies my aunt bought for me, my steampunk goggles, my old camera body for the Canon Rebel XSi, plenty more Disney Plushes, a few lenses, and a lamp.

You can’t see it well here but the flag is signed by the character designer for Gurren Lagann and the director. I sadly didn’t get to get it signed by Konish this year at Anime Expo since I ended up being a little busy :'(. One day I’ll get it signed!

My small but slowly growing movie/anime collection. It contains mostly Disney Movies as I’m trying to collect every Disney animated Feature, I even have Song of the South, sadly a Chinese bootleg since it was never released to home video since it was deemed too racist. I however love it since an old family friend’s father who I grew p with would sing the songs from the film and it brings back good memories for me. Little known Disney fact is that Splash Mountain is based of the film Song of the South.

I have a few plushies here as well, I’m very picky when it comes to pluhies but still love them, sadly many are bootlegs.

Dollfie Yoko, we all know i finally got my hands on her but sadly she won’t be in her default outfit for a while. I was warned it would stain and it did. Going to start to process of stain removal but at least now she’s in a white dress that hopefully won’t stain.

You can see all the mess under my small photo studio. It’s filled with papers for backgrounds, props and camera equipment.

My desk, again normally not this neat. Even as I type this I have a few soda cans, some business cards, scissors and more. If asked what would my New Year Resolution would be? It would be to make sure I post more often here, and it would be to make sure my room looks this clean! I’ll do my best! Also last Wednesday we aired the Official Trailer for Toybox on AX Live! Thanks for taking a look and Happy New Year!

    You have quite a nice upgrade of your room from last year, I love it!
    It does remind me that I need to get around to posting my room again, now that nearly a year has passed. Though mine didn’t go through as drastic as a change with new shelving like yours did. =)

  2. wieebiee says:

    awesome !!!!!

  3. Lunar says:

    Sweet room :3 love it alot, hope to have a room like this soon X3

  4. Yumeka says:

    Incredible room! You even have more posters on the wall than I do, but I think that’s ’cause your room is bigger overall than mine ^^,,, My room was featured on ANN’s Shelf Life in ’09 (more for the posters rather than the DVDs and figures). You reminded me that I should take updated photos of my room for the New Year.

  5. ojisan says:

    I had no idea you were so into CardCaptor Sakura as well. Your interests manage to look completely over-the-top-unhinged and beautifully varied and nuanced at the same time –

  6. moonspeaker says:

    Very nice overall 😀

    One question though, are those REAL Little Mermaid animation cels complete with backgrounds hanging on your wall?! If so, that is insanely impressive.

  7. Game Rumble says:

    Amaaaaazing! I want to be in a room filled with figures too! But I want mechs… Ok, girl figures will do too! Lolz!

  8. Todd says:

    So feminine, yet so awesome all at the same time. Nice balance! Wish I could deck out a room with all my otaku stuff!

    My room used to be covered in posters, when I see yours I get nostalgic for those days. But when I bought a house with my guy I made a firm decision that our bedroom would be belong to both of us and be hobby neutral, in other words completely free of my figures/posters. But, I was allowed to have the spare bedroom all to myself any my hobbies but I filled it with so many shelves and bookcases that there really isn’t much room for posters. I have quite a few wall scrolls that I adore hanging up in the basement though, I have a lot of blank wall space down there. I’m hoping to do a “room post” in the next month or so. I’m currently still slowly re-arranging my setup. Although my next pictures may not look as impressively full because I’m putting some manga into storage to make room for more future figures.

    With regard to Disney I hear you 🙂 I actually purchased many Disney movies on DVD (platinum editions). But when I saw the media format was changing I sold them for about $20 each and sat tight and waited for blu-ray. I’m slowly collecting my favorite Disney movies in blu-ray, although I admit I’m not going to collect them all. Just the ones I often have urges to re-watch. I’d say right now the two movies I re-watch the most are Cars and Beauty and the Beast. I recently stumbled across something VERY dangerous to someone who loves both figures and Disney. The Jim Shore Disney statues/figures. I bought one of Belle and the Beast dancing and had to show some serious restraint to stop myself from buying all the princesses from the set. BUT I do admit that when I got an Amazon gift card I spent it on an Aladdin/Jasmine music box/statue that I can’t wait to get. I’ll be keeping a close eye on Jim Shore from now on and slowly build up a lovely (SMALL) collection.

    Sweet room you got there. And if you ask me, it doesn’t matter if room is messy but the rooms floor is clean! And yours floor surely is clean!

  11. Kanesha says:

    Amazing room!! You inspire me to have my room this awesome (and seemingly neat) one day

  12. Man, your room completely puts mine to shame. My walls are rather bare so lately I’ve been hunting lithographs, prints and nice posters to put up.

    Your room is a paradise for otakus. Otakus can’t possibly yearn for anything more than this. Seriously.

  17. Chuy says:

    You have an awesome room ^_^ I wish my room was more otaku-ish and that I had as much anime figures as you. I just have one question for you: Do you have insurance for your house or at least for your room?

  18. Dinara says:

    wow your room is amazing!! I wish I could fill my room with all our anime stuff so it’s all in one place. But our stuff is so spread out. >.> I don’t know which is better?

  19. shinkonryu says:

  20. Kitty Kandi says:

  21. Janakin says:

    O_O Holy crap your room is amazing, the Yoko Army alone made me wet my pants. I thought I was going overboard with my Yoko collection (I have about 15 figures) but then you have all the ones I have and then some, so so so jelly.

  22. Jeff says:

    I was thinking about something like this myself but seeing as how im still in highschool I don’t have much to work with haha. The main type of animes I like are mainly 80’s and 90’s or atleast routed there like ghost in the shell, cowboy bebop, golgo 13, you’re under arrest and more so it can get hard sometimes to find stuff. So far I have 2 cels from you’re under arrest and I plan to get some more cels and posters, but I’m held back from 2 things. A, being I’m in highschool and have a -4 dollar annual income basicly and I’m already saving up for a new motorcycle, and B, it would be awkward to have some of the bit more racey stuff in my room with my mom around. But after college I’m going to move to some asian country like japan or taiwan and be poor for like 5 years then I can have a room like this haha. Very nice room though!!! I really want to see an updated version!!!!

  23. Merc says:

    Good Afternoon

    I have a niece who loves all things anime. She has a birthday coming up and I would like to purchase some things for her. Could you provide me some reliable and trusting websites I can go to?

    I love your desk and chair in the corner, could you tell me where you got it?
