Introduction:

Some of my Anime Figurines
I have been a fan of Anime ever since I watched shows like Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon as a kid. To the "uninformed" Anime sometimes has a lot of stigmas like it being just for kids for example, in truth however anime is as (if not more) diverse then any other medium out there. Anime has stories ranging from your general kids shows to adult drama, sports, slice of life, horror and everything in between (and beyond).

Next to the stories that it tells I also really like the "general" Anime art syle in and of itself. One of the other plus sides for me personally is that with it not being live action and thus already disconnected from real life it helps a lot with my suspension of disbelief. Anything fantastical and impossible is easier to except and feels more natural with it all being animated instead of it being real life or a combination of real life and (shitty) CGI.

This interest in Anime then spilled over into an interest in Manga, the live streamers / entertainers that I watch (Vtubers) and a general interest in the cultural differences depicted in these media compaired with my own (as well as the differences between the fictional depiction and real life). It has even slipped into my music preferences with more and more Anime soundtracks and JPop creeping it's way into my previously Metal and Rock dominated playlists.

All of this in combination with me really liking some specific series and liking having physical representations of my feelings towards these series as well as genuinely just enjoying looking at things I think look cool, cute and / or beautiful have caused me to have build up some collections related to Anime (and Manga, Japan, Etc.).

The Vtuber specific part of the collection can be found on the: Vtuber Collection page.

Info:
Ever since I was little Dragon Ball (including it sequels DBZ, GT, Super) have been one of my favourite series.

When I first started watching the orginal Dragon Ball it was the German dub on a German TV channel. We did not have a lot of "cartoon" channels due to not having cable television at the time, so I did not have any other choice. When I was a little older I watched DBZ and GT in English with Dutch subtitles. I have since (re-)watched Dragon Ball, DBZ, Dragon Ball Kai, Dragon Ball GT, (most of) Dragon Ball Super and all of the movies with the original Japanese dub and english subtitles.

The series now claims 2 shelfs in one of my Detolfs. I also have some lower quality figures that I got together with some other better ones, these are dispalyed tucked away in one of the corners of my hobby room.

More pictures of the figures can be found on the dedicated: Figures & statues photography page.

Info:
I am pretty happy with my Monogatari Series collection so far. It is one of my favourite series (Anime, Books and general). It has therefore claimed an entire shelf for itself in one of my display cases as well as a place on some of my walls and in my Vinyl collection.

Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade / Shinobu is my favourite character (from the show and in general). This can be easily seen as most of my owned merchandise is of her.

Info:
Another series that has claimed atleast an entire shelf. One Piece has over a 1000 episodes and has been with me as one of my favourite series for well over a decade now.

The fact that I have been a fan for so long also shows in the dubious quality of some of the figures I used to display. In the past a combination of buget restrains and a lack of knowledge caused me to buy figures from unverified sources, this has caused most of them to be knockoffs. I am now trying to get the whole crew back but with offical figures.
