I know I'm not the only one who has done this so, here it goes. I must purge my geeky guilt!

I just bought a nendoroid Mami and Sayaka to go with my Madoka and Homura (Kyoko will have to wait). I already have the 3 special edition box sets of the anime, but I just couldn't help myself! Of course I'm stoked that I'll have one of each eventually, they will look so cool together! But I can't help feeling guilty at the same time because of the price

I don't think I've ever spent so much on one anime before! Well, except Card Captor Sakura. That was a lot of DVDs to collect and I have all of them including the movies.

Anyway, how about you? Have you ever bought a bunch of merch relating to an anime that you really liked, but still felt guilty about spending so much on it?

I don't buy enough dvds, so much free stuff here and hulu that its hard to find one you can't watch. I do I buy my faves. I buy a lot of nendoroids, but once I got started it seemed to slow down a lot. It seems like I ordered a lot of stuff recently but they won't come for a long time... I have to really like the character and the anime to buy it, so I don't buy much.

Heh...oh, where to begin? I don't feel "guilt" so much as--awe--I guess. I've probably spent enough money to buy a car over the years. DVDs, Blu-Rays, manga, imported music CDs--aren't cheap. Heaven help me if I ever buy Blu-Rays, DVDs or figures from Japan! Oh yeah--there's T-shirts too. (I'm NOT helping myself here! )

I've spent a considerable amount of money on my figure collection and have never felt any guilt for it. Sure, they just sit there doing nothing, can't really do anything with them, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying them. A guilty pleasure without the guilt, I suppose.

I only time I buy a lot is when importing from japan. Lots of production artwork sketches from my favorite anime and also the occasional cels and figures.

Well, my anime collection alone is probably worth thousands. That's a lot of money I could have spent elsewhere, but I don't regret spending it on my favorite hobby. There is no guilt here though, more like pride, most of it was money well spent.

there is never "too much" in my opinion. I have put myself close to an empty bank account a few times though.

My bookshelf is so heavy that the floor starts to creak if you walk near it. It wasn't that way before. Manga and DVD weight add up quick before you know it. Its got 5 years of collecting on it that I have to play tetris to fit new stuff in it.
