Compared to a lot of my friends, I don't buy nearly enough anime stuff. lol. I gotta start buying more anime dvds though. I just never get around to it. I also want to buy some swords. Why? Because they're freakin awesome!!!

I used to buy a lot more stuff than I do now.

I rarely buy figures and plushies, but I do have a few that I've acquired, most dating way back to when I was a teenager.

I occasionally buy manga and light novels. I used to buy manga constantly, but there just aren't that many series that I'm keeping up with now.

I still buy dvds/blu-rays, but I don't buy nearly as many as I did when I was younger. I also don't usually buy series blindly anymore thanks to CR, Netflix, and Hulu. The ability to check out a series to see if it's actually worth owning is great. If I like the show, though, then I am inclined to eventually get it on dvd/blu-ray because I do like to collect the shows I like. I also tend to wait until I can find the show used at a discount now instead of purchasing right away unless it's something that I really want, or if it's a show/movie that I eventually want and think will be likely to become rare fairly quickly.

I have oodles of dvds and some blu-rays when available.

I'd like to have more stuff/merchandise but it's just not affordable or readily available here in the UK.

A few years ago I was addicted to buying loads a d loads of manga that I actually ended up buying 250 volumes of Korean translated manga that now I have no idea what to do with lol
It was like $40 for all of those volumes that I just couldn't resist.. Now it's just taking up space in the closet xD

Last summer I bought 11 anime box sets!!!

This summer... none. I am licking my wounds from my trip to Japan, and having to buy a brand new MBP as soon as I got back.

But, I did buy Yamada's First Time and Shiki (parts 1 and 2) with part of that $100 iTunes gift card Apple gave me as part of the Back to School promotion. I also got my CrunchyRoll Premium account too. So, it's not all that bad. Actually, I got so much anime access, I don't even got the time.

Shiki is such a great anime, it's definitely in my 10 best anime that have come out in the past 10 years.

Yamada's First Time has one of the most addicting opening theme songs ever. I've finished that series years ago but I still end up coming back and listening to the opening theme one in a while.

I haven't even bought any anime merchandise other than small Pokemon figurines and cards as a kid. Maybe I should start collecting things for a certain anime. I might regret it later on, though.

I'm a big fan of collecting figures and replicas from my favourite anime and video game series. It's a real hit to the bank account though so I'm trying to cut back at the moment. My most recent addition to my collection was a Gears of War Golden Lancer I managed to pick up at a nearby retail store. I always regretted not Pre ordering GOW3 to get the limited edition Lancer but now I finally found one and better yet the price wasn't half bad. :3

I bought a Konoha forehead protector to hang from my car's sun visor. That's pretty much it!
