Mostly figures and some video games, only because it is harder to find that stuff here in the USA. It's fucking expensive but I'm happy to support whoever made them.

Yes. Figurines come from Ami Ami, Big In Japan, HobbyLinkJapan, The Otaku Club, Hobby Search, Mandarake, Amazon.jp through a broker, to name a few. Music CD's come from CD Japan or other Japanese sites that are easily translatable in Anglais. Cost evens out once EMS shipping is added but orders from Japan get filled while orders over here may or may not be fulfilled 100%. Prize figures all come from Japan.

Most anime I get is via US vendors. Anime illustrated art books, certain titled manga I order overseas. The internet has really made overseas buying easy. Yea!

Only Anime Merch I buy are Figures and Plushes.
As for buying anime, I don't need to since CR is an amazing way to stream anime. Disc media from Japan is overpriced compared to American media.

Figures aren't cheap either for us, but those are things you can't get anywhere else, so what can you do but treat it as luxury items?

yep. Music and figurines. One paper umbrella and a pair of chopsticks. And food. I loved a certain Chinese vine, maybe I'll buy it again... Well, it wasn't exactly IMPORTED (by me), for it's in store where I lve.

Mostly figures, even though I stopped a while ago because I ran out of space.
