*Shelf Is Not Mine, just thought it would make a cool header*
Last year I started a general thread about the topic of collecting, so I thought i'd make it an annual thing. Basically for 2013, just come here to talk about the state of your various collections be it anime, comics, cartoons, magna, video games, etc. As well as your future plans for them. Also feel free to show off pictures of your collections if you want. Welp let the fun begin.
I guess I'll go first...
-Anime: Honestly as of now my Anime collection is nearly non exsistant, i'm at a bare minimum due to the fact i'm I guess you would call it "Restructuring" my DVD & Blu-Ray collections in general, also taking a more fickle & *maybe more elitist I dunno* Approach to things, as of now i'm not making any blind buy purchases and don't plan to do so, I do plan to buy some new anime DVDs & Blu-Rays this year, also plan to upgrade some older titles from DVD to Blu-Ray, but sufficed to say like with the past 3-4 years there has been much more shrinkage in my collection then growth, but I do plan to get it buffed up a bit through out the year if I can.
- Cartoons: Actually Bigger then my Anime Collection ATM *Don't hate me* My main goal with Domestic toons ATM is try to keep up with the DVD releases of newer titles, as well as feel the gaps & finish up my Warner Bros. Animation DVD collection. Gonna try to start getting the Ralph Bakshi films too if I can *Although I hear his version of The Hobbit & Fritz The Cat can pretty hard to track down these days*
-Comics & Manga: Domestic Comic Growth continues to grow at a far to rabbid pace, Manga is more moderate, i've cleaned off my shelves a couple times for series i've lost interest in but collection is still at a good "medium" Planning a vast expansion of Tezuka & Vertical Titles soon. Also gonna try to catch up on my Urwasawa. As well as hunt down those Big-O & Tenchi Volumes i'm missing. And looking forward to the upcoming 10-Cent Manga imprint that will be focusing on classic manga titles! Oh and finally theres the Madoka Magica Spin-offs, those come out this year too, looking forward to that.
-Pony Swag Honestly trying to slow down on this one, gonna try to focus more on things that apply to the other catagories like DVDs & Comic book. But will still get some misc Hot Topic Swag & Tee's ever now & then most likely.
-Video Games Again basically almost completely gone from my life, I still have my PS3 and theres a small number of titles I plan to get, and depending on how things go I might try to get a 3DS-XL & PS Vita down the line *Wii-U is probably gonna have to wait till the end of the year or early 2014* But yeah, not much of a gamer anymore, and other then the HD Version of Kingdom Hearts & the Disgaea 10th Anniversary Game, not really anything I can say i'll flat out make a day one purchase. *Although i'm sure a new Sonic game will pop up some time this year I Want* Oh and there is Project X-Zone, that looks interesting... but it won't be out stateside for awhile.
And there you have it, my initial 2013 collectors report! How about you guys, how do your collections fare?
