Mostly just for the sake of messing around right now, I'll get to working on and icon and all that here later.

Firstly, I suppose a welcome is in order! I'm Jobibi/Rin, I don't really care which you call me. I'm a little white girl in the US who at one time used to be a screaming weeaboo. Thankfully I recovered from that, and for a while was almost entirely out of anime. I've recently gotten back into it, but now I have control!

Kinda... XD

Me and The Boyfriend (we enjoy our anime together <3)have recently gotten into the idea of figure collecting. It all started with an EVA/Rei figure that he stumbled across in a Hastings. He bought it, of coarse. But then I started going on about Nendoroids (my weakness!) and the next time I had net access I had to show him. Well, I noticed a nice Vocaloid (my other weakness!) about to go on preorder. The Boyfriend is awesome enough that he's offered to get it for me! *wktk*

The Nendoroid Petit Vocaloid set will be my first figures, and hopefully the start of something wonderful (and bank-breaking).

I'll post a better about and such later as well, this is just for temps.

(avatar is just something quick to post since it requires something. An Umineko icon for my dock, been reading through the VN)

Hello, Rin :) ...and welcome to MyAnimeShelf, I suppose :)

Lovely story! I think it's very important to share hobbies with your beloved one. Some of them at least. You'll get lots of advantages - will be able to purchase more figures, for example ^_^

Ah, yes - and pardon my English. I thought it would be 'sugoku' interesting to make friends with ppl from different countries who like figurines, anime etc - that's why we have chosen English as a main language. So... what genres do you and your boyfriend prefer? Do you play games or read manga as well?

Hello, Glory, nice to meet you!

Don't worry about your english, it's more than fine. :)

Yes, I'm really lucky to have such a wonderful boyfriend that shares so many hobbies with me. ^_^ We have the same tastes in anime, manga, music, games... we're a pretty good match. We actually even took up MMOs so that we could have a game that we could play together.

As for genres, we're not very particular. If it seems interesting enough, we give it a try. :)

Let's see... It's been about 3 or 4 years now? I'm terrible with dates, I'd have to ask him. (hehe, we're a bit backwards in some aspects)

おはRin-ちゃん! MyAnimeShelfにようこそ!
Oha Rin-chan! MyAnimeShelf ni youkoso!


I'm a recent figure collector such as yourself! And It's great that you and your boyfriend share the same hobby! X3 /in b4 mourning about being single

Ah! Nendoroids! We share the same weakness! Although I'm not really much of a Vocaloid fan, but their characters are too adorable to resist OwO and I'm sure that your puchis are not going to be the last Nendoroids you have.

See you around! OwO

Hi, Ninjovee, nice to meet you!

Haha, it seems we share many weaknesses. Saber, too! I've been wanting a Saber Lily for quite some time too, it's definitely on the must-have list. So pretty. ;_;

I also see that you're going to sell your Miku figma. Why? :o Hehe, if nothing else maybe I'll buy it from you. ;P

Oh no, they will be far from last! I have a bookmarked folder full of Nendos I want. Unfortunately, shelves on MAS are easy enough to make, but I'm going to need some real ones soon. XD

Saber Lily is definitely one of ze prettiest in za warudoooo OwO You should probably get her since she's very popular and supplies are going to disappear quickly! XD Right now though, I'm waiting for all my other Saber Lilies -- I only have my Saber Lily figma... which was a present ^o^

Well, WonFes figma Miku was an impulsive purchase and the reason that made me buy her was actually her props. She's already paid for, but after a while, I didn't really want her anymore. Miku doesn't have much appeal to me, although I love her as Black Rock Shooter. I find the other Voca characters more appealing than Miku for some reason... heck, I find Kagamiku more appealing than Miku herself ^^; I'd rather buy figures of characters that I really love (like TAIGA :3) than keep the figure in their box since that just defeats the purpose of buying figures.

I'll probably post about selling Miku when she arrives -- probably January next year, if she doesn't arrive by December. She's an exclusive figure so she's more expensive than the normal Miku figma ^^;

LOL! I also have a huge wishlist of nendos and figmas (and other figures)... and I haven't even finished doing it because there's just a LOT. ^^;

Hope to see some of your collection soon enough! :3

I know, but I can only afford so much at a time. ;_; Maybe with some of that up-coming Christmas money.

I didn't care much for Miku in the beginning, but she's been slowly growing on me. The VN02 that was shown at Wonder Fest was definitely in her favor. It was quickly added to the DO WANT list. XD I do hope they'll eventually do a Kaito figure (besides the Nendos). Gotta get some males in there to keep the parents from saying things.

BRS isn't technically part of Vocaloid, but he used a Miku edit to do the video and thus blossomed his popularity. It will be getting an anime soon now, and hopefully later more pretty BRS figures! I for one wouldn't mind Dead Master getting a figure, as girls with horns are another great weakness. And her horns are so pretty. ;_;

Wah, I can't wait until they come in! They probably won't be ready until early next year too. The wait will be the death of me, but the joy of them arriving will revive me! At least it gives me time to figure out where I'm going to put them...

VN02 Miku was very lovely, but I'm pretty sure that comes with a very, very high price... so I'll just look at her in photos ^^;

LOL. IDK as long as they're nendoroids, I doubt parents would say anything since Nendos are cute as hell and no girl can resist their cute charm for long XD

Ohh... I thought BRS was born because of a song that's also titled Black Rock Shooter. o.o I personally want to see a BRS nendoroid... I think that would be so cute X3

Hahaha! The feeling is mutual... ^^ Well, for me, it gives me more time to save up for my pre-orders! LOL

Well, we'll see if it breaks my price-barrier. I hope it doesn't, something about her has really captured me.

Nah, I can't see them having much problem with the nendoroids aside from if they found out what I'm paying for them. It's all the other various, full-figured sexy ladies that I'm expecting the shifty glances from. Like the SIF EX Velvet that's also on my list. "Where's her pants? Is that a nipple?" That one might just have to wait until after I move out. XD

That's what I had always thought too. But in the article that announced the anime, they made sure to set us straight on that. :P I wouldn't doubt a BRS nendoroid in the future. I'd like one too. :3

Ah yes, saving up money. I'm fortunate this time in that it's his problem, not mine.

LOL. Sexy lady figures. Yes! So far, my figures aren't really sexy (although I would want some) but my parents see them as toys all the same. So far, I only have one scaled figure.

LOL. It's nice having a boyfriend with the same interests >D

I know the boyfriend will want some Rei figures (I'll have to take them until we move somewhere, he has even less space in his room than I do) and some of those can be a bit... yeah. But maybe I'm overreacting their reactions - they did find some of my art after all. >_< But drawing sexy ladies and having expensive 3D versions of them to stare at in your room is a bit different. XD

He was a bit shocked that I was so ok with it. He has no idea how many YEARS I've wanted these things. The wait has kinda come back to bite me in the butt; I had a folder of images on my computer of a bunch of figures I liked. Most of them saved as a sequence of numbers and I have no clue what they are anymore. ><;

As for me, her only minus is that she's Miku. On this subject I think I share ninjovee's point of view. I have nothing against Miku, she's nice, but I can not name myself a fan of her. I wish they made such detailed figurines of my favorite characters. For example, I want Rozen Maiden girls badly :)
