Alright, so I joined a few days ago because I wanted to add my favourites figures to the database since they weren't there already. I'm Saija, or Roll as I'm known on many websites like Livejournal (roll_chan89, active), deviantArt (RollChan, inactive) and many other places!

I'm 21 years young (yes, young, not old) and am studying to become a kindergarten teacher or a school teacher. I have two cats, Chester (4 years) and Milka (2 years). I love animals, cats and foxes especially~

On my freetime, I usually play videogames like Okami, Tales of Symphonia, Grandia, Breath of Fire series and Pokemon - many rpgs and adventure games. C: I also love writing and drawing, and I'm writing a few novels I'd like to publish someday.

I also love watching cartoons~ Won't babble much about them, though maybe I could mention some my favourite anime shows, since that's on topic here? I really love Tales of Symphonia OVA series, it's really well made and ToS is one of my favourite games, so of course I love the OVA, too! Then there's Chi's Sweet Home. As a cat owner I just simply have to love it! Some other shows I like are Damekko doubutsu, Kino no tabi, Sailor Moon, Moomin, Digimon Adventure and Massugu ni ikou. I'm a member, or actually "the boss" of a Finnish fansubbing team, too. ;P But I guess that should be a secret!

Like most of the people here, I also like collecting figures! My main collections are Pokemon (mostly Vulpix, Sneasel, Miltank and Eeveelutions) and Digimon (Kyuubimon and Tailmon). I also collect Tales of Symphonia and Chi's Sweet Home stuff, mostly figures, plush and straps but also DVDs~ Hopefully I'll be able to list my complete collections here someday - but I'm sure it'll take some time as I have hundreds of figures not listed here. :D

Haha, Chi's Sweet Home is awesome. It's so sickeningly adorable~

Also, you're a Pokémon fan, too? Nice to know. How do you feel about Black and White?

Yeah, Chi is just too cute~ <3

I feel pretty neutral about Black and White, or maybe a little hopeful since the games seem to have some improvements and look nice. I don't really care any of the new Pokemon (except Zoroa), but I'm sure there'll be some good ones, too. C:

I think there are a few Pokémon this time around that are really cool, like Hihidaruma:



And Wargle:



And I like how there so far aren't any new evolutions or pre-evolutions to past Pokémon - I felt that Diamond and Pearl seemed to have an "EVERYTHING MUST EVOLVE, NO EXCEPTIONS" mentality.

Oh, I know what you mean! I don't like newly added evolutions/pre-evolutions too much, except for Eevee of course. ;D I'd really hate it if they gave Miltank a new evolution. D: Oh, and Wargle's definitely one of the coolest new Pokemon~

Hello, nice to see you here ^^
It'll be very interesting to look at your Pokemon & Digimon & other collection. If it's possible maybe you'll upload some photos someday?)

Hello and welcome again! Thanks for a "self-review"^__^

It is really great to know more about people here on the shelf. You seem to be more shonen and kid's anime girl - It's rare nowadays on the "internets".

Say, have you ever thought about showing you future students (or how should I call kindergarden kids) some kid's anime like Chii? When I have kids I'll definitely show them some Miyadzaki and maybe also Chii.

I adore cats, but have a severe case of cat's allergy, so I absolutely can't have them T_T

And given that you're a fansubber (secret^^) - do you know Japanese?
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

Yeah, I really love kids' shows for some reason. <3 Though I do have some more mature favourites, like Kino and Mushishi, I just love the atmosphere on both of those! C:

Actually, yes, I'll most likely show my students some of my child-friendly favourites, like Chi (at least if I become a school teacher - they don't watch tv in kindergartens).

Yep, I do know Japanese, my listening comprehension is pretty good. Must be because Finnish and Japanese languages are so similar, pronouncing-wise. Of course, I can read kana, too, but I'm not too good at kanji (I only recognize 40 or something). xD I'm self-taught so I've never taken any classes, haha.

Mushishi is one of my all-time favorites also^^

Japanese: subarashii! I have a 6 year experience of watching subbed anime, but I can recognize only short sentences and phrases. I think, you've got some kind of talent^^

Finland: me and my BF plan to visit your country someday. It's close to our homeland and I love Finnish nature.

And BTW there was a con in Finland a couple of month ago where one of my favorite mangakas - Nobuyuki Fukumoto (author of Kaiji and Akagi) was present. I seriously considered coming, but I don't know a word in Finnish, so I thought it wasn't a good idea.

Welcome to the site! It's great to see younger Sailormoon fans. Do you also happen to like newer magical shows like PrettyCure?

Thanks! I don't really care for newer magical anime, I prefer Sailor Moon and Mahou Kishi Rayearth, mostly because of the nostalgia value~ Maybe I should try to watch newer shows more, too.

PreCure is pretty good, and Nanoha's great, but Nanoha's more of a mecha-show with lolis instead of robots than a true magical-girl show.

Hello! and welcome to the shelf!

It should be interesting to see your Pokemon collection as I'm just starting to get back into it myself. (Recently got a copy of soul silver)

And by the way discussion of non japanese cartoons is allowed Butt it's just not the main focus of the site.
