Christmas and New Year are coming. During this year we managed to become good friends, so… how about adding some magic to the upcoming holidays?
Let’s make a Christmas Masquerade with presents!
This event will take a while, so keep patience and study the rules carefully. What we propose is to make a Christmas present for someone from our community. And you will get a present in return. But you won’t know from whom it is until you actually open it!
What can be considered a present?
- a Christmas card
- something made by yourself (for example, a scarf)
- any other small item (a trading figurine, whatever)
- off course, you can buy something expensive, but no regrets when you receive a pair of socks in return
If you want to participate, leave a comment below. After that you will receive a PM with a mask of a participant in it (a picture). It is important: you should keep this mask secret no matter what! Another thing, you should answer to this PM, sending your real name and address (in order to receive your present later).
On the 21st of November — quickly get on our site. We’ll open a new topic showing all the masks which will participate in the Masquerade. Then we’ll be asking you to choose a mask. You can’t choose your own mask or the mask which was already chosen by other user. When every mask will find an owner, you will receive a second PM with the name and the address of a person, you should now send your present to. It is important: you will send your present to the person, who chose your mask (not vice versa). This way you won’t know who will make a present for you. It may sound complicated, but it’s me who will handle everything for you, so don’t worry.
After the 21st of November you will have the name and the address. Please send your present before the 5th of December, otherwise it may not come in time. Then what will be left to do is to wait for your own present. BTW, I’m participating as well. Awww… this is exciting!

Approximately one month is left until the end of our Fall Lottery Event, and we are happy to unveil the small prizes we’ll be giving away this Fall — trading figures out of Bandai’s newest Neon Genesis Evangelion 2.0 PORTRAITS set.
And in case you forgot, our main prize this time is gorgeous 1/6 Asuka figurine by Kotobukiya.
Make sure that the number of your Rating Points and Shelf Points is enough to purchase a lottery ticket. Otherwise we suggest taking actions in order to gain more points.
If you are unfamiliar with the event, you are welcome to read the rules here. There is still plenty of time to settle down on our site and earn at least a couple of tickets.

I am pleased to announce that today we are welcoming mu597 to MyAnimeShelf Team as a Figures Database Keeper. I must say, taking care of figures base is a complicated and rather

Happy Birthday, Our Dear Shelf!
One year has passed since we launched you on 25 October 2009. Our hearts are overflowed with joy, but there is still one thing left to do. We have one more present awaiting to be revealed to public. So, let’s calm down our emotions for a while.
Dear Shelfers, Brothers and Sisters, please welcome our second mascot — Leila Vega. Countless numbers of times we were asked to reveal the personality of the girl standing on the right side of the site. We remained silent… until today. No more secrets. The story of Leila is available for you to read right now. Unlike Michelle’s, Leila’s life is far from fortunate, but we hope you will enjoy her character.
Also I’d like to seize an opportunity and ask those users who draw arts in anime style: please, draw us an art of Leila. She’s so lonely with her pictureless page while Michelle does have so many. We will reward all artists with SP to buy lottery tickets with.
Thanks everyone… and Happy Birthday!!!
22 Oct 2010
Next Monday (25th of October) it will be one year since MyAnimeShelf was officially opened to public. It’s MyAnimeShelf’s Birthday! Yuppie! :D
Birthday means presents. So, we decided to make a present for ourselves, for MyAnimeShelf, for our users. And we’ve chosen one. Guess what?..
A new server!!!
Until now we were sharing a server with a number of other sites. That’s what common
We’re still configuring things here and there, so please give us some time. When we finish, I hope you’ll be impressed with our speed.
Thanks for staying with us :) And be ready for more surprises!
10 Oct 2010
We have returned with a new update. This time we upgraded the figures' shelves of our users. From now on when you grab a figurine to your shelf, you will be asked to fill in a small form. You may want to give a detailed information about your figurine (like when and where did you purchase it, etc.)… or may not :)
You can edit your current figurines in the editor mode on your shelf. I also suggest checking your preorder list: you’ll probably get surprised.
We didn’t have much time to test it, so please if something in your opinion doesn’t work correctly — report!
Thank you for staying with us :)

MyAnimeShelf Fall lottery has just started!
OMG, we have a marvelous prize this time — Asuka Test Plugsuit Version by Kotobukiya. It’s 1/6! And it’s sculpted by Tsukuru Shirahige, who did the previous Rei, Asuka and Mari 1/6 figures from Kotobukiya. Moreover, according to manufacturer, the green parts of the new figurine’s suit will be painted with special fluorescent paint!
The rules haven’t been changed, except for the cost of the tickets:
1 ticket = 60 SP
1 ticket = 40 RP
There also will be smaller prizes, but we’ll keep it secret for now.
You may guess what title they will have connection with ^^
Good luck to everyone!

Michelle heartily thanks everyone for the warm wishes. She was so deeply touched by your comments that it took her quite a while to choose a winner. Finally she made a desicion, and the winner of the Wishes Contest is...
Michelle was charmed by Vivi's photo, since she likes flowers and jewelry and does collect figurines. Besides, as you all know, Michelle is a shy person, who has started her musician career recently, so Miku is a kind of idol for her. Michelle dreams to become as brave and magnificent as Miku one day.
Please do us a favor to accept a small gift for your work. The first ever made MyAnimeShelf cup!

Arranged to Michelle's Sixteen Birthday, we're starting a small contest - a Wishes' Contest! All you have to do is write your congratulation in a comment to this post. You can use images or videos if you like or come to nothing more than a few apt words. Both English and Russian language are acceptable. You have time until Wednesday (which means two days).
The winner will be chosen by Michelle and rewarded with a MyAnimeShelf souvenir with Michelle's face on it.

Hi everyone, I brought you some details on our Summer Lottery which is finally approaching the end.
The event will be stopped on 10 September, 23:00 (Moscow time). That means you won’t be able to buy lottery tickets with SP (shelf points) from this point. At the same time you will receive your
When it comes to your entries — all the figures added before 7 September, 23:00 (Moscow time) will be moderated before the end of the lottery. Everything added later will be moderated afterwards. Remember, that blank fields in anime database can be edited without premoderation. Thank you.
The results of the lottery will be announced within a day or two after it ends. I wish everyone good luck. Saber looks forward to meet her new owner!
Michelle congratulates everyone with the new academic year! Drawn by Flan.

Platina has joined the team as Anime Database Keeper.
Dear Platina, thank you for your support and please take care of our Database :)
28 Jul 2010
Hi everyone, I’m happy to introduce our new system of uploading figures to the database.
From now on all your figures will appear on our database immediately. Though they will be marked as blocked which means no one will be able to comment, rate or add these figures to their shelves. Also they will not be shown on our main page. So, the only reason for this innovation was to avoid duplicates, because it will be possible to find the blocked figures while searching our base. We gave them red frames in order to make it easier to recognize them.
Later a moderator will approve your figurine, unblock it and reward you with SP. You will receive a notification
We also do have a special feature for those of you whose entries are always perfect. In case you don’t know what I am talking about, there is a group of privileged users who are able to upload figurines without blockage. If you want to be within the group just try to do your best while adding figurines to the base.
Figurines database also got some tiny fixes here and there. And don’t forget to report bugs if any.
28 Jul 2010
Impending_Sky has joined the team as a figurines database keeper. She will help me to check your entries and reward you with SP. A good moment to become friends with Impending_Sky, huh? Good luck and thank you for your support which is truly invaluable.
Btw, MyAnimeShelf Team is always recruiting new members. Want to develop the project with us? Contact me.
26 Jul 2010
First of all, I am happy to announce that Shelf admins are back. Did you miss us? ^^ Glad to see that the place is successfully living on its own.
All righty then, I guess I’m going to be pretty busy with Shelf matters these days. Have quite a bunch of stuff, like small bugs, pms and off course figurines waiting for moderation. Please give us some time to manage everything. If you have a problem or question on fire, feel free to contact me via PM,
And the second thing I should inform you about — we are going to upgrade our figurines database in the nearest future and that’s why «Add a figure!» form is temporarily unavailable. I apologize for the inconvenience caused. It won’t take too long.
12 Jul 2010
From 12 July till 26 July both Shelf administrators will be away… for Honeymoon :D Because of that all issues which need our presence will have to wait — including the premoderation of the figurines. I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused. I promise I won’t marry again.
24 Jun 2010
We have prepared some MyAnimeShelf banners and signatures for you — fell free to use them wherever you want.
I know it’s not much, so if you happen to draw something cute yourself, don’t be shy to share with us. The artists of the best custom banners will receive 20 SP for each banner we would like to use as an official MyAnimeShelf pic.
Banners from Amiche:

I am ready to announce the results of the Spring Lottery!
Once again we decided to record a video for you to make the process more entertaining. However, watching us preparing all 119 tickets would be pretty boring, that’s why we had made everything ready in advance and recorded only the part with drawing.
The pictures of the preparation:
Before showing you the video…I would like to apologize for its quality, my English and stupid smiles here and there.
So, here is the video:
Of course, we do not force you to watch the video. You can know the names of the winners by simply opening the spoiler below.

BTW, have you noticed…BTW, have you noticed me turning around in the middle of the video? It was while we were recording it when the hurricane started. It hit the city quite a bit. Overturned refuse bins and destroyed playgrounds…

Due to an outrageous number of figurines added on the last day of the Lottery it was decided to extend it for
one day. You will be able to buy tickets up to 23:00, June 11 (Moscow time). The results will be most likely revealed on Sunday.
07 Jun 2010
The team is snowed under with entries, so I have to limit the number of figures we will process. All the figures added before June, 8th 23:00 (Moscow time) will be moderated before the end of the lottery. Everything that will be added after this time will be moderated afterwards. Remember, that blank fields in anime database can be edited without premoderation. Thank you.

English FAQ was finally upgraded. Huge thanks go to usagi_joou who wrote the largest part of it :)
I’ve also added the following new figures types:
— Official Garage Kit
— Unofficial Garage Kit
As usual, if you have any ideas on developing our project — don’t be shy. You may also want us to include some more info in the FAQ. So, any questions?

Are you taking part in the Lottery this time? :)
In addition, I would like to show you a new Michelle art drawn by our user Skipper:
14 May 2010
Michelle wants to repay your kindness and asked me to give SP bonus to the following users:
The last person mentioned is a young promising artist from Russia who has recently presented us this lovely picture of Michelle playing violin.
Along with SP bonus all three will receive a special award visible on their shelves. Thank you!
08 May 2010
Huh, this one turned out to be pretty big, yeah? It took us quite a long time to handle everything. Have you noticed some changes already? ^_^
Don’t really know what to start from. I’ve probably forgotten part of it anyways T__T
Ok, here we go:
- We’ve got a
Well, not totally new, but lots of things such as fonts, color scheme, comments design, etc. got affected.
Hope, you’ll like it more than the old Shelf :D
- Two gorgeous arts were drawn for MyAnimeShelf by a talented Russian artist called Mistrie.
You can see them both on the background of the site. I’m sorry, but the
full-sizepictures are only visible to the owners of wide-screenmonitors.
So, how do you like Michelle’s new style? Looks like she decided to go a little bit vintage ~^_^~
And who is this mysterious girl on the other side?..
- Talking about Michelle, she got her own page, where you can enjoy her story written by pluvia33 and a couple of illustrations drawn by different users. By the way, if you like drawing, you can contribute as well!
Huge thanks go to pluvia33 and pineappleskewer!
- User control panel was added. So far it includes private messages and last comments option.
Huh, should I explain any further? Well… Yeah, this means now we’re able to write PMs! Send me something! ~^_^~
The second feature gathers the latest comments you’ve received on a special page. The mechanics it uses is quite complicated. I would be happy to hear your impressions on it :)
- Chat option was added for those of us who has nothing to do at work ^_^"
You can activate the chat window by clicking the corresponding button on your CP panel. You can deactivate it by clicking the same button again. By the way, it’s perfectly fine to browse the site while chatting on the same window — you won’t lose any of it!
How about making a small test? Let’s all open the chat window and say a couple of words to each other :)
- External links were added to figure’s pages. If you stumble upon a great
photo-reviewof a particular figurine, don’t forget to share a link with us using this new externals links feature. Proceed to any figurine’s page to see how it works.
- New photo viewer mode was added. Now you can choose between the line mode (the old one) and the sausage mode (forgive the name, nothing better came into my head). Proceed to any figurine
photo-sessionto see how it works.
And that’s all for the most of it. Lots of other small fixes have been made, most of which are somehow connected to Internet Explorer browser.
Hope, you enjoyed Shelf’s new look and features. Thank you!

Rating formula for anime was upgraded. Now it depends not only on marks, but on the number of voters as well. You can see the new leaders on the

I'm glad to announce that Velorn has joined MyAnimeShelf Team as our anime database keeper.
Thanks for joining! I'm very happy about it :)

'My Photos' design was changed.
Mass upload feature was added.
I’ve also provided the form with some notes, check them before uploading something for the first time.
Thank you for staying with us. We’ll be happy to return with more upgrades.
29 Mar 2010
— figure edition is back
— some figure identification bugs were fixed
— outer images don’t mutilate the site anymore
— users activity page was added
… and don’t forget to report any bugs found :)
24 Mar 2010
Ok, the form has been upgraded. It became more clever and will help you to fill in everything properly.
We have also installed another cute feature: now it’s possible to upload a bunch of trading figures at a time. Hope, it will reduce the time needed to add big series of figurines.
I kindly ask you to test our new form by adding a figurine or two, but keep in mind that it can still have bugs.
Please don’t be confused — report them!
21 Mar 2010
"Add a figure!" form is temporarily unavailable due to upgrade process.
We'll introduce a more powerful form to you in a couple of days.
15 Mar 2010
Current news… would you like me to start with the good or with the bad one?
Ok, let’s start with the bad:
For some reason MyAnimeShelf has troubles delivering notification emails again. It may affect every domain including gmail. We’re investigating the issue at the moment. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
And the good news is:
We’re adding a new awards system. In short, you will have a special section «in your room» where your awards will be shown if any.
There would be 2 types of awards: static awards and challenge cups. For example, the owner of the biggest figurine collection (challenge), etc.
The work on this feature is still in progress, but the first awards has been already given to some of you.
Thank you for your time!
