Ice King, Adventure Time

Happy Animeversery to Me!

Ok, so cutting out the drama for once, I thought I would just go over my first year as an anime hobbiest. No, again, I am NOT an otaku, or think I am worthy of the title. I don't think Japanese stuff is better than everything, I have no desire to have a mecca to Japan, and I don't see myself dating what are essentially drawings. I can't stand cosplay, and while I may venture to a convention once I have the means, I have no desire to brag about my anime knowledge which, let's be honest, is limited at best.

So I thought I would quantify what I have collected in the past year to prove I am at least a hobbiest when it comes to anime. Here is what I could gather:

Anime I Own:

1) School Rumble - 3 sets and 1 OVA
2) Azumanga Daioh - 1 set
3) The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - 1 set
4) Shakugan no Shana - 1 set
5) Negima! - 1 Set
6) Love Hina - 2 Sets
7) Full Metal Panic - 3 Sets
8) Negima!? - 2 Sets and 1 OVA
9) Pani Poni Dash - 1 Set
10) Ah My Goddess - 2 Sets
11) Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple - 2 Sets
12) Sgt. Frog - 2 Sets (Preorder, so technically I own them).

So as you can see, I have a modest collection that I will probably take a pic of soon and more is on the way. I hope to find more titles that interest me, and I hope to let you know which ones rock, and which ones fail to make the grade. I hope to, again, do more of the audio Mega Media Mondays (as I get time, realize I'm in college) and just enjoy the world of anime, which was once a strange and puzzling pasttime, is now something I am very much a part of, and I think its made me happier.

Anyways, I would talk about my thoughts on the industry or why I like paticular genres, but I talk about them enough, and probably will when I have little to talk about.

I hope you have a splendid weekend, and look forward to more things on here, maybe....perhaps......

....who am I kidding, of course!
