edit: i just wanna say thank you to everyone who has posted. i am so happy with all of the responses. when i originally made this post i did not know if anyone was going to say anything at all, so seeing people who i am familiar with, and people who have been lurking, posting and introducing themselves just makes me happy. if anyone wants to send a friend request or a dm to me, please do! and don't be shy to say hi to others who you see have similar interests as you! i can't wait to respond to everyone and say hi ^_^

so since we had that post the other day that was about the community falling off a little bit, i thought i'd just make a little post that maybe would connect some people with some friends and have them feel like they knew some people in the comments a little better so everyone feels like they can participate ^_^ it's always easier to be more understanding of one another if we know a few things about each other!

so if you feel like it, introduce yourself to everyone! here's some suggestions on things you could say

name/what you like to be called
where you're from
what your first figure is
your favorite show, video game, or manga
how did you get into the hobby
what are your other hobbies
fav animal
a cool fact about you!

my answer under the spoiler, and nice to meet you all! ヾ(^-^)ノ

View spoilerHide spoilerhi hi hi. my name is gala and i'm 23 and from los angeles! i've been watching anime my whole life. my mom thought japanese cartoons were more enjoyable to her as an adult than the cartoons on tv, so that's where it all started. my absolute favorite anime of all time is yuyu hakusho, but my first figure was ITEM #78404, and i got her off of amazon. somehow i bought like 7 figures off of amazon without a single bootleg, but that was a while ago! probably like 2013. i feel like there are more bootlegs out there nowadays. i also love playing video games and i love old school video games, my dad collects atari vector machines. i love cats! and my middle name is my fav color 8) nice to meet you all!

Gala .. you have been especially kind to me as I started out here, and I want you to know how much I look forward to your comments every time I post a review. Now, that's not to put any pressure on you! :) I just genuinely enjoy your feedback and your bright and positive attitude!


omg haha your comment just brightened my day! honestly i always am on the lookout for your reviews, and i absolutely love your photography in them! so i'm always excited when you post one and i can't wait to comment.

i think a girl i used to know was also directly descended from the mayflower. thanksgiving isn't necessarily my favorite holiday, but what i love about it's modern meaning is that it's all about spending time with family. i feel like this isn't something we do a lot of in the modern age, and it's something we need more of! also i love that your family is part of your hobbies! i bet you are such a good dad.

Kind of a late reply, but I'm enjoying getting to know some of you in the community and would like to build that "online friend" base! :)

One with the show, this is it! (can you name where that comes from?)

name/what you like to be called: Happyakrz -- it's a nickname I've had since high school and is a play on words referring to my true last name -- Merrifield

where you're from: Michigan, USA -- don't know why I've stayed here all my life .. I guess I like the changing of the seasons and the ridiculous weather patterns

what your first figure is: My first purchased figure is Hatsune Miku (Racing Miku 2011), but the first figure to get into my hands (due to shipping) was Ayanami Rei (from Amazon)

your favorite show, video game, or manga: Fav show is a tie between Sword Art Online and Arpeggio of Blue Steel. Fav manga is a tie between Air Gear and Death Note (although I'm now reading a ton of them that I really like). Fav anime-oriented video game is Nier:Automata - Fav non-anime-oriented game is Subnautica.

how did you get into the hobby: Sold a large collection of dolls and converted the money into a small collection of figures!

what are your other hobbies: Photography, spending time with my kids, and loving my wife!

fav animal: Snow Leopard

a cool fact about you!: I'm a direct descendent of Myles Standish (Captain of the Mayflower). I like what I know about him, and I love the Thanksgiving tradition of the pilgrims, but I always feel a little awkward about this aspect of my lineage because of what we (the collective British and European rabble who escaped a form of oppression) ultimately did to the native Americans. I love the idea that we shared a table and bread with them at the beginning. Shame on my ancestors for allowing what followed.

There you have it. Me in a nut shell. (Now I'm thinking of Austin Powers miming on his rotating bed, "No, THIS is me in a nutshell!) lol

My favourite starters are definitely Piplup, Rowlet and Cyndaquil! I mostly choose water or grass starters~ Grookey is so cute!!! I still haven’t decided which starter to choose in sword and shield yet, I’m leaning towards Sobble.

wow that game looks really fun and cute. also i love the explanation for your username! also don’t be afraid to not have a collection yet, everyone starts somewhere. that figure you preordered is absolutely beautiful and is an amazing start to a wonderful hobby. also i love hamtaro i was literally reading the lyrics to the theme song with my mom in the car ride before writing this response lol! haha i remember doing an assignment like that for school. i chose the “aye aye” lemurs … and made my title “aye aye captain” (very funny, i know).

Aww thanks! And your school project title is fun and unique!

hi minty! i love that scale. i don’t know where it’s from, but i’m a sucker for anything with cats in it. i’m surprised i don’t own a bunch of cat girls lol. WOW your art is so vibrant and colorful! you should make some kind of social media to post and show your progress! please continue to make art. i’m also studying japanese in my free time. rosetta stone has been very helpful to me. i want to visit japan as well but want to know the language better and also want to go with a very full wallet.


Sorry for the late reply, but thank you so much! Also good luck to your studies as well, maybe we can try to practice with each other some time.^^ Also definitely agree, I also want to try to do some research as well on all the transportation systems too. Don't want to get lost =v=;

hi josine! FMA was one of the first mangas i ever read, but i didn’t get very far. i really want to pick it back up but i’m not sure if i should watch it or read it. what’s your opinion? also that’s amazing that you’re interested in animal evolution and plaeontology!

I have to confess I'm not really a manga reader and I have yet to fully read the manga :# I do plan to though! I have the first 11 volumes at home. That said, I think you can't go wrong with either and it's probably a matter of if you prefer reading manga or watching anime ^^ If you go with the anime, Brotherhood is the one that follows the manga closely; the 2003 FMA has a different, anime-original ending.

galablue8 månader sedan#70190264hehe, i think i’ll call you banana for short 8). fruity names are great. my little brother’s fav series is one piece! he still keeps up with the manga weekly and has read it about 4-5 times. i always try to get him one piece merch but he doesn’t want to advertise that he likes anime, but i managed to get him a shirt from uniqlo and he wears it every now and then!


Lol! I'm totally fine with Banana!

That's great that you were able to find your brother some merch he likes! Uniqlo has some really cool, subtle One Piece designs. That subtlety is useful when you want to be discreet about things you like :D

guten taag leike (my terrible german which i won't even spell check, and it might not even be morning there lol!) wei gehts? as i have said with several people before, please never let your english be a barrier for participating! your english is really good and it’s amazing that you are good enough to write on a forum board about a hobby you love. also it’s amazing practice. so please don’t be embarrassed! i wrote it before but i watch AoT with my dad lol… he really likes it. i used to play a ton of overwatch but stopped over the summer as i don’t have enough time to play anymore. also your art is good, you should call yourself an artist! plus you do GKs which take a lot of artistic talent. believe in yourself, leiki, you can achieve anything!! also please make loot blogs! i love reading those.


Thank you so much for your sweet words <3 It's so cool that you watch AoT with your dad. I'm already happy if my parents remember the name of my favorite chars XD
maybe I'll take some time to make my loot posts, not sure yet, but I definitely want to show my second finished GK. I hope to finish the blog in a few days :> Thank you so much again.
