Hi! Thanks for stopping by. A little something about me:

*I'm a late Otaku.

*I used to consider anime as cartoons, but got really deep into anime since late 2005.

*I started my figure collection in late 2012.

*I'm trying to be a good hubby and daddy, even though I have the heart and mind of a 7 year-old.

*Before turning into an anime fan, I was a huge RPG fan, which I think it had a lot to do in me getting interested in anime.

*Currently, I still enjoy RPGs, but I don't have much spare time to play them like before.

*My old favorites include Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy (IV, VI, VII & VIII), Terranigma and Breath Of Fire II, to name a few.

*Beside anime and figures, I also love comics, movies and TV series.

*I'm also a sports fan, soccer and basketball being my favorite sports.

You can check my anime list here. Let me know if you wanna discuss any anime listed there. See ya 'round!



Sí, la línea de revoltech con marvel se ve bastante bien.

Nueva, podría recomendarte mob psycho, es del mismo de one punch man, pero diría que es mejor su nueva historia

Hay pocos, sí.
Noventas... diría que es la edad la verdad, me cuesta algo encontrar figuras de las series que me gustan. Sí, Koto tiene mucho, he visto que Figma ha estado sacando como Bandai, varias figuras que sí quisiera comprar.
Una lástima que aquí es bien poco o raro el lugar dónde encontrar, muchos bootleg, talvez demasiado y lo peor, que los quieran vender como originales.

Thanks for the birthday wishes sir! Appreciate it. And sorry, life has been really hectic lately- what with moving and making the decision to move to another state next year there's a lot of change on the horizon... How about you? How is the family doing?

secretly-otaku3 år sedan#22532702Ohhh, good luck with that! You'll save tons of money once he stops using diapers... until you have to get diapers for the new baby, haha! Do you already know if is gonna be a boy or a girl? I bet you want a girl ;P.

It's a boy (I found out from the genetic / chromosome blood test they do pretty regularly now!) I didn't really care either way, but I'm kind of relieved we'll get to reuse all the same "boy" stuff and no one will feel compelled to go overboard with frills and pink! I'm the only female in my house forever, though - husband, 2 sons, male cat, lol!

secretly-otaku3 år sedan#22511785Hey there! Sorry for being nosy, but I read in a blog post that you're expecting your 2nd child. Congratulations!
Being a parent is such a great and blessed experience. It does test your humanity at times but, even though I still believe I'm far from being the dad I want for my girls, I wanna do everything in my hands and beyond to make my family happy.
Otakuparents FTW! XD

Thanks! I agree! We're currently working on potty training my 2 1/2 year old, lol!

secretly-otaku3 år sedan#19750534Hoping you will solve your issues in the best possible manner.
Well, it is strange. You know, one of the specialist we spoke with told us that our daughter could actually have an advantage compared to other people in certain areas of her life, mostly studies and work, but what we need to work on is in her social skills... and to make her feel as normal as possible so she won't use her condition as a excuse to do and say whatever she likes. So it was kind of a warning for us, like saying: "don't give her the key to control you". We have a long road to walk in front of us, but we're positive.
Well, I have seem all of my orders over and over again... and well, they all are needs xD. I mean, of course, they all are expandable if need be... but I still feel I'm not there yet. However, our car broke down last week, so there's that TT_TT... I'm telling you, evil forces are surely working extra shifts to make me bend my knees, but I'm pushing things as far as I can, damn it! Life, you can't do this to me, not when Nendo Iowa is within my reach!!
Ohhhh... so you are an apostle of Yohane and accidentally hit a nerve back there... well...
However, I'm speaking from the heart, I swear. Yoshiko feels forced and doesn't blend that well with the rest of the girls. I didn't know there's gonna be 2nd season, so let's see if I find her better the next season. I surely found Hanayo way better in the 2nd season of the original LL and she remains up there in the trinity of Muse, along Kotori and Eli, so who knows! My heart is right there, Yoshiko... just come and get it if you can.
And I agree with you regarding Mari. Not too crazy about her... by herself... but when she's on screen with Kanan... oh boy, oh boy!
Sweet Yuri, the guiltiest of my pleasures
And I think nobody can deny the yuri juices oozing out of Sunshine, M I Rite? I mean, c'mon! We have Ruby and Zuramaru, Chika and Riko with a side dish of You... and well, there's Dia and Yoshiko, but that's never happening... or is it? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Anyway, crossing fingers, arms and legs for you to be a lucky winner of a ticket to their next live... but are we talking about going to the ACTUAL live... for real? Holy crap, dude!
And that Ranko figure... oh Gosh, she's amazing. Truly a work of art... but considering the extra expenses I'll have for my daughter's therapy, it is just out of my reach. I mean, I could get her if I completely dedicate a budget of 3 or 4 months to get her... but I've also been eyeing this jewel ITEM #287700, which I feel will be just as expensive if not even more expensive than Ranko. What do you think? I'm not even that much of a Guilty Gear fan... but I find this figure completely glorious and I just want her so freaking bad!

Thank you sir, I appreciate that. And yeah, I can see that actually- sounds like she's basically going to become a savant. I have a few friends with siblings that have been diagnosed with similar conditions and lead perfectly normal lives while excelling in certain categories. It's definitely not going to be a easy transition, but I have faith that you and the missus will make this work.

It took me a while to distinguish between 'want' and 'need' so I can totally understand that! I've been selling a decent bit of stuff as well, and it feels kind of cathartic to be honest. While it's kind of sad to let some of these go, I'm trying to be more financially responsible and start investing for the future. Not going to give up collecting, but slowing down/cutting back won't kill me. Life is funny sometimes isn't it? There are times where it feels like everything is going your way and times where it feels like everything that could go wrong goes wrong... Them's the brakes I suppose. Don't let these roadblocks get in the way of you acquiring Iowa though! Her smile needs to be protected.

You're forgiven. I know she's not the most compelling character but I'm drawn to her for whatever reason. (I like my women crazy, I suppose) Here's hoping they give her more development in season two. And yeah, Mari isn't a great character by herself but when she's with Kanan everything is wonderful because yuri is the purest form of love and Kanamari is so canon it's not even funny. I haven't gotten aboard that many ships for Sunshine yet, but there's still time! I'm all in on the Yoshiko and Hanamaru ship though, as that is the truth. (the amount of fanart that exists of them together seems to indicate a lot of the fandom agrees with me)

I doubt I'm going to win, but if I DO... I will make this happen, mark my words.

Think I'm going to gamble on Ranko after she releases- I'm hoping that people realize that Alter is out of their damn minds charging that much for a non-exclusive and she drops to a more reasonable price. Or she doubles/triples in price like the SIF set and I die a little inside.

Ramlethal has a really appealing design, but I don't like the way she plays. Depending on how she turns out I might get her? Definitely not a must-own for me but Max Factory generally does good work. I don't think she'll go up after release so if you want her, I think you can safely wait until she's out, no need to pre-order. Isn't she a bit... revealing though? Is that going to pass inspection?

It's been a while, my friend. How are you doing?
On my side, well, I have been having a hard time at work lately with tons of stuff to do and I'm not feeling as healthy as I used to, but still trying to do my best.
Family is Ok. My younger daughter was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome recently, so we had to make a few changes at home. I mean, I don't see this as a bad thing at all, but investment will be required heavily, both economically and emotionally.
Hobby at the end will be impacted since we need to take her to therapy, so I have been tempted to cancel a few things, but I have made my numbers and I should probably be OK with the orders I have now... but can't say I will be able to keep the same order habits xD. But anyway, I'm getting to a point where I have almost all nendos I wanted... but those rereleases man, those damn rereleases!
Anyway, anime-wise, I was FINALLY able to watch LL Sunshine and gotta say... I'm not too crazy about it. There are still a few things I liked... specially You Watanabe, she is the loveliest girl I have seem in a while, good overall stats, nice looking girl with uniform fetish and looks great in a swimsuit... I mean, I feel it was tailor-made for me. But the story isn't an actual strength in Sunshine. Sometimes it feels a bit forced... but then there was the Kanan-Mari episode, and gotta say I'm not fond of shipping, but that episode in particular...
Overall, a fun series to watch, but it falls short in comparison to the original Love Live. And unlike the original LL cast where I liked every girl, I just couldn't stand Yoshiko. I thought I would love her and she would be as cute as a Rikka in Chunibyo or Ranko in Im@s, but no... it wasn't like that AT ALL!
Hoping to read from you soon! See ya around!

Greetings sir! For the most part, all is well- have a few personal issues that I'm dealing with, but it's nothing I can't handle.

I am sorry to hear that, I can't even imagine what you and your wife are going through- but I sincerely hope everything works out both emotionally and financially. It sucks that you might have to cut back on collecting, but at the end of the day family is more important. And besides, you can always just track down some of these things on the aftermarket you know?

Well, it might just be one of those situations where you have to look over all your pre-orders and ask yourself "is this a want or a need?" I've been giving up quite a few of mine as I realized that I have a really bad habit of ordering things on impulse and have been trying really hard at working on my self-control.

I... Actually just finished buying all of season one of Sunshine. I'm very emotionally invested in it, even watched a stream of Aqours first live at a movie theater downtown with a friend of mine. Volumes 5-7 also has a raffle for a chance to win tickets to their second live! Hold my beer, I'm going in. I thought the first half was a bit weak, but the second half had some of the best writing the series has ever seen- that, and the songs are all fantastic. Can't wait for season two in the fall! And yes, You is quite lovely- that is a smile worth protecting. Not crazy about Mari, but I love Kanan and the Kanamari ship is delightfully gay that I find it hard to not be behind 110%.

What did you say about Yoshiko? How dare you sir, I challenge you to fisticuffs. You leave my demon-worshipping chuuni waifu with the voice of an angel and them child-bearing hips alone. Personally, I don't care for Rikka at all but I'm kind of thirsty for Ranko. On that note, are you going to order Alter's new figure of her? She looks absolutely stunning, but man... What is that price? I need to think this over.

Drop me a line anytime sir, it's always a pleasure to hear from you! :D
