Collectibles

Many people collect items as an hobby. Some people collect coins, some collect stamps and others collect old Marvel comics. I, on the other hand, am beginning my collection of anime figures. I have already started ordering new figures this weekend from Amazon and eBay. I love how cute the little nendoroids are especially, the Miku nendoroids from Vocaloid… but now I’m getting off topic. Anyways, when collecting a person needs to have some type of insight on what the latest items are and where you can them. If you enjoy collecting anime figures as much as I do or your planning on starting soon than I know the perfect website to help you get started. That website my fellow Secret Anime Lovers is The Anime Collectionary.

What is the Collectionary?

The Collectionary was built to create a Dictionary of everything in the world that people collect. There are hundreds of e-commerce sites, but there is no dedicated place where you can learn about different items.  Whether it’s the history, facts, or unique attributes regarding a Animeicular collectible or item, they wanted to give people a place to learn about the collectibles we love. The Collectionary is not only a home to Anime collectors but others as well. Some of my favorites are the Hello Kitty Collectionary, the Manga Collectionary and the Disney Collectionary. Their purpose is to give visitors a site where they will enjoy browsing all types of amazing collectibles that were ever created. Visitors can look at many of the nostalgic items on their site with possibility of even bringing back many fond memories as a child or another time in your life. Collectionary wants people to learn about Collectibles and find out where those items are for sale.

How does the Collectionary work?

For those of you who have never been the Collectionary site I am going to explain what to expect. Once you go the Anime Collectionary site there is a search box at the top of the page. In the search box you can type in whatever your looking for, for example, I typed in the word “Miku”. Once I typed in what I was looking for an entire list of Miku items appeared on my screen. After scrolling through the list I found an item I wanted to know more about so, I click on it’s picture. For those of you who are wondering what item I choose it was the, GSC Nendoroid Character Vocal Series 01 Hastune Miku 2.0 + Pouch Miku Ver. BniB. A screen should pop up and give you details on the item you chose. It will give you a brief description, the brand, the size, the type, the year it was made and where you can buy it. Its just that simple!

GSC Nendoroid Character Vocal Series 01 Hastune Miku 2.0 :

miku

 

  • Brand – Good Smile Company
  • Size – 100mm
  • Type- Action Figure
  • Year – 2012
  • The potential place of purchase is eBay 

I also, found the item when I went to Amazon for those people who don’t purchase items from anywhere else BUT Amazon.

If your looking for at site that has the info on the latest anime figures than the Anime Collectionary is the place to go to. They are also, looking for moderators to help increase their dictionary. If you have nothing else do or you enjoy collecting figurines than why not sign-up? For those of you who love your social networks, you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter. Below are some of the other items I looked at while browsing.

New Year All New Post

20140110-004510.jpg

Happy New Year to everyone who has been following my post. I have been hard at work on my new site. I have posted a new review on Winter 2014 anime series, Engaged to the Unidentified. Click for link. I have also been affiliated with RightStuf for some time now so, come view my AniShop page. Click for link. The page shows you the products I personally like from RightStuf and what I think about them. If you click the “view/purchase”, it will send you to the website to view more info on the item and/or purchase it. Prices do vary so I don’t put them on site because I can’t keep up with all the changes. For those of you who don’t know RightStuf.com is an online anime store. I hope this year is awesome for everyone. If you ever want to chat, there is a discussion page on my Official site. Click for link.

Karneval, Not Carnival

Karneval #1

Aah, the carnival. The parades, the music, the rip-off games everyone loves and let us not forget the cotton candy. Wait! I’m not here to talk about the “carnival” but Karneval. Karneval started off as a manga by Touya Mikanagi and is now this Spring’s new animation series, licensed by Funimation.

Nai is imprisoned in a nice mansion owned by a sexy rich lady.

How did he ended up there? Is he a slave? These questions remain unanswered.

He does mention a person named Karoku, who’s bracelet he wears on his wrist.

Nai and Karoku seem to have a connection. My guess is that they may be childhood friends.

Nai desperately wants to find him and he’s only ticket to freedom is a young criminal.

He seeks help from Gareki, who attempts to rob the mansion. When Gareki escapes he ends up taking Nai with him.

With the police on the look out the two decide to leave town.

Just when they think their good to go they fine themselves in a middle of a kidnapping.

The goddess of good fortune does not appear to be on their side.

They also meet some interesting characters along the way. Each giving off the impression they might know the whereabouts of Karoku. But no one is talking.

Whether Nai knows it or not he is now one step closer to finding Karoku.
This all appears to be just the beginning of this crazy carnival ride.

Love & Its Exteremes II

Amnesia #9: Overprotective Lover

20130310-180533.jpg

When you love someone you will do anything to protect them. But sometimes a line needs to drawn between simply protecting someone and taking away their freedom. In this episode of Amnesia
Toma’s love for the heroine spirals out of control. He starts off with just druging her but when that doesn’t work he takes it way too far. She is no longer human but treated like an animal. Locked behind caged doors she rendered helpless.

She trusted Toma and can’t seem to understand why he would do this to her when he loves her so much. Toma tells her he is doing this for her protection but the only protecting she needs is from some jerks who won’t stop harassing her. Is the cage truly necessary? Despite being locked up she never says she hates him. She comes to find out that he may be just selfish. He might be doing this to keep her to himself.

Mao has invited Kyoro’s little sister, Kasumi and her friends along with them. Coincidentally, all of Kasumi’s friends happen to the group’s little sisters.  (This group may be odd but they have the most adorable little sisters. )

Love Live! episode 3

As the girls hold each other’s hands the excitment builds. The curtain rises and tensions rises along with it. Confidence has been restored as the begin to calm down. Their eyes are closed, probably creating and replaying their imaginations of this soon to be perfect moment. As the curtain gets higher the take a deep breath. They slowly open their eyes to capture their audience’s faces…
