I have a theory, /a/.

-People who have seen a large amount of series (over 300) rarely buy anything anime-related.

-People who have seen a moderate amount of series (less than 100) or are new to the genre of anime are more obsessive about purchasing anime-related goods, such as DVDs, manga, and figures.

False.

I've never bought shit, but it's easily disproven by asking people to post pictures of their room.

Honto desu..

I don't buy either. :3
>>
I've always loved how the ToHeart2 characters looked.

Let's play a game:

Weeaboo room, or Japanese otaku room?
>>
I fucking love ronery pillows.
But alas I have a girl and have to sleep on her tits. Fuck sake.
>>
I don't buy DVDs anymore because I waste all my money on figs.
>>
>>11272168
this man is not a real doctor he knwos nothing
>>
I have over 1000 manga on my shelves which I started collecting 15 years ago. Where does that put me?
>>
>>11272179

JAPANESE OTAKU
>>
Seen over 500 series here. I own only two animu DVDs. No manga, no figures.

Oh, and lots of stupid fansubbed shit on VHS.

Theory stands for now.
>>
except in Japan.
>>
I've seen over 200 series and actually started buying more.

>>11272179
Almost certain it's weeaboo.
>>
>>11272224
In a place with either a lot of space, good shelves, or both.
>>
>>11272305
Both, but I would rather prove OP wrong.
>>
Seen over 500 series here. I own all of them on DVDs. Lotsa manga, lotsa figures.

Oh, and lots of stupid fansubbed shit on VHS.

Theory falls for now.

Japanese don't own 360's

Weeaboo room
>>
>>11272351

All the material seems to be in Japanese and the furniture seems Japan-sized, so I'll venture Japanese otaku.
>>
>>11272351
Weeaboo that speaks Japanese.

No self-respecting Japanese owns a 360.

Hivemind, but some buy it for Eternal Sonata and Idolmaster.
>>
>>11272090
it might prove true..

ive watched around 300 series, and the only other animu stuff i buy are plamos of zoids and gundams...

and ironicaly i dont have a dvd of either franchise.
>>
fuck, I want that Mion pillow, but Id rather die than get caught with this shit
>>
>>11272351
Weeaboo; Antec 900 at bottom left
>>
>>11272090
nice room
>>
>>11272515
Some dedication you have. You don't deserve a Mion pillow if you can't accept yourself.
>>
>>11272515
That shouldn't be a problem. For that to happen, you need to have friends in the first place.

Approx. 20 series, I refuse to buy anything.

I always wanted one of those pillows so bad. But nobody knows that i like/whats animu, so...
>>
>>11272829
Obviously you have been here for less than a month.
>>
I've seen hundreds of anime television programs, movies, OVAs, and specials, and I purchase most of my anime. Mostly because I like to have my anime on a material object I can store away, rather than cluttering up my computer. I also buy anime related merchandise, but not much, because I have other hobbies. Having the media itself is more important to me than having models, figures, and other stupid crap.
>>
>>11272918
Enjoy paying for 640 * 480 and yellow subtitles.
>>
I have seen 90+ anime. The only related purchases I have made are GitS 1+2, SAC (bootleg), CB OST 1,2,3, GitS: SAC OST 2.
>>
>>11272849
100 dollars is not a moderate amount of money.
>>
I have a theory, /a/.

-People who have money buy things anime related.

-People who have to pay for rent and college tend to download and not buy shit.
>>
Totally true. Totally fucking true.
>>
>>11272918
Wow. Just wow.

Bumping so that everyone can see how deep your failure is.
>>
>>11273081
Bingo.

My room would be covered in shit if I had money to burn. Not like I have any other hobbies or friends to spend it on.
>>
The only anime thing I have is the Rozen Maiden manga and that is because of my obsession with mai waifu.
>>
I agree with the OP. I've seen tons and tons of anime and I don't buy anything anime related. even when I've had tons of money to burn I don't even bother. in b4 cancer, killing, etc.
>>
I would never buy DVDs or manga.

I will buy a fig or two if I really liked the series.
>>
>>11273016
>>11273107

I'm sorry I'm not some cheap, poor loser who lives in a cardboard box, Anonymous. Enjoy eating out of trash bins.
>>
>>11273202
The failure isn't that you buy things.

It's that you prefer to buy DVDs to figurines, etc.
>>
>>11272090
probably only applies to people who are still sane
>>
>>11273202
see >>11273231

and the fact that you are spending money for lower quality when you could have higher quality for less.

It's the most simple formula for defining the word "stupid" and you are its definition.
>>
i buy manga because i like to read them while i'm shitting
>>
>>11273173
Same here. A couple hotglue worthy figurines is all I got.
>>
SPOILERS: DVDS STOP WORKING AFTER 50 YEARS
>>
been into anime for about 12 years or so. My weeaboo'ism has settled down a lot, but I still have all my old posters and crap from all these years. at this point I'd probably buy some of the more obsessive merchandise just for the novelty factor alone...
>>
>>11273081
>-People who have to pay for rent and college tend to download and not buy shit.

I still bought stuff, even when I was slowly bankrupting myself (well, I would have went bankrupt without buying anime, but whatever).

Now that I have cash coming out of my ass, I don't buy as much.
>>
>>11273388

OH SH**** i will be dead and buried , could i care less ?
>>
YOU

OP

YOUR TOUHOU WALLSCROLLS ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE IMAGE

WHERE DID YOU PROCURE THOSE?!

capslock, etc
>>
>>11273202
Neither do I, but instead of shitty DVDs I buy manga, which I can read while I'm taking a dump in the toilet.
>>
>>11273307
Hello clone.
>>
i've seen a little over 100 series over 5 years.

theory is true if you look at mai waifu- she's just stopped the buying shit at cons phase.
theory is untrue if you look at me- I could never justify spending one red cent.
>>
>>11272090
Actually i wouldn't go that far.

People new to anime tend to buy more shit and collect items, while people who already know this busissnes don't.
>>
>>11272090
>>11272179
Too lazy to read the thread. Did we at least come to the conclusion that either the case the owners of these rooms have yet to have the chance to reproduce?
>>
How does collecting fanart and other free things fit into this?

I have a fairly unholy fanart collection despite having bare walls.
>>
>>11272179
Whoever that is, they have the kohinata white version figure

Fuck
I want it
Sell it to me, seriously
>>
>>11273823
You are good at suppressing your power level.
>>
closet anime fans don't buy superficial shit like that... I guess really outgoing people don't care and just like to be surrounded with that kind of perverted stuff all the time

I dunno about people who have been fans of anime for a long time or people who are new would make a difference. I don't see how it could.
>>
over 200 series and all I've got are a few wallscrolls from chinatown and a Rin plushie.

also I have a teh rei repaint figurine, but I won that as a doorprize so it doesn't count.
>>
>>11272224
I have about 3000 but I still don't think I've read/watched over 300 series, at least that's what I'm hoping.
>>
Only thing I ever bought was the boxed set for berserk but I keep it hidden so no one thinks I'm one of you
>>
Watched less than 10 series and I've never bought anything anime-related.
>>
If you are the owner of the sofmap kohinata and you want to sell it, email me

I'll take care of your roach
