Speaking of not enough shelves, I'm remedying that problem in my home right now, as we speak - I'm in the process of constructing two more 36" x 78" media shelves from scratch for my growing anime collection.
As someone who builds their own shelves from solid wood great to see this. (not made to this standard though).

Doing the math it would cost in the region of £200 to go the DIY route using MDF so IKEA isn't really that much more expensive for me.
I seem to recall I got mine from B&Q - 5 long boards in a pack for about £20-£25. Might be off on the pricing but reasonable sure it was that ball park. Bought 2 for double that. Cut as required. Great because the depth is perfect for BD/DVD and shelf height totally customizeable.

Calculations were based on shelves deep enough to accommodate two rows per shelf (30cm)

Relatively inexpensive to build standard depth shelving but more expensive when dealing with anything over 6x1

I also have a blog post here in case the images go missing.

This update has been delayed for way too long. It's been around 16 months since my last major complete collection update, and I got way more than I had anticipated. Between the months that had passed I finished my third & final year of University and managed to get certain items once I returned home.

If you like a quick recap on the previous update, see the links above. Nevertheless, here is my 6th collection update. There's a lot of new additions this time around and some areas weren't updated so I omitted them out (retro games and consoles for example).

View 1:



At the top of my book shelf are a couple boxes and some of the larger-sized books. The newest additions for this area is the Final Fantasy XV Strategy Guide Hardcover, Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter Exclusive Artbook, and the third compendium volume of The Walking Dead comic book.

View 2:



For the main book shelf I had re-arranged a lot of the rows as more items were purchased. For the first row (from top to bottom) we have Sentai Filmworks as well as one Nozomi/Rightstuf title and the Visual Novels, plus the collector's edition of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash!

For Sentai Filmworks these are all of the premium limited edition sets that I have acquired so far. I won't be collecting all of them as the prices are debatable and they can take up a lot of space. Since the last update we have some new additions; Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! Heart Throb, and Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls. I got very lucky with Monster Musume because it actually went out of print before it even got released so I was happy to order it for a solid price thanks to WOW HD.

For the visual novels the only new addition is Suda51's The Silver Case, which I did play via the PlayStation 4 version and I really enjoyed it. There's a sequel coming in 2018 called The 25th Ward which I also plan to get whenever possible.

On the second row we have Aniplex of America. Surprisingly I actually added some more titles to this section, despite the currently rate being tedious for most of the months between the last update and present. Monogatari franchise got some new additions enough to slowly catch up - Kabukimonogatari, Otorimonogatari, Onimonogatari, Koimonogatari, Hanamonogatari as well as Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu and Kizumonogatari Part 2: Nekketsu. That's all of Monogatari's Second Season arcs as well as 2/3rd of the Kizumonogatari movie trilogy. Meanwhile I also acquired Nisekoi volumes 3 & 4 and even Sword Art Online Extra Edition which has been out of print for over a year.

And here is where a lot of the new additions went. The third row of the book shelf provides a stack of Funimation limited edition sets. In the previous collections I had them placed under two rows which did take up a lot of space, but in this instance I had to place one row in front of the other. There were only a couple new additions for Funimation limited edition-wise; Assassination Classroom Season 1 from Funimation UK, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Danganronpa the Animation, High School DxD BorN, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, OVERLORD from Funimation UK and Rage of Bahamut: Genesis from Funimation UK. Outside of the limited edition sets I also have the second half for Assassination Classroom, Eureka Seven, Eureka Seven AO, and Space Dandy inside the respective boxes of the first half.

Next up on the fourth row is Anime Limited. Oh wow this certainly grew a lot compared to the last update. So many titles were acquired thanks to a combination of sales/bargains, MCM Comic Con, and early bird pre-orders. The new additions are as follows from the back part of the row; Ajin: Demi-Human Season 1, Aldnoah Zero Season 1, The Anthem of the Heart, Belladonna of Sadness, Blood Blockade Battlefront, Blood Lad, The Case of Hana & Alice, Claymore, Eden of the East, ERASED Part 1, Evangelion: 1.11 You Are (not) Alone, Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya Season 1, Free! Eternal Summer, Full Metal Panic! Seasons 1-3, Fuse: Memoirs of a Hunter Girl, Genius Party & Genius Party Beyond, Gundam Reconguista in G, Hyouka Part 1, Mai Mai Miracle, Mobile Suit Gundam Movie Trilogy, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam Parts 1-2, and Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ Part 1.

On the front part of the row; Noein ~to your other self~, Ouran High School Host Club, Outlaw Star, Persona 3 the Movies 1-4, The Place Promised in Our Early Days/Voices of a Distant Star, Prison School, Psychic School Wars, Psycho-Pass 2, Psycho-Pass: The Movie, Samurai Flamenco Part 2, A Silent Voice, Sword Art Online II Parts 2-4, Sword of the Stranger, The Tatami Galaxy, Tokyo ESP, Tokyo Marble Chocolate, Your Lie in April Parts 1-2, and Your Name.

So yeah there's a lot. In fact there are actually three more titles incoming but there were shipment delays.

View 4:



For the last two rows of the book shelf I have a variety of titles. On the fifth row we have Universal Pictures, MVM, Studio Canal, Anchor Bay, Beez, Sony, Funimation UK, Eureka, Pied Piper, Bandai Visual/Honneamise, Viz Media, and Funimation US.

The newest additions for Universal Pictures is pretty much the rest of the anime titles they released in neat collector's edition sets; The Heroic Legend of Arslan Parts 1-2, and Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya. For MVM I decided to acquire the UK Blu-ray versions for Berserk (1997), Love Live! Seasons 1 & 2, and Serial Experiments Lain. Studio Canal adds The Tale of the Princess Kaguya and The Wind Rises. All four of Funimation UK are new to the list; Absolute Duo, Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!!, Mikagura School Suite, and No-Rin. Eureka Entertainment's release of Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis is a new addition also. I even managed to acquire the out of print FREEDOM box set for the Bandai Visual/Honneamise collection.

On the sixth row of the shelf we have NIS America, the Ultimate Edition sets for Anime Limited, and the Asian Cinema collection. Funimation's Darker Than Black premium edition is also there on the far right side. The newest addition for this row in terms of anime are Nyaruko: Crawling With Love Season 2 from NIS America and The Vision of Escaflowne from Anime Limited. For the Asian live-action cinema collection the new additions are The Handmaiden from Curzon Artificial Eye and Shin Godzilla from Manga Animatsu.

The PlayStation 4 also saw a massive increase in titles with 41 games already. While most are on the fourth row, I've got some of the titles placed in the second & third rows. New additions for the PS4 collection are as follows from the second row are; Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, and Bioshock: The Collection.

Now we are on the next view which covers PlayStation Vita plus the Vita imports, as well as the rest of the anime from the UK with Manga UK/Animatsu and Warner Bros.

PlayStation Vita is at its end, let's be honest about that, but the games released for it have been pretty solid and I've managed to acquire a lot since the last update. The new additions included are; Demon Gaze, Everybody's Golf, Freedom Wars, Gal*Gun: Double Peace, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, Killzone Mercenary, Persona 4 Dancing All Night, Soul Sacrifice, Superbeat XONIC, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni-, Ys: Memories of Celceta, IA/VT -COLORFUL- and Miracle Girls Festival [ミラクルガールズフェスティバル]. I also managed to acquire the PlayStation TV which was going up in price and selling out fast.

Only a couple titles have joined the Manga Animatsu collection with Akira (2016 re-release), Beyond the Boundary -I'll Be Here-, Blue Exorcist Parts 1 & 2, and In This Corner of the World.

View 8:



For this view we have the mini shelf that's on top of another mini-shelf. Here is all of the Blu-ray sized standard edition sets for Funimation and Sentai Filmworks mixed in together. There's also my CDs underneath with the boxes for the limited edition games.

The new additions of the Funimation sets are mostly from the Anime Classics line with Black Butler Season 1, Deadman Wonderland, Sekirei/Sekirei: Pure Engagement, Spice & Wolf Seasons 1 & 2, and Steins;Gate. The new additions of the Sentai Filmworks sets are Amagami SS, Amagami SS+, and Children Who Chase Lost Voices. The DVD cases for Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? and Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls which have Blu-ray discs are included in this shelf as their limited edition boxes are rather complex to open.

In the CD pile I also acquired some Japanese imports with Susumu Hirasawa's Ash Crow album, the Garden of Sinners soundtrack, and Monogatari's Utamonogatari OP/ED collection.

View 9:




Here we have my books - manga and light novels to be exact. Not much as been made with this unfortunately due to massive backlog of anime to acquire. I did get some since the last update though.

For manga we have the first volume of BLAME! from Vertical and all four volumes of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 2: Battle Tendency from Viz Media. For the light novels we have Goblin Slayer novel 1, Bakemonogatari novel 1, and the first two novel volumes of OVERLORD.

View 10:



And here we have the manga box sets. There's only one new addition this time and that's the third One Piece box set containing volumes 47-70 which covers the arcs Thriller Bark all the way to the introduction of Dressrosa.

View 11:



Last but not least an update on the Nintendo 3DS collection. I managed to acquire two more titles before they went out of print with Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX and Tales of the Abyss.

Here's my main shelf in one photo:



So yeah, that's pretty much it.

Here are my games as well if we are posting them lol ;) you can't see all of them because of the sliding door in the way.

P.s. each shelf has two rows (except the bottom shelf), so two small boxes and two large boxes (not all full yet)

So, your first anime just 18 months ago, and now you got all that - isn't it amazing how fast anime can replicate in such a short period of time? They're more frisky than even rabbits or mice, it seems... :eek:
Definitely more frisky. I'm obsessed with collecting all dubbed anime! Damn it's hard to keep up
