Post a photo of your entire anime collection!

It's been over a year since my last collection photo, so I thought I'd make an update. It has grown since last year, but I estimate at least 100 titles have been received and sold in the meantime, can't always like blind buys 🤷‍♂️

I would wait for my order of Bunny Girl Senpai to come, but it might arrive in two weeks or so (the one clear case is supposed to represent it lol).

Yes, I display "Why the Hell Are You Here, Teacher?!" without the slip.

Never really posted here before but I have been into collecting anime for quite a while now, when I was younger, I had a decent DVD collection but this was before I made the jump to Blu Ray and I sold off most of that, that was a while ago now though.
For the last three years I have been properly collecting but I have to work with a budget because Uni student.

There is so much I want to add to the collection but I am happy with what I've accumulated so far over the past few years or so.

I do have Violet Evergarden, Demon Slayer and The Promised Neverland on pre-order also.

Shared this on Blu-Ray.com and figure I'd do it here too since I haven't done so for a few years. I was going to wait until I got some more shelves as alot is stored in a cupboard at the moment sadly but I just got the urge to do this anyway. Camera work/quality could be better but you can hopefully still see 95% of what is there.

I sort stuff via genre/catergories and then alphabetically. So it all makes sense to me at least lol

Abit awkward to take photos of these Artbox sets as the shelves they are on are in a cupboard space so. Also the long black thin set is Darker Than Black on BD in the stupid 'premium' packaging, the green set is a similar somewhat stupid 'premium' version of Black Lagoon. Both from Funimation.

And then into another cupboard where I store stuff I simply don't have shelf space for at the moment.

And that is my Anime collection :)

Here's a blog version in case the images go missing.

Another year, another complete collection update. New shelf and additional shelf rows, plus the glass shelf and the PlayStation collection from the flat make a return. I should clarify that this collection spans at least 8 years.

The photos are divided into different sections and I have spoiler-tagged them (for better post viewing pace and avoid loading/slowdown issues for those who have weaker PCs or internet).

I changed the order of the shelves a fair bit so we are starting with Anime Limited first and foremost. This is the distributor where more than half of the new anime went towards because I love owning their sets.

I don’t collect every single Anime Limited CE but that being said, a majority of their titles are the ones I generally go for anyway. The Screen Anime membership also helped with the savings so that was handy.

So last year, Manga was bought by Funimation and since then more and more Funimation (and also some Crunchyroll licenses that were part of that defunct partnership years ago) titles were slowly being released. Because importing is expensive enough as it is, I decided to make use of Manga’s UK releases whenever possible.

I also acquired a bunch of limited editions which are mainly UK variations of Funimation releases so that part is saved for the other section below.
  • Black Clover Season 1
  • Dr. STONE Season 1 Part 1
  • I Want to Eat Your Pancreas
  • My Hero Academia Season 1
  • My Hero Academia Season 2
  • My Hero Academia the Movie: Heroes Rising
  • My Hero Academia the Movie: Two Heroes
  • RADIANT Season 1 Part 1
  • Saga of Tanya the Evil
  • Soul Eater
  • Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199
  • That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 1 Part 1

Everyone’s most hated distributor (well saying that, seems the hate is now towards Funimation these days), but even though their prices are not cheap the sets themselves are pretty nice.

As I have mentioned in recent years I have changed my stance in terms of what I acquire from the distributor for funding reasons. It’s mainly going to be used for the Fate and Monogatari franchise now, unless another big series steps in to grab my interest to the max.

My plan was to grab the remainder of Monogatari during 2020, but I had some funding issues plus the uncertainty of the currency rate meant a delay for the last two sets I needed.
  • Koyomimonogatari
  • Owarimonogatari Volume 1
  • Owarimonogatari Volume 2

Sentai, also known as Sentai Filmworks, is a distributor that I am pretty much up-to-date with in terms of their special editions, especially as MVM is offering UK variants. That being said, much like Aniplex, I plan to keep the DanMachi franchise consistent with Sentai for the collection so I plan to try and grab the second season and the film next year if I can.

No new items this time around which is an odd change of pace. Then again the sales from this distributor are not accessible to UK customers.

Hey look it’s MVM. This was a distributor that years ago I initially blacklisted from my collection due to their QC issues and packaging, but over time they have managed to slowly make their way back up to the ranks of being worth checking out. The packaging can still be messy at times but it’s nowhere near as bad as their older sets. Despite my stance on the distributor in the past, I will be supporting them more into 2021 whenever I can.

Not many new additions in terms of their special editions but I did go for their sale for once so we have some more regular sets also.

The new MVM Collector’s Edition additions are:
  • Mysteria Friends
  • Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai
The new MVM regular Blu-ray additions are:
  • The Eccentric Family Season 1
  • Girlish Number
  • Love and Lies
  • Love, Election and Chocolate
  • Photo Kano
  • Seven Mortal Sins

Years ago I used to try and grab every Funimation limited edition I could get but eventually I got out of that mental idea and finally just chose the titles that I want to own personally. The currency rate being messy in recent years also helped with the decision and eventually Manga started to bring these sets to the UK so that was helpful.

There’s nothing new in terms of the regular US versions from Funimation, so this update is mainly for the limited editions I managed to acquire as well as a few Funimation UK titles that managed to make it to the collection before they were fully discontinued.

The new Funimation Limited Edition additions are:
  • Attack on Titan: Junior High
  • Freezing
  • Freezing Vibration
  • The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 1
  • That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 1 Part 2
The new Manga Entertainment Limited Edition additions are:
  • ARIFURETA: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest Season 1
  • Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 1
  • Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2
  • Cautious Hero: The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious
  • Dr. STONE Season 1 Part 2
  • RADIANT Season 1 Part 2
  • The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 1 Part 1
  • The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 1 Part 2
  • SSSS.GRIDMAN
  • Wise Man’s Grandchild
  • ZOMBIE LAND SAGA
The new Funimation UK additions are:
  • Barakamon
  • Heavy Object Part 1
  • Heavy Object Part 2
  • Shomin Sample
  • Yurikuma Arashi

In this section we have some anime that I bought over the years. The Bandai Visual & Honneamise titles as well as Bandai Visual Japan, Pied Piper and NIS America’s Premium DVD-sized sets. Nothing new was added for these publishers.

I was also having space issues so we have the PlayStation Vita games altogether in this row, with the PlayStation TV device as well. No new Vita games were acquired in 2020 though I did acquire some in 2018 & 2019 so I may as well recap them below since I didn’t include them in the previous update.
  • Bullet Girls (バレットガールズ)
  • Corpse Party: Blood Drive
  • Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart
  • Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sister Generation

Next we have the video games. I somehow managed to place all of my PlayStation games into the last two rows on my main shelves, well I say almost as the Japanese imports are in another section.

I acquired the PlayStation 3 in 2013 and PlayStation 4 in 2016, and while I have mostly finished buying games for the former, the latter I am honestly way behind with as there’s tons of games left to get. There’s plenty more to acquire but many factors are taken into note, such as pricing and availability. I have picked up some western titles over the years but at the moment the main focus is getting the Japanese games first.

But yeah, since then I have acquired over 100 PS3 games and over 115 PS4 games for these two consoles. As the previous update did not cover both consoles, this update will mention the titles I have acquired since the 6th update post. There’s a lot.

At the bottom row of my glass shelf are the rest of my PlayStation 3 and 4 games, which is basically the Japanese imports. I have slowed down on my import haul due to various factors (like more games getting localised releases) but there are a couple more to get in the future. I didn’t acquire any in 2020 but there were a few PS4 imports in 2019.

With the main shelves covered, the next part I want to cover are the titles included inside the glass shelf. This shelf has been with my collection since the beginning and it works well for the regular Blu-rays like my Asian Cinema collection. I managed to get a lot of Japanese and Hong Kong films as well as a couple Korean films this year and I hope to maintain that momentum into 2021. The biggest difference is that 88 Films joins the collection and many out of print Third Window Films releases were able to join also.

There’s also a couple misc. anime, primarily the Studio Canal Ghibli titles, Universal Pictures titles, Viz Media titles, Sony Pictures titles and Warner Bros titles, plus the Twilight Time release of Harlock: Space Pirate. This batch has nothing new added to them.

Next we are now on the old bookshelf which, as you may have guessed, is dedicated to the books for the most part. The first few rows have manga from publishers Dark Horse, Kodansha Comics, Square Enix, Yen Press and Viz Media.

Like the Gundam in the main shelves, I am also offering a section dedicated to Junji Ito manga because it makes sense to have them all placed together rather than spread out with the Viz titles.

The big focus was primarily towards Seven Seas & Ghost Ship because they don’t provide better survival rates in terms of stock compared to the other distributors. I have been doing my best but their prices are also more expensive than Viz and Yen etc.

The Viz media box sets are also placed throughout my room, though there’s nothing new added to that part. I am hoping Viz does release a fourth One Piece box set soon.

The new Ghost Ship & Seven Seas manga additions are:
  • Destiny Lovers – Vol. 1
  • Monster Musume – Vol. 4-6
  • Plus-Sized Elf – Vol. 1-5
  • World’s End Harem – Vol. 1-7
  • World’s End Harem: Fantasia – Vol. 1
  • Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs – Vol. 4-8
The new Yen Press manga additions are:
  • Interspecies Reviewers – Vol. 1
The new Viz manga additions are:
  • Junji Ito’s No Longer Human
JtXTMKLh.jpg


Next we have the light novels. This section is a bit of a messy one because I acquired over the years a number of series with only their first volumes, with the exception of ARIFURETA last year. This year I have managed to get a few more volumes than the usual.

The only major changes this time has been with both Seven Seas and Yen Press, as I’ve put the J-Novel Club and Monogatari Vertical stuff on-hold for now.

The new Seven Seas light novel additions are:
  • How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom – Vol. 2-3
  • Monster Girl Doctor – Vol. 1-3
The new Yen On light novel additions are:
  • Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks? – Vol. 1
  • The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious – Vol. 2
  • High School DxD – Vol. 1
  • Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? – Vol. 2
  • KonoSuba: God’s Blessing in this Wonderful World! – Vol. 2
  • That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime – Vol. 1

The final part of my collection is the small selection of physical visual novels for PC, as well as a couple anime sets that were sized differently to where they could not fit with the others. The Perfect Blue Ultimate Edition for instance is larger than the NIS America A3-sized sets so this was the only suitable slot at the moment. There’s nothing new with these parts.

Love your collection! Your making me pine for my old video game collection looking at some of your stuff. I used to own alot of games but I sold them all as I just wasn't playing them. I might rebuild parts of that collection someday, though the prices of retro gaming thanks to YouTube makes me less keen.

Thanks! Video game collecting is pretty great when you mainly focus on regular editions. I'm not a fan of Limited Run Games due to their high prices and bad timings, though thankfully a game included under their label can still get a physical release later depending on the publisher (Ys Origin for instance got a release in Europe surprisingly).

I do agree that retro games have gotten more expensive but if I were to go into retro collecting it's mainly going to be from Japan since they handle their stuff with care. The Japanese PS3 collection I have is almost at a perfect position as there's still a few more games I want to get for the console, while the Japanese PS4 collection only has a few due to most being localised already. One area I would love to explore is the Japanese PS2 catalogue because it's large and has a ton of intriguing games like Critical Velocity (Ridge Racer spin-off, ThorHighHeels has a great video covering this game), Super Galdelic Hour (imagine Dead or Alive Xtreme making a Mario Party game published by Enix), and of course the anime IPs like Berserk, Blood+ (Suda51 version), Gantz, GODANNAR, Ikkitousen and Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple.

My tiny collection, compared to some here it's a drop in the ocean!

I have been enjoying (probably too much) anime since all the lockdown stuff kicked in, I watched Bleach, Naruto, Deathnote over a decade ago, but for some reason I then didn't really watch anything until 2020. As you can imagine I have a lot of catching up to do.

This collection started life in November of 2020, my goals with this are:
  • Not to get too big, I will mainly buy shows I really liked, rather than just OK ones.
  • I will focus on CE's, collections, seasons, I don't really want to get parts if I can avoid it.
  • Support the UK industry, I am not importing from other regions in general.
  • I don't want to freeload everything, so I tend to watch what I want by other means, and then if I like it I'll buy it (if it's available).
What the anime industry does is great and I want to support it a bit, even if it's not much, I figure this is better than paying a sub to someone like Crunchyroll, and I can support the specific shows I like more.

My copy of Gurren Lagann is still in flight, I have pre-orders for RE:Zero S1 CE and Fate UBW CE's in process as well when they come out.

And yes, that is a framed picture of a badger, my mum gave it to me as a house warming present when I bought my first house :)

It has only been around four months since my last post, but there has been some major changes in the collection.
7A094B1F-429A-438C-97CD-D8D0243BE6A5.jpeg

Biggest change is probably no more Dragon Ball related stuff, no more Sailor Moon or Ranma. I‘ve tried to keep it to US only, but Rascal Does Not Dream (series and movie) are UK and AU releases, might change them over to the US Aniplex releases in the future.

I need quick advice from a experienced collector on storing a collection on a shelf. I usually have all of my Anime BD/DVD stored in large cardboard boxes in sections (Like a bento box 🍱)

Just last month or 2 I've started to place some of the collection on shelf. Usually I arrange Game/Blu-ray cases vertical but this time around I opted for horizontal.

Polish_20210207_142550103.jpg

My question which is the most storage efficient? Additionally, does placing vertical damage the cases as well? I stacked from heavy (bottom) to light (top).

What do you guys think? I'm aiming for more storage and less case damage here 😅🔫

Personally I would never store titles that way.
I would just add more shelves, especially if your collection continues to grow.

I agree, usually I don't. However I'm trying to reduce the overall collection BIG time. Though will the vertical layout damage the cases or is it safe you reckon? Should I perhaps keep the CEs vertical and standard BD as is?

Thought I'd ask a professional collector like yourself as you've been in the game a long time now 😁

Indeed, vertical storage is bad as all the weight from the top is put onto whatever is at the bottom. It's fine for temporary storage or if they are seperated into small piles but you risk damage in the long term.

I see, that would make sense. I should rearrange it right away as I'd not want to take the risk.

Big thanks to you and @Denny Fisher for the advice. You both have my humblest gratitude 🙌

Decided to re-arrange my collection since I had a stack of new blu-rays waiting to be sorted. I've put them in alphabetical order (mostly), but I think this will change at some point in the future. I wish I had shelves to display them but a cupboard will have to do, I suppose it keeps the sunlight away. Each shelf is doubled up.
