Invasion of the gashapons




Hi, my name is Racemaniac, and I'm a gashapon addict
*starts crying*

Well, maybe it isn't that bad yet, but it's more or less becoming an issue... Everytime I go to the local anime/manga shop, I seem to return with yet another gashapon (for those not familiar with otaku terminology, it's a small figurine, that's sold in a closed box so you can't see which you buy, and is meant for trading). Right now I've got a total of fifteen gashapons standing behind my keyboard (or  rather in front of my monitors (two), since they're already with so many that the line up is wider than my keyboard.

If you don't recognise them all on the photo: the left six are from Mai Otome (bought because they look pretty good, and even better now i discovered you can undress them), the right 4 are from kujibiki unbalance (the series in the universe of Genshiken (yes, we love that anime)), and the others are from Genshiken itself. I've also got one from amaenaideyo (who came up with that name) lying around somewhere, but it isn't as beautiful as the others(very cheap and plastic look)...

Luckily, being an otaku (who buys this junk) is pretty  rare here in Belgium, so I haven't really got friends yet to trade these gashapons 
with. But their rapid increase in numbers is worries me!, soon I'll run 
out of space to put them, I'll have to start selecting...
Right now, I guess Ihave no choice but to go along with it, and see where Iend up, but just in case, has anyone heard about a gashapon rehab centre?

Well..I don't have Gashapons..but I'm willing to trade that (not so impressove anyway) Saki for some nicely printed pieces of paper which you can use as equity in your everyday life. Read: money. :p
