About this blog

I’ve decided to set this up mostly as a place for me to keep track of my various otaku adventures, though it has also evolved into including some of my more general interests. Photos from trips, events, and real life ramblings have been known to show up. I originally started over at Windows Live Spaces and moved to WordPress a few months later.

About me…

There really isn’t too much to tell about me. I could probably say I started my career as an anime fan back in 1999 or 2000, when I caught a show on Cartoon Network called Sailor Moon. Yep, I’ll freely admit, my first taste of anime was the original DiC dub of Sailor Moon. From there, I moved on to other series, like Tenchi Muyo! and classics like Ninja Scroll and Ghost in the Shell. I fell off for a bit when I entered college, but rekindled the obsession with Aa! Megami-sama. It’s been a downward spiral since then, getting into manga, DVDs, figures, and Dollfies. In particular, I blame that last item on Danny Choo, though he exasperated much of my more recent figure acquisitions.

In the real world, I work for a little Redmond-based software company called Microsoft managing enterprise customers. Even though I’m based in Charlotte, NC, I love being a proponent for my company’s products (where credit is due, or lacking), so product ramblings will occasionally sneak in here.

About my collection…

I’ve amassed quite the amount of stuff in the past years. Almost every type of item has wound up in my collection, from DVDs and manga to figures and dolls. I know I said I’d never put down the money to buy one, but here I am with lots… ^.^;;

I’ve also been featured in Kotobukiya’s Otacool publication, including an image on the cover and a two page spread on the inside! Sadly, I think my cat is in it more than me…

That’s really about it. Feel free to browse and leave comments. I’d love to hear from you! If you prefer email, I can be reached via ed@howdoyoufigure.net.

    Hello,

    I am impressed with your collection so contacted you from your website.

    We work for a small Japanese company. We are trying to create a website to
    introduce Japanese culture and products so that people in the world will know
    how wonderful Japanese culture is.

    For our first step, we would like to introduce Japanese OTAKU culture, but we
    are not sure about how foreigners are attracted by the OTAKU culture.

    Would you please help us out by answering the following questions?
    If you answer our questions, we will be happy with giving you some goods of
    your favorite anime characters.

    1. How do you get information about Otaku-related info?
    2. How do you get Otaku-related products such as DVDs, figures, or comic books?
    3. What kind of Otaku-related things do you think is hard to get?
    4. Are you interested in the shopping site where you can get Otaku-related
    stuff if it is available?

    We are looking forward to hearing from you and tell us your favorite anime characters.

    By the way, “Wonder Festival 2011[Winter]” an attractive event of formative design will be
