Though I voted "I never ever sell anything no matter how much I hate it", it would be more appropriate to say "I never buy anything unless I truly love it" because I'm really short on money and space so I have to handpick anything I want to buy. This is only talking about manga, since I don't own any DVD, though the same rules apply to the very few pirated DVD's I do own, that's how limited my space is.

So far the only thing I've ever sold was an unopened Witch Hunter Robin I realized I was never going to watch. I have a figure or two I'm idly considering selling, but that's mostly because I'm unsure I'll be able to afford to complete the collection. That I've taken to sellingdonating my precious bodily fluid might make it possible, though(there's also been a rumor of a raise going around my workplace, which if it pans out will see the rest preordered posthaste).

Never traded or sold anything. I'd be more inclined to give the few things that I didn't like away, but I sincerely doubt that the few people that like anime in my circle of friends would even want it. Not to mention that I've had those dvds for years so even if they would like it, it would probably be pretty difficult to find the remaining dvds at a reasonable price.

There's really only one thing (well, 4 dvds) that I would love to find a new home for, because I ended up buying the British release instead. There was a gap of a year and a half between dvd 4 and 5 Shocked and after waiting half a year, I eventually decided not to wait any longer.

If I really don't want something I give it to a relative or friend who likes it.

I've yet to sell or trade anything, but that's probably due more to being new to the collecting game then an unwillingness to do so. My collection at this point is pretty small and only contains things I've really enjoyed save for a couple items that were blind-bought.

I sometimes wonder why I buy Anime. Many of my favorites can't be purchased in a good bundle on Blu-ray, and I am such a novice at buying it online (since it's not readily available in stores near where I live), half the time I don't end up getting what I thought I was getting. *backa* *backa!*

It's too bad these companies that pick up selling rights don't go to a model where you can order all but limited editions online and then just stamp one out at the time it's ordered.

I would seriously fill out my collection if it could be so easy!

From a personal standpoint, I never sell anything from my collection. Once an item enters it, it's in there for good! Cool
