Ugh I am so jealous of that collection. The shelves themselves are great. But man oh man, so much anime.
This evening I had just put all my anime DVDs onto my new IKEA shelves and I only filled up one shelf. Somehow, my collection had looked so big when it was on three smaller shelves, but putting it all onto one bigger shelf makes the collection look so tiny. But now, after looking at Lynn's collection, my collection now feels ultra tiny.
I'll just console myself with the fact that I'm getting 7 series coming in the mail thanks to TRSI Media Blasters sale, and the fact that a small chunk of my collection is living on my boyfriends shelves.

Thanks

Eheh, sorry man. This is what I get for making assumptions Confused

Again though, nice collection. Personally, I figure that if purchase the maximum that my budget allows for, I should have the equivalent of another level filled out on your shelf in about a year's time.

Hey, you've made me curious. What do you think it is? I can't make it out. Lynn, maybe you could shed some light? Smile

I've also made another observation. I could be wrong, but it looks like there are no incomplete series on display. I can think of two possibilities.

1) Lynn only buys complete sets once they are all released.

2) The incomplete series are not included in the pictures.

Sailor Moon Stars. The season they never brought over. I would probably foam at the mouth if they ever did though. That would be something to buy sub only. lol.

Considering the time put into this collection though, it could be from Japan.

I could be wrong but thats what it looks like to me.

That is a sailor stars set from eBay when I first started collecting I thought that was the only way to finish the show. 9 times out of 10 I normally standby for the whole set to be released.

It's typical Minnesotan sports luck. Have a great season finish strong, then lose key players to injuries/medical reasons days before the series starts. In the end though, Minnesota didn't really have what it takes this year to win it all, nor does Colorado. Regardless of who won round 1, I didn't think either would be capable of getting to the finals.

What? You don't think Colorado has a chance, what with their great start against the Red Wings?

*shakes a fist at Colorado goaltending*

They better not be starting Theodore again.

I had a totally different take on the care of Makoto. "it's also a little bizarre to see Yuichi hand-feeding her and trying to get her to play with bells. It's almost disturbing in a way, and if coddling a helpless girl doesn't scream “Moe!,” then nothing on this planet ever well"
Having cared for somebody who deteriorated in such a manner, I found it not simply sweet, but a deeply touching act of love. It is hard to describe what its like to watch a person you care for lose their personality and memories. I was glad for the character that the deterioration was mercifully brief.

My beloved Avalanche have made it past the Minnesota Wild, and are now duking it out against the Red Wings. I'm pretty sure my blood pressure goes up a bit every game


You know what they should do? Start Theodore again to see if he gives up another 4 goals. At least he's consistent Wink

You can't say the same for Budaj, I mean cone on, 1 goal? No goals? What kind of crappy consistency is that? I nominate Quenneville for the Jack Adams for his forward thinking.

(Sorry for being completely OT)
