    650 mangas? respect, that is a lot. I can't imagine that our appreciated anime and manga fan, AngryJellyfish, has even more. I have my doubts at least.

    Not that it's a competition, but a quick count estimates my collection at ~750 (again, I'm not sure on the exact numbers in that huge 3x3 pile) - that's not counting light novels, digital manga (259 volumes bought via Amazon, BookWalker and eManga), and counting all omnibuses as single volumes.

    You are a true boaster AngryJellyfish. But quite rightly in my opinion. Don't know a person who has such a great collection, I will give you that. Do you have enough time to read them anyway?

    Everything on the shelves has been read once, over the course of the last 11 years. Very few have been read twice. :p: I've been a bit slower reading the digital stuff, probably have ~15 volumes unread, but it doesn't make me feel as guilty as a similarly sized pile of paperbacks would. :giggle:

    Very few twice? and you have never thought about to sell those ones? because of your proud being a manga fan, because of having a lot of mangas and sell them off means a great loss for you?

    I don't think I could give up anything from my collection unless forced (apart from some of the dropped series in the drawer, knowing that I'm unlikely to ever see how they end)... at some point, if I end up moving somewhere smaller, I may have to consider that, but only then!

    I see. There is really an affinity to your collection. And I am not surprised. By the way how many anime DVDs do you have and what is the oldest anime in that collection?

    Excuse the state of my room, I've been fighting a losing battle against rain and dust and lack of space for years.

    Big manga bookcase
    Big shelves for big manga.



    Rotating manga bookcase
    Side A



    Side B



    Manga cuboid
    From the front, featuring mini figures from Show by Rock!!



    Width: 3 volumes; depth: 3 volumes; height: ~18 volumes (variable). I don't even remember what's in the centre...



    Homemade manga bookcase
    Featuring 2/3 of my figurine collection, all my plushies and soundtrack CDs, and a couple of mugs (obscured by the sunlight).



    Behind my desk
    Running right from one end to the other, mostly behind my PC, printer and a ton of cables. Here's just a small sample, since they're difficult to access.



    My coasters have seen better days.



    Also including my artbooks.



    Manga drawer
    Where I put the stuff that I'm not currently collecting, or that was dropped by its publisher.



    Anime shelf
    Surprisingly small, compared with my manga. Also featuring my Lost Universe pencil board...



    ...and the rest of my figurines.



    Under the shelf, surprise, more anime~

    IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL :love:

    fancy writing a will and leaving this all to me? in case of an, um, accident occurring... :innocent:

    125, including the Blurays, my one VHS (which I forgot to photograph :p:) and counting the box sets as just one (since I don't fancy moving the piles just to check how many discs are in each one). :giggle:

    The oldest anime there has to be the 1968 Adventures of Horus: Prince of the Sun (or Little Norse Prince to use the official English title)... unless you meant the one I bought first, which was likely the first Ghost in the Shell movie.

    1968. My,my. That is a very old anime. I can't remember that I have watched an one which is as old as yours. Some from the 70s, many from the 80s and the most ones from the 90s.
