How much money do you spend annually on anime/manga and
anime/manga related merchandise (not incl. trips to conventions
et al but incl. movie tickets)? Is it:

A) less than $100 - a causal fan

B) $101-300 - an otaku

c) more than $300 - call 1-800-addicts

Ciao.

$300 Anually wouldn't be very much. I know for a fact I spend over $1k a year
on Anime.. maybe around $300 a month. But I'm not an anime elitest. I buy
lots of DVD's and I have 6 wallscrolls, 3 issues of aamegamisama import
manga. Various Darkhorse and Viz manga. Also a Unit 01 action figure and
Morningstar cold cast. But I would put money on it that many more people
spend tons more.

$300 is a bit low. Can't get much for that per year.

Not enough categories! I'm afraid to count up what I've spent
on anime/manga even this year so far. $300 would be a small
portion...

$300 a year would pay for a total of one tape per month. Hardly enough to
feed a fix. $300 per _month_ might indicate a problem...

That's about a tape a month, really. I get at least two tapes per month,
and that's not including manga, model kits, and the like...

I've spent probably about $400 this year on anime so far, and I consider
that a modest amount. An income of about $20 a week kind of puts a cap on
anime spending...

I'm Definately a C. I've been known to buy over $100 in anime tapes/dvds

Exactly. $5000 is category c but doesn't do justice to the rating.
These quarter scale resin cast kits don't come cheap!

Crap, man... I spend more than that *a month* sometimes (I usually get
4 or 5 titles a month - sometimes more, and I just ordered the 6 DVD
AMG TV series from CD Japan - and imports ain't cheap, y'know... That
alone with shipping and handling fees is about $400).

Hobbies are expensive. At least it ain't golf.

You're kidding right? I certianly haven't seen that much anime compared
to most people around here -- but I spent almost $300 alone on two CD
box sets.

Well I've got way over $300 worth of DVDs this year, but actually only spent
around $50 thanks to online discounts(though out of pocket $ will go up
once I get the UY box set) so how does that fit in?

Uh-oh, let's see.
$95 for Ultimate Techi DVD collection & Fedex Next Day
$30 for "Tenchi in Love"
$18 each for DBZ's latest 2 tapes
$280 for 13 1/100 scale Gundam Wing model kits shipped fron Japan
Not to mention the over $500 I've spent on Pokemon for my daughter and over
$200 in Sailor Moon things.

Hmmmmm. What's that help number again?

BTW, what does "Otaku" mean? I've seen the term used many times in various
anime newsgroups but I've never caught a definition of it's meaning.

Thanks

Hell, I spend $300-400 A MONTH on DVDs - and some lingering VHS buys (not
many of those).

I don't have the time to mess with all the coupon schemes, and most of them
are with vendors I wouldn't consider using. I preorder with Express.com.

For July:
$245 in retail DVD, UY, Nadia and City Hunter =~$400 total.
Is $2500 a year excessive?

In Japan it means someone who's *really* obsessed with something...but to a lot
of Americans it just means "anime fan," or perhaps "pretty devoted anime fan."

Well getting the MKR and Ranma 1/2 sets for $0 made getting the UY set a
little easier.
Hmm that reminds me I got a $5 express.com coupon to use.

I've probably already spent $300 this year, and I'm a Po' Boy right now.
If I had a well-paying job, I'm sure I would be spending over $1000-a-year
easily.

Let me break it down...

-$100 worth of Cowboy Bebop
-$100 worth of Outlaw Star
-$50 or so worth of Lain
-$180 for a DVD player
-$40 worth of Excel Saga manga
-$40 worth of Trigun manga
-$50 worth of Maison Ikkoku manga
-$50 worth of Tenchi manga
-$50 worth of Ranma manga
-$30 worth of Blade of the Immortal manga
-$15 for YUA manga
-$30 for OMG manga
-$100 worth of import CDs

Plus a bunch of miscellaneous stuff, like Castle of Cagliostro, the
Tenchi DVD box, and three Trigun DVDs (once the next one ships. ;p) And
about $50 a year each for Animerica and Animerica Extra, now with Super
Manga Blast and the occasional issue of Pulp.

That's scrimping, for me. Last year, Slayers Next plus Escaflowne plus
Saber Marionette plus the J Again box plus Tylor plus KOR plus a whole
load of miscellaneous stuff, and that's just anime (probably at least
another $300 on translated manga and $200 worth of art books alone).

The reason? I quit my old job in January, did part-time tax work in
February, and hung out as an unemployed student through April. ;p When
you've got income, you can afford anime...

You may realize you've gone over the edge when you spend $400 on
imports at a pop... on top of the usual domestic purchases (series in
more or less monthly release I'm collecting, like Tenchi Universe,
Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, etc.).

Heck, I've got about 6 or 7 DVDs on my shelf I bought a while back
that I haven't even gotten around to watching yet.

(It's a good thing I have a job good enough to support
this... Otherwise - ouch.)

Get to know Perl well (and maybe some databasing as well) and a good


knowledge of Unix administration and get into the web development /
sysadmin field... that's what I did. (Although if you *really* want
to be a sysadmin, you may need to have your head checked ^_^;;)

(It's funny... there's some sort of correlation with that - I know two
web developers personally that are anime fans, as well as two other
sysadmins that are too. And then there's Rob Kelk, the newsadmin, and
MegaZone the web developer/engineer/whathaveyou.)

"Otaku" is the polite Japanese word for "house" (compare to English,
"residence").

An "otaku" is a fan who is pretty much housebound by his or her
addiction to a hobby. More generally, a "serious" fan (eg, a
"Trekkie"). The term is not quite as perjorative as it used to be.

Until the last year, I spent no more than US $200 a year. There just
wasn't enough stuff available that I wanted. (And, man, getting
_legal_ Miyazaki videos from Japan was *way* expensive. Still, you
have to support the artists you admire.)

In the last 18 months I've spent a ludicrous amount of money on anime.
This is not all that surprising, since, for DVD enthusiasts like
myself, there are *decades* of worthwhile material to collect.
(*Finally* I have CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO!!! Hoodyhoo!)

I have tried to limit myself to US $200 a month, but admit I don't
count box sets against this total (which, of course, can easily double
the expense) (but, darn it, how could I *not* get the FUSHIGI YUUGI
Shizuka box?!)

I recently found that I own more anime than live action films. I think
this is referred to, technically, as "passing the Point of No Return."

Luckily, I'm one of those UNIX/Web developer/code fu types that one of
the other posters referred to, so the money isn't really an issue for
me.

Could be worse. I could own a boat.

Actually... [looks at video shelf]... I, um, don't own anything
live-action...

(Although I'm seriously thinking about buying some Kurosawa films.)

More than $300, easy. I spend a third of that on one CD Japan order -_-()

Most of what I buy is from internet orders. Artbooks, import CDs and DVDs,
and sometimes tapes.

Hah, only AMG? I've bough CCS, Escaflowne, Maison Ikkoku, You're

Either that or you'll wish you were doing computers instead. :/

I quit my sys admin job and worked as an electrician for 3 months
before I went back to being a sys admin. Electrician paid 3 times
better, but it wasn't worth the hassle. :)

And don't forget pre-orders! They are *such a good deal*. How can
one pass up $11 or more savings on a single DVD just for ordering
it way in advance?

I keep a binder just for the stuff I've pre-ordered. UY was the
*ultimate* pre-order so far. But I really want to see YUA TV.

For a long time money hasn't been a problem -- DINK -- but I've
found a new way to spend it: remodeling the house. Ouch! It's
just as good as a boat.

I recommend Yojimbo.

Only $300? Man, that's only 12 DVDs or so at MSRP. One per
month. That's nothing in the slightest, really. Now, those that I'm
scared of are the ones who spend upwards of the cost of a new Lexus each
year on their "hobby"...

For me, however, I'd estimate about $750 per year.

I just spent $200 buying a bunch of fansubs from a friend. Thats in
addition to the oher $800 or so I've spent this year. I get to spend $300
in anime in a MONTH, not per year. If I could only spend $300 a year on
anime I'd go insane(although I would have a lot space in my room...I need
to get my own place jyst to hold my anime collection).

Upon checking my order history at Express.com when I was placing a new
order the other day, I was almost floored by how much I had spent
there *alone*...

$850+ since the beginning of June! I gotta quit doing that.

That's obviously not counting CD Japan, and AX wasn't cheap
either... But it was fun, so I don't care.

At least I have a decent job...
