    MarshmallowpieIl y a 1 mois#79901884Wow, really impressive post! Like even just posting all these photos is impressive, lol. The bookshelf wall really looks good! Cool manga collection, great mix of new and old and all kinds of different genres. I love the Nuko and I didn't even know it existed. The dungeon staircase mat really confused at me first... I was like what are those pointless stairs, and then I thought it was supposed to be a cellphone signal symbol, and it wasn't until I read the text that I realised what it was supposed to be, haha.

    Thank you! That Nuko ITEM #674826 took me over a year of frequent searched to track down! If you're also after it, AmazonJP still has some in stock (I used the proxy Buyee). If you think you want it, I'd recommend getting it sooner than later. It's a bitch to find lol

    And I totally register those stairs as a cellphone signal as well! They are specifically from Dragon Quest, though they aren't in the database (last I checked, anyways). I want to find a nice out of the way place to "hide" them, like an Easter egg in my own home.

    Julia125Il y a 1 mois#79901810I saw you mention somewhere that you were going to post this and was really looking forward to seeing it! And my gosh it looks amazing! The amount of work you put into this definitely paid off! Lack of space definitely makes people get creative but this is a whole new level and super impressive. You have an awesome collection too, I’m really excited for the next tours you’re going to do! If you ever need company then please invite me over X’D

    Thanks so much! I mean, hey, if you're ever in Seattle I'm totally open to meetups. I won't even charge admission lol

    MajesticOtakingIl y a 1 mois#79901784Thank you so much! I think my dogs were more sad because I said the "s" word ("stay"); they don't really care about Shiitake at all lol. And yes, I LOVE puzzles! It's always hard for me to decide if I want to glue it and frame it or not just because it will mean I can't put it together again without buying a second. Luckily the dog one is actually a tight enough fit that I can frame it without gluing it, but I didn't realize that until I'd already glued the cat one underneath it.
    And I don't think the desire to see my bathroom is weird at all. I'm kind of trying to hype it after all lol

    Omg same, I always feel a little bad gluing my puzzles so I just try to have a bunch that I can do over and over, it’s gotten to the point where I’m running out of space for puzzle boxes (as if figure boxes weren’t enough trouble haha). I have this one Japanese Disney puzzle that has the pieces click into place and stay together without glue, I reeeally wish more puzzles would be made that way! But I’ll keep buying them regardless haha.

    TheGreatGordyIl y a 1 mois#79836792You have an awesome room and collection. Kind of a random question, where did you get your couch at?

    Thanks! It's the Ikea Kivik. It has a bunch of different options, and you can even make it into a huge sectional if you have the space. For us, it's the perfect balance between soft and firm!

    CriscokidIl y a 1 mois#79836911Great concept on using the Billy's to divide the room. I just love seeing otaku homes, glad to see yours.

    Otaku home tours are my favorites! I wish more people with their own place would show off how they decorate their entire homes. Splitting up the collection and theming different rooms is so cool to me. For instance, our bedroom is more kawaii themed, the bathroom is camping/forest themed, and the kitchen has some food-related items (including Nendoroids who are eating). My boyfriend's office is still under construction as in addition to the living room redecoration, we also switched the bedroom and office, but he has whole a wall of Re:Zero (mostly Rem) figures!

    I'm always on the lookout for tours so I can get new ideas for how to decorate our home!

    gwendal738-2Il y a 1 mois#79837002Oh gosh, I love your whole setup! At first I thought it was going to be closed off and claustrophobic because of the dark shelves, but as I saw it come together it gave me the impression of being warm and cozy instead! Being surrounded by manga and figures like this is heaven and I hope to be able to have something like this someday...
    Just a question, what frames did you use for your art prints and/or where did you get them? I love the minimalistic, thin black border look. Did you have them custom made? I want to do something similar for my posters too...


    Thank you! We had four of these Billy's prior to purchasing the new ones, so we made sure to measure everything carefully and stage it before dropping the money just so we could be certain it wouldn't feel claustrophobic. We put a couple of months of planning into this to be completely certain we would be happy with it! Plus, it'll make a great backdrop. We've been considering a YouTube channel focused on figures for some time, so if it ever actually happens, then we're all set lol

    As for the frames, almost all of them are pretty much the cheapest ones you can get at Michaels. Here's a link to them! For larger prints, you may have to go with a different brand, though. You should be fine for postcards, though!

    The_UnforgivenIl y a 1 mois#79837023Wow! It seems like your psuedo remodel was quite the undertaking, but it turned out really nice! I've always hated open concept houses (well, at least when multiple people live in the house) for the lack of privacy and separation for smells, sounds, etc, so it's nice to see a fun way to create artificial walls without actually remodeling. It's got a nice modern, clean feel even with that impressively large collection!

    Thank you! While I like open-concept to a degree, I think the main reason is for the adaptability. Creating my own walls lets me manipulate the spaces in a way I like rather than being stuck with whatever the original designer decided on. Being able to customize my space is super important to me! We actually moved into this apartment a year ago specifically because of the adaptability of this living room; our last apartment was bigger and cheaper, but it just didn't suit our needs and belongings.

    galablueIl y a 1 mois#79901069Your manga collection is extremely impressive. I think you did a pretty good job attaching and modifying the billy bookcases. I would be nervous for it to fall over, to be honest, but it seems quite study.

    Thank you! I was mildly worried at first, but it really is pretty stable. I may add an additional "pillar" system in the future to attach it to the ceiling as an additional precaution. There's no such thing as too careful, especially with a curious cat and two small dogs that like to roughhouse.

    Wario54Il y a 1 mois#79901295Wow!! I actually like open concept but I love what you did with the shelves, it’s like a cozy library/living room. It actually looks pretty spacious for being totally surrounded with shelves too. You seriously have such an impressive collection. I didn’t even know 20th Century Boys was getting a new release and now I need it. xP Also nice to see someone else who likes to frame puzzles!! They’re so fun and very satisfying to see up on the wall once completed! The Happy Party Train puzzle especially looks very cool, I freaking love that whole setup you have there haha. And that Shiitake omg. I hope your dogs didn’t feel threatened. Anyway, this was a really fun read! It feels super weird saying this but I‘m interested to see your bathroom haha.
