REASON

I enjoy looking at other people's collections and sharing my own. Probably would not have started at all if I had never seen other doujin sites (guess this is either good or bad depending on perspective, haha). It also has a few practical purposes, such as tracking collection size, estimating costs, preventing the purchase of duplicates, providing a list of circles to check for Comiket, and sating my more obsessive compulsive urges.

Site was started circa 2004/2005 when the collection was still in its infancy (around 20 books).

WEBMISTRESS

Gamer, future nurse, etc.

LAYOUT

Version 3.0 ~ ashes of dreams
The current and final layout for the site (until i get bored, anyway). Header pending.

Version 2.5 ~ minimalism
A cleaner version of 2.0 with a more streamlined look and coding. Maybe the next version will actually incorporate a graphic of some sort, lol.

Version 2.0 ~ Dollars
Colours inspired by the Dollars chat room from Durarara!


Version 1.0 ~ Devil x Death -Yusuke/Botan-
The first layout. Ugly but loved how I coloured that scan of Yusuke and Botan.

COLLECTION STATS

Some stats on my collection. Another example of my strange obsession for listed data and bullet points. :P

Collecting Since: Early 2005/2004
Collection Size: almost 1000
Physical Collection Size: 600-ish (after sales). hoping to cut down to 400.
Average Price: $20-$50 each x_X (early days); $10-$40 (present)
Overall Cost: guessing $3500~$5000-ish with recycled sale funds
Most Expensive: $70~$80 for Fufu Enman (Yu Yu Hakusho) on eBay.
Most Expensive Fandoms: Guilty Gear, Reborn!, Hakuouki, Gundam SEED (early eBay days, most cost $30 ;-;)
First doujinshi: Forgot. Going off eBay feedback, it is most likely Aer2 (FFVII).
First fandom: Final Fantasy VII?
Would like to collect: Nothing. Planning to stop seriously collecting soon. Hoping no new fandoms catch my interest. XD
