Actually did wanted to have done up this post ages ago but never did had the time do it. Pretty much figured it would be a nice idea to post about my room since many others have done it, why not? ^^;
Welcome to my room… more after the jump!
Firstly, this is pretty much what you see right over at the entrance. Nothing fancy like huge dakimakura (Hug Pillows) hanging from the door or ceiling. Neither is there booby traps and crazy security systems that scan your tongue before you get clearance to enter. Just a plain room like any ordinary person ^^
You can pretty much see my computer and desk on the left, bed on the background and covered guitar wearing an hat(?!). I bet you guys are probably thinking this isn’t an otaku’s room.
Take about 5 steps forward, and you realize my swivel chair pretty much moved itself in ^^;
There are 2 desks. The desk on the right belongs to my dad by he pretty much doesn’t use it at all. I just use it as extra storage space for my notes and handouts.
My room is equipped with 2 computers and a laptop. The desk on the left is where I spend most of my time (kickass 22″ monitor!) while the computer on the right (Win XP Japanese) contains older stuff as I don’t boot it up that often.
If you take a closer look at my laptop, it’s actually running OS X. I made it triple-bootable (Win XP. OS X, Ubuntu) with a lot of hard work involved in tweaking GRUB loader. I can’t do much with OS X for now due the lack of driver supports. Managed to install ethernet and wireless drivers though ^^
Where all the magic happens (No MP used) and ideas get written and published! I actually spend alot of my time here. Much more than my time spent outside.
To the left of the desks is my bookshelf of manga(s), storybooks that I used to read, 2 years worth of national geographic etc. Do ignore the soft toys on top. I’m pretty much a (soft toy) pig lover ^^; For the curious folks, the plastic looking pig is my piggy bank which makes ‘snoring-kind-of-sound’ whenever you insert a coin.
The top-left corner contains the only two gundams I own. A GAT-X303 Aegis and RX-78 Gundam Ver. ONE YEAR WAR. Below them are my Haruhi and Tohsaka Rin resins ^^; Don’t have the equipment to start on them ORZ
Where are my figures then?
They are on the left of my resin kits, where my anime magazine are nicely tucked away.
Contrary to popular belief, I actually don’t own a lot of figures. 8 in total at the moment. Just below them are where my anime merchandise is more or less kept. Newtype USA, Newtype Japan, Megami, Etsu, S & S.S etc. Don’t really purchase most of the magazines except for S & S.S as it features artworks, coloring and drawing techniques, anime development work, interviews with creators etc. The (2005.01 Vol. 56) Megami issue is my first and last ever Megami magazine I would buy. Didn’t knew that there were ero-anime reviews at the back ^^;
2 Guitars and a guitar amplifier which I don’t use anymore. School bag leaning on the side of the bed and my jeans on the carpet. Pretty much just pop them on when I leave for school. Very much convenient. I do get them washed every 2 days or so.
And finally, the place where dreams gets generated and blog posts gets though. But it hasn’t been working very well recently. Unfortunately, I don’t have one of those anime bed sheets and stuff. Would be pretty nice to have one ^^
So you have it, my room in a post. Would I consider myself an Otaku even without all those posters, anime goods? Yes. I used to have anime posters on the walls, but took them down as they were kinda cluttered ^^;
