Just then, to demonstrate my ultimate sadness: my addiction to manga.

I did it like this so you can get an estimate on why I need a new book case. I'm also not including the trade paperbacks, comics, Newtypes, various how-to-draw-manga and 'sneak peek' books and various DVDs...

Intruigingly enough, only a few of those are complete series: Azumanga Daioh, Chobits, Demon Diary, Mouryoukiden, Prétear and Utena. Others, like Kare Kano and Full Metal Panic, I'm waiting for the rest of the series to be released. Manga like X/1999 and Samurai Deeper Kyo I basically gave up on, there are waaaaay too many books and too little of the series holds my interest these days...

The calculations on how much these books are theoretically worth makes my mind boggle. There's about 148 of them, allowing for my faulty counting and books hiding. If you average the price at £6.99 (some were more, some were less and some were gifts), on the whole this collection is worth... £1034.52. Of course, like I said, some were £12.99 when I bought them (when manga wasn't so popular so they charged extortionate prices...) and then others were either from Amazon at around £4.80 or, in Alien Nine's case, just had to be got rid of by the store (they were both about £3 - the second book was still £12 though, so no chance...)

It's depressing, thinking about how much I've spent. But of course I won't stop doing it. :P



I also had this really weird dream last night. This guy got killed, rather bloodily actually, and these two guys both felt that it was partially their fault. They were both in armed services of some kind, as was the dead man.

The two who felt guilty met on a rugby field, on opposing sides. One was red and one was blue. But the dead man had also played rugby, on the blue side. So the two men decide to throw the match so that the blues win, just as a tribute to him.

The other guys on the red side's expressions were pretty funny, actually, watching their team mate score goals and tries for the blue side.

I was sure when I woke that it had a moral, but I can't remember what I thought it was now.
