Spent thousands on anime and manga as a teen
Blew most of the money I made mowing lawns
My entire collection is worth like $300 now
I don't really care for anime and manga any more

I think I'll just haul the entire thing to a used book store or a comic shop and be done with it. What say you Sup Forums?

Becoming a normalfag, it just proves you never embraced a future with your love of Anime. Burn in a fire and suck a dick, your indecisive ass for a life choice is a good indicator you'll never marry.

Thousands = $300
Entire collection $300
What? Did you get conned as a kid? How did you earn so little in your entire teen years? What the fuck are you getting paid in pennies? What did you spend all that money on?
I bought the entire collection of Battle Angel Alita, and I would make 4x the money from selling it since the early volumes are out of print. What the fuck did you invest in?

And I doubt you really cared enough to start with, go and find a new hobby like gardening or something.

I know right, why is this faggot crying when he never invested properly. I'm not even at Hardcore otaku level but I've buy fagged figures that will at least set me on even if I ever sell.

This guy was just a fake, it's also one of the more affordable hobbies to maintain your interest. Society is just slapping its dick on his face and his beta ass is spreading.

Enjoy what you want, if you lost the feeling then take your losses and go. No one gives a shit or pity for retards.

have 5-6 small boxes chock full of manga
no idea what to do with it
takes up space and I haven't bought any in a very long time
Wish I could sell it but I doubt much of it is worth anything and I don't think I'd make any return if I sell off a volume or two here and there on the internet.

Borrowed my roommates truck and hauled an entire pickup bed full of manga to the used bookstore
"Excuse me sir I would like to sell some manga"
He spends 3 hours going through all of it
Sorry, these just aren't worth anything but I've got a dumpster out back you can throw them in

You invest time to read it, you invest money that requires time to earn it. You invest to get something back, mainly enjoyment, but in worst case, get back the cost, in a more ideal case, you earn more than you put in. So yeah, investment sound quite true.
Buying series that are mass printed in millions or not desired enough to earn some kind of rare status
Blame yourself.
Looks nice on the shelves kiddo. Or do you fill all the rows with family photos and flower pots?
Burn it. What have you got? The usual Ranma and Bleach?

The usual Ranma and Bleach?
Neither of those, actually. I should make a list at some point. I had one but that was several years ago. I've got a scattering of all kinds of random shit like first ~8 volumes of Claymore, 8-10 of Beet the Vandel Buster, 7 of Negima, some YYH, all of Death Note (kind of proud of myself for following it from the very start with release of first volume waaay before the bandwagon ever began), a 4-volume series called Warriors of Tao, couple volumes of The Young Magician (which reeked of subtle yaoi after I bought and read it), and hundreds of individual other volumes. I don't remember how many actual series I was trying to keep up with but I know I had somewhere between 300-500 individual volumes, maybe more.

I only buy the stuff I really, really enjoy and can watch over and over again. I want to buy Haruhi but I'm not interested in selling my left testicle for it on Blu Ray.
I've got TWGOK, Spice and Wolf, Cowboy Bebop and stuff.

Jose Flores
Jose Flores

yeah but people would also want to access these things and not put them into storage, people like the reassurance of the current things they're interested in on display. Part of it is peace of mind. Sure, people put things on display out of a sense of pride but that's a pretty normal way of personalising living space.

When I first mentioned investment, it was financial as well as time & energy. If you don't think of the 2nd definition automatically you aren't living your life correctly, or with focus at least.

You will grow old and regret eventually if you never feel in the moment the hobby you are pursuing is something you enjoy and is worth it.

More than half my life has been surrounded by anime interests, and at times I've felt regret, but in this moment I've come to terms with it all and am happy with what I have.

Like what people have been saying and I've mentioned, this hobby can only cost the amount of a net connection when done frugally.

If you are ashamed of your interests because other people don't understand, you shouldn't let them bother you in the first place.

If you have intrinsic relationships that can't work because of anime, you haven't put enough effort in pacifying their concern into a resolution, or manoeuvred yourself in a favourable situation.

Also people are retarded as fuck, you're a man and you can chose how you live your life, even listlessly or slovenly, as long as you don't regret and whine about the repercussions.

People come to Sup Forums to discuss with like minded people, there are many normalfags with a passing interest or warriors that grew up with it but had to drop due to RL stuff, either way don't come here to whine like a bitch, that's a taste of what Sup Forums use to be like. We got /r9k/ for shit like this, mods aren't doing their jobs again the insufferable cunts.
