I can relate to the spending of anime. I have spent close to $400 on anime VHS but lately I've been buying DVDs which sem to come to $200. Then the other things like cels, wall scolls and action figures of this to about $300. With how much people spend on anime we could be considered small time cartel.

You need more then a 12 step progam to get an otaku off anime.You'll need to completely de-program an otaku with instense persistance.^,,,^

I remember that page! XD Some of the info does seem a bit dated, though.

At least they did get the right idea about the Clockwork Orange-style treatment. XD

HAHA  I love Step #9

9.) When someone says "convention", force yourself to think of large gatherings of boring people in suits selling kitchen appliances.

Oh.. about buying anime in chinatown!  NO BAD OTAKU!  Support the arts.

(From FanimCon 2003 Friday Edition June 20, 2003 Newsletter)
Taken from last year FanimeCon Bootleg Policy....

""#1 They take away from the legitimately licensor that of that video.  Do you like anime on high quality DVD's with all the bells and whistles?
#2 Most dealers who sell bootlegs will charge you the same price fro bothe the real thing & the bootleg.  In some cases, you will buy a counterfeit, a burned copy, for a full price.  Oh yeah, I want to do that.
#3 Finally, we want you to shop with the piece of mind that you are getting the real thing.  Quality counts.  After many years in both anime and comic book fandom, I can tell you that every bootleg I got was always replaced with the higher quality item.

Remember, if we want fandom to continue we have to support it with the legitimate product.  If we all buy bootlegs and download anime, there will be no market left.  If you take away the market, There will be nobody who will want to be involved.  Thanks for the time and happy shopping! ""

I only DL anime that hasn't been released here yet- It's that or buying the bootleg DVDs, and those not only take $ away from Japan but their subtitles suck.

And I agree- I haven't bought a -lot- of anime (I only buy my favs) but the retail value of my collection has got to be a couple thousand by now. @_@; Scary...
