  • I've seen the show and disliked it so much that I'm not buying any figures from it despite all the amazing figures available.

    I can second a few of the comments here - I think you may regret buying something purely for aesthetic reasons if you have no emotional connection to the character or property. Those are usually the first things I sell and so I've stopped doing that and I try to measure my emotional connection to any property before I purchase merchandise. The weaker connections are also often sold...

    Having said that, Re:Zero is awesome. You might want to check it out and then you'll be hooked (and kicking yourself for not getting Subaru's nendo preordered). I was tempted because it is a great show but I'm phasing out my Nendo collecting.

    Also if you decide to get it anyway, with or without watching the show, please get Rem and Ram! Rem figmas and nendos skyrocket in price on the secondary market and Ram goes in the discount bin. Poor Ram never gets any love.

    gettogaara4 kuukautta sitten#76261440Personally, buying characters based on their designs alone is something that I try really hard to avoid. If I don't have some sort of emotional connection to the character or series, then I either end up regretting my purchase, or that figure's one of the first things on the chopping block when I start looking around to clear up some display space. On the other hand, you could always watch the anime as an incentive to buy the figures, or just buy Rem and see if you like her enough to buy Ram.

    Yeah, I'm thinking you're right.

    tundras4 kuukautta sitten#76283506Personally, I don't buy purely for aesthetics because I feel like I would be ignoring the character's backstory/personality. I also don't like having parts of my collection associated with properties I've never invested in.
    For me, "blank slate" original characters are specifically allowed in because there is no story to become familiar with--you're free to make up your own or leave it open.
    In the end, it's not really a problem as much as it is a collecting preference.


    Yeah, I totally get you it's up to the person in the end it's all a matter of what you really want to spend your own money on. I understand everyone saying that you should get a character you know or you might regret it but in the end whatever makes someone happy with their collection is most improtant.

    First, I'm sorry for my english !

    I have bought a lot of characters in the past whose design I appreciated. But over time, I ended up regretting them and selling them all. I think it is important to look at the base series to find out whether or not their purchase is worth it !

    I once considered buying a figure for the aesthetic (Invader Lum) but couldn't afford it at the time and I'm glad for that, because my interest in her design soon faded, since I had no other personal attachment to her.

    As people already said, you could just watch the show and see how you feel about the characters afterwards, I think that would be the best solution for you.

    My experience with buying something based on how much I love the design is that I sold it all shortly after. Sometimes it's hard to resist when you find a character that ticks all you moe boxes, but not knowing anything about them kinda takes away the charm, and if you don't like them when you finally watch the anime it's an even bigger disappointment.

    Honestly posting for everyone to get you to stop just gets us to pull you into a hole lol.
    But if you for sure have the money to spend go for it! I know people say don't get on designs alone, but I do that because I can appreciate the artstyles or colors used in certain characters. I mean, there are original character figures no one has attatchment to and they're made for design alone what's the problem with getting an existing character because you think they're cute?

    Personally, I don't really buy figures for aesthetic reasons unless I know it's an aesthetic that I'm SUPER into (the only 3 figures I've bought for aesthetics are my Arthur nendo, Okada nendo, and Okita Souji prize figures - but they're all within that knight/samurai/anything Japanese/hakama aesthetic that I've been in love with since pretty much childhood; I've also preordered Ozymandias nendo, but Ancient Egypt stuff has been my vibe since pretty much my yu-gi-oh filled childhood) since I KNOW I'm going to end up regretting it, but you do you. If you think you're not just caught in the heat of the moment and you'll still love them for their aesthetics later on, I don't see why you have to hold yourself back from buying them.

    Plus, if you decide that you're tired of them, you can always sell them! RE:Zero has a pretty big fanbase, I'm sure you'll find takers for them right away.
