My Grail! and how I got into this hobbyMy Grail! and how I got into this hobbyDiary

Quick background on me..... I'm a graduating senior(who's never gonna get to walk the stage :/)
and I've been collecting for close to a year now plus been into anime since forever ig (3rd grade ish?) I kinda got pushed into Naruto which was airing the Pain arc at the time but WOW I binged it real quick for a lil kid(caught up to the airing eps round 4th? end of 4th?) Have watched A LOT since then...prolly thousands by now (Team No Sleep am i right?? ha ha ha... I feel tired just saying that)

Anyways, I started collecting figures around a year ago after seeing some SUPER cute Boa prize figures at Fanime 2019, where I went on a prize figure spree...so much money spent irresponsibly ughhhhhh and that's how my addiction got started! My interest in figures started a while ago though when I saw THARJA!!

There I was, a little 6th grader just entering middle school... After saving up forever to get a pre-owned 3DS from GameStop and get a pre-owned version of FE Awakening after playing all the GBA FE games on emulators...I'm sorry...I've learned my lesson and have bought the actual copies now, I finished it and was just browsin' the internet for nice wallpapers and BANG! I see my in-game wife/waifu in a SEXY pose and I was just mindblown... Well, that's where my interest started but c'mon now what kinda 6th grader can afford this hobby(or any kind of hobby really)

AND I FINALLY HAVE HER NOW
Keep in mind, I know she's not that rare just EXPENSIVE AF. STILL I consider her my grail! Well, this isn't just because she sparked my interest in figures. After I first resolved myself to pick up scale figures (so right after I got a job), Tharja was the first figure I went for ofc but BAM bootleg... Ended up tossing her out and getting my refund from eBay(cmon stupid old me...$70 is just too good to be true) But then the second time I picked her up, it was from another eBay seller for $190... Wasn't fake but then after that burst of euphoria I felt following me pressing that "Place my order" button(or whatever the heck it says)... Seller sends a message saying something like "She's been in the warehouse for too long and has turned yellow...moldy...some shit like that" That just bummed me out so much and I was like...I give up on her. And then MArch I try again with another JP eBay seller for $210. BAM the darn shipping delays hit!

Oooook I'll stop my rant now and end with this! The whole reason I decided to write an article! HOLY COW finally getting my grail today felt AMAZING!!! First the bootleg, then the second seller cancelling on me, then FINALLY (even with the delays) SHE"S HERE. Words cannot describe the feelings I had when I held her box in my hands. Everything in the world just seemed right... Life was great... I just sat here grinning like an idiot...till my brother walked in and that was INSTANT sober mode again Anndddd all the terrible sides of life came flooding back (remembered I have college coming up...where dorms are small... and I can't order figures)

Also, here's my collection after putting some figures back into their boxes and selling a bunch that I realized I either don't love their character enough to be spending that much on them or bc I don't like that specific figure of them and want another

Here's what's left in my detolf

And here's some figures I really like (especially Erwin...SPOILERView spoilerHide spoilerHis face just reminds me of that final charge he had against the Beast Titan and wow... I can still feel the shivers his speech gave me then and how I just lost my breath when that rock hit him...cried like a baby), art prints I've picked up over the years(bunch more from different cons but I'm too lazy to take pics rn), and some posters(shoutout to Kinokuniya...great store over in Japantown SF that's kinda SUPER overpriced)

Btw Kawakami is waifu. Kawakami is life. Kawakami. Tired Kawakami especially. Not Becky. Even if this post is about Tharja...

I'd say Female Robin is my favorite girl in Awakening. But aside from that, congrats on getting your grail! I haven't even bothered looking for this figure in forever because she's so expensive everywhere you look T-T Tbh though I'd probably drop all my money on a male FE figure if they ever come out with one lol, still waiting for that day

SallyaHace 1 mes#78478328Thanks, but Panne o-over Tharja...? JUst kidding!! Haha I definitely do understand why people would be drawn towards Panne though! On a side note, her son (married her w Gaius too) annoyed me with how much of a wuss he was compared to his fierce Taguel mom though. Man, that map was annoying for me when I tried to fight both armies and recruit her son...It's like the map was just drowned in red...

Oh definitely. Panne is quality best girl, then her son has everything worst boi going on. Did not help that I chose to side with neither army on that map, so everything was harder & Yarne kept trying to suicide into me. I have never had to reset a map so many times.

I actually married Tharja to Henry. Something I came to immediately regret as I started to imagine what hellspawn they'd produce. Pretty sure I doomed the world worse than Grima by putting those 2 together.

AsiendyHace 1 mes#78472660Don't listen those who denigrate Tharja.There's not really anyone who talks badly about Tharja while giving the rest of the characters a pass. The problem is with Awakening changing the support system wholesale to work with the marriage system, causing it to become a game of interchangeability with none of the supports being particularly meaningful at all. It's not helped by the fact that the setting itself is completely one dimensional and only serves as a backdrop for characters to behave illogically as an excuse for more combat.

That aside, people like different things, and I'm glad you found that one thing you wanted OP.

SeikiHace 1 mes#78472342Panne was more of a "best girl" for me in Awakening, but you included Gaius, and I like him & Owain a lot too, so I voted Gaius even if not included probably fits more. Besides, I married Gaius to Panne in my run.
Congrats on finally getting your grail!
