Just a guy with a lot of love for anime and the figures that accompany them. I'm always open to talking to new people, might even learn a thing or two from you guys as well!

I finally got my stuff together to share a piece of me with you guys!

Name: Julio Ruiz. I've acquired the nickname "Frijolito" through my lovely friends XD

Age: 25

Nationality: American - I live in North Carolina ( Monroe to be exact)

How many years you have been an otaku: I've been an anime fan for 14 years now. Started with some VHS tapes of Tenchi Muyo and plenty of Toonami. It wasn't till Gundam Wing that I discovered that stores actually sold anime ( R.I.P. Media Play). From there I stumbled into manga with Love Hina and Oh My Goddess and the like and have been collecting ever since. It wasn't till 4 years ago that I started collecting figures. I soon found my self blowing 1k within the first 3 months of working! I knew then this wasn't a good sign--- oh well!

Outline of your collection: I have around 54 figures; many artbooks- many of which are of the Range Murata or My Otome kind. Around 120 manga, and I don't even want to count my dvd's XD

How much your collection cost: I'd say around $10,000 roughly, don't really want to think about it heh

Your Favorite item: It would definitely be my Kotobukiya Belldandy figure - I had it signed by Kikuko Inoue back when she came to Animazement in 2007.

Anything else you'd like to say: Well I just appreciate the opportunity of sharing my room with you guys and seeing the other spectacular setups you guys and gals have!

Here is the general layout of my room. The signed Range Murata was originally a wallscroll that I had framed. I just didn't realize how big it was gonna be!

So here is my little desk. Its pretty clear at the moment but will probably change as the time passes.
