「毎日楽しいの為に」 Flawless Passion
Finally, my 4 years of college ends and now I must move back to my old room at my parent’s place in the bay area. Prior to moving back in, I went through a great deal of effort to renew the interiors of the room, the process of which you can see over here in this page.
The view you are presented with upon entering the room. Feel free to compare this 2015 version of my room to how it was in 2012.
I believe it would be correct to say that one of the most eye-catching features of the room is the high shelf of boxed Nendoroids. Not that I am a collector of sealed figures, but rather I simply don’t have the space to display all of them currently. Almost all of these Nendoroids have been unboxed and displayed at one time or another. And of course, I have other figures besides Nendoroids. They are stored elsewhere in the room, and you will see them later.
My desk area. The one next to the window with the computer is my main desk, while the other one is where I spend time drawing and sketching. The illustrations you see on the wall there are prints of concept art from PSO2 that I purchased in Japan. For your information, at the time of writing, my own art is nowhere near that level of professionalism.
A close up of the wall next to the main desk. Sadly, this glass desk doesn’t have any kind of shelving or storage spaces unlike my previous wooden desk.
Glancing over to the right where you can see the head of my bed that is adjacent to my main desk.
Here is a close up on the head of the bed. I have lots of pillows, and the Asuna pillow cover is a particular favoite. Regarding the bed, I love this bed’s design, which gives me shelving space to store a bunch of manga right there for easy access. I love being able to lay in bed and just reach out for a volume of manga to read at any time.
A look at the bed in full. Another aspect of the design I like about this bed is the walls on one of the sides and at the end of the bed. The height of the bed is also decently high, which gives me a lot of room to storage things underneath. That is where my boxed scale figures and plastic model boxes are currently stored. Underneath the layers of blankets are 2 dakimakura that I hug to sleep every night. Yes, two. As you can see, my bed space is fully loaded for comfort. (But when it gets hot, it gets hot.)
Moving onto the space behind the end of the bed, is the kotatsu/TV area.
This space is more simplistic and plain, although I am sure with the passage of time the surrounding walls would become filled with decorations. The shelf in the corner is where I displayed some of my built models, but I didn’t have every single one out at the time. I have always had a “gather/play area” in my room where friends could sit down and enjoy activities together.
Me and my little brother do not watch TV, however this is the entertainment space where we watch anime together while eating dinner every night and also play games at. The TV is hooked up with my PC and my Halo 5 edition Xbox One. For the record, my little brother has his own TV and gaming consoles in his room where we occasionally watch and play stuff as well.
Next, I have a cabinet and some more shelves adjacent to the glass desk for drawing. Yes, more shelves filled with manga. Yet, I don’t particularly feel that my manga collection is that big, although I do understand that it is not small (given how I often need to make more space for them). In the drawers are miscellaneous stuff, modeling supplies, and electronics.
Finally turning around to look at the door to this room. Above the doorway is another high shelf where my boxed Figma are stored. Hmm… I never realized how much smaller my Figma collection was compared to my Nendoroid collection. Also nearby the door are some framed photos and a framed jigsaw puzzle.
Lastly, a look at the back wall in full.
And that is all for the 2015 version of my room at my parent’s place. I don’t know for how long I will continue to live here, but for the time being. I am home.
