Yes - this is what my room used to look like in 1988. Used to be totally in lurve with Kylie Minogue - my photos with Kylie live here ^^;
Notice the PlayBoy cover on the wall - being a young lad with no internets was tough - all health care material was paper based...
I think this was in 1990. Notice how the Japanese influence is starting to take over. Original Macross VHS on screen. The first version I watched was dubbed in Cantonese.
The Japanese influence started from games - specifically the Sega Mega Drive.
Also notice the Little Mermaid on the TV. Ariel is such a sweetie - my first figure.
I think this was in 1990. After the Mega Drive and incredibly crappy Mega CD Rom, I got a Super Famicom. Started to fall in love with 2D girls too. Used to get PC Engine magazine for the 2D girls - didn't have a PC Engine at the time though.
You will also notice pics of Claudia Schiffer too - will post the pics I have taken with Kylie and Claudia soon.
The transition from Kylie to Japanese Anime and Game Otaku is complete and by 1993 I finally make my first trip to Japan after saving up every year for a plane ticket. For those who are interested, I talk about what I was doing at this moment in life in my Learning Japanese article which explains how I went from wanting-to-live-in-Japan to actually living here.
The next love in my live was Nishida Hikaru - you may remember me chasing after her in roller blades from reading this article.
Im sure that it happens to most of us but how many of you are/were in lurve with celebrities or 2D girls/boys? Any ones in particular?
Got rid of the horrible wallpaper in 1994 and painted everything white. Kept up posters of Hikaru and other 2D girls.
I had to trek to a Japanese book store to get hold or Japanese TV recordings. I'm telling ya - learning Japanese and being an otaku without the internets was tough!
The brunette 2D girl is from Dangaioh - forgot her name but you can see how nice she is from the following vid.
