I am posting this as a part of the challenge and not with the intention of bragging. This was bought with my hard saved and hard earned money. Also, apologies for the quality of the photo. I find it hard to take photos of them without the light of our bulb bouncing back. I cannot really take them out of their plastic covers.
I started buying Arashi stuff back in college. I had a bigger allowance then than in high school. I cannot really afford buying a lot of their congoods and albums so I really save up before deciding what to buy. Whenever I buy, I always have uchiwas in my collection.
Let us not forget my Fanlight from Digitalian concert <3 I haven't got my light stick for 5x20 because I asked my friend to keep it for me then I'll get it on November same with my albums. The light has 5 colors. What I like about this one is that I bought it back in 2014 but the battery is still alive. Talking about Japan quality.
Also, I rarely buy singles, albums and concert dvds. I have a total of one single, 6 albums (three of them were the 5x20 LE1, LE2, RE. But I haven't recieved them yet), and one concert dvd. Why only one condvd? It doesn't have subs. :( I only get subbed ones in the communities. Also, I tend to buy albums rather than singles because of practicality. All singles will be included in their yearly album anyway.
I also have small items from either Waku Waku, 24hrTV, and Concerts.
Since, I only buy things that are useful for everyday life. Here are some items I purchased and use from time to time :)
Unfortunately, I can only buy shirts from 24HRTV because of my large body built :( Concert Tshirt are usually in free size.
This was ruined :( I'll try to find another when i go to Japan :(
I also bought the 5x20 blanket but it is currently being dried up in the sun because I a using it as aircon blocker in the office.
Also, this towel. :)
I also have books. :D Photobook and an actual book. I don't know how to read it though.
It really is expensive to buy the goods but I have no other way to support them. Although half of these stuff is something the is not really useful for everyday life it still gives me joy. I think I won't be selling them even if I have to. Haha. All of these are well kept in my cabinet for my mother not to see them and not scold at me for spending this much.
Hope this may inspire other supporters to just buy original stuff and support them in the most legal way. You may not be able to buy lots of their goods but even one is enough to show your support.
That'll be all. See you on the next,
