How did you got into buying toys?
I'm assuming most of us are adults that at some point while growing up, we stopped buying and playing with toys; now we are buying them again, otherwise we wouldn't be in this board.
I feel like sharing my story with you guys, because you are in part responsible for my plastic addiction, and I love y'all.

And then I was a weeabo. I wonder if my bro ever watched keion, I like to think we were the male version of Yui/Ui.
