My Love for Anime Characters!
I’m a huge fan of anime characters, are you? I guess many of you love these characters because they are too entertaining and at times, very inspiring. They are often portrayed as superheroes that belong to an imaginary world. I absolutely love them. You would be surprised to know that I have watched more animated movies than other movies in my life. I enjoy every split of a second while watching these anime movies because I feel like being a part of that world. I always wish to somehow get into that imaginary or fictional world. Alas! I can’t. What most inspiring is when a superhero holds an anime sword and gets on his journey like a warrior to defeat the animes. And, I love how these movies end; we see that warrior standing tall against the odds and saving his land and people from a worst disaster.
Not just that I watch a lot of animated movies, I also play games that feature my favorite anime characters. Specifically, the games that include fighting with the swords. Since I am a huge fan of these movies and games, I love to use the weapons carried by these anime characters. One of the most desired items for me are the anime swords. I love collecting these swords, and to me it isn’t a surprise that I have managed to gather twenty swords of my favorite anime characters. You might be wondering how silly I am to purchase these swords for no reason. Believe me, I have a craze of carrying such weapons. I have a passion that encourages me to collect the anime swords and keep them in my arsenal
How I Collected Different Anime Swords?
Trust me, it was a highly challenging task. Gathering different swords, and especially the ones of your favorite anime characters was never easy. Most of the swords were quite rare in the market. However, I successfully managed to get all of them in my collection. However, there is a significant struggle and effort that I had to put in. My first ever sword was the Claymore inspired from a famous TV Series, The Claymore. I spend days searching for this sword, but could not find. This is now a very common swords available in the market, but when I was searching for it, it was quite rare. However, after a hard-fought battle, I managed to get my most favorite sword from an online store.
I found most of my anime swords from the online stores. You know how many online stores are now being operated in the US. I believe people have now stopped rushing to the stores physically to purchase items. Specifically, for items like swords, I don’t think anyone would now bother to visit retail stores. Rather, he would google the item and find hundreds of online stores offering his desired item. So, searching for your favorite thing is now easy and even easier is buying them and getting shipped to your home. However, it wasn’t in my case.
I spent days searching for my desired anime swords. If you search for some common swords, such as a Legend of Zelda sword, it is easier to find it. There are hundreds of stores providing this sword, but all the anime characters are not that popular. So, finding swords of some unrenowned anime characters is hardest of the tasks. Though I found all the swords online and eventually bought all of them online. However, it took a lot of time and effort. I am basically residing in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, but I found just a couple of swords from my home state. Most of the swords were shipped to me address from the other states.
Just googling the name of the sword is not enough to find your required anime sword. There were many things that I had to consider before making a purchase. I used to calculate the overall cost by calculating the product price and the shipping cost. In addition, I could never ignore the quality of the sword and the name of manufacturing brand. I purchased all of my swords from a renowned brand. I would even like to suggest you not to waste your money by just seeking for a cheap sword that is shipped to you in a quick succession. Rather, consider all the things including quality and price.
This is how I continued purchasing my favorite anime swords and now I have come to a point where I have around twenty of them. Being an enthusiast, I do not stop here! I would continue adding more and more swords in my arsenal.
Most Loveable Anime Swords in My Collection
