Now, in case you guys haven’t picked up on this…I’m a MAJOR nerd. Yep. I love fantasy and sci-fi novels, movies, TV shows, comics, etc. I love anime. I love manga. I love video games. I love learning (in a big way). I love coming up with my own languages. I love dressing up to go see movies at the theatre. I love it ALL. So, that being said, I thought it would be fun to showcase the nerdiest stuff I own–complete with honorable mentions for that stuff that might not be *quite* nerdy enough for some, but just nerdy enough for others.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

Case #1: I’ve got a wicked Sailor Moon obsession…

Key chains with the five main sailor scouts. I'm still collecting and am trying to find Chibi-Moon and the outer scouts. ;-)

That's the Sailor Moon RPG game guide, a character diary (sort of thing...), and a Sailor Moon info book.

Case #2: I’m a rabid Doctor Who fan…

And I've got the sonic screwdrivers to prove it!

Case #3: I love acquiring adorable stuffed animals of the nerdy persuasion…

Here we have Pikachu and an adorable pig (named "Buta") wearing a Totoro hat...

Case #4: My hubby and I still play Pokemon video games and card games…

My husband insists that this isn't a very nerdy thing, but I think some people would disagree... (My electric/grass deck is the BOMBdiggity)

Case #5: I have a shelf that is THREE layers thick with legit Japanese manga…

Yep. Got ALL of these for like $35.00 bucks at a used bookstore closing. WIN!

Case #6: I’m a PC gamer and also play old console games (think N64, PS2, etc.)…

Such a beauty….I LOVE N64 games!
Awww yeah. You know you remember that game! It was awesome…

Honorable Mentions (Not Pictured):

>> The Star Wars Vault — This has so many awesome conceptual images and background information on the Star Wars movies…SO FUN!

>> Giant Star Wars Poster — Maybe this isn’t super nerdy, but it’s a pretty epic poster…

>> Pikachu Pencil Topper — He sits on top of my computer tower.

>> The hubby and I like to build our own computers. — Because pre-built, store-bought computers just don’t cut it on pricing and performance. Besides, we’ve got to custom build so we can play certain games at max settings!

>> I own almost EVERY single Studio Ghibli film… Still need to grab a couple of the more obscure ones, but I’m definitely getting there!

>> I have stacks upon stacks of fan art for anime from my middle-school years…

>> I have my own graphic novel I started in middle school…

What are the nerdiest things you own? I’d love to hear about them! Nerds of the world UNITE!

The Nerdiest Things I Own
Tagged on:     
  • What?! No Stargate SG-1 / Atlantis / Universe? No Naruto? No One Piece?

    NO STAR TREK?!!

    I’m revoking your “nerd” badge.

    • What evs, Bill. I’m a MAJOR Star Wars nerd and I love Stargate Universe (What I’ve seen of it).

  • OMG Sailor Moon and Inuyasha were my favorites!

    • Aren’t they amazing? I love me some Sailor Moon and Inuyasha. Hard to beat!

  • Kelli

    I live with a really adorable “architecture” and “Star Wars”-type Nerd with a penchant for Legos. Our most notable acquisitions include 2 lightsabers, a Lego Millenium Falcon, and the Lego Farnsworth House. He’s been eying the Falling Water (F.L. Wright) Lego house for a while now.

    In the waaaaay nerdy category, I also have an Oliver Sacks fan-girl shelf. Yes, I have a fan-girl obsession with a professor of neuropsychology. He’s a genius, I can’t help it.

    • That’s AWESOME, Kelli! I love being a nerd, don’t you? It just gives you this smug sense of pride, doesn’t it?

  • I really, really, really WANT to see that Star Wars vault of yours!

    You must show that in your next post or whenever.

    As for me, on my cabinet right now is a an A-team of assorted villains and superheroe statues/bobbleheads that include Gandalf, Batman, Optimus Prime, The Joker, Yoda and Gollum lol

    I also had to genuinely used my replica light-up lightsaber during a blackout one time because I didn’t have any candles in the house. 🙂

      That is the BEST thing ever! Yeah, I totally should have taken a picture of my Star Wars Vault, but I didn’t snap one by the time I was putting the stuff together. I’ll have to do that in another “part II” post!
