Hey! Welcome to The Otaku Shelf!

My name is Hollyn aka Spirit Rubi. (Though a lot of people call me Holli, which is my nickname.) I’m currently a 16 year old female who absolutely loves anime, manga, figures, photoshop, and drawing. My birthday is on July 12th and my favorite color is red.

I live in the United States, Illinois to be exact around the Chicago area. My favorite stores to shop at for my otaku needs in the area are Mitsuwa, Borders, Gamestop, and Best Buy.

When was about 6 years old, I watched my first anime, Gundam Wing. At age 12, I picked up my first manga which was the adorable, Tokyo Mew Mew. 2005 was when I really started getting into anime and manga. My figure collecting started in 2008 so I don’t have many figures yet, but I am starting to pre-order more.

On May 16th 2008 I had the vacation of a life time, going to Japan. I visited Tokyo and Kyoto and of course visited Akihabara. I’m teaching myself Japanese and hope to take actual classes next year to improve if I ever visited again.

This blog is dedicated to my otaku hobbies obviously so I hope you stick around. I will post many reviews, information, events, etc. ( =  ω  = )

    Hey Holli, I just came across your blog (via searching for Code Geass stuff) and I’m really enjoying going through your entries. I’m running a blog myself and I’ll be putting you into my blogroll (mainly so I remember to check back haha).

    I just wanted to let you know I’m liking your blog and share mine in case you’re interested – I mainly post about anime stuff and Japan so I think you might like it. Here it is: http://stevelikes.wordpress.com/

    Anyway, this is already much longer than it probably should be.

    Keep up the good work! ^_^

    Thanks, I really do appreciate it.

    By the way, I’m a bit jealous of you playing HeartGold and SoulSilver. ^^;

    Hi, I came across your site and wasn’t able to get an email address to contact you about some broken links on your site. Please email me back and I would be happy to point them out to you.
