I'll cut straight to the point. Have you ever done something that seems out of the ordinary to show your obsession? Yesterday, 10 years ago.... anything. I'm sure there are many great stories.
As for me, well.... I've loved Pokemon ever since my neighbor visited Japan. He brought me back a Pikachu capsule toy. This was a little after Pokémon had first come out in Japan, and obviously, neither the games or anime were in America yet. I instantly fell in love with the series and showed my obsession as much as possible. All of my friends thought it was stupid, but I was proud to be "the Pokémon master" when the games and anime were finally released. Anyway.... since I was (and still am) extremely obsessive compulsive, the 6 year old me decided to learn Japanese. By myself, for the sole purpose of watching new episodes in Japanese. Of course, not much progress was made in the first few years, but I eventually was able to watch the raw episodes. I now consider myself fluent in speaking the language, but am unable to write it. I know some kanji from taking Mandarin Chinese, but other than that, almost nothing. ....You're amazing if you read through all of that.
Anyway. Other actions include....
-Bending spoons (with our hands) and running around my neighbour's house screaming "Abra! Kadabra! ALAKAZAM!"
-Skipped school with a bunch of other kids to go see the first Pokémon movie
-Claimed to have heard/seen a Mew in the sky after said movie was finished
-Cried with joy and later sadness and then joy again during and after said movie
-And during the second movie.
-Wore my makeshift Ash cosplay outfit to school (and everywhere else); Pikachu plushie, Pokéballs, and "Dexter" included
-Pretended that there was a Bulbasaur in the basement, a Zapdos flying outside, a Pikachu in my room, etc.
-Tried to "feed" Pikachu from "Hey You, Pikachu!" a blue ice pop and stained part of the yellow "microphone puff" green
-Wrote daily journal entries complete with drawings about Pokémon
-Played Game Boy/Game Boy Colour nonstop
-Bringing Pikachu and a GIANT Marill plushie along for plane rides (in Ash cosplay outfit) while getting strange looks from the flight attendants and passengers.... and having little kids ask me if I was Ash. XD
-Saw Pokémon Live and attended way too many Pokémon events
-Too addicted to SOVA
-Painted Pokémon and Pokémon trainers all over my room (Mainly Ash)
-Has comments about Ash in silver Sharpie all over my laptop for school
-Won 2 Pikachu-soundalike contests
-Is obsessed with voice acting- Ash (really bad), Pikachu, Duplica, other Pokémon
-Used a whole bottle of "Got to be Glued" hair gel to get "Ash hair"
-....And a whole lot more. Yay for being an obsessed child. XD
Just a reminder, this all happened when I was a child. 7 to 9 years old, or maybe a little longer. Well, enough about me. Why don't you share some of your own stories?
