My first blog post huh… The start of something new! What better way to kick off a new hobby than reminiscing about how I started my current hobby, Hiroshi Kamiya. My interest in Hiroshi Kamiya started rather abruptly; even I get confused as to how exactly it happened…
Let’s dive in, shall we?
Imagine 11pm on a Sunday night (not exactly the prime time to start a new hobby…), this was when I found myself madly googling a man called “Hiroshi Kamiya” who voiced a character I had fallen in love with; Art from Hamatora. Not one of his most known roles, but after completing that series I felt the all too familiar sense of wanting for more and not feeling quite ready to let go of the anime just yet. Suddenly, I saw him:
Adorable, isn’t he? From here I found myself going past the first page of Google, something almost unheard of. I ended up on a random Chinese site full of his music PVs. After watching My Diary (New Chapter), a beautiful revamp of Kamiya’s first feature PV back in 2009, I had to look for more.
Lucky me; his new album ハレロク (Hareroku) had just launched.
Usually I’m good with my money, but this man successfully persuaded me to impulse buy for the first time in my life. Then I couldn’t stop! In fact, when my second Kamiya haul shipment arrived I had a conversation with my family that went like so…
Me: Yay! My order finally arrived!
Dad: What did you order? Is that the more of the man you love?
My sister, loudly yelling from the other room: MORE OF THAT MAN SHE WON’T STOP BUYING STUFF OF!
Needless to say I responded with a simple “yes” and left to unbox my new merch haul…
I write this as a Hiroshi Kamiya poster almost the same size as me stares down on me from my wall. I guess it’s safe to say my “hobby” has slipped into an obsession by this point. Ah well! This Kamiya hobby has led me to pursue a new one, something I never would have tried without the opportunity being offered to me. For that, I’m quite thankful.
