Starting a New Hobby

Hi hi!

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.

What is your current favourite hobby? Do you have any obsessions hobbies now that you never expected to get in to? Let me know below!

  1. I’m an OnoD fan so I get where you’re coming from. Kamiya and Ono together are absolute gold. Do you like any other seiyuu? There are so many that I like. Wish I could spend money on more OnoD merch, but I already spend way too much on my other hobbies. I should probably at least get a nice sized poster or something.

    My other hobbies are anime, manga, J-Rock, and video games (expensive hobbies…)

    1. Sorry for the late reply! I like Tattsun, Mamo, Zakki and Toyonaga too!! And I understand, balancing expensive hobbies is really tough ;;

      1. No problem ^_^. Oh yeah! Tattsun, Mano, and Toshi are great. I don’t think I know Zakki. I also like Kaji, Sugita, Nakamura, and Suzumura. The ones I’ve really grown fond of recently are JunJun and Sakupyon. Aside from OnoD, those two are becoming steady favorites. I’ve become a seiyuu geek lol

  2. Congratulations on your first post! With the sheer amount of HiroC tweets flooding my Twitter timeline, it surprises me to discover that this HiroC hobby of yours is relatively recent. I would’ve expected that perhaps you’ve been a fan for a longer time. As for me, I don’t think I have any “new” hobbies. Hmmm. Maybe I should think about trying a new one. We’ll see. Anyway, I hope that you keep on blogging and of course never forget to enjoy yourself. Cheers!

    1. I’ve always wanted to play the drums! I don’t think I’d be very good though… I played the violin when young but ended up quitting due to time constraints ヽ(´□`。)ノ

  3. no obsession hobbies unless you count spending my whole day on the computer, then I pretty much have a serious obsession with being online.
    Though technically I spend half the time watching anime if not more, then lots of manga hehe.
    I spend money on books? I’m very picky on the covers. So if the hardcover looks better, even if it’s more expensive I will buy it.

    1. I’m addicted to video games, anime and Hiroshi Kamiya…I understand. I love buying books too though, or Japanese magazines! Other than having Kamiyan on the front of the magazine, the ones I own are very good quality compared to magazines here in the UK! (^◇^;)
