Well... when I was in high school, I need to save my money and force myself not to buy food just for anime merchandise like magazines (Questor) XP
The prices of original anime CDs are expensive compared to pirated ones :D so I've decided to buy only pirated ^_^'

You can buy anime merchandise in Tokyo Kids (SM Manila) ;)

its dearer in japan for everything

say a DVD for instance, 2 eps and in japanese only of course and around $60 AU so that might be about $46 for a dvd.

Time

In time you said you loved me
Time is Time right?
How long is time to you?

A day, a week, a year
Who knows?
The love you show is fading, like time it self

The hours become days, and days, become years
That’s how long I’ve waited for you
The clock ticks and the love you shown is gone

We moved on with life and time
Time is time right?
Why would you care what time is and isn’t

Love moves on like the arrows on the clock
But, my clock is frozen in this time of love
That’s why in time you said you loved me

Everything... damn external debt and inflation... Damn damn damn

Everything seems more expensive now, even with a job and income coming in. While I was working (before the school semester started) I told myself I'd get a manga a week. But I never bought one because the money could always be used better elsewhere (summer class tuition :P).

Waay too expensive... I want to buy so much cool stuff and I can barely afford to buy the DVDs of my absolute few favourite series. Let alone anything else >_<

Everything is expensive but the trouble I have is that there isn't very much of anything anime released in my country, anime or merchandise wise. Even if I can't afford it, release it already!! At least then I can moan with everybody else!!

I wouldn't recommend anime as a hobby to anyone who does not have full-time job because it is an expensive hobby to get into. At the same time, I'm not too fond of people openly saying to go ahead and get pirated version either since pirates had nothing to do with creating the series and marketing it.
