If you've been following me on Twitter or Youtube, you'd know that I had a very special day last Monday. It was my five year anniversary on Youtube! At 22:30 on 25.June.2007 I uploaded my very first video to Youtube. At 22:30 on 25.June.2012 I uploaded a very special video showing off the mysterious screen-used prop Dragon Buckler that I own.
It's getting harder and harder to remember what I was thinking when I started my channel. I think I just wanted to make a handful of videos of some of the obscure changers that I owned. Then my collection grew...and somehow I went from a could of videos a week, to sporadic uploads, and finally ended up on the weekly schedule that continues today.
I keep telling myself that I'll take a break, but I never do. I haven't taken a week off since July of last year. Oh well...
So here I am, five years later. A lot has happened in the world and in Tokusatsu. Some of the new shows have certainly spurred a heightened interest in Tokusatsu. I'm just glad that I was there, reviewing toys along side the expanding fanbase.
In the end, I hope everyone out there got something out of my videos. Some people like to watch my videos because they're curious about old toys. Some people use my channel as a buying guide for newer toys. Some people just like my video style. Whatever the case, I'm glad to have done it for so long. If my channel gets taken down tomorrow, I won't care. My main goal for the past six months was to make it to the five year mark. You guys weren't in the room with me when I uploaded my five year video. It was definitely a surreal moment for me.
Thank you so much for watching my videos for five years. I really appeciate everyone who has come out to see my work. Especially those of you who have been around since the start!
