Each season there will be some anime series that will become the most popular among the others. Last year, and despite whoever it may be, the animated adaptation of Koyoharu Gotouge's manga, Kimetsu no Yaiba, was one of the most prominent, greatly expanding its fan base.
A man from Taiwan is one of them, spending a large sum of his money just to buy scale figures of the character Nezuko Kamado, the sister of the protagonist of the franchise. According to a post in a Taiwanese group, the man complained about how his girlfriend, who was living with him, threw away all his figures valued at M $ 14,000 (more than $ 3,400).
He mentioned that his girlfriend took advantage of the fact that he was away visiting his hometown for a couple of days to get rid of the scale figures that he had obtained after many hours of work. When he confronted her about her actions, she mentioned that they took up space and she piled them up in a bag to get rid of them.
The desperate man tried to call the garbage collection company to see if he could get his beloved scale figures back, however the company informed him that the collected garbage had already been incinerated. In addition to that, he also mentioned that his girlfriend did not like him to watch anime, which caused him to miss the premiere of the movie Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen in theaters in Taiwan.
“I didn't care that she watched Korean dramas and passed out watching idols all the time, is it so difficult to respect other people's preferences? To think that I really hid my preferences back then just to get their approval. I was so stupid, "she added in her posts. The man later mentioned that he broke off their relationship and she retaliated by saying, "Otaku love that trash too much, I find it ridiculous.
