A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words: AsianPopShock's Packaging Spotlight Gallery 
Personal Taste - Snapshots
I've always enjoyed collecting things - books, purses, tea cups (don't ask) and, of course, DVDs and BDs. This enjoyment is likely fed by my love for beautifully packaged things. While I know it's the content that really counts, I'd be a liar if I didn't admit to being swayed to blind buy things that are attractively wrapped. There's just something really satisfying to me about finding space on my shelves for a new item, whatever it might be, and that's definitely enhanced when it's something particularly beautiful or cool.

Back when I started AsianPopShock, I knew I wanted to share the interesting Asian finds I'd picked up over the years - particularly with fellow fans who share my obsession with packaging and bonus features. Packaging Spotlight grew out of that, and now it's evolved into a regular feature that covers both favorite films and dramas, as well as current titles.



Packaging Spotlights continue to be my favorite posts on this blog, but after all this time, the spotlight tag has gotten a little unwieldy. Thus, I've finally started a gallery where they can all be accessed from one spot.

If you're a new reader, just start clicking on the ones that look interesting. And whether you're just starting out or you've been here forever, definitely ask questions and share your own thoughts about favorite DVDs and box sets. Talking about these kinds of things and giving and getting recs always makes my day.
