When I go to a convention or any place with lots of anime merchandise, I hold close to my chest one important policy: Ogiue First.
The immediate reason behind this is to prioritize Ogiue merchandise over everything else, as it should be. The secondary effect of the Ogiue First policy is that it prevents me from going crazy buying merchandise and going way over whatever my intended budget was. In a sense, I am using to my advantage the fact that Ogiue is not a character who gets much merchandise of her.
Ogiue is not only a source of obsession but also a source of self-control.
But I’m still buying that Revoltech Souther when it comes out.
