I just want to show off my spider. It's my first one, I'm insanely excited about it, and I think it's really cute!

I did some research, settled on this species, and started to browse around to buy one. Then last weekend my bf surprised me by buying this little thing for me!
Apparently the shop acquired it in March, so it's still quite young and small, but I'm excited to watch it grow up!
I think it might be female, but it's hard to tell and I'm a noob.
It doesn't really have a name (yet) but I've been calling it Buddy.

I thought from your name you were Icelandic, but you're from japan :).
Is the T hobby big over there?
Congrats on your first Theraphosidae!:)

Haha, not Icelandic; just a huge Saga nerd! I'm Canadian actually; I just live here!
I don't think so. I haven't met anyone else here who has one. It was kind of a nightmare to find a place that sells these guys. People here are obsessed with 'cute' things and huge spiders don't fall in that category for most people haha!
Thank you so much for the welcome! I'm happy to be starting in this hobby, finally! :D
