The Skinny on Villians





Have you guys ever wondered if anime villians were the real deal? Would a real life villian act like one of the baddies seen on your favorite show or in your favorite manga?

The bad guys in anime almost always have an insatiable ego to go with that thirst for power and/or bloodshed.
They are calm, collected, and almost surreal. Would any real life villian go about causing destruction in that egotistical surreal pompousness?

Well according to "Psychology Today" magazine, the answer is yes. According to their findings "violent criminals typically think more highly of themselves than most other people do. Aggression often occurs when someone challenges these favorable self views" (Psychology Today March/April 2010)

I'm not saying that a villian or bully in anime or in real life won't have a low self esteem because there are many that do. But the point is that those elite genius' that anime calls villians are as much the real deal psychologically as the villians that make our world the sucky place it is.

AN EVEN BETTER REASON FOR US TO BE LIKE OUR FAVORITE HERO IN ANIME, BECAUSE IN RETROSPECT THEY HAVE QUALITIES OF REAL LIFE HEROES.


Just don't bitch like Ichigo and please don't be like Renji, he is not even pictured...

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers



This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
