Anime Letter of Recommendation: xxxHolic


Bringing a new meaning to the words I Own You Boy...
(not a direct quote)

Watanuki is a high schooler who can see spirits and monsters that are otherwise invisible to the normal eye. Though he's been seeing them all his life he's always frightened when they start to chase him around. One day while running from the monsters he stumbles onto the property of a Fortune teller. He's mysteriously drawn into her shop and cannot control himself to leave. The Fortune teller, Yuki, meets with him and she tells him she's running a wish granting shop and he must have business at her shop, because "There's no such thing as coincidences". He tells her it would be nice not the see the monsters any more and he ends up with a part-time job at her shop, using his ability to see monsters instead of getting rid of it and, more importantly to Yuki, being her personal butler... Oh and he's got a crush on a girl in his class plus there's a pretty boy who's presence threatens to steal her away. They become integral parts of Watanuki's destiny!

Watch if you dare! But watch the Kei version after the regular version because Kei is the sequel.

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!
