A Few Slices of Japan

Here are a few slices of Japan. So even if you're a first time visitor or one who's been checking us out to see if we're credible you'll find an informative and entertaining post right here!

A Japanese reality show travels to Akihabara to check out the Otaku culture there. It's interesting that even in Japan the culture that they have created seems foreign to some constituents of the same nation... Subbed in english.

The person in the Goku cosplay is none other than Patrick W. Galbraith the writer of "The Otaku Encyclopedia: An insider's guide to the subculture of Cool Japan". They are doing a segment on Maid Cafes in Akihabara. Check it out to get a glimpse into how a real Maid Cafe works! Should they have Maid Cafes in America?....

And my third video is from Ken Tanaka. A caucasian man who was raised in Japan, so english is his second language. He disabled embedding so follow the url and check out his vlog on the Tokyo ComicCon!

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.
