Group Dating in Japan - Gokon

In Japan part of the culture there is to do group dating or Gokon.

Where a group of male friends will go out with a group of female friends. Each group will sit across the table from one another. Usually they will talk amongst themselves about who they find attractive and then mingle afterwards. Unlike going to the club, the environment is set up so that you can easily get to know someone and usually is for the beginning of a long-term relationship.

They should do this in America too! The closest American equivalent is speed dating, which is also satirized in the media and television.

  1. They are doing this in America and Europe too! I've found a couple of websites who use a similar concept. I found it really cool.
    More information about this on wikipedia.



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!
