Looking for the Twilight Zone in Anime??

Konbanwa fellow otaku. RPGHero here, reporting from... The Twilight Zone.

Just kidding haha.

I know there are many many of us out there who are fans of science fiction. This is a weird world we live in, however only weird in a bad way. But the stories of science fiction are strangely different, like the remedy. How many of you have played Chrono Cross?

and liked the feeling of being a teenager who traveled to his own parallel universe and fixed the distortion to boot?

Well we all like our share of science fiction... Just think about all of the science fiction based titles out there.

There's "Full Metal Alchemist"

Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood is an awesome series and there are many elements of science fiction within. In the new Brotherhood series they are still dealing with alchemy and a philosopher's stone that can do any alchemy. However all of the Humunculi come from an entity that decided it wanted to become a perfect existence. Definitely sci-fi masterpiece worthy.

Then "Chobits"

One big thing about the future is the possibility of humanoid robots that will begin to have emotions. This is the theme of chobits!

If you like Chobits then you'll like "Time of Eve"

Time of Eve is like Chobits but the emotional intelligence needed to watch and comprehend the plot is alittle bit higher. For older viewers only because prejudice is more of a theme mixed in with the humanoid robot theory.

If you haven't watched "Akira" you should either watch it now or stop being a serious anime fan

Akira is a sci fi movie with different themes, basically ESP and a futuristic setting. This is definitely for older audiences because of the graphic and darker quality of the plot. But it is an anime masterpiece and is acclaimed by the industry and by otaku at large!

Two words "Cowboy Bebop"

If Akira is a masterpiece than Cowboy Bebop is in the same league if not higher! Sci fi? Yes, Futuristic. Want to visit Mars and see the skyline at night? Look no further. This show is one for everyone's personal collection. Definitely buy it because every show involves themes that every educated otaku can take to heart!

Other titles you must check out are "Ghost in a Shell", "Paprika", "Code Geass", "Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and "Final Fantasy Spirits Within", etc.

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!
