The break didn't end :(

I just went on a tangeant looking for Japanese fan made videos... Can u believe this was made by fans... Just like when Chansu and I used to play arcade games against any person who looks remotely asian they're so skilled they make us regular gamers look bad.

Also this is a repost, Chansu posted this video a few months back...

Also times 2, if any sensible Japanese person looked at our blog they would wonder how I could pull off posting things about Cool Japan like that live concert by Shiina Ringo and then go Otaku and post these videos. Well... all I can say is that there is a difference between the in crowd in Japan and the Otaku (why would we choose a name siding with Otaku, the geeks of the Japanese nation??). Is there a such thing as American Otaku?? No just because there isn't a culture devoted to "serious" cartoons here. Well those people created Pokemon and made huge amounts of money overseas, and so they do have an important existence in Japan. And recently more otaku related things are becomming a part of "Cool Japan", a name for the music and cool culture of Japanese youth. That all may be discussed further in a later post.

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.
