::: When They Cry, Halloween だ!:::

Hey everyone,

I'd like to wish you all a spooky H
alloween! :D

What? You're not freaked out today? Well we have some work to do don't we?

Let's start with the scariest type of anime character in my opinion: Yandere!

What is a Yandere exactly?

Well, in the same way a Tsundere character is sometimes loving but most of the time combative, a Yandere character is sometimes loving but most of the time extremely violent and scary. The word Yandere comes from yan (ヤン) meaning a mental or emotional illness and dere (デレ) meaning to show affection.

If you haven't seen a yandere in action then you're in a loss. The energy that comes from a yandere is often very thrilling. It's time to show you what that's like...

So to the left you see the group from Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni. Seems peaceful doesn't it? But what happens when you go into Mion's torture chamber or give Rena a cleaver? Get my point? =P

Higurashi is a part of the When They Cry series. It is truly a masterpiece and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a thrilling mystery suspense horror anime. Behind the thrill of the yandere characters actually lies a very well done theme of friendship. The second season adds a genius twist to it. Can you figure out the mystery before the answer is revealed?

In an even tougher anime to crack is Umineko no Naku Koro Ni--which is also a part of the When They Cry series.

The visual novels have been highly acclaimed and people everywhere are trying to figure out the mystery. The visual novels have not been completed yet but there are only 1 or 2 more volumes to go. If you're interested in a logic vs. magic mystery then I highly recommend this to you.

Well that's all for today! Hope you have nightmares! (mwuahahaha)

P.S. (Watch your step--they're watching...)

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!
