Wouldn't it be great to have an Otaku President?

 In Japan, the previous Prime Minister considered himself an Otaku! ^-^

Taro Aso was the previous Prime Minister of

He is quoted on saying that manga could become Japan's bridge to the world!

 Thousands upon thousands of people in the USA go to anime conventions every year.

What attracts so many people to this Japanese artform?

Manga and anime are representations of the essence of the Japanese people. Other than cool fight scenes and girls of moe, the importance concepts of Friendship, Effort, Victory, and others like caring and harmony come to mind.

As a self-proclaimed otaku, I support anime and manga.

I too think that it's a bridge from Japan to the world. To think, that three students in America would band together to make a blog called the Otaku Reviewers and review anime, manga, music, and video games... And there are many other enthusiasts in America.

The idealism, positivity, courage and optimism in manga is what bridges nations. I know I feel indebted to such a great nation for a truly great artform!

Please keep Japan in your thoughts and prayers!
So far about 98,562 people have donated over $6,067,116 in American aid to Japan!


  1. I agree,hmm.. it would be a lot of fun! ^^
    Is he really holding that (Haruhi) manga? or its just photoshoped?

  2. Yeah it would ^^
    That picture was shopped :(
    But there are numerous accounts of Taro reading manga at the airport. They say is favorite is Rozen Maiden lol but I don't know if it's true.



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!
