Hey everyone! Usually this is RPGHero's department but I felt compelled to make this! >:)

I hope everyone's had a wonderful Fourth of July! Remember--July 7th is Tanabata so don't forget to learn the song and sing it when the time comes! ^^

Alright, so let's move onto the post! :D

First we have two very interesting AMVs that I really liked:


AMV - Around The World

AMV - Do You Know Your Anime?


Next we have this Otaku Breakdancing video!  The whole story is pretty funny--see for yourself!

Next we have Tarako Tarako Tarako by Kigurumi! This song was released in June 2006 for "Q.P. Corporation's (Kabushikigaishu) spaghetti sauce" (source). This song has set a record for making it to the Top 100 Singles on the Oricon charts with such young performers! (source).

And now to break the record of the youngest performers on the Oricon charts come Kaoru and Tomoki. Together, in a viral song called "Maru Maru Mori Mori" which is the ending song to the very popular Japanese Drama (and by "very" I mean VERY--20% of the Japanese population is said to know it!!!) "Marumo no Okite", they have pushed up to #6 on the Oricon Charts!!!

Look at this quote from Wikipedia: 

"This singles album debuted on the Oricon charts at the 3rd position with sales of around 35 thousand albums a week. This makes the group Kaoru to Tomoki, Tamani Mook ( 薫と友樹、たまにムック Kaoru to Tomoki, tama ni mukku?) the youngest group ever to debut in the TOP10 charts at the average of 6 years old, beating the previous record set by the group Kigurumi ( キグルミ?) for their singles Tarako・Tarako・Tarako ( たらこ・たらこ・たらこ?) in September 2006."

And now for the song and dance! :)

There was an interesting news program on this as well:

And here's a fanmade version incase you feel like learning the dance =P.
And I thought this video was funny ^^.

And last but not least is the hilarious Mameshiba series!  It reminds me of Fireball (MAL) and they are totally worth watching!  There's 20 of them, so watch them all! >:).

"What exactly is Mameshiba?
They're not quite a bean, nor a dog
but rather a hybrid of both.
They love to appear out of nowhere
and offer random bits of trivia
whether you asked for it or not..."

Here is the first video (I will provide links to the rest of the series later--or you can just click the next episode from the related videos).

Entire Series:
(1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 16 - 17 - 18 - 19 - 20)

Well, I hope you've enjoyed my Random Videos post!

That's all for today!

Thanks for reading! ^^


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!
