:::Shiyu-chan's Debut:::

Finally--what you've all been waiting for!  Shiyu-chan has officially appeared as our mascot in full color!  Help her level up on the sidebar to show your support! :)

Shiyu-chan is a tsundere character and what you see before you is the tsuntsun side of course ^^.  Chansu and I created it together--he did the sketch and I did the color.  We hope you all like her because you'll be seeing her for a while!

As you may already know, moving to .com was part 1 of our Website Revamp.  And now this is part 2!

Stay tuned for more updates!

Oh, it seems deredere Shiyu-chan has a message for you all:
"Yoroshiku ne ;)"

And now Shiyu's journey from pencil to pixels:

The sketch:

The re-trace using Photoshop's pen tool (Left). 
The completely colored/finished product (Right).

Let us know what you think in the comments!  Keep in mind this was my our first animation project and that I animated it with a mouse (Must. Get. Digital Drawing Tablet...)

Thanks :)

Well that's all for now!

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!
