Shounen Jump

American printings of Shounen Jump have ended. What will become of the Shounen Jump franchise in America?

I'm sure more than a few of us American Otaku have collected Shounen Jump and many of us sport a large collection. Some of us just enjoy reading the manga and flipping from page to page. To all of us this is a huge blow, one more reputable anime magazine has been taken off the shelves.

However Shounen Jump boasts this as a new beginning and not the end. And I hate when people say stuff like that if you know what I mean.

Check out Shounen Jump Alpha, the new platform for Shounen Jump. What do you think about the new setup? Is it worth 25 dollars a year? And what are the secret member meeting that they're advertising?

I still don't believe it hype. In fact I wish they'd bring back the print editions and the last of the print editions have not even left the shelves yet....

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!
