Anime Review: Vandread

 Anime Review!
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Men are from Mars and women are from Venus". If you like any part of that phrase, you should watch Vandread. In Vandread men and women live on two different planets in space and hate each other! It all begins when three peculiar guys get caught by a pirate ship, from Mujer the planet of women. Oh and there's giant mechs like in Gundam! And then it all gets better from there!

The male planet of Taraq values manly qualities
Like toughness, valor, honor, honesty,
endurance, and strength.

The main character, Hibiki, pictured above becomes the hero of the ship, just like in any other giant mech show. However he can only unleash his full power when his ship is "combined" with a female ship and a girl is sitting on his lap! Now isn't that ecchi!
The female planet, Mujer, is more in tune
with feminine qualities like harmony
and resilience. And don't forget good
old female scorn.

This show has a lot of hidden sexual tension within it. It's a great show to watch after a long day at work or school. I have to admit that the battles are anti-climactic and boring. But the plot is reasonable and will keep you watching, if only to see how much men get to know the women and vice versa.                                                                This show is on netflix!

I recommend it, but you'll have to see for yourself.

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.
