The weird world of Japanese anime figures, 3

Not quite Japanese anime, but they are figures, and they are from Japan. Who even knows who these characters are??

So besides massive success of Avengers in Japan, and Kingdom Hearts III potentially adding some Goerge Lucas and Marvel goodness to their repertoire, there are also figures (figma even) of some amazing Disney + Marvel figures going on. Check them out!

Darth Vader Samurai?! This figure is sold at J-List. our unofficial partner. Feel free to browse their wares and other Star Wars goods they have on sale!

Thor and Captain America Figma poses, just like the Japanese like them.

Does the pure hubris of Iron Man resonate with the Japanese psyche? 

What do you think? Where does American cartoonage/comics come into play in the Japanese world? Are you a weeaboo or a westaboo? Only time can tell...

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!
