The Unusual Tales of Friendship: Nakama no Suto ri

How'd you meet your best friend? How did you meet your closest friends? Did you make a friend application and fill it out with your info? Nah, I don't think people do that to make friends. Most of our friends, we met by random coincidence and/or chance(s). 

All it takes is to take a chance on someone to be their friend.

A weak person usually has less friends right? 
That's not true. 
A person has friends like themselves. And no one is truly weak.

What about anime? Well I learned from anime that friendship takes more of a chance than in real life, if the storylines were real life. I know you've all thought, what if anime was real? But I guess some of us want it to be... 

That's not the point. 
Like in One Piece, remember Zoro? 

Luffy had to practically beg him and vow to him that he'd help him escape just for him to consider joining his no-pirate-yet crew. But Luffy didn't lose hope... I hope that's not a spoiler, if it is you should really watch One Piece at some time in the future.

After that it seemed easier for Luffy to make Nakama/friends. Luffy passed the "first step" that they say is the hardest or most difficult. After that Luffy was way more confident in being himself and being a pirate! But his journey is still continuing, as the anime is still running and the manga is still being printed. 

Ok, enough One Piece...!
Then on the brighter, lighter side of life (slice of life/drama) anime you've got Ouran Host Club. 

Haruhi was a new student and she was pretty much all alone at her new school. Those are the hardest days for everyone, the first day of school. She made a mistake and suddenly she found herself with new "friends" at the school's male host club. It took her a long time to actually be friends with everone there which is part of why the anime is so good! It's a good watch for sentimental people and anyone who hasn't seen it before.

I think I'll stop with the examples, you're all seasoned Otaku, right? Sometimes it just seems difficult making a new friend in the real world but anime makes it seem possible. It's possible for anyone!

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!
