Character Spotlight: Hououin Kyouma (Okabe Rintaro)

"Dr. Pepper is an intellectual experience..." 
The Great Hououin Kyouma endorses Dr. Pepper!

Hououin Kyouma is the most used alias of Okabe Rintaro.
"If you don't know, then memorize it. Ho-oh as in phoenix, In, the temple. Finally, the Kyou in atrocious becomes Ma in truth. Hououin Kyouma...!"

If you didn't know by now, Okabe Rintaro is a self-proclaimed mad scientist and the main character of Steins;Gate. He's obsessed with inventions, most notably the time machine.

Okabe has his own "lab" which is his apartment. Okabe recruits anyone with a curiosity about his lab and a problem that they need solved. He doesn't even try to analyze people before recruiting them, he just does it on a whim.
Okabe has said that he is in charge of protecting and helping each and every lab member. He genuinely cares for all of his lab members, as you'll see when you watch Steins;Gate. Only a person like Okabe could be the main character of an anime like Steins;Gate.

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!
