JRPG: Caption Caution

Technically speaking, the Pokemon card game was the most popular RPG card game and trading card game. Each type of card had its own HP, MP, and strategic moves. The play pitted one person's Pokemon against the playable traits of the other person's hand. With dice and special pieces, there were the additions of ailments or powers. It was one of the best RPG and there were mall tournaments all across Japan and North America where enthusiasts played their custom deck against others. A true RPG is one that can be played slower, like cards. Maybe one that can be played fast or real time, reminiscent of Kingdom Hearts or SMRPG. Those games didn't allow reaction time errors on the level of milliseconds, maybe more mechanically in SMRPG.

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.
