Tropes Turned Real

For popular anime/tv tropes that need some realistic pzazz

"I can do anything, better than you"
Ergggh, Gary wanted Bulbasaur!!! ...but didn't get one.
Such a trope, invites the watcher to put themselves in the shoes of an extremely jealous rival or enemy. And, that means you're always in the middle of a bad argument with a immature hyper childlike person...

"I can't do anything right"
Not Nagisa, ...Tomoya
When the main character bemoans and wails over an imagined lack of ability or reality that they are the best. They sure said it correctly. Then again, it's pretty sad when they doubt themselves in the midst of worse characters.

"Back to back, the 100 to 2 fight"
Seen in various shounen anime like Rurouni Kenshin and Yu Yu Hakusho. Also, seen in school age kids at recess and also around bedtime when its time to turn off the lights. Go to sleep kid...

"Normal, average friendly royal elite"
Genkai isn't really elite, but she is super strong and nice once she knows Yusuke...
Seen in various types of anime... Where the most popular, most elite, most upper class persona is actually a friendly person. ...Where you see friends, they see friends too!

That's all, now get off my porch you darn' kids!

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!
