About Otaku Review

Thanks for your interest in learning more about OtakuReview.net! Otaku Review first opened on August 31st 2005 with a handful of anime reviews and an interview with a voice actress. For the first few months it was rough going as the editor in chief worked tirelessly on his own to create a place where fans and non-fans could converge and learn more about this strange thing called “anime”.

Over the years the site grew larger both in terms of content and influence eventually being recognized and cited by sites including Anime Vice, Japanator, Anime News Network, Huffington Post, NY Niche and has even been recognized internationally by Japanese newspaper, Sankei Shinbum.

In 2009 the editor in chief landed a job elsewhere and posts became fewer and fewer until 2011 when the site was put on a temporary hiatus. That was then and this is now though!

Three years later Otaku Review is back with a vengeance and is ready to do what it has always done which is provide everyone with a place where fans can get the best reviews, news and insights. We hope that you’ll stick around for the ride!
