Anime Secret Santa Review: Psycho-Pass

Sorry for the late review – it has been an even busier holiday season than usual, with multiple work and family commitments leading up through New Years even. Really tried to get this posted before the end of 2015, but unfortunately I couldn’t manage that. But here it is at last!

For the past few […]


Sorry, but my Anime Secret Santa 2015 review will be a bit delayed…

First of all, sorry for not putting a cool image along with this post. All of the blogging how-to sites say you should always put an image with your post, to attract readers’ attention, blah blah blah. But I can’t figure out how to do that with the WordPress mobile app. Unfortunately I’ve been incredibly […]


The 12 Days of Kurisumasu will be returning for 2015, albeit a bit late

Those of you who’ve been visiting this blog for some time are probably wondering where a certain something is. Namely, the 12 Days of Kurisumasu, that yearly tradition of ours that ostensibly is there to help give you gift ideas (either for other people or for yourself) but is in fact a thinly-veiled attempt to […]


The Anime Secret Santa Project returns for 2015!

It is Monday, October 12 as I write this, which means that we are, theoretically anyway, deep into fall, and will soon be thrust into winter. I say “theoretically” because, at least where I live, it sure as heck doesn’t feel like fall. We’ve been in a seemingly perpetual heat wave for the past few […]


Love Live! School Idol Festival Tips for New Players (Updated)

Update 10/11/2015: A few minor updates toward the end of the post.

Update: we’ve finally nailed down a time when we’re all able to get together and record our AX wrap-up of Doom. (Better late than never!) And I think (knock on wood) I’ve gotten to the bottom of my computer problems. So look forward […]


Poll: So, who’s your favorite µ’s member?

Well, it’s been something like over 9,000 years since our last poll, so I figured now would be a good time to have another one. And, in the spirit of yesterday’s Cool Find (which you really oughtta check out if you haven’t already) today’s poll is yet another one of those “Who’s your favorite (blah)?” […]


Cool Find: Love Live! School Idol Festival – a really cute (and fun!) rhythm game for iOS and Android

Unfortunately, due to further scheduling conflicts, and a suddenly-very-flaky computer (random spontaneous crashes, makes it really difficult to do stuff like record/edit audio and video) I still haven’t been able to get our AX 2015 coverage online. I’m hoping to have the computer problems sorted out soon, so that I can at least finish posting […]


Otaku no Podcast is now on Patreon; become a Patron & help us bring you a better blog & podcast!

I’ve been putting out this blog and podcast for over 8 years now, and in that time, I’ve had a lot of fun, met a lot of really cool people, and even managed to learn a thing or two. But it’s also left me with one major regret — not being able to bring great […]


Cool Find: Misheard Song Lyrics, Anime Style!

When listening to music, it’s not always easy to pick out what the artist is actually singing, even under the most ideal circumstances (i.e. when a singer isn’t shouting into his mike like they do in death metal or whatever.) Back in the good old days, one would have liner notes which often had the […]


We’re back from Anime Expo 2015; coverage to commence soon

This is just a quick update to let y’all know that, yes indeed, we are back from AX, and survived more or less unscathed. As always, the con had its ups and downs, but on balance we had a great time as always.

Ordinarily, we get together to record our giant review/wrap-up/opinions/etc. podcast session of […]
