Sankaku Complex

Sankaku Complex

…Sankaku Complex… is intended to capture something of the relationship between anime, manga and games, as well as such media forms as eroge and the visual novel.

This website is perhaps one of THE sites to visit for Otaku.  While mostly adult in content, it provides articles, reviews and relevant information in the following categories:  Anime, Manga, Games, H, and Japan.  It can be as much of an enjoyable time-suck as 4chan is at times.  Their About page is dynamite too.

Danny Choo

Danny Choo resides in Tokyo and writes about life in Japan and subculture which includes anime, figurines, dolls, cosplay, games and everything else that comes under the genre. dannychoo.com is regularly featured in web, print and broadcast media such as CNN, BBC and G4TV.

Danny is regularly invited to speak at conferences around the world on the subject of his specialty which is Japanese subculture (Otaku) and Consumer Generated Media.

At this point I’m pondering if the man has a wiki page.  If not, he should have one. He certainly deserves it.  *checks*  No, he doesn’t.  No matter…

I was introduced to Danny via his dancing stormtrooper YouTube videos.

Danny has the ultimate Otaku life.  We all want it.  But because we cannot, he has blessed us with a plethora of material through which we can live vicariously through him.

Thank you, Danny!

Ponytale in LalaParadise

Boy’s Love Anime, Drama, Figure Reviews

This website is a wonderful resource for fujoshi and BL lovers.  If you cannot make a trip to Tokyo yet, and are chomping at the bit for some goods, this is an excellent page of resources.

I have personal experience (most of it positive) with most of these, and even developed my own system for buying the most goods for reasonable shipping!  Oh Otaku obsession.
