- I thought I'd make this my last visit. Sorane-chan was my hope. She was all that I had. But apparently, she doesn't need me. Then there's no point in me coming here anymore.
- Could you sum all that up in a haiku?

Stories about socially unacceptable hobbies/subcultures/lifestyles too often fall into one of the two extremes. Type 1 is a true believer’s exercise in self-celebration, saccharine feel-good tales that gloss over any negativity, which you can take as either irresponsibly naive or maliciously whitewashed (e.g. Shirobako). Type 2 is “look at these dweebs” hot takes made by an outsider with the authenticity and subtlety of read more

“If My Favorite Pop Idol Made It to the Budokan, I Would Die”

That is the English title of the anime.
Somehow it sounds like a goal in your life, but certainly a weird one. I am a big idol fan myself, but I would never go that far and say this. There are "wotas" (=fans of Japanese idol singers) who would do everything for their favorite idol. They support them with everything they have and this is definitely something that should be respected. It is certainly unusual and hard to understand, especially in western culture. Nevertheless, it shows how much love the wotas give to their read more

Has anime gone to far? We got shows about card games, shows about cooking, sports anime, even anime about making anime, but I don’t think anyone ever thought there would be an anime about idol otaku. This show follows sweaty idol otakus on their quest to cheer for their chosen idol at every concert regardless of the personal consequences, the review below will expand on this.


Story: 5

The main character is named Eripiyo and she’s a huge idol otaku, specifically she follows a girl named Maina in an idol group known as Chamjam. Maina doesn’t have many fans and is generally overshadowed by read more

Oshi ga Budoukan scratches that need for a cute low stakes comedy romance that needs to be satisfied every so often. While making us squirm with love and adoration.

The biggest warning I can give before jumping into the deep end of this series is that you will cringe and squirm from the way our main character acts sometimes, but that isn’t a bad thing! The reason you’ll be squirming is because her love and adoration for Maina is so vast and deep that is definitely slips into obsession, knowing the feelings are rather mutual though makes it feel a lot better.

Another aspect of this show read more
