Mission of Otaku Crossing!


1. Help support language study for both Japanese and English learners! We feel like we’ll be able to help facilitate this because our blog posts will be written in colloquial English and colloquial Japanese. In other words, you’ll be seeing both languages how they are *actually* used!
2. Inform Japanese fans about how Japanese anime and manga is received in other cultures.
3. Inform foreign fans of what Japanese fans in their favorite fandoms are up to.
4. Use the information to help facilitate global interaction between fans of the same anime and manga! We want to help fans learn about each other, and hope that more global fans will come to sightsee and participate in Japan!
5. We hope that by sharing information that is easily available to Japanese fans, we can reduce the distance between the Japanese anime and manga industry and its foreign fans.
