Otherworld Otaku Blog was created as a way for us to express our passion for all things fantasy, scifi, and otaku. Our hope is to create a place for others with similar obsessions to share opinions, news, and offer suggestions on what to watch/read/create next! We are a husband-wife duo, so please allow us to introduce ourselves:
The original Otaku who works diligently at converting the world and opening eyes to the wonders of anime. I started watching anime in the late 80s/ early 90s on late night tv. Nothing dirty, I know that’s where your mind jumped. This is the only time anime aired back then. Stuff like Outlaw Star, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, and Mobile Suit Gundam. Recently, I’ve been interested in Gundam models, garage kits, and anime figures. I’ve experimented with painting some Gundams and am thinking of recasting some of the rare Gundams/figures I have found. Virgo, anyone?! Currently, you can find some of the items I’m selling on my ebay story Otherworld Otaku. In the future, I hope to have some of my original airbrush art and custom airbrush stencils up at the store, but you have to start somewhere.
Hajimemashite! (Japanese for ‘How do you do?’) I’m learning Japanese with the wish of someday using it for a trip to Japan. I am a writer, wife, cat mom, and fantasy lover. My full-time job also gives me a sick type of humor, so forgive me for that. I write in my spare time, writing novels and fanfiction. Three of my novels are historical fantasy/ genre fantasy and one was a sad attempt at supernatural fantasy. Three are resting in the darkness of my laptop hard drive and one was sent to oblivion. None are published, but you can read my fanfiction if you wish to torment yourself. Actually, I am quite proud of my King Arthur movie fanfiction, though it took a span of several years to finish. I’m thinking of adding a story of Akagami no Shirayukihime (Snow White with the Red Hair). Anyway, here’s a link to my fanfiction.net profile.
