Welcome to the all-new, 100-percent-less-newspaper-affiliated Otaku Ohana! As always, I’m your friendly neighborhood otaku blogger, Jason Y.; over there playing Tsum Tsum (both regular and Marvel varieties!) and likely racking up three or four times the scores and coins I’m capable of garnering is longtime Tag-Team Partner in Fandom Wilma Win. The usual cast of characters and running gags are sticking around as well. (Aiea Library still does have plenty of parking, by the way.)
Please pardon our dust as we get settled and figure out the new toys we get to play with now that we have full control over our design and content. For starters, I think this part of the post is where I’m supposed to stick multiple garish “website under construction” animated GIFs.
(We are still under late-’90s web design protocol, right? No? Dang.)
In any case, we’re trying to look at and implement cool new features whenever we can find them and figure out what they do. You’ll notice one of those new features in the sidebar listed to the right (if you’re reading this on a computer, anyway) under “What’s Goin’ On?”: The Ota-cool Incoming Calendar is now an actual standing calendar. There are a number of events already populating it, from the imminent upcoming screenings of Shin Godzilla through Anime Ohana next October, and I’ll be updating and adding descriptions to the calendar as the information comes in to Otaku Ohana Central. (I’ll still be highlighting a few upcoming events here and there in blog posts, too.) You can find out a little bit about this blog in that section, too.
We’ve got a nice, spiffy new header image in the works, too. Hopefully we’ll be able to reveal that in the next week or so.
Now comes the hard part: figuring out how to fill this new space with the quality content you’ve come to expect from us over the years. Shouldn’t be a problem, of course. But new adventures always come with some degree of uncertainty, right?
