About the Team

Project Otaku’s current staff includes some of the blogosphere’s most distinguished personalities, whose writing skills supercede any and all standards of excellence…

Ah, who am I kidding. Here’s some info on us :

a9cf2e94b34d0da0926a4950180c0377Erica Jenkinson  aka Mrs. Blunder (Co-founder, Site Manager and Owner of Project Otaku)

Gamer, writer, and anime lover. Self-proclaimed horror movie buff. Afflicted with a voice fetish and an overall strange person. These all describe Mrs Blunder. Oh, and apparently so does “Red” and “Boss Lady.” Follow her on Twitter @MrsBlunder or add her on steam!

Nelson Rolon aka Anime-Guardians (Co-founder)Santa

Busy bee from Brooklyn, getting an M.F.A. in TV Production. Likes his anime super serious, super artsy, super innovative, and super crazy. Check out his personal blog at Anime-Guardians.com, or hit him up on Twitter @AnimeGuardians; as a matter of fact, do both.

FrancisFrancis Nunez aka Xipher (Partner at Project Otaku; Founder of “Nerdy Enough” Podcast)

A die-hard anime and manga fan since he was able to read those subtitles. Been writing for various websites concerning anime and manga culture for the past four years – this qualifies him as an expert. Now he hosts his own podcast, where he debates topics ranging from video games, movies, TV, and of course anime and manga. Follow his podcast, Nerdy Enough, on soundcloud, iTunes (search for “Nerdy Enough”), and Facebook. Follow Francis on Twitter @tensec.

Silver Blaze (Editor and Reviewer)

First and foremost, this quirky gal’s a writer. Without writing, we’d probably have a mess of blood, skull, and brain matter to clean up, because her head would totes explode! Second to that comes her hobbies as a gamer and avid reader with an unending quest to find the greatest storylines ever. Unfortunately, most of the time it’s a harrowing journey full of thorn bushes and Mary Sues, but this lass just doesn’t give up hope! She’s a part-time novelist, part-time workshop leader, part-time blogger, and full time spaz.

will swansonSytar Embassy aka Will Swanson (Reviewer)

A full-blooded otaku for about four years now, after first watched the original Fullmetal Alchemist; since then, it’s been one endless quest for the next best anime. It’s a journey he walks as a cold wind grazes his cheek and the moon is his only light of hope (sounds mighty lonely to me. Someone give him a hug). He makes his aniblogging debut here at Project Otaku. Follow him on Twitter @SytarEmbassy.

Yorozuya-Tonychan aka Tony Yao (Writer)tony yao

TONY IS A GOD FROM NYC AND IS FULL OF RAGE! HIS LOVE OF ANIME CAME FROM THE DIRTY STREETS OF CHINATOWN WHEN WATCHING DBZ IN CHINESE. HE GREW TO LOVE THE WORLD OF OTAKU CULTURE SINCE THE EARLY ’90S. HE MUSES ABOUT MANGA AND PSYCHOLOGY AT MANGA THERAPY.

Blue (Reviewer)

Born with the Reading Steiner, Blue has traveled many world lines to find the best anime ever! Really! While searching, Blue passes his time by reviewing all anime that cross his path as he tries to spread the word of otaku-dom to the world. Follow the good word on twitter @DudasJay.

Xemness (Reviewer)

Xemness has always been an avid gamer. From the SNES to the PC, it’s his passion. At the top of the myriad games he plays comes RPGs, with racing games at the bottom. He’s also got a rather unhealthy addiction to League of Legends, apparently. Keeping it short, he finds that the best advice to give is to tell people to do what makes them happy! (What a nice guy!)

HelghastKillzoneHelghastKillzone (Writer and Managing Editor)

A Canadian living in the city of Vancouver, he enjoys all sorts of anime and games. From the trashy dumb shows to the deep and mature classics, he’ll take it all.
