Otakuzone on Cyberspace

For Malaysian anime/manga fans, Otakuzone is probably a familiar name, as it is one of the first columns in a national newspaper dedicated to anime/manga news and reviews. Over the past 3 years (or was it 4?), I have been a regular contributor and reviewer for the column.

The past month has seen quite a few changes to the column, with it being moved to Wednesday’s paper instead of Sunday’s and changed to bi-weekly as well. However, that doesn’t mean the column is being downsized! In fact, Otakuzone’s expanding now, by moving in to cyberspace with a twitter account, Facebook fan pages (official and unofficial) and a temporary blog (official blog coming soon) as well too!

For my international readers, now you can read my manga reviews over at the Otakuzone blog (which I don’t publish on here to avoid conflicts of interest). My first one for the blog just came up there in fact. Feel free to leave any comments or brickbats here or there. Constructive criticism is always welcome!

    No wonder something was missing from my weekly dose of Otakuzone…..

    Also, I think it has been for four years, ’cause I roughly remember that the first edition was in the same year as Animax (as well as my S.P.M.) premiering…..

    I was wondering why it went missing too…
    And yep, 4 years, it started somewhere in 2006.

    No wonder I can’t find the articles for several Sunday newspapers. Thanks for the info!
