Hey guys! I’m so glad you have all been following my posts here! It’s been a blast! But I finally decided to get my own domain so I could personalize my site the way I wanted to! I’ve moved all of the reviews already and over the next few days I will be moving the rest of the posts. Come check me out at dokidokiotaku.com! I can’t wait to see you all there! Have a great day!

Welcome to Doki-Doki Otaku! Here you will find reviews of anime, graphic novels, books and video/mobile games from me as well as playthroughs for video games and possibly episode by episode updates of anime as I watch them!
I decided to start up this blog so that I could share my opinions on certain things with the world. I am by no means a professional writer or blogger. This is solely for fun.
First, though, a little about myself. I am a stay at home mother to one. (Anime mom, weird right?) I have been enjoying anime almost my entire life, starting with Sailor Moon (that original English dub that everyone thought was terrible!) and quickly branching out to things like the Tenchi series and Miyazaki’s movies. My favorite anime genres are harem and slice of life but that does not mean that I limit myself to only these genres. I can’t really say that I have one specific favorite anime but some of my favorites include: Clannad, Lucky Star, Toradora, and Death Note.
My video game playing days came shortly before my anime watching days, however, and I started off with Super Mario World on the SNES. I prefer JRPGs and RPGs but I play other games as well. My favorite games include Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VIII, Super Mario World and Harvest Moon 64. More recently though, I’ve been playing Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Destiny and Splatoon.
As for manga, I didn’t start reading manga until later on in high school, probably halfway through my junior year. The reason for this is that it was not readily available to me. However, I was lucky enough to have a few friends who let me borrow volumes of manga that they owned. Now I own several boxes full of manga myself.
I hope that you will enjoy my posts as much as I will enjoy creating them!
And remember, everyone has a little otaku in them!
Hi, hi! Welcome to another Twintail Tuesday!
Hi, hi! Welcome to another Twintail Tuesday!
Hi, hi! Welcome to Throwback Thursday! I thought it would be a cool idea to make posts about older anime that some people may not know about! I decided to start today off with the first anime that I ever watched-Sailor Moon!
Sailor Moon also know as Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn, Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon started as a manga series by Naoko Takeuchi and was originally published in Nakayoshi. It has since aired as a television series from 1992-1997 and has recently been rebooted as Sailor Moon Crystal, there are also 3 movies, Sailor V manga, musicals, video games, card games, figures, etc.
There were some issues with the western releases of the original series however, for instance, the love scenes between Haruka and Michiru were taken out and they were depicted as cousins rather than lovers and there was an entire season that was not allowed to air here in America.
Sailor Moon is about a group of girls, known as the Sailor Scouts or the Sailor Senshi, who team up to save the world from various evil doers. The Sailor Scouts consist of the ‘Inner Senshi’ and the ‘Outer Senshi’.
The Inner Senshi include:
Usagi (Serena) Tsukino- Sailor Moon
Minako (Mina) Aino- Sailor Venus
Ami (Amy) Mizuno- Sailor Mercury
Rei (Raye) Hino- Sailor Mars
Makoto (Lita) Kino- Sailor Jupiter
Chibiusa (Rini)- Sailor Chibi (Mini) Moon
The Outer Senshi include:
Meioh (Trista) Setsuna- Sailor Pluto
Haruka (Amara) Tenoh- Sailor Uranus
Michiru (Michelle) Kaioh- Sailor Neptune
Hotaru Tomoe- Sailor Saturn
The series revolves around the inner senshi and the outer senshi come in at various times to help out.
There is a lot to this series and I won’t go into all of the details in this particular post but if you enjoy magical girl anime, I highly recommend checking Sailor Moon out. Personally though, I prefer the original. I feel that the art style of Sailor Moon Crystal did not fit the personality of Usagi at all. I’ve only seen the first few episodes of Crystal so far because I’m having a hard time getting past that aspect.
Thanks for reading! Tell me what you think of Sailor Moon Crystal so far! ^_^ Let me know here or on facebook!
I’ve decided to switch it up a bit from my Monday/Wednesday posts and I’ve decided to do some Tuesday/Thursday posts for a while now that I can post without issues ^_^

Hi, hi! Welcome to another Waifu Wednesday! Today’s waifu is Fujibayashi Kyou from Clannad!
I honestly didn’t like Kyou very much in the beginning. I liked her a bit more as the anime went on and then after I watched her special episode and played her route in the visual novel, I fell in love with her. She’s fantastic!
Hi, hi! Welcome to another Magical Girl Monday!!
