“Otaku Warriors for Liberty and Self-Respect”

Yes, I am currently an OWLS member!

Here is my bio:

I’m Takuto, your host at my Anime Cafe! Though only a teenager, I enjoy watching anime and then reviewing my thoughts over them. According to my Twitter bio, I’m also apparently a humble artist, mild cosplayer, and one “relatable mate.”

Within my reviews and discussions, I weave together themes and tips to combating the dark realities of the human experience. Because positivity is key, I quickly found myself joining OWLS, and have happily stuck with them since the beginning. Through OWLS, I’ve learned that it is only by understanding and appreciating ourselves can we truly learn to understand others!

So let’s sit down together, enjoy some coffee, and casually talk about how to make our lives better~

Visit the main OWLS site here for more info.

We are a group of otaku bloggers who promotes acceptance of all individuals regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and disability. We emphasize the importance of respect, kindness, and tolerance to every human being.


Blog tours are our main method of raising awareness for our cause. We, the members, show our solidarity by writing individual posts about a relevant topic and publishing them on our own blogs according to our appointed tour stops. All members are encouraged to participate.
