OTAQUEST is a new initiative aiming to deliver Japanese pop & subculture news and information directly to English-speaking audiences. With a team made up of global contributors and a home base in Japan, we’ll be delivering content and updates from all areas of the world. Regular features appearing on the site will include interviews with content creators, directors, and other industry leaders direct from Japan as well as editorial and video content focusing on unique and focused topics for the growing English-speaking fanbase.

Industry veterans Taku Takahashi (m-flo, block.fm, music producer for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, Space Dandy, and more) & Eddie Lehecka (Attack The Music, bemanistyle.com) have teamed up with the goal of making Japanese pop culture more accessible worldwide. Through their connection to the Japanese entertainment industry, we will be featuring exclusive content not available anywhere else. Additionally, we will be bringing some of these features to conventions around the United States so fans can have a real-time, interactive experience with their favorite creators & industry leaders.

“Through my many opportunities to perform at conventions and fan-oriented events in the United States and events worldwide I have felt a strong connection with lovers of Japanese culture everywhere. As a self-proclaimed “otaqu” I helped establish OTAQUEST with the goal of giving fans all around the world an opportunity to experience the best that Japan has to offer directly from the source. As our community of fans continues to grow we will push to give a positive impact, and I hope that you’ll join us on our journey!”
