To create an inclusive and welcoming online community for fans of Japanese entertainment.
What is Drama-Otaku?
A platform and online community built from the ground up for Japanese Entertainment fans and fansubbers alike.
- Major mainstream sites focus on Korean entertainment and this has drowned out Japanese entertainment.
- “Owners/entrepreneurs” who have no vested interest in the Japanese entertainment domain or its fans.
- Platforms hacked and built upon forums and wikis are outdated, hard to maintain, and aren’t user-friendly.
- Restrictive online communities that are unwelcoming.
- Focus on Japanese dramas, movies, and specials.
- We love Japanese entertainment! Some of us have been fans since high school–that means decades of passion for J-ent!
- Built a platform from the ground up with requirements from fans and fansubbers.
- Strive to create an online community that follows a simple rule: Treat others how you wanted to be treated.
How it happened
What happens when a site you called home is turned over to an unnamed proprietor, with no vested interest in the Japanese Entertainment domain? You get a group of fans and fansubbers who rally through a traumatic event (on Discord) and decide to rebuild a site from the ground up! This is how Drama-Otaku.com was born.
