the Blog

The term “Tokyo Jupiter” refers to to the dome-shaped structure covering the southern region of the Kanto plain, centered at the surface coordinates of the Shrine of Xephon in Tokyo Bay. It encompasses a region corresponding to the old city of Tokyo and the capital territory around it. The external appearance of the dome’s surface, which has a horizontally flowing pattern of colored bands, strongly resembles the surface of the planet Jupiter. — Rahxephon Bible, 2001.

Tokyo Jupiter was registered in 2002 and was originally intended to be a fansite for the series Rahxephon. Since then, it’s become the space where I’ve grown up as an anime and manga fangirl. It’s been an anime blog, a couple of fansites, a doujinshi catalog, and a manga review site, among others.  This latest iteration is my attempt to return to the world of anime blogging. Watching anime just isn’t as fun if you can’t write a 1,000 word commentary about it.

  1. This is one fantastic blog that should gain more respect and be known widely. I’m totally sold on your post topics and I kinda want to go hide somewhere from the bar of intellect displayed here when I look back to my abilities…

    Added in the blogroll, soon on your comment section- I just need some time to read your treasure trove and I have to study for upcoming work, too :/

  2. I just found your blog because I wanted to educate myself more about Anime since I haven’t seen nearly enough of it and I’m an avid movie lover. The site looks great and I look forward to following, thank you!
    I’m not sure if it would even slightly interest you, but I have a movie blog that I’m proud of, and Anime was on my mind because I just saw and reviewed From Up On Poppy Hill, if you’d like to check out my review or my blog in general it’s:

    I’d be very curious what you think of that one post in particular. Regardless, thanks for your great-looking blog, I look forward to reading more!

    • Thanks for the comment (and follow!) I haven’t seen From Up on Poppy Hill yet, so I’m always curious about what other people have written about it so far. I hope that some of the series that I write about will interest you in watching a few more anime movies or series.

  3. It absolutely already has. I grew up watching a bit more (Ninja Scroll was a personal favorite, did you ever see that one?) but need to get back to some now.
    If you end up reading any of my blog, or that one post about the Miyazaki film, let me know what you think even if you haven’t seen the movie yet. 🙂

  4. Your blog used to be a fansite for RahXephon? How excellent–I’ve seen that series 2 times, and am so confused by the ending that I really have to go back and watch it again! I found you through Kairi @ LoQ, but your writing style is wonderful and eloquent–I’ll be checking back frequently! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. 🙂

    • Thank you very much! You’re very kind.

      Yeah, I’ve seen RahXephon only once all the way with a few of my favorite episodes watched a couple of times. I was attracted because of the pretty and now I’m sort of stuck with it, I guess.

  5. Hi Anna!

    I was wondering if you’d be interested in participating in a manga blogging tourney based on the Olympics.

    If you’d like more info about it you can check out our post at [http://mangaweekend.wordpress.com/2013/05/09/manga-weekend-hosts-manga-olympics-for-bloggers-mob-springsummer-2013-2/]

    Or you could e-mail us at mangaweekend[at]gmail.com if you want to find out more about it!

    Thank you for your time!

    • Thanks for thinking of me! I’m going to have to beg off this time around, since I’ll be travelling around the time of the Manga Olympics so I won’t even know if I’ll have internet access. I’ll be happy to promote the event and vote though. Good luck!

      • I’m so sorry for this late reply!!! Thank you so much for your consideration and I wish you safe and awesome travels! We’ll really appreciate your vote, so thank you!
