Irasshai! Thanks for stopping by! We are serious fans of All Things Japan: the people, the food, the language, the culture…and the animation. There’s nothing quite like anime. So one day we decided to start writing reviews of the anime series we happened to be watching – and compiling color-coded ratings – for our own enjoyment – and RABUJOI was born. That’s what you’ll still find here: anime reviews, ratings, and charts.
