Things We Saw Around The Web is more than just funny lolz we see while browsing online; it’s a compilation of videos, news, and articles written by fans in the Japanese culture community. We would love to bring more focus to small blogs & YouTube channels and their creative works, so if you know a great article/video you would like to see in our next roundup, please leave a link in the comments below.

“Early in 2018, a permanent Pokémon Café opened in Tokyo, and I was lucky enough to be able to visit it when I was in Japan! It’s been just about a year since I went, but I’m finally getting around to sharing my impressions… with lots of photos, of course!”
Starting today, we’ll be rolling out “The Skye’s The Limit” – a travelogue and journal for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. In this, I’ll be writing my experiences with the game, while explaining things like where to go, where to find really weirdly particular things, and so on. There will be a few narrative and literary elements, in a way to kind of tie the whole “travelogue” idea together, which may or may not remain, depending on the feedback.
