Jan Otaku- Jan is a college student residing is California with her overbearing cat and insufferable family. Favorite series include Escaflowne, Berserk, His and Her Circumstances, Kodomo no Omacha, Marmalade Boy and anything by Clamp. If the doujinshi world would spontaneously explode with Dark Schneider and Karlo dj she would just about die from happiness.
Jason- With an open mind and a wide variety of tastes, Jason's current favorites include Utena, Evangelion, Yu Yu Hakusho, Weiss Kreuz, Nadesico, Rurouni Kenshin, Kodomo no Omacho, among long lists of others. While he normally buys fan doujinshi, he's beginning to venture into original doujinshi and fandom as his sister and friends have begun creating them. He enjoys everything from straight, yaoi, yuri, hentai and nonhentai and teases that people can never believe a straight guy likes yaoi.
This month Jason reviews Weisse Shokolade.

Rae- About herself, Rae says: "Konnichiwa minnasan! Being fairly literate, interested in anime/manga and possessing a meager (very meager) drawing talent, are my only qualifications for reviewing. So, believing anything I say is probably a bad idea. However, I someday hope to start my own comic book publishing company. Why I'm telling you this, I don't know. Anyway, I have to go, my characters are calling, and they can be such a demanding lot. Dewamata!" Contrary to Rae's own statement, the humble admin of this site has to say that Rae writes lovely and well-considered reviews, and is more than a qualified reviewer.
This month Rae reviews Fire Flowers & Retsujo.
