Fujinsei is an entertainment blog featuring the fantastic world of anime, manga and other Japanese media, with focus on otaku fan culture. The word fujinsei is a melding of the words fujin (婦人 / lady) and jinsei (人生 / life).  If you are male, fret not, because Fujinsei is not exclusively for the ladies, despite of what the title suggests.  It is for all amateur, self-proclaimed, and certified otaku in the world.

About Arria Cross


Arria Cross is the blogger-founder of Fujinsei. One of the lucky ones who grew up watching anime with family and friends, she’s a proud otaku. That’s why she’s delighted to be a part of Otaku Warriors for Liberty & Self-Respect (OWLS) as the group’s Secretary. She’s a founding member alongside some of her awesome blogger friends, and the one who named OWLS and picked the motto “Free to be ME”. She is always struggling to find the right balance between being a vampiric hermit and a responsible member of society. Probably a cat in a human body, she is ever curious and playful, likes to follow her own pace, and will likely scratch your face off if you rub her the wrong way, but of course you’ll end up forgiving her because she’s just so charming. She invites you to explore Fujinsei to your heart’s content, where she encourages you to embrace your inner otaku without shame and to befriend other like-minded people, making the fandom even more fun, awesome, and accepting.
