Japanese Engrish (English) The "MOTHER" of Japanese Engrish sites! An inspiration to us all. Steve coined the word "Engrish" back in 1996, and was the first to use it for entertainment purposes. His site has received over 220,000 hits from visitors! Steve is da MAN!!!

What's in a name?
"The Japanese Animation Super Premier Entertainment Review"
Being Japanophiles of a combined 25+ years, we wanted a really good acronym that expressed our obsession/passion towards Japanese culture as a whole. This has transcended the original allure of Anime (Japanese animation) and extended into a general appreciation of the culture. From the food, to the language... we are more familiar with J-Pop than most native Japanese we are associated with :-) We wanted a name that was befitting our overall Japanesque.
