We are your typical group of people sharing their interests in the culture we are part of.

Here’s to the Philippine Otaku community. The cool guys, the veterans, the outsiders. Those who like Anime, Manga, and Cosplay. Those who deviate from the normality even just for once in their lives.

As everyone celebrates their Otaku lifestyles – watching Anime, reading Manga, talking about their favorite Cosplayers – we’re here to list it.

Deremoe Homepage as of January 20, 2014

Deremoe is a blog made and written by Filipinos that aims to be a destination for discussion of opinions and commentary for the Otaku community in the Philippines.

We focus mainly on reviewing Japanese Visual Media – Anime and Manga - as well as Games, Cosplay and Events.

Established in 16 April 2010, the project started with just eight staff members and is first hosted on WordPress.com.

pronouncation: de-re-mo-e(h).

What’s with the name? The name was derived from a weak and rough translation pun of “youthful sweetness.”

This project was inspired by local websites such as BlogWatch and Philippine Online Chronicles; and anime blogs such as Project Haruhi, Random Curiosity, and the now-defunct Megane Pirates. With the usage of the communication tool, Twitter, the group was formed and conceptualized.

What makes us different

Being Vocal: We have our own individual voices that we use to share our sentiments regarding the latest issues in the Otaku community.

Different Perspectives: We provide our readers extensive analysis with out-of-the-box perspectives, especially on issues concerning the local community. We blog on issues, topics or concerns that aren’t discussed on other blogs.

What we do best

Anime Statistics: We gather info about each anime season and we tally which voice actors, directors, scriptwriters and broadcasters in Japan has most roles for each season since Winter 2012.

Anime Blogging (Episodics): We are an Anime blog from the roots, and we blog About most, if not all, anime series since our inception.

The Roundtable Otakus Podcast: “We don’t just share the news, we talk about it.” –  Deremoe’s flagship podcast that talks about anything and everything related to the Philippine Otaku community.

The Events Chart: For the events goers. Look up an event and share it with your friends. You can even share the best moments you’ve had while you’re there. We’re making this possible so that you can have more choices in choosing your events, whether if it’t near your neck of the woods or far from where you could imagine an event will be.
