How We Started: 

We are three nerds of a kind. Together we would find ourselves having long drawn out conversations (or arguments) about TV shows, different anime and manga, or books that we’ve read. Usually these discussions/debates would go on for hours.  Many times they would go on until the next day. Not only did we have these discussions between each other, but we found that many of our friends also spent a lot of time talking to us about it too.

So we decided…nerds and geeks unite!! And created a healthy medium for fans like us to discuss and/or debate topics of interest relating to what we enjoy most.

Why RiceBall? 

We are dedicated Japanese anime fans. Just like American TV there are so many different genres to anime. However, regardless of these differences, the rice ball always seems to remain constant. It is the one thing in each show that is universally there. They may seem small and insignificant to the story, but its purpose is culturally relevant. Rice balls come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and may even taste different from ball to ball, but no matter what they look or taste like, they’re there, always on the journey, sustaining the lives of our beloved characters.

This is what we hope to bring here. Different opinions and perspectives about today’s nerd culture that’s shared by a variety of fans, just like you. We all may look different and have dissimilar views, but at the end of the day, our devoted interest to fandom binds us and ensures these art forms thrive.

WE are RiceBalls. So as we watch, read, or play, let’s discuss. From a fan to a fan, grab a rice ball. It’s time to feed your inner nerd.
