About Ri Hiroshi (me)

こんにちわ みなさん! (Hello Everyone)

My name is Hiroshi, I am an all around typical nerd/otaku.  I love everything nerdy; technology, games, cartoon/anime, comic/manga, movies, tv shows, books, you name it.  I was born in Taipei Taiwan in 1991 and lived there till 2000 before moving to the United State to study.  I began Blogging back in 2008 and was mainly influenced by Danny Choo, the owner of

What is on the Blog?

Anything I find interesting and otaku/nerd related.

  • Anime News/Reviews
  • Manga News/Reviews
  • My “secret” otaku life
  • Toy/Figure review/rant
  • Western Cartoons/Scifi series (mainly Doctor Who)
  • And basically anything that interests me (^_^)

Why is the blog called “My Secret Otaku Life”?

The reason why I named my blog My Secret Otaku Life is because, unlike a lot of otaku out there who are very open about their hobbies, I am not.  In fact, it was only recently when I started collecting 2D girl figures that my family notice I’m an Otaku.  None of my friends knew about my interest with the otaku world except that ones who are hardcore like me.  So the name of the blog is actually the way I live my otaku life, which is in secret…in case you still don’t get it…


I love Japanese figures!  Here is my current favor.

Censor Mascot

This creature is Neko Meow, nickname Neo, that I designed for the purpose of censoring inappropriate images that I sometime use on this site.  I also uses him as my icon since he is the first original character I created.

This is Hentai Ninja, a second mascot that I created after Neko Meow.
