Japanamaniac, n.

An endearing term for an individual who is passionate about Japanese culture, anime, and tabletop gaming – others tend to describe Japanamaniacs as ‘weird’ or ‘off-putting’...

Little do they know, there are thousands of us! ;)

The Original Japanimaniacs

What do you get when you mix an ex-comic book store owner turned anime convert, a Maid of Many Hats, and a Japanese-to-English translator otherwise known as ‘Babblefish’?

Answer: Team Japanime.

Though from wildly different backgrounds, we all have at least one thing in common – we’re crazy about tabletop gaming.

The fun. The connection with each other. The belonging.

Our Fan Favorites

Fight sinister forces in Kamigami Battles. Conquer the throne in Heart of Crown. Or become Master of the House in Tanto Cuore.

Gaming Together

We believe that the best games are created by those who are going to play them.

So, just as our Japanamaniacs let us know which games they love to play the most, they also help us shape the games they want to play the most.

From concept to reality, together we create the future of Japanime tabletop gaming.
