The term “Tokyo Jupiter” refers to to the dome-shaped structure covering the southern region of the Kanto plain, centered at the surface coordinates of the Shrine of Xephon in Tokyo Bay. It encompasses a region corresponding to the old city of Tokyo and the capital territory around it. The external appearance of the dome’s surface, which has a horizontally flowing pattern of colored bands, strongly resembles the surface of the planet Jupiter. — Rahxephon Bible, 2001.

Tokyo Jupiter was registered in 2002 and was originally intended to be a fansite for the series Rahxephon. Since then, it’s become the space where I’ve grown up as an anime and manga fangirl. It’s been an anime blog, a couple of fansites, a doujinshi catalog, and a manga review site, among others.  This latest iteration is my attempt to return to the world of anime blogging. Watching anime just isn’t as fun if you can’t write a 1,000 word commentary about it.
