Nicchiban is the premiere anime news and community website – from the same people that brought you Niche Gamer!

We provide fun daily content, memes, and comprehensive coverage of the latest and greatest anime, Asian culture, and more! We are the new enthusiast anime and Asian culture press, for the digital age.

We’re proud to be based out of Philadelphia – the birthplace of American freedom, although we cover games from all over the world. We are committed to bringing you original content, insightful opinions and the full and accurate news without any fluff or agendas.
