About Yatta-Tachi

Hello, friends!

Welcome to the Yatta-Tachi Patreon! We are excited to see you! We're a ragtag group of content creators that focus on various subjects in Japanese pop culture, including anime, manga, video games, movies, and events. We have been creating accessible & inclusive Japanese Pop Culture related content & resources since May 2015.

For the last 7+ years, we have been a volunteer-based site, but with your help, we want to transform it into a full-fledged paying opportunity that compensates our creators for their hard work.

As a matter of fact, we are already on our way!

Since March 2022, we have been paying our contributors and staff for their time and effort. With your help, we can work on increasing the pay for all creators, expand on our articles, and more! We also want to branch out into other forms of media, such as videos, podcasts, and live streams.


LTDR: We need to raise at least $600 per month to run Yatta-Tachi & pay everyone for their contributions. If not, we will have to scale down until we will ultimately have to close down either temporarily or permanently.

What Yatta-Tachi Currently Offers:

About Yatta-Tachi

Founded in May 2015 by Katy Castillo and a group of folks from around the world, Yatta-Tachi is a multi-faceted content creating site that focuses on Japanese pop culture.

Our Content

Represents a diversity of views on Japan and its pop culture such as (but not limited to): anime, manga, lifestyle, conventions, events, etc. Our content is easy to digest, staying away from technical jargon that would shy away new readers wanting to learn more about Japan, while not boring seasoned readers. We strive to support writers who need that little breakthrough to get their name out there.

Our Tone

Is friendly, informative, upbeat, pun-y, optimistic, open-minded, accessible, LGBTQIA+ friendly 🌈, and professional. Our articles are written to be insightful, but not a snore-fest. We approach all our topics as fans, not critics. We all learn through each other’s articles and celebrate each other’s success.

Our Purpose

Is to promote Japanese pop culture through articles written by fans for fans and to have fun working with other people around the world who share the same views and excitement.

Other Ways To Support

If you do not have the ability to commit to helping us out month-to-month, we also have a Ko-FiPaypal account as well. A small or large donation is greatly appreciated. Ko-Fi also allows you to donate month per month as well, so if easier for you and you’re okay with not receiving any perks, you’re welcome to do so.

We are also part of several affiliate programs such as RightStufHumble Bundle. When you’re shopping online, please consider using our affiliate links. It’s not an extra cost to you and we receive a small commission, so basically you’re helping us for free just by ordering online.

All of this and more are available on our Help Support Us Page!
