Eigapedia was originally launched in July 2006 as a Japanese movie review blog called Nippon Cinema. Over time, it's gradually expanded to include movie trailers, news about upcoming movies from Japan, and a Japanese film industry database. The domain name was changed from nipponcinema.com to eigapedia.com on December 7, 2013.
If there's one main purpose of the site, it's to make information about Japanese movies more readily accessible to western fans with an emphasis on modern live-action films, which have been often been neglected in favor of anime and "golden age" feature films from the 50s and early 60s.
If you'd like to see your ads featured on the Eigapedia, the easiest way would be to set up a site-targeted campaign on Google AdWords.
Eigapedia is currently hosted across two self-managed Linodes running a LEMP stack under Ubuntu Linux.
In order to maintain a responsive and somewhat uniform layout across all screen widths and devices, the site is designed around the Bootstrap framework using mostly predefined CSS classes and components.
All movie trailers and movie-related images on this site are the property of their respective copyright holders. It's my sincere belief that their usage on this site falls within the fair use doctrine of US copyright law and helps promote general awareness of the movies covered. If any copyright holder would like something removed for any reason, please contact me directly with details and I'll do my best to comply promptly. Note that it's completely unnecessary to include a bunch of legal threats typed in all caps while doing so. Your unfrozen caveman lawyer's services will not be required.
All written content on this site is original work by me unless explicitly labeled otherwise. If you use my write-ups for your own blog, YouTube video descriptions, or any other website you write for, all I ask is that you include a link to the source page. In fact, you should probably do that when you copy anything from anywhere. Come on, people!
