“Who are you? What is this place? What’s in this place? Why am I even here? And, what the elf do たまご [eggs] have to do with Japan?!?!”
Okay, first of all, I don’t come to your website and start bombarding you with a plethora of completely valid questions. Second, I will address your plethora in a moment, just give a sec. Third… well, there really is no ‘third’ –except Shrek the Third, which they really should not have made. They shouldn’t have even made a second. And why in Sir Daniel DeVito’s holy name did they make a fourth?! –Money. Look at that, you’re already learning invaluable life lessons.
Now that we have that settled, let’s get started!
MISSION STATEMENT: To obtain native-like fluency in the Japanese language by any means necessary (immersion, study, fun, or otherwise) for the purpose of providing the Japanese public with new perspectives of entertainment (including, but not limited to: movies, music, art in general, etc.).
What YOU get from hatchJAPAN:
Do you like scantly dressed pictures of provocatively positioned women? That’s right, so sexy even the pictures themselves are hardly wearing any clothing. Well, you can get that smut almost anywhere else but here.
hatchJAPAN offers you first and foremost, light-hearted entertainment. If you like to smile and have a good time, this is a site you may enjoy. Original videos, music, articles, pictures, etc. created by ざっちー are just a few of the things you’ll find here. There are many delicious things to feed your face-balls and other senses; most being about Japan, so be prepared to learn a little. But, be careful! Amongst all the silliness, you may find yourself feeling the drive to accomplish. hatchJAPAN also provides motivational backings and ideas. While the site is geared specifically toward learning Japanese, most suggestions and information can be applied to just about any goal in general.

You can find all this and more located in the top menu bar.
If you don’t like the site, that’s cool. –About as cool as a guy smoking while wearing sunglasses at night, which, is pretty darn cool according to an ‘87 U.S. consensus.
Basically, what you get from hatchJAPAN is ME! –Which brings me to my next point—
Who am I?!
I am not Jackie Chan. The name is ざっちー [‘Zatchy’ to those of you who can’t read]. The things I love most are Japan, making movies, making smiles, and making anything else. As you can draw from the Mission Statement above, my dream is to make a living in Japan creating Japanese media as a writer, director, and actor for the entertainment world. Shaping that dream into a bouncing baby ball of reality is quite a task, so, I’ve outlined a game plan to help me visualize how to conquer all over this daunting goal’s face. The ‘red’ text represents the important things I will do regardless of how. The ‘blue’ are good ideas to help me accomplish the ‘red’.
And really, why would I have a site if I didn’t want to harness the powers of the internet to network: meet people, make connections as well as friends? I want to hear from you! Whether it be about what I’m doing or just to say ‘hello’. Private. Public. I want it. Comment. Contact me. Anything or anyone that can bring me closer to reaching my goal, the better. I strive to get better. That means feel free to critique. Constructively. Don’t be a douche— Unless you do it Japanese.
