Japan Legend is made with the intention of bringing great Japanese stuff to more people.
The concept started out as a need to bring great japanese media to more people and attempt to drive away people's preconceptions and misconceptions.
The site started out as a community forum with the intent on bringing together a group of like minded people to work on a common goal. The idea was to then move onto a form of site that can be informative and teach people about the different kinds of media that they can get. The first attempt was using a CMS called subdreamer to create articles and content. This method failed miserably as the software was cumbersome.
At this current time, the wiki software now resides on this site. This has proven to be easy to use and is allowing the information database to expand at a wonderful rate.
