Come Write for the J-List Blog

J-List Blog Writer’s Application

J-List is your favorite online shop based in Japan, filled with anime, toys, snacks, games, adult goods, and more. We’re Your Friend in Japan!

The J-List Blog covers manga and anime news, in-store releases and sales, as well as features on otaku-related interests.

What We’re Looking For

Are you a talented, entertaining writer with a passion for anime, manga, games, Japanese geek culture, and the English language? Are you ready to produce regular, quality content for the J-List Blog? We’d love to hear from you!

Your Responsibilities

We’re looking for a minimum of two 350 word articles a week, or a longer 1,200-word article every two weeks. You’ll be responsible for coming up with ideas and pitching them to the editorial team.

You can check out the J-List Blog for the types of articles we’ve published, but we’re open to new ideas with real potential to entertain J-List’s readership.


We pay per hundred words, according to a sliding scale, as well as per views over the 14 days following your post going live. Payments are made on the 15th of each month. This is a work-for-hire deal, so don’t expect perks like dental or free hentai.
