It's not just you--we also
waste much of our precious time surfing the Internet for
fun and/or "educational" sites relating to animation
and comic books and whatnot. If you're sick of surfing around
here, well, yes, you may leave, but you'll miss us, mark
our words! Oh, and come back for our frequent updates; current
update schedule is listed on top of Sleep is for the Weak's
We update often, oh yes we do.
Just ... just go. Just leave.

is for the Weak
link to us, do ya? We give you our thanks, gift certificates
to numerous high-priced boutiques free of charge*, and a
wide variety of deliciously simple banners/buttons in all
the colors of the rainbow so you may keep the color coordination
on your respective sites. We think of these things, yes
we do. And for any of you who care not about the color and
actually know which color corresponds to which staff member,
then now's the time to play favorites, baby. (I recommend
the green ones, completely unbiased.*)
Well, if we didn't
already link to them enough, here they are again. Lianne
has been a very happy freelancer
for them for three years now, and after working the Tokyopop
booth at Otakon
still have their Tokyopop t-shirts to show off to jealous
otaku (Japanese animation fans). Besides the job connection,
though, Tokyopop is the coolest Japanese comic translator/distributor
out there, because they're darn fast, darn cheap, and have
darn good series. While we can't approve of all of
Tokyopop's titles (CLAMP! NO, NOT THE CLAMP!), we love a
great deal of them. And Tokyopop's CEO, Stu Levy, is one
of the coolest men ever. So big hugs to this company.
Not only is this
a great online store for anime, comics, Asian snacks, and
anime-related junk, the Anime News section and Ask John
are absolutely invaluable resources. There are members of
the Sleep is for the Weak staff who visit this site every
few days--religiously. Go see, go see.
If you read fanfiction
and haven't been here, have your head checked. This is the
place to read fics based on anything from anime to movies
to books. It's often down because of site problems, but
you get used to that, and it's a small price to pay for
such delicious time-wasting fare.
Grand List Of Console Role Playing Game Clichés
As the page
says at its top, spoilers abound, but if you can get past
that aspect then do so. This is not only insanely funny,
its uncannily accurate.
Ever see a computer-savvy
otaku make a music video with anime clips set to popular
music? Ok, ever see about TEN BILLION of these music
videos together on one site? Right. Hurry along, now, there's
downloading to be done.
Delusions (Links Page)
Scroll down a touch
and you will see a huge link list to all sorts of
webcomics, and little descriptions of each comic to boot.
You can discover some great stuff on here. Updated

This is definitely one of the more primary and detailed
This is, at
its basest level, an online anime store based in Japan,
but once you've surfed their news sections and manga highlights
you'll realize what a great resource it is--in addition
to selling the Region 2
Piece DVDs as they come out, helping
us, uh, I mean helping you track their release in
Japan to judge just how long it'll be before the Alabasta
arc hits our shores.
