This week, some staff members who shall remain nameless would rather have a Game of Thrones podcast then talk about silly Japanese cartoons all day. But alas, we are Japanator, not DaenerysTargaryenator, so we must perse... | subscribe

It was the year 2013.
And on that day, mankind received an adorable reminder.
We lived in fear and awe of Attack on Titan's merchandising potential, and no walls could protect us from the colossal head of the Colossal Titan Nendoroid.

Sorry for taking too long on revealing the winner. Apparently, there was this major power outage at Japanator HQ, and we had to drive away the cats in the most non violent way possible. It was a long battle, but we were able to come to a closing stand point with the felines. Unfortunately, we're still recovering from the deep scratch wounds. Oh wait, what was I talking about again? Oh yeah, the Moekanji Contest winners! Without further ado, let's reveal the winners for both options.
Once again, congratulation, folks! At the moment, the Moekanji Packs are currently shipping to our sender, aka Hiroko, so be on the look out for an email from us during the week. To the winners of Option Number One, the extra prize (The Fate/Stay Night t-shirt or the Totoro Origami) will be a surprise, so you'll have to pray that you get the item that you've been hoping for. Also, you can check out all of the entries for Option Number One in the gallery below.
Before we wrap things up, I would love to give an Honorable Mention to Kleber J Davila for doing an outstanding job on his Mirai-chan piece. His entry may have been late, but we cannot deny Kleber's piece from being shown in the gallery.
Actually, I would like to give a big thanks to everyone who entered. That said, congratulations, everyone!
[Update #2: The contest is now closed. Thanks for entering, the winner will be revealed later on in the day]
[Update: We have revealed the two surprize prizes that Hiroko is giving away for option number one.]
At the end of May, the cuteness in the form of Moekanji will be available for people to purchase. Thanks to Danny Choo, we will be giving away four Moekanji packs. Instead of having one way for you guys to win these lovely adorable cards, you will have two options!
For your first choice, we require you to do a fanart of Mirai-chan wearing a shirt that features Japanator’s logo, aka the cute smiley Cyclops. Once you are done with your entry piece, be sure to post your completed work in the Community Blog section of Japanator with the headline Moekanji Contest. Since it takes a lot of hard work to create good artwork, the two winners of the first option will also get a surprise item from Hiroko’s stash in the form of a Fate/Stay Night T-shirt or a Totoro origami.
To those who lack the drawing talent to participate in option number one, the second option will require you to leave a comment below about your reasoning behind learning Japanese. If you are interested in entering but haven’t learned any Japanese yet, you could give us an answer about your reasoning behind wanting to learn Japanese instead. Your answer can either be serious or goofy, so do your best to be creative with your reply.
You have until June 8th (11:59 PM) to submit your entry, and you are only allowed to enter in one option, so choose wisely. Also, the contest will be open to US residents only – sorry, international readers. Once we choose our two winners from both contests, we will contact the victors through their email on their J-toraccount, so make sure that you have one before you enter. After we pick the two winners for both options, we will reveal the winners on June 9th, along with a gallery of all of the entries for option number one.
I have yet to master the ways Moonspeak, but I've heard from many people that kanji is very hard to learn. But never fear, Danny Choo and the Good Smile Company are coming to your aid with the power of Moekanji cards! Now yo...
