Nigorimasen! started out as Part-Time Otaku in May 2006 and moved off WordPress.com in January 2007. The blog was rebooted in October 2014 after a security incident.

If you’re interested in some of the posts published before October 2014, you may be able to read them through the Internet Archive.

The blog’s name (濁りません, “Don’t misread it!” or, more literally, “Don’t muddy it”) comes from one of the characters in Zettai Shonen, Sukawara Akira (須河原 晶), a public access news reporter who uses the phrase within her on-air introductions because the kanji characters in her family name can also be read as Sugawara.
