I humbly nominate Sepia Mutiny. Dark and unbalanced commentary on all things South Asian, now with snark and wit. As for its "newcomer" status, it's only a few months old!

Doing this for under a year counts as a newcomer, right? I'll nominate myself in that case. You already know about my site, Simon, but for those who don't: I translate articles from Japanese news sites that otherwise wouldn't make it into the English language. You can compare me to semen all you want, but without me who would have known about Hideki Matsui's steamy romance with Sakai Miki??

Ok I realised someone nominated me. Well, here's my own nomination.
