Mark Oshiro is a blogger who reads books and watches television series or movies for the first time, and describes his reactions to them in his blogs, as well as films his reactions and distributes the videos. He formerly described himself as a "Straight edge, vegan cyclist, Internet community nerd, atheist bookworm, high-five purveyor, author of Mark Reads / Mark Watches series", and now simply as "Perpetually unprepared since '09." [1]

Mark was nominated in the Best Fan Writer category in both the 2013 [2] and 2014 [3] Hugo Awards .

Mark's popularity can be attributed to his enthusiasm, and the fact that he's watching/reading completely unspoiled (his catchphrase is "You are not prepared"). The comment sections of his review posts tend to be very active, with both old fans and people following the canon unspoiled with Mark taking part in the discussion. Commenters are asked to use rot13 encoding when discussing spoilers so as not to spoil Mark or other unspoiled fans.

Needs More Fandom: this article needs more fandom/fannish content. Please try to focus on how fans relate or interact with this subject or topic. See What Fanlore is not for more information.

[maybe add something about the imbroglio when he was watching "Seeing Red", and the accusations that he's not really as unspoiled as he claims to be]
