Now hold your horses. This isn’t, strictly speaking, a real anime, but it’s spectacularly badass and deserves your attention nonetheless. Paul “Otaking” Johnson has written, drawn and animated this selection of clips of the third Doctor, running around Tokyo, beating the hell out of thugs, meeting scantily-clad anime girls, and getting caught in a battle between Daleks and Metal Men Cybermen. It’s all sorts of awesome, especially when you consider it was made by one dude. (Via Japanator)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
