Specifically, it’s for the weird, anime-loving ladies who would like to see Japan’s most kid-friendly characters re-imagined as scantily-clad men with incredibly taut stomachs. You’re looking at Doraimon, Astro Kid and Pikachoo, shockingly-not-approved cosplay done by some guy for some reason, and I’m posting it because the guys have had plenty of posts like this (MEN, HIT THAT LINK IMMEDIATELY TO ESCAPE THE NIGHTMARE) and you were certainly owed. Admittedly, you’d probably prefer Batman or Destro in various states of undress, this is the best I’ve found while not looking too hard. We all have to make do. (Via Danny Choo)

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.

Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
