The more you eat, the more you’ll go to hell. I guess. Honestly, despite my wealth of anime knolwedge, I had never heard of Mameshiba, an anime apparently all about various beans who use their incredibly specific trivia knowledge in order to freak people out so badly they don’t eat them. If you enjoyed — or can even just stand it — head over to Geek Pad Show for nine more equally odd clips.
Oh, and sorry for the delay in the TR contest. Things came up, but the winner will be announced earlier tomorrow. Sorry for the incredible anguish you contestants must be going through right now.
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.
