Well, you watch this trailer for The Amazing Dogoo Girl — which is going to be a prime-time Japanese TV show from the makers of The Machine Girl, Ju-On and Tokyo Gore Police — and you tell me. Not only is it primetime, it’s replacing perennial children’s TV classic Ultraman, meaning this is more or less designed for Japanese boys aged 6-11 or so… and yet features a heroine with magic breasts, not to mention the villains with evil breasts (like the bee woman). The show isn’t technically as weird as Robogeisha, but I’d say these circumstances propel it past even the legendary Geisha Chainsaw in terms of total insanity. (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.
