Somehow, it is 2010, and there’s never been a proper, traditional zombie anime. That gets corrected later this year when the popular manga High School of the Dead becomes an anime in Japan, following the adventures of high school students fighting zombies in a high school (hey, you can’t say the title is inaccurate) along with copious breast jiggling and panty shots. This trailer’s being shown at the Tokyo Anime Fair, hence the camera-recording-a-TV quality. The best anime ever? No. An anime that looks pretty damn fun? Sure. An anime I can’t believe hasn’t happened before 2010? Fuck yes. (Via AnimeVice)
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.
