It’s a shitty hand-cam video of the trailer from the Tokyo Game Show, and it’s still the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. To those who aren’t One Piece fans — and god, I pity you people — this might not seem like the most exciting thing ever, but it is. IT SO IS. I’d say I’ll be in my bunk, but I’d never get there before the collapsing in sheer orgasmic pleasure at the awesomeness I see before me. Infinite thanks to KingKha for the tip.
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.
