Well! If you were disappointed that today’s Super Terrific Japanese Thing was both Super and Terrific, I have good news! Here’s a new trailer for that Dragon Age anime movie, which is neither of those things. It’s just kind of… there. On the other hand, a few characters get absolutely covered with arterial spray after stabbing some things, which is the Dragon Age game series’ most defining characteristic, and I did hear one of the people say”Blood Mage” at one point, so at least it’s 200% more Dragon Age-y than the last Dragon Age anime footage we saw. Yay? I guess? (Via Anime News Network)
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.
