There are several things I don’t understand about this 6-minute clip from the CG Dragon Age anime movie Dawn of the Seeker.
? That must be a regular dragon and not an archdemon, right? Because I’m pretty no one can chain up an archdemon. Also, he goes down like a chump.
? Why do the Mana Bolts the mages fire sound like lasers from Star Wars?
? Why is the dude with the bad hat feeding that girl dragon blood? I know about darkspawn blood, and I assume archdemon blood would have the same taint, but does dragon blood do anything? Am I forgetting something?
? Is it that girl’s destiny to drink so much dragon blood she dies? Because that seems like a very lackluster destiny, and an even worse evil plan.

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.
