Some in the anime subculture of geekdom might shudder at the term Weeaboo, a non-sequitur term created originally by the Perry Bible Fellowship it’s said to be on the level of Otaku…however I am taking it back, and using it as a general term for being a Japanophile. So yes, welcome to Weeaboo Wednesday where […]
I expected Pacific Rim to be good. Really good, in fact. I love Guillermo Del Toro, I love giant robots, I love monster flicks… to say I had high hopes would be putting it lightly. And yet, in spite of the giant hypetrain I rode in on, Pacific Rim still managed to blow me away […]

I love giant humanoid robots fighting each other, whether it’s the hardcore scientific side like Armored Troopers Votoms, or the insane fighting-spirit powered robots of GaoGaiGar.
