Top 10 Characters Who Died Too Soon

GeekOut Top 10s

Characters come and characters go; it’s only fair to point out that you can’t always enjoy a character through to the end of a series. Indeed, some characters are simply put in to be fodder, or to be used as a way to leverage an episode, or as an ongoing plot device. Death may be final, but in our minds, these characters live on, as we check out our Top 10 Characters Who Died Too Soon.

WARNING: Before we get into this week’s Top 10, you must be warned that there will be various spoilers in this article.

Anime Review: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

A world ravaged by vampires and ancient men of power, powerful Hamon energy must be harnessed to defeat the evil undead. When Hamon isn’t enough, the powerful mental companions known as Stands take centrestage. The world of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is everything its namesake would have you believe – It’s an adventure and hoo boy, is it bizarre. From beautifully manly men, to the most dangerous of manipulators, JoJo, or whichever variant of JoJo we’re talking about, has to rid the world of an evil that plagues the Earth.

But enough about that, is the anime actually any good?

JoJo’s Bizarre Impression On Me

Recently, if you were a friend of mine on either Steam or on our Discord channel, I may have mentioned to you that I’ve been watching JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure recently. At long last, might I add? It’s a series which has always been on my list to watch, but something I just hadn’t gotten around to until recently. I intend to do a full review, but at the moment, I’m only up to the ‘second part’, Joseph’s adventure, but here are my raw feelings of the anime so far.

Top 10 Twins

Mathematically speaking of course, there is no reason whatsoever to believe that twins are double the trouble. Indeed evidence suggests that trouble may rise exponentially with twins than with standard siblings or any other unrelated double act. No concern of ours whether identical or otherwise, we have assembled twins of all manner and kind from across geek culture and crammed them uncomfortably into this double-stuffed Top 10.

GeekOut Top 10s

The Gambler – These are a hard to predict, an often unreasonable group of people – Especially when they’re against you.

Nevertheless, the gambler likes the payout – So if you’ve ever wanted to get a gambler on your side, consider who you’re hiring into your team and appreciate our Top 10 Gamblers in media.

Top 10 Shonen Anime

GeekOut Top 10s

Anime! It’s a little crazy, it’s a little zany and usually it’s usually full of action! We love action here, so this week I got with Kevin Kutlesa from The Mental Attic, where we decided to have a sit down chat about anime – and more importantly, anime that we would have loved as a teenager. Some of these have been around for ages; whereas some of them came and went. Either way, these are our Top 10 Shonen Anime!

GeekOut Bristol Meet – January 12th: Hero Academy Gallery

PLUS ULTRA!

We had a hero inspired meetup this meet, where we took everybody to school and tested them in a huge competition, which took me most of the day to run (but damn, was it ever entertaining?) We had plenty of entrants, of which everyone got five minutes in and hey – We got through the event with more people than expected. Considering it was January, I was surprised to see so many people eager for another GeekOut Bristol Meet, as opposed to hiding away due to Christmas. Still, you all came and saw – so as ever, here’s our monthly gallery of the happenings of the event.

Top 10 – Spaceships

GeekOut Top 10s

Ah space, it’s the final frontier and all that jazz. However, what you may not really think about on a regular basis is all of the great spaceships that have graced our media. Whatever you think about space, or sci-fi as a whole, you can’t deny that the vast quantities of planets out in pop culture can only be explored with the help of our giant metal vessels. So, without further adieu, here is our Top 10 Spaceships! (more…)
