Pride: Being A Proud Gay Geek

The past month, people across the world have been celebrating Pride month, a moment for the LGBT community and allies to celebrate all that makes up diversity. We here support people to be free to be who they want to be, so long as they’re not cruel to others. Except Joel, you can be mean to Joel if you want*. I thought I’d use today as a way to close off Pride month by talking a bit about myself… What? I’m proud of being a geek. Oh and I’m also proud of being an openly gay geek.

*P.S: Please don’t be mean to Joel, I was kidding.

Anime Review: Megalo Box

It’s the Eye of the Tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight. Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival!

Now that I’ve got that classic tune stuck in your head, let’s turn our attention to Megalo Box. One of the latest sport anime to be released, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the manga Ashita no Joe, Megalo Box is a stunning re-imagining of the boxing anime classic. In a bleak dystopian future, a city, filled with the wealthiest in the centre and slums all around the outskirts, houses the gear-based boxing tournament, Megalonia. Will the protagonist, Junk Dog, manage to rise through the ranks, gain his entry to Megolonia and face off against the undefeated Yuri, the king of kings himself who works for Shirato Corporation, the hosts of Megalonia? You do not want to miss this one!

The One Liner Challenge

The One Liner Challenge is a blog challenge set up by The Awkward Book Blogger, which actually is a little bit different. Instead of answering questions about yourselves, as a blogger, you try to make one-liners, either funny or as a summary of at least five books, manga, anime or games. I’m not huge on these blog games, but considering the types of articles we write here at GeekOut South-West, I thought it was a rather good idea. So for once, I’m taking part in a blogger challenge – and this is going to be a lot of fun.

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?

Bunnies! Rabbits! These little hopping critters are everywhere and they typically make up fodder and small distractions in video games, but nevertheless, they are a much loved type of creature. With their cottontails and their floppy ears, a bunny is a creature which is often depicted around Easter time, as they represent reproduction. In this Top 10, we’ll celebrate the bunnies that make up video games, anime, film and more.

Anime Review: How To Keep A Mummy

Hey everyone, cute mascots sell an anime right? Well, sometimes that may be the case. Take Kyubey, the cutest little creature which binds people into contracts for their souls! YEAH! Wait, what? Hmm, perhaps this cute mascot malarkey has a lot more behind it than I initially thought! Let’s turn our attention back to the focus of this review.

This Winter season, Crunchyroll have been promoting an anime called How To Keep A Mummy; a series all about a man and his struggles in keeping a tiny mummy. Except this isn’t an ordinary mummy, because I think I’d rather formalde-HIDE than watch that. Hah, I’m funny. Anyway, come read about how a dorky guy deals with looking after the world’s smallest mini-…pet?

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!
