Fullmetal Alchemist

While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.

For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of  items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.

We hope you’ll  find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.

Hit the jump for Sam Sakura’s list of Nerdful things. To see archive of this feature, click HERE.


When decorating your tree this year don’t forget the reason for the season, Cthulhu.  This adorable little guy can be yours for only $7.49. It’s a small price to pay to honor our mighty overlord. Available at NeatoShop.


93 Different Anime Series, One Opening


While we all know it’s hard to be original, there is nothing wrong to create or do something that has been done before since folks will be familiar with it. Well, the video here is to show that the anime industry is not afraid of doing that familiar thing… over and over again.

Derek Lieu created the video posted below that may prove that the anime industry follows a certain formula or checklist when it comes to making the opening animation. Whether it be running towards the left side of the screen to a close up of a characters eye, the video shows how 93 different anime opening animation has something in common with each other.

As an anime fan, I find this hilarious and to be honest, I can name 10+ more anime that can fit into this video. Even if you’re not a anime fan, I say check the video out just to see how ridiculous it is.
