Anatomical diagrams are fascinating looks of a species from the skin all the way to muscle and bone. They allow countless individuals to understand the wonders of a perfectly balanced and natural biological system.

But, what if the animals aren’t natural? How would bones and muscles be organized in mythical creatures, such as the king of all monsters, Godzilla?

Apparently, back in 1967, a book came out to answer all those questions, aptly entitled “An Anatomical Guide to Monsters,” by Shoji Otomo and illustrated by Shogo Endo.

However, unless you can read Japanese, the pictures (located below the jump) are completely incomprehensible. Someone needs to translate them … work your magic Internet!

Still., they are very cool to look at.

I mean, who knew that Gamera had (what appears to be) four different stomachs?


What’s up Bastards! After having some damn problems we are back and so is DVD Tuesday! Since Tuesday has just passed on, I decided to do a “lite” version and pretty much¬†recommend¬†what came out last week and this week as well.

In other words, I’m only going to list the stuff that you should at least check out. You can expect a full return of DVD Tuesday next week but for now, check after the jump to see what came out and see if there is something you want! (more…)


It’s a Tuesday and you know the drill. We here at NerdBastards list out what Blu-Ray/DVD release came out and recommend what is a BUY, RENT, and PASS. We got a few releases and will have the Old Stuff is New Again section. No TV Show DVD Worth Checking Out section and the Anime Pick of The Week is sorta modified for the week because I’m not going to recommend another Dragon Ball release. See what came out after the jump. (more…)
