  • AWA: My First Anime Convention

    Anime Weekend Atlanta follows on Dragon Con’s heels every year (taking place just a few weeks later and taking place just a few miles away) but it is, of course, a completely different convention. And though I’ve watched some anime, the idea of going to a full-on anime convention never really occurred to me. But […]



  • Free! Episode 7 and 8 Review

    We at The Geekiary would like to apologize for the incredible delay in Free! reviews. Unfortunately, that pesky thing called real life has gotten in the way.

  • Pacific Rim: B-Movie Monster Flick Bringing its A-Game

    From the headline alone you can tell that I am a fanboy and, yes, this movie was made for me. It was made for all of us geeks that have waited a lifetime for a movie like this, and it was hand-delivered by genius director Guillermo del Toro.  The movie features colossal beasts called Kaiju, which […]
