Elon Musk is not your run-of-the-mill tech entrepreneur, and to make it even more interesting, he just recently announced on social media that he likes anime, which makes him a total weeaboo.

The 47-year-old business magnate shared on his Twitter account over the weekend that he loved the hit Japanese anime movie “Your Name” (“Kimi no na wa”).
 
The popular and highly successful movie – which Hollywood plans to make a live-action adaptation of – is not the only anime flick he likes.

Down the thread, he also acknowledged that he knows the classic mecha anime show “Neon Genesis Evangelion” in the most geeky way possible.

The “NERV” (German for “nerve”) Musk is referring to in his post is the command center established in the anime series to combat the antagonist race, Angels. It is also the same special organization that created the Evangelions.
Another fan then asked Musk for his thoughts on Studio Ghibli’s popular movie “Spirited Away.” To perhaps nobody’s surprise at this point, he revealed that he is a fan of the classic movie, and even proclaimed his love for another film from the Japanese studio.
