Camera guy sucks. Doesn't know how to work a camera.

first of all you pronounced Lufi wrong, and the next anime you should watch should be Darker than black

@BloodRavyne:  I agree Tom looks like the 4th Doctor when you close up to much, and not in the good way :P 
A well it looks cool any way, i wish we would get a few more convention a bit closer to my town.
 
@The American TGWTG fans: Where's Tommy Wiseau's bloody rotting corpse!?! you guys promised to paint the walls red with his guts!! i demand justice!! j/k

This was awesome... Tom will you become an otaku soon?
You should watch Monster... I want to know your take on that anime!
 
The thing you should have definitely done was gone and play Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep in the Square Enix booth!

You are not how I pictured you, Tom. But it's ok because you provide a greater form of information for us to enrage and enlighten others. Why not do a title that is not very popular for the Watch and Learn? Kind of change gears by doing Love Hina or Black Lagoon or Samurai 7.

I am NOT insulted.

Not that you are a bad looking guy, Tom; but way too many closeups of your mouth and nose. Though, I image there probably wasn't too much room for a wide shot to happen.
 
I really don't care for Ultimo or Heroman. One, Ultimo is a silly premise and a VIZ publication. Two, the protagonist of Heroman honestly looks like a girl. When I first saw preview images of the series. I really thought it was going to be a girl as the hero.
 
Could of cared less about the VIZ booth. I was more interested in the FUNimation stuff. I was personally hoping to hear if FUNimation has any plans for the movie One Piece Strong World. I think that just came out in Japan on DVD. Fansub sites are already posting versions up, but I'd like to hear something from the official site. Since FUNimation has been running the anime. I've abandoned fansubs for that series and many others.

That's a little rude. Remember, they are in a packed convention hall. It's not as if they had the luxury of standing there and framing the shot.

Don't take it to hard man, your just learning right? at least some of us know that you needed to be closer in order to get a good audio in that place. :P (i hope that's the reason lol)
 
But you guys should have followed that Pikachu girl XD

You look different than some pic I always associated you with that reminded me of what Garnett Lee probably looked like 10-15 years ago. 
 
@ethan: haha

omg I was expecting a video of the floor showing all the cool anime stuff, not a video of some guy's face taking up three quarters of the screen while he goes on about about stuff I can't see. you look so bored.

Hehe, yah. Basically all our 'real' camera people were on the other side of the con with the Comicvine team.  Tom and I were just messing around with a Flip camera, and holy crap all the Anime booths are super loud with music and announcements, so yah i had to get the camera and mic close. 
 
BUT.... Tom Pinchuk loved to jam his face against the camera!  Haha

You can expect the unexpected here at Animevice.
Daniel_Newton moderator on July 27, 2010 at 4:51 p.m.
*sniff sniff* Do I smell new video content? Nice.
Always enjoy walks around a con/expo/whatever, there's always lots of crazy to see.
Kelleth moderator on July 27, 2010 at 5:06 p.m.
@ethan:  I think some reviewers always filter some of the louder commercial sounds out via a computer program, Maybe you can try that out at the next convention? So we won't have to see close-up's Tom's face all the time lol :)

I see Jim from The Office likes to watch anime in his spare time.

@ethan: 
It's natural you would have the good hardware where it was most needed. This was Comic Con. Not an anime convention.
 
What I thought was pretty funny. When I was watching Spike TV while the con was going on. They had a commercial for the G4 coverage of SDCC. The only thing that they talked about showing in this promo was for movies and TV shows. NO mention of any comics.

I went to school with a guy who looks exactly like Tom.  
 
It's freaking me out.

OMFG Video content on anime vice!
ShadowKnight508 moderator on July 28, 2010 at 9:09 a.m.
Nice vid...makes me envious that I could not go to it (went to FanimeCon this past May). Stan Lee in that "East meets West" illustration at the beginning is epic lol n_n

@ethan: Hahaha now you are an inexperienced camera man for Anime Vice... :P

It was most of the shots taken during the con were really up close so the Camera could pick up the audio... and @FoxxFireArt: is right wide shots were never an option if you had a Flip cam... people were more self conscious of getting in front of a camera when the real Whiskey Media equipment was in use with microphones and everything!
