As you may or may not have noticed Anime Vice has gotten a complete overhaul so is that it looks more like the other Whiskey media sites. The standard format which is the "black format is purple...because purple is cool. I don't like purple personally so I'm going to stick with the "white" version of Anime Vice which is hideous and a complete abomination that I have been informed by the WM engineers shouldn't actually exist.

Beyond that the Search Bar is much improved. The search customization abilities are better and easier to use. Then we have the the new bars for navigating the site. I personally still think they are a little puffy but honestly I don't care that much.

So what do you think?

seems ok, but when you try to inert an image into a post it seems somewhat a bit more glitchy with loading the galleries when the mouse hovers over it.

I like is much better than the other version. It just takes a little while to adjust to it, but in the end it is better xD

The navbar/button colour is a bit... greyish. But other than that it's just as good as when Giant Bomb was updated. I'm wondering what they'll do with Screened, since that has a slightly different layout (personally I'd like them all to match, the navbar and stuff at the top at least, but that's just me).

For those that have no idea what I'm talking about with the white version of Anime Vice looking like vomit but is still better than purple this is what I mean:
The green inbetween the navigation bar tabs is the worst...but again I I hate purple so it's by default better than the default look.

@Newten: This is discussing the site so technically it should be in General Discussion. Sorry but I hit the wrong button and seeing how this isn't a blog I can't change anything.

How do you get the white version back?  The functionality got stripped a while back and it's been hell editing tables in the black/purple since you can't actually see the individual cells that you're in.

@sickVisionz:  Go to where it says your profile name at the upper right of the screen (where it has the icon for mail, followers online by XP bar), hover over it so that the dropdown menu appears, and click on the left of the two A/A icons (one Black A on White, one White A on Black) to change.

Hope that helps xD

@sickVisionz:  As already stated drop your cusor over your user profile pic on the top right and it is right next to the RSS feed button right below "Guides." I have been informed that this version of the site is going to be removed soon as this is technically a glitch and shouldn't exist. You can see why. The site looks terrible in this version. It looks like the bastard child of the Comic Vine and Giant Bomb color schemes.

If you're experiencing some slowdown or getting internal server errors, try refreshing (and being patient). Sorry if it's a pain but I think it's because the internet can't handle the awesomeness of the new design. Top Men will be on this today.

Purple site looks good I would of liked them to stay with the pink that they had before but whatever.
The white site looks like an abomination for now but that is what you get for using a white site.

Loved the new layout, but I agree with ZP and Dams on the white version. No other problems with this format though. <3

I'm used to it from Giant Bomb.  The "Cosplay" button is a bit weird to see though.  I guess it was always there and I never noticed, but now it seems more prominent.  I'm hesitant to click it though but on the other hand it calls out to me.  The shiny candy-like button.

If you mouse over the "Forum" tab it says "Main Forum" and "Popular Games Forum".  I'm guessing that's a holdover from Giant Bomb.
