You probably already noticed the increase of Editorial content on Anime Vice's home page. Aside from the amazing articles Tom Pinchuk writes for the site, a few Whiskey Media moderators have taken it upon themselves to add to the count. We want your feedback on what we do so I present to you our article schedule:

Disclaimer: As moderators we do not have the privileges to post the articles ourselves. That is why we resort to the Guest_Author account for posting. Under these circumstances articles aren't guaranteed to go up on the scheduled days.

The schedule will change depending on the present anime season and its releases. We will also try and get some news content in there from time to time.

Wow! The organized weekly table makes me want to have a consistent agenda of the weekly reports I do for the team and community. I blame myself for taking huge workload that makes me erratic. Oh, Tuesday seems blank. I guess I fill that one out.

Great job everyone! This will inspire the community members to come out of their bubble and contribute! Make some weekly reports, too.

I have to think about a topic for the weekly query.

@sora_thekey: Great job organizing that stuff, Sora! Now we can expect which articles arrive, but can the current "Ametur vs. Expert: Persona 4 The Animation" Articles (Authored By Babylonian and FoxxFireArt) schedule be added?

You also got poor sickVisionz' name incorrectly spelled. Just a small heads up.

Agreed, how can you NOT hyperlink ZombiePie's username? he deserves much better than that.

@Bigheart711: It also depends on the writers of the article. We need Foxx and Babylonian to tell us when.

I am impressed so far with the winter watch articles! I appreciate that they also come with screenshots, nice touch.

I didn't really find weekly queries or weekly picks that fun or useful, but that might just be me. If you were to bring any of them back, I'd say bring back weekly picks. I imagine that it's useful for people who like waiting for high quality dvd/blu ray, and it could help indirectly put more money into the anime industry through indirect advertising?

I really like being able to watch an episode, think about it a little bit, then come onto anime vice and read someone else's thoughts on it. Which is why I like the winter watch stuff so much. Which means that I am not reading every article, but the ones that I do, I try to comment on and add my thoughts on the episode.

I hope this is good feedback! Keep it up everyone!

So AV is becoming T.H.A.T. Anime Blog?  I am ok with this.

@AURON570: That's perfect feedback. The kind we needed!

@Turambar: Well, I wouldn't exactly say that. While we are covering a lot of anime we are choosing the series that we think is relevant to the users here. We are also doing this in order to introduce everybody to new anime and to emphasize the importance of watching series that are legally streamed. This way we, as a community, can support the industry. If you notice, all of the series that we cover are either streamed via CrunchyRoll or Hulu. Then again, the idea is not only to do episode reviews but other editorial and news content. That's why we are asking about the Quick Picks and Weekly Query.

So this is where you want me to post my feedback? alright.

Too many episodic blogs/reviews of anime you could find anywhere on the internet.

@Cloudenvy: Okay, now how about you tell us something useful. What exactly do you want to see?

Keep in mind though that we have to send our articles through staff as we can't post them ourselves. That makes posting "breaking news" articles kind of hard, that's a big part of why we've been doing weekly anime articles.

Let's see what you could do..Instead of episodic blogging about Nisemonogatari one could for example study and explain all the in-jokes and references to Japanese media and products that's hidden in there. You could also do that with Bakemonogatari or Zetsubou Sensei if you so wished.

One could compile all the shows airing and make a list on who's subbing them and thereafter rate them so you know where and who to get your subs from.

Stuff like that, all do-able with second hand info.

1) I'm covering Nisemonogatari and I can tell you that the level of awareness of Japanese pop culture to notice these things is a level of knowledge that I don't have and the amount of time and research required to study and explain them is more than I'm willing to put forth considering that I have a job and don't get paid for anything done on the site.

2) We already do that for legally streaming shows. If you're talking about creating a list of fansubbers and pointing people to where they should pirate their anime from, AV is strictly against piracy or support/endorsing sites and organizations that are engaged in it.
