Anime Vice News

A Letter From Your Biggest Fan

Farewell. Gia moves on to another project.

Dear Anime Vice Users,

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again to start this letter: I love you guys. Your enthusiasm for anime, manga, and Jpop culture has helped fuel mine for the duration of my time here at Anime Vice.

However, that time is now coming to an end and I will be moving on to a new project. Though I’ll be gone from the news and video pages, I'll still pop in here and there as a user. You can also continue to contact me via PM here,  e-mail, or at a new project I’m playing with at  AnimeBriefs.com. We’re also available on Twitter at  giapet and  JohnMartone. There is no way that you won’t find SOME way to get in touch with us.

While we’re both sad to be leaving the Anime Vice news page, John and I are each excited at the opportunities now available to us—John’s looking at a teaching position –and I promise you’ll hear about all our goings-on. Meanwhile, you can keep hanging out here at Vice, commenting on newsposts and the forums, filling out the database, etc. The main difference to you will be that John and I won’t be on the news or video pages—even though we’re still around.

John promises he’ll write, and by that I mean he plans to offer up his own letter to you in a day or so. As for me—thanks for your continued enjoyment of AnimeVice.com, and we’ll be seeing you around!

Love and Moogles,

gia

I think I'm going to cry...
It's been a blast John and GIa (I'm glad I got to meet you in person before all this) and I thank you for being my introduction to my love for Anime, Manga and JPop Culture...
 
I will follow you in AnimeBriefs and obviously on Twitter....
Thank you for everything, although I wish we would've gotten a last 3-Min Expert, a last Trailer Blast a last Ustream squadcast and a last Unscripted from you guys as a slow goodbye... rather than this abrupt goodbye.. T_T 
 
I will miss you (even though that you're not exactly leaving) it's obvious it won't be the same...
Thanks :)

Wow. Good luck on your future career paths.

Best wishes from me. Sorry to hear that you wont be working on any more video segments. It all makes me rather nervous about the fate of the site as a whole. I don't want to be spending a lot of time filling things out if it will all just end up being deleted at some point in the future. I only wish I could afford to take more time to of written. I haven't had as much free times as I would of liked. It also makes me wonder what will be appearing on the news segments of the front page.
 
I do hope things work out well for you on your new site.

Awesome job Gia (and John, speak to you properly on your goodbye), you've been great. You're the reason I visited as frequently as I have and your articles, videos and great sense of humour have continued to amuse. Here's to great success in the future.
RedRoseson May 6, 2010 at 4:38 p.m.
Thanks for everything you've done on this site. It was fun while it lasted; from the video tidbits to the wonderful commentary to the randomness of being an "intern" for Fanime last year, this mini home here has been great. I wish all the best!
Black_Roseon May 6, 2010 at 4:39 p.m.
Good luck in your future ventures, I'll be right there checking out whatever new things you do. Thanks for keeping us updated with the lastest news for wel over a year.

  Very sad to hear about you and John no longer being  a part of the site. Best wishes to both of you and please keep in touch! Hopefully I'll still be seeing you around the conventions sometime

You were the reason I came here in the first place.  I'll be following you wherever you decide to go.

Best of luck, Gia and John....I will always think of you guys and all of the great stuff you have done for this site whenever I visit AnimeVice or your new site.
