Anime Vice Battle User of July 2014: Low

Congratulations to Low!

Congratulations to Low! Here is his introduction written by Low whom I had the pleasure of interviewing.

Low got into anime many years ago as a kid. He forgot the name of the first anime he watched, something with a girl island princess, and a granny who is reborn as this girl's little sister. She has to go through a competition to become the ruler of that island which could be shaped like a skull. Later on, anime series such as Cyborg 009, Cyborg Kuro Chan, and Card Captor Sakura, which was really what pushed Low into the world of anime. There wasn't much internet back in the day, and he only ever got to watch Naruto from DVDs which he rented from a friend. That didn't stop Low.

How did Low get into Anime Vice? One day on Comic Vine, Low was debating for an anime themed battle thread when this guy came up and basically told him to get out (not his exact words). It prompted him to Google Anime Vice. Back when Low joined, the battle forum was not as active as it is now. It was slow progression, Low visit the wiki pages and forum threads. He remembered not wanting to create battle threads due to the rule of having images in the thread. But all that is behind Low now, as he got used to posting here on Anime Vice, he can safely even say currently: he's more active on Anime Vice than on Comic Vine. To know about Low more, check out his lists. He has a personal list of the strongest anime and manga characters. It's still a work in progress. He has a list of current anime and manga series he's hooked on to. His favorite character is Tsunayoshi Sawada.

His Battle Theme is!

His favorite battle threads here on Anime Vice are Toriko, Dragon Ball Z, Dark Schneider, and God of Highschool threads. In the past, right around 3 months back, he was engaged in quite a bit of Magi and Fairy Tail debates. He believed he had a tendency to change according to the ongoing debates around that particular time. All in all, as long as Low knows a character, he will not refrain from a good debate.

July's battle theme is The God of Highschool, Assassination Classroom, and The Gamer.

Proudest Achievement

Engaging in the Seven Deadly Sins Roundtable, that was a new thing for Low, and he loved the experience of discussing a popular, upcoming manga series with a group of friends for than anything else done on the forum. The fact that he was a part of the Seven Deadly Sins wiki project was something he took pride in. His first and best wiki page is Meliodas.

Credits for the banner:

This time, I didn't use external sources since Seven Deadly Sins doesn't have a lot of transparent pre-made images, so I had to use scans and make transparent PNG myself. Here are the image sources: Gowther is from Seven Deadly Sins Chapter 57 page 4, Ban's image source is unknown, and the back drop is from God of High School chapter 107, page 8.

@taichokage: @waybig1010101: @Bigheart711: Thanks guys. I did not really expect to have won vs a veteran on the forum.

waybig1010101on July 8, 2014 at 12:09 p.m.

@Low: The way I see it is that your a great debater, so you deserve it. Also don't forget that you got to come up with a team name for the amount of battler users that won already =)

Lowon July 8, 2014 at 12:13 p.m.

@waybig1010101: what do you mean?

waybig1010101on July 8, 2014 at 12:18 p.m.

@Low: well when there was five or was it six battle users? i forget lol but what happen was that doing that person's thread for being the battle user of the month award i believed @taichokage: made a joke by calling us by a famous team name for example the first four winners were all big toriko fans so he called us the four heavenly kings.

Lowon July 8, 2014 at 12:28 p.m.

@waybig1010101: Ah well then, me included, there are 8 guys now. I call us, the Vizards! lol

taichokage is online on July 8, 2014 at 12:29 p.m.

@Low: LOL thats perfect XD

Oh yeah, I should moved this to the battle forums. It's good to see on the front page. Time to set up the next voting thread. Sorry everyone, it was a bit late. I had finals last week along with AX last weekend. I think I made the banner blurry somehow. I'll double check my work.


Congrats again. I forgot to put down your battle theme for this month. We only had favorites written down. What would be July's battle themes? I'll help out make battle threads if I can.

@Low: Congratulations Low!!!!! Your anime and manga preferences are amazing too. Similar to my preferences actually which is why their great.

I said the exact same thing earlier. Awesome stuff.

@takashichea: Battle Theme?

takashichea moderator on July 9, 2014 at 2:31 p.m.


Yes, you're the battle user of the month. The Toriko had a boom because of Taichokage, WayBig, SpeedForceSpider, and Othus12.

I see you're emphasizing Manhwa series which could help out the Wiki Task: Manhwa Project.

Do you want that as your battle theme? Or you can toss in some more obscure series. I still need to make one Kekkaishi thread for DBZ's battle theme. It's a promise I will not break.

@taichokage: @IndridCold: @waybig1010101:

Do you guys think that would be a good theme for July?

waybig1010101on July 9, 2014 at 2:33 p.m.

@takashichea: looks fine to me and if Low likes it then it should be fine IMO

IndridColdon July 9, 2014 at 2:37 p.m.

@takashichea: Honestly, I think we do need some more diverse series so:

  • One Punch Man
  • World Trigger
  • Terra Formars
  • Assassination Classroom
  • Zatch Bell
  • Manhwa such as: Noblesse, God of Highschool, The Gamer
  • History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi
  • Sengoku Basara
Lowon July 9, 2014 at 2:37 p.m.

@takashichea: Cool. I actually want to use this opportunity to endorse a God of Highschool battle themed thread.

taichokage is online on July 9, 2014 at 2:42 p.m.
Second that. GOH is great.
takashichea moderator on July 9, 2014 at 5:11 p.m.


I'll reedit your article and include that.

Did you look at IndridCold's request? Let me know if you want to add more.
