AV MOD MATERIAL: Community Spotlight 10/25/12

Darkness falls across the land. The midnight hour is close at hand. For no mere mortal can resist the evil of the thriller anime. Mwahaha!!

Happy All Hallow's Eve, Anime Vice! Yeah, I know it's not Halloween yet, but this is the last Community Spotlight until the 31st. Just felt I'd get it out of the way while I had your attention. It also gav me an excuse to use this awesome Straw Hats Trick or Treating picture.

This week, Tom's has fallen even deeper into the ONE PIECE anime series, as he wrote more reviews of the current arc; then even covered classic DRAGON BALL Z. - - How sad is it that it's old enough to be considered classic? - - Tom also posted two Vice Pit videos on the topics of Cosplaying in Real Life, and The Worst Anime Video Games. Tom's buddy, Sam, posted a rather controversial editorial labeling the popular HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD as an example of anime misogyny. Check it out to see if you agree or disagree with his analysis. Nick Tapalansky's friend, Alex Eckman-Lawn, this week covered the topics of underrated anime in his article For NINJA SCROLL, VAMPIRE HUNTER D, Yoshiaki Kawajiri & Under-Rated "Japanimation" - - OTAKU COMING HOME.

With Halloween coming up, is anyone planning on dressing up as any anime or manga character? What's are you planning to watch or read this holiday season? I'm planning on reading ONE PIECE's Thriller Bark Arc - - I wish FUNimation would hurry and get this arc out - -, and catching up on the later DUSK MAIDEN OF AMNESIA episodes I missed.

Anime AMV Showcase

This week, I found myself nearly addicted to the EPIC RAP BATTLES OF HISTORY videos that you can find on YouTube. As much as I'd love to add one to this segment, they don't really belong. I just highly recommend you check those out after you watch this AMV for SOUL EATER. Which would also be a great choice for your Halloween enjoyment.

Remember, if you would like to submit something for the Spotlight. You can send me a PM, but please be sure to add "Spotlight" to the subject line. I can't stress how important that is because it might just be lost in my Inbox when I clear it.Even if you have worked on something yourself and are really proud of your work. Get to work, and make more content for the next Spotlight!! Jana!!
