AV MOD MATERIAL: Community Spotlight 1/10/13

The AV community spotlight makes its grand return to start off 2013.

It's certainly been a few weeks since the Anime Vice Community Spotlight has graced the front page, but we're back after the holiday hiatus. Also, we're coming up on the beginning of the Year of the Snake, under the associated element of Yin Water. 2013 should be an interesting year for me. Seeing how I was born on the Year of the Snake, under Yang Fire. Same animal but opposing elements.

Tom and Sam were busy through the past few weeks posting reviews and more Vice Pit videos, there were reviews of the MASS EFFECT anime and MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO, then this week Alex Eckman-Lawn wrote up about art in anime with his editorial Art Matters in Anime, Damn It! - - OTAKU COMING HOME.

I'm not sure what happened, but I've seen an influx of new wiki editors appearing on the site, and new blog posters. I like seeing that, but with the increase in traffic also has been making for a lot more work for me deleting SPAM blogs. All of those just makes all the great anime/manga posts look ugly.

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!!

Great work and ! There is a lot of excellent wiki work going on! =)

Congrats everyone on your hard work!

@thuiscool:

It might be Konomi Suzue from Triage X.

@Aleasha:

Awesome job out there!

@takashichea: Thanks! =)

@takashichea: @thuiscool
She looks kind of like Suzue, but the hair is a bit different. It's been a while since I've read TRIAGE X, so I'm not really up on any events. I just liked this picture that Shouji Sato posted on his website recently.

@Aleasha: props to you for working on Tenjo Tenge. I still don't understand WTF happened in that series.

Aleashaon Jan. 11, 2013 at 6:48 a.m.

@buhssuht: Thanks! It ended without resolution as if there was going to be a second season at least the anime but I plan to read the manga which just ended a couple of years ago to see how everything turns out myself. =) It was a WHOLE LOTTA flashbacks lol. I actually believe over half the episodes in that anime where flashbacks if you can keep up with the flashbacks in the flashbacks its actually an interesting story.

Edit:

PS. Bunshichi Tawara is a Bad Ass!

buhssuhton Jan. 11, 2013 at 12:04 p.m.

@Aleasha: at some point the story flashback SO far that it travels back in time. I'm not making this up

Aleashaon Jan. 11, 2013 at 12:15 p.m.

@buhssuht: LOL i don't doubt it.

@FoxxFireArt:

I'm not familiar with Triage X, and I recognized his art style. I went down every work he did and look at any character that looks like her: red hair, green glasses, and crazy look.
