Anime AMV Showcase

IKKI TOUSEN was never a series that really grabbed my attention for very long, but this AMV was still a well done production that I felt it was worth sharing in the showcase. I also wasn't finding a whole lot that I liked much.

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!!

Shoutouts to for working so hard on the wiki. Apparently, she only joined this past august, and has since racked up a sizable 64k wiki points. Holy crap (that's almost as much as I have)! xD

@AURON570: Thanks! Its really addicting. =)

Great work as always everyone I see quite a few character pages up there which is great as we have billions of those that need work. I am more comfortable with franchise wiki work as I am not sure how to come at the character pages just yet but could be lack of confidence hidden behind excuses as well though. =p Anyhow great work everyone makes me proud to be a part of the AV community!

@AURON570: @Aleasha:

Character pages aren't bad. I'm more of an episode guy, and I find character pages like tempering a sword. If you guys need help, I'll be there.

Oh yeah, congrats Aleasha for another fantastic job on the franchise pages. You're making this community beautiful.

Kudos to and for their stellar character pages!

Awesome job - My teammate who is working hard on the Robotics;Notes project and updating us with new info on the new winter anime series.

@takashichea: Thanks! Your the best and you know if you ever need help im down! =)

@Aleasha: @takashichea: I preferably work on franchise because there are more to write, as in different topics. I get bored with character pages because at some point I feel like I'm writing same thing over and over, especially when their story arcs intertwines with each other.

Thanks guys for the spotlight / support for our podcast - it's appreciated and we like to give shout-outs to Anime Vice on each ep. ThumbsUp

Aleashaon Jan. 17, 2013 at 11:26 a.m.

@buhssuht: Yeah I can see that being one of my issues too same reason if im doing both series and franchise page I usually do one and save the other for whenever im bored. It also makes me use different descriptions breaking up the monotony for someone who might look at both pages.

takashichea moderator on Jan. 17, 2013 at 11:28 a.m.

@buhssuht:

I get the same feeling when I work on the episode pages and transfer info to the story arcs for the characters. Sometimes, I go overboard and need to shorten the story arcs. (if you guys see the Haru Glory page that I haven't trim down yet).

Edit:

Oh yeah guys! I completed the 2012 list for the community spotlight list. Right now, I'm updating the 2013 community list.
