AV MOD MATERIAL: Community Spotlight 12/14/12

Wiki updates, blogs, AMVs, and trailers are showcased in this week's community spotlight.

Greetings, Anime Vice Community. BLACK LAGOON had much of our attention this week, but ONE PIECE FILM: Z will most likely rule the weekend box office. Tom had solo duties on the VICE PIT through much of the week as Sam had a secret mission. Tom covered the idea of the Top Shonen to fill in for BLEACH and NARUTO and answered questions form the community.

Upon Sam's grand return, they both discussed the BLACK LAGOON series, and Sam reviewed the DVD/Blu-ray collection thatFUNimation recently released. The fun didn't end there as Nick Tapalansky spotlighted a live LEGEND OF ZELEDA orchestra. Not generally anime related, but still awesome.

Anime AMV Showcase

If you haven't heard of the anime series titled K. This AMV might peak your interest. I know it did for me.

In honor of ONE PIECE FILM: Z being released this weekend. Check out this trailer montage that was released in Japan with more footage from the film that hasn't been shown before.

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!!

K was one of the anime that i wanted to check out this past season, but didn't get a chance. Definitely want to check it out at some point though. :)

Mmm catching glimpses of current One Piece stuff always gets me excited to keep watching more One Piece. ;D

@AURON570: K is pretty great but there is a small lull the first few episodes in but it doesn't last long and it does have meaning so its not exactly superfluous.

Congrats everyone! K is a good anime. Like what Aleasha said, you got to muscle through the first few episodes when it gets good. I was lost on the first episode until I watch a few more.
