Greetings, Anime Vice Community. Hope you all have a fun Easter. Tom and Sam gave a class on the VICE PIT this week on dealing with anime haters and the respect POKEMON deserves, Alex Eckman-Lawn wrote a new editorial on the The Best Anime Openings, andRachel Heine posted her thoughts on watching A CERTAIN SCIENTIFIC RAILGUN.
Well, we were denied that big crossover last week of ONE PIECE, DRAGON BALL Z, and TORIKO. While it's disappointing, there are other matters that are more important in the anime world. Noboru Yamaguchi, the author of THE FAMILIAR OF ZERO, has recently passed away after losing his battle with cancer. I hope you'll pay your respect by supporting some of his works this weekend....legally, of course.
HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD also made it's return this week, but not just in Japan's MONTHLY DRAGON AGE. Yen Press markedtheir first simulcast publishing with this HOTD Ch. 30. You can even purchase it for the Kindle. Now, what will become of TRIAGE X,Shoji Sato's other manga?

Anime AMV Showcase
Noboru Yamaguchi was a man who had love in his heart. An AMV dedicated to the love story of his creation seemed like an appropriate choice for this week's spotlight.
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!!
