AV MOD MATERIAL: Community Spotlight 4/12/13

It's a week to cheer for more series returns, we talked about Pokemon, and we pay our respects to an influential author who passed on last week.

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?

RIP Noboru Yamaguchi 2/11/72 - 4/4/13

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.

Good job everyone!

Congrats everyone!

Kudos to , , and my teammate, for a job well done in the wiki.

Huh, two users? I know it's . Wait, is me? I didn't write that much blogs this week.

This week is weird. I didn't have the usual wiki projects from Fall and Winter 2013 even my long time project, Fairy Tail's anime, ended. They were all done last week. I'm getting into wiki projects for the Spring 2013 series.

For those who are new, please check the #Anime Vice Discussion Threads! Daniel, the crew, and I are setting up discussions for the new anime series this spring. We're also setting up wiki projects. It will be cool to make teams with new and veteran editors.

I'm a cool guy, and I can show you the ropes.

Edit:

Check out the Robotics;Notes Wiki Updates: Episode Summaries are Complete blog. Acura Max and I finish the episode summaries.
