AV MOD MATERIAL: Community Spotlight 4/26/13

The wiki database is having a bountiful harvest for the Spring.

Greetings, Anime Vice Community. We got two VICE PITs from Tom and Sam this week, and Sam was...passionate for the topic of Battle Anime and when they go bad. They then analyzed ATTACK ON TITAN to a level no one could have imagined. Alex Eckman-Lawnwrote a new editorial on the Top 5 Ultra Violent Anime, and Rachel Heine posted her thoughts on watching several of the Spring anime series.

This week my mother asked me about what sort of manga series would be good for a twelve year old boy. She was asking on behalf of one of her coworkers looking for something for her son. ONE PIECE and FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST were two suggestions, but I directed her more toward FAIRY TAIL and NARUTO. Would you have any suggestions for a young kid just getting into manga?

Ditto, except I have finals this week.

Rurouni Kenshin and the Kingdom Hearts mangas did it for me. My concern with directing a 12 year old boy's mother, and the concern my grandmother had when she was looking for some manga for me, was sexual content, which Naruto and fairy Tail have quite a lot of to those who aren't so used to just how Manga is. One Piece falls in that camp too, whereas FMA is pretty... gritty for a twelve year old.

Rurouni Kenshin, Case Closed, Eyeshield 21 are good options.

FoxxFireArt moderator on April 29, 2013 at 12:39 p.m.

@SamJaz:

Thanks for the suggestions, but I would never recommend that CASE CLOSED abomination to anyone to read. The character name changes render that series unreadable, as far as I see it.

SamJazon April 29, 2013 at 12:40 p.m.

@FoxxFireArt: Lol, read the manga for the first 500 or sho chapters, but dropped it for not going anywhere. Heard about what they did in the dub. Shameful.

@FoxxFireArt: @SamJaz:

Lot of these shonen manga have fan service. It's hard to escape them. A shonen manga I know that doesn't have a lot of them especially during the beginning would be Zatch Bell or Shaman King. It follows the shonen archetypes: having big dreams and fighting against evil. Like FMA, Shaman King is a maturing series that can turn dark and gritty at the end.

SamJazon April 30, 2013 at 11:02 p.m.

@takashichea:

Yeah, fan service is pretty unavoidable nowadays.
