AV MOD MATERIAL: Community Spotlight 7/26/2013

Ichigo may be taking the rest of the summer off, but the spotlight soldiers on after last week's break.

Greetings, Anime Vice Community. Despite being busy with San Diego Comic Con, Tom and Sam still shared a lot of new video features with the community. You should be sure to browse the News page to check them all out. They even posted a special SDCC Vice Pit.

Though the spotlight was on break last week, that didn't stop the users on Anime Vice from putting some work into the database. This is almost a double sized edition. There were some new wiki editors at work. Always nice to see some new names and users focusing on different series.

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!!

Shoutout to B Gata H Kei (available on Funimation.com). I was surprised by how it dealt with sexual themes. It uses tropes, chibi and stuff, but it's mostly tongue-in-cheek humor and has a pretty mature outlook underneath it all. It's a fun comedy that challenges typical ecchi anime themes.

Awesome work everyone! did a fantastic job on the B Gata H Kei page. Makes me curious about the anime until I read the premise in the wiki. It reminded me of Astarotte's Toy back in summer of 2012 where I thought it was a reverse harem. I'm not falling in the same mistake with this one. I'm tempted to watch this.
