AV MOD MATERIAL: Community Spotlight 8/16/2013

While I spent the weekend entranced by MAGI, these users have been spending some time fleshing out more of the 2013 Summer season.

Greetings, Anime Vice Community. Tom and Sam posted a slew of new Vice Pit videos on the front page covering issues of EUREKA SEVEN, the Saiyan Saga of DBZ, and they covered the topic of favorite guilty pleasures. Tom also went retro this week and posted a review of FIST OF THE NORTH STAR. You better read it if you haven't already, or you may already be dead.

I've gotten 15 episodes into MAGI, and I'm really enjoying the series. Seems like I picked a nice time to jump in since I've been hearing about a new season coming out this Fall.

Congrats everyone!

Please check out the cultural experiences by our folks:

Edit:

Glad to see you, Foxx, enjoying Magi. It's a good series with some flaws. I hope Balbadd arc wasn't too long for you. I bet you like Morgiana since I noticed you edit that page last week or so.

@takashichea:

The Balbadd Arc does drag on for quite a long time. Makes me wonder how much of that is anime padding on time.

@FoxxFireArt:

Magi anime was rushing until Balbadd. It seems like this anime has padding, but it doesn't. For the manga, it was chapters 32 - 76 about 45 chapters for this arc. Only 11 episodes cover it. Compared to the next arc, it spans 77-109, and the anime cover it with 8 episodes.

I'm guessing an average Magi episode covers 4-5 chapters. I remember Fairy Tail was stalling, and it covers 2 chapters weekly. For Attack on Titan, it's a monthly manga, so the episode covers 1.5 chapters at most.
