AV MOD MATERIAL: Quick Picks - 11/2/12

It was a hectic week for me as I was quite busy with real-life problems, but we finally managed to get it done, Tom. Here's everything you can send as an article. Also including the banner that I made!

What's up, AV? This is Bigheart711 replacing sora_thekey as the intro writer while he's away. He won't be able to pick anything in the articles for an amount of time, but Me and Taka thank him humbly for letting us continue where we left off. Crashing this week's party is the Venus Vanguard, Some evil flowers, Mina Tepes, The Currency Word Creatures, Twilight's Main Characters and Antagonists and Alucard himself. The Sailor Senshi, Master Negi and Celty arrive to help HeroMan, Ciel Phantomhive, The Mochizuki General Hospital Staff and Yuki Nagato with the matter, but is it even enough? (Completely and utterly unfair battle. I know. :p)

Bigheart711's Pick: My pick is Hellsing Ultimate because I've been interested in checking it out for a while now, but not before seeing the first Hellsing anime series. I have a feeling that it'll probably scare me at some points, but it'll be one of the best things that I haven't seen yet despite that. BTW, Happy Belated Halloween to everyone that had fun (especially the people in scary costumes)!

"The rogue vampire Alucard is the Hellsing Organization's deadliest instrument in its mission to protect the British Empire from satanic ghouls and Nazi freaks. He is not alone in his assault on the occult; the master has a servant. Policewoman Seras Victoria accepted Alucard's gift of dark salvation after falling in the line of duty, and now the remnants of her human soul struggle against her growing vampire urges. Together, they haunt the shadows as a sinister force of good - and tonight the foggy streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey."
Soul Eater Not Vol. 1 JPN (Sep 2011)
Soul Eater Not Vol. 1 JPN (Sep 2011)

Takashichea's Pick: My pick will be Soul Eater Not! since I enjoyed Soul Eater. I haven't read it yet, and it has a different look with a female trio for the main cast. I checked a fan's little review of it, and it's more of a spin-off series that is more about the daily lives of the students in DWA with a bit of eyecandy.

"Tsugumi knows firsthand how difficult it can be to find your perfect partner at Death Weapon Meister Academy. So when fellow dorm-dweller Jacqueline admits her desire to be partnered with Kim - the notorious "Witch of the Girls' Dorm" - Tsugumi is eager to help her friend. But Kim's prickly personality makes it seemingly impossible for anyone to get close to her, let alone a prospective partner. Why is Kim so intent on keeping everyone away?"

Now that we unveiled our picks for the week, what are yours?
