AV MOD MATERIAL: Quick Picks (3/28/13)

A vampire hunter, element benders and an apperant robot battle are witnessed by Bigheart711 and Takashichea this time around.

Happy Easter week, everyone! Another two-parter has submerged since a lot of crazy stuff happened to us over the previous week. This time, we're really digging deep into the already spacious rabbit hole.

Bigheart711's Pick

Not of the arc I'm talking about, but it looks cool.
Not of the arc I'm talking about, but it looks cool.

The pick I choose this time is Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search. The reason why I even picked this was because some of my friends ended up enjoying it, even though they went in to look into an character's backstory. It sounds like it's more than it even seems, so I might be checking it out soon.

Takashichea's Pick

I (Bigheart) assume that this is part of what happened with Taka.

My pick would be Fate/Stay Night. It's a good romantic story, but it's a bit slow. For fans who are new, you might hate Shirou and adore either Saber, Rin, or Archer.

Now that our rather brief opinions are exposed, what will you pick?
