This week on Anime Vice's Quick Picks we have bunnies, gods, aliens, samurai and much more. It's certain that when it comes to anime and manga, there is always a lot to choose from.
Bigheart711's Picks: I'm not very familiar with any of the anime this week, but I have read some Bamboo Blade, Dohedero and Soul Eater. Each of which I thought were decent. I haven't checked out Bunny Drop, Tenjo Tenge nor the manga version of Madoka Magica, but they sound the most interesting (plus, Gon looks cute). Lastly, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure's original fighting game got an HD remake and I know someone at my college that'll put a lot of people in the ringer the same way I did as Chie in Persona 4 Arena. The reason I mention it is because he still owns the Dreamcast copy of Jojo and has been kicking people's snot in, along with his (in-game) horse...
takashichea's Picks: I enjoyed the Puella Magi Madoka Magica anime, which was recommended to me by BigHeart711. I would love to try reading the manga adaptation though. I have never tried watching the Shakugan no Shana series (although Daniel, sickVisionz, Buhssuht, and I have discussed the tsundere characters for some of the mash-up blogs) or Bunny Drop, so I'm interested in trying them out. Plus, Soul Eater andBamboo Blade are on my little sister's reading list. As for everything else, I haven't tried it or I have no interest in it.
sora_thekey's Picks: Unlike my comrades above, I don't have a lot to say about this week's releases. I do agree with Bigheart711 that Gon's manga cover is incredibly cute! Also, a new volume to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya manga, a franchise I greatly enjoy and can't go without mentioning, is released.
