For the record - - keeping up with any sort of business while attending two major conventions in the space of two weeks is tough. As in, it’s sort of like trying to juggle tea cups whilst doing a shuffle step. If you’ve been enjoying the content on the AV feed during all this time, please know that it’s the product of some very harried crunch hours.
As hard as it is to keep producing content in the middle of such madness, it’s damn near impossible to perform administrational duties (such as writing community updates like this) in the thick of it. However, now that I’ve finally got a minute or two, it’s time to share some major Anime Vice updates with you lunatics. I was thinking of doing a write-up of Comic Con, but there’s not much to say that wasn’t already covered on the Vice Pit, so this was more pertinent.
As you've noticed, things have been in flux here for the past few months and I wasn't able to make any official announcements until things had settled. Well, things have settled for the time being and, after all this time, you lunatics deserve to be in the know.
Since Anime Expo, I’ve officially stepped up in my duties here on the site. I suppose my title for the time being is Editor-in-Chief. Most of the content here is still going to be produced by me, though, and that isn’t all too different from how the situation’s been on the site, anyway. Thus, it seems like a different title would be more appropriate...
We’ll go with Shogun. I’m the Shogun of Anime Vice, and I’ll conduct business exactly like this shogun.
So what is different, then? Well, I’ll now have more time, ability and license to make the site as fun for everybody as it can be. Following that, you can be expecting a lot more videos. Ridiculous ones. I’ll be luring you all down into the Vice Pit much more often for some chewing of the fat with myself, Sam Weller and whatever hapless bystanders I can lasso in. We might be doing other types of videos as well - - I’m especially eager to kung fu fight on camera again. I’ll also be pulling in more interviews with fascinating subjects in the otaku sphere like Richie Branson and AX Staffers like Marlan Moore.
Unfortunately, GodLen won’t be able to stick around, so I’ll be the sole staff member for the time being. However, if you’ve noticed the handful of AV_MOD_MATERIAL posts from last week, you’ll see that I’m now able to push and promote material produced by the mods of our community. You can expect more of that.
I’m also talking to Babylonian about doing some features as well, so there’s going to be plenty of content coming at you. Indeed, this Shogun's still juggling those teacups in mid-shuffle, so I can’t say too much about the new features lurking around the corner except to assert that they'll all be rad.
Thanks for sticking with Anime Vice through thick and thin, you lunatics. Brace yourself for oodles of more fun from the craziest, wackiest and, at times, mot enlightening anime site around!
