Community Spotlight 06/24/2011

FoxxFireArt runs down this week's community contributions.

Community Spotlight

Greetings Anime Vice Community, we sure have had a nice end to our drought of news for this week. A lot of good articles have been appearing on the front page, and I'm rather proud to of played a role in making a fair few of them. Last week's topic of the Strongest Women of Anime sure got a lot of attention and got people talking. Even seemed to get some new members involved. FUNimation announced they have aquired the rights to Fairy Tail and gave us a sample of some of the dub cast for the Fall 2011 release. We might even get to hear more about this and other news when Tom and Geo go to the Anime Expo next month. Tom's Watch & Learn article series have expanded from Mushi-Shi to add [C] - Control.

In some rather big anime news, on the 22nd the final episode of Black Lagoon Roberta's Blood Trail was released in Japan. I was able to check out the final episode, and to say that was graphic would be a severe understatement. It looks as if they changed some of the ending from the manga version. That's another series FUNi has talked about for a 2011 release, but they made that announcement before those production delays pushed several releases a few months back. Tom also talked about the Gatchaman Movie being suspended. In all honesty, I didn't know it was being made in the first place.

Next week Highschool of the Dead will be released on DVD & Blu-ray. Is anyone else already made their pre-orders? I've been spotting even lower price drops than what was reported a few weeks back.

Kudos to SickVisionz for getting over 100,000 points.

Congrats everyone!

@takashichea:

Crap, he went over 100K and I didn't announce it in the spotlight. I knew I should of checked. Sorry.

If you like the work I did on the final episode of Roberta's Blood Trail, you should see what I'm doing to the Black Lagoon franchise pages. I've been working to turn that into a fan's paradise for information.

Hey thanks for featuring my review! It really means a lot to me!

Good job everyone!
 
Pretty sure my blog for the week wasn't presented in the Spotlight because it would spark another fire of controversial heresy. I made the blog because I wanted to bring attention to a couple hentai manga that have nice stories and are funny. So if any of you are interested, here is the link: http://www.animevice.com/profile/sotyfan16/dunce-cap-nsfw-hentai-edition/107-7870/

Hey no broken links on my end! I love these, and as always offer my congratulations to all, great work, and with so much more to be done, I am confident with skilled editors such as the ones found on AV it will get done!

@FoxxFireArt: Technically I got it after you posted this so it's all good. Good article as usual.

I need to PM everyone again. FoxxFireArt's spotlight pages needs more love and nominations.

Spotlight

@FoxxFireArt:

I think I nominated Wales's Bakuman episodes and the characters last week. Can you please put them this week because Obscurefan and Wale's Bakuman Project ends since it is only a June project.

Pick any of these

Wales did 1-8. Wale and Obscurefan's best Character pages would be Akito Takagi, Moritaka Mashiro, Miho Azuki, Eji Nizuma,

Bigheart711on June 29, 2011 at 12:16 a.m.
Good job as usual, everyone! (And thanks to whomever nominated my latest blog for this!)

@FoxxFireArt:

I don't know if it's too late. I nominate my former partner's work on Soul Eater episode 2.

Edit: DragonHeroKnight did a fantastic job on episode 1 of Slayers Next.
