Community Spotlight: 10/20/11

Take a break from summoning your persona and check out this week's community spotlight!

Community Spotlight

We've been having a great week on Anime Vice. Time to recap the events in this week's Anime Vice Community Spotlight. This is one of the few Whiskey Media sites that didn't have any Arkham City coverage. Though, Tom Pinchuk did give us a review of TRIGUN: BADLANDS RUMBLE -- DVD/Blu-Ray, and he brought us the news on the much rumored AKIRA Live Action movie. I say rumored, because it's been off and on so often. Can that possibly deliver the goods with a 90 Mill budget and a PG-13 rating?

If you hadn't noticed yet, I have teamed up with Whiskey Intern Nick ( Babylonian) for a new Anime Vice feature article called Amateur vs. Expert. I am taking on the role of the anime expert to Nick and guiding him through some of the more detailed points of anime. Currently, we are going to be working on the Persona 4 anime series together. Be sure to check out our fist installment on Persona 4 The Animation Ep. 2.

Don't forget the fanart contest Tom is also heading to win a free Blu-ray/DVD of LEGEND OF THE MILLENNIUM DRAGON. Check HEREfor details.

Remember, if you would like to submit something for the Spotlight. You can send me a PM, but please be sure to add "Spotlight" to the subject line. I can't stress how important that is because it might just be lost in my Inbox when I clear it. Even if you have worked on something yourself and are really proud of your work. Get to work, and make more content for the next Spotlight!! Jana!!

Congrats everyone! Quite the Spotlight this week.

FoxxFireArt, you pointed out my Off-Topic blog? Those get barely any views and no comments because they are not related to the site. It makes me a little sad but oh well. Thanks for the mention but I think it would have been better to include my blog The Guide to Making Guides instead since I made it to help users be better prepared for writing Guides.
