Anime Vice News

Community Spotlight -- 11/07/2014

The 7th of November may not be as memorable as the 5th, but we never forget the chance to spotlight some of our more dedicated users.

Greetings, Anime Vice Community! The series PARASYTE - THE MAXIM really seemed to have gotten under Tom's skin this week. On top of several reviews for the series episodes, he also posted what is a trailer for a live-action interpretation. Matt did join Tom for a new addition to the Vice Pit. This time they discussed how anime fandom has changed since the 90's. You should check all of these articles out on the News page.

The most surprising/confusing news of the week was that ATTACK ON TITAN will be merging in with the Marvel comic universe in some form. While that sounds like fan fiction, this will be an officially sanctioned cross-over.

There is word that next Spring the NARUTO franchise will be getting a new short-term series. Though the content may be a mystery, I've been hearing rumblings that Masashi Kishimoto won't be the artist or writer. Wouldn't that be strange?

Anime AMV Showcase

This is one of the more random mixes I've seen in an AMV, but the editing and rhythm of the song really makes this work. I dare you not to tap your toe to this one.

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!!

Shoutouts to for working so hard on the wiki. Apparently, she only joined this past august, and has since racked up a sizable 64k wiki points. Holy crap (that's almost as much as I have)! xD

@AURON570: Thanks! Its really addicting. =)

Great work as always everyone I see quite a few character pages up there which is great as we have billions of those that need work. I am more comfortable with franchise wiki work as I am not sure how to come at the character pages just yet but could be lack of confidence hidden behind excuses as well though. =p Anyhow great work everyone makes me proud to be a part of the AV community!

@AURON570: @Aleasha:

Character pages aren't bad. I'm more of an episode guy, and I find character pages like tempering a sword. If you guys need help, I'll be there.

Oh yeah, congrats Aleasha for another fantastic job on the franchise pages. You're making this community beautiful.

Kudos to and for their stellar character pages!

Awesome job - My teammate who is working hard on the Robotics;Notes project and updating us with new info on the new winter anime series.

@takashichea: Thanks! Your the best and you know if you ever need help im down! =)

@Aleasha: @takashichea: I preferably work on franchise because there are more to write, as in different topics. I get bored with character pages because at some point I feel like I'm writing same thing over and over, especially when their story arcs intertwines with each other.

Thanks guys for the spotlight / support for our podcast - it's appreciated and we like to give shout-outs to Anime Vice on each ep. ThumbsUp

Aleashaon Jan. 17, 2013 at 11:26 a.m.

@buhssuht: Yeah I can see that being one of my issues too same reason if im doing both series and franchise page I usually do one and save the other for whenever im bored. It also makes me use different descriptions breaking up the monotony for someone who might look at both pages.

takashichea moderator on Jan. 17, 2013 at 11:28 a.m.

@buhssuht:

I get the same feeling when I work on the episode pages and transfer info to the story arcs for the characters. Sometimes, I go overboard and need to shorten the story arcs. (if you guys see the Haru Glory page that I haven't trim down yet).

Edit:

Oh yeah guys! I completed the 2012 list for the community spotlight list. Right now, I'm updating the 2013 community list.
