Community Spotlight: 12/16/11

Christmas specials making your eyes roll into the back of your head? Fix that up by checking out this week's community spotlight!

Hope everyone is ready for the next Anime Vice Community Spotlight. The end of the year is inching ever closer to us. Hanukkah is next work and Christmas is just after. Hope you got your shopping done (I haven't), and I know a lot of online retailers are offering some nice discounts on anime/manga.

Nick and I posted our recent Persona 4 - Amateur vs. Expert, and it's developed into a really interesting discussion. Some of it even about the episode. User sotyfan16 gave his thoughts on the Epic Moments in Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. There's also a the discussion on the BLEACH Lost Shinigami Substitute Arc.

An awesome video was brought to my attention that took the Persona 4 anime and looped the audio from the Giant Bomb Endurance Run over the very scenes and added Vinny and Jeff's commentary. It's really hilarious. This deserves a special mention.

Wonderful Wikis

I would like to give a special nod to Bocam for adding manga volumes and episodes to Toaru Majutsu no Index, A Certain Scientific Railgun, and Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere. He joined last year, but recently has been adding a lot of pages for the database.Sophronimos has been doing the same.

Streamline Story Arc Initiative

Anime Vice is working to streamline our wiki to make it stronger. These are some pages that could use some work from our wiki editors. Each have special bounties assigned.

Good job to everyone mentioned! I bet there will be plenty of stuff coming out in the coming weeks with many users being on break.

On my end, the next Guide is still on hold unless to get to doing it tonight. But what I do plan on doing today for posting this week are some new Dunce Caps!

@DocHaus:

Awesome! I still need to start listening to them.

Is there a mirror for that GB Persona 4 mashup? Maybe on a website that isn't in the pocket of Big Media?
