Community Spotlight -- 1/9/2014

Judging by this week's spotlight, not many of you rested over the holidays.

Happy New Year, Anime Vice Community! Sure, I'm technically a week late, but this is my first time addressing you all this year. So, it counts. I may have taken a few weeks off, but Tom was delivering a steady stream for you anime junkies.

There was the news about the EVANGELION / ATTACK ON TITAN theme parks. I watched some of those videos. Boy, talk about nightmare fodder in the making. He then took a look back on BLACK LAGOON, but my favorite was his choice to dive into later life DETECTIVE CONAN. There was also some big revelations with the Scarlett Johansson signing on to play the lead in Hollywood's interpretation of GHOST IN THE SHELL. You all can decide on that outcome.

Anime AMV Showcase

Picking this week's AMV was easy. I stumbled across this really well edited video for KILL LA KILL, my personal favorite of last year. The song is by ONE OK ROCK and already been added to my personal workout list. I've listened to a few of their songs. They really seem to like fusing English and Japanese lyrics. An editing decision that I really enjoy is mixing in some of KILL LA KILL's dialog among the song. It's also a nice touch to start it off with Satsuki's heel stomp.

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!!

My mistake, I linked Seven Deadly Sins Vol. 3 to a spam bot. I fixed the link.
