For any of you out there in the community that were wondering why there wasn't an Anime Vice Community Spotlight last week. There wasn't a national holiday you missed, and it wasn't Hayao Miyazaki's birthday -- that's in January. The real cause is that last Friday my area of Kentucky was hit with some serious storms and tornado warning. Sure, I could have written it late that Thursday, but I had been up late playing Uncharted 3 multiplayer. How was I to know that putting it off till Friday morning wasn't going to be an option? Damn, my selective omniscience. It never works when I really need it. Thankfully, my area wasn't hit at all. Didn't even lose power.
Nick and I were still able to post the Amateur vs. Expert for Persona 4 Episode 20. That turned into a wild debate about the use of fan service. Not really warranted in a series that uses it so little.

I've created a special bounty for the Katanagatari franchise page. I've yet to get to watch any of it, but it looks amazing. The page is blank, and I've set a bounty for anyone who can fill it out in fine detail.

Anime AMV Showcase
This week isn't for so much an AMV, but a seriously impressive fan made trailer for the One Piece: Marineford arc. It's well edited and has a really nice musical score that I feel matches the One Piece theme. It does a really good job of setting the stage for the war of this arc without spoiling much at all.
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!!
