Community Spotlight 4/12/12

The day may have changed, but the wiki stays the same. Ten-thousand and Grooowing!

Yes, I know this is actually Thursday. You may be wondering, "Hey, I thought the Anime Vice Community Spotlight was only posted on Fridays. This is some messed up $%#@!". Well, you may or may not have actually thought that specifically. Still, we are looking to mix things up a tad on the front page, and we're moving the Community Spotlight to Thursdays to see how it fits. Are you excited, angry, or even slightly aroused?

Some may have noticed a new style of spotlight that was posted Tuesday. The Anime Vice: Comm-Service is a special hub article that will guide you to some of the news about the manga and anime industry. This is the content that myself and others are bringing to both inform and entertain you. We hope to be bringing you more features as the weeks go on. Please, be sure to check it out and support that feature.

The news week was an interesting assortment. Tom reviewed both DRAGON BALL Vol. 1 and FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST BROTHERHOOD: THE SACRED STARS OF MILOS (loooong title), and he posted an awesome article about a working AKIRAstyle bike. Nick posted a really interesting story on the confusion between what Sentai Filmworks is saying about the PERSON 4 dub.

Anime AMV Showcase

It was a hard selection for the AMV this week. At first i wanted to use this one for BLACK LAGOON: ROBERTA'S BLOOD TRAIL, but watching it for review made me realize that the content may been too mature. Not sexually, but seriously violent. If you ever saw the series, you'd understand why this part was never shown on TV. I then almost used a nice FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST BROTHERHOOD, but I think the song appeared in another AMV I once posted. I went with one from a collection of anime and a pretty good song. Not something you've probably ever heard used in an AMV before.

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!!

The community spotlight LIVES! I'm excited to start checking out some spring anime. Surprisingly all the anime (except Eureka Seven Ao) I want to check out is available on crunchyroll this season. =D

Congrats everyone!

Even though I'm not finished with Shiro's page, I thank for his detailed manga volume pages for Deadman Wonderland. I used it to double check Shiro's page.

@AURON570:

I'll be tweeting your work!

@buhssuht:

Hopefully, some good changes will come.
