Anime Vice News

Community Spotlight 4/6/12

The AV community takes the spotlight this week with a set of yet even more amazing blogs and wiki edits.

On top of many of the more recent changes going on, it seems that Whiskey Media has had another drastic set of changes. The ever adored Perpetual Puppy Lover, Matt Rorie, has stepped down from the very website that he helped launch,Screened.com. While nothing that drastic has taken place here in Anime Vice -- yet. There is going to be some minor changes in the content you find on the front page. The Mods and myself wont be posting anymore news and episode reviews on the front page for the time being. I am very happy that I can still continue to bring you all the AV Community Spotlight. The articles created by the Mods will be written in our blogs then compiled together for a special spotlight articles on the AV front page. Keep your eyes out for that coming next week.

Tom has not only continued his Watch & Learn series, but he also had an interview with the creator of the Gundam Rap, Richie Branson. You should check it out HERE. I did some math over the past week and figured that Anime Vice has roughly over 20,000 characters in our database. Facts such as these are why I'm always proud of the wiki editors here. Remember to post links to these pages you work on to Twitter or other anime form sites. Show off your great work to other people who may then join the family.

Anime AMV Showcase

Easily one of the best anime theme songs to come out of the past few years has to be "Happily Ever After" from Gurren Lagann. It's really hard to listen to this and not feel your blood start pumping and make you excited. It's perfect AMV fodder, and I'm surprised there aren't more of it out there. This song deserves it a hell of a lot more than all those endless "Bring Me to Life" and "In the End" AMVs out there. I can't imagine ever tiring of hearing this.

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!!

Congrats everyone and kudos to my teammate! That AMV got me curious about Gurren Lagann. I should try out the anime. It looks cool! Thanks for spotlighting my team's blogs. I feel like an overachiever now. It's thanks to my teammates who wrote those weekly reports. I'm grateful to them.

If there are any fans of Katanagatari and The Familiar of Zero F, please help out. Those wiki bounties mean a lot. I can't do bounties on animes I haven't even seen.

Wait! The mods can't post weekly articles anymore? Does that mean Geo can't post his Sket Dance articles? I need to talk to him. I have some weekly articles of Sket Dance's ep. 50 and 51 on Sket Dance Wikia.

While nothing that drastic has taken place here in Anime Vice -- yet.

Don't say that Foxx!

Edit:

I need to start working on the characters. Check out the Community Spotlight 2012 checklist to see if your work has been spotlighted!

2nd Edit:

Why is page titled community spotlight 3/30/12?

sotyfan16on April 6, 2012 at 4:49 p.m.

I just realized today is my 2nd Viceversary. Damn! I'll have to get a blog together to celebrate.

Great job Vicers in the Wiki and blogs. Thanks for mentioning both of recent Dunce Cap episodes. I was going to PM you to feature them both since one covers Fairy Tail and the other IS <Infinite Stratos> (which still doesn't come out for another 4 days). Be sure you check them out!

@takashichea:

Gurren Lagann is a good series. I have a Dunce Cap episode already done from last year so take a look if you haven't already to see if it's up your alley.

Destinyheroknighton April 6, 2012 at 5:45 p.m.

Nice work you guys

I really don't know what's up with this text editor. I bold all of those wiki pages when I wrote this. It worked on the blog section.

@takashichea:

Gurren Lagann is a great series, and I think it's on HULU. But I'd recommend watching the subtitled version -- which I don't think is on HULU. It's not that the dub is bad. There is just a certain level of passion lacking in everyone's words, and passion is the heart of this series. Even down to Kamina's non-sense speeches. He has an energy about him that the dub lacks.

I should warn you that this AMV is using a lot from the Gurren Lagann movie, which is just sort of a revamp of evens from the anime in higher detail and quality.

Why is page titled community spotlight 3/30/12?

Because apparently I'm an Effin' idiot and forgot to change the date when I copied it from last week's spotlight. I copy the previous spotlights to start off to save me time from having to retype everything. It just going to have to stay, because Tom is the one who posts these for me.

EganTheVile1on April 6, 2012 at 6:45 p.m.
Though the date is a tad off, congrats to all, these always pump me up to better myself as an editor/blogger, and am so honored that two pieces of my work, a blog and a wiki article (Thundercats 7) made the cut this week. I really dig the other articles and blogs featured this week as well, especially Dunce Cap by Sotyfan16 and Fairy Tale by takashichea

Congrats to everyone tolling away on the Wiki! Keep it up. The Spring 2012 anime season has started. What are everyone's plans on show coverage? I've been working on Ozma so far. It ends in 3 more episode and I'm not sure what I will pick up for editing after that. Maybe Space Brothers if it stays dormant or something else that I fall in love with while sampling shows.

I've thought about doing the Franchise page, especially since my name is at the top of it due to my work on the anime series, but I really have no familiarity with anything related to it other than its singular anime series. Plus, I got burned out on wiking the series during a week long period where there was a nasty bug that would randomly delete images and even thinking about brings back memories of hours wasted and effort down the drain and turns me off from going back to it.

@sickVisionz
God, that image deleting bug was just a nightmare. I'm glad that got fixed.  It was just so random.
EganTheVile1on April 7, 2012 at 12:28 a.m.
@sickVisionz:  If you cant guess my plans on show coverage you have not been paying attention, TF Prime, Voltron Force, Thundercats, and maybe some work on Cowboy Bebop, DBZ, and Bleach in an effort to improve some pages
takashichea moderator on April 7, 2012 at 12:34 a.m.

@FoxxFireArt:

Thanks for the info! I'll gladly watch Gurren Lagann then finish it off with the movie.

@sickVisionz:

There are times I get burned out. I just do little things bit by bit each week. It's overwhelming to work on a whole project by yourself. Even a short anime that has 12 episodes, it has a lot of characters and unique wiki pages to fill out. We need more wiki editors working in teams. (It's too bad that most of us are busy with school and work). I should try out Katanagatari and The Familiar of Zero F. If those animes get me to love it, I'll work on the wiki. It's no use to work on something you don't have a passion for.
