Anime Vice News

Community Spotlight 5/24/12

Toonami set for its grand revival this weekend, Richie Branson has a new rap ready to launch, interviews with the REDAKAI team, and some really amazing wiki editing by the community.

Hope everyone in the Anime Vice community had an excellent week. Some of these new users have been sure keeping me busy in the wiki editing queue. Always love seeing new members adding to the content. Tom has been keeping the front page busy with some of in interviews for the week. First there was the Richie Branson interview about his latest single, and he's also been doing several interviews with the creative team behind REDAKAI. Don't forget that Toonami is set to return this weekend. The anime DEADMAN WONDERLAND will be among the lineup.

I know I said last week that we'd try and return the AV Comm-Service, but my neighbor over the weekend fell and broke her hip. I have been helping her daughter take care of her yard while my neighbor is in the hospital. I was also the only mod who wrote any news blogs, so, we'll get back to business next Tuesday.

Anime AMV Showcase

This AMV for KATANAGATARI was an easy pick for this week. I'm not much for the performer, but the editing work is really well done. Too often, AMVs just use animation straight out and put it to music. This one mixes and matches. As per unusual, there is a spoiler warning about this one. The art style of this series is so amazing. I'm still shocked we haven't had more attention for this series in the U.S.

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!!

I love the AMV feature of the community spotlights. I haven't watch a lot of anime, but I thank you (Fox) and Wales for getting me into Deadman Wonderland. It's too bad that the anime is not that great.

Congrats everyone in their blogs, reviews, and wiki edits! Keep up the great work. Kudos to my teammates! Don't forget to tweet the wiki tasks. We need more people. YukaTA is going solo on those tasks while last week, DestinyHeroKnight went commando with the Gintama volumes. He added volumes and table of contents up to 23. That is a lot.

You can count on Anime Vice for your daily anime needs!
