Community Spotlight 5/29/12

Toonami's return, Persona 4 True Ending episode preview, and One Piece themed weddings are some of the stories we covered for this week.

After an extended absence, we finally return with the latest Anime Vice Comm-Service. The Toonami return was some of the biggest news of this month, but there were several other stories that may have slipped through the cracks and escaped your notice. It's here that the members of the AV mods try and bring you some of the stories we thought you should know.

Some of the features here are not set in stone. More features could possibly be added. I hope you enjoy this hard work to keep things moving on Anime Vice. This is all work we do in our own time. Please, be sure to visit the pages listed below, comment, and post on Twitter. Thank you, and enjoy!!
