Anime Vice News

Community Spotlight 7/19/12 -- [AV MOD MATERIAL]

Changes, convention videos, farewells, and ONE PIECE movies are what filled the news this week, but come see what happened in the wiki in the community spotlight.

Hallo, Anime Vice Community!! (That's not a typo. I spelled it like that on purpose for kicks.) Fresh off his trip to San Diego Comic Con, Tom not only posted a video on his trip, but he was finally able to announce some of the changes coming forAnime Vice now that he's the official Editor-in-Chief. You should check out his articles on the front page.

In some sad news, former staff writer and Shonen Jump Trilogy reviewer Godlen has official left the staff of Anime Vice. He's written his farewell article for the news page. I hope you all go read it and post some thanks to all his years of hard work bringing the site reviews on NARUTO, ONE PIECE, and BLEACH.

No need to shed too many tears. The community did a lot of amazing work, and we had posts on the news page of SDCC cosplayers, manga reviews, and a trailer for the new ONE PIECE movie coming out in December. Now, let's check out the spotlight on the community work put into the wiki database.
