Community Spotlight: Can't Nobody Hold AV Down

Anime Vice, greatest community online? Yessir.

Welcome, it's time for the Anime Vice Community Spotlight! The week has finally come, and the award winning Summer Wars has been released on DVD/Blu-ray in the U.S. Did you pre-order your own copy? The price on the Blu-ray dropped down to as low as $19.99 on Amazon, and Evangelion 2.22 is also available for pre-ordering. Captions are hot again on Anime Vice tasks this week. The users are being called upon to caption images on the site to help boost image traffic. There are a lot of points to be earned, and All you have to do is write DETAILED captions of the images of the galleries. This week's theme is hot sexy girls. 
 
For the news of the week. It was the week of Valentine's, and we had a mod organized list for the Valentine's Day Anime Marathon. This wasn't just for the girls. The animes also had some fanservice and action in them mixed with the romance. Share these animes again with your someone special this weekend if you missed it. Tom Pinchuk had a Watch & Learn on the first episode of Cat Shit One, and AV moderator Sora wrote an incredibly detailed comparison of Summer Wars to Digimon: Our War Game.

2 mentions, woo! There were some good blogs last week and a lot of Wiki work (some of which I partook in). I'm glad so much hard work is going into the site from so many users.

I just now noticed that my Drunk Blog got mentioned on this...Anime Vice supports alcoholism I guess.
