Community Spotlight - Chinese New Year Edition

Gong hai fat choi!

Welcome, Anime Vice Lunatics to not only the first week of February, but also to this week's Anime Vice Community Spotlight. We're a whole day into the Chinese New Year. It's the closing of the year of the Tiger into the year of the Rabbit, or as I like to call it. The Year of the Bunny Girl!!
 
News was slow again this week. Though James Cameron is still teasing the idea of making a live-action movie of Battle Angel Alita........in five or so years. Yeah, thanks a lot for the heads up, Cameron. You can read Tom Pinchuk's full article for more details HERE. I was able to get to the Anime Vice Japanese Lesson this week. The lesson I taught readers was on understanding how Japanese names are translated into English, and gave tips on how you can translate your name into Japanese. Ethan has a lot of wiki tasks all set up for Anime Vice users to earn some major wiki points. The theme of this new Task Initiative is centered around character profiles. Be sure to see his blog post on the Wiki Style Guide below. We also got some data on the kind of traffic Anime Vice had for the month of January in the monthly Data Porn Blog. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Panty & Stocking had the most edits of all the series last month.
 Happy Year of the Bunny Girl......I mean Rabbit!

@Morita_Shunsuke: 
I've have to double check, but I believe that's Cantonese for "Happy New Year".

" @Newten: 
You didn't have shots of Eneus like these

I haven't spotlight any wiki pages, because no one was ever submitting anything. I actually plan to spotlight some character pages next week that follow the new style guide to give people examples. "

@casadeking09: Top row 2 and 3 are K-On! 5 is Strike Witches (not 100% on that) and 6 Is Sora no Otoshimono (Forte to be exact). Thats all I know of the non Dragon Ball and Haruhi ones.

@damswedon:  Sorry about the late reply, but thanks for answering. I was starting to think that I would never find out.
