Community Spotlight Persona 4 Edition

Think you're a master on all things anime? Prove it by checking out this week's community spotlight!

I hope everyone in the Anime Vice Community is having a stellar week. We certainly have enough to be excited about, and it shouldn't take an Investigation Team to figure out what I speak of. Not only did One Piece have it's big time skip episode, but Persona 4 The Animation also began this week. The hits just keep on coming. Later this month, BLEACH will be having it's big time skip. To top all this off. Tom Pinchuk has started a fan art contest to win a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack of ONIGAMIDEN. I'm really wondering what more great surprises are in store for us this October.

Good job, team!

I noticed a lot of people are doing weekly reviews for anime shows. I don't know if Tom, Godlen, or Newten inspired them. Hell, I'm going to keep writing weekly reports for Sket Dance and Beelzebub.

Didn't get this stuff in on time but I wrote a review for the first episode of MajiKoi, and I published the official 20th episode of AlphaVictor. Apparently this podcast has been going on and off for over a year now, as our first published podcast went up near the end of Sept. 2010. That just blows my mind.

So Awesome and Organized!

Oh FoxxFireArt. I decided to do something different after a talk with a businessman. I have to report here since I did not realize that you get like 15 PMs a day and the reports I send you get lost. It's my fault.

Last Week's PMs

  • Treasure Tool = Overview and a massive list of tools by Konantenshi
  • Flame Haze = Overview and Contracts by Konantenshi
  • Mushi-Shi episode 1 - Wales did the plot summary. The images were by Soupydrek.
  • Tiger and Bunny - Bussuht did the overview and the characters for the franchise page.
  • Fairy Tail Episode 99 - I did the plot summary with Points of Interests and Anime and Manga differences. Anna is going to do the images.
  • Wales did a lot of plot summaries for Golden Boy's episode 1 and 2.
  • I found a new person, PetieW, who's almost done on a volume 1 of 20th Century Boys.
  • Squid Girl 2 episode 1 - Auron570 did the plot summary and characters with images
  • My Ordinary Life ep. 26 by Auron570
  • Hanasaku Iroha ep. 26 by Auron570

I'm glad you got most of them. It's my fault for sending separate PMs.

This Week's Submissions for this Community Spotlight Oct. 10

  • Power of Existence (Character) - Konantenshi did a beautiful job on this. She added a detailed section on concept and usage.
  • Sophie Sawalisch (Character)- Konantenshi did a good job on formatting it. Though I have to help her a little more with the creation. Plot should be story arcs.
  • Kazuya Yamamura - ShadowKnight508 did a brilliant job on the story arcs.
  • Shadow Group (Concept) - ShadowKnight508 did the overview, members, allies, primary duties, and more.
  • Sket Dance 27 and Beelzebub 36 - My team and I did these after the spotlight due to school. It's will be the pattern, so my team is a bit busy.

I'll be sending two responses. A comment here and a PM.
