I can understand the viewpoints of some people in the thread. But that said, High-school of the dead is pretty good. if not ludicrously full of fan service :D (I refer in part to matrix gun bullet time bewbs)

No, it just that the image choice for this article perpetuates one of the negative stereotypes that people have of anime fans; especially over on Giant Bomb where the once joking phrase "anime is for jerks" has become gospel. Look, I like anime boobs as much as the next guy, but when you're advertising an article on your site (especially one about the community) to the rest of Whiskey Media, it would be best to avoid images of a perverse nature if possible.

I don't think you can win when it comes to anime over at GB. Doesn't really matter what the article pictures are. People have entrenched themselves in the anime is for jerks crap and there is no going back. "
It's not about anime "winning" over on GB.  There's always going to be someone throwing the tired "jerk" meme out when anime is mentioned over there.  The point is, the image you see on AV's home page for a particular article is also seen on the footer of every other WM site; shouldn't it, like @FLStyle said, not add fuel to the fire?

But if it is what the AV community is into why should they be thinking about what GB (or any Whiskey site) thinks of them. It just seems silly to me that they are meant to care what people who hate anime anyway are going to think of them.

It's more about improving people's attitude towards AV than anime in general.  It really doesn't matter what AV is into or what other WM sites think about it; the bottom line is a less suggestive image could have been chosen for this article, and should be for any future articles if possible.
 
 
Look, I've put in more than my two cents and far more effort into this than originally intended.  I like anime and I'd like to see AV thrive and get the same respect the other WM sites have.  That's all.

@FLStyle:  You're absolutely right. It's downright embarrassing for that to be sitting at the bottom of the page, especially when it has NOTHING to do with the article itself. And at the same time, it totally lured me here. Not sure any sane or reasonable person would call it a "success" though.

Thanks, good to see there are those who share my opinion. A community is of many viewpoints and now people know ours.

Alright it is settled then. My next article will be a Drunken Review of this High School zombie anime.

Err I do agree that the choice of the picture is wrong but NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!?!

" Greetings Anime Vice, the week was starting slowly, but the news really exploded by Thursday. The  VIZ publication of Shonen Jump celebrates it's 100th issue,  Highschool of the Dead anime is getting dub cast for a U.S. release, the  Madhouse Studio is producing a X-Men inspired anime, and  Tom Pinchuk gives us a review of the latest  FUNimation release of  FLCL. Tom's Watch & Learn articles have also started  Darker Than Blackand  Baccano animes.

Wonderful Wikis


 Its high school of the dead it is mentioned twice in this article. Which you probably didn't even read!

i didn't even notice the boobies in the footer until i saw some issue that someone had with jeffsekai, i actually passed it by as normal all day, I have no negative opinions on it and can't really seem to find out what the big deal is.

Just came here to tell you the photo for this link is downright offensive and reminds me why everyone hates this fucking site.  
 
being a tested and giant bomb regular I hear the complaints but I have watched a few anime and they were rather entertaining (serial experiments lain primarily, but I did enjoy some flcl years back.)  
 
Way to get a few clicks for shock value. 
 
It's this shit that makes anime so creepy in the first place. Way to have it be your initial introduction to other visitors to WM sites that might wander over.

I wish so much hate didn't exist. Why can't we all just get along?

@InfiniteGeass:  Some people have it so good or bad that the hate can't go to any where. So they find a scapegoat. Case and point @TheSpoonyone's live is now miserable due to reviewing horrible games, mediocre movies and declining health so now he's trying to find a scapegoat of his own. One of which is beating the wives of his Colleagues....
 
Luckily we are here to let them blow of some steam ^^ 
 
Edit: Also because I'm afraid some people are unable to figure it out... SARCASM!

Are you serious? Downright offensive? Shock Value? Jesus the way people are talking they had a picture of a Swastika down there or something.

@Kelleth:  Wrong assumption. I did read the article, but doing so would only have helped if I had already known what Highschool of the Dead was beforehand. But since porn for adolescents isn't my thing (oh sorry, I meant "fan service") I didn't. I also didn't spend time clicking all the links and going through the image galleries so I could make the connection.

@MrKlorox:  Then why make a comment like that without checking if it was actually true? It is an ecchi based show all this header really needed was some Zombies and it would have been a perfect representation of the show.

@Kelleth:  Like I already said, I'm not desperate enough to go clicking through all the image galleries just to be correct. There is some sick and disturbing stuff in the wiki that I would rather not feel contaminated by after coming across it yet again.

Oh-em-gee, I looked through the image galleries of various shows on AV and there are so many offensive pictures in them that I must complain about the site as a whole! in fact, I will sequester myself in this room with a bottle of lotion and some tissues and look at each offensive picture just so I can comment and register my disgust! Oh god do I hate this site...oh god I hate it so much...oh god oh god oh goooooood...
 
MOM! I TOLD YOU NOT TO OPEN THE DOOR WHILE I'M BEING ANGRY ON THE INTERNET!
 
On-topic though: I tried to watch HSotD, but I couldn't get past the gravity-defying boobs that were mixed in with shots of gore and zombies. It just felt a bit too much for my tastes, but if some folks are filling in the wiki then more power to them.
