edit: Woops I screwed up the title, "Submit questions for interview..." should have been.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Aku no Hana Series Discussion

This is great so far! Awesome to see an anime going against the current trend of animation. The first episode worked really well with setting up the tone of the show.

For all the hubbub about how the characters look, the scenery and background art is fantastic. I mean just look at these:

I really appreciate that they went with rotoscoping. I'm really glad they DID NOT go with the typical moe character design. It made Sawa that much more creepy and scary when she went up to the teacher.

Also by having it rotoscoped, it reminds the audience that "hey this is animation, and we're tracing actual people's movements to do this. So if you think this looks bad, then just look at the way YOU move about, or watch how other people in real life move." It encourages the viewer to think twice about animation, what we think looks 'right/good/cute'.

I think that is really why some people are having such a hard time with it. They get so used to seeing a certain type of animation that they forget what animation is actually based on, real movement in real life!

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Attack on Titan Discussion

Just watched the first episode. Wow some of the art and animation is really really well done. I hope it keeps it up for the rest of the series. The sound and music direction is pretty solid too, I like what they did with the sounds of the horses when the Survey Group came back.

Damn the last scene in the first ep with the Titan eating Eren's mom reminded me of Evangelion. How the EVAs go into beast mode.

Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 2000% » Spring 2013 Trailer: Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 2000%

@takashichea: You shouldn't be too lost, the story is fairly straightforward. You will miss some of the character/relationship development and some of the character's backstories. It's nice to see that development (rather than read about it on the episode pages), but it shouldn't be a big deal. I'll leave it up to you whether to start with the first season or not.

If if helps you decide: the main reason I started watching this series was because of the colorful art and mature-looking characters. It just happened to have a decent story to go with it.

Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 2000% » Spring 2013 Trailer: Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 2000%

Anyone interesting in this series should try to start with the first season. our wiki page has a nice summary of the show's main premise.

It's a nice light anime that has some good animation and artwork, good voice actors/actresses. Story is decent and the characters develop some nuance as we learn more about them and they interact more with Nanami.

If you are interested in wiki editing you may find this FAQ helpful, it's a little out-dated but generally it all still applies.

Hmm never knew Super Saiyan 4 was non-canon, learn something new everyday. :)

Yeah I don't care either way, but I'm a little interested to see what Super Saiyan God form will look like.

General Discussion » Animevice is soo dry!!!

Yeah like Sonata said. Just start small: wiki editing, blogging, forums, whatever you want. I find it helps to do stuff with anime that you're currently watching.

So for example let's say I watch a new episode of an anime. Maybe I'll write a blog about what I found interesting, or give my impressions. Maybe if I liked a particular scene, I'll take a screenshot and share it. Or maybe I'll work on the relevant episode page on the wiki (there's always lots of small things to do on the wiki, especially for new series).

It all really depends, just don't be sad if no one replies or it feels like no one cares. Since there are A LOT of anime out there, and Animevice has a small community, chances are only a small portion of people read your post have watched the episode you have watched. BUT as long as you're having fun with the anime your watching and sharing what you want with the site, then that is what matters.

One Piece » One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 (PS3) Coming Summer 2013

So it's not a sequel but an updated and better version of the original? In that case it sounds great!
