#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #2: Swimsuit Contest #2!

I ended up voting for Tomo... Not sure why I haven't even watched the series, but here was sort of my thought process of why I like certain female characters over others.

It was between Tomo and Nami. My first thought was that Nami would be more able to beat me up, but then I was like... Saeko and Nico could probably beat me up if they wanted to... I guess it comes down to being more mature? Nami, although pretty level-headed and rational, can sometimes get swept up in emotions. But then I was like... is Tomo more mature than Nami?... ehhhh.

So I figure my decision ended up being about who would be less violent. Saeko and Nico probably wouldn't resort to violence if they didn't need to. Whereas Nami has shown to be violent to keep other people in line, like punching Luffy/Sanji/Zoro/Ussop in the head for acting silly.

And I guess that says something about why I either prefer more innocent characters or more mature characters, because there is more predictability about how they will act. Here I'm assuming that Tomo is an innocent character, but I could be wrong, since I haven't seen the anime. xD

P.S. Keep up the polls, this is turning out to be more interesting than I thought it would be (for me at least). =D

LOL Sorry Newton, I have to give Saeko my support. I love strong female characters. (e.g. Nico Robin *cough cough* hint hint *wink*)

Anyways this is a great idea! Good work so far! xD

@takashichea: Lol thanks for spoiling it, xD lol j/king. Sounds like a pretty typical ending. I'm probably still gonna see it through, but for the past few episodes I've been kind of like "meh, I just want to get this series over with."

General Discussion » A good post-300 starting point for One Piece

Where's when you need him ;P I'm interested to see what he suggests.

I can't really say too much about the animation and fight scenes, since I am only around episode 200. BUT, just looking at the arc breakdown on the One Piece page, it looks like ep300 is right in the middle of the Enies Lobby Arc (eps 262-325).

I have heard that both the Enies Lobby Arc and the preceding Waters 7 Arc (eps 221-261) are really amazing though.

Off-Topic » Who do you admire on AnimeVice?

For all the continued hard work on the site, especially community spotlight. Also, I'd like to think that part of the reason I got into One Piece was because I saw some of his work on the One Piece pages. :P

How he still contributes to the site with school, I have no idea. I admire his patience and optimism. The seasonal anime trailers blog is probably one of the most useful things to be added to this site in a while.

For well-informed opinions and contributions to various discussions about anime.

Natsuyuki Rendezvous » Natsuyuki Rendezvous anime discussion

I have not really enjoyed the fairy-tale parts either, but I can see that they're trying to make parallels to the relationship between Rokka and Atsushi. Like how in episode 6 they were tending to an injured bird, like how Rokka used to visit Atsushi in the hospital.

It's a lot of pushing and pulling and indecision, kind of like real life I guess, and I feel like it's trying to be really subtle and careful while building up to something big. I can feel it in the way that I watch it. Like whenever I see Hazuki in the real world, I have to keep switching in my head like "okay.. wait.. this is actually Atsushi speaking through Hazuki, so whatever Atsushi says, Rokka is going to be hearing it from Hazuki, how will this change the way Rokka takes what he says?" And then there's lots questions that keep running through my head like, 'who is doing the right thing?', who is going to 'end up' with who?, will there be a 'happy-fairy-tale' ending? None of which have 'right' answers. =\ I'm really interested to see where this series decides to go. However it turns out, it's going to be a really delicate ride until the end. (pun not intended)

They did a great job with Wakana and her mother's story in episode 6. Can't wait to see more. :)

Just watched ep3. Hah, so you can hide your player level. That would be interesting in an actual game, making it closer to REAL LIFE. o.O"

Getting wiped by a trap mob... true story. Also not sure if crunchyroll made a typo spelling "Reindeer" in the episode title. Unless it's some sort of pun on snow being like frozen rain.

It was an okay episode, but so far the only thing this series really has going for it is the whole game-real life dynamic, and related fate/free will discussions. For example, what kind of person Kirito is in real life versus who he is in the game, or how the game forces him to play in certain ways and/or interact with people differently than in "real" life. But even then, the series hasn't done too much with that yet.

Bug Reporting » screenshots added multiple times to episode page

@Daniel_Newton: Yeah that's what I've been doing to get around the second bug, but thought I'd mention it anyway so it's out there.

Okay FINALLY I figured out how to access the proper gallery for episode images. Thanks. Now time to do some repair work.

edit: alright, I'm just going to remove all images from the wiki galleries then try attaching them again.

Bug Reporting » screenshots added multiple times to episode page

Alright some pictures to clarify the second bug, this is showing recently uploaded images as I try to attach them to an episode page.

From left to right. In this case, I scroll down and the same images reappear and they are already selected, but sometimes they just reappear and they are unselected.

Bug Reporting » screenshots added multiple times to episode page

So I uploaded some screenshots, and then attached them to the episode page like I normally do, but it looks like some images were added 2 or 3 times.

I already tried fixing it by removing the copies manually from the images sections, but the episode page still shows multiples.

I'm using Chrome and Windows 7.

Edit: well since I'm here I might as well report a second bug about image uploading. Whenever I want to select images I have already uploaded to add to a page, I start selecting images, then scroll down, and the images I have already selected will reappear, sometimes they will already be selected, other times they will be unselected. If they are unselected and I reselect them, the image count does not change, but if they are selected and I click on them to unselect them the image count goes down.

Tari Tari » Tari Tari Ep. 1-5 Discussion

Well looks like my hunch was right about the guys being tied into things somehow. Makes me feel a little warm and fuzzy inside seeing the characters come together in a new choir-badminton club xD. I started feeling some similarities to Chihayafuru, as Chihaya also had trouble recruiting club members for karuta. It doesn't help that Konatsu is also voiced by the same actress that voiced Chihaya. :\

Also, Taichi has his dream about being a pro badminton player, while Konatsu wants to be a professional singer. This had me wondering whether Sawa has some sort of dream of being a professional horse rider, or horse.. something. I wouldn't be surprised, since they've been showing Sawa riding her horse pretty consistently, but whenever Sawa is with her friends, she is only interested in helping others.

My Ordinary Life » Nichijou AMV: the Safety Dance

So I stumbled upon this amazing AMV which used Nichijou, a gag/parody anime that I really enjoyed. I'm not a huge AMV fan, but this one had me bursting out laughing. It really showcases some of the awesome animation that the show has to offer. Also some AMAZING editing, serious props to the creator.

Enjoy <3

@takashichea: Thanks for the over-the-top introduction >.> I'm almost blushing.

So I guess I'll share some of my thoughts about the character development so far. :P

There are a lot of ways that the characters could develop. Since it's still early, it feels like the main characters are separated into two groups, the girls and the guys. I really wonder how Atsuhiro and Taichi are going to be integrated into the larger story, if at all. It's cute to see Atsuhiro fumble and make earnest mistakes about Japanese customs, but I'm still not sure how he fits in to things, or if this is just going to be a running gag. =\

The girls are all interesting in their own way. Sawa would probably do anything for Konatsu, her best friend. Konatsu is a dreamer who is trying her best. And for Wakana, there have been small hints here and there about her past with music and singing. I'm a little worried that the 13 episode length of this series (last I checked) won't give all the characters enough time to shine, but only time will tell. :)

Just Anime » Help with anime understanding

Well obviously if all you've been watching is comedic anime that uses the same tropes and situations over and over again you're going to think it's all crap. Try watching something good for a change.

If you're taking suggestions then I would recommend Princess Jellyfish.
