General Discussion » The Deal Watch Thread

@Oneesama: I'd say more like Dollar General - discount store chain with name brands & closeout items, though it may attract a similar crowd as Wal-Mart. Some Big Lots stores have furniture sections.

General Discussion » The Deal Watch Thread

I spotted something on the CAG forums as well as on AOD/Mania about season sets of Kaze no Stigma, Sasami and a few others popping up among the $3 shelves at Big Lots.
( CAG post w/ pics - AOD thread)
 
I wasn't able to find any of those at the Big Lots closest to my house but I did see Desert Punk vol. 1, Peach Girl vol. 3?, Negima vol. 5 and IGPX vol. 1 (which I bought). I'll try to check out the other ones around me but this certainly seems YMMV, as with many Big Lots things.
 
ALSO: in that same AOD thread, someone linked to Haruhi season 2 Bamboo Rhapsody DVD being 999 yen on Amazon Japan.

Bug Reporting » Powers Link in Navigation Bar

Clicking on "Powers" in the navigation bar yields a 500 error. So does typing in www.animevice.com/powers/

Accessing a specific power's rankings through a character page works and so does navigating the sidebar of other powers on a ranking page for the most part - 500's pop up for Attractive Female, Blast Power, Divine Powers, Stamina, Super Speed, and Weapon Master.

Bug Reporting » Incorrect News Comment Count in Headline View

I don't know how many readers use the headlines view to scan the news section but I just noticed that all the story entries in that mode list "0 comments" even though most of them have 1 or more. Might only take a quick fix to make both views pull from the same most recent comment count value, I don't know how the site's code is set up to handle both views.

General Discussion » Feature Requests

Sorry to double post but a commenter on something I wrote on my proper blog about the official launch of AV has brought to my attention an issue with how characters and voice actors are presented, saying:
I checked it out when GB linked to it, but quickly got turned off by the way they present the cast list. For me, this is the most important info about a show. AV puts the episode list front and center, but the cast isn’t listed at all, only the characters at the bottom-right. But then, there is no way to find out, which seiyuu played which character.
I did a little checking around the site and found that the "Characters & Voice Actors" and "Credits" headers seem to appear on movie pages but there appears to be no way to put the same headers onto anime pages. Ex.: Cowboy Bebop The Movie has both while the television series has neither.

Being able to check what other characters a voice actor has played, or even which projects a certain producer was involved in, is a feature that some take for granted after having the same capability for many years while using other sites, myself included. So I guess I am asking you to improve how bonds between voice actors and their respective characters are handled and displayed on the site.

"Image galleries for episodes, so I can add some awesome screenshots!"

I second this.

Allowing for Japanese airdates to entered seperately from US airdates/release dates and also eliminating a requirement for a US airdate, for there are many series that have yet to (and may never) cross the Pacific.

Making the fanfiction hub section more obvious - currently you have to access it through /fanfiction/ or /guides/ (both work, although individual entries default to the /guides/ subdirectory)

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya » Who Is God?

Kyon having those powers subconsciously would explain why he is surprised by the events that he becomes involved in, some (Mikuru) which he views more favorably than others (Ryoko) in his conscious mind.

I wouldn't rule it out (and it would certainly take Haruhi down a notch, if indeed the case) but then what powers does Kyon possess that Haruhi does not in terms of altering the reality of their world?
