#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Mysterious Girlfriend X Discussion

@Supreme Marvel: Thanks for the heads up. It was a nice chapter, but pretty slow-paced. The idea of Tsubaki and Urabe possibly getting a little tipsy from drinking champagne maybe had some wasted potential. I mean, Urabe could have given Tsubaki a Christmas kiss on the cheek or something, you know? Doesn't sound like much, but that would be a big deal for Tsubaki. Still, can't complain about getting to see Urabe is a santa outfit, as cliché as that may be. It was nice that it wasn't super revealing, especially since she said her dad gave if to her... which is maybe a little weird.

And yeah, that is a nice image, and by mentioning it you convinced me to start uploading manga images to the wiki:

Super handy if I ever get around to filling in the wiki pages, but still nice to have anyway.

#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #2: Which Anime/Manga Franchise has the BEST Video Games?!

PLEASE NOTE: This poll is for games based on anime, not games that anime are based on like Pokémon

@ComicMan24 said:

I have only played one DBZ game and that was ok. So I am going to go with E. And my choice for that is Pokemon.

I should have pointed out that Pokémon isn't one of the options because the Pokémon anime is based on the games. This is supposed to be a poll about games based on anime/manga. My bad on that one.

#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #2: Read the Manga Chapter or Wait for the Anime Episode?

Poll Info

There are many series, typically shōnen titles (Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, etc.) that have both the original manga version and an anime adaptation running at the same time. Because the anime events are behind the manga events, you're faced with a tough decision; do you read the manga first and optionally watch the anime as well, or do you ignore the latest manga chapters, and watch the episodes, even though it's further behind in the story? Vote and let us know why in the comments.

Note: To be clear, this isn't a simple "Manga vs. Anime" poll, it's specifically about long-running franchises with both a manga and an anime version available.

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

Sorry this went up a little later than I'd planned. It takes longer than you might think to put one of these polls together, I'll try to get things ready in advance next week.

I knew Nami would be popular, but I also know there are a bunch of Fairy Tail fans around here, so it could get interesting... I voted for Tomo though, as much as I like Lucy. Tomo's just... damn.

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

Welcome to the second bracket of the AVWP Tournament: Swimsuit Contest Extravaganza! Check out the six contestants below and choose one to send to the finals.

Entry PhotoContestant Info
Satellizer el Bridget (サテライザー=エル=ブリジット Sateraizā Eru Burijitto)
Series: Freezing
Hailing from the United Kingdom, Satellizer is a powerful Pandora; a genetically modified girl with superhuman fighting abilities. This may be a slightly different type of tournament to what she's used to, but she still has a fighting chance. Satellizer is wearing a very revealing and unusual ensemble; consisting of a white sling bikini complete with a royal cape, scepter and crown! Her entry photo also features her friends Rana and Attia.
Nami (ナミ Nami)
Series: One Piece
Nami is the navigator of the Straw Hat Pirates, and she's probably one of the prettiest pirates on the seven seas (or however many seas there are where she comes from, anyway). Nami picked out a blue string bikini decorated with white beads, which contrasts nicely with her vibrant orange hair. We're not entirely sure what's going on in the background...
Tomo Yamanobe (山辺 燈 Yamanobe Tomo)
Series: Seikon no Qwaser
Tomo is a kind hearted, sweet natured girl, and while obviously physically very mature, she is actually quite fragile. Thankfully she was up for a trip to the beach for our swimsuit contest. Tomo decided to wrap herself up like a present in her pink bikini and white sandals decorated with little ribbons, there's even a ribbon in her hair to complete the outfit.
Kuroyukihime (黒雪姫 Kuroyukihime)
Series: Accel World
Kuroyukihime (meaning Black Snow Princess, she won't actually reveal her real name) is the beautiful and popular Student Council Vice-President at Umesato Junior High School. Her swimsuit of choice is a dark purple string bikini that accentuates her very slender form, just how much midriff can one person have, anyway?
Lucy Heartfilia (ルーシィ・ハートフィリア Rūshii Hātofiria)
Series: Fairy Tail
Lucy is a talented celestial spirit mage and member of the rambunctious Fairy Tail Guild. She's quite confident in her looks, and after seeing Erza enter this competition signing up herself sounded like fun. Lucy's outfit includes a red string bikini with matching red sunglasses, a cute star earring, and a pink wrist band that matches her Fairy Tail Guild Insignia. Fellow guild member Wendy also makes a guest appearance!
Kirino Kousaka (高坂 桐乃 Kōsaka Kirino)
Series: Oreimo
Kirino gets top grades at school, is a budding track-and-field competitor, a published novelist, and a fashion model. While that's all very impressive, the last point may just give her an edge in this competition. Kirino has chosen a green string bikini paired with some bright pink shades. She doesn't mind letting the Anime Vice audience know that she also happens to be a closet otaku! That's pretty hard to believe, though!

#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #1: Swimsuit Contest!

Last chance to vote! Looks like Saeko will win this bracket, but it will only take one more vote to push either Misty, Urabe or Erza into the bonus bracket.

The poll for the second bracket will be posted some time tonight/tomorrow.

#Anime Vice Polls & Contests » AVWP Week #1: Sub vs. Dub!

@Sonata: @DBZ_universe: That Bible Black dub is pretty terrible, but I still think the "Big Green" dub of Dragon Ball Z just beats it. Tien's voice gets me every time.

They're both pretty fun to listen to though.

@Supreme Marvel: Nah, I've already tried to coax some MGX fans out to vote, doing any more would be unfair. This is only the first part of the tournament anyway, and I have a feeling it will only get harder to choose a winner from here.

I'm glad there are plenty of users on-board with this silly idea, it's making it a ton of fun.
