#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic Discussion

@takashichea: I like all three of the main characters, I'm four episodes in and all three of them are still pretty mysterious. Aladdin genuinely appears to know nothing about himself, while Alibaba is keeping to himself, though he has already said he will tell Aladdin everything. I kind of hope he keeps some of his past to himself for now though to keep things interesting. Morgiana seems like the kind of character who bottles up her emotions and is liable to explode without warning--at least that's the impression I'm getting--she should be fun to watch regardless.

I was pretty surprised how dark Magi gets in spots, like the flashback showing that asshat lord jabbing a sword in Morgiana's face. It definitely adds a little shock value I wasn't expecting.

Oh, I added a Hulu synopsis to one of the episodes because it didn't have one, and I can't access Magi episodes on Crunchyroll, it's not available in the UK. I can get the information from Hulu though so I did. It looks like they use the same information on both sites anyway.

So I finally started watching this and checked out the first episode, what a wacky show, but definitely in a good way.

@takashichea said:

They should have made the first episode better. It was too sleepy, and it didn't have enough action.

What? Were we watching the same thing? There was a giant headless blue guy wrestling with a giant man-eating plant! What more do you want?!

I thought it was a great first episode. It set up the world pretty well, while leaving a lot of things up in the air, so I'm already pretty eager to jump into episode 2.

Her wearing his shirt.

Hmm, I remember that...

Really? She was sick and he came over to help, left his shirt there. He returns later and she's wearing his shirt when she opens the door.

Yeah, I said I remember that part :P

I enjoyed the image of Tsubaki kissing a photo of Urabe, and then her kissing the other side. That was cool.

Doooon't remember that...

Okay, yeah, I definitely need to go back and check all the chapters. Sounds like there's quite a lot I've missed.

:O A person has taken pictures of the girls during swimming class. Tsubaki is given the one of Suwano, while his friends buys the rest so he doesn't rouse suspicion. Tsubaki makes sure he gets Urabe from him while getting the others. He has to do this because Urabe found the photo and wasn't pleased. Near the end he kisses them both having different affects on the drool and then explains what happened. He then kisses the photo after Urabe asking if there was any difference. When he kisses it Urabe jumps in and kissed the other side of the photo.

Very romantic.

The first part sounds familiar, though I might be thinking about the bit in the anime where he takes photos of Urabe with her new hairdo, not sure. Either way I don't think I remember the kissing part.

That's good though! It just means there's some Mysterious Girlfriend X content I've missed somehow and need to check out, sweet.

General Discussion » Who's powers would you rather have: Goku or Ichigo?

At first I was going to say "Goku, DUUUHHHHH, no contest!" but thinking about it...

Goku is way more powerful, granted, but Ichigo is no pushover. He's more than powerful enough for you to run around doing whatever you want. The cool thing about Ichigo's powers that often gets overlooked (they should have utilised this more in the manga/anime) is that the dude can basically turn into a ghost. An invisible, super-powered, ghost.

Goku has all the other superpowers under the sun, but invisibility is one of the coolest powers out there. I'd be pretty tempted to go with Ichigo...

Plus, I don't believe the subject has ever really been touched on in the story, but isn't Ichigo kind of immortal? Not live-absolutely-forever-immortal, but, since he has Shinigami powers, shouldn't he be able to live as long as a Shinigami? Maybe his human body would grow old, but he could probably just replace it with a gigai anyway, right? Saiyans live a lot longer than humans, but that doesn't come close to Shinigami lifespans.

Just a few things to think about.

What did you think of Momoka? I think she's a fun character, quite the troublemaker too.

Mirajane Strauss » My Thoughts on Mira

I like Mirajane when her dark side comes out, I'm definitely looking forward to her fights in the Grand Magic Games.

Moving this thread to the Fairy Tail forum, it'll probably get more views there.

I'm just curious, what do you mean by stitching? What exactly are you doing with these pictures?

He's talking about "stitching" several anime screen captures together to make one larger image. You know when the screen pans across a character or something? You take screen caps of each part and merge them together in an image editor like Photoshop to create the full image.

The forum page is a little hard to find though... is there a way to mark it as a favorite?

You can't favourite specific threads, but if you like Fairy Tail, I suggest you go on this, this, this and this page and click the "Add Forum to Faves" button in the top right corner of each page.

From anywhere on the forums you can scroll to the top of the page and click the " FAVORITES" link to see all the Fairy Tail threads (or whatever else you add to your favourites). Also, when you're on the Anime Vice main page, you will see your favourites in the "Site Activity" section.

Hope that helped!

Off-Topic » ~★~ Anime Vice Christmas Thread: 2012 Edition! ~★~

Welcome to the annual Anime Vice Christmas thread! Except this time I managed to post it earlier than Christmas Eve!

So, since I managed to start this thread a little earlier, what are your plans for this year? Favourite Christmas song? Uploaded any Christmassy anime pics? Asked for anything really awesome this year? Maybe you just want to wish your fellow users a very merry Christmas? Any and all Christmas talk is welcome here!

Personally one of the first things I do to get into the Christmas spirit is listen to these classics:

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Off-Topic » Who do you admire on AnimeVice?

This is a weird thread you guys.

That said, while I admire several fine users on this site, gets a special mention. I have no idea how he finds the time to fill out so many wiki pages every week, and that's just on this site. He does wiki editing on several sites.

I love you all though, obviously. I watch you while you sleep...

Fairy Tail » Discussion of the weekly chapters of Fairy Tail (SPOILERS)

@sakurablossomyears: We have a new Fairy Tail discussion thread over here, just copy your post over and hide the manga spoilers in a spoiler block (you might need to click the "more" button in the editor to see the spoiler block option), that way you can talk about the manga without spoiling the anime folks :)

Thread closed.

@Supreme Marvel: There's plenty of manga material to use so they could, we'll just have to wait and see what happens, it'll probably be a good while before we hear anything one way or another.

@Supreme Marvel: Haha, nah sometimes an art style just develops over time like that. I'm always amazed when I see early manga artwork for Bleach, it's very different to the later stuff. The Mysterious Girlfriend X manga started back in 2006 so it's had a long time to develop.

@Supreme Marvel: The art style is different at the beginning but it changes later. Look at the manga images I posted, the art style is identical.

@Supreme Marvel: Cool, feel free to drop by here to talk about it, it's what this thread is for after all.

I actually just noticed some stuff in earlier chapters I didn't recognise, I thought I read the manga from where the anime left off, but I guess the anime skipped over some of the manga. I'll have to go through the older chapters at some point.

Huh, pretty sure this wasn't in the anime

@Supreme Marvel: I think most people were, I certainly was. Have you checked the manga out? I highly recommend you do, like I said in previous posts in this thread, things get pretty fun and interesting when Momoka (the idol Urabe looks like) is introduced as a character. I usually don't check out the original manga after an anime ends but I'm glad I did with this one.
