Off-Topic » Merry Christmas Anime Vice! ~2011 edition!~

Panty & Stocking wish you all a Merry Christmas
Panty & Stocking wish you all a Merry Christmas

Hey guys, Merry Christmas! Well, technically it isn't Christmas until tomorrow, but I'm sure you guys don't mind, right?

Got anything Christmassy to share, anime or otherwise? Spread some cheer and post here!

For Christmas images check out the Fan Art, Cosplay and Official Art image threads. If you have any of your own to share, post them there. Have any random Christmas images that don't fit into those categories? Feel free to share those here!

Merry Christmas everyone.

Off-Topic » Share your Official Art uploads! (Image thread)

Welcome to the "Official Art" thread!

What is this I don't even

Allow me to explain. Anime Vice catalogues a lot of images with users adding more every day. These images are useful for wiki articles and filling in the galleries, as well as bringing in new visitors from places like Google image search. However, these images aren't really showcased in any way, so this is a place to share cool new official artwork you've added to the site.

"Official Art"?

What qualifies as "Official Art" you ask? A bunch of things: Artwork from magazines, posters, CD covers, BR/DVD covers, Visual Novel covers, Manga covers, etc. As long as it's officially affiliated with a franchise, it counts. Just make sure you know it's official and not just really good fan art or a vector trace (a digital trace of official art), sometimes it can be hard to tell.

What ISN'T Official Art?

I pretty much covered the major types of Official Art, so basically anything outside of what I listed above. But if you still need it spelling out; figures, cosplay, anime screen cap/shots, and fan art don't count, so don't post them in this thread.

Where should I add these in the wiki?

Personally I find the default galleries too broad, making it easy to lose images in the depth of the ever-growing galleries on this site. I recommend adding these galleries to pages:

  • Franchise page: Anime Art, Manga Art, Visual Novel Art, CD Covers, BR/DVD Covers, Other Merch
  • Character page: Anime Art, Mange Art, Visual Novel Art

Where do manga/novel covers go? Upload those to the book/volume page they belong to. Why shouldn't you add merchandise to the character pages? I think that's better on the franchise page, same reason why I don't advise adding fan art to the franchise or series pages, that belongs on character pages. After all, if we added everything everywhere the galleries would be ridiculous wouldn't they? These aren't official rules or anything, but I highly recommend the galleries I've suggested.

LAST THING! (important please read)

Please post images using the small (single) or side-by-side (multiple) settings.

This is partly to keep the thread tidy, but also because most official artwork comes from anime magazines aimed at guys. So don't be surprised to see anime girls wearing little to no clothing in some images. If you don't want to see such images, either scroll past them or leave the thread. Of course, full nudity (completely bare breasts or visible genitals) is not allowed.

Now share those images!

Thinking about how much better the forums would be if people left comments in threads half as often as just viewing them.

Just thought I'd share this recent YouTube gem with you all in case you hadn't seen it yet. Strong language.

Gold I tell you.

Anyone who has never seen any of the "Awesome Series" before should check out their other videos, quality stuff.

@finaldasa: The anime or the cosplay? Assuming you meant the anime... yeah, that sounds accurate. It's kind of great when you just take it for what it is.

Also poop monsters.

Off-Topic » Share your Cosplay uploads! (Image thread)

@ReplicaRex: As far as I know the best way to search for cosplay is by going to a character page and checking the cosplay gallery. Cosplay images used to appear on the main page, but that was years ago, the Whiskey Media sites have changed a lot since then.

By the way guys, don't be afraid to just chat about cosplay in this thread in general. If there's a specific character you'd like to see, let me know and I'll see if I can come up with anything.

I've rounded up a ton of Christmas cosplay, Merry nearly-Christmas:
