Off-Topic » The "Official Art" thread ~ share your images!

@Bigheart711: Not bad, try to hunt down the highest resolution images you can, those look a little small. Might be because they're old though.

For some reason we didn't have any Squid Girl artwork, fixed that problem.

@Newten: It's just your account that is broken. Weird I know.

Also I added sexual partial nudity to the no porn images rule on Giant Bomb.

Yeah, my image page seems to be the only page that won't load for me on Giant Bomb. I can upload images and everything just fine though so it's not a massive deal. I mention it to staff every now and then.

Eh. Anime images (official or otherwise) are generally more provocative then game images. A game is promoted with a trailer and a few screen shots, Zero season 4 is promoted with a static image trailer and posters of Louise molesting a strawberry. It's kind of just how it goes at this point. As for the image rules as long as nipples and genitals aren't visible and there's no actual sex act of any kind going on in the image, then it's fine.

@ZombiePie: By the way, in an attempt to keep this thread kind-sorta on-topic, I think I remember you saying you watched Zero no Tsukaima. Interested in season 4 at all?

The season 2 closer was one of the worst things I ever have watched and the series really went down hill halfway into season 2, and that third season...man fuck that shit. The way they convey heart-warming or touching moments and immediately whiplash it with a fan service gag just got old and often ruined genuinely good scenes. In the end I think they wasted a perfectly good plot to make something that played to the cheap crowd.

That said I'm going to watch it. I've already invested this much of my time into the series. Why not see how things finally come together at the end?

I definitely remember enjoying the first season more than the second and third, but I don't remember it getting that bad. Maybe I'm just so used to fan service and gags at this point that I barely notice it any more, I dunno, maybe I'll rewatch some of it before season 4 starts.

I think I read something about the directors for the seasons being different, one guy directed season 1 and another directed 2 and 3, and the guy who directed 1 is coming back for 4. May have to look it up to make sure.

@ZombiePie: Ha, you can try. Pretty sure my image page is busted on Giant Bomb. Seriously. Doesn't load.

Also, I'll go out on a limb here and assume you've never seen this thread before?

Right I'll start the thread off then, here's the official art I've uploaded today.

New Louise artwork for the upcoming fourth season of Zero no Tsukaima. Judging by the way she looks I'm half-convinced there's some sort of time skip between season 3 and 4. Guess I won't know until it starts.

Here's some Mayo Chiki! art.

Off-Topic » The "Official Art" thread ~ share your images!

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, DVD/BR 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 captures, 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, DVD/BR 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!

Off-Topic » What are the differences between WW2 Hulk, and normal hulk?

@Levance: This isn't related to anime or manga so I'm moving it to off-topic, but I'd strongly recommend posting threads like this on Comic Vine instead of here. I'm sure you'd get a fast answer over there.

Here's a pretty cool crossover image.

@finaldasa: Yeah, look at Azusa, trying to be scary, but failing that and being totally adorable instead. The guy who drew those always does great K-ON! fan art.

@ChristinaAV: That's fine Christina, that pumpkin is awesome! Especially since I just finished the Justice League cartoon last night.

Hey Anime Vice, Happy Halloween! Hope you're all having a good time, I thought I'd make a thread to share some Halloween images, be they fan art, official art, cosplay or really whatever you like (provided you don't break any rules of course) so to start things off here's a set of cute K-ON! images I found.

Pok√©mon » New at hack roms

@kuronekomi: This site isn't really the place to talk about hacking roms, I have some experience with this stuff though, a long while back. I recommend checking out the emulation forums at PokéCommunity. I haven't been active there in years but they should have all the information you need.

General Discussion » Do you want brand-new episode reviews on the front page? [READ BEFORE VOTING]

@ZombiePie: I'm thinking more about whether or not you're actually interested in anime enough to take it seriously or just want to do it for the hell of it. You have to be dedicated son.

@ZombiePie: That's the idea. I dunno, wouldn't you be better off doing a guest watch and learn? Can you even watch anime without being drunk?

General Discussion » Do you want brand-new episode reviews on the front page? [READ BEFORE VOTING]

@Sparklykiss: I know what you mean, but hey, it would only be right to review things fairly. You don't see Comic Vine ignoring second issues just in case the story takes a while to pick up. Maybe it will take a while to get really good, the reviews will reflect that. Besides, a terrible review after a good first episode would be great! Imagine the drama! "OH MY GOD WHAT HAPPENED THIS ANIME WAS SO GOOD LAST WEEK NOOOOO!"

And even if we cover lots, CV covers plenty of comics each week, and they seem to do just fine. We should have it even better over here since anime episodes come out on different days. We won't have like 15 reviews up in one go.

Crunchyroll is great! Look it up and check it out. There are free and subscriber memberships. Most of the content is free but members gets a few series exclusively like Fairy Tail, and can watch in HD and stuff. The subscription fee is reasonable and it's neveer a bad thing to support the industry.

@ZombiePie: Thanks for fucking up my poll Zombie! It was going so well, too! ...ass.
