General Discussion » Hi I am new here...

@Dragoness1993: Welcome to Anime Vice, if you need any help let me know.

If you like Bleach, then I would suggest similar shows like Fairy Tail and Naruto. You can find links to watch anime like that here.

Off-Topic » Do you have forum dyslexia too?

That sort of thing happens to me when I quickly scroll past stuff, but I'll usually scroll back up and realise it wasn't what I thought I saw.

I think I've seen other people think FoxxFireArt is FireFoxArt, so that's not unheard of.

Off-Topic » active mods

I'd say we're all pretty active, it's rare that I'm online and another mod isn't, which means there's usually at least two mods on.

General Discussion » In truth, I shall be checking out One Piece.... but....

@sickVisionz: I did a little googling and the closest thing I can see is Gildarts looking like this Shanks guy, and I admit there's a strong resemblance there, but apparently their personalities are pretty different. Judging by what I've read about this stuff it mostly boils down to some character design/general style similarities and the rest of it you could argue is shared by lots of shounen manga series in general.

Unless there's someone is Fairy Tail running around with a straw hat, stretchy arms and a massive grin on his face I really don't see much a problem.

That's the same as saying Bleach is a copy of Dragon Ball Z, same basic concepts, different characters and settings.

Except Bleach doesn't copy character design, world design, team setup, character plots, and even costumes from DBZ. Fairy Tail is a straight up rip of One Piece. Have you actually seen both shows?

I've seen bits of it of One Piece here and there. I find it hard to believe they're that similar.

General Discussion » In truth, I shall be checking out One Piece.... but....

@justanormalguy: Honestly I'd recommend reading the first five or so chapters of both Fairy Tail and One Piece and then sticking with whichever one grabs you the most, or both. It's the only way to find out for sure.

I'm not really keen on any of the main characters in One Piece and get put off by lots of the character designs in general, it feels way more goofy to me. Fairy Tail has characters I like, and the setting is like a massive RPG game in anime form, which is pretty cool. They even pick up quests and go on them with a party of fighters.

Anyway, my point is it's really silly to say one anime/manga is "copying" another. Don't hate on it for being similar to something else. Just pick the one that appeals to you.

Editing & Tools » Wrong default image for an One Piece episode.

@Dekken: Fixed it. That Izuna screen cap wasn't even in the episode gallery so I don't know how it ended up as the image for the episode, probably just a weird glitch.

Off-Topic » Do you believe in GOD

@ReplicaRex: I won't consider locking this thread necessary unless users start being nasty directly to each other. If you simply don't like what's being said in here then I'd advise ignoring the thread.

EVERYONE: keep it friendly in here. No God-bashing or rudeness, okay? Good.

Off-Topic » if you could be eney anime character who would you turn into!?

I'd probably be Goku. Strongest dude in the universe, carefree, hot wife, lives in the countryside... can justifiably beat up his kids from time to time... he's got it pretty good.

Although Master Roshi is immortal and owns his own little island. But I imagine his life must be pretty boring most of the time.

General Discussion » Which should I give a chance and sit through?(and why)

I gave my vote to Bleach. Of the three, it's the one that's held my attention the most. It has great characters, fantastic production values and the characters have cool, unique abilities. Unfortunately it falls into lots of the same traps that Dragon Ball Z does, with the main problem being that the characters (ESPECIALLY Ichigo) are constantly "levelling up" and at times it seems a little ridiculous. My only other major problem with it is that it has a bad tendency to introduce large groups of characters, have them involved for a season and then forget they ever existed and move on to the next lot. It would do better to go back to older characters and focus on them more. It gets surprisingly interesting when it dives into the past too. We're all still waiting to learn more about Ichigo's dad, he has a very mysterious past.

Oh, and completely avoid the Bount arc (first filler arc). Bleach actually has some great filler material, but also in this case some of the worst. Avoid the Bount arc like the damn plague. It's thankfully completely skipable as you won't miss anything important.

Naruto is great, but I haven't been drawn to it like I have to Bleach. I read the manga for a while but haven't gone back to it, I'm actually planning on starting the anime from the beginning soon instead of resuming the manga.

It's a shame Fairy Tail isn't on this list, I'd probably pick that. I think it avoids the problems Bleach has and is also more light-hearted and funny. Unfortunately though it isn't as strong visually, though it's much better now than it was in the beginning. I think Fairy Tail has a more interesting, fantastical world than Bleach or Naruto as well.

I've never been interested in One Piece.

Dragon Ball » Are the Z fighters super heroes?

They're definitely super heroes, they've saved the world multiple times. They just aren't super heroes in the traditional (western) sense; they don't often fly around putting out fired and saving kittens.
