@Juuhachi: I could see why this would be a useful feature, but the engineers have bigger things to deal with, so if I were you I'd just stick to good old pen n' paper.

@Bigheart711: I'm always up for a good laugh. If an anime makes me laugh then it's doing well.

@Bigheart711: More votes for Bakuman and Sora, sounds like I'll definitely be getting into Bakuman then. 
How is Panty and Stocking? The visual style looks really weird.

@SamJaz: We have plenty of quest ideas planned out, it's just a matter of finalising them and then having coonce enter them into the system, and the artist has to make all the icons. When you consider that there are five sites this gets done for (I'm sure they're working on that stuff for Tested too) it's a lot of work, so they can't just constantly pump out new quests. They know we all enjoy the quest system so don't worry about it.

@SamJaz: Ah right, both sound very interesting. TWTGOK sounds like a lot of fun, Bakuman sounds really interesting, I had no idea that's what that series is about. I may just pick both up, thanks! 
 
I'll have to write one of these articles and post it in my blog section so you can all check it out and make sure it's what you want, I wouldn't want to start posting articles you guys don't like. 
 
I'm still waiting for Ethan to check this thread out too, I left him a wall post so he'll see it soon enough. Judging by this thread I'd definitely say I've generated some interest.

@SamJaz: Sora I'd definitely cover, I can't really do index II since I haven't seen the first series, but I have been meaning to watch that, so if enough people wanted that I'd be willing to get through the first series quickly. I haven't checked the other two out, what are they like? I get the impression Bakuman is popular, certainly sounds like you're into it.

@Bigheart711: I have a fairly good idea of how these articles would look, but I want to know what new anime you guys would want me to cover, or aren't you fussed as long as it's new?

@Bigheart711: Damn it that didn't answer my question at all! Yeah I'm sure we can post the podcast on the front page, that shouldn't be a problem. 3-minute expert is tricky though, that's definitely something for the staff, but Tom doesn't quite have all the anime knowledge to be able to do it like Gia could. And... I don't think I've ever seen GodLen on camera. I would like to see it come back too, I just don't know who could do it.

@DevilMayhem666: @Superevil225: @Bigheart711: @AURON570: @ssjsuperman:   

Which anime series specifically would you like covered? If Ethan is up for this and lets me post weekly anime to the front page, I want to know what you guys want to see. 
I'm already watching Sora no Otoshimono: Forte, Iron Man, Ore no Omouto go Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (that's a mouthful) and I'm watching the first two episodes of MM! tonight. So I'd likely cover those. 
I'd be willing to give just about anything a try (remember, currently airing anime only) so let me know. 
 
My current idea would be to post a video embed of the opening sequence (that usually gives you a good idea of what the series is like), or the full episode, if I can get it from a legal source, followed by a brief description of the episode along with my thoughts on it, and then finishing off with screencaps from the episode. 
 
How would you like me to write it? Similar to the watch and learn articles? 
The problem is some people are saying they don't want spoilers, but I was seeing these articles as a place to discuss the new episodes, like the weekly manga articles discuss the new manga chapters. Having it like that generates more comments on the articles, if people are just looking at the video and the images and then leaving, they aren't commenting, that makes the feature look unpopular. 
 
Please let me know what you guys want, thanks.

@FoxxFireArt: I'm not proposing full-on reviews though, I don't remember Vice posting about anime episodes like how they currently post about manga chapters, that's what I'm going for. Oh, plus a gallery full of images for the episode too. 
 
I would love to learn to read and write Japanese, we should pitch our ideas together, me posting weekly anime episode articles and you posting your Japanese lessons. 
Like, seriously. I'm up for it. 
 
Oh, I also had the idea of putting separate tabs just above the news article list on the front page, so people can click them to view lists of one type of news. 
Something like "All News" "Weekly Anime" "Weekly Manga" "Watch & Learn" and "Almost Otaku" 
 
I could whip up a mockup image for that pretty quick. And I'm pretty sure the Top Men already have the code they need to split stuff like that, I'm sure they could do it pretty easily. 
Just another idea.

If you want something not listed above, post it below.
If you want a bunch of the options listed, pick the one you want most and then post about the others.


This is not an official poll of any kind, it's just out of curiosity, what would you like to see on the front page here? Here's a little more description for each of the options.

More weekly manga

Bleach, Naruto and One Piece are the manga series covered on Anime Vice right now, they are the three big hitters. But would you like to see more new manga covered like this? If so, what would you like to see? New/current manga only please.

Weekly Anime

Just like the weekly manga, but anime. With some screencaps, a quick description of the new episode, the good, the bad, etc. What new anime would you like to see covered? Covering the big three would be a little silly as the manga is always ahead of the anime (unless it's a filler arc). So what would you want? Sora no Otoshimono? Iron Man? Ore no Imouto?

Adult Stuff

This isn't very specific, so if you'd like to see some of the more adult stuff covered on the site, what sort of stuff would you like to see exactly? Perhaps info/screencaps of new, uncensored releases of anime? What do you want?

Image galleries

Okay so my idea here is something similar to my recent blog posts. Posts showing off the quality image uploads on the site. Could be anything, anime screencaps, cosplay, fan art, official art. I was thinking of showing off the most impressive stuff with rows of thumbnails, like in my blogs, then a list of links to other galleries on the site, the images could be from any users on Vice.

Abridged series

I don't know how popular this idea would be but I'm throwing it out there. Would you like to know when a new abridged episode or related video hits the net? If you're into that stuff Vice could become a great place to find updates for all the major abridged series instead of having to keep track of them all seperately.

Anime merchandise

Fairly self explanitory, news posts about awesome anime figures, games and anything else cool and anime/manga related.

So fellow AVers, indulge my curiosity and let me know what you want on this website!

@Elfenlied1012: I'm glad you guys want to do some anime reviews, but you really shouldn't be sharing an account, that's kind of against the rules. Would it be so much trouble to make another account?
