It seems the Twiter link on profiles isn't working. The same Tweet I made weeks ago is still on here.

General Discussion » A good post-300 starting point for One Piece

@ShadowKnight508: Yeah, but you're going to be getting flashbacks in the mini arcs after the screw is split up in the post Sabaody Archipelago events. The crew's history is pretty much summed up in all the episodes at the end of the Dawn Island Arc before the time skip.

General Discussion » A good post-300 starting point for One Piece

It's a bit hard to say, but post 300 is just about the time of the Enies Lobby Arc. That had some awesome battles, especially Luffy vs Rob Lucci. There is the last big filler arc after that. Thriller Bark was fun and hilarious with some awesome battles. That's when Brook joins in. Sabaody Archipelago would probably be great. That has one of the biggest plot reveals and it's a relatively short arc. Most of that arc's episodes are avaliable on HULU.

If you just look on the One Piece anime page. I label the various arcs by with what episodes they start and end at. That may make it easier to know where to start.

General Discussion » Vice Pit Question Thread

  • When you consider that the line between comics and manga is extremely thin, why is it that so many comic fanatics are so dismissive if not venomous against manga in general? I read both, and I find a lot of the complaints comic readers have about comics (i.e. continuity, deaths that are reversed in months, and reboots) can be answered in various manga series. Some try to point to fan service, but how is that any different than all the impossibly busty Marvel and DC heroine and villainess characters in skintight or barely there costumes with spiked heels? Others say that the series are too large to get into. However, there are always jumping on points, and you're going to have that same problem with any long running comic series. If anything, I think it's easier to find back issues of manga volumes than it is comic trades. I often have a hard time finding trades from comics released a year ago.

General Discussion » I'm looking for an anime to introduce my friend to the culture...

If you're going with Fullmetal Alchemist. Go with Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, that's closer to the manga canon than the first anime. Soul Eater is a great series. Persona 4, which can be found on HULU for free.

Black Lagoon and Death Note are more mature, but very good series.Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo are also great action series.

Editing & Tools » Why There So Many DELETE Pages On Here?

@sickVisionz:

I've been using those DELETE pages for making new series in place of starting some pages from scratch.

Off-Topic » is it me or anime is losing popularity?

TV in general has become less popular. People prefer watching shows online where you can pause or watch on portable devices. There are a lot of popular online streaming websites that allow people to watch series fresh out of Japan.

General Discussion » Future of AnimeVice (Screened Fate is decided)

@sickVisionz: @Daniel_Newton:

We are seeing the downside of creating sites based on the personalities. When all the original personalities are gone, you lose what attached people to the site.

I think they made a big mistake over on Screened. They should of introduced the new guys while Rorie was still there. By Rorie leaving then introducing new people. They are basically playing the role of step-parents to a bunch of ticked off users. A lot of people left and don't want to give the new people a chance, because they were invested emotionally with the staff they knew. There is no attachment to these new people.

Having Rorie there while the new writers were getting known, the users would have been much more open to give the new people a chance. Then once they got to know them there would be a chance for Rorie to leave will less stress.

@takashichea said:

It's probably the same when Gia and John left Anime Vice. (I was not an Anime Vice user back then) The site personalities are like the keystones in the communities.

The thing about this is that when those two were gone, users such as myself and Sora started submitting articles of our own. I had been submitting articles even while Gia and John were still here, and Sora was the one who revived the Quick Picks segment in article form. Then other mods and a few users joined in. Tom followed soon after. Me and the mods submitting articles were know well by the user base. They didn't kick out Gia and John and get replaced by a much of people who no one knew.

I know I wouldn't be happy at all to not be able to submit anymore news or editorials. I really enjoy doing that. I'd be doing it more if I could.

Off-Topic » Who Do You Love, Right Now?!

Seeing how so many other forums and websites get filled with nothing but snark and anger. I thought February would be a good opportunity to prove that the forums in the Whiskey brands were made of better stuff and people. This is sort of inspired by the "Whats Going Through Your Mind Right Now" forum. This forum is dedicated for nothing but declaring your love for all the things you appreciate or generally care for.

RULES:

  • When ever love fills your heart for anything or anyone. Post a comment on this forum to let other users know. Even if you just had a really good ham sandwich. If it makes you happy, share it.
  • No negative comments. This is a forum about love.
  • Every post must begin with either "I love" or "I like". You're free to wax poetic from there on.
  • Post as many times as you like. We can never have enough love.

I'll start things off -- in no particular order

I love my books, I love cooking for my family on the holidays, I love the Whiskey Media sites, I love orange juice with pretzels, I love my mom, I love history, I love the Kindle Fire I got for Christmas and the digital comics I can buy, I love all the manga I recently bought, and I love all the people who post in this forum!!!

Now, it's your turn!! Who or what do you love, right now?

Are you kidding? The fact he looks so much like Tim Curry makes me love Ivan even more. Rocky Horror is awesome.

General Discussion » Rules about Images

While we prefer to have good quality images. Low quality pictures can be fine. Just try to make sure they are of descent size. Something that's 30 pixels wide doesn't really help anyone.

The only hard fast rules Anime Vice has about images is that we don't permit nudity or images of graphic sexual acts.
