General Discussion » Borders closing sale purchases

Not yet. I will get a couple once they go past 20% off. The one closest to me doesn't have much left that I would want but it still has quite a bit of manga on the shelf. Nice pick ups for yourself but I feel what you mean. What you should do now is shop on RightStuf. The manga is a couple dollars cheaper than the store and there's no sales tax. Plus, shipping is free on orders over $50 and there are weekly deals for various publishers.

General Discussion » Watching Anime Online?

YouTube, Hulu, and The Anime Network are your best bet except for going to the licensee's site (such as FUNimation.com). The reason you find anime limited on Netflix is because all the series on there have been dubbed and released on DVD/BD; making them at least a year or so old. Also, the anime that's available for streaming is about 95% FUNimation because they struck a deal last year.

General Discussion » What anime should I watch now?

Check out Basilisk, Gurren Lagann, Speed Grapher, Claymore, Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040. The first 4 I listed can be view on Netflix Instant Watch. Do you like series that aren't solely based on action? Like romantic-comedy/action series?

General Discussion » Vicer Of The Month: July Nominations

Well I was going to wait until the end of the month to vote but I'm really tired of all this stuff going on here. I don't pay attention to Wiki work much unless I'm doing something with it so my votes go on my feelings of blogs, reviews, and articles. So for the month of July I vote for Newten because he has become more active with articles and works well with the community in creating duscussion.

General Discussion » Any Anime Vice Youtube users?

I subscribe to this user. She was doing a lot of work making videos about her purchases during the "Support the Industry" time. The link to her YouTube profile is here. I post my Dunce Cap videos on YouTube as well and the link to my channel is here.

General Discussion » N.G. Evangelion: Should I watch TV Series or Movies?

@Black_Rose:
I was actually never going to watch the series but for the sake of getting it out of way and having a greater knowledge of anime references I watched it along with Tom's Watch & Learn.

General Discussion » N.G. Evangelion: Should I watch TV Series or Movies?

@forte:
I personally hate the series. However, I really like the rebuilds and have bought both that are out so far. The updated animation looks great, the score is wonderful, and voice acting is improved, and the characters themselves just seem better developed.I'll provide you with a couple links of my thoughts on the series and the rebuilds. The first is my Dunce Cap review of the series and 1.11, here. And the second is my Dunce Cap review of 2.22, here.

General Discussion » Blogs and podcasts?

@atejas:
Take a look at the seasonal articles that users have done. Some users take a look at the current or upcoming season and give their thoughts on what is and isn't worth watching. Another thing on the site is just keeping up with the News page articles, the Community Spotlight, the Round Table Discussions, and the Watch & Learns. Outside of Anime Vice I just look into ANN's news feed and podcast. But I'm like a year behind on all my podcasts so I've kinda given up on them. lol

General Discussion » Pass The Whiskey Episode 3: Don’t Like ZombiePie? Don’t Eat!

I need to start giving this a listen. I think it's great how you guys are doing something that includes all the Whiskey sites. Especially since the Happy Hour pretty much just talks about everything but AV (as far as I know but I don't watch/listen (to) it. Oh, and if you guys ever would like another contributor from the site I'd be happy to (yeah that's a personal plug but I think it's cool what you guys are doing and I'm jealous of Newten lol).
 
AND I love whiskey. Currently have a bottle of Jameson.

This. I'm on ep 211 and it's pretty good right now. Gonna wait a while and let the eps pile up again though.

But... you have one hundred and nineteen episodes to catch up on! That's crazy talk! Stop living in the past and get up to date!

My others friends tell me the same because they want to talk about it with me but I refuse because I enjoy the dub. Also, I'm living in the past with all my anime because I'm still on shows from last Fall. It's situation that I need to fix but I haven't been in the mood to marathon anime like I used to. But fear not, I will get caught up at some point.
 

@sickVisionz: As gloriously sarcastic as that post was, I think you replied to the wrong guy...

Me thinks this too. I can just hear him saying it while laughing the whole time.

Well, since there is no option for "Watching a older arc", I can not vote on this. I am still mired back in the messy Bount Arc at Episode 105 at the moment.

The sad thing is that I have never given the BLEACH manga a try...perhaps I should look into it soon.

This. I'm on ep 211 and it's pretty good right now. Gonna wait a while and let the eps pile up again though.

General Discussion » Why dont american tv stations care about anime anymore?

@sickVisionz:
Funny you mention that. I just refuse to watch the sub because I like the dub. So I'm only on ep 210 because that is where it is so far on CN.

General Discussion » June Vicer Of The Month: FoxxFireArt

@FoxxFireArt said:

Expect more articles from me in the future.

Ah yes. From me as well. Once I get HOTD in the mail I will get it watched and make a Dunce Cap for it. Hopefully it will get featured considering the detail you have put into the Wiki and other articles and such about the series. Oh, and congrats sir! I voted for you. lol

General Discussion » The (Un)Official Anime Vice Reviewer's Guild

This is good. I was going to start doing written reviews a while back but decided to do them as video blogs. So my manga and anime reviews are on my blog page under the title "Dunce Cap". FoxxFireArt has some good reviews, too.

General Discussion » Vicer Of The Month: June Nominations

I'm going to vote for FoxxFireArt. A number of people have already stated his work in the Wiki and as a Mod but I never see his work unless I come across a page I like or he points it out in a blog. I am voting him June's Vicer of the Month because of his work with the Community Spotlight, other community interaction, and his Strongest Women in Anime article.
 
@Black_Rose
That reminds me, I want some May Data Porn!! And June is almost over, too..

General Discussion » Vicer Of The Month: June Nominations

Hmm There is still 2 weeks to vote so I'll withhold my decision until then. A lot can happen from now til then...Such as come awesome and interesting Dunce Cap episodes! lol Just kidding, I won't vote for myself. Users should vote for others and if users have done good work then they will get recognized without self-promotion.
 
I like this idea though so I tip my hat to you fire_star.
