Welcome everyone, we have a huge selection, mostly Viz Media books.

Familiar Series I Recommend

  • This week had a ton of Pokemon than usual. I haven't read the manga series for any of them yet. I'm psyched to see the differences and diversity in the characters due to being a fan of the anime that had the same character, Ash Ketchum, for a long time.
  • Nisekoi - I only recommend this for folks who are used to harem shows. What sets Nisekoi apart is the amnesia, that Romeo and Juliet gangster element, and the megane sidekicks. I don't like Nisekoi for having a convoluted plot/amnesia because the guy remembers there was a girl and now there was 2 girls he coincidentally remember. He wants to meet that girl from ten years ago, the girl he liked.

Series I would try

  • Claymore - After hearing Katmic's take on Claymore manga series (since it ended), Taichokage's review, and Sotyfan16's Beginner's Guide to Claymore, I wanted to try the series. It's a nice change of pace to read dark manga series with a strong female protagonist since I read mostly Shonen series.

I would love to hear your recommendations on the rest of the manga series featured this week. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release. All summaries are from ANN.

Welcome to the first week of March! We have a lot of limited/special editions for this week.

Familiar Series I Recommend

  • Gurren Lagann - Fans of mech and Gainax would love this show. It's over the top fan service and action with some heavy drama on the side. My friend from the UK, Yusuke52, suggest folks would be better off getting the complete edition since you save more.
  • Unbreakable Machine Doll - If you don't like generic harem shows, don't try this one. This is for folks who are used to the overused tropes and cliches. What I like about Unbreakable Machine Doll is the characters that are entertaining and distinguished from the tons of characters I seen from harem shows. Harem lead isn't too perverted or too much of a kind, herbivore. He's not interested in the gals and avoids his overzealous, prone to jealously partner, Yaya who is an automaton. There is love between humans and robots or puppets. Too bad, it's a short anime series. I believe the BD version has uncut nude scenes since the OVA had a lot of nudity.
  • Ranma - After doing the Ranma Character Spotlight with Hal and SamJaz, I was exposed to an old series for the first time. I love the show, and I haven't finished yet. If you like romantic comedies, try this one out.

Series I would try

  • Yakitate - From the cover and synopsis, it looks like a fun, comedic show to try. I haven't seen a lot of cooking based shows lately.

I would love to hear your recommendations on the rest of the manga series featured this week. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Since I have no room in the table, I post the images of the limited/special editions here:

Outbreak Company
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • Suggested retail price: $69.98 (Blu-Ray), $59.98 (DVD)

Shinichi Kanou's father writes novels and his mother illustrates erotic video games, so it's not unsurprising that he'd turn out a fan of comics and science fiction. However, rather than channeling his efforts into creating like his parents, he has instead become one of the world's foremost experts on "moe," with an encyclopedic knowledge of all things cute and adorable in every conceivable form of animation and media. This sort of explains Shinichi's recruitment as an ambassador for moe to the Holy Erudanto Kingdom, a parallel world where things that previously only existed in anime actually exist!

How will a hot blooded young otaku react when dropped into a world with actual cute and adorable elf maids and dragons? More importantly, how will they react to this drooling devotee with diplomatic credentials? And even more to the point, exactly why does the Japanese government feel that sending someone to represent Japan's moe interests is a good idea in the first place?

Here are our wiki teammates for a very popular franchise with a growing fandom in our community! Please support our wiki pages and the folks who contributed to the wiki, making this the number one source of wiki.

Background

Our team formed near the end of 2013 around the same time as Toriko's wiki project began. As a new wiki mod in Fall of 2013, I started putting out wiki tasks on both Toriko and Seven Deadly Sins. I asked if any wiki editor want to join a team. We all work at our own pacing and on things we are good at as well as helping each other out.

When the anime aired in October 2014, the franchise's popularity boom. We got more wiki editors helping out whether they are solo or joining our team.

In a future recognition blog, we go over the accomplishments of our teammates.

Welcome to this month's report where I spotlight our community achievements and their work as well as going through historic events of our site. In this community, we want folks to know we are proud of their works.

Please let me know if I made a mistake or miss something. I try my best to highlight everything from every sub community and forums of Anime Vice. I love this community a lot. Thank you for reading.

Battle

Best Battle Users

  • Anime Vice Battle User of February 2015: Falbium_Asmodeus - Congrats to Falbium for being awesome. Check out the link to learn more about him. He announced last month's battle theme, ecchi (at first, it was perverted men/or women and sexy, endowed women.) It was thanks to HungryWorld and Falbium for promoting the theme and introducing something new we haven't done. Of course, there were some users didn't like seeing a ton of ecchi battle themes. We do encourage folks if they like a theme to help out.

Note: I don't remember what was our actual, prominent theme for this month.

Policies

  • We had some debating issues last month, so mods work on making threads to help new and old users debate without getting into trouble: How to Debate Politely.
  • Feb 10: We temporarily banned Bambina until Pair Arc is done because a lot of threads created by folks who were unfamiliar with Bambina.
  • On Feb. 21, Dream added another revision to the main battle rules for the Who Can Beat XXX matches. He added a power cap since some threads didn't have one often get derailed.
  • With the increased traffic in the battle forums with returning users and new users (Feb. 26), Yusuke52 contacted Dream and Taka about the increased violations in uploading watermarked images. Taka proposed a help desk thread to alleviate the issue and updated How To Show Scans or Any Images's solutions such as using Respect/Feat threads and wiki galleries. Thanks to Yusuke52 for helping clean the scans/point out to watermarked ones.

Welcome everyone to this week's manga releases! This is the last week, and we are ending with a lot of great manga series.

Series I Would Recommend

  • Btooom - If you love survival series, Btoooim is for you. Btooom is about Ryota who finds out he was abducted and forced to play his favorite game in real life. He has to collect BIMs in order to escape the island.

I didn't know a lot of manga series this week. That's pretty much the only familiar one for me.

Series I would try

  • Maria the Virgin Witch - I only seen the anime. Seeing the manga cover shows me how old it is from the art style. I'm curious about the potential differences.

I would love to hear your recommendations on the rest of the manga series featured this week. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release. All summaries are from ANN.

Maria the Virgin Witch Volume 1
  • Distributor: Kodansha Comics
  • Suggested retail price: $10.99

PURITY AND POWER

As a war to determine the rightful ruler of medieval France ravages the land, it seems that the only hope for most is protection from the heavens above through prayer. But deep in the forest outside of a small, bucolic village, the witch Maria will not stand idly by as men kill each other and commit horrendous acts in the name of God and glory. Using her powerful magic, she'll summon various beasts and demons - even going as far as using a succubus to seduce soldiers into submission under the veil of night - all to stop the needless slaughter.

However, Maria's display of her magical might has drawn the ire of the Kingdom of Heaven and after the Archangel Michael puts an end to her meddling, he curses her to lose her powers if she ever gives up her virginity. Will she forgo the forbidden fruit of adulthood in order to bring an end to the merciless machine of war?

And while strangers to Asaemon, their final moments and the stories behind their appeals can sometimes reveal more of a person's character than a lifetime of association.
