Welcome everyone! In the community, we have a fantastic team on a growing, popular anime series that debut in summer 2014 season, Akame ga Kill. I'm proud to be part of the team. We done a lot of great work together. Soon after 1 cour has passed (12 episodes has aired), I will post a recognition blog and highlight the achievements of this team.

For this blog, I'm proud to introduce the Akame ga Kill wiki crew. Please give them a round of applause for contributing to the site in their free time. Our wiki pages help the community and bring them together for the Akame ga Kill Discussion. Of course, you see the team along with folks who love the show or not on the front page.

For those who are new to the series, here is a summary from Anime Vice's wiki editors:

A young man named Tatsumi comes to the capital of his nation hoping to join the army, but things don't go so well. The army doesn't think he's worth recruiting, and a sexy lady steals all his money. With no other options, Tatsumi sulks until a wealthy girl comes along and offers him food and shelter.

Then one night, he discovers the shocking truth behind his new patron when the terrorist group "Night Raid" comes to kill them. Having seen the true horror of those who run the country, Tatsumi joins Night Raid and their goal of killing the country's Prime Minister in order to end the corruption at the very top, but the Prime Minister has the resources and manpower of the entire country at his disposal, and Night Raid finds themselves fighting a desperate battle where survival is not guaranteed.

The Wiki Team

Werewolverine4

My real name is Leonard Moore. I was born in December 1991. I've lived in Tuscaloosa, Al for fifteen years before finally moving to Starkville, MS late last year. I've been playing video games since I was four years old. I prefer playing science fiction or first person shooting since I was a teenager. But that doesn't mean i don't do other things, I also read books from time to time. In my other spare time, I do watch anime as well.

The reason I like Akame ga Kill were the action scenes and the diversity of the female characters. The plot is really good for this franchise that the Empire is corrupt from the inside and Night Raid has to destroy this corruption in order for the people to have meaning in life again.

Oglaphone

I joined Animevice, Comicvine & Giantbomb back around 2008/2009 so that I could work on their wikis. I'm an awful procrastinator, and I've a bit of an aversion to explaining things, so I thought I'd work at those 2 problems by writing up wiki entries for series I'm familiar with. I've wandered back and forth from those sites for years, working on them in phases.

I took an interest in Akame Ga Kill after seeing some pages of the manga posted on 4chan mid-to-late 2012. While the series took a while to grow on me, and I still consider it fairly goofy, I did come to enjoy it after it got going.

Madnessreaver

I joined some years ago in order to edit and fix the information. At first my edit were minor and my grammar was bad and I think I still have some problem with my grammar. I edit pages belong to series, manga, franchise that I take an interest in. However, this doesn't mean that I don't edit other series, manga, franchise in order to help the site. I like editing because I feel that I am helping with something.

I also want to write a novel. I currently working on a novel that I hope that will be published, be successful, adapted into anime and manga one day. I also have other ideas for novel I hope to write after I am finished with the current novel.

MrWhiteX

From Saudi Arabia, MrWhiteX is a new wiki editor who works hard in our community. Despite his struggles with English, he soon found his wiki preferences, images, with the help of Takashichea, Taichokage, and ForgottenOne who helped him out.

Well, the feature that attracted me the most when I discovered the site was that you can have your own gallery, and by adding your images to the corresponding wiki page you can contribute to the site, both sides win. Also back in the day, completing quests was a lot of fun and it encouraged me to start making my first wiki edits. In general I enjoy uploading volume covers, screenshots and profile portraits for my favorite characters. The lists that I have to collect the personal info of anime girls also encourage me to create pages for the characters that had not been added yet.

Takashichea

Hey everyone, I'm Takashichea, Taka for short (real name: Kerry). I was born and raised in Cambodia for about 10 years before immigrating to the US. Grew up in California. I started wiki editing in my sophomore year of college. I truly got into anime during college and it's thanks to Anime Vice. I edit any wiki pages. Will join any team wiki projects for shows I enjoy. For Akame ga Kill, it may be generic show, but I found it entertaining and one of the best shows for summer 2014.

Welcome everyone, it's my first year anniversary becoming a mod in this beautiful community. The title was awkward to make. I tweak it later.

Wow, time flies. It's almost 4 years being an Anime Vice user as we approach October. I make this blog sweet and fast. It was a wild roller coaster ride for me. It was out of blue when Daniel ask Tom to make me a mod after seeing the cultural interview projects and the 2nd Anime Vice reunion in an anime convention. I believe Sora_thekey was the first Anime Vice user among us to personally meet the Whiskey Media gang in person. It was cool hanging out with Tom Pinchuk and his crew at Anime Expo back in 2013 and this past summer of 2014. Daniel figured it was a crime to let a well rounded user who made so much contributions to the site not get promoted as a mod.

I rejected his offer since I had school on my plate, fall 2013 was rolling out. He didn't take no for an answer. I had no previous mod experiences in forums, but I had experiences being a Wikia Admin at Sket Dance and Btooom Wikia. To be honest, life would be easier if I never violated the laws of segregation in terms of mod roles. I couldn't help it. Being mod means folks from all niches of our site will ask you for help. Many said I was so active and they wanted resolutions quick. The only tasks I turned down were community projects I could not hold my promise to fulfill. That was the Tournament and CAV projects for the battle forums. I notice the teamwork was pretty shaky. I figured those were dead end projects that needed major overhaul by veteran battle users who had cohesive team work. I wasn't an expert in the battle forums.

Regrets or not, I did whatever was best for the community, and I kept working with users, constantly changing my approach to get things done no matter what hardships or pitfalls we fall in. I'm human and the rest of us are human. We just learned with it. I seen past teammates, old mods, and former users leave the site due to arguments or mistakes they felt regretful over. I'm here to stay until the very end.

I had ups and downs, but I won't let it bog me down because this is one of my online communities I put so much time in. I dropped my Admin roles and Giant Bomb and rest of online communities I spent time for Anime Vice.

Here are my accomplishments and failures in condense form. I hope to keep on working on making this a better site with everyone's help.

Accomplishments

Wiki

  • Help make wiki teams and work to produce great wiki pages: Toriko, Akame ga Kill, Chaika, Kill la Kill, Chaika, Hentai, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
  • Help these new wiki editors reached over 1,000 or 5,000 wiki points: BIG RULE, CWF123, Inuyasha2010, Gyn, OEST_MAG, AgentFakku, WayBig1010101, SpeedForceSpider, Low, DBZ_Universe, ForgottenOne, Demonic13
  • Increase awareness in wiki issues. I always ask questions. It does get me into trouble when I asked about our wiki scope (What Counts as Anime and Manga in the Wiki) and the image policies. We never did get through with making policies we could agree on. I'm glad to point out stuff we need to work on for the future. With Screened gone, the wiki scope for Anime Vice became lax a bit. We allowed RWBY in.
  • Make helpful wiki threads: Wiki Editing 101: Naming Image Galleries and Organizing Images and Tips On Getting Bigger, Hi Res Images.
  • Help users during the big site slowdown in spring 2014 especially wiki.

Battle

  • Not my accomplishment. I was proud to help Dream out. Dream created a new battle rules thread after Sonata and myself made comments on it.
  • Used Fire_Star's Vicer of the Month template for the Best Battle User of the Month in order to make users feel proud of themselves in Anime Vice. Since the battle forums are a mecca where users from various outside anime communities come and visit. We had some issues back in fall 2013 due to the heated arguments and tension. I figured we need role model users to help the forum.
  • Take over sickVisionz's Facts and Feats project. Following the new wiki proposals to eliminate battle feats and calcs that were fan made and not directly from the original sources, I thought we should make respect threads to help users put their creativity, an outlet to help their fellow users. I always try to find something for users to jump on, stuff from community projects or something fun.

Reviews, RPG, and everything else!

I tried to spotlight the reviews with the Anime Vice 2013's Top Reviewers which only got one vote. Taichokage voted on it. I didn't have time to promote it due to Fall 2013 seasonal project. SnowyMountain did most of the Screened 2013's Top Reviewers since he knew the reviewers and their styles personally than me. WayBig101010101 started the Anime Survey and Reviews (Summer 2014) to tackle the same goals. I'm working on that project with him.

For the RPGs, I still have yet to get to know them personally. I got into contact with them to minor disputes. I didn't resolve it as well since I wasn't the right person. It resolve on its own. I'm proud of the gang when they showcase their work on the front page, July 2014 RPG Highlights: Night at the Castle. I asked Tom to promote the RPG work.

Recruitment of New Teammates

Recommend and brought new two Mods, Acura Max and Dream.

  • Dream - I felt he was the best choice for battle forums. He did not accept the position until January or February 2014 when Sonata and I were caught off-guard to one user. I had school while Sonata had work. Most battle users said we needed more battle mods, but Sonata and Daniel didn't agree until that incident. Dream had more forum moderation experiences than me with better judgement. I'm not very knowledgeble in battle forums, feats, and such. I have to ask folks why certain matches are mismatch if I can't find an answer. Dream is quick like lightning. Even if he encounters something unfamiliar in anime and manga, he's able to adapt quickly and resolve it without any issues.
  • Acura Max - With Screened ending, I felt the site needed closure. His background in TV was ideal because he brought something new to the group of mods. He was the best man for the job because he was a mod at Screened. He would provide the soul anchorage in Anime Vice, helping Screened users find a 2nd home in Anime Vice. Most users went to Comic Vine and Giant Bomb out of fear that Anime Vice had a cloudy future. We still try to remain contact as we can. Mike20 started a Wikia called To Hollywood and Beyond where Acura, myself, Mike, Djames, SnowyMountain work on wikia pages in our spare time. Please check out the Anime Vice and Screened Timeline and the Screened Yearbook (April 2010 - March 14, 2014)!

Improvements Needed

  • Find a middle path between strict and lax moderation for the battle forums.
  • Find a place between individualism and community. I had some philosophical arguments with users, mods or my teammates, on our views of the community. Being brought up in Cambodia, I'm more of a community person. I place that above myself and individuals. This got me into heated arguments a few times. America is about individualism unlike back in certain Asian countries.
  • Balance college with Anime Vice. I did changed my major during fall 2013 when I became mod. I guess I was putting too much energy into the site over school at the cost of my grades. I couldn't manage my time well.
  • Need more fun stuff. WayBig is doing the AMV contest, Daniel has the caption contest, Dream has his tournament. All I have is the Tsundere Tournament. Look forward to the Monster Tournament. BigHeart711 wants to do it.

Thank you everyone. I will continue to do my best to help the community. I look forward to working with everyone.

Welcome to this week's manga releases. Last week, we had a huge selection, and this week, we have a small selection. I'm pretty familiar with Seven Deadly Sins and From the New World. I don't recommend reading From the New World if you are an anime fan of the series. There are differences between manga and anime. I feel the anime for From the New World was serious and executed better than the manga adaptation. For Seven Deadly Sins, if you want a break from the HST, try this manga series. It's about adventure and action as you follow Elizabeth's quest to unite 7 Knights who bear a sin for their crimes in order to save her kingdom.

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.
