Welcome to the 2nd to last week of DVD and Blu-Ray releases for August! It's a small selection. I'm not familiar with either A Certain Scientific Railgun nor Mayo Chiki! Based on the summaries and DVD/BD covers, Railgun is right up my alley. I do like action, sci-fi series, and I haven't had enough series.

I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Elsewhere in the city, an adorable young girl named Febrie is brought into Misaka's circle of friends. As they begin to learn more about Febrie's past, they discover that she, too, is a victim of scientific forces in the city - and that's something Misaka and the girls of Judgment simply won't stand for.

When you've got acute gynophobia,​ even a pretty girl can be like a malady,​ and as the sparring partner for his family of female wrestlers,​ Sakamachi Kinjiro has the worst case ever! Just one touch makes his nose bleed,​ so school's a bloody nightmare even before Kanade,​ the principal's twisted daughter,​ deduces both Kinjiro's "feminine issue" and that his name contains the sounds "Chi" and "Kin" back to back.​ But Chi-Kinjiro's female troubles don't totally redline until a wrong turn in the men's room exposes the secret Subaru,​ Kanade's manservant,​ has been hiding in the water closet.​ (Well,​ to be fair,​ SHE is still a servant.​)

If Subaru's cross reactions concerning her cross-dressing aren't enough of a drag,​ Kinjiro's girl problems also include a haunted martial artist (with ghosts), a cat-eared fetishist (meow!), and his own sister,​ who's interest in "wrestling" a certain incorrectly packaged butler may result in an unexpected ending!

  • Contains episodes 1-13.​
  • Special Features: Clean Opening Animation,​ Clean Closing Animation.​
  • Spoken Languages: English,​ Japanese,​ English subtitles.​

It's a short blog because I know myself well. I tend to be scatterbrain and distracted with many things. Using my status bar helps, but it doesn't plan out things.

  • Introduce Akame ga Kill wiki teammates
  • Add Falbium and IndridCold's Manhwa series to the wiki database
  • Write reviews for WayBig's project, Anime Survey and Reviews (Summer 2014)
  • The Best Battle User of August 2014 is having issues since Girugamesh is inactive. So Flashback180 will take over as soon as I get word from him, too.
  • Continue the Tsundere Tournament ♀. Vapovile is doing the semi-finals. Haven't receive word from him either. I might do it without him by Wednesday.
  • Add the Fall 2014 Anime Series to the wiki database. I have to prepare for September when we start adding trailer/discussion threads for the new anime season, fall 2014.
  • Start the Gdoc program for sickVisionz's Top Anime and Manga of 2014. It's important I get a head start because when fall starts, I won't have time.
  • Plan out a wiki schedule for Fall 2014 anime season.

I believe Fall 2014 has the most sequels and Shonen series that were part of my wiki projects.

  • Chaika Season 2
  • Fate/Stay Night Remake (2014)
  • Seven Deadly Sins
  • Akame ga Kill (It's 2 cour)
  • One Piece
  • Fairy Tail
  • Stardust Crusaders (rumored to be 4 cour)

I have teammates to support, but I have to make some sacrifices later on in order to balance school, family work, and Anime Vice moderation roles.

Current Community Projects

  • Assist Daniel with Caption Contest
  • Issue the Weekly Manga and Anime DVD/Blu-Ray Releases
  • Moderate Wiki
  • Post the monthly Megami and Nyantype posters at Ecchi Club
  • Assist WayBig with his AMV project

Welcome everyone to the Chaika Wiki Recognition blog! With recognition blogs, I give out recognitions for my teammates who worked hard in the wiki projects. My teammates are working to improve the site. With wiki pages, we help create pages for folks to attach blogs, reviews, and discussion topics too. It helps folks meet up with folks and bond while sharing their favorite anime and working together in the wiki community.

That's how we roll in Anime Vice.

First off, let me introduce my teammates.

Team Members

AgentFakku
He's from Brooklyn, New York. His favorite anime series is Sword Art Online, High School DxD, and Blazblue Alter Memory. He enjoys spending time in Ecchi Club and Hentai Club. He's a strong advocate of a hentai site called Fakku. Finally, he's a Hentai wiki specialist, adding new Hentai pages for the Hentai Club monthly. Though, he feels he's still inexperienced but grateful to have me moderating his wiki pages and guiding him to become a top wiki editor soon.

He aspires to be the best Hentai wiki editor in Anime Vice with the most hentai pages created.
Sidapa
He is a new wiki editor who works at Anime Vice, and he originally a Wikia member who used to work at Chaika Wikia.
Unfortunately, I don't have Sidapa's intro since I lost contact with my teammate. This is all I have for now.
Takashichea
I'm a sixth year student of Asian American Studies, a resident of California, and a 3rd year member at Anime Vice. I currently serve as a wiki mod in Anime Vice since September 12, 2013. I'm currently a retired Admin at Sket Dance and Btooom Wikia since I have to stop due to being a new mod in Anime Vice. I still kept my account semi-active at To Hollywood and Beyond Wikia because it's Screened's second home.

I'm an episode wiki specialist, but I do work on other types of wiki pages. My strong skill is gathering groups of editors from across communities and building great wiki pages with them. My goals in Anime Vice is to build a strong, tight knit and balanced community by working with key users of various niches.

For those who are new to Chaika, here's a summary my teammates and I prepare for you. We hope you try out Chaika - Coffin Princess!

Chaika - The Coffin Princess revolves around a trio: a young female wizard named Chaika and the Saboteur siblings, Toru and Akari, who assist Chaika in retrieving her father's remains. Chaika wishes to give her father a proper burial. Her father is Emperor Gaz who had been slain by the eight heroes, and as a result, his empire had been dismantled. Individual countries are now managed by the Kliemann Organization during the post war period. There are individuals who will stop Chaika and her gang from her goals while there are others who compete with her in taking her father's remains.

Our Accomplishments

In the Chaika wiki project of Anime Vice, my teammates and I work in different pages. Sidapa was mostly a light novel and manga editor who also works on concept pages while AgentFakku works on concept pages and attaching things to character and misc pages.

Our work is not done given how difficult it is to obtain light novel and manga data because Chaika isn't available legally, forcing us to resort to other means in order to fulfill our tasks. Though, the light novel text is an issue still.

Best Works

  • Sidapa has written a great page on Fayla.
  • I have written a great page for Chaika Travant. I left the story arcs blank since that's reserved for original source material, the light novel.
  • I prepared a good season 1 wiki page for Chaika - The Coffin Princess's anime page.

Accomplishments

  • August 17, 2014 - I finished all episode summaries for Chaika season 1.

Thank you everyone for reading this blog. Please give my teammates a round of applause for their hard work.

Welcome everyone, I just picked up a strange idea after working out coding in the community projects I worked with.

For those knew me well, I have this habit of picking up strange ideas when I'm stressed and working hard. I do weird blogs all of the time to relax and have fun with folks in the community while introducing new anime and manga or new ideas and patterns my folks and myself notice.

I was reading Senyu while recalling Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei yesterday. Both are comedic manga series that are crazy and ridiculous. I never notice it had some dark humor in it. This is where the "dark chocolate" idea came in. It's bittersweet comedy with a twist at the end. These two series are in my strange list.

Senyu is a bit an oddball at first. Watching the anime, it never got to the dark twist in the manga. I won't spoil it for folks who haven't tried it. Just don't judge a character by their looks and silly antics. One of the characters has a brutal past which is involved with the whole world going down. I recommend Senyu if you like comedy and want to kill time with silly slapstick and nonsensical humor. If you want to get deep in the story, be sure to try the manga.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is one I never got far in. I first tried it when Superevil225 started a Weird Or What? - Sayonara, Zetsubou Sensei - Episode 1 blog on this series. I got curious about this Shaft produced anime. Speaking of Shaft, I never knew this anime was my first Shaft show after seeing Nisekoi and Mekaku City and bugging sickVisionz if he's a Shaft fan. Shaft actually did a better job with Sayonara Zetsubou than the two recent shows I watch this year because the surrealism works with Sayonara well.

For my recommendation on Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, if you like a show that is rich in Japanese culture and makes tons of parodies and jokes while set in a school by a pessimistic, suicidal teacher and his class of unique and mostly composed of girls, then this show is for you. The dark twist I heard from folks who finished the series. It is a surprise twist which I tried to forget, but I never notice it. I won't spoil you. Just don't judge this series by its book. It's pretty dark humor this series has.

Thank you everyone. I hope you try these two manga series out.

Your Dark Chocolate Manga

Senyu
After a hole in the world is releasing demons, the king has sent out descendants of the great hero to stop the invasion. The story focuses on one hero named Alba who is journeying with Ross. The two encounter Ruki, the daughter of the demon king, who is responsible for accidentally unleashing the demons in the world.
Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei
Nozomu Itoshiki is not very happy with his life. More accurately, he is depressed, and wants to end it as soon as possible. However, no matter what he does his suicide attempts never seem to work out. So, he's stuck with his ragtag class of crazies. No, they don't band together and learn life lessons. Yes, they get into all sorts of trouble and just become progressively weirder and weirder. And it goes on... and on... AND ON...

Welcome to this week's manga releases. We have a large selection this week. I'm hyped for Magi and Fairy Tail, being a long time fan of these franchises. Fairy Tail and Magi are both Shonen series with plenty of fan service. Fairy Tail is a bit light hearted than Magi in terms of content. If you are a Shonen fan and want a break from the HST (One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach), give these two series a try.

Please feel free to share your thoughts on what manga releases you're interested in this week. Thank you.

The covers are from Amazon and Right Stuf.
