Hello everyone, this blog has two binary purposes. One to show off our image galleries and Two, to post a checklist for wiki editors. I am currently cleaning out images for the Fate wiki project. I'm removing Official Art and replacing it with Anime Art that has clear definitions of what goes in there. For more information, please check the Fate/stay Night, Fate/kaleid, and Fate/zero Image Gallery Updates and Wiki Editing 101: Naming Image Galleries and Organizing Images threads.

Thank you.

Fate/stay Night Visual Collection

Some of these cross into Megami's Magazine.

Most of these are from Saber because I haven't started cleaning in the other galleries besides Saber's today.

Welcome to this week's releases. We got a quite a large selection.

Familiar Series I Would Recommend

  • RWBY - This is the only series this week I'm familiar with. RWBY is somewhat an anime and not an anime at the same time since it was produced in the states. RWBY has great fight choreography, creative weapons, and a great cast of characters. The only thing you got to get used is the voice acting. The story can be a bit linear.

Unfamiliar Series I Would Try

  • Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl - I got to get more slice of life comedic series under my belt. The synopsis of a little girl pretending to be an alien reminds me of Gugure! Kokkuri-san.
  • Okamikakushi - The art cover looks interesting. After reading the synopsis, I'm want to find out those riddles and how much action this show has.

I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. 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.

  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • Suggested retail price: $59.98

From the moment Hiroshi and his family arrive in Jouga, he senses something odd about the isolated village. It's not that the people are cold and aloof; except for his beautiful class president, Nemuru, most welcome him quite warmly. But some also simply disappear.

Students transfer out of his school without any notice, and Hiroshi's next door neighbor Isuzu, who seems quite infatuated with him, warns him to stay away from the old part of town. The upcoming Haasaku Festival, which celebrates the town's unique oranges, seems to be generating an unusual level of concern, and groups of masked people roam the streets by night, hunting... something. Could the legends of man-sized wolves roaming the mountains surrounding Jouga be real? Who is the girl with the scythe? What is the real purpose of the festival? And how does this all revolve around something called a Temptation? Hiroshi and his new circle of friends have little time to solve these riddles before the answers will become far more dangerous and personal than he could ever imagine!

Infinite Stratos 2 DVD Complete Collection (Hyb)
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • Suggested retail price: $59.98

None of the femmes fatales in his life have canceled their conquest scenarios. There's double trouble arriving in the form of the Sarashiki sisters, the rest of the school is still waiting in line to take their shot. and when a whole new set of female pilots working for the bad guys shows up with a new generation of stolen IS hardware, things are about to get utterly lethal!

Discussion Threads

What's our hottest discussion threads in anime? I didn't include manga since only Toriko Manga Discussion has been active.

Anime Series That are 2 Cour and Beyond

I'm pretty shocked out of the older anime discussion threads. Sword Art Online has an astounding 59,000 views. For 2 cour series, Akame ga Kill is very popular with the most comments (2nd to Sword Art Online) and the most views of its category.

Fall 2014 Series

It's strange Cross Ange has the most views. The Fall 2014 discussion thread that has the most comments would be Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works.
