Hello everyone, this is a progress report on what we saved. All active wiki editors are currently backing up data on their computer, Gdoc, Drop Box, Imgur while some are transferring to Wikia. We highly recommending backing up data first rather than transferring to Wikia since it requires more time to convert it and format it due to different coding systems.

All wiki editors of Anime Vice have an option of choosing a new home. Whatever you are comfortable with.

  • The official Anime Vice Wikia that Tom Pinchuk has personally created. Daniel, myself, Dekken, and Cloudguy are Admins. Right now, we are busy. We'll straighten out wiki policies after April 8th.
  • Comic Vine - Anime Vice's sister site. PikaHyper had contacted myself, and we made arrangements. If you like that, please contact me and PikaHyper so we get you settle in. That way you won't get hit by the Comic Vine's copyright and plagiarism policy.
  • Various Wikia sites

You can place a request here at the Help Desk: Back up Your Wiki and Reviews if you don't have time. A wiki editor will help you out.

Thank you and god bless Anime Vice. It has been a pleasure working with everyone in the wiki. Go Anime Vice!

Hey guys and gals! It's another weird idea/question I had with a trend. Thanks to Taichokage and the folks at the The Seven Deadly Sins Discussion (Manga) discussion for the inspiration.

These are the four franchises that I think of (I forgot about Toriko until Taichokage reminded me).

Beware of spoilers!

Shaman King
In Shaman King, there is a device called Oracle Pager which measures how much Furyoku a person has. It's like their energy level to summon spirits, fuse them for Oversoul, etc. This series is an example that it does and does not matter. In one of the fight with Tao Ren and Hao's followers, Tao ignores the numbers. (my memory is blurry. He was doing well until they reveal the numbers. He got his butt kicked) When it does matter, Yoh mentions how much Hao has, in the millions, making the unbelievably difficult to beat Hao.
The only way to increase one's Furyoku is near death experiences or getting revived after being killed.
Dragon Ball Z
Raditz along with Frieza's men has those power scouters to measure. This is a case where numbers don't really matter since Goku and the gang can hide their power level. Goku has demonstrated he is man who passes his limits.
Toriko
Capture Level plays a huge part. There are some Gourmet Beasts with unknown levels. It's guarantee to determine and stratify the power levels of Gourmet Beasts.
The Seven Deadly Sins
I just found out this series has used a number system. I haven't read the manga. You guys can fill me in. Looks like in Toriko's case, numbers do matter.

Thanks everyone. Please share your thoughts.

Edit:

If you know any franchises that involves numbers and power levels, let us know!

Welcome to the final blog! I added the Quick Picks name back to honor Geo and BigHeart711 and their work. Gia Manry started the project back in 2009 and then Geo picked it up. He passed it down to me and BigHeart711 back in 2012. Geo had BigHeart711 and myself PM Tom the weekly Quick Picks and put it on the front page. 3 years went into this project to promote the industry and getting people to buy manga and DVDs/BDs legally. The reason I dropped the name Quick Picks because my partner got busy with school. I didn't want to burden him. I went solo in 2013 and adopted the name, Weekly DVD/BD Releases and Weekly Manga Releases and split the workload in half since manga was generally more heavier. I did manga releases later in the week rather than on Tuesday which was mostly school day for me.

I thank you everyone for your support.

At Hekiyo Academy, all but one of the Student Council members are elected via popularity contests, and since teenagers think with hormones more often than intellects, those seats are filled by the attractive derrieres of the school's most beautiful girls! That makes things extra rough on the one student chosen for academic scores, because besides being the council's only male member, one of Ken Sugisaki's main assignments is writing stories informing the student body about the many achievements of their Student Council.

To do that he'll have to manipulate the truth just a bit, and given that Ken's a besotted fan of dating video games who fantasizes about his fellow council members as his "harem", things tend to get even more out of hand. Plus, exactly who's going to be the leading lady is up for debate, as immature Kurimu, tomboyish Minatsu, twisted Chizuru, and "boy's love" obsessed Mafuyu are all trying to add their own particular spins even as their jealous rivals in the Journalism Club aim to shoot them down!
