Going thru the Fall 2014 Season line up and searching for trailers. There are a lot of sequels which means less trailer threads to make. Have to create their wiki pages. Relinking old Quick Pick threads. PM me if you need me.

Welcome everyone! My partner, Auron570, and I finish the Tari Tari anime project which includes the episodes. With limited time, we'll edit the characters later.

The project was started on July 12, 2012 and ended on October 6, 2012.

Final Impressions

Auron570 wrote his final impressions in his blog, Tari Tari final thoughts: well-made but shallow.

For me, Tari Tari was my first, official slice of life series. I don't include Sket Dance to be my first since I felt it was more gag shonen comedy than slice of life. It was a new experience, and I enjoyed how each character had a piece of the attention given to them in this short series. Though, Wakana and Sawa had most attention. I tried this series because people were calling it the Moe version of Glee. After I watched it, it was not Moe or Glee in any sense. The singing is not done every episode, and it's not overwhelming, but when they do sing, it sounds beautiful.

For those who are new to Tari Tari:

Tari Tari revolves around 5 Japanese school teenagers and when Konatsu quits the Choir, she tries to enlist the help of Wakana, Sawa, Taichi, and Atsuhiro in her new club. Each member of the choir struggle with their pasts as they go through every day life.

Teammate

Auron570

He's a wiki editor who specializes in Slice of Life wiki projects. He was my teammate on the Gosick project with HalberdierV2.

(Will fill in this later)

Episode Work

Auron570 and I took turns on the episode work. He did the even episodes while I did the odd episodes.

All episodes have a Crunchyroll synopsis except episodes 1 and 13, and I included weekly reports which helps promote discussion and the wiki.

Plot

Welcome to the weekly Fairy Tail report. I'm proud to announced that the Starry Sky/ Filler arc is finished! Though, we get to see Byro and his gang for one more time in this episode.

After Makarov accepts Byro's apology, the Fairy Tail gang and Legion have a wild party. Then, Makarov has a word with Gildartz and the others reach some closure with each other. Meanwhile, two mysterious strangers appear. It's Sting and Rogue, the newest Dragon Slayers in the anime.

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

  • Juvia: Gray, who is this guy?
    Juvia: Gray, who is this guy?
    Finally this filler arc ends. We get a bit of Sting and Rogue and news that Gildartz is the new guild master. Wonder how Gildartz will handle leadership.
  • While Lucy and Mary's scene is touching, Juvia and Dan's scenes are funny. I love how Dan is frighten by Juvia or the fact that Juvia ignores that Gray's beauty attracts men such as Sugarboy. The part where Natsu tries to make Byro smile is awkward yet humorous.
  • Theme songs are great. The ending is mellow and shows Mavis who we haven't seen much. The opening is also mellow, and I like how it shows all of the guilds fighting in the tournament.

Bad

  • For those who want to get into the main storyline, the first half is just filler part where they party. It was a slow episode.

Bizarre

  • The cats are in strange color. When I first saw Frosh in the manga, I thought he is in a green or blue frog suit, and his fur is red. Instead, we get a pink frog. For me, I thougt Lector was suppose to be orange or yellow. I don't mind the colors.
  • In the opening, team Fairy Tail had purple outfits. It's a unique color to say the least.

Overall, the episode is average but good. It's just slow when you looking at the Fairy Tail characters catching up with Legion and there is some exposition on Zeref and Sabertooth's part.

Thanks

Thank you guys for reading this report.

Hello everyone! The wiki editing team and I just finish another anime project, Campione! This project only covers the episodes since we don't have much time to do them now.

We started the project on July 7, 2012, and after 13 episodes, we finished it on September 29, 2012. It was an intense project since it was the first time that my teammates and I took on multiple wiki projects on the new summer anime and older anime shows.

Please see Wiki Project and List (Campione! and WIP) for more information on the wiki pages we created just for Campione! and other things.

For those who are new to Campione!, here's a synopsis:

CAMPIONE! surrounds protagonist Godo Kusanagi, a high school student that kills a god, claiming its power and title of Campione, to slay other gods. This harem love comedy is bound to be filled with magical battles.

Via Crunchyroll

Teammates

My teammates are Daniel Newton and Sonata, and the independent wiki editors who help out in the wiki pages are FoxxFireArt and AnimeReviewDaily.

  • Daniel helps out with formatting the anime series and episode wiki pages. His character tables look awesome, and he adds anime art from the Nyantype and Megami magazines.
  • Sonata specializes in making profile images and adding powers to the characters

Supporters

  • FoxxFireArt deals with the manga and light novel portion of Campione.
  • AnimeReviewDaily is a new wiki editor who worked on the character table and Godou's page. Even he struggles with grammar, his work is greatly appreciated.

Episode Work

Greetings fans of Tari Tari! Crunchyroll shares some cool photos of the Tari Tari Exhibition at OtaRoad in Osaka's Nippombashi district of Japan.

All of the photos were taken by Mikikazu Komatsu with the permission from the store, Geestore Osaka Annex.

For those who are new to Tari Tari, here's a synopsis written my teammate, Auron570, and I.

Tari Tari revolves around 5 Japanese school teenagers and when Konatsu quits the Choir, she tries to enlist the help of Wakana, Sawa, Taichi, and Atsuhiro in her new club. Each member of the choir struggle with their pasts as they go through every day life.

TV Screenshots

Behold! It's like seeing a history of the anime's story.

Character Design Sheets

These are cool to look at since you see the early designs for the characters and what they went with and what they rejected.

Story Boards and Animations

Story Boards are like the blueprints for shows. It's interesting to see how detailed their rough sketches and what ideas were scrapped.

For animations, I love to see how they make the illustrations "move."

Merchandise

For the last group of snapshots, we have a surfboard with the autographs of the seiyuu of the anime, Yuzu Otome cider, some cool t-shirts and other things, and finally a "hug pillow."

I call it a body pillow since they took Sawa's innocence by making her reveal cleavage. Tari Tari is a good Slice of Life show that has no fan service.

Its size is 150 x 50cm. Sawa Okita's hug pillow comes in two versions:

  • polyester twill version for 8,400yen ($108)
  • smooth knit goes for 9,450yen ($120)

Sources

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Binbogami ga! is one of the new summer 2012 anime series that is very popular in Anime Vice. When I tried it out of Sonata's recommendation, I fell in love with the series. Sonata and I started the wiki project on July 19, 2012, and the anime project ended on September 28, 2012 with a total of 13 episode summaries.

We had an awesome Binbogami Ga! discussion thread, and then, Tom Pinchuk started a series of Watch and Learn articles on it.

Important Wiki Info Pages: Binbogami Ga! wiki project and wiki list

Synopsis

For those who are new to the anime series, here's a synopsis written by DocHaus:

Sakura Ichiko is an incredibly smart, athletic, wealthy, beautiful and otherwise talented high school girl, so much that the Japanese kami are concerned. Apparently, the reason Ichiko is so talented and lucky is because she unknowingly sucks out the "happiness energy" of everyone around her, giving herself extra luck at the expense of others. Momiji, the Japanese god of poverty and misfortune, is sent to suck out some of this energy in order to restore the balance of karma in the world, but not even Momiji's god status can save her from Ichiko's abundance of luck as she becomes thwarted time and time again.

Teammates and Their Roles

I already introduced my teammates in the wiki project blog, so I just going to list them.

Sonata: He's my teammate who specializes in images and powers for the characters.
Daniel Newton: He helps the team by formatting the episode pages with navigator boxes, synopsis, and misc sections.
DocHaus: He's more of a manga specialist, and he works on the main anime series page.
FoxxFireArt: He's there for support when the team needed Japanese names for the characters.

Independent Wiki Editors: Buhssuht, Wraith, and BigHeart711
