Welcome to the first week of December's releases! It's a small selection.

Familiar Series I recommend

  • Diabolik Lovers - I probably won't recommend this series to most folks only to users who tolerate abusive reverse harem shows. It's a reverse harem series based on an otome game. What makes show bad to most folks is the young heroine winds up being hounded by vampires who snack on her without getting much resistance.
  • Fairy Tail - If you are a Shonen fan who doesn't mind ecchi and friendship, try this one out. I think this one is great for newcomers who love magic and action based Shonen. For the veteran Shonen fans who are hardcore, they might not like this series compared to the other Shonen series.

Unfamiliar Series I would Try

  • Devilman - I haven't seen a lot of older series that are before 2000.

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.

To her dismay, she discovers that she'll be living with six very attractive young men, and not a single one is human!

If trying to keep an entire brood of vampires at fangs' length wasn't stressful enough, there are even more sinister forces at work, threatening not only Yui's life, but her very soul.

For some that comes sooner than expected, as Leina finds herself drawn to aid her sister, Elina, who's been captured by Echidna. Tortured by the Swamp Witch, Melona focuses her anger on the absent Airi and plots an insidious revenge. But when confronted with their common enemies, how long can it be until they both seek to reunite with Menace?

And if that's not enough trouble to be forming on the horizon, Nanael manages to get herself banished from Heaven and her goal of forming a harem of servants for herself proves to be anything but angelic. Finally, to provide the beasts to go along with the beauties, both Alleyene and Nowa and Tomoe and Aldra each find their separate journeys marred by encounters with different forms of tentacled monsters!

Welcome to the last week of DVD and Blu-Ray releases for the states! I hope you guys have a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend.

Familiar Series I would Recommend

  • Nisekoi - This one is hard for me since harem series tend to be generic or a hit or miss with folks. Nisekoi doesn't deviate from your average harem shows. Plus, Nisekoi has a underwhelming cast which can be hard if you don't like their characters. It's better for me to say, just try the first episode to see if you like it.
  • Road to Ninja - Some folks love it while some folks didn't. I'm the ones who liked it purely out of fan service. It was still a rinse and repeat of most Naruto films, but it has a lot of old favorite characters in an alternative universe. That what appeals to some folks.

Shows I would Try

  • Amagami - I'm not much of a slice of fan, but based on the cover, it looks like a harem. I can get used to slice of life harem shows more easily than pure slice of life shows.

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.

Amagami SS - Complete Collection

Junichi Tachibana has never been lucky in love. Ever since his date stood him up on Christmas Eve two years ago, he's pretty much given up on the whole idea; however, there are quite a few girls who would all make wonderful partners for Junichi if he would only open his eyes. Could he have struck up a meaningful relationship with any of them if he'd done the right things and said the right words?

Well, it's time to find out as Fate steps in and decides to see what would happen if Junichi were to snap out of his funk and take a chance. It's a whole new twist on the idea of love at sixth or seventh sight, and if one boy and a whole lot of different girlfriends-to-be sounds like a lot of wishful thinking... well, it is! But wishes have a habit of coming true and the statistical odds are definitely on Junichi's side as the guy without a date's luck with the ladies goes from bad to multi-verse!

Except it's not even exactly the game they knew: things are in different places, the portals don't work, and if a gamer was playing an avatar who wasn't a physical match for their real self... well, let's just say that everyone who's been playing is going to have to make some serious adjustments to their new world view.

On top of that, the former Non-Player-Characters are now self-aware and working towards their own ends. This collision of the Elder Tale people and players with seemingly impossible skills, abilities, and knowledge promises to be cataclysmic. Get ready for heroes to rise and new legends to be forged as Shiroe and fellow players Naotsugu and Akatsuki discover what happens when sword and sorcery becomes real!

Welcome everyone to the 2 week's weekly manga releases. I'm sorry for being late last week. School, Church, and other projects in Anime Vice were taking a lot of time. They were of higher priority for me.

This blog is unfinished since I have class in an hour. I thought I can knock out 5, but I only did 3 in an hour. Last week has a ton of manga releases, so this month's manga releases is the most I seen since the first week had over 30 releases while the third week had over 20 releases. It's pretty insane workload to catalog these releases.

I would love to hear your recommendations on the rest of the manga series featured this week. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Hello everyone, welcome to the first step of Anime Vice's Top Anime and Manga of 2014! Every year since 2012, sickVisionz, one of Anime Vice's senior mods, started this community project and making voting sheets for the community. He wanted to create a community wide poll to see what our community love.

In 2013, I started the Top 10 Manga of 2013 Voting Project using sickVisionz's formula except I had 10.

For this year, the top anime and manga's calcs will be done by sickVisionz while I'm in charge of maintaining the gdoc voting sheets for the anime and manga. sickVisionz and I worked on the anime and manga sheets since summer of 2014. We did finish the anime gdocs but the manga gdocs hasn't been finished yet. I don't think we get every manga, but we get the most we can.

Voting Gdoc Sheets

This is where you can help us. This is a very huge project with a lot of time invested in making an archive.

I set up two archives:

which made our lives easier to make the manga sheets as accurate as we can.

How can you help us

Report any manga series ending in 2014, just the name. Double check the Wikipedia, Anime News Network, and any credible/official sources. I will check with you as well to confirm the information. Don't worry about the columns B to I. That's for extra research for myself.

Thank you for your help. I hope we get a great turnout and see everyone's voices.
