takashichea (Level 25)

I finished Seven Deadly Sins Ep. 14 wiki page. I just watched Ep. 15 and read the manga at Crunchyroll for fun. I didn't do any wiki. I'm getting a bit tired. There are things to finish before Friday morning.

Hello everyone, this is a short blog on commemorating this achievement by my teammates, BigHeart711 and Acura Max. We started out adding trailers for the new anime series every season starting in Spring 2012. We started the project because the video feature in Anime Vice stopped working. After the Whiskey Media Saleout, BigHeart711 and I thought about making our own trailer threads as a substitute.

This project is one of most important community projects because it helps our fellow Vicers get introduce to new shows as well as making the wiki pages for blogs, news, and reviews to be attached. Another important aspect is making a place to discuss new anime in our community. We couldn't have done that without the help of another great Vicer, Daniel Newton, who created the discussion HTML coding templates when he told us to start converting trailers into discussion threads, I believe in 2013 (my memory is fuzzy).

Thank you everyone for your support! We keep on working, and we hope you check out the discussion threads (just click on #Anime Vice Discussion Threads)!

Note: I had missed the 500 mark, so I got it on the 550th mark.

Past Works

Welcome everyone! This is the rough draft guide of the Winter 2015 anime guide. The final version will be more condensed and split into three articles: Main, Movies/OVAs, and Simulcasts with opening statements. This rough draft version contains the Fall 2014 leftovers as well as past seasonal anime series which won't be included in the final version.

Wiki Editing Team

BigHeart711, Acura Max, and I are working on this project together for the past 2 years and going. We are working hard to help the community get up to date with the new anime seasons.

Progress Report

  • We have added every show from Anichart. There are 7 shows we omitted and were recorded on another source, Neregate. Historically, other site's anime guides have conflicting information. I have to look up various sources and compile a list of confirmed shows that will air this season.
  • Not every show has a trailer due to companies not being ready yet. Or it's on another video streaming site but not Youtube.
  • For OVAs and Movies, we haven't started on it yet.

Please let me know if I missed anything.

Welcome to the last weekly manga release blog of 2014! Sorry for being late since I had to catch up for the last 3 weeks due to school (Weekly Manga Releases: December 2, 9, and 16, 2014). I did finished 2 out 3 weeks with 11 volumes out of 20 for the 3rd week. I might go back and finish that blog.

This last batch is a bit small and will update when I get Right Stuf and Amazon's catalog for next week to double check.

For the manga releases this week, I'm still need to read Neon Genesis Evangelion after I dived into the franchise from a movie during Toonami's 2014 NGE block. The only familiar series here for me is Fairy Tail. I still love the series, and it doesn't have an end in sight for the original goal.

I would love to hear your recommendations on the rest of the manga series featured this week. 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.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Shinji Ikari Raising Project Volume 15
  • Distributor: Dark Horse Comics
  • Suggested retail price: $9.99

Is it just an optical illusion, or are Rei and Shinji actually getting closer to one another? Asuka isn't too sure - but one thing you can be sure of is that she'll be giving this perception test a hard stare! And on that note, is Asuka falling victim to the same baka-tivity that afflicts her childhood friend, as she decides to use some of Shinji's "techniques" to help bring Toji and Hikari closer together?
