Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders
Plot

The year is 1987 and 17-year-old Jotaro Kujo finds himself suddenly plagued by a ghost-like entity. Jotaro’s grandfather Joseph Joestar, a veteran of a fight to save humanity fifty years prior, arrives with his own supernatural aura and explains that this power, known as a “Stand,” physically manifests its user’s spirit and can be controlled by its user at will. The sudden emergence of these Stands is revealed to be caused by the revival of the megalomaniacal vampire DIO (the Joestar’s longtime enemy) whose awakening from his century-long slumber has triggered Stands to awaken down the Joestar family line, including in Jotaro’s mother whose uncontrollable Stand will ultimately kill her in a few weeks’ time. Jotaro, Joseph, and their allies have fifty days to locate DIO (using their Stands to thwart DIO’s network of devoted Stand-user minions along the way) and eliminate DIO himself in order to save Jotaro’s mother and prevent DIO’s ambitions of world domination.

Welcome to the first week of April's DVD and Blu-Ray releases! I don't know any of this series this week except Dragon Ball Z. From first impressions, Ebiten and Happiness! fits the slice of life trope with cute girls and a bit of fan service at the side. The only series that caught my eye is Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye. I usually look for either shows with some action or good comedy.

I know someone who watches Ebiten. What's your two cents on Ebiten? And I know someone who had watched Princess Nine due to a review recently written. What's your take on Princess Nine? Would you recommend it?

I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

As a result, mage-in-training Haruhi and her best friend Anri find themselves transferred into a normal class with Yuma and his best friends Hachisuke and Jun. Although how "normal" they are is debatable given that Hachi might be the world's biggest letch and Jun prefers to wear the girl's school uniform rather than the one for the guys! And there's something about Yuma as well, something that Haruhi notices almost immediately. But is Yuma aware of it yet? Whatever the answer, the most magical year of classes for both of them is about to begin, and the most important lessons learned won't be on conjuring or geometry.

Toriko Recognition Project - All winners get a Chopper trophy!
Toriko Recognition Project - All winners get a Chopper trophy!

Welcome everyone to the Toriko Recognition Blog! Yusuke52 was the one who started the project back in fall 2013. I wanted to help out, but it was a big task because there were not much pages. In fact, the only character page in the Toriko wiki database at the time was just Toriko. He and I started promoting the project and doing an outreach in the community. A lot has change when our gang grew in January. (See AV's Newest Wiki Projects Updates: Toriko and Seven Deadly Sins) It was awesome seeing folks from different niches joining our team. I would love to give out recognition to our community members who contributed to Toriko whether through wiki, blogs, and promotion in the battle threads.

Stay tuned, my teammates and I will do a Roundtable discussion on Toriko. It will posted on the front news thanks to our staff, Tom Pinchuk.

Toriko Wiki Gang

Here are my teammates who I'm proud to introduce. Please read their statements on how they got into Toriko and what they love about it.

I have a hard time uploading images for my teammates since AV is lagging since last week's four day lag. I listed their top five wiki pages in the Toriko project. For an exhaustive list of their wiki contributions, you can check out the Toriko wiki list where I record what they did as well as the creation dates for the Toriko wiki pages.

Yusuke52

Yusuke52 is a big video game fan. He loves Animal Crossing. (I didn't get his full list) He's a pro at writing up characters, franchise, and concept pages. He's a creative wiki editors. For his Capture Level page, he created an exhaustive list of all the Gourmet Beasts. It was an outstanding job he finished.

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Toriko (franchise page)
  2. Ichiryuu
  3. Capture Level
  4. Joa
  5. Chin Chinchin

His Take on Toriko:

I got my first look at Toriko back when I was debating in the battle forum. Just before I stopped debating there, Toriko was gaining some ground and recognition, and after a reading a few recommendations from people like Othus12, I went and read a few chapters and found that I enjoyed it. Unfortunately I didn’t really get into it for about a year but that was due to other personal aspects of my life causing me to lose my drive for anime and manga, which caused me to drop a few series, Toriko being one of them. The person who really got me back into it was a friend of mine who also happened to be a big fan of the series, something I only realised when I saw him buy a few volumes at a local bookstore. He gave me 2 volumes to start off with, and that was around my birthday last year. I took it from there and starting reading on and discussing the different arcs and characters with him.

The reason I like it would have to be that it’s very unique. I really like the way Mitsutoshi uses suggestions mailed in from the readers to create many of the animals and ingredients, something which adds great variety to the world, variety that I don't think many writters could achieve using their own ideas. The history, lore, details, and of course the characters have enough depth and substance to keep me invested in the series without losing interest too quickly. But I think the best thing about it is that it does an amazing job of keeping itself fresh and never ends up running stale like many series I have read. In my opinion, its story arcs don’t overstay their welcome, ending at the right moment before a new arc is introduced and it begins by changing up the location to something completely different and unique and adding in new and crazy animals and ingredients. Since I personally only keep up to date with a select few manga, some of which are now ending, it was a welcome addition.

Taichokage

A battle veteran in our community, Taichokage was a beast in the wiki pages. He's a character specialist, and boy, his memory is so sharp that he doesn't need to refer back to the source material. He can whip character pages in a day. While he hangs out in our community, he likes making lists of groups in Shonen and folks with guns.

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Zebra
  2. Midora
  3. Sunny
  4. Starjun
  5. Gowther

His Take on Toriko:

I took a real liking to Toriko after the later events in the Century Soup arc, around the 60 chapter mark. The intensity of the final bout was something I rarely have seen in Shounen. Mitsutoshi will put in old school levels of violence that you tend to only see in Seinen these days rather than Shounen. My favorite aspect of Toriko would have to be the characters. I've always thought that great characters can make up for average or sub par plot, but even the plot while not very complex is not lacking with Toriko. I like ALL of the main characters which is rare for me and they're all so different from one another. The art style is fairly unique. It bears somewhat of a resemblance to DBZ art but the art for the characters is very different.

I first looked at Toriko back in 2011 when it only had about 118 chapters and months before the anime began. I took interest in it but events in my life temporarily took me away from anime/manga. It was my longest hiatus from anime/manga since I got into it back in 2006. When I came back to anime/manga, I had almost forgotten about Toriko until early 2013 when my buddy othus12 was promoting it like no other. SpeedforceSpider, another friend was also highly complimentary of it as were a few others. I decided to make it my next manga to read once I had caught up to Magi. By the time I caught up just over a year ago, it had become one of my 2 favorite Shounen, the other being Magi. Needless to say, reading those 2 back to back was probably the most fun I've had with manga to date.

ForgottenOne

He was one of the new wiki editors I met back in fall 2013. Having moderated his wiki, I can tell he was a dedicated person. Besides Toriko, he loves Medaka Box and contributes on the wiki project. On the Toriko wiki pages, he specializes in concept pages as well as character pages. He is a very organized editor on our team.

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Full Course Menu
  2. Four Heavenly Kings
  3. Tengu Brunch
  4. Grinpatch
  5. Cooking Festival (Toriko)

His Take on Toriko:

I decided to try Toriko after my friend showed me a picture from a battle thread about the Mountain Turtle surviving bombardment from the army. I also heard high praise of Toriko by some people from different forums, this one too but it was mainly from othus at that point. The main thing I like about Toriko are those moments of shock such as Jirou's grand knocking and Midora's Hungry Space. The brutal fights also helps keep me attached to this series.

Bigz007

He was one of the most dedicated wiki editors specializing in uploading anime screenshots especially for Title Card and Eyecatch. He is an old teammate of mine because we work on so many wiki projects together. Being a big fan of Shonen series, he loves all sorts of genre. His motto is to never drop a show. In the community, he likes making lists to keep track of characters with common fashion or abilities like ridiculous number of swords and eyepatches.

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Toriko Episode Pages - He did a entire marathon on the series. He attached characters to the pages. Along with Yusuke52, he helps create new character pages. He also added story arc boxes to every episode. That's quite an accomplishment there.

His Take on Toriko:

Toriko was on my want to watch list for a long time and I was always kinda pushing it down because I want to watch so many things and my time is limited. Ever since AnimeVice crew launched Toriko project, I was more and more interested in this anime, and I also wanted to help them out with some wiki work.

The thing I didn't like at first is that the main crew start of very strong and I thought it would be hard to make those characters develop the right way because of that, but after some time I realized I was wrong and that there is really a lot of space for those characters to develop in every single aspect.

For me Toriko is really on the borderline between DBZ and One Piece, and that is not only because there are crossover episodes with those two franchises. It's like a combo of One Piece world and DBZ crazy overpowered characters.

WayBig1010101

Being a veteran in the battle forum like Taichokage, he contributed to our project. He is a big fan of MMA and wants to play the piano. In addition to his love of Toriko, he loves Fullmetal Alchemist, Clannad, and Future Diary. Check out his lists to find out more! Even though he was busy, he worked and made a great page for Setsuno. Besides his wiki contributions, he promotes the Toriko and other underrated franchises when he was the Battlation Of February 2014.

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Jirou
  2. Setsuno

His Take on Toriko:

Well I was first introduce to Toriko here on Anime Vice. A certain user by the name of Othus12 caught my attention when he started to debate about Toriko in the battle forms. Othus12's debates over toriko were so interesting that it became one of the main topics here on the vice and I continue to read the debates. Eventually I joined the Toriko debates and the more and more I debated, the more and more my knowledge of Toriko increased. In the end what really got me to try Toriko was not so much how powerful the series was, but just how much passion debaters such as othus12 were in their Toriko debates, which after leaning so much about the series decided to give it a chance.

At first Toriko was really hard to get into for me personally because I really did not think that a story with a premise that was centered around food in a shonen was going to be that good and the first couple of episodes my initial opinion was so far not changed. Besides the main character, Toriko, every other character at first felt either mediocre or generic and Komatsu, who is the main character sidekick, was so annoying for me that along with my other feelings for the series almost made me give up Toriko. What kept me in Toriko was the introduction of the other heavenly kings and the plot of the story. The new characters and the plot got me much more invested into the series and after a while of getting use to the bizarre concepts and the development of the core characters, I was able to finally experience the hype that surrounded Toriko, which only got better when I changed from anime to manga. What keeps me invested in Toriko ironically is the very first things that I did not enjoy about the story, which was the characters and the story, along with the insane fights, powerups, and creatively makes Toriko as of today one of my most enjoyable series to follow.

SpeedForceSpider

He is also one of the experienced folks in Anime Vice's battle forums. He is a big fan of Shonen and ecchi shows. Check out his Anime Babes list which shows he loves big boobs! He helped out with the wiki project. As Battlation Of January 2014, he promoted Toriko as well.

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Zebra

His Take on Toriko:

Well I became interested in Toriko largely due to my interest in GAR type characters. Toriko reminds me of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Fist of the North Star with a theme of food instead so that was a main factor in it. At first I was a bit iffy on it until the other King's started appearing, the villains were introduced, and the plot thickened. The thing I like the most about it however, is the fact that the entire cast is unique and they all have creative and interesting powers. Toriko is the type of series that seems like it will be a typical shonen on the surface until you give it a chance. I also find it cool the cast is full of mature adults instead of goofy teenagers who get beat up by female characters in a gag like scenario. Much better than the HST in every way, shape, or form to be honest.

Othus12

A friend of SpeedForceSpider, WayBig1010101, and Taichokage, he's is one the active users in the battle forums with a wealth of experience. He's a big fan of comics and manga particularly Shonen. His two biggest favorite Shonen series are Toriko and One Piece. Like his friends, he help promoted Toriko in the battle forums (Battlation Of March 2014)

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Toriko

His Take on Toriko:

At some point, I ran out of manga to read, and I was looking for something that would keep me entertained. I found Toriko, and ever since the first chapter, I found it awesome! What I like about Toriko the most is the locations and the ingredients. They seem very creative IMO. I also love the characters and the wild battles!

Takashichea

Best Wiki Accomplishments:

  1. Tina
  2. Komatsu
  3. A few Toriko episodes - I may not be able to add plot summaries to every episode. I'll do as much as I can.

His Take on Toriko:

I got into Toriko because it was a popular franchise in the battle forums. Before I explore the battle forums as a new mod back in the fall, I was asked by Yusuke52 to help out with the Toriko project. When I first published the Crunchyroll streams Toriko news blog, I was talking with Screenivas. We both said Toriko wasn't that popular in the site. Ironically, I never knew it was popular in the battle forums at that time. Yusuke52 saw our conversations and pointed out that there wasn't much Toriko wiki pages or anyone working. He asked for my help. I tried it out to see if I liked it. Sure enough, I like the series not too strongly like I love Fairy Tail and One Piece. It was good anime series with lovable characters. My favorite character so far is Coco. It was a strange Shonen series that's all about food. The beginning scenes by the narrator reminds of Willy Wonka at some points. It was a unique show with a dude in distress. Most Shonen shows have damsel in distress, and pretty much the supporting characters can fend for themselves. Komatsu is one strange character. He's an integral part of the series, and he's weak but gentle minded. His role remind me of Manta from Shaman King.

Honorable Mentions

Sorry, I rushed the blog. I meant to give out recognition to folks who contributed in the battle and discussion threads for Toriko.

Welcome to the last week of March's weekly manga releases. There is a large selection this week. A lot of series I'm very familiar with. I'm psyched that Fairy Tail is almost caught up to the Japanese copy ever since Ben Applegate of Kodansha said back at Kodansha Q & A Panel at Anime Expo 2013 that Kodansha will release one volume of Fairy Tail and Attack on Titan every month to catch up. I'm looking forward to Bloody Brat because I loved the Blood Lad anime we had back in summer 2013. It's a fun series that doesn't take itself seriously. It's about an otaku vampire trying to figure out how to restore his ghost friend's body.

I haven't play Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and I'm interested in the manga. Been a long time Kingdom Heart fan. Bought as a Christmas gift for my little sister. Watched her play and it got me addicted to it. It was my gateway into the Final Fantasy series. Soul Eater and Seven Deadly Sins are also on my read list. I haven't gotten deep in Seven Deadly Sins. It's also available on Crunchyroll's simulpub site.

All comments are welcome. I would love your two cents on these series. Thank you.

After her childhood acquaintance, the handsome but prickly Miyuki Sagara, suddenly reappears and enrolls in her school, Izumiko learns that she is the last vessel of the goddess Himegami, and Miyuki is forced to serve as her guardian. Although the two of fail to get along at the beginning, their meeting marks the beginning of a shift in Izumiko's destiny.
