Hello everyone, welcome to this week's manga releases! It's the last Quick Pick manga edition for this year. We're wrapping it up with Attack on Titan, one of the best manga series this year, and a reverse harem series based on Quin Rose's otome games.

Note: For the manga covers, I wasn't able to get a decent English cover for both Attack on Titan and Crimson Empire. I'll replace them soon.

Welcome everyone! This used to be called Quick Picks because my teammates and I used to do this together. We would pick some DVDs and Blu Rays that we were interested in just to promote a certain franchise.

This week, we have Sentai Filmworks and its two beautiful series. These will make great Christmas gifts if your friend, co-worker, or family member love the romance anime series, give Say I Love You anime series a try. If they love cute, satirical, comedic anime series, try the Humanity Has Declined anime. Merry Christmas everyone!

DVD and Blu Ray Releases

Humanity Has Declined - Complete Collection (Sub.DVD)
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • SRP: $59.98

For years, declining birth rates have forced what's left of the human race to cede more and more territory to other beings who have appeared to take advantage of the emptying ecological niche. Now, only a handful of humans remain among the remnants of civilization and Earth is dominated by faeries - tiny, ten-inch tall creatures of surprising intelligence. But humanity's importance isn't over quite yet, as young Watashi learns as she makes the decision to return to her hometown and assume her grandfather's position as an arbitrator between the races. Unfortunately, the job isn't going to be anywhere near as simple as she expected, and it's going to take wisdom far beyond her years to achieve her most important mission. It's not about how often you fall and fail, it's about how often you get back up and try again, and the human race still has a lot left to accomplish.

Humanity Has Declined - Complete Collection (Sub.Blu-Ray)
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • SRP: $49.98
Say "I love you." - Complete Collection (Blu-Ray)
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • SRP: $59.98

Friends suck, and trusting someone is just setting yourself up. That's the lesson Mei Tachibana learned after her heart was ripped out and only a shell was left where a girl used to be. But unlike so many, she found an easy solution: she'll never make another friend. Ever. Okay, maybe that's not as easy as it sounds, but it's worked for Mei - or at least, it did until handsome, charming and annoyingly popular Yamato Kurosawa came along. For some freakish reason, he seems to like Mei. He even gave her his phone number! As if she would ever call him. Except she did. But only because she needed help. Still, he came. He actually came. And now things are getting way too complicated. Mei's no princess in a tower. She's not waiting for a knight in shining armor to rescue her. So why did he have to kiss her and confuse everything? And why are those three little words so hard to say?

Hello everyone! sickVisionz and I have finished setting up the poll for the Vote for Your Favorite Anime in 2013! project. Please vote for your top 5 shows if you haven't done it yet.

Today, I was over at Giant Bomb, reading the community spotlights. I saw they were doing the Best of 2013 Games in list forms. It would be a great idea to do this too just for fun.

The only requirement is that lists cannot exceed 10 items. You can list anime series that ran before 2013. It doesn't have to run in 2013. I did this, so folks who are catching up on old anime series can list shows they personally watch this year. Please drop a link to your list. I'll add them to the blog. Thank you.

I hope everyone have a nice Christmas break. For me, I probably be working.

Hi everyone, I'm Takashichea, one of the wiki editors who posts trailers for the upcoming anime seasons. Many of you are PMing me where are the trailers. I have answered a lot of these PMs, so I decided to make an announcement just to make things easier for everyone.

Since my friend Daniel Newton told my teammates and I to start making discussion threads instead of trailer threads back in the Fall 2013, it has been confusing for those who are looking for these trailers.

There are 4 places you find them.

  1. #Anime Vice Discussion Threads - It's located on the left side when you visit the forum board.
  2. Discussion Directory ~ Chat about New Anime & Manga! - Daniel has made a hub thread for the discussion threads.
  3. Anime Video List - I'm the creator of this list. I record every trailer that my teammates have created. If you're on an anime series wiki page, you find my list on the right hand side. Click on that list and browse thru it. I have a link to the discussions and trailers.
  4. Current Anime Trailer Guides - With the help of my teammates, I create a list of all the anime trailers for the upcoming seasons.

Here are the past Anime Seasons:

They are no longer located in the anime series' forum pages. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. It is easier that all trailers are found in one forum location. It's just confusing where to access this forum thread.

If you're lost or new to this site, just PM me or my teamates. We will direct you to our seasonal anime guides.
