takashichea (Level 25)

Oh crap, I spoiled myself on Seven Deadly Sins. I wanted to see if I need to add Armored Giant, and it turns out he is another character. Son of a gun.

Neon Alley is an online, legal streaming site that specializes in bring dubbed anime before the Blu Ray and DVD hits US and Canadian stores. With some new announcements from Viz Media, Neon Alley is transitioning its services to HULU starting on April 1. According to ANN and Crunchyroll, Neon Alley's shows will have no ads on HULU Plus. I'm actually confused since I use HULU Plus, and everything has ads except for certain kid shows that explicitly said no ads.

In the FAQ, Neon Alley is free.

Will Neon Alley REALLY be free?

YES! There will no longer be a membership required to watch Neon Alley! Starting April 1, 2014, all of Neon Alley's content will be made available free to anyone in the United States by simply going to NeonAlley.com. (An announcement will be forthcoming about how Canadian fans will be able to access the content).

If you do know, please correct me. I have to double check this.

For more information, check out the Neon Alley website and its list of shows.

Welcome everyone! It's the 2nd week of February, and wow, time is flying fast. We have a small batch of releases full of adorable, little girls (MM! and Strike Witches) and one Shojo series (Kamisama Kiss). Personally, I haven't tried any of these shows. I would love to hear folks' recommendations on these anime series.

MM! is a harem series, and judging from the cover and synopsis, it's strange to see a masochistic male lead. I can't imagine loli girls abusing the lucky guy in this show. Strike Witches looks like Girls Und Panzer except rocket boots for feet. Kamisama Kiss reminds me of Spice and Wolf except it's a wolf guy not a fox lady. Forgive me, I'm a noob in anime.

Source: All summaries for the anime are from ANN's List of DVD/BD Releases.

MM! - Complete Collection (Blu-Ray)
  • Distributor: Sentai Filmworks
  • Suggested retail price: $69.98

There are twisted tales and twisted tails, but few are as twisted as poor Sado's, who's just realized that he LIKES being made miserable. Of course, knowing that only makes him more miserable, which in turn. Well, you get the idea. Desperate to break the perverse cycle, Sado volunteers for a special club where he hopes he can work through his issues. And though he probably should have expected as much, imagine his consternation when he discovers that the other members have equally. complex. issues to deal with. For example, the hyper-aggressive club president Isurugi not only has a violent fear of cats, but also believes herself to be a god! Then there's Yuno, who's terrified of men; the nurse who forces other people to perform cosplay; and Hayama, Sado's best friend and a compulsive cross-dresser, who's also the girl that Sado is infatuated with.

(We did say it was complex, remember?) If you think you've seen EVERYTHING that can happen in an anime, prepare to have your eyes opened to FULL anime size as you enter a whole new paradigm with MM! (it's pronounced "Emu Emu!")!

The extraterrestrial menace known as the Neuroi have returned to Earth, and even a direct hit won't stop these monsters.

Kamisama Kiss - Complete Collection (BD+DVD)
  • Distributor: FUNimation Entertainment Suggested retail price: $54.98

Nanami was just a normal high school girl down on her luck until a stranger's lips marked her as the new Land God and turned her world upside down. Now, she's figuring out the duties of a deity with the help of Tomoe, a reformed fox demon who reluctantly becomes her familiar in a contract sealed with a kiss. The new responsibilities-and boys-are a lot to handle, like the crow demon masquerading as a gorgeous pop idol and the adorable snake spirit who's chosen the newly minted god to be his bride. As the headstrong Tomoe tries to whip her into shape, Nanami finds that love just might have cute, pointed fox ears. With romance in the air, will the human deity be able to prove herself worthy of her new title?

Strike Witches - Complete Collection [S.A.V.E. Edition]
  • Distributor: FUNimation Entertainment
  • Suggested retail price: $24

Meet the girls of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, better known as the Strike Witches. These darlings of the great blue yonder may not have standard issue uniforms, but they do have all the right stuff. Where the average flyboy falters, these dolls blast aliens to bits in the bat of an eyelash. With a little magic and a whole lot of leg, the girls of the 501st are winning the war on pants, and aliens!

Welcome everyone! For those who are new, I do these blogs to show that Anime Vice's community does do recommendations and to get you guys and gals started, too. I take recommendations and post them in a blog. This winter season, it was pretty busy with the Winter Anime 2014 Trailers Guide and the end of 2013 projects. I had tried 4 shows.

No worries, I don't put spoilers. All I'm putting are my experiences and what audiences would these shows appeal to. Feel free to drop a recommendation here or on my list. I would be happy to accept them.

No. 6

Recommended by little sister and her friend

Did a marathon on this show during the first weekend of December with my little sister and her friend. Her friend was the one who recommend From the New World (Shin Sekai Yori). It had the same themes, a utopia that was actually a dystopia. These type of shows pushes the questions about our human nature and differences between the poor & outcast outside the walls and the elites who lived in the walls. I love those type of shows. It illustrates the barriers about the gap between different classes. Your mileage may vary if you hate scenes of a guy kissing another guy. Like Shin Sekai Yori, it has a bit of homosexuality elements with the bromance. The characters and story are pretty linear, but you'll probably like them.

I recommend this show if you are open minded and like shows that explores human nature and its conflicts. There is a bit of gore, but it's not too brutal compared to the From The New World.


Recommended by Supreme Marvel, Acura Max, and Marshal Victory


A year ago, Supreme Marvel and Acura Max recommended this show for me to jump into the Sci-Fi genre. That was after Robotics;Notes. I forgot about the series until we had the Vote for Your Favorite Anime in 2013! project in December 2013. I remembered this show and it was hyped a lot. It was written by Gen Urobuchi, and I did enjoy his works in Fate Zero, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, and Puella Magi Madoka Magica. With Marshal's help, I gave this series a try.

After completing a marathon on HULU, it was on my list of top 2013 anime series. Psycho Pass has a memorable cast, story, and music. Their characters and their struggle to cope with society's use of machines to assess people's place in society. The Sibyl System monitors' folks's Psycho Pass. For folks whose Psycho Pass is cloudy, they wind up in a correctional facility.

I recommend this series to folks who love series that examines human nature and society issues. It makes you question our criminal justice system and their system. Marshal Victory commented that the series is one of the best gateway drug for adults who haven't seen anime yet.

School Days

Recommended by Rachel

I did a marathon on this show back in Veteran's Day weekend with Rachel (alias), my middle school friend who goes to Church. She was the one who recommended the show. At first, the series looked normal until it reached the end with the infamous scene. It was pretty shocking, and the main character deserve it because of how much he change and grew into a jerk in the series. Rachel commented that the series was like a parody SIM games. Showing you the consequences of dating other women and not being honest with others. I later found out School Days was based on a visual novel game. The series did a good job on the Yandere concept.

I recommend this show to folks who have a bit of thick skin. If you're new to anime, don't try this show. Look for a true romantic show.


Indirectly Recommended by Yusuke52, Taichokage, and his folks in the Battle Threads

Back when I was a new mod, I saw a lot of Toriko threads in the battle forums because of Taichokage's Battle Themes. I was curious about the show. When Yusuke52, my teammate, ask me for help on the Toriko project, I decided to give this series a try. I was mostly a Shonen fan when I first started out Anime Vice. The thing with Toriko is that it's an unusual Shonen battle anime series about food. It's like One Piece with the exploration themes and living life to the fullest. Toriko is a kind of man who respect all living beings and only kill animals for sustenance. I enjoy Toriko a lot. I'm only in the Century Soup arc. I haven't watched up to a 100 episodes.

I did an intense analysis for Fairy Tail fans whether they should try One Piece and Toriko: Shonen Experiences: Moving From Fairy Tail to One Piece and Toriko. I'll take some of the points I made for you guys and gals, whether you should try Toriko. I'll highlight some of the stuff that Toriko did well.

  • Short Battles - Thanks to Othus12 for clearing this up. If you hate long battles, Toriko's battles are shorter than Naruto and One Piece's battles.
  • Bromance - With Toriko and Komatsu, there is no shortage of these scenes.
  • Incorporating Dudes in Distress and no fan service - If you're the feminist type, you know a lot of Shonen series has a bit of sexist thing in it. Bleach, Naruto, Fairy Tail, and One Piece has a lot of damsels. Toriko is probably the first Shonen show I saw that went gender reversal. There is no fan service in Toriko. For those who like a bit of T & A, you won't like Toriko. I haven't seen a beach scene, one of those common themes that features fan service in your usual anime.

Your mileage will vary with the anime if you hate censorship. The anime tones down violence (IE: animals eating other animals) and takes out the blood.

Thank you for reading this blog. I hope you try these shows if they are up to your liking.

Welcome everyone! I'm Takashichea, your neighborhood wiki editor. We had another great year in wiki editing. Why I do these archive threads is because I'm a former historian for a club at my university back in 2010. I took pictures of my club and their happiest and proudest moments. My experiences from college are reflected in this community. I want to give recognition to my teammates and everyone. We are the driving force in this community. A majority of the community are wiki editors, either as a hobby, full time, seasonal breaks, etc.

Please give these guys recognition for their hard work this past year. It means a lot to our community.

If I miss you, please tell me. I would love to add you if you committed to a project for a week.

Welcome everyone! Unfortunately, I couldn't complete this report for this week in one sitting, so I'll finish it tomorrow night.

For the manga releases this week, we have a lot. For Shonen fans, we have Bleach, One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, and Toriko. For romance fanatics, we have Devil and Her Love Song, Happy Marriage?!, and Kamisama Kiss. I heard good things about Air Gear. Haven't tried it yet. I have read Ogure Ito's Tenjou Tenge.

I hope you find something you like. Please support the official release if you can. For folks who live in countries that manga and anime are scarce commodities, don't fret. You can support them with the power of wiki editing and having a discussion in Anime Vice.

Sources: All plot summaries and data are from ANN's Manga Releases page. Plus, I stole some English covers from PikaHyper, a great mod from Comic Vine. He probably knows I do.
