Hello everyone! It's the first weekend of October and the start of the Fall 2013 season. I'm doing this to promote the discussion threads in the #Anime Vice Discussion Threads forum. This is a quick run down on some of the shows. Check out the other folks' impressions of the fall in the community. I'm sure DocHaus, Marshal Victory, Auron570, BigHeart711, and others provide a different and more thoughtful insight than me.
I'm Taka, a wiki editor here who finished the Fall Anime 2013 Trailers Guide with my teammates. What's left is to enjoy the anime series this fall if we can. Here are the series I'm continuing to watch. After this weekend, I won't try anymore new shows except the ones that are on my to watch list. I got to focus on school and wiki work.
Please join in the discussion threads. Thank you for reading.
Don't worry, I didn't put any spoilers just general descriptions and impressions.
I forgot to put Magi. It's a Shonen series that Anna and I loved. The manga did far better than the anime, but I'm continuing thru season 2. I have hopes that the anime will reach its potential.
|Kuroko's Basketball 2|
I did marathon the first season during summer with 2 episodes a week since I had summer school at the time. I thought I wouldn't like this show because I'm not a sports person. The reason I tried it was that an old friend of mine, KuroNekoXIII, recommended the show. I was surprised the show got me hooked. It's all because of the characters and their quirks that made the show enjoyable.
|Kill la Kill|
After finishing Gurren Lagann back in June 2013 for the first time, I was blown away by the show. When I heard a few of the same folks who did Gurren Lagann are doing a new show with Trigger, I thought this show would be highly anticipated show for this season. First episode was pretty weird. It was fast paced with goofy animations. It didn't wow me much like Gurren Lagann did. It's more comedy oriented. GL's 1st episode build the world, the dreams, and tied it with a memorable quote. In terms of fan service, Kill la Kill was surprisingly low. No Gainax Bounce had occurred.
|Valvrave the Liberator 2|
It hasn't aired yet. When Acura got me into this show, I didn't expect it hooked me after a generic first episode for a mech series. The ending of the pilot episode was unexpected. From that point, Valvrave had continued to surprised me without any logic whatsoever. It keeps me guessing. Plus, it had controversial scenes like Guilty Crown did.
|Wanna Be the Strongest in the World!|
One of the guilty pleasure shows for this fall. I admit I was attracted to it because of the fan service. Plus, it reminded of an erotic manga that deals with female wrestling. The first episode was good because I loved the drive in Sakura, the main character, had when she wanted to fight back after her idol group gets dissed.
|Walkure Romanze: Shojo Kishi Monogatari|
Another guilty pleasure show that I tried because it was made by Ricotta, a company that made Princess Lover. It was a generic harem show with a ditzy pink haired character and an ordinary hero. I'm glad the main character isn't wimpy or too perverted. It felt strange when the harem show centered on Mio instead of Takahiro.
|Strike the Blood|
The first episode gives the show a generic feeling. I wanted to tried it because of the trailer. I'm somewhat interested in the show due to Kojo's past.
For the show, I'm predicting it will end with romance because it's like this: boy gets girl as a bodyguard, boy and girl fall in love with each other thru conflict, and the one of two will sacrifice themselves to save the other.
|Nagi no Asukara|
Normally, I'm a Shonen and comedy fan. I don't usually watch slice of life shows. My first one was Sket Dance, but I don't count it as my first because Sket Dance is more gag comedy. Tari Tari was my 2nd slice of life but my first true slice of life.
Given that, I tried this show because the animation and art style remind me of Tari Tari in a sense. I loved the animation. It's gorgeous when you see the reflection of the water and the scenery. The episode made me chuckle a few times. I see a love triangle forming. I'm interested in the show because it portrays another side: tension between two races: humans who live on land and humans who live under the sea.
Dropped after the first episode. It reminded me of The Devil is a Part-Timer! except it's the heroes who are working. For me, it was too much fan service with the Gainaxing. It was all forced out.
A reverse harem series that I wanted to see if it was a good show in that genre. It's trashy. I actually laughed in the first episode because it wasn't like the usual reverse harem series. I never seen a show where the heroes abused the main heroine. I thought I will enjoy it as a guilty pleasure show. After the 2nd and 3rd episode, I got bored of it because it did the same thing except different guys take turns abusing the heroine.
Acura's comments about a sister eating her brother's flesh in the Pupa discussion thread made me curious. With October 31st approaching, it's the only horror show in the fall.
|IS <Infinite Stratos>|
Sotyfan16 recommended the first season to me way back then. I have been meaning to try this show for a while. Since summer 2013, I only watched the first 5 shows. It's a generic harem show, but I enjoyed it so far. The main character is weak and somewhat clueless but he has potential. The heroines are unique and stand out. Though, if I remember correctly, there are two childhood friends. I'm confused that the main character had forgotten one of them. It's like Oreshura again except with mechs.
The trailer made me interested in this show. It reminded me of Spirited Away.
Hello everyone, I was talking with Kurt about this new company that launched on the same day when Crunchyroll release its French website. Right now, I'm running out of time, so I'll leave some information from you and some news articles. I will expand this article soon.
I posted a snapshot of their lineup. Though, I did miss some shows. You can see them all on the website. Here's the link.
“WAKANIM is a French internet broadcaster for Japanese animation, which has been doing simulcasts for four years now,” Cervantès says. “We have a business model which is quite different from overseas markets. All the episode are free to watch for one month, financed with advertising – there is less than one minute of advertising per episode. We also sell a premium service, which includes both rental - streaming for 30 days - and download to own. Download to own is important for us, as I think we were the first company in Europe to offer anime with no DRM (Digital Rights Management) restrictions on a file. Basically we offer files that can be read everywhere, permanently, without installing software or being connected to the internet.”
Regarding the site's streaming, Cervantès says, “We are using Internap, a very strong Content Delivery Network partner in the UK, to provide the fastest stream possible. We will provide both SD and HD for the free content. For premium users, we are offering the best HD quality on the market.”
On Wakanim's history in France, Cervantès says, “Wakanim is a service which was built from nothing four years ago. We just had a contract for one title and constructed everything from scratch, each title allowing us to buy another one. Today in France we have five to six simulcasts each season, including titles such as Attack on Titan and Sword Art Online. We retain titles, with 35 on the French site at present.”
Andrew Partridge, the founder of Anime Limited, adds, “Wakanim's concept is simple and efficient. To truly engage with fans with legal simulcasts, you need to offer a service that's comparable with less legitimate ones. That's something current services don't capture - they're not aiming at that market, and that's something Wakanim can provide. Often, subscription models run on quantity over quality. I would rather provide a quality service and focus on bringing people great shows. Anime Limited will be working both with domestic licensees and Japanese rights holders to bring the best content to Wakanim each season.”
Partridge adds, “I respect what subscription model services like Crunchyroll do and believe there's a great place for them too. I view Wakanim as kind of a neat alternative option for fans. I'd love people to come see what it's all about at MCM Expo in October. We'll have some very neat giveaways at the All the Anime stand including A2 posters for those who like our Facebook and showcase the shows which we're simulcasting - we've a few more surprises to come too.”
Partidge and Cervantès both stress that wakanim.co.uk will not compete with the anime DVD/Blu-ray markets. 'Digital should not be an excuse for acquisition of all rights - it should be a support to the original creators in Japan to promote their work,” says Partridge.
The French simulcast company just obtained licensing rights to the followings shows:
|Kill la Kill - Their first simulcast|
Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She's looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman's identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special "goku uniform," and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.
Based on a poll my teammate conducted, these the series that the community has a strong interest in. If there is a series that you want to work on, feel free to suggest.
Basically, this is just focusing on the anime series page. Here is the basic format. If you need help, just leave a comment or PM me.
See Attack on Titan for an example.

Welcome everyone! It's hard to believe that 3 years has passed.
Yes, I have crappy banner skills because I tried cramming every anime show I worked on in this community for the past 3 years.
Since I was too busy with the Fall 2013 Guide and preparing discussion threads and school, I don't have anything written down. I'll make this short.
I never thought I would commit so much to this community all this time. It all started when I found this site after surfing Google for Fairy Tail. Soon enough, I got addicted to wiki, and I was drawn towards the editors on Fairy Tail. If it wasn't for Anime Vice, I wouldn't have tried and experienced a lot of different anime and manga series. In 2012, BigHeart711 and I started the trailer project when the staff was disappearing one by one. In that year, I started branching out of Anime Vice and explored the sister sites: Giant Bomb, Comic Vine, and Screened. I even went into the Animanga Wikia sites to learn how they operate. Hoping I pick up stuff that would help Anime Vice. All these years, I worked the wiki pages and other projects to promote the community, make it better than ever. Folks come and go. I never forget them.
Since I know a lot of folks and named them in the first anniversary blog, I'm going to make this list short
Since I'm rushing this, I will miss some stuff.
With BigHeart711 and Acura Max's help, we did 7 seasons worth of anime trailers.
Thank you for reading. I hope you guys and gals will help improve the community by participating in the discussions and contributing to the wiki. If you need help, I'll be there.
|1. Fairy Tail|
October of 2010 to May 2011 (now) The first anime I tackled when I joined Animevice. It was interesting because I watch Fairy Tail and was looking for more info. This is why I found and Animevice. I made friends with Annabanana, Obscurefan, and Obsidian609. I'm lucky to be a part of this Animevice team. Currently doing on the weekends but most of my work is on episode summaries and captioning images. See recognition blog and my statue quo. The roles I did was image hunting (helping Annabanana, Obscurefan by finding images) and captioning images. I helped fill in some of the episodes and work on minor characters such as Vulcan. <br> OVA: Spring of 2011 (Can't remember exact date) - Anna and I finished the 1st episode. For the 2nd episode, we got references but not the plot summary. The 3rd episode needs work.
I remember Anna working on it during Spring 2011, and it was because of her that I watched it and loved it. I was busy and couldn't help her while I was working on Shaman King (alone) and working with her on Fairy Tail. I made a bold decision to help her when she was absent for three weeks (July 17-Aug 12). Eventually, ShadowKnight508 appear and help us.
