Purpose: Inspired by an idea about what poster student that represent our club at school, I wonder what you guys and gals think who represent us, or when you think about Anime Vice, who do you think of.
Back in the old days, I used to hear the names Gia and John Martone echoing throughout the website. A lot of people remember them and say that Anime Vice isn't the same without them. I don't know them, but their incarnations rest with us in the present people we have here representing us.
Anime Vice moves like the river of life. People come and go on this site, and other people are like rocks in the river and will remain here for all time.
I will try to be neutral here. This is just my opinion.
There were a lot of people out there that represent us, and I need to keep this list brief. Sorry about that. Please feel free to comment.
Thanks for stopping by.
Go Anime Vice!
I'm testing the list's features to see it works or not. This is for my team who's working so hard on these franchises. I had writer's block (please see blog) in August, so I used summer school and wiki editing to put off beginner guides.
Now, I have to finish at least two guides before October. Why October? I can't tell you why!
The guides are in reverse order. Shaman King's draft is more complete than the others. I spent too much time on that series, and I think Sket Dance is the easiest one to write about, but I need to funny for that one.
Being Neutral, Funny, and Concise. Due to my wiki editor's roles, I have too much information, so I need to trim it down for the beginner guides.
I wrote some weekly articles on Beelzebub and Blue Exorcist.
Bad News: I have the fall semester already started, so I bit the bullet when I failed to do it during the summer. I'm such a scaredy cat, but the beginner guides need to be good. Can't rush it. Going to get someone to proof read it (Preferably, someone who has not watch these franchises).
Unlike Rave Master and Shaman King, I haven't start this one since my team just formed in late August. It's worth a shot for my team. I just to write better. Wiki editing is different from writing beginner guides.
I'm happy with three characters.
He's the leader in the Sket Dan club. <br> Powers: Concentration mode is where he puts on his goggles to figure out the solution to their requests' problems.
|2. Hime Onizuka|
She's the powerhouse in the Sket Dan club. <br> Powers: Don't be fool by her pretty appearance. Her field hockey stick, Cyclone, can dish a lot of damage such as bringing the down the roof.
|3. Kazuyoshi Usui|
He's the brains in the Sket Dan club. <br> Powers: Even though he uses a laptop to speak, he can gather information quickly and helps his team with his gizmos such as a homing device.
I figure it is more easier to stick a list in a PM. Will finish draft in one week since I promised others that I finished before August in a blog.
I won't fail them now. I just need to finish the verdict and analysis for manga and anime.
|1. Haru Glory|
A teenage boy who becomes the 2nd generation Rave Master, and before leaving Garage Island, he promises his sister that he will come back home after defeating Demon Card and helping Plue to get all the Five Rave stones.
A mysterious girl who has amnesia and a past relating to the Rave stones.
|3. Hamrio Musica|
A Silver Claimer and a thief whose family is massacred by a psychopath seeks the Silver Ray to honor his teacher's will.
A carrot nosed dog who helps Haru track down the Rave Stones.
This is one I struggled with the most. I got too much characters, so I paired them in twos for the shamans and their spirits. Now, I have 10 rows.
What I finished: Characters, Story, and Introduction.
Need to finished: Verdict, Terminology, Conclusion, and perfecting hook.

During wiki editing with my team, I noticed three characters who looked bad ass but not handsome. Later on in the series, their hair goes down, and suddenly, they are quite handsome according to the female characters in their respective franchises.
Beware of Mild spoilers!
He has a crazy pompadour that goes through radical changes when someone cuts his pompadour. First, his pompadour has a heart tip, then it splits into a V-shaped, and it finally returns to a normal pompadour.
Ryu's hair is only down in the manga, volume 14.
His pompadour is like Ryu, but it is shorter, gray, and looks like a duck's butt according to Kanzaki. During the Volleyball practice and games, Yuka and Ryoko accidentally unleash his hidden, handsome potential.
Himekawa's hair is down in Beelzebub 32. I don't have the chapters. (Sorry)
Grevil's pompadour reminds me of a blonde unicorn, but Victorique states that it looks like a drill. You can only see his hair down in his flashback and near the end of the Gosick series.
Please see Gosick episode 11.
If you want to add someone who has not let their pompadour down, feel free to add. We'll see if they are gorgeous or not.
I haven't seen much of them except Bobo-bo, Afro Samurai, and Love Aikawa. I have no idea if it is the same with the Pompadour people. Who knows? If I see a pattern with afros, I'll definitely post a blog about it.
** If you have any hot guys whose pompadours fit these conditions, please feel free to add some. I put it on this post as a commemoration to crazy pompadours on the Crazy Anime Hair concept page.
I'm a noob. I forgot that a forum thread can only posted once and it's stuck there. I wanted to attach it to the characters, but this is what a blog is for.
I want it to connect to more characters if someone wants to add another character who has a crazy pompadour, but after letting his hair down, he looks handsome. It's easier to edit that way. If I ran out of links, I or someone else will make a second blog for it.
I'm so sorry guys and gals.
Added the Afro section when posting this blog.
2-25-12 - I created the Pompadour page because Daniel had some nice silhouette images for Crazy Anime hair and unreal hair colro.
Before I go to school, I just had to report about my team's work, my solo work on Shaman King, Anime Vice's Streamline Initiative, and crazy ideas for blogs.

Members: Auron570, Halberdierv2, Takashichea
My teammates and I are students (most of us are college students) who are very busy. Auron570 and Halberdierv2 already told me about taking a break from wiki editing. It's my fault for starting in July instead of June, but I had a previous project, Rave Master, with Fire_Star. Plus, I think the concept team is adding to much pressure on them.
**Please see Gosick Recognition Blog.
*By the way, Fire_Star and I finished the Rave Master's anime part and its characters last July 2011. We decided to stop after that since there are 30 volumes in the manga portion. It was too much work.
Members: Annabanana, Piface314, Hibaru, and Takashichea
It's the same situation with the Gosick project. It's all right as long we watch each other's back and take turns and dividing up the work.
Legend: P = Plot and SP = Short Plot
*Another wiki editor, Anbumakura, added episodes 6-16. (To give credit)
2. Characters: See Character Vitae List
**Please see Sket Dance Wiki Project Blog.
^Members: Annabanana, Newten, and Takashichea (Team created since July 2011)
***I put down Oct. 2010 because it was the month Anna and I worked on Fairy Tail independently. We met each other with the help of Obscurefan around December 2010.
^Fairy Tail has a bigger team than that. I put down the active members for this semester. If you want to see the whole team, please see the Fairy Tail Recognition Blog, Bounty Hunter Blog, and FoxxFireArt's Community Spotlights.
Team Beelzebub (Anime Only) - July 2011 and a trio was born on Aug. 2011
Members: Annabanana, ShadowKnight508, and Takashichea
Mainly, we are focused on the anime and its characters. Annabanana did work on this series alone until July 2011 where I took over in her absence. Then, along the way, ShadowKnight508 joined in, and Anna return home in August 2011.
Interestingly, I'm partners with Annabanana on many anime/ or manga projects that are listed above.
The only project that Anna and I are alone on this project.
I decided to work on this among the empty pages of my favorite series. During the time, I was disillusioned and wanted to give up. I kept going at a slower pace because I mainly focused working on Fairy Tail with Annabanana and in June, with Fire_Star on Rave Master.
I finished about 43 episodes for the anime and started working volumes 10 to 32. I finished reading series since September 5, 2011. So far, I haved added full plot summaries on volumes 9 to 25. All volumes have table of contents with its characters and other stuff. Volumes 1-8 don't have table of contents, and volumes 1-10 need to be formatted.
Please see Shaman King Historian Project.
I was struggling to shorten/ summarize story arcs for Eleanor Merced and FoxxFireArt's bounty task on Naruto. Naruto's work was the hardest one so far. I couldn't rewrite it without sacrificing information. With FoxxFireArt's advice, I guess I have to delete and rewrite.
*From that point, I contact many wiki editors about condensing their story arcs and stop writing detailed story arcs for the characters.
I know I need to fix Haru Glory, Elie, Hamrio Musica, and many Fairy Tail characters.
Archive - Inspired by Giant Bomb's Archive (History of the Bomb: A Community Project thread) and my recognition blogs for Fairy Tail, Rave Master, Blue Exorcist, and Gosick. Cover some history with wiki editors on this site.
I still hesitate to finish the guides or even to publish them. I have three guides in the rough draft stage. I'm good at characters and story, but I'm not good at writing hooks, intros, and conclusions (or verdicts) despite the fact I asked for help. I need to publish them before October. Otherwise, I did live up to my first year's work at Anime Vice.
Purpose: To get people to watch/ or read Sket Dance or Gintama, to reignite wiki passion in both series, and to get some ideas.
Hello guys. I'm Takashichea, a member of Team Wiki Nation and part of other teams on other franchises as well. Recently, due to a request by Piface314, Team Wiki Nation is created to tackle Sket Dance franchise with three partners, Anna, Piface314, and Hibaru. As I watched the show and did research on the web, I noticed Gintama pops out a lot. I learned that Kenta Shinohara was the assistant to Hideaki Sorachi, author of Gintama.
I haven't watch or read Gintama yet, and I have only watched Sket Dance up to episode 15.
Thank Halberdierv2 for this image.
Characters are the important thing in anime and manga. I put this in a separate section.

Total: Bossun to Gintoki = 3, Hime to Kagura = 2, and Switch to Shinpachi = 1. I don't know much about Switch, and Shinpachi's wikia info is vague.
I will list any changes and suggestions from comments below. I want to see the change and the additions of information.
Thank Mohsinman99 for his contributions.
I will use these thoughts and comments to write for the similarities to other franchises. I used mostly wikia for Gintama to compare my experiences from watching Sket Dance anime. I have no trouble spoiling myself to Gintama during my quick research, but for Sket Dance, I don't read the wiki or other sources. See example below.
See Shaman King franchise for an example. I was proud of this work. It's amazing how Zatch bell and Law of Ueki is similar to Shaman King. I could not relate D. Gray Man or Blue Exorcist to Shaman King more than its use of supernatural and demon themes.
