Hello everyone, this blog has two binary purposes. One to show off our image galleries and Two, to post a checklist for wiki editors. I am currently cleaning out images for the Fate wiki project. I'm removing Official Art and replacing it with Anime Art that has clear definitions of what goes in there. For more information, please check the Fate/stay Night, Fate/kaleid, and Fate/zero Image Gallery Updates and Wiki Editing 101: Naming Image Galleries and Organizing Images threads.
Some of these cross into Megami's Magazine.
Most of these are from Saber because I haven't started cleaning in the other galleries besides Saber's today.
I have to add these to Megami gallery.
Same for these ones:
According to Twitter and the official site, there was an announcement for Triage X's anime adaptation. One of the visuals (below) was revealed at the "Fantasia Bunko 2014 Dai Kanshasai" event, which was held at Bellesalle Akihabara in Tokyo back on Dec. 6, 2014. Currently, the manga for Triage X is on hiatus.
When spring 2015 comes, a discussion thread with trailers will be posted by BigHeart711, Acura Max, or myself, the AV team in charge of the seasonal trailers.
As part of the 15th anniversary celebration of One Piece, Fuji TV announced that they will air the 2014 edition of the 2008 film One Piece: Episode of Chopper + Fuyu ni Saku, Kiseki no Sakura (Bloom in the Winter, Miracle Cherry Blossom) at 9:00 pm on December 31, 2014 with new epilogue.

Also in the ending, the members of The Straw Hat Pirates will convey special messages to the fans with their feelings of gratitude for the 15th anniversary.

Students transfer out of his school without any notice, and Hiroshi's next door neighbor Isuzu, who seems quite infatuated with him, warns him to stay away from the old part of town. The upcoming Haasaku Festival, which celebrates the town's unique oranges, seems to be generating an unusual level of concern, and groups of masked people roam the streets by night, hunting... something. Could the legends of man-sized wolves roaming the mountains surrounding Jouga be real? Who is the girl with the scythe? What is the real purpose of the festival?

Hello everyone! I'm Taka, your wiki mod who writes these blogs to highlight and promote user achievements, minor or major. This blog is a supplement to FoxxFireArt's community spotlight. I try to show what our community is about. We are a diverse group of folks tied with one major interest, anime. Let's celebrate our achievements. I hope you visit the links I listed in the blog.
It makes people's days when you give them recognitions.
Note: This blog is in construction. I'll try to update and complete it as much as I can. If I miss anything or make a mistake, please let me know.
I could not remember what was the actual battle trends in November. December seems to have a diverse theme for battles.
In the middle of December, we had a spike in Yhwach battle threads.
We have one new wiki editor passing 1,000 wiki points, SSJjanemba. He was a devoted DBZ wiki editor. Congrats to him for doing a good job as well as cleaning up Frieza's page. His Frieza work got spotlighted in the Community Spotlight!
In December, Sonneko had reached over 1,000 wiki points on Dec. 19 after working hard on Genos and Bambina wiki pages.
I moderate wiki pages on a daily basis. I have the pleasure of meeting new folks. I hope they enjoy wiki editing and helping the site.
What's our hottest discussion threads in anime? I didn't include manga since only Toriko Manga Discussion has been active.
I'm pretty shocked out of the older anime discussion threads. Sword Art Online has an astounding 59,000 views. For 2 cour series, Akame ga Kill is very popular with the most comments (2nd to Sword Art Online) and the most views of its category.
