Finished the Spring 2014 Roundtable. Just need to read it again to proofread after everyone takes a look at it. I will back to update the simulcast and wiki pages. I just ran out of time today due to Church.

Welcome to the Weekly Fairy Tail report! Another week has gone by, and the best way to end a hard week is some good old anime. That's why I enjoy watching Fairy Tail and other shows on Friday.

Plot Summary

The Fairy Tail gang arrive to Crocus with big ambitions of winning the tournament. Little do they know the surprises that lies in store for them.

Watch Fairy Tail legally on Crunchyroll.

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Juvia fans watch out!
Juvia fans watch out!
  • We get more new teams revealing themselves: Quatro Cerberus and Mermaid Heel. Though, we don't see them interacting with anyone.
  • The Fairy Tail gang has some humorous scenes: Juvia with Gray & Lyon and Happy with Frosh & Lector. Erza fans are greeted with some fan service and cute scenes of Erza. Heck, Juvia looks really cute in this episode.
  • The introduction of the new Dragon Slayers, 3rd Generation, is executed well. I hope Natsu and Gajeel fight with Sting and Rogue in the tournament.

Here is some Erza Scarlet shots. Random Curiosity had a big batch of them.

Also, we got nice shots of the new guilds.

Bad

  • It's a slow episode, but the action is going to start next week.

Bizarre

Happy: Talking Cats?!
Happy: Talking Cats?!
  • Lucy thought Wendy was into drug dealing or some illegal activities. I thought it was prostitution but the show is for kids. Don't pay attention to my dirty mind.
  • Ichiya pop in Erza's Jellal fantasy is a great scene.

Overall, this episode is much better than the last few episodes. It's just slow a bit, but it had a lot of new stuff plus silly antics with some mild fan service.

Hey everyone and welcome to the Fairy Tail weekly report! I have to cut this report short since things are getting hectic with school.

Plot

There are only five days left 'til the Grand Magic Games begin, but Natsu and company still aren't ready for it. But then they meet up with Crime Sorciere, a small, independent guild led by an old frenemy. The members of this newish guild promise to help Fairy Tail "power up" in exchange for a favor...

By Crunchyroll

Verdict

Good

Oh Happy, you little troll
Oh Happy, you little troll
  • For you Erza and Jellal fans, this episode is a home run with you guys who support this pair.
  • Little Happy also finds Erza's relationship hilarious. I just enjoy how he trolls Erza like he does with the Fairy Tail crew.
  • We also got a few new characters who appeared, the Raven Tail Guild as well as Jellal's gang making their Time Skip Debut.

Bad

  • Cheaters: Natsu's gang skipped training and took Ultear's Time Ark steroids to get stronger. I wasn't happy with how Hiro Mashima did this. It didn't make a lick of sense when Ultear explains how everyone has a latent magic orb.
  • Like water and fire, those who oppose Erza x Jellal will not find this episode enjoyable.

This episode is a hit or miss with the fans. You'll love it if you enjoy Erza and Jellal as well as little humourous moments with Natsu, Meredy, Juvia, and the gang. For the bad stuff, it was a slow episode with a poor way of having Natsu's crew upped their magic. It's like the Exball element in Edolas where they gained back their magic. It's more interesting to see Fairy Tail struggling and doing something creative to solve their problems instead of just doing the easy way. In Natsu's case, overpowering the enemies by taking magical steroids.

Thanks

Thank you everyone for supporting this franchise. Please support the wiki editors and the project. My teammates are working hard on this wiki project while juggling school, family, and work.

Fall 2012 Anime Discussion Threads

Past Summer 2012 Anime Discussion Threads

Howdy everyone! Welcome to the first part of the Puella Magi Madoka★Magica news blog where I put together lots of old news from Crunchyroll. Given that we have two movies already aired and a third movie coming soon, there is a lot of hype and merchandise involved.

Merchandise

First off, it's the Madoka merchandise. Let's do the figurines and other misc merchandise.

If you're into collecting figurines, the Madoka franchise won't disappoint you.

For prices, check the Good Smile company link for the ultimate Madoka and the regular Madoka Kaname figurine.

Tea Cups and Scooters

In the misc department, we have tea cups and scooters.

The lithium-ion powered scooters cost 134,400 yen (about US$1676) each. Both can go at a max speed of 35 kilometers.

Manga

We got two cool manga spin-off releases in Japan.

Yen Press is the company publishing the new manga titles.

  • Puella Magi Oriko Magica by Kuroe Mura
  • Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice by Masaki Hiramatsu and Takashi Tensugi

Movies

We got cool posters that have amazing back drops of the cities in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and France.

Then, we have back drops of Singapore, Korea, Japan, and US.

Also, we got character posters as well.

Now, we have a special film strip.

This film strip had been auctioned at Yahoo. It was sold at 1,080,001 Yen ($13,620).

Since I'm at school right now, I'll post the hyperlinks for now, and I'll come back and reorganize the links neatly.

Hey everyone! This is a quick glimpse of this week's episode since the Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals anime discussion thread is unfortunately dead. This means that weekly reports are going to be posted instead.

Ep. 29: We're here to Welcome Gaara! / The Ultimate Autumn Diet!

Gaara's on his way to the Leaf Village again, and Team Guy is scrambling to make sure he feels welcome. The girls beg Guy to train them, but their reason is not what it seems.

By Crunchyroll

Ep. 30: Autumn Shinobi Safety Lessons!

With a lot of ninjas getting injured do to carelessness, Lady Tsunade sets out to teach her charges the importance of safety. Lady Tsunade puts Lee and the gang in charge of the village Halloween celebration, but Deidara and Tobi are on hand to show them what real terror is all about.

By Crunchyroll

Good

  • Tobi and Deidara finally made their debut in this spin-off series. I love how their comedic duo still have that old charm.
  • Halloween's scenes with Deidara: It was interesting to see Deidara not Tobi explaining what the hell was Halloween to Rock Lee's gang.
  • Tobi brings some refreshing change to this series. We already seen so much of Rock Lee, Orochimaru, Neji, Hinata, etc. We don't see much bad guys or minor characters like Kiba, Shino, and the others.
  • Mariko Kart Reference: You got to love the Mario Kart reference.

Bad

  • Even Tobi and Deidara are here, their skits are pretty similar to Orochimaru and Kabuto. See the bizarre scene below.
  • Flow of the Episode: I can't remember what particular scenes, but, the events and the skits didn't didn't flow right.

Bizarre

What the hell is?
What the hell is?
  • Like Orochimaru and Kabuto, Kishimoto seems to relish upon his fan's crazy shipping pairs. This time, we got Tobi X Deidara!
  • Cross Dressing Scenes: In addition to Gaara and Tobi's first cross dressing scene, Neji still remains "Queen" of cross dressing.
  • Finally, we get a glimpse of Moe Sakura Haruno. Rock Lee just loves Sakura.
  • I can't seem to figure out what Rock Lee's Halloween costume makes a reference to.

Thank you guys for reading this report. The two episodes are good with some humorous moments.

This is a summary of all the wiki stuff I do across the Whiskey Media sites and one Wikia community.

New Projects

Hey everyone, I can't believe how time flies so fast. After the summer is over, my teammates and I finished most of the summer 2012 anime projects. We only added all of the characters (except for minor characters) and finish all of the episode summaries.

With the fall semester in session, it's going to be hard to manage wiki editing with school work and volunteering at Church and in my community. I tried to only do like 3 hours in the weekend. Somehow, I end up working overtime. I need to improve my time management because I tend to focus on one or two things a day instead of doing rotating from one area to another area.

Magi the Labyrinth of Magic
Magi the Labyrinth of Magic
Solo
Start Date: Oct. 10, 2012
I pick this project from the start because it was Annabanana's favorite manga series. Since she and I had similar tastes in Shonen anime shows, I decided to give the anime a try. Despite the shonen cliches, I got hooked onto the show with its characters and strong themes of slavery and poverty that will pop up frequently.

Roles: Complete episode summaries and adding characters
Btooom!
Btooom!
Solo
Start Date: Oct. 6, 2012
At first, I wanted to avoid watching this series because of the graphic content. Like Deadman Wonderland, Hagure Yusha, and Seikon no Qwaser, I'll end up getting hooked like a moth to a flame. Yeah, I don't know what drives me to work on these pages. It's not the sex or the violence that stimulates me, but it's more about watching the insanity and despair that makes me curious.

Roles: Complete episode summaries and adding characters
Robotic;Notes
Robotic;Notes
Teammate: Acura_Max
Start Date: Oct. 20, 2012
I had no interest in watching this show, and I was picking potential fall anime shows that the folks of Anime will be interested. Learning from my mistakes in the summer season, I noticed some discussion threads are dead while some are not. I know that Stein;Gates was popular in this community, so I open the discussion thread on this one. Along the way, Acura_Max and ElfenLied1012 got me to try this series. Somehow, I like the show because of the two characters that foil each other: Akiho Senomiya and Kaito Yashio.

Roles: Adding Characters.
*I don't think I have time to add summaries with a full plate of projects.

Old and Ongoing Projects

Fairy Tail
Fairy Tail
Teammates: Daniel Newton
Resting Teammates: Annabanana, Wales, Obsidian609, Buhssuht
Start Date: Around November 2010
This is one of my first and biggest wiki project. I love working and watching Fairy Tail, and I'm glad to work with one of the biggest wiki editing in the community. It was awesome when Ethan and FoxxFireArt open a slew of wiki tasks on Fairy Tail back in spring of 2011, and Anna, Wales, Buhssuht, and I just finished them in a day.

Roles: I still recall the old days. Now, I'm working with Daniel on the anime and keeping it updated.
Please see Wiki Project -- Fairy Tail and Fairy Tail Recognition Blogs for Animevice users
Sket Dance
Sket Dance
Resting Teammates: Annabanana, KuroNekoXIII, MohsinMan99, HalberdierV2, Piface314, Hibaru

Start Date: August 18, 2011
Piface314 invited Annabanana and I to try the show. When we got hooked on the show, I started the first weekly reports in order to boost discussion and spotlight the wiki work that my teammates do. Along the way, KuroNekoXIII and MohsinMan99 join the team. Geo came back and wrote news on the show. It was a fantastic experience, and I enjoyed working on this series with my teammates.

Roles: With the anime gone, I'm not working on it as hard as I used to be. I'm just cleaning up the formatting.
Please see Team W.I.K.I. Nation's Mega Updates on Sket Dance Sept-Oct 2011 to learn about my teammates.
Sword Art Online Season 2
Sword Art Online Season 2
Solo
Start Date: July 16, 2012
This is one of the newest shows I work on since the summer 2012 and the only one that is running. Ever since I saw the trailer, I was so hyped up to watch the show. It's one of the best shows I watch in the summer along with Binbogami Ga and Humanity Has Declined. I enjoy watching and discussing with the good folks here in Anime Vice.

Even this is a solo project, I had some help from Sonata who got some nice default images and Daniel who helped me on the main anime page and format the episode pages. AnimeReviewDaily worked on Kirito and the main anime page. Buhssuht helped me out on the franchise page.

Roles: Adding episode summaries and characters.

Giant Bomb

Independent Wiki Editors: Hailinel, Chalphy, and Video_Game_King

See Fire Emblem Community and the Unofficial Fire Emblem Fan Club

Start Date: December 2010?

I used to work on Fire Emblem characters, but I didn't have enough time to gather notes from Serenes Forest, Fire Emblem Wikia, and Youtube Videos. The challenge with these characters is compiling an article on their back story, dialogue, stats, and anything I can find. Right now, I'm just adding video games from Japan that were influenced or spawn the anime series that I worked on.

Examples: Alice in the Country of Hearts, La Storia della Arcana Famiglia, Guilty Crown: Lost Xmas, and Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment.

Screened

I'm just adding episodes and quotes for my favorite TV shows: Supernatural and Raising Hope. Don't have time to do full plot summaries like I do at Anime Vice.

Comic Vine

Start Date: Oct. 17, 2012

I first came to Comic Vine after clicking on the news articles on the bottom of Anime Vice's website. That was a year ago. I didn't know Comic Vine had Japanese manga until I stumbled upon FoxxFireArt's blog about having a staff writer focusing on manga. Over there, I was introduced to another awesome wiki editor, PikaHyper. The man had an ambition to expand on the foreign comic database and adding more manga titles than Anime Vice. It made me work in Comic Vine.

While I was working on the manga pages, PikaHyper helped me lot in Comic Vine with the wiki style and the rules. I added manga volumes from Anime Vice and adding manga volumes from Comic Vine to Anime Vice. Usually, I concentrate my work on a few projects, and I don't create a lot of different series that I'm not familiar with. His ambitions changed my wiki outlook, and I'm adding new titles either from Quick Picks or CV for the sake of expanding the database.

I hoping that the work on foreign comics that PikaHyper and everyone else did can bridge the gap between Comic Vine and Anime Vice and increase wiki editing in both communities as well.

Sket Dance Wikia

Teammates: Balthierfan, Utipintar, Lynxian (Admin)

Start Date: February 2, 2012

Became an admin on April 24, 2012. It's the same situation in the Sket Dance project for Anime Vice. Unlike Anime Vice, I have to check the community every day because the new and anonymous editors tend to mess up due to not reading the rules. I help them and fix any mistakes. Plus, there are spammers who attack the pages occasionally. Ever since the Sket Dance anime has ended, my gears are slow, but I still continue to work on the characters a bit and watching the wikia activity.
