Finish securing a new source of caps for Rage of Bahamut. Still can't find End Cards. Since I came home late from school, I ran out of time to do my weekly episode pages. Thurs will be catch up day. PM me if you need me.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Seven Deadly Sins (Anime)

I do remember you linked to one of the sites with a view meter. Some of them were high. I didn't expect the series to rival the bigger series (do you mean One Piece or the shows this season) in terms of view.

The discussion thread is quiet for our community due to legal simulcast issues and folks who watched it but don't check here often.

S10Ep3:

That was fast. They clean Dean's system except for the Mark of Cain. And Castiel's condition is temporarily fixed. Lots of temporarily fixed issues we had.

Demons sure know how to piss folks off. Deanmon was relentless. Didn't expect Sam was part of the husband's revenge quest at his wife case.

@Vapovile:

The way he wrote was a bit confusing and can give a false impression on other communities. If you are promoting a community, you have do it clearly. If you are going mention other communities, you have to be mention them on an equal level.

We are not the Batlte Forums comparing characters from existing series to create debates that boil down to one's opinion (No one cares if Enel could beat Ace or Naruto could run a gauntlet of Toriko characters) instead we make those characters and have them fight comparing each other strength and weaknesses.

That's why I mention if he didn't like something, he could just say it that way instead of nobody cares for a particular task in another community. You are going to offend someone unintentionally.

As for the new users, I was confused on what rules he mentioned and what barriers they had. All I know is that battle users historically have hindrances in getting accepted into the community. RPGing is more long term and invested than casual. With our demographics high school to college, most of our folks are short term because that phase has so much change. You rarely get long term users. Wiki editing and battle community are more open than the RPG community as it seems because anyone can jump in easily and quit without so much effort. Only a few rules, you don't have to be an expert in grammar/HTML coding or debating.

There is more to wiki editing than cataloging information and summarizing pages. Our community is built with wiki pages, so you can attach lists, reviews, blogs, etc. It serves as a foundation, not an attachment. The images with captions are one of the most frequent attractions in the wiki community, attracting new users which is where most of our users come from, browsing images or wiki pages.For the battle community, it's introducing new anime and manga with the debates.

Each community has their purpose which contributes to the overall community: finding a place with fans who love anime and manga.

To some others, it looks daunting to enter the RPG community. The same could be said for wiki community and battle community. Everything can be daunting to new users. Some get into other communities easily while others cannot. That's the reality there. That's why some communities have more users and resources than others.

Case Closed » Where do I start ?

@ownagepants:

I'm not an expert, but I did watch a few episodes. All the episodes are somewhat episodic. There are important ones that advance the plot. I would say the episodes with Black Organization and ones that introduce key characters such as Sonoko, Haibara, Hattori, for the first time. After getting through 129, I think you have a good grasp of what the series is about.

I know it's daunting. For One Piece, I marathon the whole anime except for fillers. For Case Closed, I watch mostly season 1-4 because the TV channel only did those seasons.

1st and 2nd season have a lot of important character introductory episodes.

These are the original Japanese episode list. The American version change the listing a bit.

  • 1
  • 6 - Sonoko
  • 13
  • 20
  • 33 - Eri Kisaki
  • 43 - Conan's father and mother
  • 48-49 - Hattori Introduction
  • 27-28 - Kagoro Class Reunion
  • 96 - Conan's parents special
  • 128
  • 129 - Haibara Introduction

There is a helpful guide here. Just focus on the episodes that deal with main character development if you like. All cases are pretty episodic. It's monster of the week theme only with cases.

@Lobos_Del_Rayo:

I'm confused about your outlook on the whole site and then, your stance on being strict on letting new people in. We only met 2 or 3 times. I thought you posted something in regards to the Invisible Walls in Anime Vice. Someone, I can't remember it was you, shared how the RPG community was stigmatized. An RPG user told me folks call out the RPG forum for pretend gaming. I wish I knew where the user posted to give more context. In my original thread, I wrote down the battle forum was the most attacked community by groups in Anime Vice and outside of Anime Vice. That was my experience after trying keep the peace in a community I didn't know a year ago. So much has changed to this day.

Not that I'm accusing you. I'm confused why you had to mentioned the RPG forum is not the battle forums or wiki editing community. I don't see where is that coming from especially wiki editing. There is not much mistaken identity for communities. You guys have a forum of your own. Wiki editors have none. You can say Editing & Tools are somewhat, but that's for the whole community. I assume you don't enjoy debating in the battle forums or wiki editing. I don't enjoy debating in battle forums, but I love wiki editing. We all have our own preferences.

Reinforcing the pride and building the identity of the RPG from your POV was your main argument in this thread. I think you can hit the other communities unintentionally.

I never understood why folks of anime and video games attack each other, and then seeing groups of anime interests going against each other. I guess it's rooted in human nature. We feel more prideful of where we belong and we defend each out of mutual respect or love.

All communities share one aspect: being tight knit, secluded, and love anime and manga. I would argue all communities are tight knit and segregated.

If I wasn't a mod, I wouldn't venture into the battle forums, rpg, or any of the forums. I didn't visit the forums often during my 2 years in Anime Vice until I had a purpose, making trailer threads because we had no staff doing videos.

I wouldn't meet any of your guys or push guys to promote their community in the forums or on the front page.

@Marshal Victory:

You're right. I'm hooked on this series by the 3rd episode. Didn't expect our fallen knight to accept a loli zombie gal.

Oh, this show has end cards. Too bad, I can't get good snapshots on HULU or FUNimation.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Donten ni Warau Discussion

The Meiji Restoration is a popular theme for samurai based anime series. The samurai class was being abolished, and of course, Samurai didn't like that. The change in government and social class system can give lots of ideas for anime series. Rurouni Kenshin was one of the successful series that portrays Meiji Era.

Episode 2 is a bit of world building and character building. Set the goal: to protect the Orochi vessel. Sora is left in the dark about his brother. I expect brotherly tensions and a clash of ideologies later on in the series.

Looking forward to it.

Episode 2 was fun. Almost had a rape scene. Good thing, it didn't happen. Looks like our maid has a thing for Tigre. Wished we had some action. Show keeps teasing the fans with some weird combat dress scene and an almost close rape scene of the poor maid.

Episode 3 was fun. Didn't think Akari was into naughty stuff.

Oh no, Shin and Alberic are in the forces of evil. Got to learn who beheaded Chaika, Heartgen or Hardgen? I think those purple twins are Chaika even though they don't have a broken speech pattern or thick eyebrows. Looks like we need to fix our Chaika criteria once more!

@Jgames:

I think cutting one's hair is more of severing ties to nobility and status.

  • In Avatar, Zuko and Iroh cut their hair off when they became persecuted by the Fire Nation.
  • Samurai after the Meiji Restoration cut their hair tops when they lost their status as a class.

Battles » Mismatch Center: Run by Battle Veterans!

Looks like our folks need to brainstorm good battle threads for Get Backers after I locked two threads.

If anyone knows good franchises, let me know.

I'll update the OP and maybe make a table for franchises.

Example:

FranchiseGood MatchBad Match
TorikoNarutoFairy Tail
Zatch Bell

Just tossing some ideas.

@Falbium_Asmodeus:

Must be a busy day. I was about to log off. Thanks.

@Loki_D:

As a general rule of thumb, we do allow folks in our community to bump old battle threads as long as they are fair matches and not one sided or violate our current battle rules.

Thank you.

If you need to post a scan and can't do it because of mobile devices, you can call me. I'll do it for you. Or you can place a request at the Taka's Request Blog.

No worries, we all make mistakes. Plus, this site isn't friendly to mobile devices.

@Mr_Abernathy:

If you are talking about one certain topic that we have in our wiki database, it goes in that forum, One-Punch Man. Just Manga is a forum for multiple manga series or a subject that covers various manga series.

You can also ask the question to get more feedback at the One-Punch Man Discussion (Manga).

Hope that helps you.

Demonbane » Can anyone tell me what Demonbane is?

@SaiyanPrinceVegetaII:

And also where I can watch/read it

In Anime Vice, if you are asking where to watch or read, the community can only offer you legal streaming sites. Luckily, I check Crunchyroll, and it has it. You have to check if it's in your territory.

Territories: North America, South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Middle East and Africa.

Via ANN.

Also, this doesn't belong in the general discussion. It goes in the Demonbane franchise forum.
