#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Parasyte: The Maxim Discussion

This episode made me laugh because of the faces. I know how dark this series is. I haven't had fun with this show.

The altruism and animal behavior science lecture was interesting. My inner geek just loved it.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Death Parade Discussion

@Wraith:

I'm from the Theravada Buddhism. To the monks, reincarnation is hell. They want to stop the cycle and reached Nirvana. For the folks who aren't monks, we want to reincarnate to anything that isn't lower than a human being.

Void seems like limbo to me where you can enter the afterlife and get reincarnated. I'm not sure. I found the void to be more cruel punishment for your soul than reincarnation.

General Discussion » Feats of the Week

@FormerCrimsonKing:

My apologies, I talked with my fellow mods. I made a mistake on my end. It was quite similar to the Facts and Feats project started by sickVisionz. I'll link your thread on that archive thread. Sorry about that.

Fan-Fic » Vote For Your Favorite Fan Fic Writer in 2014

My apologies for being late. Being only a wiki mod, this is out of my jurisdiction and territory. I'll do it because every part of Anime Vice is important. If anyone wants to take over this project or promotes the fan fic community, please let me know.

Plus, the momentum in the fan fic forum has fiery passion in these past few months. I thought up ways to improve after the Anime Vice's Best Fan Fic Writers of 2013. Being a small but close knit community, it's a challenge to get folks to vote. I created categories, hoping it might help.

The overall purpose of this thread is to promote the fan fic writers and their work. That's my main objective.

Categories

Here are the categories:

  • Best Crossover
  • Fun
  • Innovative

Please suggest more. I couldn't think of anything else.

I had thought of these categories (original, crossover, and role play), but I felt the categories didn't have an even amount of writers. It wouldn't be fair.

Rules

The only rule is that you can vote for any fan fic writer and their thread that was posted in 2014. I had list most of them in the section below except for folks who only made an announcement type thread.

Fan Fic Writers

Here are the 2014 fan fic stories for you guys and gals to check out of whatever attracts your attention.

General Discussion » Best Anime/Manga Couples Tournament Nominations Thread

@taichokage:

I remembered from our Naruto Discussion Roundtable. You had no support for anyone. UsaChan and I were pretty enthusiastic. Was shocked Toriko had a canon pairing back before this tournament started. Toriko sounds like Goku. Not much passionate love from those guys towards their honey.

General Discussion » Best Anime/Manga Couples Tournament Nominations Thread

This was a tough tournament. I didn't want to cheat and look up on the web. Just went through all the shows I watched. The only one I left was Vampire Knight. It's because I didn't finish the manga. Didn't know who Yuki ended up with.

Looking at the roster, it's pretty diverse. Awesome job everyone! This is going to be fun.

Battles » Ban vs Deadpool (Earth-616)

@EG_Sage said:

Ban wins, but if Deadpool has the Carbonadium blade then he would have the chance to win since it can nullify healing factors.Even with the blade it would we 60:40 for Ban, because of his other abilities.

The only restrictions in this match was toon force because it's a banned element in this forum. I had the conditions ambiguous to make it more fair. Anything's allowed in Deadpool or Ban's arsenal. However, I think I underestimated Ban's abilities.

I remember that weapon when looking up Deadpool. Thanks for bringing up that strategy.

@DBZ_universe said:

This match will change in the future in a STOMP in favor of Deadpool. In the future Marvel is gonna give him the Infinite Gauntlet.

But also later down the road Marvel is gonna kill Deadpool in a way it will make sense. Kinda sucks. But the guy will be back.

That is something about comics i have never understood; they keep revealing all this spoilers about upcoming issues. Why not leave information like that as a surprise?

I'm in the same boat. I watch IGN's Youtube channel a lot. I saw news reporting on Wolverine's death and now, Deadpool's death. I find the suspense to be taken away from readers. I assumed it's part of marketing strategy to boost comic sales.

Don't take my words though. I'm not much of a comic book person. Haven't seen much of the comic book culture and industry since I'm still new to it.

Just adding more to what folks said:

While Doraemon isn't as popular in America, it's a well known character in Asia, being Japan's cultural representative.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » The Testament of Sister New Devil Discussion

@LHWKnight:

I watched the 2nd episode. Where did you get the idea that Basara likes butts? The opening song does emphasize butts. That's the only thing I notice. One lesson here is don't let a succubus do magic spells.

@Marshal Victory:

Tsundere does swing both ways. The girl (sometimes dudes are tsunderes) act cold or belligerent with you and then, they act sweet with you another moment. Yes, it's sort of like bipolar's mood swings.

The light beams are fun.

  • Blood Lad - comedy
  • Rurouni Kenshin - historical fiction
  • Beelzebub - action, comedy
  • Gintama - slapstick, action, parody

Do you like other genres besides Shonen?
