@whiskers:

I guess they had budget cuts for the visual novel. I never played them. I heard some visual novels mostly have text and music, no character voices. Hopefully, we get to Clear's face under that gas mask.

Too bad, we don't get to see Nagisa's home or family. Good to see some development on Nagisa's character.

That's great to hear that the anime did something special and not be restricted by the visual novel.

Editing & Tools » Major Wiki Proposal: Omnibus

@Yusuke52 said:

My question is would having these as separate pages really negatively impact the site or the wiki portion of it?

Good question, no it doesn't impact the site. It's not a necessary, must have thing. I feel like it can be optional. Folks can add it. Right now, that page you pointed out is one of the few omnibuses in the site. I figure we should let folks add omnibuses especially special cases where the American version only consists of omnibuses.

@Bigheart711:

Yes, maybe including a new section in the Wiki Style Guide would better. I experimented in Vinland Saga a bit.

@LHWKnight:

It was funny and great, but it was a bit too mean and traumatizing to the girls especially Kuzuha. Fate Kaleid doesn't do that stuff. It's still innocent bit tricky loli fun.

Editing & Tools » Major Wiki Proposal: Omnibus

Before I was a wiki mod, BigHeart711 and I worked on the Quick Picks project, where we list off American manga and anime releases weekly. We encounter lots of omnibuses when we were working. An omnibus collects more than one tankobon. We ask the wiki mods what to do with Omnibuses. It was a mixed consensus. Other wiki mods said it depends on the localization and key events such as Tokyo Pop's bankruptcy. Generally, we were told not to add them since it's basically the same thing just packaged differently.

However, as I continued work over the years and work at Comic Vine occasionally. Over there, they add omnibus as separate wiki pages as well as different countries' variations of manga. I won't push the international covers as separate entity. I still believe American, Japanese, Spanish, and other international covers should share the same manga wiki page. For omnibuses, it's becoming an issue for me. I'm starting to think they deserve their own page for all of them or for special cases.

A special case would be Vinland Saga. Kodansha USA only releases hard cover editions that has two tankobon volumes.

I want to add the chapter listing, release dates, and other information that readers would find useful from our wiki pages. Where would we put the information if we cannot have a separate wiki page?

Kodansha USA Hard CoversChapter Listings
Vinland Saga Book 4
Vinland Saga Book 4
Chapter 43: The Prince Returns - Pg. 43
Chapter 44: The Curse of the Crown - Pg. 33
Chapter 45: His Last Friend - Pg. 59
Chapter 46: Two Lone Wolves - Pg. 101
Chapter 47: The Hero is Gone - Pg. 125
Chapter 48: Reunion - Pg. 155
Chapter 49: Karlsefni - Pg. 183
Chapter 50: Plot - Pg. 213
Chapter 51: Miscalculation - Pg. 229
Chapter 52: The Hero Returns - Pg. 257
Chapter 53: The Fury of Britannica's King - Pg. 291
Chapter 54: The End of Prologue - Pg. 315
Chapter 55: Slave - Pg. 353
Chapter 56: Ketil's Farm - Pg. 387
Translation Notes - Pg. 420
Bonus Story: For Our Farewell is Near, Part 4 - Pg. 422
Ask Yukimura - Pg. 432

Please let me know what you guys and gals feel about this issue.

Should we add omnibuses to our wiki databases as separate pages?

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! Discussion

@LHWKnight:

I know I have bad memory due to stress, but this show didn't mention they were in elementary school.

Illya (Illyasviel von Einzbern) is a typical young girl attending Homurabara Academy who just happens to have a slight crush on her brother-in-law. Then, one night, a magic wand called Magical Ruby falls from the sky into her bath and tricks her into signing a contract...

The summary doesn't specify what kind of school they had. Last season, I had the same questions about the age. I find the girls cute. That's it. I don't mind the bath, fan service. The only fan service that turns me off would be wet sporting and incest situations such as Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero and Recently, My Sister is Unusual.

Well, I finally learn how old Illya and her classmates are, 10 years old. I already felt shameful, but I thought they were in middle school. It's pretty crazy to see the lolis in such tricky situations. I wonder how old Shirou, Rin, and Luvia is.

@Bigheart711:

As soon as I finish up Quick Picks and the other projects (Fairy Tail and Akame ga Kill), I'll help add the rest of the characters to RWBY since Tom reviewed the show. I better prepare the page. Just to let you know, partner.

Just wanted to let you know, there's a club for this thread rather than discussion. It still serves the same purpose in case Tom or Matt doesn't review the series any further than the pilot episode.

Saw this on ANN. It's pretty horrible to hear someone getting assaulted at a comic convention:

San Diego Police Arrest 29-Year-Old Male in Alleged Assault on Comic-Con Cosplayer

Teenage victim was found bleeding and unconscious on Sunday morning

San Diego Harbor Police stated they have arrested a 29-year-old Justin Kalior on Sunday in the alleged assault of a 17-year-old cosplayer at San Diego's Comic-Con International event. Kalior is being charged with "sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor."

The cosplayer, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, was found unconscious, beaten, and bleeding near the Marriott Marquis and Marina pool by the San Diego Convention Center around 1:00 a.m. Sunday, according to police Sgt. Todd Rakos. Her mother stated that the attack happened on her daughter's birthday, and her first visit to the event. She was taken to the hospital for treatment.

“My daughter was great about checking in all day with me with her phone and when I lost contact with her I kept trying to contact her and I knew something was wrong,” the victim's mother said.

Mixed reports state the girl was suffering from cranial bleeding and admitted to ICU. Authorities would only state that her injuries were serious. Police believe the victim knew Kalior and was with him for most of the day and the two left a party at 11 p.m. Kalior has not been charged with assault.

The police department issued the following statement:

Harbor Police arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday morning, July 27th in a hotel at 333 West Harbor Drive. He was booked into San Diego County Jail at 11:20 a.m. on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The victim, a juvenile female, was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment. The Harbor Police Investigations Unit is handling the incident. This investigation is ongoing.

Police said the victim was cosplaying as a female version of Roger Rabbit, and anyone who recalls seeing her between the hours of 11 p.m. and 2 a.m., should contact the police department at CrimeStoppers tip line: (888) 580-8477 or e-mail sdhpiwatch@portofsandiego.org.

Kalior posted bail on Sunday and is scheduled to appear in court on August 5 if charges are filed.

@Destinyheroknight:

Sometimes, HULU is a bit late and will actually take more than a week. They don't bother announcing it or making a feature notifying your favorite show is updated in Recently My Watched Shows feature. Crunchyroll at least notifies you on the anime channel. See My Main Gripes with HULU thread. I have to make a Crunchyroll grip thread one day.

To add to DHK's world wide issue

@flashback180:

In Europe, simulcast sites have to fight over copy right and licensing. Example would Wakanim UK and Crunchyroll that fight over UK and European countries. Even though we have lots of simulcast sites, the problem is that they are not all universal, so territories are don't get opportunity to check each site due to region locks.

Sendo took down an entire gang by himself before he started boxing training. Even Kimura and Aoki have feats like this. I'll look for the scans, out of 1000+ chapter manga, it might take a little while. Will edit this post when I get em

EDIT: Ah screw it. I tried uploading them all but its too much of a pain in the ass. Just check out chapters 216-220 for Aoki and Kimura, and 246 for Sendo

If you have problems with image uploading in Anime Vice, you can use Photo sharing sites like Photo Bucket, TUMBLR (if you have one), etc.

Please see How To Show Scans or Any Images thread for more creative uses.

@flashback180:

I have to edit your comment. In addition to posting links to pirated sites, we also prohibit individuals from naming pirated sites in our community.

@ElHa said:

Problem is that nearly all legal streaming sites won't work in European countries or (probably) China, but only in the US, Canada and Japan.

That's one of the main problems others have pointed out. The UK has Wakanim.tv which helps alleviate the problem. Still, it's a brutal cycle that can be approached from many angles: increase licensing but lose profit and shut down major pirating sites.

@TheFangKing:

You would introduce yourself in the Hi Im new and goodbye thread to prevent the surge of stub introduction threads. I hope you enjoy your stay in the site. If you have questions, feel free to ask the mods or any experienced users.

I see you attempted wiki editing. I will check your wiki submission. Before you wiki edit, I always tell folks to check the Anime Vice Wiki Style Guide and read our policy on Plagiarism. I see many new editors thinking our site is a copy of other sites or Wikia editors coming in to transfer their work which isn't allowed.

For battle forums and RPG, they have their separate rules. I suggest checking with the locals first before diving in if you have strong interests.

For anime and manga discussions, we have the #Anime Vice Discussion Threads as well as the Summer 2014 Anime Guide if you are interested in current and upcoming anime series.

Anime Vice is a multitude of different niches all coming together into a microcosm. I hope you find your niche.

Thank you.

What WayBig said. Our community is against piracy. It's simple. Just clean your scans. That's all I'm asking. Same thing for our wiki galleries, we clean them, too.

Also, we want out site to be taken seriously by official publishers who may support our site. We need all the support we can get from the anime and manga industry.
