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

@taichokage:

Maybe the anime didn't develop her or show much of her for me to feel some sort of pity. I only got to see Veronica for two or three episodes. Episode 12 was her spotlight. I got to read the manga to see the differences. Hawk is a great comic relief character, my favorite character next to Happy.

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

@taichokage:

I do remember your conversations with Katmic on the Shonen demon cliche. It was the first time I heard about and I finally realize how common it was in the shows I watch. There are shows you and Katmic pointed that didn't have it. I loved Ichigo's demon the most. He has the best, scary design. Which reminds me to catch up to Bleach.

Hawk is the most abused character in the show. I was surprised they killed off Veronica. She seems such an important person with a role. Boom, she dies. First time, I see someone die in a show. It came out of nowhere. I know the series had deaths as seen in Meliodas' and others' past. It seem natural to me. I'm weird.

I caught up to you. @Marshal Victory:

I swear I didn't recognize Guila or Jericho. The referee was a good twist. It's odd a mine killed off Veronica but it didn't kill Hawk who may possess plot armor.

Our heroes have finally suffer defeat.

I don't like Meliodas' blank look. The Shonen demon cliche is a bit common. Ichigo has his demon, Naruto did too. Meliodas' tattoo looks awesome, but it didn't match up with that look.

Battles » Mismatch Center: Run by Battle Veterans!

@JackFanon said:

Do you think Starfire from Teen Titans vs. Kagura from Gintama is a mismatch?

Don't know if anyone saw your request. I'm not familiar with Starfire (if you are talking about the comic version) or Kagura. I did lock your Gintoki thread for not adding conditions or restricting toon force. Kagura seems to be street level while Starfire seems to be higher. I would have to guess it's a mismatch thread. I could be wrong.

If I find someone who knows Gintama or Starfire, I'll let you know.

Canada » Seems Canadian fans may have to create their own legal site

@DENelson83:

It would be best to promote the idea over at Vancouver's anime convention where you would meet your audience, open a kickstarter project to get funds, and get connections with folks in the industry. I don't really know much. There could be more steps and preparations needed. I didn't know Crunchyroll was made by fans. I have to recheck their background. Starting such a company that serves the demands requires a lot of investment in money and time. It's going to be an overwhelming process.

I know you are passionate about Neon Alley. Just consider how much you and your folks have to do.

Fairy Tail » List of Fairy Tail Manga Wiki Pages

Hello everyone, I'm Taka, one of the wiki editors in the Fairy Tail wiki project. I'm promoting an old wiki project. I spent a lot of time working on Fairy Tail for the past 4 years in this site. I always work on this project, making it the most completed one in our wiki community. The project had the most support and users back in 2010 and 11. Now, it's just a few wiki editors carrying the torch.

One of the challenging parts of being a wiki editor is the language barrier and knowing the releases. I wish I knew Japanese. I have to depend on Google Chrome which has an inaccurate translator. The translator takes things too literally. I have to rely on ISBN and names of authors to match things up. I roam Amazon.co.jp often, seeing any new manga covers for various franchises. Fairy Tail is very unusual since it had a ton of spin-offs that resemble magazines more than manga. I had to double check to make sure I had actual manga. I was surprised to find a light novel at one point. It wasn't listed on Wikipedia or Fairy Tail Wikia at the time. I was confused on what I had since I haven't seen manga series that had a light novel adaptation.

What we're missing are Fairy Tail Zero and Fairy Tail Blue Mistral. The rules in our site dictates we need actual retail tankobon covers. That's why I haven't added them yet. They were featured in the Fairy Tail Monthly Magazine and will be selling into two different tankobon series.

If you are a fan of franchise, check them out. Only the main series is available in the US. The rest of them are still in Japan. The popularity of these series is a sure sign that these titles will hit countries outside of Japan.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is a shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima.

Fairy Tail (Light Novel)
Written by Kawasaki Miu, 川崎美羽
Fairy Tail Matsuri

This is a compilation of one-shots created by Hiro Mashima that were featured in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen, Magazine Special, Young, and Monthly Shonen Magazines.

Monthly Fairy Tail

Launched on July 17, 2014, the monthly magazine had two spin-off series, Fairy Tail Zero and Tale of Fairy Tail: Ice Trail.

I'm confused why is he bald again. I could have sworn he had hair during the Majin Buu arc.

Off-Topic » Any other Canadians here?

@DENelson83:

This is the wrong section to post. Just Anime is for anime topics. This would go into the off-topic forum.

I do know Canadian Anime Vice folks:

Ep. 11 explores Souji's feminine side. Get to see another side of Aika who takes care of Souji's hair. I thought Souji would turn into a guy during the bath scene with Aika. The only thing I didn't like was the scenes that involved going to the bathroom. It was uncomfortable to say the least.

Here is a shot of Krillin's character design:

The magazine lists that Krillin has "surprisingly" become a police officer, and asks, "What could have happened after the last film!?" The magazine also notes that Krillin has returned to being bald, as opposed to his spiky hair from the previous film.

Battles » Who can beat composite Obito?

@nishi99: @Shadowchaos:

I don't know the answer since we don't know our staff or engineers well unlike back in the Whiskey Media days where we had Ethan Lance who was the most vocal engineer who drove the wiki pages and front page content. It's the holidays. We had a slowdown during Thanksgiving break. It happens. People of all occupations need a break in a while. I'm starting to record the site's history of slowdowns and getting a pattern. See Anime Vice's Bug Reporting Records.

Sorry for the belated reply. 8 hours ago was the morning for me. I had to log out and get some sleep. That's the 3rd slowdown we had this year.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Akame ga Kill Discussion

@Oglaphone: @taichokage:@Wraith: and anyone reading the manga

Just found this news:

Akame ga Kill Enters its last arc

Takahiro and Tetsuya Tashiro's 11th Akame ga KILL! manga volume is announcing on Monday that the manga will start its final arc in the next volume. The 12th volume will ship next summer.

The dark action fantasy manga inspired an ongoing television anime. The anime premiered in July, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series in North America. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.

I'm looking forward to it. I'm glad the manga is licensed and release for countries outside of Japan starting in January 2015. I better save some money to purchase those volumes. 12 volumes is not a bad collection.
