@Marshal Victory:

Oh yes, you are right. I got my world history mixed up. I forgot the Germans once believed in Norse mythology. I guess we jumped on the gun with the mythology here. Everything pretty much fits.

Just Manga » List of Manga Series Ending in 2015

@Destinyheroknight:

I went on Baka Updates and look up the series. Found out it did ended its serialization and will just distribute the tankobons to collect those chapters from the anthology magazines.

Thanks for the news tip and the better scan.

No worries, I'll create those manga wiki pages for these guys in the weekend if they have a retail tankobon cover. That way, I can link them in this thread.

My Hero Academia » Viz Media Obtains My Hero Academia

This week's issue of Viz Media's Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine announced on Monday that it will begin serializing Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) manga beginning in next week's issue. The series will run simultaneously with Japan beginning with the February 9 issue.

Horikoshi launched the series in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in July, and Shueisha shipped the first volume in November. The volume ranked on Oricon's chart of the top ten best selling graphic novels in Japan in its first week of release.

The story is set in the modern day, except people with special powers have become commonplace throughout the world. A boy named Izuku Midoriya has no powers, but he still dreams.

Battles » Leone vs White Tiger (Ava Ayala) vs Catwoman (52)

Combatants

A battle between feline warriors across the different mediums.

Note: I was about to use Black Cat instead of White Tiger, but I saw she had some lifting feats that outmatch Catwoman and Leone. It was strange to see specific measurements for most of the Marvel characters. I would use well known feline themed characters. Depending on your preferences in anime, Leone might not be your most well known feline character in anime. Sorry about that. She was the second character in mind for after the well endowed gal in Cat Planet Cuties. If you know any good cat girl or guy characters in anime, please let me know!

Conditions

  • In character
  • No prep
  • No restrictions
  • Location: Fuyuki City
  • Victory by KO

Please let me know if I need to fix anything. This thread is created to supported EVA_01's battle theme (see Anime Vice Battle User of January 2015: EVA_01). Also, we are promoting more comic books vs anime/manga trends in the battle community and the Comic Book Club. Thank you, please support the January 2015 battle theme.

Battles » Mismatch Center: Run by Battle Veterans!

Had thoughts on making Angel (Marvel) vs Run (Akame ga Kill). After reading Angel's powers, it wasn't a good idea. Angel has the speed and regenerative abilities which trumps Run's abilities.

Jesus, it's hard to come up with Marvel vs Manga characters since one side could be powerful than the other.

Had another idea but not for Marvel.

It's Joe Shimamura vs Cyborg of DC. I haven't look up their feats yet. I was thinking of a cyborg fight. My memories are pretty fuzzy of Joe Shimamura since I never finished the series back in Toonami. As for Cyborg, I never read much DC comics. I have to look both their feats.

@Marshal Victory:

I'm assuming Germanic because I recall Germany providing mercenaries (that was back in the American revolution against the British). It could be it. Vikings don't wear those kind of outfits that these marauders wore.

@Marshal Victory: @Bigheart711:

Some shows do mixing of mythos well while some made into a mess. You have this series centered in medieval Europe, and we have a fight between the French and English. Christianity and Norse mythology don't really mix well.

Crunchyroll » Crunchyroll Service Changes: Manga

As of January 15, 2015, the manga service became unlimited access to Premium members. At first, premium members (anime) only had limited access to certain manga and drama titles. They can only read the current chapter and cannot go back. Only All Access members can read all the manga series. Now, the manga only premium membership is being phased out.

In addition to the unlimited manga service, Crunchyroll is planning to release the full catalog of these following titles:

In this community, we advocate users to read manga legally and inform our members about legal options. Here's the manga library from Crunchyroll.

Note:

I found this news a bit late, but I'll post to reach more folks who haven't heard yet. I recall reading older chapters since I was testing out the manga feature when giving a guest pass and a bit of run down on Crunchyroll services to a friend in the community. I was quite puzzled why I was able to access older chapters when I couldn't do it before. I just learned today.

I usually check the front page news and not the site forum. It was a bit of error on my insight since I usually track down simulcast updates from the front page news. It would be great if Crunchyroll e-mail all members instead of only the manga only premium members since you could still have folks not know about this recent service change.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Kofuku Graffiti Discussion

I tried the first episode. Got a Toriko vibe when one of the girls mentioned food taste better when you are eating with friends and family. That's one of the core concepts in Toriko.

The anime is very cute and character driven. You have a young girl who applied to Tokyo's school, and she doesn't like her mother's nutritional, vegetable heavy meals. Then, you have another girl who recently lost her grandmother. The two share a powerful friendship.

Lastly, there is a lot of emphasis on close up on the character's lips when they eat.

I don't think I'll follow up with this show. It doesn't appeal to me.

If you don't have your text editor because of browser issues or you are on mobile device, you can't upload images. Sometimes, when you drag images, it doesn't work all the time.

Battles » Esdeath VS Budo

@SMXLR8:

Not just anime. The anime ended in fall 2014. On top of the anime's success, the manga has received a lot of positive praise, and the manga is currently at Esdeath and Budo's fight against Tatsumi's group.

The battle community tends to follow this type of pattern when a beloved character gets new feats and power ups such as Ichibei, Toneri, Yhwach back in December 2014.

Watched episode 2. I was confused by the laws in this show. You have a witch defending human lives and not taking any of them. Angels in heavens don't do crap. Also, mixing Norse mythology in with the Christianity and Roman Catholic themes, the Valkyries, in this show adds a huge mess in this series.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Durarara!!x2 Discussion

Because we have a large cast of characters, the anime does a fine job of meshing them together. My main gripes is that the show tends to jump around in the 3rd episode from one group to another. Unlike season 1 where I was completely lost, I know the characters more which made me understand them better.

Episode 15 was great. It had a good mix of explanations and action scenes. Love Jin's and Ai's group's fights. It's weird how mellow this series is. It's like a game to them. Once they bail out after being defeated, a receptionist greets them. They watch the fight.
