@Bigheart711:

Thanks teammate, being sick sucks. I can't think straight. Plus, the heat wave isn't helping either. I bet it's hot over at your end, too.

Battles » List of Banned Characters in the Battle Threads

@Dream:

I'll keep an eye out for those characters. The only action I see is locking threads with characters who have new abilities but not enough feats such as Igneel (Fairy Tail), Red Oni Toriko etc. Those are temporary locks.

I can't think straight since I was working pretty late at night again this week. Then, I got hit by my allergies. My reply will be short. Your views are piracy is great and was from another angle I haven't seen, neglect. For me, what I observed is that piracy comes from fans who want to see a show or read a manga but it's not available in their country legally. They have to resort to any means.

That's the demand behind fan scanlations. All these manga series, only a fraction gets licensed for countries mostly western outside of Japan. Countries like in Africa and many others who are small in demand will have to resort piracy. It's not a choice for them. In the states, you have more options. Like you mention, these legal sites, Crunchyroll, FUNimation, HULU, and Netflix have their limitations of what they pick up. Despite there is competition, folks benefit from competition because it normally lowers price for them. In this type of marketing, subscribing isn't going to let folks to freely sample each company and save money. As a mod, I have to stick with promoting things legally in the site. It's an oath we sign. I only violated once for one show.

I feel the same way with anime. It's more easy for me to identify with video game interest in public than anime. I do see people treating anime as children show or as adult porn. It was never in the middle. I talked with friends. Most of them are not into anime like I am. They share stereotypes of anime. Most of them are gamers or comic book lovers.

For Korra, each Book feels separate o how they are constructed. You end the book by defeating the villain. Avatar had a book villain and overarching story with the big villain at the end. I agree how it Avatar felt more complete than Korra. I hope this universe generates spin-offs and such. It has build something with plenty of material and potential for fans, new and old, to enjoy.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Denkigai no Honya-san Discussion

I gave this show a try since Terra Formars' episode 2 was delayed. It's not so bad. It didn't pull me in with the pilot's show. I got a couple of laughs at the ero stuff. Next episode is milking more fan service with panties and bloomers. I'm not sure this show is right for me.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Silver Will Argevollen Discussion

@Marshal Victory:

The gatling at the crotch is a bit weird. It's not like Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere where I heard mechs have boobs on them. I don't know why.

Looks like the next episode introduces a new mech for the enemies that is similar to Argevollen. It might tip the scales or cause a lot of hell on earth.

@Wraith:

I don't know if Jamie is jealous or not of our new girl. She's more into mechs than boys. She's a bonafide grease monkey or mech. Tokimune might lose control or become to sensitive to attacks on Argevollen. My best guess for 100% sync rate.

Buddy Complex: Kanketsu-hen - Ano Sora ni Kaeru Mirai de (OVA) » Fall 2014 OVA Trailer: Buddy Complex

@Marshal Victory:

Makes sense. It does kill off a chance for season 2 unless they retcon it. Magi didn't have OVA, but they retcon season 1's anime exclusive ending.

@Acura_Max:

I agree, it's bad especially for new customers who haven't tried it. As I recall, the more platforms you have, the wider your net in marketing will be. I hope they send a "patch" or something for the IPAD fans. I don't recall Nintendo ever doing things in the mobile device realm. I recall Sony jumping in it with their Final Fantasy games for phones and IPADs.

There was a rip off of Yoshi game on the IPAD. I can't remember the name.

@Acura_Max:

Many things aren't working with IPADs and those touch screen, mobile devices. I was never interested in those devices. Plus, they are expensive than laptops. I haven't purchased a new one after giving away my older one to my younger sister.

Editing & Tools » To Wiki Editors, Please be Careful About Verb Tense

This wiki tip thread serves as an addendum to the Anime Vice Wiki Style Guide. I notice this has been a growing issue. I'm a non Native English speaker. I wasn't born here in the states and moved here around 10 or so. I know the struggles of learning English pretty well. As I was wiki mod and a new Admin of Sket Dance and Btooom Wikia, I encounter so many international wiki editors.

I notice a key issue was verb tense. In the Wiki Style Guide and wiki manuals of my Wikia I used to serve at, you used past tense when you talking about a back story or origin of a character. The rest of the section except Trivia (which is used in Wikia and not in our site's wiki pages) and some parts of Evolution section must be written in present tense. In Evolution, you compare and contrast past, present, and future appearances, relationships, and personality when talking about how a character changes over time in a story.

I can pick up clues to see if a new wiki editor is writing about back story.

Examples

  • 5 Years Ago - or any time transitional phrases

When I encounter these types of article submissions, it can be hard for me to distinguish what is backstory and story arcs when folks switch back and forth in a paragraph. I assume the sentence, "He was one of the original team members" is an origin page.

As a wiki mod, I do various wiki submissions. The more intimate submissions are the heavy text ones.

My bad. I was caught in updating the OVA/Movie Guide for the fall.

I agree Netflix's anime library is really bad. The only new thing they took was Knights of Sidonia. It was the only time I had to break my rule of resorting to piracy to watch Knights of Sidonia. I just can't stand Netflix. I already pay for Crunchyroll and HULU about 8 dollars a month each. I'm tight on money along with the cable bill and rent. I remember from my folks from around the world and in America, TV used to be good with anime until the rise of computers and internet took place. Piracy, which is the biggest issue than censorship and sexism which plagues the video game franchise, is very dominant in our anime industry. It affects everyone.

I recall Supreme Marvel mention how football and soap drama shows are popular in Liverpool than anime. Kurt mentions it was expensive to buy anime in the UK and there isn't much legal means. I feel really bad for folks in the UK. I heard it was a melting pot with diverse populations just like the states. That should garner a good market for anime.

For Korra, I wish it last a bit longer. I can't think of anyway to lengthen a series. Shonen anime series are successful, but they get stale over time. Korra and Avatar did pretty well for being cartoon or arguably anime. I haven't seen shows like it except Young Justice and a few top notch DC or Marvel comic book animated series. I mean 1994 Spiderman and Batman animated series were my best childhood cartoon series before I went into anime around college.

@Vapovile:

That's good to hear. I wasn't sure if you guys had a plan last time since the PM went dead. The only wiki editor in your group is Sonata. You have to me as on standby.

The other pages: #AnimeVice and #Wiki Editors are being used. I hate to let a wiki page go unused.

I'll move back the old bios from the #Unused RPG Bios to the RPG forum in a sec.

@Vapovile:

What about the #RPG thread? I ask you guys what do with the wiki page I created in a PM. I recalled some of you said storage for old threads.

This does come into my wiki territory. If you don't want that page, I delete it. You guys can do your archive thread instead.
