At 9 PM, I will stop wiki editing and watch Inuyasha Final Act while on spam bot patrol. Hopefully, I get the wiki report done for Foxx while completing my weekly ep summaries. PM me if you need me.

HULU » My Main Gripes with HULU

@sickVisionz:

I ended up using the services a bit different from everyone due to being a wiki editor. The simulcast thing drives me insane a bit. For HULU, their image quality is terrible on PC when I compared to Crunchyroll. For TV, I can't tell the difference comparing to Crunchyroll App on PS3. At least, HULU's app on PS3 doesn't freeze so much like Crunchyroll's app.

Oh yeah, I forgot about their suggestions based on what you watched. I agree they are downright terrible. The ads are a bit weird. Some shows have 2 or 3 which is about 30 to 1 minute. While some shows are peppered with more ads, some don't have ads like Nick shows. It's not very consistent. It's just if you want to marathon stuff, do it on DVD/Blu-Ray, Netflix, or Crunchyroll.

I do love HULU, but I hate it as well. Same for Crunchyroll.

HULU » My Main Gripes with HULU

Besides the ads in the HULU subscription which ruins the full enjoyment in marathons, I have a lot of issues with this simulcast site just like Crunchyroll. There is no perfect Simulcast site which I mainly use 2 sites all paid subscription, HULU and Crunchyroll.

It's unprofessional for a mod to do this. I'm going to blow some steam off since the stress is killing me. Every season, I work on the simulcast articles. HULU has been a disservice. I have been patient, asking them on Twitter if they have blogs or something on Facebook for an anime simulcast list. I don't get much response or any. Their HULU Support Twitter is excellent with trouble shooting glitches, but their other Twitter entity doesn't do well for anime folks. Every time, I do a simulcast list for HULU. I have to assume each season, they are taking shows from Aniplex of America and FUNimation but with a week delay after those two do their simulcasts.

Sometimes, HULU will take shows from Crunchyroll after a season.

I asked other users for help with this company. I can't remember what Daniel, sickVisionz, and Marshal Victory told me in our last HULU PM. I believe Daniel told me to exclude HULU from simulcast articles if they don't provide concrete information. sickVisionz stated HULU is a good streaming site but with bad user features. I actually went to the HULU booth at Anime Expo 2014 for a simulcast list. I couldn't get answers since they were busy at the time, doing their surveys. To me, if you are going to cater to anime fans, you need to put up better PR and update fans with a new feature on your App:

  • HULU's Recently Added Anime or Recently Added Shows You Follow

The latter choice would be better for anime and non anime fans.

Another reason HULU makes me frustrated is their anime profile pages don't have dates for their simulcasts. I have to check every day to see if what day they stream on. They don't tell you if they have delays in simulcasts. For Soul Eater Not, Episode 12 came out really late.

Battles » Sasuke Uchiha vs Byakuya kuchiki

@taichokage:

This is why I wasn't designated as a battle mod. I ended up overlooking things. I guess it's the stress from another project. I wasn't careful enough. I lock the other thread. It will be weird locking the only Sasuke Uchiha vs Byakuya Kuchiki thread. Plus, it has a fully spelled title unlike the other one.

Maybe you should to talk our new user in the battle forums, @chirothewolf:

Oh, I didn't give you a proper welcome. How rude of me. Welcome to Anime Vice! I hope you enjoy your stay.

Battles » Sasuke vs Byakuya

@xlab3000:

Also, you put this in the wrong thread, Fan Fic. It's no wonder no one commented on this thread either. You need to PM a mod to move your threads. It's your responsibility as well. Otherwise, we won't find it.

Battles » Sasuke vs Byakuya

@xlab3000:

I locked a new thread by a new user named when I check this old thread. You didn't put enough effort in making a good battle thread.

I'll be locking this thread instead. Sorry, Chirothewolf, I wasn't doing my job properly enough.

Battles » Super Saiyan 3 Trunks vs Current Ichigo

@othus12:

Yeah, I had the same feeling when Trunks SSJ3 was only found in the video game. Though, it's in the grey area to lock this since video games are notoriously hard to debate on in the battle forums.

Thank you, I'll lock it.

@chirothewolf:

I'm sorry. If you believe I made a mistake, you can ask Dream or Sonata at the Over The Limit!: AV Battle Community Vote Thread. Thank you.

Battles » Super Saiyan 3 Trunks vs Current Ichigo

@othus12:

The true battle mods, Dream and Sonata, aren't online, so I act as a temp then. Do you want me to lock it? Before I do, can you please explain to me? I'm not really a battle person.

Thank you.

@Kobra678:

It's Shonen but it's not a sport show. Let me narrow the scope a bit with thanks to Dream. Before I ask my genre question, did you say yes to both Shonen and Action genre?

What we got so far?

  1. Male
  2. Shonen Action
  3. Not HST
  4. Main Character
  5. No Superhuman abilities
  6. Not an athlete - knocks out sport genre.

Sorry everyone. I have to lock this since it reached 100 posts. I know it sounds silly to new users. That's our current rule. I know an old friend, Vapovile, pointed out that arbitrary limits limits the discussion. It will change once the size of the community get bigger or something big happens.

Please see the Over The Limit!: AV Battle Community Vote Thread. and vote on this thread.

Battles » The Official CAV Thread

@SMXLR8:

Where's your archive of past CAVs? I won't pin this thread until you complete your community project's thread professionally. It pains me as a fellow historian in the community when one person calls it unnecessary to leave out past CAVS. You did archive them in the 1st CAV. Yes, it was my mistake for deleting your first CAV for a spam thread and it was probably your mistake in causing a glitch to delete the 2nd CAV. You should back up your stuff on WORD.

When you said it was unnecessary and discard their importance, it hurts the feelings of past debaters who spent their time with you making those CAVs. I archive a lot of things in the site, Wiki Editors Project Archive 2013 and the Best Battle Users of the Month. You're doing a small archive in this project. Don't forget them.

Good job on finally making a blue print for your fellow users. That will help you eliminate miscommunication since you can be vague with your requests most of the time.

Are you watching the first season or SAO II?

@Supreme Marvel:

Let's hope our new villain has better motives. I like the first villain because he wasn't perverted although he forgot why he committed those atrocities after building his castle.

I'm thinking Sinon's friend could be Death Gun. Who suggest to a girl to immerse in a shooting game if they are afraid of guns? Also, she is afraid of real guns not virtual guns but why did she freak out at the bully.

Second episode was just the same as the old series. Not much new stuff besides the revamped transformation of Mercury with new lines.
