I finally finished the Quick Picks manga releases for July's last 2 weeks. I'm starting to think that I can't improve my speed in completing them. It takes 3 - 4 hours to complete the article each week. I'll work on episode summaries tomorrow. PM me

@Acura_Max: @DBZ_universe: @Bigheart711: @Vapovile:

While studying for finals, my mind drifts off. I had a thought about the Ruby and Sapphire Remakes after recalling my Emerald happy days. They should bring back Battle Frontier. I remember in Emerald, I beat Pike Lucy, Brandon, and Factory guy (forgot his name) once. Freaking Brandon's pyramid was damn hard to complete for gold. I tried different strategies. Man, the endurance to survive each level was surreal. I never completed the Battle Frontier after hours of grinding and doing EV training. My poor Milotic Steven was great in Special Attack, but he was screwed in Defense. Once I transferred my beloved team to Platinum, I lost my drive to start over. Platinum's battle frontier wasn't that engaging or interesting. It was challenging but not as addicting like Emerald was.

Besides that, Pokemon Contests didn't do much for me.

General Discussion » in terms of powers/abilities are manga more creative then comics?

B. ICHI had some interesting powers all with their individual consequences. It's a shame it was developed into a full manga series.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Blood Lad Discussion

@waezi2:

Oh my bad. Not yet. Blood Lad is announced to be release this year in English Dub for DVD and Blu-Ray Release.

Viz Media's dubbed anime streaming service Neon Alley confirmed in response to a Twitter question on Thursday that the Blood Lad anime is currently being dubbed in English. Neon Alley also announced that the 10-episode television series' dub will stream for at least one month.

Viz Media announced its license of Blood Lad last July, when the series premiered. The distributor has been streaming English-subtitled episodes on its website and on Hulu. Viz Media's license includes home media, download-to-own, and streaming rights.

Neon Alley, which was previously available for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 with a monthly subscription fee, transitioned to a free, ad-supported service affiliated with Hulu and Hulu Plus on April 1. The service transitioned from a linear live stream schedule to video-on-demand, and will add subtitled anime from Viz's catalog, including simulcasts. The service is available on all devices that support Hulu Plus. The service also became available online for PCs and Macs last July.

The Blood Lad dark comedy anime adapts Yūki Kodama's manga that follows a vampire named Staz who has his figurative heart stolen by Fuyumi, a human high school girl who suddenly appears in his world. Unfortunately, she is just as suddenly killed, and thus she becomes a ghost. Staz tries to bring Fuyumi back to life.

Joining Ryota Ohsaka (Valvrave the Liberator, The Devil is a Part-Timer!) in the cast is Iori Nomizu (Is This a Zombie?, Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?) as Fuyumi Yanagi, Takuma Terashima (The IDOLM@STER, Kokoro Connect) as Wolf, Chiwa Saito (Rosario + Vampire Capu2, Bakemonogatari) as Mamejirō, Ryohei Kimura (Valvrave the Liberator, Neo Angelique) as Blood D. Bloods, Taichi Komesu as Deck, Yuuka Nanri (Wandering Son, Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they? ) as Blood T. Liz, Kazutomi Yamamoto (Majestic Prince, Makai Ōji: Devils and Realist) as Mimic Yoshida, and Koji Yusa (Zettai Karen Children, Valvrave the Liberator) as Papladon Achim.

Shigeyuki Miya (Lupin III: Green vs Red, Buzzer Beater) directed the anime at Brains Base from scripts by Takeshi Konuta (Library War, Toshokan Sensō: Kakumei no Tsubasa), and Kenji Fujisaki (chief animation director on Battle Girls - Time Paradox) created character designs. May'n (Macross Frontier) sings the anime's "ViViD" opening theme, while Yuuka Nanri (.hack//Roots) performs the ending theme "BLOODY HOLIC."

Viz Media plans to release the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD this year.

Bug Reporting » Is it just me or is the site taking too long to load

@NectariaKiritsi:

Don't worry, Tom Pinchuk has sent out a PM to the engineers. There should be a fix soon. I know wiki editing is a hassle. For me, I stick to writing articles because I can just write in word and quickly and copy paste.

The current situation

  • Comments don't get posted properly. Needs Refreshing
  • In Wiki editing, buttons, date fields, and links are unresponsive for a few secs
  • Adding images across the site runs into Error 504 or Epic Fail

You can hang out around the site. There are plenty of things to do besides wiki editing.

I thought I replied to you last night. I guess the site was glitching. My comment never got posted.

I never heard of these side stories. I think it's too late for May if they done Dawn already. Because they cover each season, I assume Pokemon Sunday cover her Hoenn region.

@Acura_Max:

Heh, I don't even own an XBox. I never really subscribe to those subscription services for XBox or Playstation to due how tight money is and how much time I play games which is less than an hour a week. With subscriptions for any services (anime, gamestop, supermarkets), you save more if you use them often. I could be wrong there.

@GokaiRed:

How's Red Dead Redemption? I heard good things about it. It takes exploration to a whole new level.

I have never played a Spider-Man video game before. This looks awesome.

Battles » Best Battle User of May 2014: DBZ_Universe

@DBZ_universe:

Oh boy, I haven't dealt with characters who have hax abilities. I think I'll leave it the experts, then. If I had to, I'll PM you the settings for you to check then. I did that with Taichokage for future battle matches. I haven't posted the SDS matches because I lost the PM. Sadly enough.

He did those horrible things to Staz because I remember if it wasn't for those experiments, he would have gotten stronger or his body couldn't handle his own strength. The anime was translated. Unless you want a 2nd season. There is not much info or enough hype from fans to demand a 2nd season.

Battles » Best Battle User of May 2014: DBZ_Universe

@DBZ_universe:

I never read or watch Kekkaishi before. It was hard making Kill la Kill battle threads for Vapovile's battle theme even thought I had watched the series. Just don't know what franchise to pair Kill la Kill with. For Hitman Reborn, I never read it, so I couldn't tell if my Touta Konoe vs Tsunayoshi Sawada or Bluebell (Reborn) vs Juvia Lockser were bad or mismatched despite looking up the Wikia.

Battles » Vote For The Best Battle User of June 2014

I'll be voting for He's a good debater who handles harsh confrontations from the new users I seen recently and showing an example of how to keep composure. He's starting a trend on making more in-verse battle threads. Keep an eye on him.

As much as I want to vote for SMXLR8, he's a good guy, but he's hard to work with during the phone book project which I had to close down. I know we had some disagreements.

Battles » Kid Buu vs Broly

@xlab3000:

Check your outbox. I happened to be on patrol for a little break from writing final papers. I didn't receive a PM from you. I don't think Dream did either.

Based on the comments, there is a majority. Due to my lack of experience and not being a battle mod, I can't really lock threads. I do see some folks playfully side with Broly. Ahem, DBZ Universe.

I only lock threads that are full of hate, flame war, or has a troll rampant in state of crisis. I leave the mismatch, spite, and stomp threads to Dream and Sonata. They have better judgement. With 19 posts left to the 100 post lock, just let it die. I or Dream will lock the thread. If it does get ugly, I'll lock it early.

@NectariaKiritsi:

I didn't get your PM. You must have posted it without using the @ system. We have a Pokémon Video Game Club that @Daniel_Newton: and started. We also had a trading card game club, too.

For the Sapphire and Ruby remakes, I heard of them thanks to Acura. I have to wait and see what type of content they give out. I'm tight on money. It's good to see it come out for the newer generation who didn't play those games and started with the DS generations. I started with Leaf Green, then Emerald, and finally, Platinum.

I wonder if the writers will make a new special episode with May?

I thought she did. She got to meet Dawn. Dawn got to meet Iris in the Meloetta and Cynthia special arc. Her arc was longer than any other heroine's story arcs. I still need to watch XY anime.

If anyone is curious what kind of person Araki is, here's a link to the translated volume notes that he wrote on each volume that got released (of course some are missing). He's a really interesting and weird dude.

Like, his favorite "scary" movie is Night Of The Living Dead and one of his favorite albums from the 70's is Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon. Also he really doesn't want people to climb trees because it's dangerous.

Thanks, I read the Phantom Blood arc notes. I see he is like O'Brien who cherishes memories and loves writing because it keeps the dead alive.
