Finished wiki moderation and sweeping through the battle forum threads. I'll update some wiki pages for the Fall 2014 series. I haven't add the international simulcast data to the wiki pages yet. PM me if you need me.

General Discussion » Japan's Anti-Anime/Manga Piracy Operation

@mrwhitex said:

by what are those legal sites their talking about ?

For legal anime streaming sites, that would be Viz Media, Aniplex of America, FUNimation, HULU, and Crunchyroll. For simulpub, it's Viz Media Shonen Alpha, Yen Press (I think), and Crunchyroll. Since you're from Saudi Arabia, I think Crunchyroll is open to your region since HULU might be restricted to the US. Auron570 told me HULU isn't accessible in Canada.

@taichokage:

Good point, but I still believe the industry is still growing just not as rapidly like video games and comic books. When I saw San Diego Comic Con and how much coverage that they had compared to AX, it hints to me that the comic book industry was way affluent than anime industry. I haven't seen other industries besides anime and manga.

Errm, did someone put in Frank Cho, Ed Benes, Mike Choi, and Jim Lee without knowing they're artists? Not characters.

@Whats_out_the_bag:

Done!

That would be me since I don't really know comic books. Thanks for catching the mistake.

Battles » Vote For The Best Battle User of August 2014 (Last Voting Thread)

@Kobra678:

Kobra: You misunderstood my comment and that thread I posted. I discontinued front page coverage in order to alleviate the pressure. Not everyone has enough materials for me to write in their interview. Yes, I will finish this month. I wouldn't cancel a voting thread when it's almost done.

General Discussion » Which is the Better Franchise? Transformers or Gundams

@SMXLR8 said:

I am not sure but sure dream has some points but things like these are usually opinions so it should be treated as such . Both series are good and bad regardless of what the fans think

Awkward phrasing to say the least. Yes, it depends on the fans' preferences. That's the purpose of an open ended question. There is no right or wrong answer.

General Discussion » Japan's Anti-Anime/Manga Piracy Operation

I agree with @Dream:

Part of piracy issue is that the lack of having licensed titles in countries other than USA will encourage people to pirate anime and manga. It's hard to solve this since not every anime and manga will be fit to be marketable in certain countries due to their demographics and content (mature content or has anti-nationalism themes) in it.

Off-Topic » Best of Battle Users's Front Page Coverage Would be Discontinued

After seeing WayBig's new Hall of Famer project and the complications, I'm going to stop the front page coverage in order to give obscure users a chance to be spotlighted.

Front page is great for any niche in Anime Vice, but the pressure with it, it does make it harder for a new user to prove that he or she has the makings after successively being voted by the community. The August's Best Battle User won't be on the front page nor it will be the last thread. We will keep going.

I'll send a PM to the staff. I do hate to kill off momentum and be inconsistent with the progress we have made. This is for the best.

General Discussion » Japan's Anti-Anime/Manga Piracy Operation

In cooperation with 15 major anime production companies and manga publishers, the Japanese government will next month start a huge extermination operation against 580 foreign sites which have illegally uploaded anime and manga contents on the web without the copyright holders' permission, NHK reported on July 28. While the government has started supporting the genre as one of their important cultural exports, there appears to be no end of illegal uploading of anime and manga via pirate sites, mainly operated by Chinese. The Cultural Affairs Agency estimates the loss caused by the Chinese pirate sites last year was amounted to at least 560 billion yen (about US$ 5.5 billion).

On August 1, the government will start simultaneously sending requests to delete illegal anime and manga contents to the operators of the 580 foreign pirate sites which they have found. In addition, the operation will launch a new site to guide the fans to a legitimate site offering some 250 titles including

the latest ones at a cost of several hundred yen.

How do you guys and gals feel about this operation and its actions towards piracy? Do you believe it benefit the industry or not?

MAG Project shared this vid to thank everyone.

Thank you.

Bug Reporting » The missing feature: Email Notification

@YotaruVegeta:

We do have one, but I'm not sure if the e-mail system works. Some users notice the e-mail to create a user account isn't working 100 percent after the Whiskey Media sale out. Without a new subscription process like they have in Tested, there is likely to be no e-mail notifications. I haven't tried subscribing it if you want me to test it out. I'm not familiar with RSS.

It does update though, but I prefer checking the front page.

  1. Open a paint program
  2. Copy and Paste Manga Scan
  3. Get an eraser, shape tool, or crop tool
  4. Find the watermark
  5. Erase it

Do you understand now?

@DeathHero61:

I just told you how to clean a scan and I even show you the finished product.

What else is there to explain? You pick a paint program of any kind and white out the watermarks.

@takashichea:

Cleaning? i see no difference.

I cleaned your scans yesterday. I gave you directions and what it looks like on your image. If you can't understand the difference, I have to ask you to not upload scans in our forums. If you upload scans with pirated marks, I won't bother cleaning for you. I will give you a warning.

Sorry, I have to be strict. I clean images all the time in the battle forums while the other mods just remove them.

@Ikki_Minami_:

At night time, I patrol on the phone for spam bots. When I get home from work, I'm on the computer until night fall. Just let me know if you can't clean images.

Finished episode 3. Inaho is pretty smart. It's nice to see a victory in mech genre not come luck and pure brute force in the face of near unstoppable foes.

Finally finish season 1. Didn't expect Art was alive. I feel like this is drawing parallels to Psycho Pass and maybe Joker/Batman.

The only deep thing I got from the series is that the harem lead was a tool before and made to kill. The irony is that women are making him their servant. Since this and Hsmatora are my only shows for Monday, I watch both then.

Created the wiki page for Juanito: Arcade Mayhem. Do you have the release date or a fuzzy date for the game? I check the trailer and the Facebook page. It's up to you. Giant Bomb is one of the biggest video game communities out there next to Game Spot, Kotaku, and IGN.

@generator2000:

You can ask for a lock. Look at your comment carefully.

Edit:

@generator2000 said:

@takashichea: @Kobra678: ...Unless is SSJ4 GT Gogeta.... who still might not beat full power Seiya...

You should lock this. Qwsp is more powerful than almost every character on your banned character list. Qwsp is on par and or beyond even the Spectre. DC imps actually can beat the Spectre with casual ease. Joker once got 5th Dimensional powers and imprisoned Spectre.
