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

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders Discussion

@rubberluffy:

I'm finished the Phantom Blood part, but I'll wait for Tom to catch up. Erina was in the dark with Dio and Jojo's fight. I haven't seen a lot of shows that kill the main character. I was surprised.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Fairy Tail Discussion (Manga)

@Destinyheroknight:

You have a better memory than me. I read those chapters fast. With Elfman's scenes, it was a definite serious tone. I agree that killing off major characters wasn't Hiro Mashima's style. I guess for me I was personally scaling Fairy Tail against other series.

One Piece nails the mood contrasts better. It's happy go lucky, and it has dark tones with the children's drug addiction and people dying during Punk Hazard, the massive casualties in Marineford, and slavery during Mermaid Island arc.

Sure you can! It's not segregated to anyone. You can vote for anyone who's not banned or not a mod. Heck, you can vote for someone who is not even a battle person.

I'll be locking this thread. Plus, one of our users in the race is showing a negative image here.

@Destinyheroknight:

I was talking about major character death. The last time we had that was Simon and Future Lucy in a sense. Regarding the dark tone, it didn't really feel dark for the killing of the Magic Council or minor characters. Dark is when you up the brutality or make the series feel so hopeless and despair like D. Gray-man. His tone with Fairy Tail is pretty inconsistent compared to Rave Master.

Battles » Gremmy runs this gauntlet

@hitsusatsu11 said:

Renji

Madara

Gai

Gremmy

Who will be the next big thing on the vice?

Anyway for this thread I dont think Gremmy wins any.

Check the April 2014 Anime Vice Community Report. I got the battle themes that were dominant at that time. I forgot to put Kenpachi in for April.

On-topic:

I'm not up to speed with Bleach. I can't comment on this battle thread.

Well, we can't prohibit joke battle threads that go into politics. It's not in the rules. However, if there are so much of these, then we will take it in for consideration.

I'll have to be off-line soon. Things right now look pretty calm and orderly.

General Discussion » Should I read/watch thread.

@SMXLR8:

If you want uncensored violence and blood, read the manga. The anime ends in an anime exclusive ending. As Taichokage put it, it won't be able to start up the Billion Bird Arc. The anime needs a reboot.

For anime, it's not bad. If you read the manga first, you will notice the slight drop in the aesthetics and art style in the anime.

Check out the TORIKO Roundtable. WayBig did a good job analyzing the flaws, but watch out for spoilers.

Should I read or watch Love Hina?

It was a good episode, revealing more of Rentaro's past as well as good Loli battle. Sorry, I can't help but stress the loli part.

@Marshal Victory:

The evolution of the Gastrea and the whole evolution theme is pretty common. I can name a few examples:

  • Bleach with its Hollows
  • D. Gray-Man with its Akuma

However, the Gastrea's highest evolution seems more Armageddon than intelligent, humanoid beings.

General Discussion » Should I read/watch thread.

Read Blue Exorcist. The anime is cut short and diverges around episode 17 or 18 into an anime exclusive ending. Can't remember what episode number. Plus, the characters are underdeveloped in a short manner. You won't get much satisfaction from watching the anime.

Should I read or watch Negima?

Battles » Vapovile's AV Battle Usage Project

@Vapovile:

Which one do you want: Gremmy or Kenpachi? Recording every battle thread and even this month takes too much time. Take the top three would be the most effective. It might be one of the Hitman Reborn characters or Juubito. We'll just got to keep an eye out.

Not a lot of our folks are into data. They want the results that's easy for them to read.

@RyanBurns:

Make sure you put Joke battle in the title or OP if it doesn't fit in the title.

Edit:

I can't tell if you're making a spam thread or thread for fun.

Battles » Vapovile's AV Battle Usage Project

@Vapovile:

I'm thinking of another method for this project and making it more user friendly. Plus, the Gdoc is very time consuming. I know a lot of folks forgot to record their projects. I only went out to record battle threads once.

When I posted the April 2014 Anime Vice Community Report, I made a calendar on the spur of the moment for the actual, dominant battle themes. I thought of this old project we had done. I know a few folks supported and made themes that were suggested by our Battlation of the Month users.

Here's my proposal:

After May 1st, I'm going to do an April Battle Highlight Project where we highlight both the user and the battle themes to make it more user friendly. Just a quick tally of how many thread. Hopefully, it doesn't take too long.

  1. Gremmy
  2. Kenpachi
  3. ???

Do some stats like I have done back in the Battle Forum Archive Nov-Dec 2013. This way it help make more achievements for lesser known users. I remember LHWKnight was the one who made the most threads back then.

Don't worry about the Gdoc project. I'm not saying we should shut it done. We should focus on current trends as we saw in our battle community.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Fairy Tail Discussion (Manga)

@katmic:

You should read the manga. Your expectations are oddly strange. Sounds like you want a dark, brooding show for Fairy Tail. That's not what it's about. Rave Master's deceased characters stay dead unlike Dragon Ball Z. You seem to criticize more about Hiro Mashima when you haven't read his other major work from reading your reviews of Fairy Tail and Magi. I haven't seen you criticize the other mangaka to the extent like you have for Hiro Mashima. In your last Magi review, you said Hiro Mashima should have done what Shinobu Ohtaka had done.

I haven't read Monster yet. Hiro Mashima is lucky that he had 2 long Shonen series. Tite Kubo has written Zombie Powder (which was cut short) and Bleach while Kishimoto written two One Shot stories and Naruto.

Pretty much my expectations for Fairy Tail is cut down the use of friendship, make better fights, and deliver a good ending once everything closes.
