| |

Welcome to the 2nd week of March's Blu-Ray and DVD releases! This week, I find a lot of familiar shows: Accel World, Psycho-Pass, Digimon, and Pet Girl of Sakurasou. I'm definitely looking forward to Pet Girl of Sakurasou and Psycho-Pass. Any fan of Gen Urobuchi or fans of Sci-Fi/Crime would love Psycho-Pass. It's a gritty, dark series with plenty of action and drama. It was a powerful show that makes you think about society and its justice system. For slice of fan and romance fans, you should check out Pet Girl of Sakurasou. It's a character driven show where you see these high school students in struggle for their dreams and finding love at the same time.

I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release.

Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all-powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all.

The care and feeding of a pet girl is something only those with the most dogged determination should attempt, but Sorata Kanda never really had a choice in the matter. Tasked with keeping the acclaimed but highly dysfunctional and unfocused artist Mashiro Shiina from forgetting to eat, brush her hair, or wear clothes, it's been a long, slow battle to get to the point where he's reached a general understanding of her extreme quirks. Which doesn't mean that Mashiro doesn't still walk out of the dorm half-naked. It's just that Sorata now understands that it's going to happen.

Unfortunately, the whys, wherefores, and how-tos of comprehending the opposite sex aren't going so well on other fronts. Misaki's attempts to escalate her campaign to win Jin's affections take a disastrous turn, and Nanami's going to have to learn to come to terms with her feelings for Sorata while adjusting to the third wheel that is Mashiro. And then there's still Sorata's "problem" of picking up cats that he's not supposed to keep.

Contains episodes 13-24. Special Features: Japanese CD Spots, Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation.

Welcome everyone! This is an update for all the wiki projects I did with my teammates. The last update was for Fall 2012 where I took a few projects since I had school work. Everything is listed in alphabetical order, and I discussed about a few things such as what was done, what needs to finished, and any contributions done by my teammates and I.

Btooom! (Solo)

Start Date: Oct. 6, 2012

Episode Summaries Completion Date: Dec. 22, 2012

Character Progress: 3characters out of the entire roster have more than creations filled out

It had 12 episodes, and I completed their summaries. The only left is to find some good quotes and attack table because I haven't applied Daniel's new wiki style from the Fairy Tail wiki page. For characters, I haven't complete them, and most of them just have creation section added. Himiko and Miho wiki pages are the ones that have the most info.

Also, I have been working at Btooom! Wikia because of a user who plagiarized by copying and pasting my summaries over there. I had rewritten summaries over there, and I only have 3 episodes left along with 2 snapshot galleries left to create.

Please see Anime Project Blog and Btooom! Wikia's Wiki Progress Report.

Fairy Tail (Team)

Start Date: October 2010

Episodes Progress: Approximately 75%

character Progress: Approximately 75%.

This is the oldest wiki project, and it had the biggest coalition of wiki editors. I had a great team, but sadly, they all retired except for Daniel, Obsidian609, and me. Though, Wales come by from time to time to help out on the manga project.

The strange thing about this project was its allure. There were lots of new wiki editors in Anime Vice that pop up once in a while. They would add images to the character pages. What they don't know is that Anna and I upload the screen caps. Since Fairy Tail has an enormous character roster, it's a nightmare to transfer images to each character week after week. I hate to delete their images. This year, I think the series will end because the anime has caught up to the manga. If they do another filler arc, it's going to be a challenge to enjoy it. The last one wasn't that great. I wouldn't mind if Fairy Tail anime takes a hiatus. A break would be good for the staff and the Wiki community.

Wiki Progress: Most of the characters are filled out except for the new ones from Tenrou Island arc and above along with some minor characters. In the episode summary department, I haven't checked, but I think we started working on every summary from the late 60's. However, we did skipped some. Same goes for volume.

It will take a lot of man power to finish Fairy Tail.

Please see Fairy Tail Recognition Blogs for Animevice users for a full history on most of the wiki editors.

K (Team)

Start Date: 11-9-12

Episode Progress:Episodes 1-10 are completed.

Character Progress:The Homura Clan characters, Mikoto Suoh, Izumo, Anna Kushina, Misaki Yata, Rikio Kamamoto, and Tatara Totsuka, are completed.

My teammates were Beelze17 and Aleasha. Beelze17 was a character specialist who deals with the Homura Clan characters. She did an excellent work on them, but she needs help with grammar which I help her with. Aleasha was a franchise specialist who uploaded the episode screenshots and did an awesome job on the franchise page. I was the episode specialist, and I was tasked to take care of SCEPTER4 characters. I finished 10 episode summaries and only have 3 left. It should be done soon if I didn't have so much other wiki projects on my hands.

See Wiki Project -- K.

Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic (Solo)

Start Date: Oct. 10, 2012

Episode Progress: All episodes up to 16.

character Progress: Only Aladdin, Alibaba, Morgiana, and Kassim pages are mostly completed with the exceptions of story arcs.

Annabanana used to work on the manga series, and when I saw it had an anime adaptation, I was stoked about it. Unfortunately, Anna wasn't active anymore. I tried the series with my younger siblings, and we got hooked. I have been working on the episode summaries. One of my struggles was the names and making it consistent. An example would be Kassim because it can be spelled Cassim or Kasshim. I wasn't sure what to use, and I use Magi Wikia's reference.

Speaking of Magi Wikia, I also worked over there to help with the plot summaries because my plot summaries were pasted over there. I hope the community gets more wiki editors because most of them avoid writing plot summaries except for one editor. He and I talked about the possibilities of working together. Though, he didn't have enough time to commit himself.

See Wiki Project -- Magi the Labyrinth of Magic

Pet Girl of Sakurasou (Team)

Start Date: 1-29-13 (for me since Daniel Newton and Aleasha started working on the project in fall 2012).

Episode Progress: Episodes 1-4 and 9-12 are completed.

Character Progress: Some of the main cast have empty pages while the new ones have creation sections.

Daniel Newton was the first guy to start the project, and Aleasha joined in. She did the franchise page while Daniel did the anime series page. Daniel started prepping the episode wiki pages. Right now, I did all the episodes up to 12 except for 5 - 8. If I got hooked on the anime sooner back in winter break, I would have got the summaries done up to the latest one. It's all right because I'll catch up.

Besides the wiki work, the discussion thread is going well.

Robotics;Notes (Team)

Start Date: Oct. 20, 2012

Episode Progress: Episodes 1-13 are completed.

Character Progress: All characters have creation section, and the main cast have evolution sections written to some extent.

Robotic;Notes

My partner was Acura Max, a Screened mod. We did plot summaries together. I worked on the odd episodes while he did even. We both work on the characters and everything else. Our teamwork was pretty strong. I haven't had the same experience like this since Guilty Crown, Sket Dance, and Fairy Tail. It's a thrilling feeling when you have a close friend or two working with you.

For wiki progress, we had done every episodes except 14 and 15, but we're on the ball. Plus, it was tough to juggle school work and other things. In the character department, we got the main characters' evolution sections filled out and every minor character added along with their creation sections.

For a detailed list of contributions, please see Robotics;Notes Wiki Vitae list.

Rock Lee and His Ninja Pals (Solo)

Start Date: April 14, 2012

This was a strange wiki project because I don't do summaries. All I did was add characters, screen caps, and associations. I wished the discussion thread was active, but I guessed Anime Vice doesn't have a big fan base for this series.

Sket Dance (Team)

Start Date: August 18, 2011

Episode Progress: Episodes 1-10, 12-14, 16, 19, 21-37, and 39-77 are completed.

Character Progress: The three main characters have most of their sections completed except for story arcs which is difficult since the anime is a bit episodic. Minor characters such as Momoka, Masafumi, and Sawa are almost completed.

It's one of the longest wiki projects I have done, and it has one of the biggest teams called W.I.K.I. Nation. Ever since the anime has finished its run in August 27, 2012, my team and I completed every episode except 11, 15, 17, 18, 20, and 38. Around episode 40, my teammates were stressed from school, work, and family, so I was the only one left to continue the project. It has been difficult, but it was worth it.

Around February 2012, I started working at Sket Dance Wikia. I didn't check what episodes were complete, but I know we completed short summaries for every episode from February and onward. Like Btooom! Wikia, I have a lot of episode image galleries to create.

For Anime Vice, characters needed work. Since I'm more of an episode specialist, I neglected to update the characters and their image galleries. For Sket Dance Wikia, the main characters and a minor character, Enigman, are pretty filled out well.

Please see Sket Dance Wikia's 2012 Wiki Archive, and it has the winter months because I usually write wiki progress on the weekly reviews for new episodes.

Sword Art Online - Solo

Start Date: July 16, 2012

Episode Completion Date: 12-24-12 (Based on the snapshot from the Sword Art Online discussion thread)

Character Progress: Every character has a creation section written. Kirito's page is completed while the others need to have evolution sections.

It was a good anime series that was popular in the community, and it was one of the few projects that used the discussion threads. I had done weekly reports for it, but I was burnt out. Despite being a solo project for episode summaries, I had help from my friends who work on other parts.

SAO Editors

  • There was a wiki editor, AnimeReviewDaily, and he was more of a character specialist. With his help, Kirito's page was the most developed one. I had to work on Asuna and the others' wiki pages. I didn't make much progress due to time.
  • For the franchise page, Buhssuht did an awesome job on it.
  • In the image department, Daniel and Sonata whipped some cool profile portraits. Also, UsaChanMan uploaded HI RES magazine art, Acura Max uploaded merchandise snap shots, and ShadowKnight508 uploaded some cool shots.

I thank them for their hard work.

Tamako Market (Solo)

Start Date: January, 28 2013

Episode Progress: Episodes 4 is completed.

Character Progress: All characters have creation sections. Just need to add evolution, story arcs, and origin.

I haven't done much except for one plot summary. I'm still in the progress of setting things up and adding all the characters.

Valkyria Chronicles (Solo)

Start Date: January, 7 2013

Episode Progress: Episodes 1-8, 13-20, and 21-23 are completed.

Character Progress:Not all characters have creation sections. All of them need to have evolution section. Story arcs is not needed for some of them due to how minor their role are.

After buying the game in December 2012 for my little sister, I was interested in the anime. Like most video game based anime adaptations, this anime series was average because it missed a few things and changed some of the characters' such as Welkin.

For wiki progress, I had finished adding all characters. Being burnt out, I don't do full summaries. Instead, I did short summaries and uploaded snapshots from RC.

This is all the wiki projects I have worked on. It's been a challenge, but I managed to pull through thanks to my teammates and the wonderful people in Anime Vice and Wikia Communities.
