We've come quite far and have been through tons of changes through these years, but it's time to reflect on not only our fond memories of both this site (and the old site in case of those that migrated from there), but to also look forward and create an even brighter future for ourselves alongside making things more fun. Happy 3rd Anniversary, you guys!
Had to take care of work first: posting the monthly anime of the month + OP and ED of the month.
I thought we were doing personal shout outs.
Happy anniversary, I love the community and being with everyone. I enjoy wiki editing which got me into Anime Vice. My least favorite section was the vs forum to be honest.
I might have or not thank the wiki editors we had in the old site which could have been 10 years old or so. Some of us have been with the Anime Vice community since 2008.
To the folks who help us tranfer the wiki work: Dekken, Cloudguy, PikaHyper, Yusuke, ForgottenOne, Taichokage, BigHeart711, Demonic13, and DestinyHeroKnight - Thank you again.
I won't get everyone because I'm been either friends, mutual colleague of some degree.
3 years on the new site: I seen folks rising up to the challenge:
Mass - one of the most sincere debaters who promote obscure series
Hungryworld - The community game was pretty fun. You put a lot of your heart and soul into it. I was helping Sonata with the Binbogami references. You help us out. Then, it led to the community game.
Wraith - Been a pleasure watching anime with you from the old site. I remember we first met when KuroNeko and Acura Max were doing reviews on Guilty Crown and Robotic;Notes.
Marshal Victory - share our love of cars and we would share pictures of various cars. He is always friendly. We would also talk about video games on Twitter and in the site. My younger brothers thank you for the gifts.
Terrestrious - Fellow Mecha and Supernatural (CW show) fan - it was great to meet someone who share the love of. It's weird since Supernatural is a small show. We got quite following in Anime Vice. I thank you for getting me into mecha shows. I hope Valvrave and Cross Ange wasn't too bad for you even though the shows kind of fell apart.
jounpraseuth - While we weren't close, we always see each other in the anime discussion threads. It was always cool seeing your thoughts on the episodes week after week.
Whiskers - My friend who got me into yaoi. You were willing to offer ideas to spice up activity in Anime Vice. The OP and ED of the month - I'm still doing it out of respect and love of the community.
Dream - My fellow friend - we been through a lot. It always fun to read your reviews. There is something you thought to comment on and I like miss it. Your thoughts on the anime industry made me get active in the news business. I still remember the Rin Tohsaka bisexual thread and the magical girl yuri stuff we commented on. The community games you came up were fun.
Yusuke - I wouldn't have got into Steam and world of computer games. Wiki editing on Toriko and Bleach - man we were hardcore.
Taichokage - While we weren't buddies in the battle forum, we got in it from the wiki level when we got together on Toriko and other shonen series. You got me into Toriko. I still haven't finished it.
Mastermenos - Best friend, partner in crime. We would support each other in the community. I think we were one of the few who share the love of conventions. While I lack a sense of humor and warmth, you were always bubbly and kind in your jokes. Those funny moments were a blast to read.
Sonata - probably the first person I discuss hentai with in public. I was too shy about it. I actually avoided talking about it. Somehow you pulled me out of closet and with other things I don't feel necessary to say.
I think I know why no one did shout outs. It's too embarrassing.
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.

Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.
Jan 19, 2020 22:50:13 GMT
Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
