So, you may have noticed my involvement with Anime Vice has lessened since the Sailor Moon facts feature.
The myriad reasons for this are too complicated to get into, but I suppose the simplest explanation is that my other pursuits have pulled me in a different direction. I'm writing on a TV show being produced by Man of Action Studios, the creators of Ben 10 and Big Hero 6. And comics and prose stories I've written are coming from Black Jack Press and from 01 Publishing this Fall. Past that, I have more projects in the works which I can hopefully share soon.
I'm real proud of the videos I got to produce throughout the Summer -- whether it was making One Piece accessible to newcomers or breaking down the thrilling enigma of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. I wish I'd gotten to do more, but there's never enough time to do everything we want.
I already wrote something of farewell message when the site transformed in the Spring, but I'd like to again thank everybody who's stuck with Anime Vice throughout all its mutations. The internet can be a buzzing hive of negativity, and you've managed to build a thoughtful, polite and engaged community here. I'm so glad we had time to find a new home for it, and hope you'll all stick together for a long time to come.
Instead of calling this a farewell, I'd prefer to call it an invitation. Working at Anime Vice has been an unforgettable experience, and I'll be applying everything I've learned here into all my creative work going forward. If you'll follow me in that journey, I'm only as ever far as my Twitter or my Tumblr.

Taka: OH, CRAP! I forgot about that! I'm sure that Anna and Dave also have been co-running the channel, but we have no clue on who will take over as our new shogun! We still must go on here either way and we shall! We've come way too far to give in!
The community will keep running for sure. I'm worried about our other community, Youtube. It's part of us. Plus, Tom as a site personality had connections to the industry. He helped put out Anime Vice community out there. He has really done a lot and promote the community. I always remember this video that promoted the culture of anime and it was a crazy idea I had fun with.
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.

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.

Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.

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.

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.
