Congratulations to Audioninja for being our best battle user of November 2015! Here is his interview where you get to know him better.
How did you get into Anime Vice?
I was looking for Toriko battle threads and noticed a great amount of them came from here (back when we were on the old vice) while searching on google. So then I decided to join.
How did you get into anime? What were some of your first anime series?
Well pre-animefication I thought I hated the medium as I thought it was all magical girls and Naruto even though some of my favorite shows beforehand were anime such as Kirby right back at Ya with I even watched in subs and Sonic X. Time went on and when I was twelve years old I was facing a crisis I had thought that I was growing too old for cartoons and hadn't really found most live action material besides martial arts movies very entertaining. My raging hormones brought me to an ecchi anime called Dragonauts or something like that. After two episodes I stopped watching it for the unrealistically large bosoms and was watching it for the freakin space dragons it had it which were the coolest thing since Chuck Norris for my small pre-adolescent mind. Though I hate ecchi anime now go figure. Anyways I had found my replacement for the mass media gap in my heart. I experimented with genres and had made up my mind when I had binged all of One Piece for three weeks (I don't remember how many episodes it had at the time as it had been some years). That I had liked shonen and battle anime the best which is the reason I read/watch so much today.
What were your favorite type of battle threads?
Those with debates that end up being really long and detailed. Also the manly ones.
What are your proudest achievements in Anime Vice?
Audioninja: "I make that dank thread"

Taka: I'll be back later tonight. Hopefully, my internet will get better and stay stable. It's randomly disconnecting.

Old Man Dream: Something I hate doing when I had initially promised, but having second thoughts on the Pixar movie viewing I promised. Four months going through the retrospective has me itching to want to dabble back into older anime titles again.

Old Man Dream: Yeah, sorry guys. But I'm reneging on this. Been immersed enough in Disney the past four months and want to get back deep into things with anime. Maybe down the line, I'll do a Pixar retrospective if I have enough a case of anime burnout. But back to anime

Taka: Ok, my involvement with the Index Collab has finally concluded. Thank you and hopefully, we get more new members joining the site.

Taka: I was going to work on the simulcast guide. Getting internet problems again.

Taka: I'm not sure when to do the seasonal derby for Winter 2021 since Netflix or other companies might pop up a new anime.

Old Man Dream: Guess even with Weathering with You, Shinkai's still dabbling into his typical storytelling involving long-distance relationships, at least when it comes to Hina and Hodaka's circumstances. Only about an hour into the film thus far.

Old Man Dream: Hmmmmm.... And can't believe I'm saying this with my indifference for both: Your Name > Weathering With You.
Jan 16, 2021 18:32:40 GMT
Old Man Dream: Done with the film. Think there's enough with this where I can put a review together. Expect something up sometime later today.
Jan 16, 2021 19:19:02 GMT
Taka: Planning to watch Weathering with You. I don't remember if I watched all of the older Shinkai films. There is a shift from the sad romance to happier romance if I'm not mistaken.

Taka: Watching the Maleficent live action movie.
