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.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
