Congratulations to HungryWorld for being May 2015's Best Battle User in Anime Vice! Please give him a round of applause. Here is an interview by him.
How did you get into Anime Vice?
Browsing for Madara vs Aizen debates on the internet. Then i found the Anime Vice and after setting aside my shyness i decided to join. I've been here now for just over half a year and i love the community.
What were your favorite type of battle threads?
The first anime i saw were as a kid (there was a series i watched called Samurai Pizza Cats when i was around 4-5 years old but i don't think it completely classifies as anime since well it was based on manga but made in America). When i started elementary (i was about 4 years old) the series pokemon, digimon, yu-gi-oh, DBZ and Shin Chan launched on tv and i watched those, well mainly the first 3 series. I watched the popular anime series that launched on tv during elementary and then went out of anime for about 3-4 years because school got me occupied. I picked up anime back up when i was halfway through middle school when a friend talked me into watching Naruto and Bleach. That was also about when i learned the definition of anime. Since then i haven't stopped watching anime and have now been watching anime on a regular basis for over 5 years, though somethimes i get an enthusiastic period and go watch entire series in a week. I've since also started reading manga, which before i didn't want to because of spoilers.
My favorite type of battle threads are the ones involving Toriko, Fairy Tail and character spotlighting new series. I also do love joke battles as they bring a lot of fun.
What are your proudest achievements in Anime Vice?
My proudest achievements in Anime Vice are: - Getting to know the Vicers and earning their respect and friendship. - Succesfully launching a complete tournament in which everyone had fun. - Winning the Best Battle User of the Month.
My battle theme:
When evil wrecks you - Overpowered villains (as in overpowered in their own verse)
Meruem - I had to make that image into a render since there wasn't as much renders out there. It's not the perfect render since you can still see white jagged edges. There is no original source data on that image.
No problem. I realized I use the wrong logo. I found the right logo from Anime Vice's Google + site. I'll fix that. For the battle theme, I'll help make threads. I probably won't use Aizen since I don't know his character well. Have to do some research on Meruem.
Taka I still gotta make a thread this month besides the tournament threads. Hope people won't get fed up seeing so many threads by the same user :s But i already got my thread for my theme in mind, the others i have in mind are a bit doubtable if i would have to say it myself.
No, it won't be an issue The reason we do monthly themes is to promote underused and obscure shows for more diversity in the battle forums. I know in the past before I started the Best Battle User project, people kept saying our forums were constantly doing HST, DBZ, and Toriko battle threads.
Plus, people will know that you promoting your theme. I ask some folks to help out. I do that to support our folks' battle theme in the past.

Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
