CELESTIAL METHOD #1&2 -- Special Review

I'm pretty sure that this is depicting what this character did for almost 7 straight years. No foolin'. We're checking out all the newest pilots this season! Read our write-ups on other Fall 2014 offerings like... TERRA FORMARS TRIBE...Show More Summary

Community Spotlight 10/24/2014

Greetings, Anime Vice Community! No Vice Pits again this week, but Tom gave us plenty to enjoy in the way of news articles for the front page. On top of the Fall pilot reviews, he brought us the topic of an increase in anime-based clothing, and GURREN LAGANN may be getting a stage play. Show More Summary

BLEACH Ch. 601 Review

Oh-etsu Nimaiya shows Yhwach's Royal Guard no quarter as he takes them to school with a most unique zanpakuto and the skills that earned him his place among the Zero Squad. The Good You know that a guy has high blood pressure when he produces a freakin' fountain. Show More Summary

GUGURE KOKKURI-SAN #1 -- Special Review

We're checking out all the newest pilots this season! Read our write-ups on other Fall 2014 offerings like... TERRA FORMARS TRIBE COOL CREW KAREN SENKI WORLD TRIGGER PSYCHO-PASS 2 WHEN SUPERNATURAL BATTLES BECOME COMMONPLACE YOUShow More Summary

PARASYTE - THE MAXIM #2 -- Watch & Learn

Murphix talked this up so much, I really had to check it out for myself - - pulling a two-fer on the first couple episodes - - and holy shit, did it not disappoint. The show evokes the body horrors of David Cronenberg, Clive Barker and...Show More Summary

GURREN LAGANN... the Stage Play?!?!

The most amusing detail in all this is the theater company promising that "the play will present new material that 'wasn't able to be presented' in the original television anime series." That has to translate to "longer dialogue scenes," because I don't see how they'll be able to present most of any actual material from the show. Show More Summary

NARUTO Ch. 696 Review

You know it must be true, because he said it. Naruto may be looking for a fair fight in this grand rematch, but Sasuke only wants his friend's life. The Good Don't ruin this with words. You know, when this chapter focuses on the action and I sort of ignore what they're saying, this all isn't so bad. Show More Summary

IS ANIME-INSPIRED CLOTHING ON THE RISE?

It seems that Nike is teaming up with mangaka Takehiko Inoue to bring us some sweet new swag based on his mega-hit manga SLAM DUNK. The “Jordan X ‘SLAM DUNK’ Collection” includes two pairs of kicks brandished with art from the series, allowing you to channel both His Airness and SLAM DUNK’s Hanamichi Sakuragi. Show More Summary

PSYCHO-PASS 2 #2 -- Watch & Learn

We loved to make fun of anime characters having crazy hair, but between this and ATTACK ON TITAN, I’ve come to see the very pragmatic purpose of shocked-up feathering, and neon pink dye-jobs. If this were live-action, there’d be any number...Show More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 764 Review

Rocinante's secrets are brought to light, and what follows is quest to save the young Trafalgar's life and soul from becoming just like his brother, Doflamingo. The Good But what does the D stand for? The chapter is full of classic personality and plot. Show More Summary

So... What Ripped Off DRAGON BALL?

Part of the fun of revisiting these classic series lies in me getting a better sense of the context they were created in. A lot of times, you’ll feel like a certain show is old, and it’s simply because you grew up with it. You’ll watch...Show More Summary

ONE PIECE #666 -- Special Review

You know, I’m not going to fault a show for… reaching like this when it has to put a new episode out every week. That’s just the nature of the beast, and the reason why TV shows are broken up into ‘seasons’ in the first place. To be good, staffs can only put episodes out weekly for a season or two a year, at most. Show More Summary

PSYCHO-PASS 2 #1 -- Special Review

We're checking out all the newest pilots this season! Read our write-ups on other Fall 2014 offerings like... TERRA FORMARS TRIBE COOL CREW KAREN SENKI WORLD TRIGGER PARASYTE Oooh… I haven’t been this genuinely excited over one given episode in a good, long while. Show More Summary

NARUTO Ch. 695 Review

This is the battle to finally end their life-long rivalry, but one of them isn't taking it as seriously as he should. The Good The story may have lost me, but this chapter at least delivers some really cool visuals in this action. The battle may feel like a repeat, but at least the scale of these giant energy creatures gives them some added spice. Show More Summary

Pick Anime Vice's Most Rockin' AMV! Part 4: Halloween

Welcome everyone to the fourth AMV Tournament!!! Thank you guys again for always supporting this idea and speaking of ideas, it's time to reveal the new theme for this AMV Tournament. Since Halloween is coming up i figure I might as well do a theme that reflects this upcoming holiday. Show More Summary

ONE PIECE #665 – Watch & Learn

Since it’s always fun to compare/contrast major shonen, I’ve got to reiterate my amusement over Oda’s most likely source of inspiration here. Toriyama watches SUPERMAN II and gets the idea for the Saiyans. Araki catches CHILD’S PLAY, VIDEODROME and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST. Show More Summary

BLEACH Ch. 599 Review

With his best defense ripped to shreds by Senjumaru, Yhwach is forced to reveal his own royal guard to defend him from the Soul King'sforces. The Good When did Hawkman start appearing in manga? I have to say that I'm very happy that Mr. Show More Summary
