RAGE OF BAHAMUT #3-4 -- Catch-Up

Murphix kept asking how a blatant cash-grab like this could be so good, and I think the answer’s the same as it was for BLADE & SOUL. The crew’s used the funding to tell a good story, and have cleverly managed the license requirements so they only take up a minimal amount of screen time. Show More Summary

Community Spotlight -- 11/21/2014

Greetings, Anime Vice Community! Tom started this week off by dropping some news about an upcoming DRAGON BALL film, and an interview with yet another anime inspired comic series. He also took a bit of a retrospective on the Tournament Arc in the classic DRAGON BALL to see how it held up. Show More Summary

PSYCHO-PASS 2 #8 -- Watch & Learn

Gamers getting arrested right at in their living rooms for playing violent video games? That’s some awesomely JUDGE DREDD satire there. The show has such a dry and deadpan sense of humor, you can’t always be sure when it’s joking, but damn… was hat scene a stitch. Show More Summary

ATTACK ON TITAN Live-Action Movie Cast Photos

Wall guardsmen have basically become the new Ghostbusters (as far as convention cosplay is concerned). There were so many strutting around Anime Expo this year that the LA convention center would've been thoroughly prepared if Colossal Titan ever spontaneously appeared. Show More Summary

BLEACH Ch. 605 Review

The Soul Society struggles to find their footing after the most recent turn in the war, and Yhwach faces the heavy handed tactics of one of the Zero Squad's best to enter the Reiokyu. The Good Ichibe is like the Babe Ruth of Soul Reapers. Show More Summary

DRAGON BALL -- Does the Tournament Arc Hold Up?

I’ll say this for streaming services like FUNimation’s - - it makes marathoning significantly easier. We always try to keep our nose clean here and not get a show in front of us by… ah… gathering the Dragon Balls. However, when timeShow More Summary

PARASYTE - THE MAXIM #7 -- Watch & Learn

Last week, Wraith pointed hat Parasyte is a bit more Venom than Spider-Man, and that’s absolutely right. After all, a ‘symbiote’ is but a nicer name for a parasite, no? Shinichi’s still more like Peter Parker than Eddie Brock, but the...Show More Summary

ONE PIECE Ch. 767 Review

The value of blood over loyalty is tested for Doflamingo when he discovers the depth of his brother's betrayal. The Good We'll miss you, Rocinante. Although it's pretty much a standard at this point, these emotional ends to ONE PIECE flashbacks can really hit the heartstrings. Show More Summary

WELCOME TO THE NHK #1-3 -- Retro Review

TEXT Watch "Welcome to the Project" and decide for yourself.

PSYCHO-PASS 2 #6 -- Watch & Learn

It’s easy to write villains viewers love to hate. Creating a villain that your audience actually hates, though? That they can’t stand watching for a single moment? That’s the real challenge. So I have to catch myself… when Akane is hesitating on using her assault rifle to blow Kamui away, and I’m actually shouting at the screen. Show More Summary


Murphy talked this show up so much, I just had to check it out for myself. Now, I agree with pretty much everything he already said in his review, so I’ll just offer a few supporting thoughts… The elephant in the room, of course, is that this show’s good despite its origins in mobile gaming (which would almost guarantee badness).

Anime Inspires American Comics -- THE DEVASTATOR

A couple weeks back, we featured the OTAKU issue of the DEVASTATOR on the VICE PIT, and asked you Vicers to recall other projects where anime fans spoofed themselves. Now, we've reached out to Geoffrey Golden, the DEVASTATOR'S editor-in-chief, and asked him to explain this magazine that's put some many dragonflies into the otaku ointment... Show More Summary

New DRAGON BALL Z Movie Announced -- FUKKATSU NO F

One can only hope that FUNimation will stick with the literal ranslation. “F is for Resurrection” is some delightful Engrish - - on level with METAL GEAR SOLID: REVENGEANCE… Yes, that’s the current sub-title. And it turns out that the ‘F’...Show More Summary
