Accusing me of dick riding? Hardly. I actually like some Anime. I just think that people who get hot and bothered by an ancient meme (which you just did) make themselves look dumb (which you just did). People say that to rile up people who like anime, and they usually succeed in that regard.

There's been a massive clean-up of that type of content since then.  When it comes to pornographic images, AV is about on par with Giant Bomb now. "

Doesn't bother me. I've seen far worse here on GB. But... most of those were connected to hentai games. Whatever though. Just be mature about it and let it be. Live and let live.

How much of it is killing zombies and how much of it is generic fanservice bullshit? Cause I swear about 99% of the images that people post of that show don't have zombies in em.

Different strokes, different folks.  Don't really see the point of this thread aside from trying to rile anime fans (again) though.
 
Oh, wait.  This is a Jeffsekai thread.

It's actually close to 50-50.
 
I actually don't care much for fan service myself, but in HotD it's so gratuitous, obvious, and shameless, it's actually pretty funny and hard to hate the show for it.

I agree, it wasn't a great anime and definitely not a good one to showcase. Then again i don't think the author would of expected such criticism over one picture.

The whole point of the show is that it is stupid fanservice. It's great.
#111 Posted by MiniPato (2751 posts) -

And on the actual topic, I don't think they posted that image to pander or get page views. There was news about the anime getting a US dub. Could they have used a less suggestive image? Sure, but then again that image is one of the more popular promotional images for that show that I have seen, so it's not that big a deal to me and I think it would be very easy to just pick that picture and go with it without any hidden intentions behind it. It's not as bad as say, Kotaku posting pictures of asian chicks or Gametrailers putting boobs or girls in their video thumbnails whenever the opportunity arises.

It really seems like Whiskey kind of gave up on it; they have no real editorial staff, just freelancers, they're never mentioned in the whiskey family of sites, etc. I could actually see them dropping it quietly at some point because it doesn't seem like anyone cares about it. 
edit- also, as much as I don't like anime, I want to stress that I don't hate on the animevice community itself. I'm sure they're all upstanding people. I just don't understand why you'd want to put something like that up as a footer, especially since i looked at the actual article it linked to and that image has no relevance to the community spolight or whatever. Also, the anime is for jerks thing is tired. Some people think we take it seriously, hell some people do take it seriously, but even those who trot it as a joke, it's getting kind of tired. It also makes us look really bad for "hating" on anime. Basically, if you don't like it, then ignore it. If you like it, then great. Point is, there's no reason to trot out that dumb joke that was played out months if not years ago and isn't even funny anymore.  
That's the one thing that's been nagging me about the community for awhile. The memes and jokes on here are funny, but shit like anime is for jerks and to some extent batmanbatmanbatman just aren't funny anymore, people just say them to get e-cred or whatever and it just seems really immature and annoying now.

I was thinking of watching it, but I know that whenever they flash panties or something in my face, it'll just take me right out of it. But I suppose it depends on what kind of show it is. If it doesn't take itself seriously it might be acceptable. But if it tries to play the zombie outbreak off as grave and serious while having those parts in it, it'd probably ruin it for me.

Sad but true, it's not a problem with the page but with Anime itself. If Anime Vice only dealt with quality stuff they would have even fewer supporters because they would only talk about 5% of releases. I know that joke generalization said by Jeff that "Anime is for jerks" has gotten a lot of spin in GB but I think it remains mostly true. The art/genre itself is not bad but the misogynistic themes that pervade it are. 
 
Also, DBZ is the shit.

@G3RHRT: I think the good to shit ratio on video games narratives is way lower than 5%, though.
 
I'm not much of an anime fan, but I can't deny that as a storytelling medium its much better than videogames!(well, pretty much any thing is, really....)

Anime Vice either needs to die or they should find some people to run it that can actually find the gems that aren't well known to the western audiences so assholes don't think that people that like anime actually suck and that anime can and is a medium that has dignity.  Ones that actually have great stories and wonderful animation instead of just a website that shifts between Bleach, One Piece, Naruto, repeat.

Anime uses the 170% scale because there is always way too much of something going on. Power up scenes, boobs, blood. It actually makes a lot of sense if you don't think about it.

I'm saying that 80% (prolly more like 90% but it was a typo so lets stay consistent) of the show is violence and killing zombies, of that 80%...90% of that is also filled with fanservice. I'm talking pantie shots, bouncing boobs, and butt shots it gets in the way of the combat and the whole show just feels like a softcore hentai.

It's not pathetic, it's a good show, for an anime about zombies when I came into it I thought I would honestly write it off cause usually anime's don't get that right or they do it and it's crap, but this one genuinely is a great anime, if you can't stomach breasts and a little bit of ass then you boy's shouldn't look any any more girls and change your teams~

Since when did I say the need of manly men? If I'm watching anime there is no such thing as manly men.. bishi men.. men that look like girls.. but no manly men.. unless your talking about Armstrong..heh

I have never been to the Anime Vice website, seeing as I don't really like anime.. but just the name kind of entices feelings that the ad represents. Anime Vice.

b. Allow that shit to represent your site at all.

its weird.. i mean who knows, maybe i'll like it if i could see what they like about it. all i see is a sick and sad fucking abomination of the human form..  
though i doubt that i'd like it because its for sick emo-ish kids with a crazy view of life. (amazing how you can counter my claim by calling me a closed minded hater.. the hater-counterattack always works !)
  

anyway, here's my contribution :

Show me the giantbomb article where they had a close up visual of Morrigan's tits, and you have a good analogy. I don't have a problem with the forum people talking about fanservice or roleplaying or talking about who's hot, but having the actual site and authors post up that stuff to represent their site and corporation is a different story.

I think its because the Dragon Age or Mass Effect stuff does not come with a naked picture of Miranda and Morrigan on the cover of a GB news story or on the Whiskey Media banner like some of the Anime Vice stuff.  Nor is that what GB is all about.

Actually High School of the dead is getting by for me.. cause you know.. zombies. I don't see how it reflects negatively on the other sites..at all. I just don't see it. They are ladies who've lost their clothing.. and aren't showing anything but a lot of cleavage. Nothing is showing but a little skin, in fact they are dressed more so than some game character's I've seen..

Show me the giantbomb article where they had a close up visual of Morrigan's tits, and you have a good analogy. I don't have a problem with the forum people talking about fanservice or roleplaying or talking about who's hot, but having the actual site and authors post up that stuff to represent their site and corporation is a different story.

" i always wonder what it is in that shit that its fans enjoy what is it in that disgusting twisted scum cartoons that i cannot see ? why cant i see whats entertaining about it ?  its weird.. i mean who knows, maybe i'll like it if i could see what they like about it. all i see is a sick and sad fucking abomination of the human form..  though i doubt that i'd like it because its for sick emo-ish kids with a crazy view of life. (amazing how you can counter my claim by calling me a closed minded hater.. the hater-counterattack always works !)  anyway, here's my contribution :  hmm i cant find Soulja Boy's "Anime" song anywhere on youtube. what a shame !

You do realize that people who don't play games could make similar arguments about them right?

You're implying that Anime Vice represents itself with sex appeal and I disagree completely. Sex appeal represents the show and Anime Vice is representing the show with its banner image. Like I said, it's a popular promotional image for that show and I can easily see someone using it as a header image without any hidden intentions.
 
Just because Giant Bomb has a Call of Duty banner image doesn't mean it's all about shooters. Just because Comic Vine has Captain America banner image doesn't mean it's all about Marvel or if it had a picture of Power Girl doesn't mean it's all about sex.
