@Jeffsekai: Maybe it was taking the piss out of the anime stereotype. Have you thought about that angle?

" 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. "
Oh Jeffsekai, you always be trollin' on Giant Bomb. I agree with what Hallinel has been bringing up about the lethal double standard that exists on Giant Bomb. It's easier to overlook because graphic images usually don't accompany these things here, but the content is similar, and since Anime Vice is one hundred percent community run, puts it on the same playing field as the Giant Bomb user content. And beside, has anybody bothered to read that post? It's a simple wiki update. Have you listened to the GDC'11 podcasts talking about dildos and gay masturbation jokes and shit? This is the fucking Bulletstorm fiasco all over again, about how people, "aren't thirteen years old anymore, durhurr." Seriously, shut the hell up of pandering to the lowest common denominator. You don't know what the hell you're talking about, and you can take your bullshit double standard and shove it up your twenty year-old tight virgin ass. "
Again, I love everything I do being labeled as a "troll" I posted this thread because the footer at the bottom of the page is disgusting not to make all the anime fans rage and get all pissy if I wanted to do that I would have posted it on Anime Vice and it would have said anime is for jerks in the title.   Again...and please fucking read this. I do not have a problem with anime, or at the end of the day do I have a problem with Anime Vice as a whole, but what I have a problem with is them using that image to depict a community update, if the article was only talking about High School of the Dead then you know what I prolly would have been fine with it. But it is about the community accomplishments, and they are using that image to get clicks, and at the same time they are painting the community of Anime Vice as people who like that image and think it's something that represents them. This is not about trolling. Once again I will cite the Cathrine box art, that is the Box Art of the game giantbomb has to show it, and they have already stated many times how weird it is for it to be that but they have to post it, they can't censor the box art that's dumb. If they were posting fan art or something that was worse then the box art then sure it would be bad. Finally, with BulletStorm if every article of BulletStorm had a picture of a dick as the main image it would be the same thing. "
Word. I love how they call you a troll just because you post contrary opinions. I know it doesn't mean much since I agree with you but I feel like a lot of people came in here with the title and just made assumptions.

ummm still not sure what you mean, but if you mean that the people that made the High School of the Dead did it to be clever or prove a point. Someone already pointed out that they made High School of the Dead the way they did to appeal to horny 14 yr olds. So you're right they did it on purpose, just not ironically.

Can't say anything playfully around here huh? You hate Highschool of the dead because of the fanservice, fanservice you can't seem to get past to see a pretty decent story under it, that is my opinion. If you like dudes or chicks makes no difference to me. I like the breasts, i liked the fanservice and I liked the story, we have different tastes in anime.. I've never watched Elfen Lied so I can give no opinion on that.
 
@DystopiaX: Image is an image in any case.. long message is long. But it's what AV decided to put up as an image, and will continue to do so. You admitted yourself they still mentioned highschool of the dead, so, image is valid. They brought the attention that HSotD is getting a Dub, it's relevant.
 
EDIT: Also they are talking about Wiki overhaul which HSotD was part of, so image is relevant.

I'm not trying to be rude, but doesn't that kind of make you an ignorant idiot by just making assumptions based on some popular crap you saw? That's like saying I think Britney Spears is an awful vocalist, so obviously all music groups suck. That seems kind of dumb, doesn't it? Just let that sit in your mind for a minute before you respond.

I'm not an anime fan, I've never watched a single series but all the anime haters in this topic are sounding like idiots.

@Napalm: No, as I have said, it means that whenever I have gone to look for something new to watch all I have ever found were the kind of shows I mentioned above, and that's all people ever recommended to me when I would ask what are some good anime to have come out in the last few years. I have no interest in watching stuff like that, but since you apparently have your thumb on the pulse of all that is great in anime point me to something that has come out recently that isn't anything like that and I will happily watch it.

#215 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

Funny enough, I just looked up two threads on Giant Bomb today that discussed if Anime Vice was dead and the supposed "red headed stepchild" of the Whiskey Media family. 
Now I know my answer. But of course, we're talking about the Giant Bomb community, the most stagnant and stubborn of all communities.

From what I gather, if it's not on Giant Bomb then it's not cool. And almost everyone on GB see's anime just like Boxxy. If you don't like, it you're not cool. If you do like it, you're not cool. 
 
Wait a sec... why the hell did I bring Boxxy into this. Motha fucker.

goodness really? How is that? Your the one that brought up Elfen Lied not I. Also I said I've never watched, but I know what it is, gory anime about a red headed girl with cat ears whom has psychic powers to a certain extent that was blocked by the helmet on her head.
#220 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

Ya it's pretty stupid stuff. I like some anime but seeing shit like that from anime vice, just turns me off on the idea of touching that site. At least it's at the very bottom of a page.

I brought it up to so to have an analog to show what is an example of an Anime with class and an Anime that does it wrong and only does it for fan service. If you havn't seen the anime, my argument won't work because you don't know how the boobs are depicted in the show and how the naked girl is not the focus.
#222 Posted by Xeiphyer (5604 posts) -

Its the same as Giantbomb showing some guy from a FPS, I'm sure other people complain about that too. Its the demographics. 
 
You aren't Anime Vice's demographic, so the picture doesn't work for you. Most anime fans know that boobs are a pretty big staple of most animes, so that picture isn't exactly a surprise. Plus, if you read the tagline you will find out its also a joke, a play on the norms and expectations of anime. 
 
Plus, considering the state of Anime Vice, them trying to get more clicks and viewers isn't a horrible thing. 
 
Its not pandering when that is content that the community wants to see, thats just meeting consumer demand. Its like saying when GB shows off videogames its pandering because we love videogames. If anything, its pandering when GB shows off the guys doing silly things. Thats not about videogames but is just doing it to get more views and to please the audience.

Bottom line is that if you don't like it, don't look at it. Nobody is forcing you to. Making a topic is even dumber. They are just drawn breasts, don't freak out. I know breasts scare you, but one day you are going to have to come to terms with that and either come out of the closet or accept that other men like seeing them and find a way to cope.

I think people are taking this to far but to someone who has no idea what Highschool of the dead is it looks like a naked picture for no reason especially where it is only mentioned in one sentence.  Where as on the Catherine thing it was box art that confirmed an American release attached to an article about a Catherine release.   

Proto-NA Catherine Site

 We are not talking about the difference in community in association of the banner but those who run the website which in Anime Vice's case seems to be the forum.  And you keep comparing this to Mass Effect to which there is no comparison given the conversation since we are not talking about the threads people make but what the articles and headlines associated with a website are.  There is no problem with breasts in any medium nor are the people arguing having a problem with breasts except for the way a website uses them.

Controversy! Uproar!
#226 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3091 posts) -

Hey guys, some anime like to show boobs a lot.  The caption on Anime Vice is a joke about that.  It's not a great show, since they felt the need to throw in about 10 times more fanservice than the manga had, and it's not even very well done.  But hey, there are fans who like that.  There are also people on Giant Bomb who don't mind Bulletstorm being one long stream of naughty words trying desperately to be funny.  We don't have to agre with them, but let's not all be assholes about it.
@crusader8463:
Baccano and Durarara are both done by the same group, and they're pretty awesome with next to no fanservice contained therein.  They're also two of the most hyped and popular anime I've heard about in recent years.  There's actually a pretty nice feature where you can watch Baccano free and legal on the main page of Animevice.  Maybe give them a shot and see if they're your thing.  You can't just glance at the first thing on a page and decide the whole batch of anime is crap because of it.

" I really can't believe how many people are riled up by that image. Are you guys worried some saavy entrepreneur will see Whiskey Media as a family of Nerd sites? NEWFLASH, WE GOT A GAMING SITE A COMIC SITE A TECH SITE AND A MOVIE SITE. If you think Anime Vice is what people need to see to finally decide Whiskey Media is full of nerds, you need some serious rethinking. "
It's not about the nerd part, it's the fact that you're flashing tits up everywhere to represent an article and site where that' not necessarily the most relevant. "
That's it?! That's all you're worried about? Making sure the picture is relevant to the article and not worried about how Anime Vice represents Whiskey Media...oh wait.
 
 @DystopiaX said:

showing but a little skin, in fact they are dressed more so than some game character's I've seen.. "It reflects negatively on other sites because Whiskey media is frequently branded as a family of sites- that's why we see shit like the happy hour, the whiskey media website talks about all the sites in conjunction, etc. While some users just use one site or another, the multi-pass and Happy hour are just indications that they cross paths a lot, especially with podcast and video guesting. While this doesn't really affect anything from a user standpoint i'm sure advertisers look at this shit and see animevice tits all over the place and may be turned off. Basically, like it or not every site bleeds into the other, etc.  also, the chick on the right has no top and is covering herself with her arm. Show me that shit in videogames. Also, the 1-2 minutes I watched had the girls tits bouncing everywhere, which only really happens in DoA, and even that is ridiculed by the gaming community as a whole. The only time I've seen that level of panty-flashing in games is when Jeff was playing Galgun, and even then they made creeper jokes on the Happy Hour because that shit is atypical for games. "

 @DystopiaX said:

@MiniPato: Again,   that article the image doesn't represent what it's about. You're arguing that it doesn't matter what it's used for, the image would be up regardless- I'd have a problem with that no matter what it is for. It's slightly less offensive if used for Highschool of the Dead yes, but at the same time you could do just as well with a nonsexual image. It's like if you're hosting a discussion about murder. Would an image of a disemboweled person be topical? Yeah, but it doesn't mean that it would be tasteful or wise to use that picture as an advertisement for what you are doing.
  
HS of the Dead got ONE sentence in that article, and it wasn't the main point. It's as if I was writing about the American Legal system and then titling the paper as if to suggest it's only about tax law; sure that's part of the subject, but that's not really what the article is about. If the article featured was "Hey HS of the Dead is getting a dub!" then an HS of the dead image would be relevant (and even then I'd keep it tasteful, no need for that shit), but since the main body of the article is about wiki points and cool shit the community has done this is in no way relevant. "
And what would be a fitting image I ask you again? Just because it isn't ALL about HoTD doesn't mean it isn't at all. The article is an all encompassing one that it would be difficult to find just one thing to represent it. It mentions HoTD, it mentioned one of the breaking news articles so why NOT use an image of it? Do you see what's on in the Community Spotlights on screened? Usually a video of something funny or something or another.  I'm not saying to be all out disgusting, but why should they go out of their way to be "tasteful" if it's"not about the nerd part." Should Giant Bomb not post pictures of dudes getting shot just to be tasteful? Why does it matter?

I don't know why, it's a drawing.  But, still, maybe this is what they want out of their website.

#233 Posted by DystopiaX (5310 posts) -
@MiniPato: Because while you may understand it's part of the content, other people who have no idea what that anime is won't? also because 1 sentence in an article does not equal relevant. I also have no problem with the Screened people doing that, but making your community out to be a bunch of horny 14-year-olds that enjoy staring at cartoon boobs is not only not relevant, it's insulting and distasteful.
@Catolf:     Not it's not...1 sentence in the article is not relevant. I could rehash all my arguments again but at this point we'd both be saying the same things so I'm done.

Just to be clear, I'm not hating on AV, I just think that image is a poor choice given that the article is supposed to represent what the community is about, which, as everyone here seems to want to tell me, is not all about tits.

it's relevant to the fact that some wiki and that the HSotD dub will be coming soon along with DVD release. But I do think it goes witht he joke at the bottom along with a little catering, so I doubt your far off.

I don't like half the stuff Comicvine puts up but I'm not gonna make a topic on another Whiskey site just to complain about it. The OP is an idiot.

I know there must be something out there that isn't like that, but the only shows I ever hear people talking about, or get any kind of promotion online, are shows that are like that, and I don't care enough to try and hunt down the one or two exceptions that do something different. "
Like I said, taking what people give you and complain it's all the same. You need to go discover anime based on the type of the stuff you like. I've discovered I really like science fiction type anime. Appleseed Ex Machina is a recent example of fantastic anime. Well, now that I think about it, it's not technically anime since it's computer generated, but the general anime principles are still layered in there.

That video has been up for a while. "
It was posted 3 hrs after the spotlight and (more importantly) the ad area doesn't update immediately.
