Wow. I can't believe anime vice outlived any of the other sites closing.
I can't believe people are still surprised by this. Despite being treated like the redheaded stepchild by Whiskey Media, Anime Vice got and still gets a good flow of traffic, even if the majority of the forum traffic is dedicated to battle threads and the like.
I loved anime vice. But once they got rid of John and Gia I left and never went back. When I tried to check in it was always terrible. I don't care for the Tom guy they replace them with. I just found him boring and uninteresting.
