I need someones recommendation in order to fulfill this pls:
» Watch an anime recommended to you by another Anime Watching Challenge participant
I prefer no more than 2-cour

Really dumb thought process working in my brain right now but i'm assuming all the seasonal stuff we manage to complete this year can/may also count towards progress right ?
Just wondering because it's a bit easy considering I watch so much seasonal crap. Not that i'm proud of that since most of it isn't very good at all..

It took me a bit of searching to find something you haven't watched but you should give Deadman Wonderland a try. It's pretty decent.

Alright guys just finished Pupa for the short anime challenge and for the next one I need an ONA. I believe I already have something in mind for that but I'd just like to make Hetalia Axis Powers is an ONA.

Anything that says ONA for type is an ONA.

I believe as long as you started and finished those anime in 2015, you can add them up.

In some cases, it doesn't have to end in 2015, as Kineta has stated here:

Kineta said:
All anime you add to your challenge list must be completed, except for:
 a. Series which are more than two-cours (24+ episodes) in length. For example, let's say you decided to pick up Fairy Tail (2014). It's more than 24+ and still airing, so if you caught up to all released episodes, then you could count this as completed when you turn in your list.
 b. Series which are not longer than two-cours but air beyond the Dec 31 challenge deadline. So say you pick up a Fall 2015 series for your challenge list that is two-cours long. This series won't end until after Dec 31. As long as you are up-to-date with the episodes, you can mark it as completed in Dec.

Can someone give me a recommendation to fill the recommendation one please?

Don't suggest:
- Hentai
- OVAs
- Movies
- Things already on my list (PTW is okay but I'd rather it wasn't that either)
- Sequels, even to things I've already watched

Preferably something that's legally available in the UK but this isn't necessary. Try to pick something you think I would like as well. Failing on this latter front will just mean that I drop/get bored of the series and come back to ask again.

Also preferably 2 cours or fewer in length.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

 » Watch an anime adapted from a manga with a score of 8.0 or higher


The wording is ambiguous so I don't know if it's this one:
Watch an anime rated 8.0 or higher that's adapted from a manga.
OR
Watch an anime rated anything that's adapted from a manga that's rated 8.0 or higher.

I will suggest a few anime that aren't already on your list:

Spice & Wolf 1 + 2 (1 cour each; the merchant life)
Fate/Zero 1 + 2 (1 cour each; many allusions)
Gundam Build Fighters (2 cours; if you like robots)
GochiUsa (1 cour; chill)

I hope one of them strikes your fancy. :)

Along the same lines, I would also like a recommendation for the category
» Watch an anime recommended to you by another Anime Watching Challenge
that is not already on my list. To be picky, I would like to find a series with 20-30 minute episodes that was aired over 1 or 2 cours. Thanks in advance for your help!

No problem, thank you as well! I think Gin no Saji (at least from the summaries) seems to be the most interesting for me to watch. Depending on the circumstances, I will either count the first season alone or both seasons together for that category.

Pick an anime in which at least one of the characters is played by a voice actor you really like and then watch it.

You can look it up on their respective pages on MAL, but here's the info for you (both Japanese and English):
Haruhi Fujioka: JP | EN
Kino: JP | EN
Based on the number of roles, I think you'll have better luck with Haruhi's VAs.

Thanks. I ended up finding using M-U's tag system and going down the line till I got a series I haven't seen. lol, it ended up being Finder. Leave it to fujoshi to rate a yaoi 8.52. It's like not even a real anime too. Barely animated; almost like a motion comic.

Hmm. It seems there may have been some confusion here.

» Watch an early work of an established anime staff member (10+ roles)
I was asked in private if seiyuu would count for this item and was told that some people thought this earlier in the thread. That's actually not correct. By this we really meant Staff credits (separated on People pages and Anime pages from voice acting). Perhaps "10+ positions" would have been better wording than "10+ roles".

So I went to see which random Tv Trope I would get, and lo and behold I got Passion Play. I don't see any anime listed, so does anyone know of any anime at all that could possibly fit this criteria? It's just too amusing how I got this one, I don't wanna give it up if I don't have to.

I have a question concerning the top 300 anime requirement.

If you watch an anime that is, say, rank 250-300ish then falls off the top 300 later on in the year, does it still count? I was planning to watch a show that was previously ranked 296th when the challenge came up, but recently fell off from the top 300 which I presume is due to the winter 2015 season wrapping up.

I believe it has to be within 300 at the time you watch it. If it changes in rank to be below 300 after you finish it, then it doesn't matter. But since you haven't started it at all, then it wouldn't count. Because the goal is to get an anime seen based on opinion of the users right when you start. Not the opinion from the users from a couple weeks ago or even a couple years ago.
Time is your enemy with this. Same with the "Watch an anime with less than 10k/20k/30k completed members (hard/medium/easy)" one and "Watch an anime with a score of 7.0 or below" and "Watch an anime adapted from a manga with a score of 8.0 or higher".
