Hi, I've got a question about the 2016 anime watching challenge. You said ongoing shows cannot be used unless they are still airing after Dec 31st or if they are longer than two cours. Do you mean December 31st of 2016 or 2015? Thanks~

So I watch an anime in which the director, from one of my favorite anime, is directing another series?


Yup, last year I think it was worded more open ended, but this year it seems to be the position.

I think that meant shows that you are already watching. So Fall season carryover

Which I think is cheating either way. but that seems to be what it means.

There are a few anime I'm using for the challenge that I started watching in 2015 (Shirobako which I completed the day before starting the challenge and FMA 03 which I'm still watching). These would still be fair game, right?

I would say the person needs to have the same role as in your favourite or else it kind of defeats the purpose to choose the same person again.

The way I interpret it, you can only use two cour anime from Fall 2015 for this challenge and only if you have watched all episodes that came out in 2015. All anime that aired in earlier seasons cannot be carried over.

Ok, I ran into another problem. Need help with this:

Watch an anime with a target demographic that does not apply to you

I never think about those things so I don't know much about genres. I'm a 19 year old female. I know there's shounen that doesn't apply to me. Can any of you guys list the genres that don't apply to me please? Would really appreciate it.

Aside from Shounen? Seinen, Κodomomuke and possibly Josei since you are not 20+ yet.

Forgot I had a question as well. For the 3 cour challenge: Are split cours allowed? So e.g. Durarara S2 aired as 3 split cours. If I watch all three do they count here?


If we are going by the same rules as last year, no. You have to watch an anime with and and and episode count of (around) 39 in a single DB entry. Since Durarara! is split up entries they do not count.


That sucks but thanks.

Also doesn't really make sense to me. It will be difficult to find those in a few years as well because studios go with split cours more and more...

Then I guess the challenges will adapt to the times.

You can add an anime that fits two categories but may only use it for one. This year there are no restrictions on using related series so if an anime you watched, for example, won an award and was a fantasy anime then you may watch the OVA for the genre challenge if it has one.

And recommendations please. Any genre will do except hentai and cars.

This is the TVTropes site. At the top of the page you will see two buttons that show dice with a word after them. Click the one that says "trope". Scroll down the page and if it has anime examples then you are supposed to choose one to watch for the challenge. If there are no anime examples of the trope or none of the anime examples interest you then you may click the button at the top again for another trope.

Ah, gotcha. Thank you for your quick answers and recommendations. :)


Actually, it is more often refered to the length of a given series and that's also the meaning here. Lets say an anime has 25 episodes and ran during spring and summer season, it's runtime is "2 cours" as it stretched over two of the conventional seasons.

I don't see how my post meant something else? I simply explained what a "cour" is. People that chose the hard challenge, will need to watch something that run during 3 cours at least. So 9 months from start to finish. This is what I understood at least.

The way I interpret it, you can only use two cour anime from Fall 2015 for this challenge and only if you have watched all episodes that came out in 2015. All anime that aired in earlier seasons cannot be carried over.


About this. Ongoing shows after December 31, 2016. That means that, let's say for example. If we arrive at the end of the year and you plan to use an ongoing show (airing in December 2016), that show must continue airing in 2017 too. Anime from Fall 2015 can't be used unless you started them on January 2016.

I will reword that on the challenge post...

It might be a pretty dumb question but when you say "watch an anime that aired between 1981 and 1990" or "watch a horror anime" etc. does it have to be a tv anime or can it also be a movie, ova... ? :)

Does a mention of Anime in the list include movies? Or is that restricted to questions which explicitly say movies in the question?

Any type can be used.


Thank you! :D

If someone could suggest me an anime for the challenge, that would be great ! :) I'd prefer a 1 or 2 cours anime :) :)

Two suggestions needed please.

Firstly - any recommendation just to fulfill the "Watch an anime recommended to you by another user" challenge. Any would be fine, so long as I haven't already seen it :P

Secondly - any recommendations for an anime that's been seen by under 10k people / less than 10k completed members ?
Preferably not one that's actually garbage.

Thanks.

That would be cheating, they're there for a bonus but fall under the same rules as the main list. Excluding the on hold challenge.
