NEWSLETTER #1
September 15th, 2016

Hello, and welcome to the Anime Watching Challenge Club Newsletter!

Haven't signed up for our newsletter yet? Join today!

Club Updates

🎉 We have finally reached 1,000 members in the club! 🎉
Thank you all for joining!

The Hi-Score Challenge will now contribute towards the Hall of Fame!
At the beginning of each batch, levels will be checked and points will be awarded if you have reached a new level. Each level section (ex. Level 11 to 15) will grant 0.5 points.

The points awarded for Collections are going to be adjusted.
Points will now be rewarded based on the total number of episodes the collection has rather than the average which is not as good a representation.
Going by episode total gives a closer estimate of how hard the collection really is
(with the known exception of short episodes... but this gets it as close as we can lol).
000 - 150 => 0.5 ; 151 - 250 => 1.0 ; 251 - 400 => 1.5 ; 401+ => 2
This should go into effect soon after this newsletter's publication.

A Staff thread has been created.
It will inform club members on who the staff are, their roles, and any open positions for those interested.
Of course, the newsletter will also include any future major updates.

New staff members : Newsletter Editors!
Kreyul and Jhiday will be putting together the newsletters from now on.

New staff member : the Updator!
abystoma2 will help out with keeping all the challenges up to date.

New staff members : the Inspectors!
They will check the challenge turn-in forms for anything wrong.
Punkero will deal with odd-numbered posts, AYOSHINA with the even-numbered ones, and Kreyul act as their backup.

Beginners' Guide #1

With 84 core challenges, 47 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

You May Have Already Completed This #1 : the Easy Genre Challenges

Did you know ? A good number of the genre-based challenges (Magical, Slice-of-Life, Historical, Horror and Mystery) allow you to use any anime you have previously seen for their first, "Easy" level. This means that you could very well have completed some of them already !

Your MalGraph profile (under the Anime Achievements tab) is a useful tool to check out what anime you have already completed for these categories ; it's then merely a matter of picking 25 (or 10 for Horror/Mystery) items in those challenges' checklists that fit what you've watched.

And in case you are missing a couple of shows to reach the 25/10 thresholds... Well, that gives you a hint as to what you could watch next !

Hello, and welcome to the Anime Watching Challenge Club Newsletter!

Club Updates

New staff members : Card Makers!
lycheejane, Rinarin and AngelBeatsYui will help create cards for new members (as well as any other graphics they wish).

New staff member : Points Calculator!
Akai_Shuichi will help (re)evaluate the points awarded for challenges and collections according to their actual length.

New staff member : Advertiser!
chitochito will go around and invite MAL users who may be interested in joining our club, as well as other actions to make the club more visible.

New Tool : See how your Points are calculated !
Our founder, riho88riho, has put together an online Google Docs spreadsheet of the Hall of Fame points.
You can either copy it to your own Google account (File - Add to my Drive) or export it into the format of your choice, such as Excel or Open Document (File - Download As).
How to calculate your own score: select the formulas inside one of your three subtotals cells (Challenges, Collections or Misc), and the challenges taken into account will appear in colored outlines.
This is a great way to double-check whether one of your challenges has been forgotten by mistake !


New Challenges



Challenge Changes

Many Collections and Challenges had their points adjusted !
The points are now awarded according to the actual duration of the items in the Challenge, with 0.25 points for the equivalent of 45 "standard-size" (24 minute) episodes.
This did not have much of an impact on collections, but some of the genre-based and type-based challenges that used to be very generous now give points much more in line with the time actually needed to be spent on them. Conversely, the most difficult and time-consuming challenges will be way more rewarding.
Many people have seen big changes in their scores, going as far as losing one third or half of their points. That's all the more reasons to complete more challenges and climb back up !

The Sports Challenge was revamped !
There are now two possible ways to complete it :
Style [1] : Same as it was before, but with reduced difficulty (only 2/3/4 series per type of sports instead of 3/4/5 before).
Style [2] : This new way is closer to the other genre-based challenges, with 25/35/45 criteria to complete. It should be a bit easier than [1], since non-TV-series anime are now allowed. Also, like with most other genre-based challenges, the first Easy rung allows previously-seen anime.
Once you have started turning in the challenge, you cannot change style.
For members who had already started working on the Sports challenge before this change, they can switch to style [2] AND keep their original starting date, but there is then no coming back to style [1].

The Detective Conan Extras Challenge :
Detective Conan Movie 20: The Darkest Nightmare was moved from Movies to Other / Sides / "Bonus".
A Magic Kaito section was added:
Magic Kaito
Magic Kaito 1412

Fate Challenge:

A Cyborg 009 section was added to Upcoming:
Cyborg 009: Call of Justice 1
Cyborg 009: Call of Justice 2
Cyborg 009: Call of Justice 3
The Biohazard section was moved to the Upcoming section.
The Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu and Tamayura sections were removed from the challenge.

Beginners' Guide #2

With 85 core challenges, 48 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

You May Have Already Completed This #2 : the Aired 20XX Challenges

Are you the kind of fan who watches a lot of anime each season as it airs in Japan ? Or have you merely gone through a good number of the hundreds of TV series that were released over the last decade ? Then, the Aired 20XX Challenges are right for you !

The rules are simple : you must have watched 10 TV series produced in each of the four seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) of a given year. Since anything previously watched counts, it is basically a validation of how assiduous you have been in your anime watching for the last few years.

MAL's Seasonal Anime Search Page is an easy way to check out what you have watched in a given season, and potential candidates you can use to reach 10.

These challenges currently cover the years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. (There's also one for 2016, but obviously it cannot be completed until later this year when the Fall season wraps up.)

You probably won't have completed all of them right out of the gate, but you are probably close to completion for at least some of them. It's a start, right ?

🎃 Club Updates 🎃

Image-hosting issue !
We are having difficulties with the host for most of the club's images and badges, Photobucket. We are working to resolve the situation as soon as possible. The club's images and badges will be swapped to another hosting site, so you will have to update the URLs for your badges after this is fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

SPECIAL ! Limited Time Offer !
First five (5) members to complete the below challenges on Hard difficulty can each select an image or character (within the specifics listed below for each challenge) to be made into a Hard-Difficulty Badge:
Comedy Challenge - img/char needs to be from a funny series or character is laughing
Magical Challenge - img/char must be in their magical forms
Mystery Challenge - img/char must fit with mystery (not horror)
Romance Challenge - img/char must be a standard couple (no ships)

Hall of Fame Updates :
On top of her other duties, AYOSHINA is going to lend a hand to IMKZ for the updates to the Hall of Fame.


🕷 New Challenges 🕷



🕸 Challenge Changes 🕸

52 Weeks Challenge :
In the event you know you're going on a trip for a full week+ and won't be able to watch anime, you may use your "mistakes" as follows:

1 week trip - use either the general mistake (#1) or the quarter mistake (for whichever quarter the mistake occurs in)

2 week trip - watch two series the week before the trip, one for that week and the second series for the first week of the trip you'll be missing; the week you return you can watch two series, one for the second week of your trip and the other for that current week so it looks like :
WEEK #3 - watch 2 series
WEEK #4 - vacation/trip
WEEK #5 - vacation/trip
WEEK #6 - watch 2 series

This will use up 2 of the 5 mistakes allowed - the general mistake and the allowed mistake for that quarter

3 week trip -
WEEK #3 - watch 2 series
WEEK #4 - watch 2 series
WEEK #5- vacation/trip
WEEK #6 - vacation/trip
WEEK #7 - vacation/trip
WEEK #8 - watch 2 series

This will use up 2 of the 5 mistakes allowed - the general mistake and the allowed mistake for that quarter. (even though 3 were missed, it will only count as two due to the situation)

Episodic Challenge :
TV type requirement changed to 15+ minutes total.

🍬 Beginners' Guide #3 🍭

With 89 core challenges, 49 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

You May Have Already Completed This #3 : more Genre-Based Challenges !

Remember how, in the first edition of this newsletter, we suggested you have probably already completed some of the Genre-Based Challenges thanks to the anime you have previously seen ? Well, the good news is that there are now more such challenges.

On top of the initially-mentioned challenges (Magical, Slice-of-Life, Historical, Horror and Mystery), there are now several more allowing previously-completed anime for their Easy difficulty : Mecha, Romance, Ecchi & Comedy. Also, the Sports Challenge has been revamped to make it more similar to the other genre-based challenges, with the same rules for the Easy difficulty.

It should also be noted that there are three other genre-based challenges that allow previously-seen material : Josei, Shoujo Ai and Shounen Ai. You can fill them entirely with anime you have already watched ; what makes them more challenging is that they cover rather niche genres with much fewer available anime. But if you are fans of one of those genres, you may only have a few items left needed to complete the corresponding challenge...

Beginners' Guide #4

With 89 core challenges, 49 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

You May Have Already Completed This #4 : What About Collections ?

If you have been watching anime for a while, you probably have a few favourite franchises, of which you have watched just about everything you could lay your hands on. In this case you may be in luck ! Many such franchises have their own "collection", a mini-challenge from our club that rewards you for watching anything connected to it. Here is the list of them all.

Of course, you are probably missing something or other : a newer season you had not got around to checking out yet, a recap movie you had not bothered with, some specials or spin-offs you had not even heard of before... But hey, that's the perfect occasion to obey your completist instinct and watch whatever you have left !

You may also want to look at some "theme-based" challenges that are basically super-collections : Fate / Type-Moon, Macross, One Piece Extras... Those are quite big and certainly not easy to complete from scratch. But if you were already fans of one of these franchises and are a good way towards completing them... Well, you know what you need to do.

Beginners' Guide #5

With 91 core challenges, 49 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

Have you tried the Highest Scored Anime Challenge ?

If you have been following this guide, you have probably already turned in whichever challenges and collections your pre-club activity allowed you to complete easily. The question now becomes which new challenge you are now going to try and tackle.

This is where the Highest Scored Anime Challenge comes in. The concept here is to try watching one of the anime scored highest by a given other player... on a deadline. Once the start signal for a new round is given by challenge curator SheyCroix, you must choose your target anime and watch it entirely within a short period (depending on the length of the anime itself : 2 days for a movie/1-episode special, 7 days for most regular 12-13 episode series, two weeks for a longer 24-26 episode one...), starting from the aforementioned signal.

The great thing about this challenge is that only anime you haven't watched at all (not even the one episode before dropping it) can qualify : you are forced to be exposed to shows you've never come across before.

The other nice thing about it is that the first round you successfully complete will give you 0.5 points for your club score. Further points are harder to achieve (you get 0.5 more for every 5 more rounds successfully completed), but this first taste should give you a good idea whether you are interested in the various time-limited challenges the club offers.

Beginners' Guide #6

With 93 core challenges, 49 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

How about watching some OVAs, ONAs and Specials ?

By far, the most popular anime among MAL users (and fandom as a whole) are TV series and movies. But the database also references thousands of "shorter" and lesser-known items that were released as standalone VHS/discs (aka "OVA"), on the net (aka "ONA"), or as random extras either on disc or on TV ("specials"). Many of them are supplementary material to a better-known (and longer) TV series, but there is actually quite a bunch of them that stand on their own. In any case, there's probably much more of a variety of them than you ever suspected.

That's what the "Exposure" Challenges are for (ONA, OVA & Special) : entice you to sample a wide range of the miscellaneous items you may have dismissed until now. (And if you have already seen a good number of them... then it is time to dig a bit deeper to find enough to complete them all). Those challenges exist in three flavours (Easy, Medium, Hard) that merely impact the number of criteria you chose to fulfil ; as with all similar challenge, you can always turn in an easier version for now and upgrade it later.

The usual disclaimer applies : since these challenges do not allow previously seen anime (although previously started are ok), you're better signing them up sooner than later.

Beginners' Guide #7

With 93 core challenges, 56 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

How about watching a variety of movies ?

While the focus of most of the anime fandom is mainly on TV series (with some OVAs for good measure), there's actually a wealth of anime movies, either stand-alone or related to bigger franchises. Why not try and complete a few challenges revolving around them ?

Probably your best entry point for this is the Genre-Movies Challenge. The goal is simple : watch 37 anime movies, each in a different genre. They can be of any length, the only limitation is that you cannot use anything you watched before starting the challenge.

You can combine it with a slightly more involved challenge, the Movie-Per-Day Challenge. There you need to watch one movie per day, for either 10, 20, 30 or 40 consecutive days (depending on the difficulty you are aiming for). Since you would already be watching a bunch of movies for the Genre challenge, this is a good way to kill two birds with one stone by pacing yourself.

And then, if you are really looking to challenge yourself, you can do the hat trick by trying for the Movie Timeline Challenge, where you need to watch 74 movies, one per year since the dawn of anime. (Its rules are more relaxed for the more ancient materials from before 1978, so do not worry too much about that.)

Technically, there's nothing preventing you for using the same movie in all three challenges (provided it meets all the appropriate requirements), so knock yourself out ! Or, you know, just try any of them out.

Beginners' Guide #8

With 95 core challenges, 56 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

How about something short for a change ?

With anime, the standard length of an episode is about 22-24 minutes. Even most OVAs stick to the 22-30-minute range (or go for double-length : 45-60 minutes). But there's actually a wealth of anime that have a much shorter length for their episodes. And not just random extras or music videos : a good number of TV series has been released with episodes only 3 to 8 minutes long.

This is where the Short Challenge comes in. It is designed to make you hunt down a variety of short anime. And of course, by its very nature you can complete it rather quickly ; most items will only take you a few minutes.

The Official MAL 2017 Anime Watching Challenge is up and running !
As usual, this club is not involved directly with its management ; but we will award points for its completion.
All questions (as it is indeed more complex this year) should be directed to its Discussion thread. Have fun !
See below for how many club points this may award you.

Challenge Changes

The World Tour Challenge was revamped !
You can now choose which countries to use (Japan cannot be used). There is no limit in the amount of countries you can use, however only 2 (Easy and Medium) or 3 (Hard) series can be used at most per country.
Examples (Hard):
You can use
  • 30 anime from 30 different countries (1 per country)
  • 30 anime from 10 different countries (3 per country)
  • 30 anime from 15 different countries (5 countries with 3, 5 countries with 2 and 5 countries with 1)

The Comedy & Fantasy Challenges had their points changed !
There was a slight mistake while calculating the points awarded for some difficulties of those two challenges ; they did not reflect how much anime you had to watch for them.
Easy : 2 => 1 ; Medium : 3 => 2.5 ; Hard : unchanged with 4 points.

The points awarded for completing the official MAL Anime Watching Challenge have changed too !
Previously, the AWC would grant club members 1 point for Easy, 1.5 points for Medium, and 2.5 points for Hard. This did not exactly reflect their actual difficulty. (They were forgotten in the massive challenge points recalculation from last Fall.)
The new point awards are :
2015 AWC : 0.5 for Easy, 1 for Medium, 1.5 for Hard
2016 AWC : (which had more items) 0.75 for Easy, 1.25 for Medium, 1.75 for Hard, 2 for Hard and all the bonus items.
2017 AWC : Since there are many more variants to this challenge, your points will depend on your chosen difficulty and pattern, and whether you achieved a Genre-based or TV-only "Master" restriction.
Ensign - Asterisk pattern : 0.75 for Normal, 1 for Genre Master, 1.25 for TV Master
Ensign - Snowflake pattern : 0.75 for Normal, 1 for Genre Master, 1.5 for TV Master
Ensign - Arrowhead pattern : 1 for Normal, 1.25 for Genre Master, 1.5 for TV Master
Major - Diamond / Checkerboard patterns : 1 for Normal, 1.25 for Genre Master, 1.75 for TV Master
Major - Triangle / Over Half-Full patterns : 1.25 for Normal, 1.5 for Genre Master, 2 for TV Master
Count - Heart pattern : 1.25 for Normal, 1.75 for Genre Master, 2.25 for TV Master
Count - Clover / Top Hat patterns : 1.5 for Normal, 2 for Genre Master, 2.5 for TV Master
Duke - Butterfly pattern : 1.5 for Normal, 2 for Genre Master, 2.75 for TV Master
Duke - Labyrinth / Jar patterns : 1.75 for Normal, 2.25 for Genre Master, 3 for TV Master
Emperor - Full Card pattern : 2 for Normal, 2.5 for Genre Master, 3.25 for TV Master
Only one instance of the 2017 AWC will count towards your club score (but you will be able to upgrade your turn-in to a higher-difficulty version if you achieve it later on). Please remember that you should always wait for the AWC staff to validate your challenge first (with your name duly showing up on the opening posts of the challenge) before submitting your turn-in to this club.

The 52-Week Challenge can now overlap with the official MAL AWC Challenges.

Updates and Additions for Challenges & Collections :

Beginners' Guide #9

With 98 core challenges, 56 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

Another useful tool : the Witch-Effect website

In a previous column, we mentioned how helpful MalGraph could be for checking on your challenge progress. But there is another add-on website to MAL that will greatly simplify filling challenges in : Witch-Effect.

Like MalGraph, you have to register your username (you can ignore the password field), wait some time (a few hours at most usually) to process your anime list, and then you can check out the handy tables and charts. Unlike MalGraph, once your username is registered, there is no need to force manual updates ; your data is automatically updated from MAL once every night.

The tab most useful for our purposes is the "Anime List" tab (opened by default). After clicking on the "Filters" button, you can specify (and combine) a good number of filters way more powerful and comprehensive than available on MAL itself.
  • Usually, you will want to add many columns to the table (with the checkboxes on the left) : your Start & Finish dates, the Season it aired, the Studio(s), the Genre(s), the Source, the Type... Conversely, you will probably want to remove extraneous fields such as the Hipster % or "Days to Finish".
  • You can sort by any column displayed by clicking on its header.
  • To add a filter, click on its name, then fill/unfill the checkboxes and other fields on the right. For example, you may want to show only the shows you have watched ("Status" filter, click on "Completed").
  • Common useful filters : shows started (or finished) from date X (depending on the challenge rules) ; Watch Time above 15 minutes ; by a given Type or Genre...

The interface make take a bit of time to master, but learn to use it and you spend a lot less time double-checking on which items in your list qualify for a given challenge !

Beginners' Guide #10

With 98 core challenges, 56 collections, and various miscellaneous items (monthly challenges, scavenger hunts, High Score Challenge, etc.), the Anime Watching Challenges club may appear a bit overwhelming to the newcomer. In this section, we will offer a few tips for new members to complete their first few challenges.

And finally, a few helpful links...

Over the last few months, this feature has been spotlighting a good number of newcomer-friendly challenges and collections, as well as other useful resources. We feel like we have covered all of the most accessible parts of the clubs, and nearly everything else should be left to be discovered by motivated members. (Afterall, nobody expects a new member to try tackling the likes of the Ultimate Challenge right away.)

Because of this, we are going to retire this column for now, at least on a regular fortnightly basis ; we may revive it occasionally, as we see fit. (If you do have any suggestion for something that beginners should be made aware of, and we have somehow missed, please send it to the newsletter staff : @Jhiday and/or @Kreyul.)

As a last encouragement, here are a few helpful threads you should know about :
- Do not forget that after completing a challenge, you should inform us by posting in the Challenge Turn-in thread ! And please follow the indicated format, so that we can proceed with verification and inscription to the Hall of Fame.
- The Index thread is very helpful if you cannot find a challenge (or anything else) on the front page, in easily-searchable text form.
- This (still in construction) thread aims to centralize the sign-up codes for all challenges, so that you only need to cut and past it (instead of quoting and editing the challenge's main post).

Hello, and welcome to the Anime Watching Challenge Club Newsletter!

Special thanks to Rinarin for our lovely banner !

Club Updates



If you haven't heard yet, we've recently gotten married to the Monthly Anime Club !

Since both the Monthly Anime Club and Anime Watching Challenges are about encouraging people to watch and discover more anime, we decided it was appropriate for both clubs to team up and support one another. While MAC has it's own monthly challenge you can participate in as well, the club's primary feature is a system where every month you are given a partner to exchange personalized anime recommendations with based on whatever the theme is that month. It could be a good way to find more anime for the challengers here if you're ever struggling. Right now the theme is Magic anime, so if you're interested in that feel free to head on over! If you look up near the bottom of the club layout, you'll see a banner that leads to our club along with some important links just below it. I hope very much to see you all there, and look forward to working with AWC!

New club milestone : MAL's Top 50 Clubs

Welcome to all newcomers who have joined us over the last few months and thank you all for joining!
We will be opening a card edition on July 7th to commemorate this accomplishment!

New Mini Project !

Since we're big in numbers and have a wide variety of countries represented, there's a high chance that some of our members that don't speak English feel left behind. So, they don't seek help when they have a question. Taking this into consideration, we have decided to try something:

In a collaboration with the staff and volunteer members, we will be offering help in different languages!
The help will be given using the Queries thread and a special channel set up on our discord server.

If you are comfortable with English and wish to help in another language,
please contact SheyCroix via private message (either here on MAL or discord).

Staff Updates :

Applications for the Inspector position are now closed. Thank you to those who sent an application. We wish you luck in the upcoming exam!

We are currently recruiting an Advertiser/Inviter for the Manga Reading Challenges and Anime Watching Challenges clubs.
Please PM either riho88riho or abystoma2 if you're interested.

Special thanks to Rinarin for our lovely banner !

Club Updates

NEW ! There is now a website for the Club's Hall of Fame !
Since it is getting harder to update the Hall of Fame manually in a timely manner, we now have a shiny new website for it.

In there you can find :
- Every turn-in you have ever made to the club, with its validation status (until the last website update)
- An updated Hall of Fame for every challenge
- The up-to-date top of users by points obtained (including an "unofficial" top including yet-to-be-validated turn-ins)
- A number of tables and graphs that would never have been possible manually

The website is still in BETA : new features are added regularly, and there may be some little mistakes here and there.
Don't hesitate to contact the webmaster if you find that anything is wrong. (But read the FAQ first !)
