@AholePony @zombie_pegasus wait, did I miss something? About #41 (I will be mixing my answers to both, sorry)
That which seems likes the girl 'antennas' is actually hair. What seems to be called "ahoge" (same for the other girl). I'm not trying to make it more strict/loose, but that item is simply based on appearance. In how they look like. If people want the easy way out that's up to them, right? The challenge was worded this way to make it more "general" for everyone ... To also make it, maybe, a bit easier to check since it's only based on the looks of one main character....


Fair enough, I just think we'd have a lot less people confused by the challenge if it were made to where only actual creatures were main characters. I was more saying this as constructive criticism for future years.

A lot of the challenges could be re-worded to be more intuitive (like the recent questions about "above #600 being 601 or 599. On a "Top List" above is usually up the list which is lower in number. I know you have the extra text to explain it but it still could be worded better as an example. With the way #41 is now, you invite arguments (a waste of time), like I would argue that Gokicha's hair isn't actually hair, they just made it look that way. I see your point and there's plenty to choose from so I don't care but some of us are bored and like to help others when they ask so we'd like to give good answers wherever possible.

I agree about the Popularity above #601 one - we are talking about popularity rankings, and when i read that something is ranked above another, i would first think it is 600, 599, 598 etc... because for me above would be the same as "higher". then again i am not fluent in english so...

@AholePony noted and no worries. I had to write all that so I was expecting some mistakes here and there... but when some users helped proof-reading that and didn't say anything I guessed it was clear enough/well explained.

I changed my anime for that challenge from Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase (I don't think this would have actually worked) to Massugu ni Ikou. (one of the main characters is an actual dog and so all of its features are ones a human wouldn't have). All good?

Lmfao ... yes one of the main characters being a dog does work for the challenge.
Surprised there is even an anime that has a dog as main character to be honest.

I watched Ling Qi for that challenge, was pretty good, not as bad as I expected.
I had to get used to the chinese dub especially the first few episodes but it grew on me.

Two items:

First, insert standard "I got Challenge #59" request here.

Second would be a bit more involved with "Watch an anime with someone [director (any), script and/or storyboard] you don't know" giving me a bit of trouble. So if anyone has any pointers as to a main staff member where I haven't seen any of their work to date, then I'd be glad to accept the recommendation.

I found one by looking for first-time directors - Mirai Minato. To find more try searching for "directorial debut" in anime news.

For 59, Macross F.

So, about #62:

62. Watch an anime that hasn't been reviewed

Is there a way to search this in a simpler way than scrolling the lists trying to find a non-reviewed anime?

Thanks!

That's a good tip. I don't know why I didn't think of that right off the bat, but it probably involves a massive headache.

Not really.
Easiest way is to find some "Ova" or "Special" that's related to a not too popular anime, those mostly dont have reviews.
Otherwise try to find an anime title that's not that popular, maybe less than 10k members (which you can search for) and hope that those arent reviewed.

Go to the page when you signed up.
For me it's page 7 I believe.

Then check for a random person on the same page that has rated an anime a 9 or 10.
Watch that anime.

For 59, based on your profile... You like Space Brothers. You have god taste. I recommend you to watch Level E, only 13 episodes and ironic as hell.


Would you please recommend one for me? I'm doing #59 too ^-^

So the person above me is 1002, I would be 1003? Even if the person below is 1005?

To be honest I actually don't know, pretty much the whole page for the section you happen to be in is messed up when comparing it to the page prior. If we started going strictly by counting order you would be at 1005 which would put 3 people with that particular number.

Watch a completed anime with more user in "Plan-to-Watch" than "Completed" - check in the stats tab; state the members it had when you started

I'm very confused by this. How do you know if there are more "Plan-to-watch" than "Completed"? i can't find it.

74. Watch an anime recommended to a Favorite Anime listed in your profile - any listed in your profile. If it changes there you have to change it here too; state your favorite anime

This too. Can anybody clarify?


Lastly, can anybody recommend an anime for this challenge?
44. Watch an anime that mainly takes places outside of Japan, but still on Earth

Go to the Stats tab on any of the anime database pages. It will say how many users have the anime on his/her list and in what category (e.g. Completed or Plan to Watch). Example. In this case, Completed > Plan to Watch, so it would not work for this item.

Pick a favorite anime from your profile (you only at this time have Noragami Aragoto listed) and then go to the Recommendations tab. Watch any of those anime listed there. Example.

Ristorante Paradiso takes place in Italy and Baccano! takes place in the United States, both of which are listed in your Plan to Watch.

Let's see I have a habit of checking first episode only and abandoning the series completely after it. But can I use that series(example Occultic;Nine) that I've seen the first episode as it's initially aired for challenge? Even though what I watch is only the first episode?

@Conde_Mohr brilliant work with the spreadsheet. I actually made my own before I saw your's, and I must say, yours is very well done almost to the point of OCD. I mean that as a compliment, of course.

Some questions I'd like to ask:
- I've noticed that you've protected the auto generated parts of the workbook. Would it be possible for you to explain how everything works? I presume it's some combination of formulas and VBA (but it's not macro enabled), which is hidden by the settings.
- How did you add all the bingo cards into the sheet? I hope you didn't manually transcribe them all!
- How is your FORUM POST table formatted? Highlighting the first cell, then Ctrl+Shift+Down results in an odd selection of 5Rx6C.

There's more, but those are the main ones. Basically, I'd appreciate the chance to have a look at the inner workings of your document for myself. My own sheets just used a lot of formulas with a VBA script for the forum post generation. Also, not nearly as well laid out. I'd considered making a C# .NET app to manage it, but your document more than suffices.

Again, a job well done.
