Thanks for the feedback, guess i’ll Just wait for now. Though, I guess I could just replace it with Yu Yu Hakusho once I get around to finishing it just to go around the confusion.


If that suits better, you can~

Ok, so I used an anime (JoJo Recaps) as an entry in my Novice block. It was one episode long at that time (and finished airing at that), and I have since finished Novice and moved up to Apprentice.

The problem is that the second recap got released today and its anime entry got updated, it still has status "finished airing", but now the airing dates are different, as is episode count.

Can I still count it as an entry for my Novice block?


It depends on when you started Apprentice. If you watched the second ep the same day you started Apprentice it would be fine, but if not, you can't use the ones that you watched for Apprentice that were watched before you finished the Jojo Recap. You'd still be able to use the Recap as long as you finish it.


No, I finished Apprentice long before the second ep of JoJo Recap aired. But what do you mean I can't use the ones I watched for Apprentice? If I change the dates I watched those blocks (because I don't have any other choice now), one of the things I watched and used as Apprentice entry might be ok for one of Novice entries that didn't have yet. Would I still be forbidden to use them as Novice entries because I checked them as Apprentice entries? That kind of doesn't make any sense, especially since it's MAL that forced me to make changes, not a mistake on my part

Since you technically didn't finish Novice (because you didn't watch the second episode of the Jojo Recap), it would mean that because your finish date for Novice is later than all of your Apprentice titles, which isn't allowed. You could try to use an anime that you used for Apprentice, that was watched in the beginning of your time block of Apprentice and use that instead of the Jojo Recap. And then fill in the missing spot of Apprentice, and so on.

I want to join the challenge please help me to join the anime watching challenge

Please don't use the sign up thread for questions. Use this thread.
If you need further help, you can ask with more details here. I would suggest to first read the "How to Participate" post on that thread.

I'm certain it's already stated somewhere, but here it is:
Since that's for after turning in, what if it happen before turning in? I've asked about that before here and that's why i asked if there's other cases when a participant's higher item would be invalid and thus need to restart at the point where their difficulty items. Though it would be easier if such participant only noticed after turning in. Or does it works before turning in as well?

If you notice that one of your anime become invalid after you started the following section, you will have to re-work it all over again. Sadly.
Your only options (besides that) would be to:
- try to make it work with an unused item
- try to replace it with an unused anime watched during that section's time period
- replace it with an anime that's over 50 episodes long <-- they don't abide by section's date
- play the fool and wait till turn-in and you get it called out

And yeah, it would be easier to play the fool and watch something at the end if you don't have anything else watched. Up to the participant.

I have a question regarding (N.31)

It says in the description of the item to use any series of the franchise listed.
When I go on TVTropes they usually seem to list Bakemonogatri as the series (for example for the trope Art Shift) which is the name of the first series of the franchise. Now if I would want to watch Zoku Owarimonogatari would that be valid?
I think they put Bakemono there as a representative of the whole franchise (when you click on it it leads to a Monogatrari-Series entry) but just looking at it just this one title is referenced by name.

Should be fine to use.
(character limit)

@GreeenSponge you do have to use Bakemonogatari for that trope. To be able to use the franchise, the example would need to say "Monogatari Series".

Hello
I want to use Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!
[Children: Hinata Hoshino, Hana Shirosaki, Noa Himesaka]
for the item Apprentice #20
Watch an anime with at least 3 human children as main characters — state the children; they should be 12 years old or younger (you should be able to find a source for the age; doesn't need to be stated on MAL); state the character; this item excludes characters that, as adults, goes back to being a child while retaining their memories (either time travel, being reborn or another cause) and half-humans

But i cant finde a source for the actual age of the 3 children. i only found a source stating that they are in 5th grad which would mean they are 10-11 years old by japanese standards.
Is this valid or do i have to finde a source for the actual age?

Just got my revisions and was asked for my ep.history for this:
(E.01) Watch an anime with 75 or more episodes that are each 16 minutes or more:

Can I still use Hunter x Hunter (2011)?
About a month ago I realized I hadn’t actually watched it, initially adding it 3 years ago because I thought the 99 version was the same thing. I ended up binging it within a week (15+ hours/day, what is life?) which is why my episode history looks weird. However, I do realize it looks like I rewatched it, which is against the rules. Just wondering if it still counted, could always watch something else if it doesn’t.

You will need to change it, considering that screenshot.

You don't have many options there since those recaps will be counted as finished airing on the second date. You will need to replace the anime or push back your finish date and replace all of your Apprentice section. Alternatively, if you have something watched before or on the starting date for that second section, you should try to use it. Remember that your finish date and start date between the sections can collide, so that would be easier for you. Like, you could use the earliest watched for Apprentice on Novice, then push back the date of the 2nd section. Up to you.

Could I please get a couple recommendations for I. 21 - "Watch an anime with 4 episodes or more recommended to you by a challenge team member"
If it's not too much to ask can I get something that aired in either the 70s or 80s that's not already in my PTW? Any length/genre is fine.

Sorry for the late reply! And I can try, ofc~ I haven't seen that many from those years and most of those I have indeed seen aren't that good, but will try to go with something at least bearable or easy to watch ;D
After checking, I only have four I can recommend. I did try to verify that you didn't have them on your PTW nor watched. Hope I'm right (fingers crossed!)

So, most bearable and decent https://myanimelist.net/anime/589/Ginga_Nagareboshi_Gin

Oh ok, that's what I was thinking too, I just got confused with the "you can't use the ones that you watched for Apprentice that were watched before you finished the Jojo Recap" fragment. Thanks for clarification, I'll probably do that

Thank you very much! I will probably go with Ginga Nagareboshi Gin since it looks pretty unique and definitely not something I would normally watch. I appreciate you taking the time to find those and I apologize if my request was a little too picky lol.

I'm half asleep and I don't remember which one you're referring to, but looking at our lists here's some random recs I've seen and you haven't.

Edit: this one? Watch an anime with 3 or more main characters in which more than half are adults
I can't really help with that one, everything seems to only have 2 main characters x.x

Quick question, is your turn in form just for every section upgrade? Or is it until you complete the thing? Sorry, I'm new to all this, it's a tad confusing...

Also say you finish an item on novice, all you need to do is edit your initial post on the sign up thread? Thanks.

You turn in once you've completed the highest section you want to complete for your section. You do not post a turn in form for every section upgrade you do, only turn in once you're done with your whole challenge. If you turn in at Apprentice level, for example, it's implying that you're completing the challenge up through Apprentice level and won't be continuing any other sections.

And yes, once you finish an item, you just need to edit your sign up post to reflect as such.

Does Net Juu no Susume count for A. 19, a series with 3+ mains that are adults. There's 4 mains listed but I think it's the 2 main characters and their rpg characters. So it's by definition more than 4 mains listed and I think both are 18+ but then I'm not sure if that means half are adults (2 out of 4} or all are adults, since 2 of them aren't living characters.

I doubt it would count since they aren't human.

Does anyone have a better method of searching through active staff members' favourite anime for Novice Challenge 27 other than opening 50 tabs and just looking manually? I usually find something I want to watch and see what challenges it fits into but trying to look through all those profiles is a lot of work for the amount of times I have done it to no avail.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but for (Ap.33) Watch an anime that has a one-word title, does it have to be a real word? I'm thinking of using Kaiba.

Would also like to get recommendations for (Ap.29) Watch an anime recommended to you in the challenge discussion thread!

I personally just went down the page until I found a staff member who shared similar tastes and went from there.

For this item (novice, nr 16):
Watch an anime with 2 or more main characters where one is as a human child
is it okay that all of the main characters are children? Or must at least one adult be a MC as well? I'm thinking of using Promised Neverland for this item and want to make sure it's still fine if all adults in it are supporting characters.


Second question, for this item (N.28):
Watch an anime that finished airing with more than 10 episodes and has a synopsis by MAL Rewrite
Does this mean that I can only start the series after it's finished airing? The new Boogiepop Phantom anime is still airing (and will be for the next two weeks) but already has the synopsys rewritten, and meets the episode count requirement.

Yes and yes.
Your N16 is similar to my task with "half that are adults" - all of them were 18 or over so it's okay for you if all the mains are children.
you need ONLY one child, regardless of who is part of the main cast, meaning there can be more children as main characters or just that one

And in the second task you mentioned, the anime needs to be finished before your start date; so it's can't be an on-going anime, sorry.

Novice #6 - Watch an anime by a director that made one of your Favorite Anime — they have to be director in both series, the one used and your favorite; your favorite anime must be added as favorite; state the director and your favorite anime; any kind of director

Question #1 - This says "any kind of director", I understand that this could be animation dir / director / etc. What I am curious about though is, do they have to be the same type of director in both series? Ie. if the staff member is the Director in one series, and then an animation director in the next series; does that count? or do they both have to be animation director?

Question #2 - I have my doubts about "episode director". Does this position count? I am wondering because to me, there is a difference between directing the entire series, directing the sound, or animation for the entire duration --- while an episode director could simply be directing one episode out of 13 ... or more (like 1 / 50) . When the involvement can be so little, does being episode director actually fulfill this challenge item?

1. They do not have to be the same kind of director in both series.

2. Episode directors count.

I might count it on the basis that he works at and practically owns a restaurant, but I’d have to get @SheyCroix ‘s approval on that

Can I have a series for: (I.21) Watch an anime with 4 episodes or more recommended to you by a challenge team member? I would prefer something in the top 500 in popularity, but when you know a good, but unknown series feel free to recommend it :D

Ooh, thought it would be hard to get some recommendations that adhere to Top #500 in popularity, but got a nice variety:

Nichijou
Nagi no Asukara
Ben-To
Chihayafuru

Hope you see one that catches you eye ~

Hi,

before moving to Intermediate level, I'd like to confirm in relation to challenge:
"Ap 35. Watch an anime that finished airing with no Opening and Ending themes listed"
Are Omakes, i.e., Black lagoon omakes adequate for this?

For Intermediate level:
I.15. Watch an anime with a non-humanoid main character - — state the character; can't have physical resemblance to humans (like human hands); e.g. Pikachu, Totoro, Kyuubey, Sakamoto and Monokuma are valid; Piccolo and Ryuk would be invalid; excludes humans/animals/etc that transform into the other (like Arima, Ahiru)
I seem to remember that I read in this thread, that Koro-sensei is adequate as non-humanoid. Could you confirm? For me, he seems to be contrary to the requirements detailed in the explanation.
I. Watch an anime with 4 episodes or more recommended to you by a challenge team member
Please recommend an anime for this challenge.

Finally, a technical question, is it ok to list 1-2 challanges more than the minimum requirements for a level. I use more in order to avoid, that some are qualified as inadequate resulting in that the following levels are lost.

Thank you for your info!

Wondering if Master Keaton works for "(Ap.22) Watch an anime that mainly takes place outside of Japan, but still on Earth", as he solves cases all around the world making the location hard to pinpoint.

Also, would be cool if anyone could rec me something for AP.29 that's 2-cour max, ideally an atmospherical show. Format and age don't matter.

Yep. Specifically, I checked Black Lagoon Omake and it's valid.

Yeah, we had a specific conversation about this somewhere and came to the conclusion that Koro-sensei is valid.

Mmmmm, you can keep them on your list for now, but when you turn in, you're gonna want to take them off. Validators are wanting to see a clean list with no extras. It's a good strategy for trying to get Angelic though; what I'd suggest is combing through your list one last time right before you turn it in and take off the items you feel iffy about or items that have since become invalid, leaving only the minimum for each difficulty level.

Hope this helps ~

I've watched Master Keaton and can verify that it is valid. Put down the location as multiple European countries.
He really only spends like 2 episodes in Japan if I remember correctly.

Ok, I rarely ask for any help, I read the explanations through, but I started the Intermediate level and I have some questions. I ask any member of the @AWC_mod for help (or any other user that completed these tasks)...

I asked Yuki-chan for this item but she also wasn't sure...
(I.25) Watch an anime featured in another participant's forum set
I would like to user her forum set ( @Yuki-Chan276 ), she has Kushina Anna form K. I would like to watch K: Seven Stories Movie 1 - R:B - Blaze but I see there that Anna is listed in the characters but no voice actor (I'm guessing she appears in the movie yet idk...) . Is this anime valid for this item or should I pick somebody else's forum set?

Next, the item that is most asked about lol
(I.29) Finish an anime you put on-hold or dropped on or before July, 2018
What I want to use is Naruto. It's been sitting in my on-hold forever and I really want to complete it once and for all lol. But when I opet "history" I see that ep 110 was watched back in November 2011 (and I stopped on ep 190). I didn't have MAL before Jan 2011 so I couldn't enter the original start date, but I certainly watched the anime before it. So my questions are:
1) Will this anime be valid even though I don't have ep 1. listed in history?
2) What should I put as the "original start date"?
And also (since I had a problem with that last year but now's different):
3) What should my "started" date be? The original one in "history" (for Naruto - 2011) or the date when I continued it (now in 2019)?

And finally, the easiest:
(I.21) Watch an anime with 4 episodes or more recommended to you by a challenge team member
So, any member, anything comedy and easy to watch will do, something with 12 eps.

Thank you in advance! ^^

In that case the best you can do is to tag @SheyCroix and wait for her opinion.

1) Yes, it will be valid.
2) The date you have originally started watching it. You can state "Mid 2010" if you don't remember the exact date.
3) It can be either. I personally prefer the original start date.

Thanks, @mozgow !
So, putting "mid 2010" will be okay???
Lol, that seems risky... Last year I was asked to put the original start date/to edit the post with real info so... Would it be safer if I just choose another anime? ^^"

EDIT: To avoid any problems I chose another anime.
Just waiting for @SheyCroix to look at my question about I.25 ^^

Well, for me it would be OK But if last year it was not, then I would advise to specify a date or use another anime.

Indeed, it is better to put a full date, or at least a month and a year if it was more than 2 years ago.

For Anna, I have asked Shey some time ago, and if she appears it should be fine to use it.

Thanks Yuki <3
So, in both "started" and "original date" I should write the date of the 1st episode watched?? Or should a "started" date be the one when I continued it??
I really want to avoid mistakes...
(I chose Piano no Mori and I watched the 1st ep in April last year)

I’ll put in some of my own input.
Last year I used Hunter x Hunter (2011) for that challenge and used Late 2016/Early 2017 as the start date. Also left a note under that item that I hadn’t joined MAL by the time I started that anime and that it had been on hold ever since. It ended up being valid.

Also to answer the above question, the day you initially started it is the date you should list.
