Hi, this is my second year participating, hoping to complete it.
I was wondering if someone can recommend me anime for the following items:
Item #16: Watch an anime with 2 or more main characters where one is as a human child
Item #17: Watch an anime with a main character that is a professional in their field
Item #26: Watch an anime with a full English title
Item #30: Watch an anime with 3 or more main characters with unnatural hair colors

I also want to try my hand at making banners for the challenge and was wondering what the appropriate size for banners are.

Thanks for any help and good luck to everyone participating!


16: Usagi Drop or Kaze no Matsubosou (Movie)
17: No clue unless you haven't watched March Comes in Like a Lion yet...
26: Anything to do with Ghost in the Shell
30: Again, no clue sorry

Hi! Sorry if this was asked before, but can I use Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu for '(N.17) Watch an anime with a main character that is a professional in their field' and put Yakumo Yuurakutei as rakugo performer?
Yes, it's valid for this item.


riyuurin said:
Also, another dumb question 'Watch an anime with more than 16 minutes in total' applies to series and not just movies?
Yes, the combined length of all episodes must be 16 minutes or more.


DoubleJEspejwan6 said:
I know that it was already asked, but I just wanted to clarify, does the tag "Written by MAL Rewrite" denote that this anime can be used for "(N.28) Watch an anime that finished airing with more than 10 episodes and has a synopsis by MAL Rewrite?" I know this seems obvious, but I wanted to be extra careful.

Is AnoHana okay for this one since it has "Written by MAL Rewrite" in the synopsis?
Yes, that's one of the way for finding these anime.


DoubleJEspejwan6 said:
Also, for the "Watch an anime in which your favorite character's voice actor participated," do English voice actors apply too? I know this all seems pretty obvious, but I thought I'd clarify before making any changes.
If it's in MAL database, it's counts.

Yes and yes. Rakugo is a profession and 16 minutes does apply to anime series.

quick question.. do OVAs, ONAs, Specials count?

For example : N.02) Watch an anime with 10 or more episodes that are each 15 minutes or less

and I simply watched 009 Re:Cyborg x Zip

Unless item asks for specific type of anime, any anime in MAL database counts.

@SheyCroix , will there be banners that match the previous four years' main banners? As in, the banners displayed in my profile, for example. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I would really like for my banners to continue to match and to not include any anime characters...

Thanks for your help!

If anybody's interested in a spreadsheet to plan their AWC I just finished half-ass-converting @i_yuuko-chan's 2018 spreadsheet for this year and added some functionalities.

- Name parsing from URL
- Unfulfilled items are striked if section if completed
- Page 2 is a single cell ready to copy in the sign-in post

1. Is there a challenge generator or an excel sheet where we can potentially plan out the anime to watch? Or did I miss it in the rules section?

This may be what you were asking for.

NB: The tests are quarter-assed so PM me if something is supposed to work and doesn't so I can tell you it's a feature

Okay two questions

"Watch an anime with 2 or more main characters where one is as a human child "

I imagine this wont be an issue, but what if the series has several kids under the age of 12 listed as main characters?

"Watch an anime with a main character that is a professional in their field"

Will Sugimoto from Golden Kamuy count for this, he's a professional soldier

If we successfully complete the challenge with two official restrictions, will both of them be listed or will we have to pick only one title? I am definitely shooting for the Master of Drama title, but also tempted by the TV only restriction as well. I wanted to ask early on before potentially wasting my time. If life gets hectic, I am going to have to choose.

Thank you!

Good luck everyone~

Hi. Where can I find a full list of the bbcode colors* that we can use on MAL Forums? (*colors with associated names)

And for that item:

[*]The colors used for the list can be to your liking, but please avoid using colors that are too light (like this), too bright (like this) or colors too dark (like this). Don't use black at all.

Should be great a list with the voided colors.

ps: thanks for the reply Frayl.

trope: a common or overused theme or device

you go on tvtropes website, click the "random trope" button that is up there and you will end up on a particulartrope site where you can find examples with anime in which you can find said trope...and you choose one and watch the anime. If there are no anime examples, click the random trope button again until you find it (but there usually always is at least one).



Ok, while I'm here...we are supposed to watch fave anime of active staff member. As long as we don't use one of those retired people are we fine? Because the person I chose was logged onto MAL for the last time in September, so I'm not sure if that counts as "active".

Might be a dumb question, but

13. Watch an anime with more than 16 minutes per episode and a score of or below 6.00
14. Watch an anime with more than 16 minutes per episode and a score of or above 8.00

Is it okay if the anime is only 1 episode?

Question: Would Gotoubun no Hanayome count for "(N.17) Watch an anime with a main character that is a professional in their field"?
He's a tutor, and he gets paid for it, but I just want to make sure.

(I'm mostly unsure about if being a tutor is a "profession", because it's referred to as a part-time job in the synopsis.)

Since formatting is even more important this year I want to make sure this is okay before I get too deep into the challenge:

I've moved the actual challenge lists outside of the quote boxes because the numbered list was showing up consecutively as zeroes. It also allows a bit of extra room per line which I thought was nice. Everything else formatting-wise for the challenge list is exactly as it's supposed to be. Here's my sign-up post for reference. Also, is there a specific way we're meant to list the start and finish dates? Like January 3rd vs 01/03 or what have you.

So I read the Restriction Notes on the challenge sign-up thread, and I'm still a bit fuzzy on how this works exactly. I'd like to try and get the Angelic title, so could I get an example of what restrictions I'd have to use in order to get that title, and how I would format it on my Sign-In and Turn-In posts.

Just got a small question about color codes. Is it alright to use a different color for each level? For example, I was thinking of using each level's color for their respective completed items.

For example:
Novice for Novice
Apprentice for Apprentice (is this too bright?)

Amnesia for example has the Harem tag, so it should be fine. Just check the genres.

Hello everybody. I have a question about this item:
(N.05) Watch a listed noitaminA or YATP series
I have no problem finding series that fall under that umbrella, however, this item asks for a "theme" and I am confused as to what this even means.

Apologies for the double post, however, I'd very much appreciate if someone could recommend me Anime for these items (preferably not too long):

(N.13) Watch an anime with more than 16 minutes per episode and a score of or below 6.00

(N.28) Watch an anime that finished airing with more than 10 episodes and has a synopsis by MAL Rewrite

Much appreciated.

Hello everyone!
I'm working on anime I'm planning to watch for the 2019 challenge. I need some confirmation about "30. Watch an anime with 3 or more main characters with unnatural hair colors — excludes black, brown, blonde, red, white and gray (and most shades of it); it's either green, blue, pink, purple or orange "

Uta No Prince-sama got 2 main characters with dark blue hair but what about the hair color of the main girl? Is it orange? So can I use this anime to complete the 30 or not? Thanks in advance for the answer !

Hello ! o7

For anime requiring a duration higher than 16 minutes, we must follow this duration or follow the desired duration? I read your example
-- "Rushed", your anime would need to have less than 5 favorites and 15 minutes or less per episode.
but I'm not really sure anymore.

@AWC_mod FYI, I just made some minor adjustments with the banners, as there was something that didn't sit right with me when I inspected them again, that's why I edited my post.

Nothing else, thanks. \o/ I hope you'd add them to the banners list soon...

Hi as long as the anime is more then 16 minutes it can be one episode.

If I had an on-hold or dropped anime in 2018, do I use that date for my sign up? It says here:

The "Challenge Start Date" shouldn't be today's date, but the date of your first completed and used anime for the challenge, regardless of when you post your sign up form.

this challenge is just for anime that you started in 2019 so you wouldn't be able to use that anime unless the challenge criteria specified an on-hold or dropped anime

I don't know if I will finish this year since the "have to do the previous tier first" makes it kind of awkward (I feel unlikely to slow down on watching something due to the AWC), but I have always enjoyed watching this so I'm gonna shoot for at least one level of this.

Had a question but then realized it actually doesn't actually matter because they're director in addition to creator. So, uh, guess this is turning into a "good luck everyone!" post.

Hey, have a similar question to QueenArashi.

I'm also planning to work on Novice 30: Watch an anime with 3 or more main characters with unnatural hair colors. My anime of choice is Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu and I just wanted to ensure that it was valid.

For reference I am citing Ban with blue hair, Gowther with pink hair, and King with orange hair as my three characters.
