Does Haikyuu!! count for #33: Watch an anime that has a one-word title of the apprentice challenge? Does it count as a word or no?
Yes, it counts as one word title.

Hey guys, just a little question, does "Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online" counts as "an anime with a full English title"?
I was going to watch another anime, but this one is on Netflix, so why not lol
I mean, I know it is all in English, but I don't know if there is some problem because those are the names of the games they are playing or wherever @-@

"Watch an anime that began airing the same month (any year) you joined MAL"

Does it include movies that aired that month? Or does it apply only to a series that has a starting point in that month?

As long as all words in the title are found in the English dictionary, it's valid. In this case, yes, it's valid.

If the item doesn't specify an anime type as a requirement, any item that fits the requirements is valid. So for that item, movies are valid as long as they're listed in the database as coming out the same month you joined MAL.

Just asking to make sure, but I guess if you have an anime that you've only seen one or two episodes of before the challenge started you can't just rewatch those and then the rest to use for the challenge?

Hello, I require additional assistance with the "Watch an anime with 2 or more main characters where one is as a human child".
Would Golden Kamuy season 2 be eligible for this challenge? Asirpa's age is never outright stated from my knowledge, however, she certainly appears to be a child.

Thanks.

Asirpa is guessed to be either 12 or 13. I don’t think it is safe to use her in the case that she is 13.

Yes, the whole anime needs to be watched in 2019, so if you have started it prior to that you cannot use it. Sorry.

Hello i have a question regarding the items:
Novice #29
Watch any anime recommended to your Favorite Anime — state your favorite anime added as favorite; if your favorites change, change accordingly

Intermediat #07
Watch an anime that began airing the same season and year as your favorite anime — state your favorite anime added on your profile; if your favorite changes, change this accordingly


Does it have to be the same favorit anime or can they be 2 different ones from my profile?

I have a question for section 2 #8 "Watch an anime with a voice actor that worked on 5 or less series". Do I also have to count theme song performances? Rika Nagae has 5 voice acting roles and one additional Theme Song Performance in a different series. Does she still count?

She seems to have worked on 5 series so far. So you can use her, to be sure you can take a screenshot in case it changes.

I'd say no. Needs to be human, and while a ghost used to be human, it really isn't anymore

Dunno with which one I will eventually go, but all of them seem like a solid choice. No6 might be the most convenient, tho.

@AWC_Mod & @SheyCroix Hello!

I am submitting my final batch of AWC banners just as I promised. I'm posting the codes first before the full banner preview.



Also, to @AWC_Mod & @SheyCroix , I have a small personal request as the creator of these banners. One of the image URLs for the banner is placed in its own line, at the top. That single banner should be placed alongside the banners of Ram and Rem, because I would like to see all the Re:Zero banners aligned at the top of the selection, please.

So if all banners are placed correctly, they should look like this in the banner selection:



I'm proud to say that I've finally completed all the banners! x) Please and thank you!

I'm not from the staff so I don't know but it should be okay I guess as long as you don't start the recommended anime before finishing Novice? Anyway some staff member will probably confirm later.

From PTW I recommend:
Chika Gentou Gekiga: Shoujo Tsubaki
Kasei Yakyoku
Kyuuketsuhime Miyu
Makai Toshi Shinjuku
Perfect Blue

And some recommendations not from your PTW:
Cyber City Oedo 808
Ginga Tetsudou no Yoru
Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku
JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken: Adventure
Manie-Manie: Meikyuu Monogatari
Robot Carnival

Hi,

can the Black lagoon series be used for the following Ap. challanges?
1. Watch an anime with a human main character that is not Japanese — has to be a real nationality; state the character and nationality; can't be half-Japanese
One of the main characters is Japanese, the others are not. e.g. Dutch - American, Revy - Chinese- American
1. Watch an anime that mainly takes place outside of Japan, but still on Earth — a real location on Earth; state the country; you can use this blog entry for ideas, but not everything listed is valid. If unsure ask in the discussion thread
The series take place mainly in Thailand, but Roanapur is a fictious place.

Thanks in advance!

Would Hataraku Maou-sama! count for "(N.17) Watch an anime with a main character that is a professional in their field"? It's a part-time job (although I think he gets promoted from part-time), but he does get paid. I'm not sure myself, so I'm asking just in case. (If so, what would be the profession?)

By our current definition it's technically valid, so you're good to go on it. You could put 'part time fast food cashier' or something similar.

Thanks! I may end up using Yusa Emi (also a main) instead though, since I think that's an easier job to put a name to, haha.

For (N.17) Watch an anime with a main character that is a professional in their field, would Dino or any of the employees from Blend-S be valid? Dino's a manager, is that considered to be a professional in the field?

He's getting paid for this, right? Then he is valid for this item.

As an addition to the reply above, it's not just one episode. You need to watch the full series for it to count.

Is it ok if I add screenshots to some entries that don't require them? For example:
(Ap.07) Watch an anime by a studio with 3 to 30 anime in MAL's database- I added a screenshot because it is possible that this can change, also:
(Ad.05) Watch an anime without a Licensor listed- what exactly are licensors and can they be added?
