First, this challenge is serious, if you're not up to dedicate your time to whatever you might get; don't enter the challenge. This thread is similar to "2019 Anime Watching Challenge" thread, therefore this thread belongs in this forum.

General information :
A wheel-decide that picks a random anime for you out of thousands. Anime before the year 1970 are not included in the list whatsoever. OVAs, ONAs, specials, movies, etc are all included. Once you spin the wheel; you're obliged to watch whatever you get, of course you're allowed to quit; but that would be a real disappointment. If you somehow get an anime that you've already seen, simply respin. Translated or not, matters, you're allowed to respin if the anime isn't translated, but it would be the best if you didn't. The two only exceptions are if it's not available online or isn't translated. If one or both of the two exceptions happened you need to respin from the first wheel, or just call it quits.

Rules :
1. Posting in the thread for anything besides entering the challenge is not allowed. You can leave whatever you want to say below your entry post. For any questions PM me.
2. Respins are not allowed, whether you get a bad anime or not. The two exceptions are if the anime isn't available online or if it isn't translated.
3. Once you spin it; you're obliged to watch it, prioritize it as much as you possibly can.
4. Cheating is of course strictly prohibited. This challenge is for fun; please don't enter the challenge for some other motive. Intentionally I'm making it so you can individually spin the wheel, therefore don't break the trust I put in you.
5. If you fail to finish the respected anime in 365 days after your entry you will get automatically disqualified; unless the anime is still airing & you're up to date.
6. For proof you need to post in episode discussions of whatever anime you get. Posts must have an adequate time difference. Each episode-discussion post must have at least 25 words, to elaborate on episode's contents. Participants that fail to post in episode discussions of the respected anime will immediately get disqualified from the challenge.
7. Once you decide to take up the challenge and once you spin the wheels, post the following things mentioned below.

Playing the challenge :
Once you decide to take up the challenge and once you spin the wheels, post the following things in the thread: the anime's year, the season, it's number (the one you use in, and it's name. If you quit - edit the post and say that you quit, since every participant is going to be listed in the thread. Same applies to winning, once you win - edit your post and tell us that you finished. You're allowed to enter again whether you lose or win; via editing your post & making a separate section for a new entry. If you lose/quit - you must wait for at least 3 days before entering again, if you win - you can enter again any time! Of course, this challenge is only for fun.

Layout to make it more formal:


Participants :

NOTE: A lot of people seem to mess up with counting/filters, therefore if you feel like it, you can post ONLY the year & season you got, and I'll do the rest of work for you, and just PM you the anime name.

I wanted to test out the wheels ( didn't know you could generate this kind of things on the internet)

Pretty easy: 2014, spring, Mangaka-san & Assistant-san to The Animation (specials)

@breathesunshine Bad way to begin the "saga" but you picked the best part of it. ^^

@FMmatron Isn't it often the case?

Nah, I did the challenged but unfortunately I forgot to post and there's a rule about " Each episode-discussion post must have at least 25 words, to elaborate on episode's contents." I want to clarify I didn't cheat and that's all.

Well, my first roll was:
Shin Obake no Q-tarou (forgot the number).

I didn't find shit, except for some random episodes from the 1965 series. I will watch this anime if anyone can show me where to watch it. Preferably translated, although since it's a kids show I think I could follow the "plot".

My second roll:
which was Eureka Seven. I'll gladly watch it.

38 episodes is pretty long compared to what I usually watch and I don't have any interest in bike racing, but we'll see how this goes. :o

Original Post:

EDIT 28/05/2019:
Entry #02

Year: 1994
Season: Fall
Number: 2
Anime: DNA²

This was a fourth reroll, as the other three were all long movies without english dubs/subs with less than 200 entries in the entire MAL. I see that this is available at YouTube with either english or portuguese dubs, so I've got it going for me. 12 episodes should be pretty fast to finish.

EDIT 11/06/2019: I have finished watching DNA². Soon I'll be writing a review and spin the wheel once again.

EDIT 23/06/2019: It took me a while, but here it is. You can check out my review here! All in all, I really enjoyed this anime. So far I had two home-runs, I would say :)

Seems interesting so imma join.

The music was good. The character design is the only problem, it destroys the fighting scene in the library.
Summary: Some of the things of the characters are gone and who could've stole it?

I've never watched the anime, so starting at the recap makes sense. I'll start next month.

Edit: Due to personal reasons I won't be able to watch this. Sorry.

Saw this since the day you posted it. It has things I don't like, but I will try it. Will get the anime later on.


- Your main post should be more appealing. Make it more easy to read and not to look so heavy. It will turn participants away.
- Make it simpler or attract keywords about it. You can either bold words or make them a different color.
- Your post layout could be worked a bit better for when people post (for example, the one posted by a participant)
- Why are you using to shorten your links?
- You shouldn't force your participants to use hentai tho, make that optional. There are many on this site that don't like watching that
- Also, your post is rather heavy. What are you gonna do once you reach the character limit per post? (Since you didn't save any other below it)

Never did a challenge, so I thought it would be fun to participate.
I always let RANDOM.ORG decide the next anime I watch from my PTW, so I think this is a nice challenge. I like that it is not time limited (365 tho).

Am I doing this right OP?
Holy shit it is a hentai. I've never seen a hentai. Can I reroll, or do I have to suffer?

Going for a second round here, don't know if the wheels hate me by giving me anime with a long episode count or that they love me by giving me high rated anime.
Edit: Pretty good series 9/10 Definitely recommend to those who haven't watched it yet.
