It's that time of year again—Challenge time! Our volunteer community teams over at AWC and MRC have put together another exciting challenge this year to help boost those Anime/Manga List stats. A very big thank you to everyone involved with the organization and running of these year-long events, and to Rinarin for the banner above.

What does it mean to participate in these challenges?
You will be watching/reading one anime/manga title for each item in your challenge list, which meets the specific criteria requested. The purpose of these challenges is not only to watch/read more, but also to go beyond your standard fare.

Depending on your chosen difficulty level, you will watch between 20-70 anime and read between 10-65 manga—a great way to start expanding that Manga List a little instead of it sitting empty ;)

How do I join?
Head over to the Sign-Up threads (linked below) and follow the directions there. After the initial rules post, we have a step-by-step How to Play instructions in both Sign-Up threads.
Anime ☆ Manga


Do I have to sign up to participate?
You're welcome to take the challenge list and watch/read whichever anime/manga you like, if you don't want to play with everyone else. But signing up allows you to keep better track of your progress, compare challenge lists with other users, and gives you bragging rights with a little banner. Plus, it's an excuse to have fun in the community!


So what do you think?
Are you up to the challenge?

You can join at any time during the year. Make sure to check the version of the challenge you are interested in to see their deadline (last day to participate).

Badges are user donated. We usually have for participating and completing it. You can use any at any time, wherever you want. Head to the version of the challenge you are taking part and check the banner posts. They should be there.

If you need help with something, please check the discussion thread for the challenge you are taking part of (you can find it in the first post of the sign up thread). Once you are over there, let us know what in particular you aren't understanding after reading so we know how to help you.

I am also a bit confused. How can submit/in what post should i submit what i already watched and what im planning to watch?
For example they ask me to watch an ONA at first bronze challenge, so is it enough to find a ONA with only 1 Episode and the first task is finished ?

Do i have to add what im watching in my "Sign up Code" ?

This means your text should neither read like the gushing of an overzealous fan nor the raging of a cynical hater. Overly emotional commentaries should be restricted to friends and blogs.
