Step 1. Click one of these links
Luck of the Draw ✧ Sweet Treats

Step 2. Restack the Anime/Manga Challenge Stack

Step 3. Complete or re-watch 1 anime/manga (*) by
Fri Mar 31, 23:59 PST

Step 4. Receive your profile badge after the deadline

 

The maneki-neko badge is for the Luck of the Draw stack and the shortcake badge is for the Sweet Treats stack.

(*) Anime/Manga you completed before the challenge started (Feb 1) will not count. You will need complete something new, something you're part-way through, or re-watch/read something you've finished before.
(*) Ongoing series will be accepted for the challenge if you've seen/read up to the recent episode/chapter. Do NOT set publishing manga to completed as 0/0 chp/vol, you won't get a badge!

Please note:
Badges will be given out after the challenge deadline has passed. They are added manually, not automatically, so please be patient.




Get ready for Valentine's with one of our new limited edition themes~

Claim them before March 31st!

Saw the new designs earlier and gotta say they are cute. Liked the purple one the most~

and glad to see that the stack challenges are finally back 🎉
Anime/Manga you completed before the challenge started (Feb 1) will not count. You will need complete something new, something you have on-hold, or re-watch/read something you've finished before.

Finally lol but how will the rewatch count? as in, adding the rewatching count or setting it as Rewatched, while updating the episodes?

Here's hoping High Card finish airing before this is over

do you still get a badge if it is on your plan to watch, but you complete it within the time frame?

Yes. The only requirement is to restack the stack and complete/rewatch something within the timeframe; it doesn't matter what status it had before you started.
Hello can you please watch Kitaku-bu Katsudou Kiroku

Lets go! Time to watch Ben-To!

So it works like this?

First, I click the Restack button, then I watch the anime and when I'm done I add it to my list and thats it?

It's finally back!

So more reason for me to rewatch Galaxy Angels!

Hmm, that Sweet Treats stack looks awfully familiar (Let Them Eat Cake! Welcome to the Pâtisserie. [BL Edition])... Anyways, time to read more food-related manga.

Oh, thank you for finally adding past and new challenges on the Challenges tab. But I'd love to see some more features implemented:

Adding the Rewatch count should suffice o/

Really? It's a coincidence then :'D We come up with the idea ourselves and then hunt around the web/our memories looking for things that match. If there aren't enough series for our idea, then we rinse and repeat.

Is it necessary to have my list of anime and manga public? Is that I currently have the list in private and I don't know if it is necessary for it to be able to see if I have seen/read something from the stack

Nope. While badges are added "manually," it's not via visual inspection or something. You can keep your lists as private without any issues. The main point is to restack the challenge so we know which accounts the script needs to check when giving out the badge.

Forgive my ignorance, not done this before. Last year I was about half way through Hayate no Gotoku! before I got caught up with other stuff.. If I finish it within this month will that count? Its actually quite an enjoyable show.

Edit, P.S I have no idea what stacks are
One day... I will kill you all. Just wait. I will not fail. I will kill you.... I wasn't there. I let myself be separated from you.

Thanks, do I need to do anything about stacks, I notice there is an intrest stacks things in my profile options but never used it before, is it something I need to sign upto or activate somehow?

Ah I see, I had the same question too. I guess finishing Spy Classroom within the season would count even though I have watched it before the challenge started.

Ive found if you click on the links in the heading it lists stuff you need to qualify, not sure if you need to do anything else other than watch though.

New stack challenges, NICE!

On an other note, during the summer challenge I never received either of the badges.
At the time I mentioned this in the thread and I was told it was a very busy time so they would get back to me later..
Don't get me wrong I understand this is of the lowest priority haha
But I'm still 100% sure I did and completed both challenges correctly, but never heard anything after that.

Could someone still help me with this? I'm really hoping I can still get them

As an old-timer in this, I can assure you that there are only two things that you need to do:

1. Click the RESTACK button which could be seen at the interest stack you would like to challenge. The links in the header lead you to the interest stacks, one is titled Luck of the Draw, and the other is titled Sweet Treats


2. COMPLETE an anime/manga in that stack (just one will do) within the time period stated on the post by setting that anime/manga as completed just like what is shown below.


This will surely give you the badge @Roch2001, no sign-ups or anything else required.

Is the number of anime in a particular Challenge just the prerogative of whoever creates the Challenge? Just curious as it went 25, 48, and now 29. (I guess it's approx 15 titles per month.)

uh I am feeling that the Sweet Treats stack is a bit too much leaning towards female audiences... All of those Shoujo, Josei and BL titles and then we have "Sono Otoko, Amatou ni Tsuki" which is Seinen but still looks very much like something mostly for female audiences (and the mangaka worked on several BL titles), same with "Maou-sama ni Parfait wo Tsukuttara Yorokobaremashita"and "Patissier-san to Ojou-san" which isn't tagged for any demographics but looks like the same as Shoujo titles (in some other sites they have "shoujo" label)
"Choco Parfait", "Cake Ouji no Spécialité", "Ikai no Himemiko wa Pâtissière" and "Nanoha Yougashiten no Ii Shigoto" all have partial English translations and "Deaimon" still is ongoing but the scanlation team is far behind and and "King Sweets" doesn't seem to have any English scanlation or official translation
At least "Koguma no Cake-ya-san" (Baby Bear's Bakery) is licensed by Denpa and you can buy it if you want for pirates like myself I couldn't find it ripped online anywhere
But time to read more shoujo titles ig

Ah, the maneki-neko is cute ^_^ But the anime in stack are unwatchable, so I'll pass. The idea is good though: rather than "hey, watch these 50 titles" this "hey, watch/read just one" will definitely attract much more users (I assume that's exactly your goal, well done).

Im very unclear how Stampede will work if it won't finish before the challenge is up, as well as very confused what to do with something like Yatsura that I'm currently watching. Will that count? I had it on reading, not on hold.

Going by the information on the stack: "Complete at least 1 anime (*) on this list by March 31st!"
I think anything that you mark as completed during the event would suffice. Especially since continuations of previously started shows and even rewatches are also allowed.
