I'm going to have to disagree on this. Sure, if you have a bunch of trivial little achievements it might ruin the appeal, but to me they're like the icing on the cake. It feels good to get a little reward reminding me of the experiences I've had while watching/reading.

For example, if one were to create achievements for watching a certain amount of works from a certain studio, we should have a Sunrise, a Ghibli, etc. but not that one studio that produced 5 works that most people don't even know existed.

Unfortunately I do understand that most people would see achievements as nothing more than something to gloat about and try to watch/read as much as possible.

I also agree. For that matter, I'd say that the more specific achievements that have been suggested (whether genre specific or creator specific), are probably even better - because even if a person checks out an anime or manga because there's an achievement for reading it, it still got them reading or watching they wouldn't have read or watched otherwise, which is something laudable.

Has the threshold for the romance award been changed again?

I had it once, then it disappeared. Then when I hit 40 romance anime, I got it again
Now it's disappeared again ~_~

No clue why there's no Romance in the genres, it's, like, the most prominent part of Earl and Fairy...

Out of curiosity, is there an equivalent of the GAR achievement for manga? I didn't see it on the achievement list, but I might have missed it.

I realize that the plan is to freeze the achivement list, but before that happens, would it be possible to have achivement pairity between the two? For example, GAR badges for manga as well as anime, since a lot of the anime on the GAR list also have manga forms, in addition to some manga that I think would qualify as GAR, but which have not received anime adaptations (like Crows & Worst).

Updated achievement lists with most of the titles posted here. Some titles are automatically matched by the genre ID (e.g. Free! is slice of life), so they don't need to be manually put on the list.

Changes can be seen here: https://github.com/rr-/malgraph4/commit/a53f757014963f7e5624a9bb37a17fd4d3466b4d

Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket doesn't seem to be popping up under the mecha achievement, although it's within the Mecha genre.

http://myanimelist.net/anime/82/Mobile_Suit_Gundam_0080:_War_in_the_Pocket

I also suggest that Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin should be added to the GAR achievement.

Your profile was 1.7 days old, and you finished Gundam 0080 less than 24 hours ago. No wonder it wasn't shown. It's refreshed now.

What about a Dropping Achievement? Since there's one for Zero Dropped has ever been considered one for more than 100 dropped series?

Deciding to stop watching a lot of anime (for whatever reason) is an unusual event, so why not get some sort of recognition for it? It's trivial, but I'd consider it as an achievement, along with the ones for studios/prolific creators/whatever else I've forgotten. If it did become one it would probably have levels like 25/50/75/100 or a similar staggered amount. I'd probably never qualify for the final level, since I've forced myself to finish anything I've started now. Yes, even Pupa, ugh.

Although I remember one of the admins saying that they weren't considering any new achievements. That makes me sad.

It really is sad, there are still lots of good achievements possible. But isn't that something the MALgraph staff and not the MyAnimeList Aministrators do?

Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I meant one of the head honchos of MALgraph.

I'm afraid we're very close to the upper limit of number of achievements, and adding any more would ruin it. We're set to adding Space one for anime, but that would be all. Thanks for the suggestions though.

Ah, OK. Thanks for the clarification. fri says "and adding any more would ruin it" so perhaps it's not a limit decided by the staff but by the website itself.

&%$*, I didn't think about that. I just assumed that more achievements would be hard to manage, or make more people just focus on getting achievements instead of watching and enjoying anime/manga. Wait...wouldn't that last point happen anyways? ARGH.

Anyways, the only achievements I can really think of to contribute (if they ever added any) are one based on how many you've dropped and those based on certain studios/authors/franchises. I think that ones based on studios/authors/franchises would be hard to manage because the levels would vary between achievements, but they would probably just go for 25/50/75/100% of the total number of works contained within.

The first usage of the term "GAR" was in reference to Archer (aka "GARcher") from Fate/Stay Night.

Hmm, this argument doesn't work due the fact that Beelzebub is considered GAR as well :/

While they do transform and (some of them) use magic, it's more monster girl than magical girl. Really bad monster girl, but nonetheless.

Also since Romance has an achievement, I believe Action, Sci-Fi, Adventure, Sports and Horror should have achievements.
