Default Anime-Planets - Monthly Marathon Club


Welcome to the Monthly Marathon Club! All members of Anime-Planet are welcome to get together and marathon anime and read manga from a specific themed selection so we can discuss, review, and make recommendations together once a month.

~Leader~

How it Works: Once each month (dates may vary from month to month), the marathon will receive its own thread in the club section. Choose some anime from the list provided and watch it all. Then just post how many episodes/chapters you watched/read in total in the thread provided. Make sure you put COMPLETED LIST at the top of your post or it might not be counted. Episodes watched will go towards a point system. Counting will go as follows:
1 Episode = 1 point
1 Volume = 1 point
1 One Shot = 1 Point
1 OVA = 2 points
1 Movie = 3 points
rec / user review = .5 points
Bonus 5 points if you completely finish a series


Note: No matter how many episodes the OVA has it still counts as 2 points. If there are exceptions you will be told in the MM thread for that month.
Note: The Bonus 5 points for shows longer than 25-26 episodes will get 5 points per 25 episodes watched.
Counting will go as follows for Catch Up events:
11 episode series = 1 point
12 episode series = 2 points
13 episode series = 3 points
24-25 episode series = 4 points
26-49 episode series = 5 points
50-52 episode series = 8 points
53+ episode series = 10 points
rec / user review = .5 points
Prizes for doing a Monthly Marathon:
  1. One lucky person with the most Points will get a BADGE to go on your AP profile! If you wish to have a banner made for the forums just make a request in this thread so action can be took
  2. Company while you marathon the shows with fellow Anime-Planet members
  3. Hours of anime added to your watched list
  4. Knowing you have helped out the site by adding more content to it
  5. TACO Points for TACO members

Recommendations: Please add Recommendations for these series once you've watched them! Every single recommendation made helps out the thousands of people who use the database each month to find new stuff to watch. Everyone who participates in this Monthly Marathon should add recommendations for other series they think a person would like, if they can think of any.

User Reviews: User reviews don't have to be many paragraphs, or even have good English. They can be as little as a single paragraph just to explain what you thought of the series and any extra tips for the reader. The longer and more detailed the better, of course.

If you aren't a member of TACO yet, please consider Joining Here!

TACO Rules for Recommendations and User Reviews:
  • You need to make recommendations/reviews for the series that are a part of the marathon event at that time.
  • Recommendations and reviews must be made within 3 days of the end of the event to get the TACO bonus points.
  • Even if you didn't participate in the event (because you had already seen the titles, etc), if you hadn't made recommendations or reviews already for that series you can add them in the same time frame to get the points.
    Note: If you remake a Recommendation you have already made to attempt to claim more points, you will be disqualified.
  • As always, please only make recommendations for SOLID pairings. Do not add bad recommendations just because you want the points, as that wastes valuable time.
TACO Points:
75 Points for making at least 5 recommendations (more is encouraged) for the series that are a part of the Monthly Marathon event at the time.

Also, is there gonna be a thanksgiving marathon coming up?

no thanksgiving (November) event will be held as both lemur and I don't have time for it and we're already almost 2 weeks into the month, it is very short notice for people to gather all their anime goodies. so we're going to put all out planning into making the christmas event awesome along with all the months to follow

i assume lemur will run and update the Halloween event tonight/tomorrow

Yup- the score is counted mostly, just resolving some issues about Rec's before posting the final update.

As chii said, 2 weeks into the month is kinda late. So we are going to kick it off with Christmas instad. (technically WYH was the first, but as it predates the MM moniker, its kinda in iffy territory.)

Feel honored, dedicating my 1k'th post on this :P

Awesome, it's up! I'll definitely try to join as many of these as possible.
We already talked about it a tiny bit, but I'd like to suggest a massive summer-holiday marathon when the time comes, but that's still a long time away.

Interesting. I failed some of the previous wasting events, but I'll try to win the next ones for the banner (which I usually don't like, but it's for a swaggering reason, so I'll apply myself)

I'm gonna be in a place where I got a lotta time on my hands during Christmas, and I was planning on marathoning anime anyway, so sign me up.
