Larkawolfgirl's 2016 Anime Challenge- Open to everyone

About: You must watch all seasons of all listed anime in 2016 to complete the challenge. I chose some of my personal favorites as well as some I have not watched yet. Series are from various genres for diversity. Just tell me if you want to participate in the challenge and I will add you to the list of participants.

Rules:

  1. You must watch all 40 series listed here.
  2. If you don't mind, please mention my challenge on your profile to help spread the word (as well as fun!) 
  3. You don`t have to rewatch anything you already completed.
  4. A good way to keep track of the series is to create a custom list like the one I did.
  5. Feel free to discuss any of the anime listed with me, since as I said, these are some of my favorites.
  6. When you finish let me know. I will check to make sure you did finish everything, and then your name will be listed as a winner forever on my profile ^.^

People who completed the challenge: Gosick

My own countdown: I just need to finish Log Horizon 2

This challenge was inspired by ScarletRain's. Please check her's out as well! (I am participating in her's as well).

I waste most of my life thinking about fictional characters. I like all genres, but my favorites tend to be action, romance, fantasy, sci fi, and yaoi.

Basically my life--as well as this page--is full of inconsistencies. I don't really have any defined standards by which I rate things (mostly it is based on the plot and my overall level of enjoyment).  

About my anime ratings (since people sometimes ask)

.5 One of the worst things I've seen

1 Dang that's bad

1.5 That is pretty bad

2 Not my thing but I saw a bit of potential

2.5 I saw some potential but aspects of it were just bad (or undeveloped)

3 My sort of catch-all category for average. Anime with a good plot but bad development, unncessisary aspects, etc.

3.5 Good plot and any negatives are outweighted by the plot and/or characters

4 Really good and few negative aspects

4.5 Truly great

5 My favorites (nearly perfect) 

My manga ratings are less specific, and more of the 3 ratings fall on the "this is good but only average" side instead of it having specific negatives aspects I disliked.

Larkawolfgirl says...  Haha I'm an idiot and only saw the last part of your message at first since I didn't relize you put multiple quotes from me. Oops. 

My fault, I tend to leave long messages, especially when I quote the other person first.  But that helps me (and the other person) keep track of the conversation without having to scroll back through pages and pages of comments to be reminded what we were talking about!

Larkawolfgirl says...  Udemy is a website that lets you take online courses. There are both free and paid courses. I am taking some to try and boost my career and personal goals. They aren't fun exactly, but some do make me feel good about myself.

I Googled Udemy to find out more - what kinds of courses are you taking to help you with career and personal stuffs?

Larkawolfgirl says...  I thought the guidline about custome lists was just a rule of thumb instead an actual rule. I actually didn't even notice the privacy setting until yesterday, otherwise a bunch of my lists would have been on private already. Hmm, then I feel like I will take the guidline about making a custom list out of my contest description then since I thought I could view the lists to make it easier for me to check. I can't do that if they are all private.

I know, I wanted to make mine all public, so others could see my progress, but the guidelines clearly show me that my lists are really private lists.

Larkawolfgirl says...  I watched HxH 2011 and then read the remaining manga chapters to catch up. Hisoka is an interesting character to say the least. Back when I had only seen the first few episodes one of my friends was watching it on a laptop near me. I could hear it but not see the screen. I was literally freaking out that Hisoka was trying to rape Gon. Later he proved that my suspicions were not that far-fetched. Have you gotten to the scene where he literally gets a boner? (I think it is during the Heaven's Arena arc).

Killua is my favorite :3. I thought I liked Kirapika the best until after the Yorknew City arc. He wasn't on much after that and was so antisocial. Two of the most recent manga chapters was about Kirapika's past and how his clan was murdered. It was really sad. He used to be a happy, ambitious kid. Anyway, I still like him a lot, but Killua as big a cutie patootie as an ex-killer-assassin can be. He cares so much for Gon and is such a great brother to Alluka (who I'm sure you haven't met yet).

You are right, haven't met Alluka yet, and haven't seen the Hisoka rape scene.  I'm kinda surprised to hear, he doesn't seem to be the type.  Neither interested in guys, nor must be in control control-freak.  Although he does like to be in charge of things...  It will be an interesting scene...

I haven't yet seen much of the HxH (2011) yet.  Am interested to watch how this reboot treats everyone differently than the original!

Larkawolfgirl says...  Restarting Shippuden sounds like such a pain, but at least you will get to rewatch the best part (at least in my opinion). The Gaara arc! I would have bawled my eyes out if my sister hadn't already spoiled it for me. Speaking of spoilers, I was super pissed because someone at school told me about the ending to the Pain arc. This was before the anime had gotten to it too, so it wasn't like he assumed I already knew. 

It's a real PITA, but in a good way, since we'll be rewatching Naruto first before we even get to start Shippuden, and my sis isn't they type who will be dedicated to watching a few episodes every day, so it will take us FOREVER!!!

Larkawolfgirl says...  I was the same way with D.Gray Man. I watched until the end of the dub. I don't have anything against watching things subbed, but certain things I just like watching while doing something else. I would have continued D.Gray Man, but looking at the fact that I had only watched half of it was a huge demotivator, especially since it felt like it had gone down hill after the Krory arc. I really enjoyed that and the Miranda arc. Nothing else held my interest that much.

Yes, it was hard to make the decision to continue on with subbed only when we'd been watching the Dub, but we wanted to finish it!  Man, if we'd only known it was incomplete, we probably wouldn't have done that...
