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 to complete the challenge.
  2. If you have already watched a series, then it is already completed for the challenge.
  3. If you don't mind, please mention my challenge on your profile to help spread the word (as well as fun!) 
  4. You can create a custom list like the one I did to help you keep track of which series you still need to complete.
  5. 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, ME, rikkie2234

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.

Would you prefer being away from the road? The nature trail really sounds nice. Haha so many fans, I get that though since you've had them before. Have you decided on a place yet or are you still looking?

Haha what kind of camera did you have? And what happened to it? That's what a lot of people just do now with their phones is take pictures of their pets or just anything really xD I'll admit I take a lot of random pictures with my phone too x)

Oh I'm sure the longer wigs can get really annoying with slipping down, it's kinda the same problem with glasses if you have them. Honestly I'd consider just wearing my regular shoes instead of whatever would match my cosplay since it's a ton of walking all over the place. I'm really considering cosplaying as Arima Kousei from Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, so formal shoes would be ideal, but I think I could get away with just my black Nikes unless I really wanted to go full out. Although my formal shoes are actually really comfortable and I've had them for probably 5 or 6 years now and they're still going strong, so it wouldn't be too bad. I've gone all day in them before without a problem. And as great a change of clothes would be I think a backpack would get really annoying with a cosplay, I ditched mine after the first day at Sakura-con in March and went with a drawstring instead because it was too bulky. Although I could get a school bag like they have...idk still a lot to think about><

Haha that Haruhi shirt sounds awesome, I'd love to see something like that x3 Do you think anyone recognized you with your simple cosplays? Or did you really care about being recognized at all when it's that simple?

Kinda answered that question in my little tangent up there xD Since it's just a school uniform I don't think it would be too elaborate, it basically would be like going to a nice dinner or something except less formal, unless I'm missing something?

Haha well he really did as much as he could to throw you out there, and I'm sure it was really good in the end for you. That's really good your college does that, I'm sure it helps a ton with what you're studing for. Pre-engineering is kinda just taking the prereqs and hoping you pass, which is completely different than that haha and from what I know actually being in the department isn't much of a difference unless you work with like clubs or something like that. I could be very wrong though since I haven't looked into it much.

Haha dang so has any progress been made with that at all? And if it's being sold, do you get to share in the revenue or where does it all go?

Haha ok that's definitely a class I must take before I graduate, that sounds so awesome!! I don't think I've ever had a moment where the whole class or teacher geeks out, maybe because I haven't had a class where everyone was like minded like that, althoug I've definitely had teachers and TAs that were. Not for stuff like that though but for what they were teaching, which was still cool and something I'd geek out about too :3

Funny story about that Oreimo gif, I think I had just seen the fandub video of it right before getting your comment which was really funny xD

Oh wtf tinyurls make things even more sketchy, like I get wanting to do all that but it just doesn't work, at least to people who are smart enough. Haha yeah I'm sure you'll enjoy it a lot better when you're doing it for yourself, being held to those restrictions is just too much

Yup that's the punchline, since everyone in STEM majors always laugh at people in liberal arts majors like business because they're not actually doing any "real" work xD (I know you're in lit/english so don't take that the wrong way, it's just a little joke since we're all sciency and stuff ><) I would feel the same in that marketing class though, it honestly wouldn't feel like I was actually doing anything since you're kinda just learning to deal with people. Like it's great and all and kind has to be done, but in the end it doesn't exactly accomplish what actually needs to be done. Haha group work in that class is just like let the people who actually think this is useful take care of it

Hahaha I can totally see the English major doing that, that's really funny xD I don't think that would earn any points since the one criterion was to use the barometer and that wouldn't be using the barometer ><

I'm really sorry, but I totally forgot what we were talking about, what would the x's and check marks be used for? >.<

Dang you keep adding to your insane collection haha I couldn't imagine being able to play all of those 0.o What did you think about the games you just finished? Hm so KH wasn't what you hoped it was? Sucks but I guess can't really do anything about that .-.

Yeah I don't think it works for me, you might have to send it to me directly. Can't wait to see it though!

Yea, db can be quite difficult to watch, but nostalgia glasses fix that for me :)

It's hard to find legitmate streaming sites that offer alot in the UK, I know we get quite a lot of shows cut off from us from places like crunchyroll just because of licensing which sucks cause I want to support the anime creators (subbed to crunchyroll) but its difficult with the limited amount of shows they offer here. For example, you can't stream one piece in UK on crunchyroll, yet you can in the US.

Sometimes you just gotta stream from that dodgy website tho :/

Oh, I also didnt realise dbz (and pokemon) was an anime till I decided I wanted to watch it again many years ago and started searching then internet, I then moved onto bleach and naruto before moving on to alot of the (in my opinion) better anime that exist, and then converting from dub to sub when I watched SAO when it first started to air since I thought the concept was awesome.

Next thing I know SUBS for life. xD
