  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.

People who completed the challenge: Gosick, ME

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.

Well, the Japanese titles are often so damn long, it wouldn't surprise me if there are lots of people who forget the name, haha :D

Oha, I see. Read the description carefully of the anime now and it seems like it'll be deep shit. I like that :D Drama is one of my favorite genres, if not my favorite one in general. How about you? Do you have any favorite genres?

Oh yes, definitely. I admit, it's pretty difficult to animate a fifty-hour game but I guess the anime (first season) would have been even better if there were 25-26 episodes instead of 13 ... Ah well, at least we got two new sequels, hrhr <3 I agree, these three are also one of my favorites. Imo, Oowada's and Chihiro's screentime were the most impressive ones ... I loved their backgroundstory and personality. Kirigiri x Naegi is my OTP, though, they have such a great relationship <3

You probably mean Danganronpa 2 with the completely new characters, right? Well, I can imagine that it's kinda hyped now because the anime is airing ... But I'd say both are really, really good. Also, have you ever heard of Ultra Despair Girls? It's another game of the Danganronpa series where you play Komaru Naegi, Makoto's sister, as the main protagonist. The gameplay is different but as enjoyable as the other ones.

I know Dramatical Murder, but I haven't seen or played it yet ... Seems like the ratings here on AP aren't that good, unfortunately :c They both sound very interesting, though, especially Lamento. Are you probably also into Otome games or Dating Sims for girls? There's a game where one of the characters has a similar backgroundstory to the plot of Lamento. And I'm impressed, the soundtrack is freaking amazing! :OO Really enjoyed listening to this, the Latin version of Lamento was my favorite here! I recognized the woman who sang this also sang the opening and ending of Steins;Gate, is it possible? I'm not really sure, but her voice sounds so familiar ... Anyways, thank you very much for sending me the songs, I love them <3

Yeah, I don't dislike Bleach subbed, I just prefer their English voices.

Have you seen Tokyo Ghoul? I loved the first season because of the directing. I love the contrast in episode 8 to death. I found the second season of the anime really boring and I don't like how they changed the ending. But I also felt like the manga had some stuff that felt unneeded or dragged on. I was reading Re, but I've put it on indefinite hold for the time being. I was having a lot of trouble forcing myself to pay attention, especially since so much of it was focused on different characters than the first. 

Oneshots are always iffy. Longer ones tend to be better since there is obviously more time to develop the story. Some that I liked are: Akuma to Tsuki no Yoru, Ginrou no Sakura, Covered in Cinders, Hanshin, Stray Dog, Angel Sky, Enren Debut, Kawaii Oresama, and Atashi no Okiniiri.

Yeah, me too.

Mm, I have. It's one of my favorite animes *^*

I really liked the characters and the storyline was also really interesting. I actually enjoyed the second season. I know it's not the same as the manga [so people say] but I still really enjoyed it. Though, I did like the first season better.

Mm, I agree. I watched a few One Shots, they weren't the best. It's just difficult to squeeze in so much information in only 20-60 pages.

It happens rarely that I don't know the name of an anime but Fudanshi is totally new to me, hahaha. Oh, I really lag behind currently. Would you recommend Kokoro Connect, though? I've heard many good things about it but I haven't found the time yet to watch it :c

Oh, you should really watch or play the games because they're way deeper than the anime ... Although, I enjoyed it as well :D But the characters are so well-developed! Did you have a favorite one there?

Finished the Let's Play series of Super Danganronpa 2 yesterday and it's almost as good as the first one. I'm looking forward to watch the current anime of the season <3 The chronology of the anime confuses me as well, though, but I personally would say that the Despair Arc could be called as Danganronpa 2. Lamento looks pretty interesting from what I've seen on the pictures, what is it about? Have fun, then :D

See, I do prefer Bleach dubbed. But the sub is fine. It took time to adjust to One Piece subbed, though. At first everyone's voice annoyed me except for Nami's. The worst forever will be Goku's Japanese voice in Dragon Ball, though. I just can't take it seriously, especially since she also does Gohan's and older Goten's voices as well. I don't care if you are related, you will still not have the same voice. Especially an old lady's voice -_- Little Trunk's voice sometimes sounds like an little old man, too. And Buu sounds downright creepy at times. I don't know about Trunks and Buu, but I don't think anyone likes Goku's Japanese voice.

For me it's because I love stories. I just want to experience as many as possible for the pure sake of knowing them.

Mm, me too actually. I watched a few episodes in subbed, but I didn't like it as much. I don't know whether it was just because I was used to dubbed, or if it was just the Japanese in general. 

Mm, well, I'm actually trying to read some mangas now. I'm reading Tokyo Ghoul right now, though I'm not that far into it. I also read a One Shot manga, but honestly, it was just kind of crap. x_x

I would have followed sooner, but I tend to forget the follow option exists (;w;)

It's true that the dub will alway sound off since they physically can't keep all th context when dubbing. However, I do think Funimation does a good job (for the most part). The best thing I will forever be grateful for, though, is Funimation's dub of Ghost Stories. If you have not seen that, you should. The only reason I ended up watching it was because they explained the backstory at a convention I went to. The anime failed in Japan, so they sold it to Funimation with some big name anime they wanted. Since the anime failed, they just wanted to sell it and told Funimation they could do whatever they wanted with it. Because of that, it is nothing but Western humor parody gag. There are also two youtube videos with the funniest scenes I can link you if you'd rather watch that than the entire anime.

For some reason I always feel like I am in a race to watch everything, so I definitely know the feeling of wanting to quickly start the next anime. But sometimes I just feel really tired and lazy, so focusing on an entire episode becomes difficult.

Haha, not a problem. :P

I've only seen one anime dubbed, which was Bleach. I guess when I first started watching, I thought it would be easier just to watch it in English so that I wouldn't get distracted by th subtitles. I've learned not to get distracted by them, though. Mm, I haven't seen that, I'll make sure to look into it sometime. c:

Yeah, exactly. I want to squeeze as much anime as I can in, not really sure why. Maybe just so I can say I've watched a lot? Who knows. :P Me too, some days I just don't really feel like doing anything, so watching even one episode feels like a chore.
