CLOSED FOR 2012!
Monthly Marathon Proudly Presents:
Anime-Planet Secret Santa
Ever want to recommend someone an anime or manga that they might not have normally wanted to watch/read or might have overlooked? With Anime-Planets Secret Santa you can!
The goal is to make someone watch and review something you think they would love or you could be a little evil and make them watch something terrible! Careful with that since you might get a lump of coal in your sock in return!
If you wish to participate in this fun filled holiday challenge send me your Anime-Planet User Name and the link to your Anime-Planet profile. Make sure that your list is updated as much as possible before you submit it and make note of the following in your message:

Due by November 9th.
November 10th I will send you someones list through the forum PM system and then you will pick 3 anime/manga for this person to choose from and send me the 3 choices. NOT THEM! I will be the middleman and pass on the titles to the recipient so who your secret santa is is safe until the 25th of December. Only I will know who gave who their choices. Who you get will be chosen at random from all the participants.
The anime or manga selections must be:
No music videos.
Must have subtitles/translation, be complete and avaliable to find.
Due by November 18th
November 19th you will get your 3 choices sent to you by me. Choose one of these titles to watch/read then review. If you wish you can watch/read and review them all! Everyone is responsible for getting their own material for the watch/read. If for some reason you can't watch/read any of the titles you were given you can request another batch but you can only do this ONCE. I highly discourage doing this even once though.
Everyone should then post their reviews up on Anime-Planet on December 24th or anytime during that week is fine. Putting the words Secret Santa Review at the top is a good idea. December 25th is the day you will find out who your secret santa is on the forums!
You don't have to keep the anime you were given a secret till then but keeping it a secret might be more fun so I encourage people NOT to talk about the anime they were given!
Everyone that participates and writes a review will get a special badge to go on your profile! IMPORTANT: You must write a review of your title to get this badge.
Happy Holidays and Happy Anime watching!
