    I guess I should pitch in about the few shows that I picked up from this season.

    Bunny Girl Senpai: First episode was pretty decent, haven't watched anymore of it yet due to not having much time, but I'll get back to it soon, hopefully.

    Thunderbolt Fantasy: I feel like it's weaker than the first season, maybe it ran dry for me since I watched it right after the first season but I don't feel as excited watching puppets slaying each other anymore. Maybe I'll get more into it further into the show.

    Karakuri Circus: Started it today, and it was a pleasant surprise, it was a pretty entertaining fighting shounen with puppets, and considering that it's gonna last 3 seasons I hope it remains like this.

    Baki: Technically it's from the last season but since I started it recently (and that it's still airing) it's pretty damn fun, and might end up in my favorites due to all the fun villains it has. (Also Dorian is best girl).

    Conception: Not as hard to watch as much as it feels insulting, if you want to make Hentai then just fucking make Hentai. Not even sure who do the creators plan on marketing if they're gonna treat it as a show about the consequences of sex but with the sex taken out. Not sexy in any sense of the word.

    The few that are left are comedy shorts, Honda and Tiramisu are pretty great, Pingu is still Pingu, Chitose-chan is kinda irritating, but I don't have much to say about any of them.

    Is it somehow possible to see top 100 ranked participants in the challenge? I mean when you go to your challenge and then "community" it only shows where you are placed and if you go with incognito it shows you the top 10. But is there possible to see for example what it would take to be top 1000 in yearly challenge when I'm currently in rank 2500~.

    Not really interested in "competing" but it would be nice to see somehow just how many anime you need to watch if you wanna achieve seasonal top 100 etc.

    looking through that list it looks like mostly lairs or new users for the annual one since anything counts and they add their backlog. Treat it as a personal challenge more then anything else.

    Yeah but that doesn't change the fact that it's kinda stupid to not be able to look deeper into the "rankings" without making alt accounts or something. ":D" Was more interested seeing stats/rankings about seasonal challenge's too, but decided to post question here since this was more general question.

    I'm having a real blast with this season, btw. I have:
    • Golden Kamuy 2nd season - It's even more bonkers than last season and even though I miss the food porn, the characters are playing off each other so well.
    • Hinomaru Sumo - Maybe the first show that makes Sumo look awesome. The animation and the fights are intense.
    • Karakuri Circus - A good and compelling story with good fights and some hints of edge done right.
    • Merc StoriA - It's soothing to watch. Just an iyashikei with stories about character growths. I like it though.
    • Run with the Wind - Good and realistic sport show.
    • Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san - Just hilarious when it's about the customer service.
    • SSSS.Gridman - A really compelling story with so much love for the little details. You can really see that the creators actually cared about this one. The characters are also phenomenal.
    • SAO: Alicization - Well, more SAO, but like 5% better than the previous ones. It has all the problems of the other ones, but it's polished enough that I can live with them.
    • That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime - Just really enjoyable for some reason. Also human-form of slime ftw.
    • Tsurune - Realistic teenagers with realistic conflicts. Good drama and good depiction of the sport.

    So I have no problem to fulfill the challenge with stuff that I really enjoy.
