    I don't have anything marked, because I still have a huge list of "watching" to clear, plus there's tons I want to watch this year, and I also have so many I want to watch. I'll probably kick the year off right with some Mob Psycho 100% Season 2, I'm stoked for it!

    Not bad for the first day. I'll try to stay in the top-200 like I did in the previous one (though I'll try to get even further if possible =D)

    There should really be a system that auto-disqualifies obvious cheaters.
    The challenge hasn't been started a full day ago and:

    Link me to this page? The fonts shouldn't be busted there.

    That being said we can't stop people from abusing the system. We do in the future plan to change the rankings to be specific only to people you follow/selected others.

    Also keep in mind we have no way of distinguishing people who just joined the site and set up their list here. They join challenges too, and since they just set up their list and set things to watched, those appear for the challenges. We allow a way to 'reset' the challenge for this reason, but we can't check and force every person to do that.

    To add onto what Sothis said
    Looking at some of their lists it seems that they've watched a bunch of shorts and music videos, which is doable in 24 hours. So technically not cheating either ;)

    Life on Anime 3 weeks 0 days 13 hours 9 minutes

    Now to see how much the above changes throughout this year. ^^

    Also:

    Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, because the last episode became available for non-subscribers today, lol...

    For a first complete anime...probably a Persona anime, since I'm a few episodes into Persona 4 but don't know what the next show in the franchise I'll watch after it.

    Luckily I only have 3 episodes left of Log Horizon Season 2, so starting off with that, it seems. After that, it's onto Food Wars, which I'm hyped for.

    Hi,

    1. You could limit entering challenges only for users with accounts that are 1 month old. This may discourage the creation of profiles just to beat the challenge and new users would probably import their animes within that month. Currently, mostly new users importing everything they watched in their life go to the top.

    2. You can use the "Life on Anime" feature (or badges) to compare if a user is adding more time than possible for a challenge. AllaliAdel joined in August 2018 and in those 6 months watched a year worth of anime? Fafon watched 6 years worth of anime from April to December 2018, LoL (Although I see there are plans to delete that account). They must be using The Hyperbolic Time Chamber to watch their shows, lol.
