    Welcome to the Anime Lottery Game (ALG)!

    This thread will essentially be a continuation of the Anime Lottery Club, which was initially put into hiatus after the Fall 2015 Season. With all the big changes coming to the forum, the old thread has been culled and thus this thread has been born. In addition, I, Gensan, shall be taking over as the host for Damias.

    So, you may be asking yourself, "What is the Anime Lottery Game?"
    Every season there are numerous new Anime titles, some much more popular, much more anticipated than others. Here at ALG we want to try and promote equal opportunity for each series airing in a specific season. Specifically by providing exposure to series that would be passed over because they seem uninteresting, or just plain bad. How we do this is quite simple, with a lottery! So, how does it work?

    1) Post in this thread expressing an interest in participating, before the posted deadline.
    2) Wait for the deadline.
    2.1) *Note* -- You may elect to take up a series at any point during the ALG Season. However, you will be responsible for finishing it before the posted deadline.
    3) You will be assigned a series, completely at random.
    4) Watch your series; feel free to discuss, praise, or complain in the individual Specific Anime Thread for that series.
    5) Once you finish your series, and before the posted deadline, report back to this thread to brag about your success, or wallow in your failure.
    5.1) Submitting a full review for the series, on the main website, isn't required, but is suggested.
    6) Repeat next season, if you dare.

    Series chosen will not be more than 1-cour, they won't be sequels, they won't be OVAs, and they won't be movies. In addition, the series will be contained to things that are readily available. If you end up with a series that doesn't have regular updates, then you will be allotted an extension or allowed to be assigned a new series.

    In the event that you receive a 2-cour show, usually because I end up assuming something will be 1-cour, or my source was incorrect, you have the option of either watching the first part of the 2-cour and using that as your "required" segment, or else, you can carry over the 2nd part into the next game.

    For example, you get a 2-cour show in Summer, and instead of putting your name into the hat for a Fall series, you simply participant in the Fall by continuing the series you were given in the Summer. However, if you wish to pick up a new series in addition to continuing your 2-cour show, that can be arranged, although you will be expected to complete both series by the next posted deadline of the Anime Lottery Game.

    You may not swap out the series you received for another. However, if you would like to sign up for another series, you can be assigned another series, at random, as many times as you want, until every series from the list is assigned to you.

    At the end of the season, participants may submit their series for "Worst Series of the Season." In the event that there are multiple series vying for the title, a vote will be held by all the participants. Whatever series wins, will hold that title, and anyone who was assigned that series will receive a custom avatar/award. Note: The more series you are assigned, the greater your chances are of winning this award.

    Claus#4 (work in progress)
    At the beginning of the season, in the event that a participant, or multiple participants, want a specific series to be included in the upcoming lottery, they can recommend a series (at most 2). In the event that there are more than 2, a vote will be held and the top 2 series will be added to the pool of series.

    So, now you may be asking yourself, "What if my assigned series sucks? What if I don't like it? Am I required to finish it?"
    The short answer is yes. After all, that is the point.

    The long answer is that there are some stipulations to this. If you really cannot bring yourself to finish your series, or you simply get caught up in other things and end up not finishing by the end of the season, then you have other options. Some may call these punishments, but I prefer to think of them as alternatives.

    Failure to finish a series before the end of the season results in suspension from playing next two seasons. However, this can be circumvented by any of the following:

    A) You will be assigned another, different series from the same season that you failed to complete, and must finish this series within 72 hours of assignment.

    B) You can elect to be assigned two series from the upcoming season, and must finish both before the end of the season.

    If you failed your alternative, the only way to avoid suspension is to watch Ping Pong Club and submit a full review for the series in it's respective review section on the main AP site.

    *The Brad Claus*
    If your screen name is, used to be, will be in the future, or ever was; "Bradalee," then none of the alternatives are available to you. The only way to avoid suspension is to film a live action interpretation of the series you were supposed to finish and post into this thread.

    *Please Note*
    Alternate Methods are subject to change and may change without notice. Being ignorant of a "new" or "different" alternate does not exempt participants from having to do them.

    *The Ping Pong Claus*
    If you fail to watch your assigned shows in time, to participate in the next season, you must watch Ping Pong Club. *Applicable, only once*

    One please, I'd get more due to how slim the pickings are next season, but I know it's going to be a shite isekai anyways since that's 60% of what's airing, and I can't stand more than one of those per season

    I think one of the reasons we have less participants is because ALG used to be kind of a community thing, but since overtime some regulars have stopped doing it, often you're stuck talking about a show nobody wants to watch all on your own instead of having fun trashing it with others. Maybe it's time to revamp the game a bit so that the few people that are playing, are all watching the same shitty show that they have to complete, so it feels more like a community thing.

    Maybe only have like three options total for the rolling or something? IDK

    I ended up getting Rusted Armors and Akebi's Sailor Uniform. One show I was interested in watching anyway and the other show is already getting panned on Crunchyroll given the early ratings.
