    Are you in an anime or manga slump? Or ever wanted to recommend an anime or manga to someone that they might have overlooked? Join our annual Secret Santa event to take part in the fun!

    The goal of Secret Santa is to make someone watch and review something that you love, or, you could be a bit evil and make them watch something terrible! But be careful, you might just get a lump of coal in your stocking in return ;)


    How to sign up

    To participate in Secret Santa, reply to this thread with the following template filled in by November 18th:

    Anime-Planet username:
    Link to your anime list:
    Anime, manga, or both is ok?
    Maximum episode (anime) and/or volume (manga) limits:
    Tags you don't want:
    Other:


    Example:
    Anime-Planet username: NorthPole
    Link to your anime list: NorthPole | Anime-Planet
    Maximum episode (anime) and/or volume (manga) limits: 24-26 (anime), 10 vols (manga)
    Anime, manga, or both is ok? Both are fine.
    Tags you don't want: Not a fan of horror! Too scary for santa!
    Other: Anything with a santa in it I'd love to see! Nothing on my won't watch list please.


    Making your Secret Santa recommendations

    • NorthPole will send you your Secret Santa buddy through a forum PM, on November 19th. The choice is random.

    • You'll then need to choose 3 anime or manga for the person (depending on their requests), and reply back to the NorthPole PM with your choices. Do not PM your recipient! It will spoil the fun!

    • Do not recommend titles that are:
    • Ongoing
    • Music videos
    • Untranslated/incomplete


    Getting your Secret Santa recommendations

    • You'll receive your recommendations on November 26th.

    • If for some reason you can't watch or read any of the titles you were given, you can request a new batch once.

    • Choose at least one of the titles to watch or read, and add a review for it. Or, do them all!

    • Though it's not required, everyone is encouraged to discuss your picks and post links to your reviews here in the Secret Santa thread, any time (no minimum date). It helps Santas feel excited about participating to see discussions about your picks!

    • Reviews are due by the week of December 24th. Please add a note at the bottom of the review that it's for Secret Santa 2019.


    Secret Santa pairs will be announced here in the thread on December 25!


    Happy holidays and happy anime watching!

    er... question... suppose we get someone like this to recommend things to, and we, the Santa, have never read a manga in our life. No hard feelings if I just pick random stuff I've never read, right? :sweat:

    Go wild you bastard. Lucky for you ZK hasn't read that many manga's so you might be able to score something half decent to make him read (though it might be a good idea to read some chapters of it to get a taste out of it). Or you can trap him with reading the manga to an anime he rated on the positive side.

    This looks interesting. I would like to try this:

    Link to your anime list: https://www.anime-planet.com/users/Sabure/anime
    Anime, manga, or both is ok? Anime only
    Maximum episode limits: 13
    Tags you don't want: Horror, BL, Yaoi, Shounen-ai, Thriller
    Other: Don't recommend anything that I watched before or what's on my Won't Watch or Dropped lists. You can take titles from my Stalled list, though I would advise against that since I might be using some of the titles there for the Anime Bingo Challenge I'm currently playing.

    Tags you don't want: Slice of Life
    Other: I prefer to watch in English, but if you consider a sub only anime to be essential, I will give it a chance. I would also prefer to watch an anime that was released in the past 5 years, but if there is an absolute gem, a classic that my archive is missing, then I will give that a chance too.

    I respect your bravery. Words like this could be how the all 600 or whatever episodes of Cardfight Vanguard get dumped on you. Sure it starts out okay, but hoo boy does that go downhill.

    The episode limit you are willing to watch: 24 or 26 is the maximum I am willing to watch.
    Would prefer manga or anime or don't mind either: Anime, I already have way too many manga that I'm reading at the moment
    If there is a particular genre you really aren't interested in: I tend to watch everything, but since this is my first time here. I am wary of what people can give so no little sister anime please. Also no ecchi/fanservice anime.
    Other: I would like to get a variety of genres to choose from.

    I've always set no limit, and yet I've never had anyone dump anything more than 2-cour on me. I'm pretty sure...? This will probably be the year i'll get three options of 100+ though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
