Anime Specialist Challenge


Suggestions are welcome. 

You’re not a newbie anymore.  You’ve started branching out into different genres, testing out what you like.  At the same time, you’ve started to solidify your tastes in anime.  At this point, you’ve been disappointed a couple times, but you kept moving forward.  You’ve been around long enough to have a sense of “good” and “bad” anime.  You’ve got that knowing smile, ready to hold your own in anime discussions.

Welcome Anime Specialists!  By the time you’ve completed 50 anime series, you’re ready to head into deeper waters.  Through this challenge, we hope you can show off a little bit and help us get to know you better.  When you complete the challenge, tag @akkoanime and we’ll award you with the Anime Specialist Badge for you to use on your site (your choice of boy or girl.) (ZENKO is still in the process of making the badges)



1) It’s time to strut your stuff and show the full range of the series you’ve seen!  This challenge requires forethought, planning, and, of course, tough decisions.  

2) When completing the Anime Specialist Challenge, you cannot use the same anime series more than once.  

3) Characters, plots, etc that span more than one series count as coming from 1 series.  You can’t use that series again.  For example, If you pick “Goku,” you can’t answer another question using Dragonball, Dragonball Z, Dragonball GT, etc.  

4) When a question asks what is the “Best,” you have to explain your criteria for determining what the best is.  For example, when you answer best villain, is the villain “Best” because he accomplished his goal?  Persevered the most?   Had a high body count? Literally kicked puppies?

Ready?  Set?  GO!
