AWC




Winter 2020 Seasonal Challenge


  • The badge will feature a character from the community’s favourite Winter 2020 anime.
  • Include a link to your favourite anime of the season in your challenge post! All entries will be checked for their final vote on April 6th, 2020.

  • Watch 7 anime that are airing in the Winter 2020 season.
  • All anime must be airing or have aired in the current season.
  • You can watch the episodes at any time during the season, as long as it is before April 19th 2020.
  • If you drop a show, you must replace it with another.
  • You can use an anime you have previously started, as long as it is still airing this season (see below for details about completing anime).
  • You can use anime from other challenges.
  • You cannot use anime with the format “Music”.
  • You cannot use anime with the genre “Hentai”.
  • You cannot use speed watching to complete this challenge.

    Speed watching is watching an anime at 2x speed / 3x speed, etc. This goes against the spirit of AWC challenges.

Completing Anime

Generally, if an anime is listed as Winter 2020 on AniList, you can watch it for this challenge. Some shows from previous seasons will be finishing this season, while others will be continuing into Spring 2020. Please check below for rules about different anime. The individual rules only apply if you are watching each show, you do not need to watch any particular anime listed. You must make a note if you are watching an ongoing dub, so that we can take this into account when reviewing your challenge.

  • Regular - shows with 1 cour or less, movies and specials: You must have completed all episodes.
  • Leftovers - shows with 2 cours or more that finish this season: You must have completed all episodes.
  • Continuing - shows that continue after this season: You must be up-to-date at the time of your submission.
  • Special Cases - some anime may not fit the criteria because they may be starting later, or have irregular release schedules. Any special cases for this season are listed below.
  • What is a cour?

    A cour is a three-month portion of anime that airs over the course of a season, usually comprising of 10 to 14 weekly episodes.
