AWC: Winter 2019 Seasonal Challenge
Winter 2019 Seasonal Challenge
- As we don't know which characters everyone will love and hate before the season even starts, a community vote will decide the character on the badge during the season!
- Include your character nomination in your challenge post! All challenge lists will be checked for their final vote on April 8, 2019.
- Update -
Badge designed by Kondor
- Watch 7 anime that are airing in the Winter 2019 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 21st 2019.
- 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).
- You can use anime from other challenges.
- You cannot use anime with the format “Music”.
- 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.
Generally, if an anime is listed as Winter 2019 on AniList, you can watch it for this challenge. Some shows from previous seasons will be finishing, while others will be continuing into Spring 2019. Please check below for rules about different anime. 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.
- Special Cases this Season:
Star ☆ Twinkle Precure - This show begins airing later than the rest, but is still a Winter 2019 anime. If you're watching it, you must complete at least 11 episodes.
Emiya-san Chi no Kyou no Gohan - The single and final episode that aired on January 1st, does not count towards the Winter 2019 Seasonal Challenge.
Tsurune: Kazemai Koukou Kyuudou-bu - The remaining episodes do not count towards the Winter 2019 Seasonal Challenge.
Not listed? - If you think the show you are watching should be listed as a special case, please feel free to ask the AWC staff!
- Submissions will close on April 21st 2019 at 23:59 PST
- This is two weeks after the season ends to allow for late shows, longer shows, subtitle releases and simuldubs.
