Prime example Ikkitousen and Lucky Star HAVE NOT BEEN LICENCED BY ANYBODY FOR RELEASE IN THE UK!!!!!


Lucky Star collection is being released by Beez in June (I think)

Ikki Tousen has been available for years, under the more store-shelf friendly (and Tokyopop licenced) title, "Battle Vixens". It does still say Ikki Tousen on the box though.

If you mean for streaming? There's no real outlet for legal streaming anime in the UK other than Crunchyroll. Meaning CR has no competition for licences - but remember, the UK DVD distributers may already have streaming rights, I know that Beez does for Haruhi for instance - it's why CR got their wrists firmly slapped when they allowed Haruhi to stream to the UK initially. Also the licences don't always come from Japan. A lot of the CR licences for things US only comes from US distributors - they only have the US rights, so can only offer those rights.



But back on topic, can we get answers please? Is this competition open to non-US residents? If we can get any badges from any of the shows, then can we definitely get all 20 without having to watch the unavailable titles?


if you can view any of the shows listed you are eligible to enter. you can get any of the 20 badges from any one of the shows.

What they failed to make clear is:
IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU CAN NOT WATCH ALL THE SHOWS
The badges are not tied to any particular show, they're all random regardless of what show you're watching. As long as you have access to at least one of the Animes in the competition's list then you can still collect badges from shows you don't hav access to. In fact, you can collect all 20 badges by simply watching a single episode again and again.

Quite messy, since there is no way to sort your inventory other than dumb luck.

Just my 2-cents in helping to try and figure out the mechanics of this contest... I've gotten 7 so far (one way to kill time on a day off...). There are apparently 20 different badges, each depicting a character from one of the ten shows listed, with two badges/characters for each show. You get a badge for watching an episode of apparently any of those 10 shows. So long as at least one of the shows is available in your area, it seems you should be able to accumulate badges. The badge you receive may not correspond at all to the show whose episode you just watched-- seems to be random. As previously mentioned, you can get any badge from any show. Since it's random, you can get duplicate badges (I've 6 unique badges, 1 duplicate so far). If it's indeed completely random, you'll likely need to watch well over 20 episodes to actually accumulate all 20 unique badges. Getting that last 20th badge could well be very difficult! Hopefully the algorithm for awarding badges will take this into account, and not actually be completely random. But, who knows? Finally, an odd thing: you might need to have previously Favorite'd the show in order to get badges. I've gotten badges for episodes from Favorite'd shows, but not for one episode of a show not actually on my Favorites list.

Hmm.... I guess I'll give it a shot. I was planning on watching most of the shows anyway. I don't expect to win or anything though. Good luck to everyone participating!
