I've been lurking Crunchyroll for quite some time. I visit almost every day and read the news, but I only just decided to make an account here so I don't really know much about it...

Anyway, I've been seeing profiles with lots of anime badges (I see a lot of Hoshizora, Shugo Chara, and Saki badges), and I want to know how I can start collecting them. So far I only have the Haruhi badge because I passed the quiz.


I've already Googled this before making this thread to see if there were any answers, but none really satisfied me (if someone can bring one to my attention, possibly, that would be great, but here is my main question:

Can anime badge items only be earned during CR promotions or contests?

For example, can I get the Erika badge just from watching episodes of Fortune Arterial now? I'm unsure this how this badge collecting works.


Thanks very much everyone, sorry if this sounds n00b-ish.

Yeah, that's the only time. Usually mid-way into simulcast CR will have an announcement like "Watch episodes of (insert anime here) and earn a badge! Collect all 5 (or 6 or however many) and like us on Facebook before blah-blah date and be entered for your chance to win a 3 month free premium membership!!" or a poster or something like that. It's not always a simulcasted show but, you get the point.

Then during the contest, each time you watch an episode, you get a badge. Once the contest is over, you can still keep the badges. It decorates your profile at least.

Thanks for the information; that was helpful.


EDIT: Just thought of something else...These opportunities to get badges are usually posted in the news section? It doesn't seem that there are any running currently.

Currently, no, there are no contests like that running. It will be under "Site News" when it's announced however.
