Can anyone clarify the rules for this contest, please?

Like what format is acceptable. Surely it can't be any sentense that is broken into three lines.

BTW, I know a little bit about the rules for Japanese haikus, i.e. 5-7-5, but I'm not sure how that translates to English haikus.

"Specifically, write some LOVE HAIKU, based on one of the following Crunchyroll titles" is what Sailorbee wrote so no confusion on weather or not it has to be a mixture of both.

She also wrote "Specifically, write some LOVE HAIKU" so I assume that's the main theme.

I'm not sure of the format either but I went with the traditional one of 5-7-5 just to be safe. O^O

For those who need help in understanding how to write a Haiku I'll try to explain. [But google it. That might explain it better.]

Generally you make the first two lines kinda explain a setting,emotion,thought, the theme, etc. Then you make the last line sorta a realization. Example

Crunchyroll forum
Words of deep explanation
Its so late at night

Like that. Now I'll explain the 5-7-5 format, for anyone who doesn't know it. Pretty much means the first line is five syllables, the second one is seven, and the third one is five again.
Syllables are basically what builds a word. The word "Crunchyroll" has 3 syllables. "Crun" "Chee" "Roll". That's it I guess. Google though! Ugh I hope I'm not wrong. =/ If I'm am I will be forced to live out the rest of my days as a Magikarp out of embarrassment.

Now splash Magikarp
Mocked by all who see you play
Soon you will all pay

Also this website has a deeper explanation. http://www.wikihow.com/Write-a-Haiku-Poem

"Haiku has been called an "unfinished" poem because each one requires the reader to finish it in his or her heart.". I just read that. MY HEART HAS BEEN TOUCHED! TT~TT

Utakoi: Palace Intrigue

Fireflies flicker
Our hearts embrace in secret
As the palace sleeps

Hmmmm... you really need a seasonal reference for a haiku. Let's give this some thought...

(for Chihayafuru~)

Stirring tender shoots
Red winds toss at careless leaves
She springs forth, alone.
