Something where more than 1 or 3 people get a prize. Even if it's some dumb virtual prize, it's more fun if you at least have a decent chance of getting something, instead of your work going into a black hole with no returns. I kind of stopped bothering doing contests because really, there's not much incentive unless your work's on a professional level.

Public voting would be fun too. Like, if all the entries were collected into one place to see them all. Because it gets tedious to sift through 50 or so pages to look at them, and we don't exactly know what the judges are going for, or if it's arbitrary.


That's a great idea, I like the idea of public voting. Most of the contests we've had so far is judged by judges so I think anime fans should be able to judge the works of anime fans too!

And the prizes, I'd say most of the prizes are pretty cool but the chances of getting it are pretty slim. Most often artists with experience win and I don't think that's wrong. They probably put in effort too so yeah. That's the point of a contest, there'll always be someone better than you. But I think that other artists that put in effort should be acknowledged too, even if it's some kinda teeny prize XD I've seen some creative entries that didn't win because of the drawing, but I genuinely thought their ideas were cool. Anyways, I hope I wasn't blunt or anything ^__^"

P.S.: I love your profile pic

I like all the contests so far, there's really a great variety of things [= Maybe something other than drawing sometimes would be cool, as I (along with what seems like others) have absolutely no artistic ability ^6^
Also, as a request...If you had time could you please make a Natsume Yujinchou contest? Its my absolute favorite anime and it's really hard finding things outside of Japan for it. Plus it'd be fun to see other fans of the show on here [=

Please make a BTOOOM contest if possible, maybe since people are wanting one less artistically driven, maybe blue prints for a new kind of BIM? written and or drawn. personally i can draw but i can get where people who can't or maybe can't upload what they do draw would want a different kind of contest. Thanks for all the contests so far and i cant wait to enter more!

come one who doesn't like a good scavenger hunt or a mind bending riddle that can only be solved in your sleep? wouldn't it just be awesome to have a riddle involved with Galaxy Express 999...its so slow and there are so many episodes.

I hate thoughs they both hurt my brain lol


Did you already use up the available thought capacity of your brain? i cant tell if you were trying to say thoughts hurt your brain or that that those hurt it.


the problem is I think so hard that I end up over thinking it and get a headache from it lol hence they hurt my brain

well i agree with: SoTa_PoP

the only thing is i would say like a quess about more then 1 anime. and also on the background of the creators
we always look towards anime the series but never really know who made them and why (exept for the money part ofcourse)
and how they came to the idea. everyone knows those kind of things about anime like narutu ore bleach ore sword art online

but how about old clasics like
- black cat
- get backers
- hellsing
- code geass
- full metal panic
- Karin

ore even deathnote that was 1 of the most populair tho in old times

ore more like a history quess about what anime was first and then more background questions. because yea who knows what year deathnote came out ore what the first anime was ever to be send out on TV Tokyo so yea

maybe that is a idea

by the way i got a amazing idea

why not a sound question ?

you hear just 10 seconds of a anime serie and you have to guess what anime it is and what episode
you can make it really heard that way a treu fan of a serie would proably reconize it if you try hard enough
and yea only condision is that you post a list on what possible anime it could be
like a list like this:

- black cat
-btooom
- blood
- full metal alchemist brotherhood
- full metal alchemist
- full metal panic
- code geass
- kiba
- Gosick
- black lagoon
- 11 eys
- space brothers
- total ecplise
- bleach
- vampire knight
- get backers
etc

with that way they have atleast a change of finding it because its 1 out of 20 anime series on the list. and you get people to also to watch new types of anime that they wouldnt touch before. and you dont have to be a gread writer, singer, drawer ore even creative ore smart person to get this one its exctreemly hard but it could be fun you have 1 week to find out what it is who ever gets it first wins

and then later you post what episode and anime it was and where that part was like this

Vampire Knight
episode 4
12:40 till 12:50

and yea if you dont win you just add up that price and get the next sound so yea it could be possible to get the price when its alot better because it are 3 rounds already so yea

maybe that is a good idea ?

writing contest - write alternative plot, or ending to a certain anime serie the contest is about

cosplay contest - try to cosplay as one of the characters in anime serie, the contest is about

picture contest - take a photo of object that is either cute, kawaii, or amazing. No real-life pictures! Just objects, buldings etc.

maybe you need to see a nutritionist if "thinking" is to much for you. i am worried you are not getting all of your proper vitamins and minerals in your diet.

I personally dislike artistic contests since regardless of ability levels, not everyone can post their art online for various reasons. (lack of access to a scanner/digital camera as an example).



You should have access to some sort of camera... your cellphone camera? If you don't have a smartphone, most cellphones can still send pictures to email addresses, just be sure your picture is properly lighted if the camera is of low resolution and has no flash. I think someone mentioned this before, but Christmas is coming up, it'd be a good and inexpensive thing to ask for a new digital camera, even the cheaper ones today have good resolutions. You can also take your drawing to be scanned at an office supply store, or to a photo/scanner kiosks in some stores.

I personally love the drawing/artistic contests because we all watch anime and the main component of anime is beautiful art. This is why I do not mind that there are more drawing themed contests. For those that do not have any drawing capabilities I do agree that writing/poem contest would be nice. I also liked the caption contest that was previously done. Someone also mentioned earlier that a character bento/cooking contest would be a good idea, and I think that would be great fun..but also take a lot of preparation so the deadline would need to be a good amount of time.

Either way, I think you've done a good job on the contests so far, and my favorite one was the naruto birthday card contest, and more birthday card contest would be great as well.

you should try and see if you can get into clinical trials for your situation. i was in trials for Telcagepant for my migraines since triptans don't agree with go well with cardiovascular issues. http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/search/term=Migraine this is a list a trials that might help....if all goes well you will be able to think more and enjoy life with out limits.

Hum I like what CR is doing and the show you mention are some of the best ones!


We can collate images from our shows and make some videos, and write about them but to draw requires a little to much expertise and it takes time to develop . Therefore other abilities could also be a must, but if some one can Draw as a Pro - or at least not so bad enought to make us feel bad! . Well here it is your arena!

I suggest to consider type/categories of expressions to participate and based on them also grant badges and even more! is possible to be eligible to free - premium access (depending on participation and access history).
