Hey everyone!

I'm Contest-Hime and I'm pretty new here at Crunchyroll.

I've been brought on board to help liven up the forums by running Community Contests! I'll be doing my best to make sure they're engaging for all and have awesome prizes!

Hidden away in my CONTEST filled sleeves are all sorts of ideas on how to engage YOU GUYS to give away ~awesome~ stuff!!

That said... not everyone is perfect!
Please let me know what kinds of contests you want and what would be neat as a prize!


Enjoy my theme song!

Got this idea from a visual novel game that I was playing actually, but maybe u can make some kind of online anime-related (multiple-choice) timed quiz game that allows participants to enter only once with their username here.

Winners would get... free premium memberships, maybe a DVD box set of a popular anime or possibly other popular anime merchandise.

Timed quiz game? That's a great idea! We'd have to figure out how to implement this, but it's an excellent suggestion! And don't worry about the prizes! I'm sure no one will mind if a couple of things go missing in the office!

Fanfiction, eh? That's definitely something we could do as well. I know there are ton of people here who like writing fics about their favorite anime characters and are just as engaging as if it were canon in the story! We definitely want to highlight the different kinds of talents that everyone possesses here, so having the chance to showcase that will turn up in some way or another!

Thanks for the suggestion!

- 20 trivia question contests (live rounds) (General trivia with subjects like science/history/geography/maths and also anime trivia categories) Fastest answerer wins. The person with the most correct answers at the end of the trivia is the winner.
- Fan art contests
- comic strip contests...
- crossword contests
- Riddles contest (original riddles, not ones widely known)
- You post an object from an anime episode available on CR, then ask us which anime that object is from.



As for prizes, I don't mind what the prize is, because I just love brainteasers contests in general. And I enjoy competitions.

20 Trivia Question Contest
I like this! This is almost similar to suikojay's suggestion of timed quizzes for anime-related questions in a way, only much broader! I've got an idea on how to implement this but it will take some time to work on since I've got to poke and prod an engineer with something sharp to make it happen!

Fan Art Contests, Comic Strip Contests
Yes, yes! I'm really excited to see the amazing things people will draw when we unveil contests that concern drawing! So this is definitely something in the works! What are your thoughts about what specifically a comic strip contest should be about? Just the best/funniest panel? Or this would be similar to page in a manga?

Crossword Contests
Actually, I believe someone mentioned this to me while we were thinking of some contests I could kick off with and surprisingly enough, a crossword puzzle was tossed into the suggestion box! It's interesting to know that this came up again! This would be something fun, perhaps using anime as the basis of it?

Riddles Contest
Oh ho! I think I might have to reach out to the community for these (perhaps anime related again)! We can award the user who's riddle we use and the randomly selected user who has the right answer with something each!

Object Game
*nods* This has also come up during my brainstorming session with the moderators (they are so helpful, by the way ).

Prizes
It's great to know that there are some users who just prefer the fun side of things versus always getting something tangible! Don't worry, we're trying to cook up rewards to hopefully satisfy everyone!

My gosh, I'm so perpetually excited that I'm using exclamation marks on every sentence! I can't help it with all these wonderful ideas that people are giving me! Keep them coming!



P.S.: As a side note, I'd also like to think of things to do for the Drama side of the site! I know we are all about Anime, but Drama is important too! Please give me all your ideas for this as well!!

Lol, I hope the engineer's skin is made out of metal

I think the best/funniest panel would be great, as not a lot of people can draw manga-like stuff lol (or have access to manga drawing softwares).

In regards to artistic contests, I think it would be a good idea if you give us a theme, for example 1 random word, and the best artwork is the one the judges think fits that theme the best...

Yeah, using anime would be great. You know from something simple like, "Brown hair, plays karuta, female" Answer: Chihaya... to something a bit more subtle like, "Human battle support system" Answer: Chamber.

I hope not! Otherwise the poking and prodding won't get any ideas across!

So sharp things are a must! *nods solemnly*

I see! I'll think on how to do this a bit more!

I think this will work, gotta brainstorm on how we'll present this! Thank you again!

I liked a lot of the ideas up here.

My ideas:
-Writing [I liked the fanfiction idea, but what if there was a contest for people's original stories? Whether it be manga, comics, short stories, poems, song lyrics (original or a rewrite of a preexisting song), or an excerpt from their novel?]
-Singing (Like asking someone to sing their favorite opening or ending theme song and everyone votes on whose they liked the most, or the judges decide who wins?)
-Music, in general (Covering a song using an instrument of their choice, or composing.)
-AMV/Anime music videos

Thanks for your ideas! Let me just take the opportunity to address some of the ideas that you mentioned!

I'm totally on board with original stories! Original manga, original comic, original songs--original everything! But that's just the thing, they have to be original! So rewrites of preexisting things isn't considered exactly what we'd call original (however, people could argue what the term "original" means )

I know I mentioned that fanfiction as a possibility in the future, but everything is still under consideration at this point in time. I'm going to have to pow wow with the moderators and staff to see what we can or can't do!

But! There are some definite no-nos we cannot do such as anime music videos. There are some copyright issues with the companies who own both the source content and the music that may be used in it, so that's definitely out of the question unfortunately! Sorry!

OTL I apologize for the rewrite part under original! I went back and added that in without really thinking it through.
It's alright on the AMV part.
