I recently (over the last 2 days) binge watched Natsume Yujin-cho. Despite finishing the series i never got the Anime convert achievement. It really doesn't matter in the long run, but is there anyway to get them for it?

I tested with Natsume Yujin-cho Shi and i did get it from that one and got it (after watching the promotion video that i didn't watch the first time around)

If there's anyway to get that given I'd be appreciative. If there's not, oh well.

Are you watching on the website, or through one of the apps? Achievements don't seem to be connected to app activity.

Well, there is a convoluted way to get it, but it involves being a little savvy about using the element editor in your browser (works for me in chrome) and the ironic thing is that it is just a side effect of an "unofficial" way to reset your watch history on a show (but only the web player history).

So you can get an ice cream cone any time you want to, but all the episodes of the show you pick to use it on will appear as unwatched on the show page and/or your queue afterwards, and on top of that, your history page will show them as having been watched again.

It actually feels like an unfulfilled victory, so I only ever actually use this if I'm going to rewatch a series and want to keep track of where I left off; I don't use it for the purposes of getting the achievement, especially since those are reset (and lost) every January anyway.

Read this thread from where this link takes you to the end for the details.

Aw man, I watch Crunchy exclusively through the apps. I'm missing out.

What happens if you're watching your anime from an ipad? I finished watching Witch Clock Works via my ipad and the little ice cream symbol didn't come up even though in my history all the episode length bars are orange. I made sure to go to the CR website and click the "Watch Now" button for every episode and then it would play via the Crunchyroll app on my iPad.

The achievement badges are kind of glitchy. Users are being rewarded achievements when they're not suppose to or are not receiving any when they should be. These are all issues that our engineers are aware of and have a ticket out to fix.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
