I've observed an intriguing phenomenon regarding the Anime Convert achievement. I've noticed that not every series triggers the flag upon completion of said series. A couple nights ago, I finished watching HaNaYaMaTa, and I didn't get the Anime Convert achievement. But the next day, I finished Nanana's Buried Treasure, and did get it. And just now, I finished Brynhildr in the Darkness and got it again. HaNaYaMaTa wasn't the first series to fail to trigger the achievement flag for me upon its completion. So I'm wondering if it's some sort of odd random fluke, or if certain titles are exempt from this achievement. It's pretty much academic to me either way, but I'm curious.

An entire series must be watched only from a web browser and all the episodes must have been watched within the same calendar month.

Well, the system probably has bugs in it in any case, plus, you can re-watch a series after resetting your history and still get another achievement for the same one. You might not even have to reset it first, I'm not entirely sure... Ultimately it's pointless to worry about anyway, because every year on the first of January all the achievements for the past year, even ones you just got on December 31st, are removed/reset to nothing, so you don't get to keep them forever, like you do for items.

Wasn't worried, really. As I said, it was a matter of curiosity. Makes no real difference to me either way, but I still appreciate the answer.
