Hello everyone, this year I decided to re-create MAL’s 2016 Anime Watching Challenge. This challenge is for fun and would allow you to expand your watch list. Since this is the first time hosting this challenge on MDL, I would make it a bit easier and combine dramas and movies. Maybe if we see more participation and many people are able to achieve the extreme level, we would separate it to drama only and movie only challenge.
(Disclaimer: This challenge was first introduced on MAL by SheyCroix, I’m just trying to recreate it to suit drama/movie fans. I do not intend to take someone else’s credit and already got permission from MAL. Moreover, if you are a fan of Anime or Manga make sure to check out their 2017 Challenge.)
This challenge starts on January 1, 2017, until December 31, 2017.
You have to pick the difficulty lever: Super Easy: 10 items, Easy: 20 items, Medium: 30, Hard: 40, or Extremely Hard: 50. You may change the difficulty level later.
You can’t use the same drama/movie multiple time. Each Drama/movie can only be used once in this challenge.
You can't include dramas/movies you watched previously. All dramas/movies must be watched during the challenge period.
