My Anime List
2018 Anime Watching Challenge.

>>FOR ALL INFO, PLEASE VISIT HERE<<

 

To be honest with you all, I kinda lost track of My Anime List, but luckily I'm trying to revive my profile there.
Which means, I stumbled across this challenge and I was eager to participate. :D 
I'll be updating my progress over here including reviews etc.

Because I still qualify myself as a Newbie and didn't want to make the challenge too hard to begin with, as I could see myself being completely dissapointed for failing to accomplish the challenge, I chose the beginner's level.

Maybe you can join next year? You don't have to participate for a certain amount of time, just as long as it's in the current year and a minimum of 20 anime. tehe1

I vaguely heard about The Boy and the Beast, but I'm not sure if those titles would cross of some of the challenges.. Currently watching the third season of Free! Dive into the Future.. had no idea it was here, you still watching/interested @Robert. ??

I'm not completely up to date with SnK either.. watched a few eps of the third season but I might just wait a bit longer so I can just binge. tehe1 

But let me check out those titles to see if they fit in for any of the challenges I embarked. lol1

So I was thinking it was time to start.

@Kali weirdly I couldn't find the titles you recommended back on MAL, which is weird and so vague because even if you search with the English title you should be able to find the according Anime with its Japanese title. So I'm at a loss. :( 

 

I'm kicking off with;

challenge 16:
Watch a completed anime with a score of or above 8.00

I looked on MAL and searched through their top rankings and I came across this;

3dc1a0262814fc1ac0e9f5e62b6bed289c463045_hq.gif

Sora yori mo Tooi Basho

Synopsis

Filled with an overwhelming sense of wonder for the world around her, Mari Tamaki has always dreamt of what lies beyond the reaches of the universe. However, despite harboring such large aspirations on the inside, her fear of the unknown and anxiety over her own possible limitations have always held her back from chasing them. But now, in her second year of high school, Mari is more determined than ever to not let any more of her youth go to waste. Still, her fear continues to prevent her from taking that ambitious step forward—that is, until she has a chance encounter with a girl who has grand dreams of her own.

Spurred by her mother's disappearance, Shirase Kobuchizawa has been working hard to fund her trip to Antarctica. Despite facing doubt and ridicule from virtually everyone, Shirase is determined to embark on this expedition to search for her mother in a place further than the universe itself. Inspired by Shirase's resolve, Mari jumps at the chance to join her. Soon, their efforts attract the attention of the bubbly Hinata Miyake, who is eager to stand out, and Yuzuki Shiraishi, a polite girl from a high class background. Together, they set sail toward the frozen south.

Sora yori mo Tooi Basho follows the captivating journey of four spirited girls, all in search of something great.

Episodes: 13
Status: Finished Airing
Aired: Jan 2, 2018 to Mar 27, 2018

F8090BB9E8396DECE253792E4B19A98C8458CE8F

 

I did a little math and if I want to be able to accomplish this challenge I will need to watch 5 Anime each month to stay on track.
So I'm not sure yet if I'll be posting weekly updates, or sporadically after finishing each individual Anime.. 

Either way, I'm really looking forward to it, and if you guys would like me to pick a specific challenge next, let me know! All the challenges are listed in the OP.

Okay, this anime was so beautiful! I totally get why it has an above 8 rating on MAL.
I got so attached to all the characters. It started off so light, and as a couple of cute girls embarking an adventure. But at the final couple of episodes they had me sobbing my eyeballs out. <3

The art is sublime, great soundtrack and amazing scenery. I truly felt like I went on this trip with them. 
To conclusion, it's a beautiful, heart-warming story with a joke here and there and about girls who go on an adventure and discover the true meaning of friendship.

This story will stay on my mind for a long time to come. <3

And I do hope they'll make another journey some time in the future.
