    ...From the people who brought you "The HTF DVD Challenge 2k3"
    The HTF ANIME Challenge 2k4!

    Last year a number of people watched their entire DVD collection from A to Z... this year I want people to be thinking less in terms of A to Z and more in terms of Ah! My Goddess to X:1999!

    1. The object of the challenge is to watch EVERY SINGLE ANIME TITLE and EXTRAs [if applicable] in your collection.
    3. Commentaries are optional (but encouraged).
    5. The CHALLENGE shall begin at 12:01am on January the 1st, 2004 and end at 11:59 on December the 31st, 2004.
    6. This is to track both theatrical and television series.

    It's going to be harder for the seasoned Otaku with a DVD collection comprised mainly of anime than a casual viewer. I encourage even people with only a handful of titles to still participate though!... who's in? [​IMG]

    Watched so far...
    The Twelve Kingdoms v.1
    The Vision of Escaflowne v.1
    The Renewal of Neon Genesis Evangelion v.1 REGION 2

    Rob, it's more like from AD Police: To Protect And Serve to Zone of Enders Dolores i Vol. #6: Last Things Last. [​IMG]

    Sure, I'll jump in the challenge also! Sounds like it will be a load of fun.

    Also, be sure to say if you want to recommend something you watched on my HTF Anime Recommendations List. [​IMG]

    First up: Animatrix!

    I'm in, although it's not much of a challenge. I think I have maybe 20 - 30 titles at the most.

    There are simply not enough hours in a year to begin thinking about this.

    I'll be lucky if I have time to watch all the anime I haven't watched from LAST year.

    Jeff, you are one of the 3 people that popped into my mind as "there's no way they could watch all their stuff in 1 year". (The other two are Chris Beverage and Kong Chang)

    Hey, this challenge is the perfect thing I need.

    Just last week, I decided to fully explore Anime. My collection basically consists of 10 anime movies that everyone has seen....but now I just updated my Netflix Queue and ordered a bunch of volumes.

    So this coincides and its just perfect.

    Hopefully, rentals count towards the challenge as they are not in *my* collection or anything.

    My list : Updated January 3rd, 2004

    Blood: The Last Vampire [​IMG] [​IMG] 01/01/2004
    Samurai X : Trust and Betrayal Director's Cut [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] 01/02/2004
    Cowboy Bebop Session 1-5 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] 01/03/2004

    I'll join this =) I only have about 50 anime DVDs or so in my collection though but I bought the majority of those within the past year. Sounds fun, the only challenge would be getting through Slayers Try again when I just watched it for the third time recently. Save it for last I guess =)

    Today watched Samurai X : Trust and Betrayal Director's Cut [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] out of [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Slow at times, but the payoff and setting is pretty solid.

    Next up are : Cowboy Bebop Volume 1 and Berserk Volume 1 : War Cry
