The Salty Anime Challenge

It’s been two weeks since my last post, largely due to studying and finals. However, that’s all over (for this semester) now I’m able to focus back on blogging. Anyway, looking around the anime blogger sphere for some ideas to better my blog I stumbled onto Fueled by Smiling. After exploring the site I’ve decided to do more anime challenges and create some lists. So I going to try the Salty Anime Challenge. A couple of years ago I completed the 30 Day anime challenge. Unlike the 30 day anime challenge, the “salty” challenge focuses what you don’t like about anime. I think this challenge maybe be difficult for me, but we’ll see. I’ll start tomorrow.

Day 1: Least favorite anime
Day 2: A popular and/or hyped anime that you didn’t care for
Day 3: Anime with an over ‘8’ rating on MAL that you disliked
Day 4: The first anime that you hated and/or dropped
Day 5: What is something that you would change in your least favorite anime that would make you like it?

Day 6: A show that you wanted to like (due to the synopsis) but couldn’t
Day 7: A character that ruined (or almost ruined) a show for you
Day 8: Least favorite genre(s)
Day 9: Least favorite anime trope(s)
Day 10: What is something that you dislike about a show you love?

Day 11: Least favorite art style or art technique
Day 12: Least favorite male/female/sidekick character
Day 13: A sad anime that made you feel nothing
Day 14: An anime that shouldn’t have been as long as it was
Day 15: In terms of story, characters, animation, voice acting, etc… what is something that you find yourself always avoiding. (Example, an anime with bad animation will make you turn away even if it may have rave reviews. Or you’ll stay away from short animes, because 2-7mins isn’t enough time to develop anything)

Day 16: Least favorite OP or ED
Day 17: An anime that you have no desire to watch, even though it’s popular
Day 18: An unpopular anime that deserves being unpopular
Day 19: Least favorite -dere character
Day 20: What is an anime argument that you absolutely hate hearing?

Day 21: An anime that you thought you’d hate (due to genre/tropes), but actually love
Day 22: An anime that everyone hates and/or has a low score, but you love
Day 23: What a weird day to end this on, but that’s what salty challenges do. They end on a weird number. So, how did you find this challenge and what is one last thing that you’d like to be salty about?

Will you give it a try? Meanwhile, check out, Fueled by Smiling and Anime Madhouse’s challenges.
