Welcome to the official 2022 Animation Challenge.
Goal: To watch as many animated films as possible!
The challenge runs from 1-30 November, midnight to midnight, your local time.
- A feature film (at least 40 minutes) counts as one point.
- 80 minutes of short films or miniseries/TV episodes counts as one point.
- Films/episodes must be watched one at a time, at single speed (not sped up), and in their entirety.
- Rewatches are allowed and good for the soul, but you can only count any film/episode once in the challenge
- Post the years of your watches.
- Do not edit posts to add new watches, just create a new post
- Not a rule but a request: When you post what you have watched, please include your reaction or at least a rating so that other people can learn about movies they might not know about. Also, the challenge is more fun and interesting when discussion is ample.
- There's no bonus, but screenshots are encouraged to show up how gorgeous animated movies can be.
