Hey everyone! It’s been 278 years since my last attempt to do one of these challenges, and FueledbySmiling recently came up with one that had an amazing concept – The Salty Anime Challenge. Like many other challenges, this one asks you to write about something anime related once a day for 30 days, but this challenge focuses specifically on the negative side of the anime world. The side that is a perpetual salt factory. Either a little salty or ‘You should regularly check your blood pressure’ salty. I realize I’m a little late to the party, but better late than never! Let the salt commence!
Day 1: Least favourite 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 favourite 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 favourite genre(s)
Day 9: Least favourite anime trope(s)
Day 10: What is something that you dislike about a show you love?
Day 11: Least favourite art style or art technique
Day 12: Least favourite 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 favourite 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 favourite -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?
