    The Post's Most Wanted - Licence Wish List

    We're back! But given that we've had some action over on the new forums I'm still starting this thread a new.

    I've taken this oportunity to introduce one of the biggest shakeups in the scoring since the idea was thought up. Instead of going from one to ten, scores now go from six to fifteen. This emphasises the fact that a title in rank 10 is much better than a title in the non-scoring rank 11. This new change should favour those titles which a lot of people like, rather than just one or two people love.


    One last request I have is for those of you who have changed your user name. Please either send me a PM or reply with both your old and new names, so I can update the records.


    POSTING A NEW LIST (Example)

    • Include a note stating that you are posting a new list.
    • List up to ten of your most wanted anime.
    • With every anime you list, include an Anime News Network ID number.
    • Either rank your anime from #1 to #10, or include a note stating your list is unranked.




    UPDATING YOUR LIST (Example)

    • Always post your updated list as a new reply. Never edit your list for any reason other than fixing typos.
    • Include a note stating that you are updating your previous list.
    • It's preferred if you quote your previous list. You may do this in any form you choose, but the easiest way is to hit the QUOTE button on your previous list.
    • Try to avoid quoting multiple old lists in one post. If necessary when quoting your list, delete all of the quote except your previous list.




    ANIME NEWS NETWORK NUMBERS

    • When posting any anime, remember to include the Anime News Network ID number

    • To find an ANN ID number for any anime, first find that anime at AnimeNewsNetwork.com's encyclopedia.
    • Once you have found the anime you want to list, make sure that it is unlicenced for TV or home video release in North America.
    • If it is eligible you can find the ID number in the address bar. It is the number at the end of the URL. .../anime.php?id=7490

    • When posting a new anime, remember to always double check that you have the ANN ID number right. I may not always catch typos.

    • Should an anime not have an entry on Anime News Network I can offer it a temporary ID number.
    • If you want a temporary number, find proof that the anime exists and submit it to the ANN Encyclopedia.
    • Post that proof to this thread and I will give it a temporary ID number.
    • Once a temporary title has a true ANN ID number you must use that one, and not the temporary one.




    ELIGIBILITY

    • Any anime that is currently licenced is ineligible.
    • Any anime that has been licenced in the past is ineligible.

    • Anime that has been licenced for TV broadcast is considered licenced.
    • Anime that has been licenced only for Online Streaming, but not for home video or TV broadcast, is not considered licenced.

    • Each individual series of an anime is considered a seperate title.




    HOW THIS LIST WORKS

    • Each time an anime appears on a list it scores points based on how it is ranked.

    • For a ranked list, points are scored from fifteen points (rank #1) to six point (rank #10).
    • Ranked lists with less than ten anime score as usual, with rank #1 scoring the usual fifteen points.

    • For an unranked list, 10.5 points are awarded for every title on the list.

    • At various points the lists will be collated to form a total score for each anime based on the total number of points it has been awarded.
    • At that time, any ineligible titles on individual lists will be discounted, and titles will move up in rank.

    • Once the scores have been collated, the top twenty-five will be posted.
    • Ties will be decided based on a countback of higher placed votes. Unranked votes are not considered in the countback.




    OTHER INFORMATION

    • The list will be updated periodically, usually once per month.

    • Whenever an anime on the list is licenced it will be announced with a list of people with the title on their list.
    • If you are flagged as having an ineligible title on your list, please change it as soon as possible.

    • Infrequently the master list will be swept for inactive lists with ineligible titles.
    • Should a list be inactive for twelve consecutive updates and if there is evidence that the user is inactive then they will be removed.

    • The information provided in the Most Wanted list will only be used to promote which anime is most wanted by the participants.
    • Should anyone want a copy of the list beyond the top twenty-five then they are free to request this via Private Message.
    • Any copies provided in this way will not include individual lists or scores.




    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Q. Why can I not edit my old list?
    A. Old lists aren't looked at retroactively. Once they are taken onto the master list they will only be looked at in rare circumstances.

    Q. What if I have changed my user name since my last list?
    A. When you next update your list, quote your old list. Also include a note that your user name has changed, and what it changed from.

    Q. I can't remember when I posted my last list, where can I find it?
    A. Old lists can be found in the old thread. If you want to know your old list and can't find it, send me a PM.

    Q. Can I list an anime that has been cut?
    A. No. It has been licenced so it's ineligible. It's a shame it was cut, but it's licenced.

    Q. Can I list an anime that I want to be rescued?
    A. No. It has been previously licenced so it's ineligible. This is a new licence list, not a licence rescue list.

    Q. Can I list the second half of a series that was never released?
    A. Only in some situations. If you can prove that it was never licenced then yes, but ask first. Otherwise no.

    Q. Can I list an anime that has been licenced in other English speaking territories, such as United Kingdom or Australia?
    A. Yes. This is a most wanted list for North America. Should somebody wish to start up a most wanted list for other territories they are free to do so.

    Q. I disagree with one of your decisions about eligibility! Can I protest this by keeping a title on my list?
    A. No you can't. Once a title is licenced it must be removed from your list immediately. Should somebody be suspected of using this list for a protest their list may be removed without warning.

    Q. I've spotted a mistake you have made, can I correct you?
    A. Yes you can. Either send it in a private message or post it in the thread.

    Q. I have a question that you haven't answered.
    A. Then ask it! Either by private message or in the thread.

    4. Hyouka (13817)

    8. Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! (6789)
    9. Nichijou - My Ordinary Life (12142)
    10. REC (6008)
    Even though this spot has been quiet for a while, finally several titles from my old list have been licensed and just recently, too, so I shall update this list (like tying wishes on a bamboo tree for the Japanese Tanabata festival) and hope.

    New list:
    1. Banner of the Stars III (OAV) (4899)
    2. Macross Frontier (8586)
    3. Amanchu! (17700)
    4. Kemono Friends (18799)
    5. Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! (6789)
    6. REC (6008)
    7. Astarotte's Toy [Astarotte no Omocha!] (12104)
    8. Witchcraft Works | Witch Craft Works TV (15708)
    9. Sky Girls (7816)
    10. Nagasarete Airantou (7303)

    Of these, I have high hopes that Amanchu! might be licensed by Nozomi since Nozomi did such a fine job with Aria (same mangaka and same chief director and very similar feel).

    I would also hope that Funimation might include Banner of the Stars III (since it's just a two-episode OVA) to its license of Banner of the Stars I & II, but there has been so little movement on that front since Funimation's announcement in 2013(!) of its license rescue of the first two series of Banner that the whole series feels lost in a box hidden in some attic.

    Well, fingers crossed!

    Two more great titles to remove from the list since I last updated. It is getting tougher to decide what to fill on the bottom. I've got a decent amount of most wanted titles, but some of what remains is exceptionally unlikely and/or otherwise not in the highest tier of wanted titles. I guess it's fitting that it coincides with Jun giving up on the thread. I do think there are cracks that still need to be filled in (and we can hope companies like Sentai, Discotek, and Right Stuf continue to fill them), but nice that most newly wanted titles get snatched up early by a video distributor.

    The master list is no longer being maintained, so at this point it's just for the fun of it if you want a dedicated place to hold your license wish list. With that being said, I can imagine that there are many people who now have to update their personal lists with Sentai's announcements of Higurashi and Legend of the Galactic Heroes, seeing as those were the #1 and #8 spots on the list respectively. Here's to hoping that's not all from this list that gets knocked off this year.

    I had to come in here and update just because of LoGH getting licensed. I never thought I'd see that happen. I also noticed I still had Free! on there as well. I have no idea what to replace them with at this point though.

    I do thank you very much for your dedicated efforts in this regard, and while I realize that maintaining this list is a lot of work, I do hope that someone else here steps up to take over (or perhaps we could organize some sort of team approach so as to decrease individual workload?) because I do find this list still relevant.

    Though most everything is licensed these days, the lists were nice to see what isn't. Would be cool if there was a master list of unlicensed titles.

    I always enjoyed seeing what was most anticipated here, but you are correct. It is not very relevant in the current market.

    Guys, I've decided to step back from updating the master list. It took too much time to keep the list updated.

    If someone wants to step forward and take over, feel free, but the Most Wanted list is no longer as relevant as it used to be.

    Explanation

    I was kind of lazy about updating this since a lot of my potential choices were getting licensed anyway. Well potential choices from the current season. However with Sketchbook announced & the fact I haven't removed Lob Lab yet means it's time for an update finally. So let's throw on Hanayamata and Yama no Susume because those come to mind the fastest.

    I was not expecting to finally scratch Sketchbook off my list at this point. Very happy to see. Let's replace it with more iyashikei goodness.
