We can’t believe this is our 10th year! Thanks so much to everyone who has participated over the years. Whether you’re a veteran or participating for the first time, we’re glad you’re joining the holiday fun for 2018!

The idea of this project is for everyone who participates to be reviewing a show they might not have normally watched or may have overlooked. Everyone will get someone else in the project to review a series of their choice and in return review something picked by one of their fellow bloggers/podcasters.

The goal is threefold for everyone involved:

  • Mixing up what you watch and review.
  • Getting other people to watch things you feel deserve more attention.
  • Interacting with others thus creating possibilities for cross-blog readership / cross-podcast listenership.

We will then make a circular list of everyone involved in the project that only we will know the order of. We will take care to make sure those who have watched a lot will be put with others who have watched a lot; those who are newer to anime will similarly be put with others who have not watched as much. From there the order will then be randomized.

Once we get everyone’s picks we will then pass on the shows to the recipients. No one except us will know the names of the person who gave you your choices. You then pick the show you are going to watch. Everyone is responsible for getting their own material for the review.

You then have until late December to watch the show you were assigned and write a review. On the week of Christmas, everyone will post their reviews for the Secret Santa Project. We would prefer you to post your review on Christmas Eve but you can alter it as to the schedule of your blog or podcast. On Christmas Day, we will reveal the name of who had who as a Secret Santa along with a small post about the project.

Why we don’t do manga secret santa.
