The rules

If you create a tag for a sports anime (see the list below) that aired in 2005 or later, I will award you a 50-reputation bounty 100-reputation bounty (With help from Madara Uchiha), provided that:

  • The question is posted during the month of April 2015.
  • The question receives a net score of at least +1 by May 7, 2015, and isn't closed or deleted. (We want good questions, not bad ones.)
  • You have posted at least one answer on the site with a score of at least 0. (Bounties can only be awarded to answers, not questions.)
  • You have less than 15,000 reputation at the time of this posting. (This excludes Krazer / Jon Lin / Logan / Eric: users with 15k rep will have almost all privileges even after the site graduates.) This is a change from the March 2015 contest, where the cutoff was 10,000 reputation.

If you do not have enough reputation to create a tag (150 rep), that's fine - post the question anyway with , and somebody will come by and make a tag for you. I will give you (rather than the higher-rep user who physically creates the tag) credit for creating the tag.

There is no limit on the number of bounties you can win (other than that you obviously can't win more bounties than there are tags to be made).

Sports anime from 2005-present that don't have tags

Baseball

Combat sports other than wrestling

Cycling

Soccer (i.e. non-American football)

Tennis

Volleyball

Vehicle racing

Wrestling

Other

This list is substantially derived from this AniDB search and similar searches for the sub-tags underneath themes::sports, with some after-the-fact curation because AniDB has dubious tagging in some places.

I'm sure this list isn't exhaustive. If you want bounty credit for a sports anime from 2005 onwards that I haven't listed here, just leave a comment on this post and I'll have a look at it. I am willing to be fairly open with regard to what counts as a "sports" anime.

April is over in all time zones, and all relevant questions have a score of at least +1. Here are the awards for the month:

This means that the following users win bounties (plus matching from Madara at his discretion):

Thanks to all users for participating; I'll award the bounties in three batches. Also, many thanks to Jon Lin for creating , but he's above the rep cutoff, so he doesn't win a bounty.

Next month's post is up. The theme: visual novels (and anime adaptations thereof).
