The Claim Your Bishoujo/Bishounen! Early Alert System has been activated!

Okay, here we go again with the CYBB Summer Festival!

A few changes from last year, but nothing too extravagant. On Friday, we’ll claim one character as usual. On Saturday, we’ll do something slightly different from last time. This time, you’ll be able to claim two characters in return for absolutely nothing! Just claim two characters. However… You may instead claim three characters in return for giving up two. No gifting allowed either. You must release two old claims if you want to claim three new ones. Doesn’t that sound fun?! If you don’t want to release your characters, you still get to claim two characters on Saturday. For Sunday, the opposite gender round has been altered slightly. You must claim a character of the opposite gender from the claim you made on Friday, however this time, you may claim a character of the same gender provided they are not from the same series as the character claimed on Friday. And when I say series, I mean the whole franchise! So if for example you claimed a female character from any Fate series, you are barred from claiming another female character from any fate related media. This includes spinoffs and such as well. Finally, on Monday, we’ll be doing my still favorite round, the Noun Round! You can claim any person, place, or thing which exists in an Anime/Manga/VN. Furniture, books, buildings, countries, continents, vehicles, planets, animals, and of course, people. Just be sure that you still mention where your noun is coming from like always.

The rounds will start at 9pm ET/6pm PT each day.

Lastly, For those of you who like to wait, you can do multiple days in one post, so long as they’ve already started. (so you can do all 4 days in one post any time after the start of Monday’s round.

Here is the schedule for the weekend:

  • Friday, August 24 (428a): You may claim one character as usual.

  • Saturday, August 25 (428b): You may claim three characters today, but if you do, you must give up two of the characters you have already claimed in the past. No gifting. If you don’t want to participate, you can only claim two characters today.
    (characters released in this round can immediately be claimed by someone else, so be careful!)

  • Sunday, August 26 (428c): Characters claimed today must be the opposite gender of the character claimed on Friday. A character of the same gender can be claimed if they are from the different series/franchise as the character claimed on Friday.

  • Monday, August 27 (428d): You may claim any person, place, or thing from an Anime/Manga/VN that you want. Literally anything at all. You can of course just claim a character this round like you would any other, but a round this broad in scope may never happen again may not happen again until next year. Make it count!

If you choose to participate in all the rounds, you’ll end up with as many as six new claims! By the way, it goes without saying, but is worth mentioning anyway, that Rule 7 is not in play here. So no gifting or trading of characters is allowed.

The fun starts on Friday August 24th at 9:00 PM, ET/6:00 PM PT.
Some rules may be subject to change before start of round on 08/24/18
