We need one, now!!!!!!!!! Let's do it, MikeMirzayanov. Or maybe we should ask atcoder for this one?

 » 2 years ago, # |   +146 Yes, atcoder mentioned they got a major donation recently. Surely that will be more than enough to fund an anime. They could even pass it off as a promotion effort. It's genius! Just think about it; all the weebs from far and wide will learn of Competitive Programming and will surely want to do what the anime characters do, just as I've started drinking Dr Pepper since I've seen Okabe Rintaro (my pfp) claim that it is the drink of an intellectual. Let the new era begin! Era of weeb cpers!
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +99 Exactly, it's just like how Hikaru no Go made go popular among all those western weebs. It would be a... shall I say... divine move?!
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +123 Protagonist sweating as he looks at Running on test 42, frantically trying to hack random/hashing solution of the opposite faction ... oh man just think of the possibilities!
•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +41 rng_58, please!!!
•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +46 Suddenly, screen goes dark and the ending theme starts... cliffhanger time!
•  » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +179 Next episode, MLE on test 149
•  » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +142 Damnit! I shouldn't have used their treap implementation! I should have known they rigged the public version while they use a private one. ARGH How was I so naive to fall for such a cheap trick?
•  » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +90 Scene showing everyone participating in the biggest coding event of the world, leaderboard freezes 1 hour before the contest ends and our favourite character is currently ranked 3 and desperately trying to break into the top of the leaderboard.... An idea clicks, equations fits, time complexity satisifed, he starts typing, clicking and clacking desperately on the keyboard trying to complete the solution in the last 10 minutes... He finishes the code, compiles... ... ... Successful compilation... Sample tests passess on local machine... Uploads the code on the server... Episode ends...New Episode Starts The hero character goes to click submit.... He is going to press the left click... Contest has ended. Thanks for your participation... Misses the final submission by just a few seconds... Desperate, sad...Leaderboard Unfreezes Top 2 fails system testing.. MLE on test 149... Our hero wins on time penalty... Phewww! HE FINALLY DID IT!!!!

•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +31 You thought I forgot to clear the stack?? for( int tc = 1; tc <= T; ++tc, top = 0 ) SHI-NEEE BAKAYARO
 » 2 years ago, # |   +338 We need reality TV show. Loser of weekly contest is kicked from island. 3-day open hacking phase to provide drama before systests. Gossip, tears, etc.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +243 Night-time interview with anonymous person: "I knew countertest for saketh's submission but didn't hack him this week because he's an idiot and I'll beat him in final round"
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +32 saketh to Everyone Else on the Island: Did you hear that tourist used spaces instead of tabs in the last Global Round?Everyone at Home: GASP!
 » 2 years ago, # |   -130 Start thinking rationally. It will not be popular. Very very few people in the world know what programming (not even competitive programming) is. Nobody will produce an anime for 10k viewers.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +34 Well hey..I didn't know what butt wrestling was either.
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +14 You speaking about Keijo!!! ? I see, you're a man of culture as well. :)
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +74 Very very few people in the world know what programming is Huh?
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   -127 Please enable your brain.
•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +20 Almost everyone has heard of programming. I would estimate at least 20% of the world population knows what programming is...
•  » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   -55 I would estimate 100% of people below 25 know about cybersport. It is thousands times more popular than competitive programming. And I don't see any anime about cybersport. Why? It will be surely more popular than anime about CP, but still no one makes it.
•  » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +19 Maybe they should.
•  » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +12 There is actually anime / manga about esport: Quanzhi Gaoshou =).
•  » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   -59 >> Ranked #460>> Popularity #515It is so popular that none of my friends who watches anime know about it.Thanks anyway.
•  » » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +8 Speaking about MMOs, will Sword Art Online qualify? Pretty good popularity, eh?Not that MMOs considered to be a sport though.
•  » » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   0 If you like esports, you will love this anime. Watch this.
•  » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   -9 The top review of that anime says it's NOT about e-sports (I didn't even add the uppercase). It's some hyperfuturistic online game, a much more common genre.
•  » » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +3 I actually read some of that manga; and I classify it as about esport. Of course it's not about a real game, and also not a realistic story about an esport player.
•  » » » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   -21 "You" can also classify it as a magical girl anime, so what? I gather that it's not about a realistic game and it's not about the players, but a genre like VRMMO (again, as I said, quite common) with a detail that they're playing it competitively.There's a huge difference between a setting that's in a game and a setting where the game is on a computer screen and the focus is on players IRL.
•  » » » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 4 →   +4 You can take a quick look at this wiki page about a team in the anime. From there, you can gather info such as: Happy is an eSports team that debuted during the qualifiers of Season 9. Wei Chen is invited by Ye Xiu to join Happy with the goal of winning the Championships. In the offline stage of the Challengers League, They lose to Trader 3:7 in the Group Stage, whilst defeating Mysterious Fantasy 10:0, and Ten Steps One Kill and Cloud Pavillion 9:1. BTW the setting is also not in a game. It's about the players in real world.So I obviously classify it as an esport anime. I honestly have no idea what the top review was saying. I also didn't really want to argue about this, but whatever =).Edit: On its fandom wiki page, they also state that The King's Avatar is a novel about eSports.
•  » » » » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   0 I've seen this one. Can confirm.. it's all about being competitive in gaming. The actual game they use is so typical that it's more about a player being so badass that he wrecks his competition and takes revenge on the people who cast him out.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +10 On the otherhand, a lot of weebs and anime lovers , A LOT, will get motivated to join and explore competitive programming. It's a good venture to expand the domain and increase influence. Also, I myself being an avid fan of anime can't wait to see something related to competitive programming. Maybe it'll be adrenaline boosting like many sports anime like haikyuu. Can't wait to find out!
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   -54 No, not a lot. A lot of weebs don't know what programming is, that's the truth. If you throw away your first feelings and emotions, you will understand it.
•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +5 You aren't understanding what I'm saying. I am saying, there are A HUGE AMOUNT of people who love anime and are very fond of it. And if such an anime is made, out of that whole community a lot of people who may not know about competitive might get introduced to the concept.
•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +16 Lot of weebs didn’t know what go was either until Hikaru no Go came around. Now a very large body of western go players credit Hikaru no Go as the reason they started playing.
•  » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   -58 Everyone in the world knows that go is a board game, like chess or gomoku. It is a common knowledge. If you discover it from anime, you are just an underdeveloped person.
•  » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +38 Really? In my memory go was basically unknown in the west (aside from weebs) before DeepMind whipped everybody. But you can’t discount the fact that even if many people knew about it (which was not really the case), HnG was the catalyst to start playing for a significant number of people.
•  » » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   0 Wut, I only know maybe two people irl who knew what Go is before AlphaGo.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +19 Dude dude dude dude, I did not know what karuta was before watching Chihayafuru. But that didn't stop me from enjoying it.
 » 2 years ago, # |   -11 no please i am still watching s1 of volleyball
 » 2 years ago, # |   +46 There is a time limit, there are constraints, I have to overcome what lies ahead of me. I am surrounded, surrounded by Russians. Man, they are fast, what if I am not a Russian, I can make a name for myself. I am not gonna give up. 諦めない 絶対に(anime OP plays).
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +10 And maybe include some topcoders as legends which mc is trying to catch up to. Can't wait to see caricatures of Errichto, tourist, mnbvmar Radewoosh Benq etc.
 » 2 years ago, # |   -27 no
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +18 yes
 » 2 years ago, # | ← Rev. 5 →   0 that'd be great if it comes out for real.
 » 2 years ago, # |   +59 Let's share (un)original concepts: The not-so-eventful life of One Submission Man, who's been digging through countless no-name chinese online judges for God knows how long, only to feel the sheer disappointment of getting WA once again in his life.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   0 Are you the same Shafin Ahmed from Miles band ?
 » 2 years ago, # |   +18 Spoiler: the last episode will be dark room with computers. On the one side there will be bunch of experts and CM's writing unreliable heuristics and optimising constant shouting "MUDAMUDA" and on the other the warrior awoo writing tricky testcases dismoraling opponents with epic phrases.

•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   0 LMAO I nearly burst into laugh at midnight.
 » 2 years ago, # |   +8 I think it should be Isekai.MC stuck in the afterlife after participating in "Code art Online"
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   0 Of course, MC must have a harem .
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +19 Agreed, there aren't enough isekai anime being produced.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   0 I hope this will be better than Sword Art Online
 » 2 years ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   -12 Dont ask atcoder for anime, otherwise entire anime would be in japanese just like his editorials and we international users will not be able to watch it.
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +52 "All in all, they dedicate almost 5 hrs ( maybe even more, I can't comprehend it ), to help others and contribute to the coding community."I can assure you that they spend much more time than that, preparing the problemset takes days (and for Grand Contest they need to come up with the ideas (which is mostly the hardest part), preparing the data and stuff takes days especially when there are some difficult wrong solutions to fail. Preparing a good contest can take even months from the beginning of preparation to the day of contest.
•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +5 Of course I understand that. I was trying to point out that it is ATLEAST that many hours, at the bare minimum. And, that analysis was for the day of the contest only. I agree that many days are spent making each problem. There are a lot of factors to keep in mind too, when making a contest. And I don't know what else, because I haven't been part of any such event.As I said, it is a phenomenal thing that everyone ( Atcoder, Codeforces, Codechef etc ) is doing, and that too religiously, again and again. I apologise if it seemed as if I was underestimating them by that calculation. I really want to thank the whole community of problem setters, editorialists, everyone who is involved in any way in management and unhindered completion of each contest/event.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +24 But AtCoder editorials usually have English versions below the Japanese...
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +14 They're like subtitles.
•  » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +19 So, basically nothing would change if AtCoder makes anime, right?
•  » » » » » 2 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   0 AtCoder is weeb CF, so every their video editorial is anime :qed:
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   0 Believe me, there are plenty of good translators who can do this job.
 » 2 years ago, # |   -31 There is such a thing, and season 4 is being released in November.It's called rick and morty.
 » 2 years ago, # |   -16 Well, there is an anime about anime. And also this weird shit.I can see how it'd work — by not making it about competitive programming — but I bet you're not thinking about logistics at all. Who will make it, who will read it, who will publish it and who will pay for it? Do you want to treat it as a commissioned comic? Go ahead, get someone who can draw well, make a crowdfund for it. We'll see if it keeps getting enough money. Is it supposed to be a free hobby thing? Who will do it for free on a consistent basis? Do you want to make it more than a niche thing? You don't have much of a choice except going through a publisher, and good luck pitching that idea to a comic publisher. Animating is a whole other pile of work.
•  » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   -6 Just let codeforces/atcoder/others handle the logistics, start crowdfunding, look for authors etc. We enjoy!
•  » » » 2 years ago, # ^ |   +5 Just leave it unspecified other people. That's a bold move, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off.

 » 2 years ago, # |   -10 Yes please! By the way, has there been any anime made on programming (in general) yet?
 » 2 years ago, # |   -7 You are a genius. I am already waiting for it.
 » 2 years ago, # |   +1 Sooooooooo... I started thinking about an OP for this masterpiece, and I actually think slightly modifying this works out really well (e.g. substitute "game" for "code").Madhouse, where you at?
 » 2 years ago, # |   +66 There's a fanfiction (in Japanese) based on ICPC Asia Regional in 2011. Read it through instead of just waiting for a CP anime.
